Death Stranding is an action-adventure video game that stars Sam Bridges who is tasked with delivering cargo. Set in an open world and one of the first games from director Hideo Kojima and Kojima productions after the disbandment from Konami in 2015 this video game has the graphics, voice acting, and the soundtrack to keep life interesting.

Growing up with the Call of Duty franchise, I was extremely surprised by how realistic the graphics were to this game. This first-person shooter by Activision is the 16th overall installment of the call of duty series.  This reboot is probably one of the better games from the franchise. The realistic scenarios, mature content, and graphics give gamers what they wanted from the previous games. Of course, zombies are not included, unfortunately.

You can never have too many Zelda games! I have to applaud Nintendo for their efforts in remaking this video game but also adding new and improved elements to make it more retro and modern.  If you enjoy the classic, you will also love this game as well. Legend of Zelda: Link’s awakening currently holds the title of one of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games.

Did somebody say Luigi’s Mansion!? As a kid, I used to love playing the first Luigi’s Mansion game on the GameCube. If you enjoy the original then this video game will suck you right in. Luigi’s Mansion 3 has a personality that shines right through and this action-adventure game has some new moves and tricks.
