Monster Hunter World was already an amazing game, jam-packed with seemingly bottomless amounts of content. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne somehow manages to improve everything the previous game did. A wider variety of new, challenging monsters to hunt, new moves for your weapon classes to pull off stunts previously thought only possible through cinematic cutscenes, and a metric ton of cool looking armor and weapons to grind for and show off to your friends. There is a good reason why this became Capcom's best-selling game of all time.

Streets of Rage 4's announcement stirred the hearts of those who grew up on the Sega Genesis, thinking this was too good to be true. Thankfully with its tight combat system, quality of life improvements, gorgeous hand-drawn visuals, and addictive soundtrack. Not only did it live up to the original Streets of Rage trilogy, but it also excelled, bringing in a new generation of fans itching to beat up bad guys.

Remnant: From the Ashes is an under-appreciated gem that captures the essence of Souls-like games while being accessible enough to attract newcomers to the challenging sub-genre. It has a massive, desolate world to explore, terrifying monsters to slay, and immensely fun weapons to craft from their remains or find in the world.
