    Octopath Traveler. I completely fell in love with it. It's so rare and comforting for me to be truly enamored with a good rpg. So far I think I'm up for completing Primrose and H'annits' storylines at the least. I dig the amount of variety in it with different gameplay styles and storylines that all the characters offer though: it's a really fun and flexible game!
    I'm looking forward to Dead Cells and Wreckfest. Onrush gave me that arcade racer bug again and Wreckfest sounds like it's supposed to be pretty fun. Hopefully, Three Fields will have a winner with Dangerous Driving. It's so weird that we have to climb so far back to match Burnout 3: a game that came out in 2004. I guess that is the creative and simultaneously destructive power of EA.Edited 2 times. Last edited 2 hours ago by Unknown

    I love this game. I've tried almost all of the characters and I think I'm rolling with...
    Primrose - most interesting story and good buffs
    H'aanit - interesting story, highly versatile fighter
    Therion - lame story and boring personality but STEAL ability and good debuffs
    Alfyn - nice dood, good spells, useful ability

    I still need to try Tressa and Cyrus but I'm pretty sure my crew is locked down.Edited 9 hours ago by Unknown

    Strange Journey is in my mind one of the best rpgs out there and I can definitely see the connection in environment anomalies/cosmic horror/weird fiction themes with Annihilation.

    I came across the book Annihilation originally when I was following a Bloodborne thread. Annihilation was an okay movie adaptation but the first book that it's based on is so damn good. I highly recommend it, especially to those that are interested in the movie but haven't seen it. The book has such strange, intriguing imagery in it that is kind of, not ruined, but solidified by the imagery in the movie. It was definitely more interesting to read than to watch.

    I appreciate all the Octopath Traveler coverage on this site. I usually listen to these when I'm interested in the game being discussed but I am just enjoying Octopath so much that I want to try to limit the information that I take in about it as far as story spoilers go.

    I really love it and it's hit me in a way that I can appreciate it so well. Rpgs are so hit and miss for me when it actually comes to playing them and feeling really engaged. Persona 5 just bounced off me for instance after I really dug P3. I think it's fantastic that SquareEnix is investing more resources into the Switch. Rpgs like Octopath Traveler and indie games such as rogue likes are such a sweet spot for the system and gamers of my age I think.

    @NiceGuyNeon If Symphony of the Night counts, then it gets my vote too. XD

    Xenogears: An old EGM preview sold me on it. It sounded so interesting at the time by combining mechs and religion. I only made it past the first disc but it was a fun time. I would still like to play Chrono Trigger some day.

    I cannot wait to dive into Octopath Traveler this weekend. I'm going to keep on with Primrose's story from the prologue demo.

    This sounds like my kind of game. If you like grappling hook-thing games then I recommend Flinthook. It gets extremely challenging but if you play it without a goal of beating it in mind, it can be extremely fun and the sound/gameplay/graphics are on point.

    I am grinding away in Immortal Redneck, which I am enjoying way more than I thought I would (upgraded Sekhmet makes surviving for longer so much easier). I am also making slow and steady progress in Hollow Knight.

    Like many others on this post, I am looking forward to Octopath Traveler. I don't play a lot of rpgs but the style of that game has really grabbed my attention and I like Primrose's story.

    I really want to play Yoku's Island Express soon, it sounds so interesting! I have a feeling that Octopath Traveler and Dead Cells (when it hits Switch) are going to join my best games of this year. For me it's probably Hollow Knight, Onrush, and City of Brass so far.
