The Pikmin series does something great. It combines puzzle solving with real time strategy and all in a cute design, while the gameplay itself is still challenging.

The first game released on the Gamecube and was rereleased on Wii with adaptations in the controls to the Wiimote (called New Play Control). The game features captain Olimar, who crashlands on a planet that looks incredibly like earth. His life support only keeps him alive for 30 days and after the crash he is missing parts of the spaceship. So he is out looking for the missing parts. And finds little creatures he plucks from the earth like a vegetable, but they have feet and follow him and follow his orders. He calls them Pikmin.

The Pikmin help him to find the missing parts of the ship that are often hid behind some sort of puzzle or a boss-fight. But he has also to look out for the Pikmin themself, if we gather food more Pikmin are produced which helps later on. Many creatures are eating Pikmin, so you have to fight them.

The graphic style look great as a replication of nature with Olimar and the Pikmin running around in this scenario. And did I mention everyone is about 2 centimeters big? Well, they are.

The game has two sequels now and a spin-off (Hey Pikmin!). This was a good start for a great franchise. I hope another entry is coming soon.

#30: In the early days of this franchise, it seemed like every game was some sort of a 'subgame' of the famous 'main game'. Every game is still a full blown game though, and mine in particular focussed on one single building.

More clues:

25.  a)  This Switch game is a combination of two different franchises.  It also appeared on other platforms before coming to Switch.
b)  This game is not published by Nintendo, nor is Nintendo licensing out their IP to another company.

Dragon Quest Builders? I know it's not an official franchise crossover, but it's Dragon Quest and Minecraft basically.



More hints:

31. Kingdom Hearts III

First Played: 2019

Times Completed: 1 Time

The latest KH game is one of the best. It’s certainly the best looking, with visuals that do justice to the Pixar and Disney CG worlds it takes many of its worlds from. There is a lot to do and I enjoy almost everything, except the cooking mini games, but everything else is fun, even the Game & Watch style mini games. Music is unsurprisingly excellent, although it features my least favourite title song in the series so far. The only reason it isn’t quite my favourite KH game, is probably just how new it is. Once I’ve spent more time and replayed it, it might just end up my favourite.

Good guess, but no.

That's right!



I must say that I'm very impressed by the variety of different games people people play and like. I mostly play and like games from a quite small set of genres or developers.

This is a really fun thread to read. Thanks to everyone who contribute.



Seems the crazy activity that lead to my games guessed practically the moment I posted the hints has slowed down a bit. So some more hints for the current batch of games:
