Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn brings back lots of the same feelings I had when I played GTA3 for the first time on my PS2 back in 2001: freedom to interact with the environment, stunning vistas, tantalizing secrets that lure you into exploring. If you lived through that golden time in gaming, I'm not sure I need to say much more to encourage you to go try the game out.

Talos Principle is Cryptic Fun

I really can't think of anything I don't like about The Talos Principle. It manages to make me feel entertained in many of the same ways that I felt entertained by Portal and Portal 2, but without feeling like a copycat in any way whatsoever.
Shamelessly stolen from the Steam store.
I don't think you can really spoil the game by telling much about it, but I'd recommend you just jump in. Know that it is puzzle-driven and kid-friendly, even if the subjects covered will likely go over the heads of many. Wholeheartedly recommended!

I played this on the PS4, but I imagine it's great on other platforms.
