I don't think I actually finished 10 games from last year last year. I'm still playing catch up and waited on others to play on PS5 after the performance boosts.
What I did play though, here's what I've got in no particular order from what I remember:
Persona 5 Royal - (haven't finished it, but played original four times so and it's one of my favorite games of all time so...?)
Final Fantasy VII Remake - Exactly what I hoped for here; it's different enough to differentiate itself and stand out from the original while feeling almost completely different in key ways
Tony Hawk 1+2 HD - I didn't remember being so bad at these games, but I loved returning to them. Most of the time I played, I was just muttering "sorry Tony" everytime I fell off my board or botched a trick
Crash Bandicoot 4 - I knocked the game a bunch in my review, but I genuinely did enjoy it despite my harsh criticism. I give harsh words because I love the franchise, and there were really awesome levels here.
Last of Us Part II - Again I haven't finished this one. Coming from the area and playing a game where everyone dies from a pandemic and many of the survivors being super politically charged violent Nazi people suddenly made the game too real too soon.
Animal Crossing New Horizons - I didn't spend a lot of time with this one. I adore New Leaf, but the introduction of crafting really made it less fun for me, and too much micromanaging. I still love the characters and charm and all that, but just too much extra economy with materials I needed to keep track of.
Huntdown- I enjoyed this a ton with special thanks to Don. While there a little too many on the nose quotes pulled from movies and references, I love how the game plays and feels, especially the boss fights. As a perfectionist there was definitely that sense of needing to restart to learn the level the best way and get all the briefcases before going on, and so I'd restart a ton! But I loved it all, and love how each character plays a little different. If only it had online multiplayer I could play with my brothers.
Doom Eternal - Again, haven't finished it, but blasting demons in the face to metal music and the added strategy of having to kill guys in different ways to recover armor, health, ammo, etc, is exhilerating. I also love the more open levels with the map. It encourages a little bit of exploration, but not enough to get lost. So you can search for secrets that tie into upgrades for further levels if you want, or plow straight though.
Neversong - Another I reviewed. I really admire when developers of Flash games end up going on to make other things, and this one didn't disappoint. It's short enough to not be obtrusive, and could use a little more mechanically, but is always a fun time just to see where things go and talk to interesting characters.
Ikenfell - My most recent review. I really enjoyed this one, less because it's an awesome, retro-style RPG, and more because of what it represents and teaches about characters and inclusivity. This is a game that ends up being specifically about inclusion, even though the plot doesn't specifically address it in the ways you expect. The underlying themes can be extremely powerful.
Super Mario 3D All Stars - This is my first time playing through Mario 64, and I picked this up the night before the fuckery in the US went down. I was really thankful to have some Mario to fall back on. Sure the camera isn't always perfect, but the amount of joy I get from jumping and trying to do different challenges is just unparalleled in the genre. Whether it's 64, Sunshine or Galaxy, I say they're all a 10/10.
