Board games have a category called Gateway Games. These are light, easy to learn games that introduce new players to mechanics used in heavier games. Immortals: Fenyx Rising is the closest I have seen to a gateway video game, a great introduction to open-world exploration RPGs. This accessibility does have a cost for experienced players though.
I’ve talked about it long enough, and here it is – my review of The Outer Worlds. I don’t go deep into gameplay, but I have a bit to say about the Switch port – mainly I don’t seem to have the same problems others have. I suspect it’s my SD card? I talk about it in the review.
Have a great weekend everyone!
