#39: Metroid Dread - Switch

Third and last new entry of the year. I was over the moon when I learned we were getting a brand new 2D Metroid title after such a long time. It was even more satisfying to get to play a version of Samus that felt so agile and badass. Metroid Dread plays flawlessly and brings a brand new planet to explore (

and of course ultimately blow up

). The returning abilities are well implemented, the new ones are tons of fun (how did we live without flash shift before?), the bosses are challenging but fair and Samus has never looked more badass. The game features top notch animations and looks gorgeous too!

Signature goes here!
