DISCUSSION

this is a good list. As much as i cna see the complaints, I will still give a nod to mass effect : andromeda. yeah it had issues, I still think that bioware games live and die by their characters, and while a few took me time to get to really enjoy them. Plus i felt the pathfinder had more relatable humor than the shepard and I did so love the combat. it stinks the game was released in a state so buggy that it interfered with people’s ability to enjoy what was great about the game, but at 71 hours, I am still getting the bioware buzz from it. now I am not insane(well, ok, i am, but not in this case), nioh and zelda eat it for lunch, zelda was a @#$%ing miracle. but even a ok bioware game still is something that I take special pleasure with. and also, i need to finally build the new pc, because i want to try that divinity game.
