Last week I finished playing the Quantic Dream video game Detroit: Become Human, and it was quite a ride. I’ve already written about what an intense game it was, but now I just want to share my personal experience with this game. Which means a spoiler-filled recap of my decisions, and where things went awry — because they totally did.

But what excited me about this year’s E3 is all the new games I’d never heard of — or just didn’t feel all that interested in before. Sure, I’ve learned lots more about Dishonored 2 that I am eager to play… but I’m also suddenly excited for unexpected titles like ReCore, too.
For me, these are the video games that stole the show this year. =)
