Released by Remedy Entertainment, Control is a game that you won’t want to miss if you are interested in supernatural shooters shrouded in a government conspiracy.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is the third installment in the Metro game trilogy, released by Deep Silver and developed by 4A Games. Following the events of Metro 2044 and Metro: Last Light, Metro Exodus is a first-personal survival horror shooter with stealth elements. Players step into a post-apocalyptical Russian Federal where they must fish against mutated creatures that roam the land.

Resident Evil 7

When you step into the world of Resident Evil, you know nothing good is to come of it. This 2017 survival horror game from Capcom puts you in control of Ethan Winters, a man searching for his lost wife. You must move through an old plantation that an infected family inhabits while fighting enemies and solving puzzles. Resident Evil 7 is a welcomed game in the franchise as it abandons the more action-heavy focus of previous games, placing a stronger focus on horror and exploration. Resident Evil 7 isn’t for the faint of heart, but if you’re in for a scare, stream this title on Luna.

Players take control of Amicia de Rune, a young girl of noble descent in Aquitaine. The game is set during the Hundred Years War, and players navigate this action-adventure horror gaming using stealth to survive.

Best Legend of Zelda boss fights
Ganondorf screams in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

One of the core pillars that the Legend of Zelda franchise is known for is its impressive boss battles. Every entry shakes things up with a new cast of powerful and unique bosses to take down at the end of a dungeon. While there are a few that have shown up across multiple entries -- we're looking at you Ganon -- even when they're repeated, fighting them is never the same experience.

The best bosses are ones that test the player to think critically, almost like solving a puzzle, offer a new way to play, are massive spectacles, or all three at once. With dozens of fantastic bosses across all of Link's adventures, narrowing down the best ones was a tough fight on its own, but we've survived and can now present our list of the best Legend of Zelda bosses of all time.

The best Xbox Series X games for 2023
Two Spartans side by side in Halo Infinite.

After an uneven console cycle with the Xbox One, Microsoft's latest consoles are aimed at getting the ship back on course. The Xbox Series X is a next-generation powerhouse that rivals gaming PCs, while the Xbox Series S is an affordable stopgap for those who are curious about trying new games.

There's no shortage of games to play on either console thanks to Xbox Game Pass, which gives players immediate access to a library of titles old and new. That built-in catalog is an extra value on top of all the new games available on the system that take advantage of its impressive technical specs. When it comes to first-party exclusives, the Series X is still growing. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 gave a good boost to the console's library following a somewhat sparse first year. More games are also on the way. Microsoft's Bethesda acquisition will bring exclusives like Starfield and the potential addition of all Activision Blizzard games would further bolster that list, but the console's real strength lies in third-party support.
