The Switch is such a familiar part of the gaming landscape now that it's strange to consider that Nintendo's hybrid device is about to head into its first holiday season. What's even stranger is that for Baby's First Christmas, Nintendo's lineup is overloaded with deep single-player fantasy adventures: Role-playing games Skyrim and Xenoblade Chronicles, and the RPG-tinged action of Fire Emblem Warriors.
In 2012, Brazil's Behold Studios released Knights of Pen and Paper, a video game that captured the experience of a bunch of players sitting around a table playing a fantasy role-playing game. Galaxy of Pen and Paper, available today on PC, iOS and Android, does the same thing, only better, and in space.
By the time it was Final Fantasy 7's turn on the Summer Games Done Quick schedule, the trio of runners were already tired. A mixture of nerves and anxious excitement had kept them from getting a full night's sleep, and starting at 1:00AM, they were about to steer the graveyard shift through eight solid hours of Final Fantasy.

It's a lot to fathom, and even more to set up. How will you find D&D-curious friends? How will you decipher the ruleset? What are the best D&D snacks?
Mass Effect: Andromeda sprawls and sprawls, eagerly offering you so much to see and do, that it nearly loses itself in the process. In this massive and uncertain voyage into an alien galaxy, the best way to center yourself is to hold on to other people, and trust that the mission will accomplish at least some of its ambitious goals.
In Kingsway, Andrew Morrish's upcoming PC role-playing game, monsters are pop-ups, quests are emails and your backpack is a cluttered file folder. That's right, it's an OSRPG.
Hylics is surreal RPG created by Mason Lindroth. Following everyday schlub Wayne on his quest to defeat Gibby, King of the Moon, it is a game that thrives on confusion. Bloody skull will instantly kill you, some of the best armour is literal garbage, and randomised text adds to the confusion. It's this week's Indie Pick.
