As a pet lover, I can say that Stray is one of the best games of the year. In Stray, you get to play the role of a stray cat where you can roam around both above and under the ground. You get to go around as a cat trying to solve different pawzzles. However, something you wouldn’t expect is that you can die in the game (but you do respawn). But what breaks my heart is the cats’ heartbreaking meow if you fall to your death. One of the highlights of this game is its visuals, atmosphere, and its open-world elements that bring the game to life.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human
