#50 - Sunset Overdrive - PC

The beauty of SO is in the joy of movement, is inherently fun to move around your character, with the simple and effective parkour across walls, wires, and the like to keep the momentum going, combined with a satisfying gun play is an incredibly fun time, gamey af. The over the top, comedic nature of the story helps a lot to contextualize the gameplay across crazy enough scenarios to take advantage of such fun movement.

RIP, never getting a sequel.

41 - One of the side quests has you learning a dude is in love with his horse and probably much more.

Red Dead Redemption?



Time for more hints:

41) Not a place to be a hero.
Hint 2: Or to rephrase it: this ain't no place for no hero.

40) Already guessed - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

39) Tomatoes are an important plotpoint in this JRPG. For some reason.

38) Not as solid as other games in the franchise, probably since it comes from one of the softer metals

My initial thought was one of the MGS games that doesn't feature Solid Snake, but that's actually most of them...

41) Ratchet & Clank (2016)

I love this franchise, but it really did spend a long time in the woods with bizarre tower defence games, co-op adventures, downloadable minigames and various other little bits of timewasting. Fortunately, seven years after A Crack in Time, Insomniac managed to get around to making another main series game and reminding me why I enjoy this series so much. I never actually played the original (my first was R&C3) so I got to come into this not hugely familiar with the story other than what was revealed by hints in later games. This game has everything you want from R&C - varied planets, fun and exciting weapons and great rapport between the characters. The PS4's hardware just helps it run that little bit more smoothly and look even better than it always did.

Skies of Arcadia Legends (GameCube)

The improved version of the Dreamcast classic. One of only two traditional JRPGs in my entire top 50. This one trumped all of the Final Fantasy, Grandia, Xenogears, Lost Odysseys, etc for a few reasons but more than anything, it was just charming. I loved everything about this game and building the crew of my pirate ship was just awesome.

No guesses for these yet, so here's a second hint for both.

#40

-The immortal main character has no memory of his past life

-The only reason I ever wanted to own a 360

#38

-The 12th game in the series, the 7th game in the sub-series within the series, and the 2nd game in its own story arc within the sub-series

-Overall, there are 4 games part of this particular story arc, the last of which was released in the west just last month

Sounds like a perplexing web of a series.

So, Trails of Cold Steel II?

Correct. And yes it is. The Trails series alone runs nine games long, two of which have yet to be released in the west. The annoying part is that those two games are set between the Trails in the Sky trilogy and the Trails of Cold Steel games, so there's this silly gap in the story of the games that you kinda need to piece together from the later games.
