This was a tough one for me. I've played three games on that list: Super Smash Bros. UltimateResident Evil 2, and Control. Of those, I picked Control. I think it may be Remedy's best work. It has just about everything I would hope for in a great game: superb and unique gameplay, a compelling story, impressive art direction, great sound, and excellent performances from all the actors in the game. Plus, it's an original IP, and I think that counts for something in this day and age.

 

Also, do the other games on that list have this?

I’ve only played Smash Brothers. 😀

 

I only played RE2 and Death Stranding. I still feel confident I'd pick RE2, but Control is the one that could change that for me had I played through it. I plan to fix that soon.

I had some issues with Control, and RE2, but I feel RE2 is the superior game experience. Much as I love the atmosphere in Control.

I'll abstain since I've only played one of the games (and only own a Switch now anyway). There's a good chunk that's brought me immense pleasure on Switch in the last few months though, from Untitled Goose Game to Luigi's Mansion and Pokemon.

I was all set to make "The Outer Worlds" my GOTY.

 

I've never been a huge MGS/Kojima fan, so I was not really interested in even playing "Death Stranding" when it came out, and hadn't even really followed it, so I knew next to nothing about it other than Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelson, and Guillermo Del Toro were in it, and there was a weird-ass baby.  But, I happened upon a Digital Deluxe edition for about $40 over at CAG, so I figured "what the hell."

 

Man, I have been just sucked into this game, completely.  I'm only now at Chapter 6 so I have a ways to go, but hours just melt away when I'm playing.  It doesn't make a lick of sense to me, but I don't even care.  The visuals and the gameplay loop have me totally engaged.  I expect I'll be lost in this one for quite a bit longer...

RE2 was close but Control wins on the gameplay/exploration front. It’s just a super refreshing experience and I agree with Jeff that it’s probably Remedy’s best work.

 

The only games I didn’t spend a ton of time with there is Death Stranding and Outer Worlds. Both are on the to do list.
