Pico Park
It's the best co-op game ever and it's only FIVE DOLLARS!
you know a game is made for multiplayer fun when it doesn't even let you play solo

Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The toys to life functionality hampered an otherwise fantastic game. The digital deluxe version and dlc were initially very expensive, but I bought into it and played for hundreds of hours. The Star Fox content was a very nice bonus, but the game itself had a good story and likable characters. They did a fantastic job of giving the real-time ship customization a believable in-universe explanation that enhanced the feeling of teamwork.

Swapping parts and pilots on the fly in order to capitalize on weaknesses, avoid a fail state, or to gain a burst of speed between hot-points on the surface of a planet had real benefits. This is because the late game was almost like an RTS where you’re scrambling across the solar system to keep the enemy from spreading. On the other hand, it was fun to let them spread because it meant more opportunities to engage capital ships in epic space battle fashion. Also, the way you fly and fight and interact with the environment is satisfyingly tactile for a vehicle-based experience which is enhanced by HD rumble.

Creating cool or ridiculous ship designs was also really fun. Loading several wings on one side and none on the other meant that I could have a “B-wing” with an off-center cockpit. Reversing the Arwing parts meant having a ship that looked a little bit like a Wolfen star fighter.

There’s only one advantage to having the physical toys: double weapons. By having 2 of the physics-based, shockwave canons, you could yeet enemies into oblivion. Or, you could mount dual shotguns and send out a hail of shrapnel. It was pretty much unnecessary, but brought an extra ounce of experimentation. I once mounted a battering ram facing forward and one facing backwards just to see what it would be like to instantly burst forward and backward on command.

@NeonPizza Cyber Shadow is terrific, and I feel it deserved a LOT more hype than it got. It's not just another pixel art indie game. There is an incredible level of intentionality in the stage designs, particularly noticeable when you start trying to speed run levels.

@SoManyHaveDied Pico Park is awesome! My kids and I had a great time playing that game. Some similarly great party games are Hidden in Plain Sight and Unspottable.

For me and I just started playing this but have played the series for years it's Earth Defence Force World Brothers. A great game for mindless fun and there's a fair bit to unlock. I think people over look earth defence force because it looks so budget or cheap but that's the whole point of it as it's a parody of SciFi b movies

We have done the impossible and that makes us mighty.

@Sparrow5579 Have you played it in handheld on Switch? Are the visuals super blurry like I've heard people say? How is the frame rate? I loved EDF 4.1 and am super interested in World Brothers but trying to decide whether to get it on Switch for handheld (which I play a LOT more) or on PS4 for better visuals and performance.

Git gud!

@sketchturner I play it exclusively handheld and wouldn't say the visuals are that effected, maybe a little bit of a resolution drop but not a huge or noticeable difference (I have an oled). I've had a few frame drops when a lot goes on but nothing that stops me playing and they are few and far apart. To me it's perfect for handheld pick up and play and it's on sale at the minute.

@Watchman I'm pleased you posted about Star Link. A toy shop in the UK has the starter packs and ships massively discounted for a while so I picked up the game and a few ships for my son and put them away, I'm going to give them to him this Christmas, he's started playing 3D games this year, I think he's really enjoy it.

@sketchturner
And it was actually created by one single person and composed by another. Then Yacht Club jumped on board, published it and tightened it up. I've put in less than 2 hours but it's quality stuff. Feels like it was inspired by Ninja Gaiden III: Ancient Ship of Doom(NES).

Couldn't get on board with Messenger though, i wish it would of played out like a linear action platformer instead. I just don't have the patience for that one.

@NeonPizza Glad to know I'm not the only one who didn't click with The Messenger. I bought it day one and expected to love it but I just didn't. Couldn't force myself to finish it.
Meanwhile I played through Cyber Shadow twice and it's top-notch from start to finish. The final boss is crazy hard but can be mastered and wow does it feel good to beat it.

Git gud!

Sky: Children of the Light, it's the spiritual sequel to thatgamecompany's masterpiece...Journey.

Valkyria Chronicles 4, the best tactical/rpg that not enough people played.

Jamestown+, just a really good shmup; one I'm surprised hasn't been picked for a physical release.

Wasn’t aware of ‘marble it up’ existing and it sounds just like my kind of game will probably check this out thanks @sketchturner

they say that life’s a carousel, spinning fast you’ve got to ride it well. The world is full of kings and queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams. It’s heaven and hell.

What the Golf is a pretty fun little game, full of little golf stupidity. Its not your average golf sim as you have a varity of different balls, from Cars to the Golf Hole itself.
But what I really loved was the First person Golf where you are the ball
