well, I just bought final fantasy vii interlude new for $37.99 from gamestop. I've been looking forward to this game (have it on the exploited ps4, but I don't play games on that system). I think that's a pretty decent price when it's like normally $69.99 (yeah, it's one of those games). haha
I think my favourite game of the year was Guardians of the Galaxy. I almost didn't even get it because I didn't think it looked that good in videos. It took a little while to get used to the voice actors but they were so good that by the end I preferred them to the movie actors. It's silly but I really loved the "huddle" mechanic during combat.
Tough one. Graphics-wise Rift Apart, by far. Really enjoyed Ghost of Tsushima, I played the base game on PS5 since I never owned a PS4, but the 'PS5 upgrade' with Iki island was certainly mediocre. Can't believe they actually spent effort on lip synching. But as a whole, I'm going with Demon Souls. Sekiro made me a huge fan of From-Software which I why I picked up the game, and it's been awesome.
