5. Ratchet & Clank Remastered
rnThis reboot felt like a new game, and despite some weird tie ins to the subpar movie released around the same time, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Lombax and his robotic friend. The platforming is tight, the variety of weapons is incredibly delightful, and the story is downright charming. It’s not a new franchise, or even a particularly well hidden one, but this awesome platformer hit stores in April, it’s definitely worth checking out if you need a break from this first person shooter intense year.
