Tom F, Alex and Graham brawl through dungeons in Curse of the Dead Gods, use vegetables as truncheons in Bloodroots, scavenge for luncheons in Windbound and Valheim, and destroy dry stone walls without compunction in Forza Horizon 4.

  • Stylish and impactful dungeon brawler, Curse of the Dead Gods – but its curse management innovation feels a bit gunky.
  • Top-down one-hit-kill massacre featuring a beardy woodsman, Bloodroots. They should have called it Lumberjerk.
  • Gorgeous island-hopping survival game Windbound. Great mantling.
  • Crafty Viking game du jour: Valheim. Polished and smooth!
  • That “fucking dinosaur game”, is ARK: Survival Evolved.
  • Joyous arcade driving in a greased-up, gorgeously bucolic Britain: Forza Horizon 4.
