Classics. What are they? Mario? Banjo? Sonic? Zelda?
What are the classics of this current generation of the myriad of titles we can choose amongst?
Out of all the games you recently played, which are the classics in your opinion? Which do you think will make its mark on gaming history? Are there any games that you’ll be coming back to play over and over again?
When asked this question, here are my “classics” that I’d suggest to anyone.
1. Super Mario Odyssey
I don’t think there’s been any Mario game recently that captured that spirit of Mario 64 back in the day. Mario Odyssey brings that back.
Not exactly, but it rekindles the feeling once again. I think this is one of the best Mario games to date. The previous entries were all just bleh. Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 were OK. Mario 64 was bomb. Odyssey is a close runner up.
Excellent level design. OST is outstanding. Plenty of memorable moments (other than New Donk City).
2. The Witcher 3
Probably my favorite entry to series. This one did it all and brought back the narrative and storyline that makes you call out from work. Superb artwork. Amazing voice overs.
And the immersion of a kid in a candy store while on a sugar high playing Zelda on rollerskates.
Witcher 3 was actually one of the games I was planning to wait until the price dropped. But after all the raging reviews, I had no choice but to pick it up.
How often do you see a game with visuals that are so well done you can’t believe it’s from a no-name studio? Cuphead was that game and brought Studio MDHR to life. The game had the artwork that captivated the old-school Disney cartoons.
PLUS it had gameplay. I think Cuphead will be a game that won’t be lost into the realms anytime soon. Especially considering that Tesla lets you play it on their cars.
Those would be the top 3 if I had to pick and cut out the right.
