#38
Hint 1: Lots of heights and climbing.
Hint 2: This franchise went open world last year.

#34
Hint 1: No cartoony graphics.

#33
Hint 1: There's not actually a number in the title.

Did anyone guess 38 yet? Is it Assassin's Creed?

No one gussed it yet, and no, it isn't Assassin's Creed either.

Bonus tip: there isn't that much heights and climbing, it's just a lot more than the previous games in the franchise (at least, that's what Google told me, since it's the only game of the franchise that I played).

A shot in the dark: Darksiders III maybe?

Time to break into the top 30, with a few hints.

31. The latest entry into this series isn't simple and clean, doesn't provide a sanctuary, but instead let me face my fears.

30. The world no longer has any need for a summoner, so what is the last great summoner to do? It's showtime!

29. The main character is a thief, so naturally you begin by stealing...a princess?

28. A game in a long running franchise, that returns to the style of earlier entries and feels like it should carry the slogan,

W E L C O

M E T O T

H E N E X

T L E V E L

31: Kingdom Hearts III

30: Final Fantasy X-2

29: Final Fantasy IX

A fair guess, but I don't believe Perfect Dark was ever supposed to have a male protagonist in early development. So, Perfect Dark is incorrect.

I also have never played it. It's one of those have-to-play classics I never played; like I also never played Final Fantasy VII. At some point I should get those games and play them all.

We've all got those classic games that we really should have played but just haven't. I'm a huge fan of JRPGs, especially Square, but I've never played more than an hour of Chrono Trigger. I also really liked the first Half Life but after getting The Orange Box, I just played Portal and the intro to Half Life 2. Two games, widely regarded as classics, that I'll probably really enjoy. I even own them, but I just never feel like playing them...I'll have to force myself, one day.

Portal, another one of those. I agree, at one point I should just make a list and force myself to play these things.

#32: This game was supposed to have a male protagonist at first, like most other games, but to set it apart and not make it seem too much like the gadget spy-movie franchise this takes it's inspiration from, the protagonist was made a female.

No One Lives Forever?

Yes! No One Lives Forever is correct!



Around the Network

More clues:

30.  a)  This popular series had let you choose your character before, but this is the first time where 4 different people could also play at the same time.
b)  The main character of this game is known for defeating King Kong and Godzilla (or at least creatures that resemble them).

28.  a)  Mode 7 graphics are one thing that originally made this game impress, but the playstyle for this franchise is nothing like this game any more.
b)  The main villain in this game is arguably the greatest villain ever.  Not just in video games, but books, movies, etc...everything.

27.  a)  A similar style PS4 game came out last year, but I still prefer this PS2 game that was based more on a movie.
b)  The actor in the movie also did some voice over work for this PS2 game.

25.  This Switch game is a combination of two different franchises.  It also appeared on other platforms before coming to Switch.

30: Super Mario 3D World

28: Yoshi's Island? No wait! I know which one fits better; Is it Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back?

Nope. It shouldn't be too hard to guess for you though.

Correct



#36: Risk Of Rain

This game has been hovering near my Top 50 for a few years but it made a breakthrough this year thanks to me re-purchasing it on Switch (previously had it on Steam). This is a simple but very well made roguelike where you battle your way through randomized levels against foes who get stronger as time goes by. Achievements, unlocks and artifacts are permanent so as you play you unlock more characters and items that help you reach the end and escape from the planet you've crash landed on. Each character has a different set of abilities which means there's a lot of variety to be found and the random items you find in chests make every run unique. 

One other aspect of this game that I love is the soundtrack! It is amazing and I listen to it regularly on Spotify!
