It would be Armored core 6.
There were certain moments in the game where i was in Awe. Namely.
- Fighting the Ice Worm. Rusty’s “I won’t miss”.
- Fighting against Rusty. With his line “I won’t stop”.
- Fighting with Rusty. When he comes to help you in one of the final acts of the game.
- Fighting against Carla. And learning about her Motto.
- Freedom of customisation of mechs.
I never felt hard stuck with this game the same way as Dark Souls or Sekiro. Sure I would grind and farm money for better gear, but that is really about it.
Armored core 6 was a lot of fun a had in a while. Fast paced action game.
Lets looks at the nominees for game of the year 2023. I will give my thoughts on each game (Even though I have not played it).
#h3 Alan wake 2
The criticism here is that it is not as shallow as a pond, it is as shallow as a puddle.
#h3 Baldur’s gate 3
turn based combat will always be slow - And all the combat in this game is turn based. It is also chance based too.
#h3 Marvel’s spiderman 2
First I would like to state that I liked the original model faces from the first game over the second game.
Another criticism of the game I have seen is that Spiderman 2 is too similar to the first game.
#h3 resident evil 4
Watching the comparsion between the old game and the newer game. I prefer the old game. It had soul.
#h3 super mario bros. wonder
Never played super mario bros. wonder. But given that it is nintendo, it is only available on the switch.
#h3 The legend of zelda: tears of the kingdom
I have touched this game a little bit (Thanks Amita!). But never got really invested into the game.
Since Baldur’s gate 3 is game of the year for 2023, I will play it from start to end and then give my thoughts about it.
Update! - I am having a few technical issues with playing Baldur’s gate 3. I am running the game with low graphics and frame capped at 30 fps.
