I usually throw one of these threads out in the spring after people have had plenty of time with the fall games. So what’s your favorite games, top 5, 7, 10, 12.5, whatever lol

1. AC Odyssey - Would never guess an AC game would top my list but this one is just fantastic and has so much gameplay, I’ve never played a single player game this much and doesn’t seem like I’m going to stop anytime soon lol. It’s the best AC game in every way and the awesome setting puts it over the top for me

2. Dying Light - This is a game I was super hyped for and it lived up to it. Intense night gameplay, amazing animation technology, good story, loved the parkour....great game and developer really supported it post launch

3. Spider-Man - When you make the best Spider-Man game ever by a good margin, you deserve all the monies lol

4. Titanfall 2 - The only game I can think of that is both beloved by fans and at the same time criminally underrated

5. Ori - Never did get around to replaying this one but it was an amazing experience. A must play on Xbox

Honorable Mention: Far Cry 5 and Gears 4 - Both games I’ve played through multiple times and have amazing graphics backed up by stellar gameplay. Far Cry would be higher if not for some poor design decisions that never got patched out

I don't have an order, but I would say:

Forza Horizon 4
God of War
Hellblade
Nier Automata
The Last Guardian
Crackdown 3
Rise of the Tomb Raider

I don't know if I can pick an all around favorite. If I was forced to, it might be Nier Automata or Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Judging by the lists so far I've missed quite a bit of games. Off the top of my head I'd probably go with Horizon Zero Dawn. The entire game is amazing but just the world alone is something that I would want to live in.

Have you spent any money on Apex? Just curious if their F2P design is working for them.
