In the world of The Sims 4, life is a lighthearted cartoon. You can die of laughter and turn into a ghost.

One minute my five-year-old was giggling along with the playful antics of Yooka-Laylee on the PlayStation 4. The next he was in Persona 5, erasing over 35 hours of Phantom thievery in the blink of an eye. It’s the closest I’ve come to crying over a video game in years.

When Sony says MLB The Show 17 includes a third-person baseball role-playing game, they aren’t exaggerating. I’m not just playing baseball. I’m role-playing a character who’s playing baseball, and he’ll be damned if he’s drafted by the Florida Marlins.
Players have had 26 years to break down Street Fighter II to its most base components, but it turns out there’s still more to discover in the legendary video game.

Mass Effect: Andromeda sprawls and sprawls, eagerly offering you so much to see and do that it nearly loses itself in the process.

There’s a lot of stuff you can do in MLB The Show 17. You can throw balls, swing bats, and up until recently, create unholy baseball abominations like the above.
The warning from the hotel was clear: make more noise and you’re getting shut down. As a result, a group of fighting game fans who gathered in a hotel suite this past weekend to battle each other had to figure out how to have a good time in the most hushed tones possible.

Rivalries drive esports, and there’s few places with better beef than the fighting game community, or FGC.

Early in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I discovered a puzzle shrine containing a small maze. Inside that maze was a little ball.
