Your 2023 Top Game Pick


UltraMega

Recommended Posts

What is your top game pick of 2023, and why?

 

 

My pick: Armored Core 6

 

 

This game was so overdue for me as someone who absolutely loved the AC series on PS2, where it shined the most. From Soft did a great job of recapturing the nostalgic feel while also making the game feel modern enough to avoid feeling dated. The graphics seem simple at first as you inspect the environments. It all feels a little low-fi initially, but once the real mech battles ramp up and you see how many particle effects are being pushed, it all clicks into modern mech perfection. 

 

My only complaint is that it's a seriously hard game. I am yet to beat it, stuck on a late game boss. But the game gives so many options for how to spec your mech, it's just a matter of time until I find the right combo. 

 

I wish I had played more 2023 games, but 2023 has felt like year of build up for the high-quality games that big studios have yet to bring to fruition. Here's hoping 2024 is the year UE5 titles, and titles from competing engines really start to shine. 

 

Also, most anticipated game for 2024?

Mine: HellBlade.

System Shock Remake. So faithful to the original that it could be considered a 1994 game, but still my favorite of 2023.

 

Most anticipated for 2024: also could be considered an older game, Horizon Forbidden West.

Does it have to be a 2023 released title?

I want to say Wobbly Life.  Released in 2020 though, but its still in Alpha stages, so maybe it counts?  It's probably the game I had the most fun in, in 2023 though.
