Everyone loves a remake, but this game is more of an upgrade than a remake – Final Fantasy 7 Remake..
Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Moving on to The Last of Us 2, or is it the last of us?
The Last of Us 2
After numerous set-backs much like real life, a pandemic and other world-altering events, the Last of Us 2 will finally be released on PS4 and then on PS5.
Naughty Dog has done it again and has created one of the best games for PS4. From the animation to the storyline, this game grips you and takes you along a heart-wrenching, exhilarating story. Seven years on from the first game, this re-make packs a punch with quality entertainment and adventure that will leave you lost for words.
What about a strategy game? Try Stellaris
Seriously! This game will have you staring at the screen for hours as you fight off mutant uprisings, make discoveries that will make you and those around question their very existence and of course there are robots.
This game is all about the choices you make, and you can create and manipulate the gameplay to suit. Create your civilisation, choose between an army, a robotic workforce or even some intelligent lizards that would give anyone a run for their money.
Farm and fight with your team of fighting farmers and create whatever species you desire. The game is not only about your civilisation but also about discovery and exploration. Explore the galaxy one wormhole at a time and get to grips with the intricate routes through interstellar travel and the good news is it’s multiplayer so you can interact with fellow alien friends online.
If you love vampires – tell me who doesn’t? If you love vampires as much as we do you’ll love The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2
Vampire – The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2
It’s about vampires, hooray! This imaginative game involves characters who will throw you into the grubby underbelly of Seattle where all the other vampires live, but luckily for you in this game, you’re a vampire, and you’re looking for blood.
The Masquerade, Bloodlines 2 is a classic roleplaying game, filled with lots of player choices, a strong storyline, creating an adrenaline-filled experience to the end. We give it five stars for gore and more stars for the imagery.
So with 2020 going the way that it did, the gaming industry looking forward to 2021 is thriving and expanding, allowing new creations to move forward faster and iconic older games to make a comeback. It’s a win, win however you look at it.
