3. Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Nintendo's long-running tactical RPG franchise adds a dash of Persona in its newest entry.

If you’re a Nintendo fan, then this game probably needs no introduction. A largely tactical role-playing game, Fire Emblem doesn’t hold back when it comes to engaging combat and epic fantasy stories. How you form relationships with the other characters, however, is just as important, as they will impact the overall story. If you’re a returning fan, then this title will be rewarding. But if you’re a newbie, then it’s one of the best ways to enter the long-running fantasy franchise.

The game has short bursts of frightful excitement and head-scratching puzzles, all delivered with the same care and polish that are prevalent in first-party Nintendo games. You may not be saving Hyrule, or carrying a gun to stop a zombie invasion, but it’s all still good and charming fun.
