Here’s why “Hollow Knight” is worth your time and money: First, availability: You can buy this game on the Nintendo Switch, which I highly recommend since you can play the game both … [Read more...] about ‘Hollow Knight’ is the best video game I’ve played in years — and it’s a total steal right now at just $10

So if you’re feeling physically and/or mentally exhausted from the summer, and you want something to lose yourself in Eminem-style, check out these 7 “big” immersive video games where it’s truly easy to lose track of time: 1. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” source CD Projekt Red I’ll admit: At first, I found “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” to be too big and too ambitious for the time I had available to play video games.

Here it is, New Year’s Eve, and I have exhausted all of my other list opportunities. Now it’s time to consider the best games of the decade. I procrastinated on this one because it wasn’t easy to do.

So here’s my favorite games of the past 10 years and my reasons for liking them so much. Please leave your own comments if you agree or disagree, and pick your favorite game in the poll at the end.
