Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
Discover the origins of Shulk as he and his companions clash against a seemingly-unstoppable mechanical menace. Wield a future-seeing blade, chain together attacks, and carefully position your party members in strategic, real-time combat as you journey across a massive world.
During an attack from the mechanical invaders known as the Mechon, Shulk discovers that he can tap into the full power of a mysterious blade known as the Monado. With the mighty Monado in hand, Shulk sets out to defeat the Mechon once and for all.
In addition to the Mechon, you’ll run into wildlife that ranges from docile to deadly. Keep an eye on what attracts monsters’ attention to avoid unwanted conflict…or try your hand at bringing down an ultra-powerful Unique Monster.
Upgrade your party as you progress through the adventure by selecting equipment, enhancing weapon skills, and using benefit-granting gems. Put your dependable companions to work by filling the party gauge to trigger a Chain Attack and attack enemies in quick succession!

Very very close to perfect, but slightly bogged down by the optional side story added in the Switch version, which felt tedious and drawn out. Luckily, it is optional, so you can entirely ignore that and play the masterpiece of a game that is the main title. Play it.
Straight up best game ever made.
- Excellent well-paced story with engaging and dynamic characters. Game is definitely worth playing for story alone.
- Large-scale beautiful environments with tons of areas worth exploring
- Combat is super fun and in depth, really tactical but with enough action to keep it engaging. Difficulty is also very well-balanced, never to easy or difficult unless you make it that way
- Switch remaster is an incredible upgrade and fixes every possible flaw with the game with countless quality-of-life fixes
