New hints.

24- This country was so strong you had to pick from 1 of 3 houses. Eventually "civil war" happens and you seize control like a certain famous general.

23- You have to run away from this gigantic fire giant, but eventually you will have to face him. Luckily you get enough time zapping people to get strong enough and then you have to make a choice in the end.

22- In this game even walking levels you up. Jumping too. You can choose from many weapons and magics to do whatever you want in this world.

First you had Medival Total War and now;

24: Rome Total War

Correct of course!

22 sounds like an Elder Scrolls game, most of which I haven't played.  Skyrim?

Right franchise, wrong game. Skyrim doesn't give levels for walking or jumping, and the weapon choice is more lacking.

#22

a) This is the first entry in a series, where you command a group of units through various missions.

b) Steal… *ahem* research the technology from defeated enemies.

c) Missions are turn-based, but outside the mission you manage your bases, troops, equipment and funds in real-time.

#21 Guessed by Darashiva: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

#20 (kinda) Guessed by The_Liquid_Laser: Fire Emblem Awakening

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

#27 Super Metroid 

Still the third best game in it's own genre to date, Super Metroid is a classic that has truly stood the test of time. The pixel art is highly detailed without trying to push the hardware of the SNES too hard. The result is something that looked awesome back then, and still looks good today. "Better looking" SNES games like Donkey Kong Country, or Starfox have not held up well. Super Metroid has a better run n' gun feeling to it than the Prime series thanks to it being a 2D game. This makes the boss battles a lot more fun than the Prime series. The story is simple but comes with a surprise twist at the end. I think it's an even better ending than finding out Samus was a girl in the first Metroid game. 


#26 Neir Automata 

Yoko Taro, and Keiichi Okabe, teamed up with Platinum games to create this masterpiece. Previous Neir games were great with the story, and sound, (thanks to Yoko's writing, and Keiichi's music) but sucked with the actual gameplay. Bringing Platinum on fixed this with Automata. The game is just as good of a hack n' slash as any of Platinum's other games, but it also includes heavy RPG elements thanks to Square's input. This game's story is about human made Androids, and Alien built machines engaging in a proxy war for earth. Not all of the Machines want to fight, and not all of the Androids have been told the truth about the mission to take back earth for humanity. The game's story is excellent for two reasons. First, it explores a ton of philosophical ideas like whether or not machines can be truly sentient. Second, the game can be replayed with different characters for different endings. In fact, the game demands that you uncover every ending in order to get the true and final ending in the game. This means not only beating the game with every character, but beating the game with the same characters in multiple ways. The game shatters the 4th wall by asking you to do the unthinkable in order to leave a lasting mark on somebody else's save file. The music in this game is flat out the best I've heard in a videogame! Just give the above a listen!
