When I first reviewed Crusader Kings II in 2012, I called it “one of the most challenging, entertaining and rewarding strategy games [I’ve] ever played.” Four years later, it turns out that was only the beginning of my long journey with the game.
We Happy Few is meant to be a sprawling survival game played out on a maggot-ridden, drug-addled British stage. But it doesn’t have to be.
Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a fascinating trend out of Seattle: developers leaving Bungie to make their own games.
It makes sense that some monsters aren’t immediately available in Pokémon Go: the roster has “legendaries,” and the best way to feel like they are special is to make them rare. But why has nobody found a Ditto yet?
They’ve been called many things over the years. Isometric RPGs, hack’n’slash RPGs, ARPGs, Diablo clones. But one thing is certain: They wouldn’t exist if Diablo didn’t come out in 1996. Diablo and its sequels spawned a whole catalog of isometric action RPGs.
You’re heading to the store to get a PS4 right now, and need to know which games to get. (Keep your eyes on the road, please!) Or you’re home, all set up, realizing you want more stuff to play.
