    Atari Flashback Classics for Switch is one of the biggest and best classic game compilations ever produced. Not only are there a ton of enjoyable games for any kind of gamer, everything is implemented spot-on for big screen or on-the-go retro fun.

    Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 3 is the strongest volume so far for retro game enthusiasts who want to play some rarities and unreleased gems. At the same time, it's the weakest volume when it comes to having accessible fun.

    Now that all 5 episodes of The Council are available to play through from beginning to end, it's a must-buy for fans of story-driven adventures who are looking for something a little different. If you can get past the strange voice acting and character models, you'll enjoy diving into the complex and devious story that gradually unfolds within Lord Mortimer's mysterious manor.

    With XCOM available for almost every platform, why anyone would play a subpar version of it is beyond me. Unfortunately, that's just what Jagged Alliance: Rage! is except with an admittedly clever sneaking component.

    Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an ambitious take on XCOM but it simply doesn't do enough with the established formula to make a worthwhile campaign. That being said, it definitely has some amazing visuals and cool stealth mechanics.

    Youtubers Life: OMG Edition is a barebones sim with a monotonous gameplay loop that'll make you never want to be a YouTube star.

    Override: Mech City Brawl presents a fun premise yet unfortunately; it doesn't offer any sort of substantial long-lasting gameplay.

    Nippon Marathon is a ridiculous bakage game that's a ton of fun with friends but its annoying gameplay is only tolerable in short bursts.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an impressive package to say the least. Although it doesn't quite elevate the already established core gameplay to the next level, what's here is still a frantic and fun fighter that anyone can easily enjoy.

    Toki is one of those games from the past that doesn't hold up very well today. That being said, gamers who enjoy retro 2D action games will surely get a kick out of this remake, especially considering just how awesome it looks and sounds.

    Viviette is undeniably the best 2D horror game that I've ever played. Even if you don't particularly like the genre, you still might be pleasantly surprised with what Viviette has to offer.

    Hunter's Legacy: Purrfect Edition took a highly underrated Metroidvania game and made it even better with many improvements and additions. Gamers who enjoy the genre are sure to fall in love with this kitty and her memorable adventure.

    I wasn't expecting Conduct Together! to be as difficult as it is but its level of challenge is what makes it such a rewarding game to master. So, if you enjoy testing both hemispheres of your brain as you optimize puzzle solutions then this is a game for you.

    Gris doesn't offer anything particularly exciting gameplay-wise but its awe-inspiring world will be more than enough to suck you in.

    Space Pirate Trainer is a fast-paced and fun high score chaser but it has a few annoying aspects and is a rather short-lived experience.

    Gamers who enjoy complex puzzles that take a while to gradually unravel will absolutely love their time with Transpose. Its breathtaking world and clever situations are awe-inspiring and solving each puzzle room will make you feel like a genius.

    Gungrave VR will make you feel cool as you shoot your foes while dodging and occasionally reflecting their projectiles but it's so sloppily put together that it's hard to enjoy the action for longer than a few minutes at a time.

    Rush VR is a beautiful and enjoyable wingsuit VR racer with a ton of content. If that sounds fun then you won't regret giving it a try.

    The retro premise of Super Life of Pixel is fantastic but the degree of challenge is a bit too hard for its own good. As a result, many casual gamers will likely give up well before experiencing everything it has to offer.

    BugsBox VR may be an obscure game but it's definitely one worth playing, especially if you enjoy arcade-style experiences.

    If you're a JRPG fan who has never played Atelier Rorona or only played the original version then The Alchemist of Arland DX is definitely worth a purchase, especially if you enjoy lighthearted whimsical tales set in delightful worlds.

    Earth Defense Force 5 is an EDF game through and through. Although it doesn't feature anything particularly new and exciting, it still makes for an enjoyable and ridiculous time that's best played with friends.

    If you're looking for a relaxed yet challenging puzzler that you can enjoy in short bursts then CricktoGame is worth a purchase.

    Although it's been kicking around a while, Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut is a great retro-inspired game that holds up impressively well.

    Not everyone will appreciate the crass world of Demetrios but those who enjoy point and click adventure games and ham-fisted humour will definitely like what this Big Cynical Adventure has to offer.

    If running, jumping, and farting around while a huge monster chases you sounds like fun then you'll likely enjoy this off-the-wall indie.

    I can't imagine anyone playing Storm Boy and getting more enjoyment from it than they can from reading the book or watching one of its theatrical adaptations. That being said, it's still a charming and delightful game, that's for sure.

    Fans of felines looking for a relaxing survival exploration game for their Switch will fall in love with Cattails. Its strange world has a certain charm that I've never experienced before and I'm sure you'll agree.

    Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection is merely an expanded version of Persona 4: Dancing All Night with no substantial changes or additional modes. It's still fun but there's no denying that Atlus could have provided many more reasons to hit the dance floor.

    Gundemoniums is a huge improvement over Platine Dispositif's classic shmup Gundemonium Recollection. That being said, I can't help but wish more content was included because at its core, it's still a very short-lived game.
