Last game that pleasantly surprised you? (Or not)

What game have  you played recently that really exceeded your expectations? Or even a game that was well below par?

I'm thinking of console games mostly.

 

For me it's defo Assassins Creed Origins, complete overhaul compared to previous games. Spent many hours lost in that game, often admiring it for looks and its bounty of quests to do/level up. Loved it

Firewatch.

 

Loved it but all too short and no replayability.

Haven't actually played it yet but I know I should

Prey, absolutely underrated and overlooked gem, was essentially game of the year for me. They are bringing a survival esque DLC out for it and a multiplayer mimic/prop hunt type game mode as well.

Sadly enough Euro Truck Simulator 2. Got it years ago and never touched it until recently. Ended up liking it so much I bought all the map expansions and a Logitech G29 with the whole H shifter, pedals setup. Never thought lugging a trailer across Europe could be so satisfying but there you have it.

Assassin's Creedy Odyssey.  I have been of a fan of these games (on PC) for years.  The level of detail and graphics in Odyssey is amazing, and it has a great storyline and numerous quests.

the wife bought me the new Call Of Duty at Xmas, I don't play videogames much, but the new Battle Royale mode is both awesome😁 & infuriating😠 in equal measures, & that bastard shrinking ring stops me from camping lol.

I'm deployed atm so no online gaming, but I managed to bring my laptop and cludge-bodge together a table so I'm working through a ton of old stuff (6-10 years) that I got for pennies in steam sales over the years but never got around to back home.  Most pleasant surprise by far has been Timeshift, super solid FPS gameplay, cool mechanics and enemies, nice little RPG elements for a linear FPS and a story that you feel should be cliche yet actually just seems to work really well.  Also Fallout 3 quality presentation of lore and backstory in the world, really good.

I like horrors. I’m playing Dead Space. There are enough screamers in the game, they represent an unexpected jumping out of the closet of a monster, a monster running at you (from the back, for example). It becomes especially scary when a horde of necromorphs runs at you, and you run out of ammo for the cutter, and there are no other weapons either ... It is very good that the game is from a third person, that is, when someone runs to you from behind, you can notice him and expect his attack or something else. I was glad that the game has a wide variety of weapons. In addition to the cutter, you will be given something like a machine gun, rifle, shotgun and bazooka, only in a space style.
