I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely love using melee weapons in FPS games. Getting up close and personal to strike down your foes just feels so satisfying, especially when the combat system goes beyond just mindlessly spamming the left mouse button.
With Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord coming out very soon (depending on when you’re reading this), I’ve been itching for an alternative to play while waiting for it to be fully released. Enter Conqueror’s Blade, an MMORPG/RTS with instanced battles and scheduled open-world wars.
If you’re a busy bee like me, you probably have a huge backlog of games that you haven’t touched or found the time to finish. Luckily, a lot of indie games on the market are built to be fun, fast-paced romps that you can pick up for an hour or so and still make significant progress, much like old school FPS games, such as Quake, DOOM, and Wolfenstein 3D.
My favorite thing about this genre is the endless replayability. I know it’s not for everyone but I personally love the repetitive nature of roguelite games, especially when you know that you’ll come out a better player in your next attempt (most of the time, anyway).
