    Salt and Sanctuary

    the meat of the game is its melee combat. so, 2D Action.

    Hollow Knight

    so? other games of this genre don't have this restriction.

    addictive as hell! couldn't get enough of this game. thank god there's an arena mode.

    Salt and Sanctuary

    excellent 2D Souls-like. even though Ross classified it as a platformer, that's not really what this game is about (platforming is the least interesting part). combat, atmosphere, story — that's the main course.

    We Happy Few

    this game would've worked much better if it was a linear story-driven shooter/brawler.

    Hollow Knight

    this game has no mouse support. wait, I think that didn't came out right. what I meant to say is that THIS PC GAME FROM 2017 HAS NO MOUSE SUPPORT. to put this into perspective: even the original, legendarily horrible Dark Souls port had basic mouse support (it felt awful to use, but it was functional enough for me to beat the game). no such luxury here — because having support for the primary input device of this platform is a luxury, apparently.

    The Surge

    The Surge successfully copies the Souls formula, and this time with a personality of its own! it's a huge improvement over this developer's previous game, Lords of the Fallen (which, I should point out, is still a decent game in it's own right). Pros: - intense tactical & reactive combat. - fantastic hub-based level design with clever shortcuts, reminiscent of the original Dark Souls. - interesting story, setting, and sci-fi concepts. - dismemberment of enemies as a looting mechanic. - soul-crushing difficulty really makes you feel like you achieve something when you overcome it. - great visual style. - good graphics, solid performance. Cons: - some weapons and attacks are significantly more useful than others. - late-game enemies are so powerful that you have to fill most of the implant slots with health boosts, otherwise the game gets frustrating. - bland characters, especially the protagonist. - the game does a poor job of explaining how to defeat certain difficult enemies. - the ending is not particularly satisfying, considering the absolute hell we have to go through to get there. overall, The Surge is a great game as long as you can get over some of its quirks and don't have wrong expectations. I absolutely recommend it, unless you are a 'casual' gamer that doesn't like to be challenged.

    Postal 2: Paradise Lost

    the original got boring after about 10 minutes.

    Harvester

    puzzles in this game are beyond obtuse.

    Lakeview Cabin

    apart from its atmosphere and artstyle, this game doesn't have much to offer.

    Layers of Fear

    kinda boring. didn't finish it.

    Observer

    great atmosphere and interesting story, but the trippy sequences were tedious.

    Little Nightmares

    a true MASTERPIECE of its genre. says everything it needs to say without uttering a single word. powerful atmosphere & story. delivered some of the best gaming experiences of my life.

    Neverending Nightmares

    one of the best of its kind. really drives home the point of "psychological horror". psychosis & nightmares, what else could you possibly want?

    Uncanny Valley

    the timer kills it.
