In case you are wondering what my favorite video games of all time are, here is my exhaustive list, along with how I got there.
I don’t want to waste your time, so here is my quick, spoiler-free review of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist.
After about 8-10 sessions with a group of four players, we wrapped our Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign. For the purposes of providing DMs new to the campaign with some lessons learned as well as some new ideas, here is my lists of things that went well, things that need improvement, and my favorite player moments. I hope it gives you inspiration!
Overall, I think Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is an excellent book to have simply for the ideas it presents, but this starter adventure itself is only good if you significantly adjust it, requiring a veteran DM to run it.
If you have the time to dedicate to it, I recommend Strahd to medium and high level DMs. It is a campaign that can be run as written but is flexible enough to adlib and make it your own.
WARNING: This episode of the Spoiler Cast contains mentions of sexual assault from the 24 minute mark to the 27 minute mark.
Edited 3/30/2022: I updated the list to include Half-Life: Alyx, which I more recently completed, compared to the other games on the list.
It is hard to believe that this Spoiler Media platform has been operating in some capacity for two console generations now, but here we are! I am so excited to share my picks for greatest games of the PS4, Xbox One, and Switch/WiiU generation. While this generation brought about many wonderful experiences (outlined below), it is perhaps best defined by what is NOT on my list.
High profile sequels from both of Naughty Dog’s latest acclaimed series? The next release from the acclaimed creator of Metal Gear Solid? A long awaited, open world, cyberpunk adventure? They were all hotly anticipated and overhyped, and all not here.
