How do you have a game at number 2 that you're barely 1/4th of the way through.

Sometimes you just know. Even by playing and exploring and continuing to opening more how ever long I’ve been playing is utterly fantastic. This has everything I love about gaming. FPS, exploring? Shooting, bosses, got it all of what I love.
Pre-emptive sure, but I just know.

I'll do one a year rather than try to rank them:

2016 - Ratchet and Clank (PS4; I wound up playing through it at least 5 times)
2017 - Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)
2018 - Spider-Man (PS4 Pro)
2019 - Luigi's Mansion 3 (Switch)
2020 - Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5)
2021 (so far) - It Takes Two (Xbox Series X)

Other strong contenders:

Spoiler:
2016 - Kirby: Planet Robobot (3DS); Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition (Xbox One); Titanfall 2 (PS4)
2017 - Gravity Rush 2 (PS4); NieR: Automata (PS4); Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4/PS4 Pro); Assassin's Creed: Origins (Xbox One X)
2018 - God of War (PS4 Pro); Red Dead Redemption 2 (Xbox One X); Assassin's Creed: Odyssey (Xbox One X)
2019 - Far Cry: New Dawn (Xbox One X); Control (Xbox One X)
2020 - Maneater (Xbox One X); Astro's Playroom (PS5); Immortals: Fenyx Rising (Xbox Series X)

1. Nier: Automata (PC)
2. Control (PC)
3. DOOM (Xbox One)
4. Dark Souls III (PC)
5. Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

Hon Mention. Nier: Replicant (PC) (fastest I've ever put 30 hours into a game)

That said, I have a ridiculous backlog to get through.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are my top four. There’d be a lot in competition for the fifth slot.

Those are excellent choices. I would leave a spot open at the moment for next month’s Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart. It looks really special.
