When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

9. 'The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom' (Switch)

In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that!

Chris "Atom" DeAngelus: Honestly, this is almost a game you don't need to discuss. The direct sequel to Breath of the Wild, Tears of the Kingdom returns players to the postapocalyptic Hyrule. No sooner is Ganon defeated than a mysterious presence beneath Hyrule Castle awakens, sending the castle and chunks of the land high into the air. It's up to Link, aided by a new magic arm that unlocks cool new powers like melting through floors, to save the day once again. Most people were just sold by the phrase, "Breath of the Wild sequel."

Cody Medellin: We've said so much about this since the initial teaser, so we might not have anything else to say to convey how much we're looking forward to this title. At this rate, the question isn't if it'll be good but if the Switch can handle the game with steady performance. Here's hoping that this shows just how much life there still is left in Nintendo's highly successful portable machine and not a Trojan horse for a potential console successor, like past Zelda games have been.

Andreas Salmen: TotK is only a couple of months away, but we don't really know too much about it. It bears the same burden as Majora's Mask, following the probably best game in the series to date. I still truly don't know what to expect, but I hope it's as experimental as its predecessor or, dare I say, Majora's Mask itself. The first glimpses did make it seem like a wild mix of new gameplay moments, but it equally makes me wonder just how well this will perform on the aging handheld.
