Whoops... I've let this topic slip by me.
Some really good games so far. DmC and Metro Last Light didn't make my 8 but I had a great time with both, in particular Last Light. I just loved going outside and having to think about your mask in terms of air and damage an it absolutely nails the atmosphere. Really need to check out Exodus someday.
Rogue Legacy is a phenomenal game. I put so many hours into that on Vita. For me, only Dead Cells has come close to that same experience but I think I prefer Rogue Legacy as it's a lot more open. Also this song is just so good from the game.
I really need to check out the second game that studio made that flopped.
Arkham Origins is probably my favourite of the Arkham series. I was fortunate enough to dodge the vast majority of bugs people so that never came into it for me. I loved the concept of it and I thought it was an excellent origin story for the relationship between Joker and Batman. Troy Baker absolutely nails it. This game was pretty much a huge reason why Knight was a big disappointment in terms of bosses. The step down was just huge.
Also I always remembered this TV Spot for it and thought it just totally nails what Batman stands.
