Super Mario Odyssey
Runner Up: Super Mario Odyssey
Despite lacking the more open-world nature of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey is anything but a bore to play. In fact, it’s one of the most joyous titles currently on the market, and certainly in contrast to the stoic gray-browns that tend to permeate the action/adventure genre. It’s got challenging platforming, phenomenal level design, and a massive cast of adorable characters. Really, what’s not to love?
