I'm going to try for about the fourth time to get into Destiny (even though it's been confusing as fuck for noobs for a while).

 

Get all the story shit out of the way and then it's a massive loop of bounty grinding. It's basically a very pretty skinner box with amazing shooting mechanics.

 

Although they're changing the way the bounties and shit work with Beyond Light AND I think they're reengineering the starting quests for new people as they're bring back the Cosmodrome from the first game so that might help you get back into it

Games of the generation:

Bloodborne
Inside
Outer Wilds
Overwatch
Red Dead Redemption 2
Return of the Obra Dinn
Super Mario Odyssey
The Last Guardian
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Titanfall 2
Undertale
What Remains of Edith Finch

 

This is a really great list. I've seen a lot of posts about how AAA is just the same old shit these days but the above shows just how lucky we've had it over the last 6 or 7 years.

That’s a pretty great list actually. I can’t remember them ever having reviewed Undertale though.

That Games of the Generation list is pretty good and a decent cross section of the gen. Interesting that Destiny isn't on there, now that Nate is no longer at the mag. Whither his legacy?

 

Since this is a straight-up-and-down 'games of the generation' list with no clarifying adjective I wouldn't have put Destiny in there either. If it was the Most Influential or Most Important or Nathan's Favourites then yes, there's a case to be made for it for sure.

 

Outraged about Slay The Spire not making it. I shall have to draft another letter.

Games of the generation:

Bloodborne - agreed
Inside - swap with A Short Hike
Outer Wilds - 100%
Overwatch - I loved it, but probably swappable with PUBG for overall impact.
Red Dead Redemption 2 - lol (go Witcher 3 instead)
Return of the Obra Dinn - acceptable
Super Mario Odyssey - Switch is last gen etc etc. Good.
The Last Guardian - acceptable
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - obligatory
Titanfall 2 - swap with Doom 2016
Undertale - the only game here I didn't like much, swap with Slay the Spire or Hades.
What Remains of Edith Finch - swap with Disco Elysium or something

I'm not going to rag on the list itself, but I just found it funny that, as I browsed through the calendar, Undertale was the first (and only) game in there that I actually agreed with. Clearly we have somewhat different taste :lol:

 

(for clarity: the majority I think are good choices, just not ones I'd have made myself, but Undertale was the only one I'd actually put in my own list. I was thus delighted at the final two-page spread)
