June Game of the Month (Runner-up) - Valorant

Counter-Strike may have dominated the electronic sports market for years, but finally there is a new competitor. Valorant is the new title from Riot Games (previously known as League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics) and combines the exact precision required of a game like CS, with the abilities of the heroes you will find in Overwatch. On paper, it looks like a massacre. In fact, Valentine is competing for this year's shooting game. With only four maps and 11 alternate agents at the time of writing, Riot provides consistent updates and budget adjustments to ensure the Valorant experience is as competitive as possible. Many eSports organizations have started investing in the game, so if you are a beginner in this genre and want to train in disorder or are a radioactive class player who does not have a great break, Valorant may be the game for you. Plus, it's free! Ford James

June Game of the Month: Last of Us Part 2

With the dust fix, it's fair to say that The Last of Us 2 has suffered one of the most turbulent releases in PlayStation history, with epidemic-related delays, devastating plot leaks, and some malicious online rhetoric surrounding its launching. Play it yourself, however, you will discover another classic Naughty Dog game, one that can be easily placed among the best PS4 games. Is it impeccable? Of course not, but the steps taken by The Last of Us Part 2 in the worlds of animation, storytelling, and level design are revelation, and go much further than the shortcomings of its rare arrogant plot. It is Naughty Dog's most ambitious adventure yet, and an experience that none of us will soon forget, ensuring confidence in his professional position among GamesRadar's prestigious catalog of five-star titles.

May Game of the Month (Finalist) - Minecraft Dungeons

The treats come in small packages, and while Minecraft Dungeons is very small, with a campaign taking less than eight hours, it's also fun, especially when you enjoy it with others. Simplified Mojang's Dungeon Crawling - RPG Dungeons takes more easily accessible tutorials and skill trees for mechanics that target the younger audience, but it makes up for it satisfactorily and cuts fights that bring some much-needed and buoyant stuff to the old genre. With more content in the form of a new DLC, lots of reset value in the form of secret levels, endless looting, and swiping difficulty, Minecraft Dungeons is easy to recommend, as long as you know what to expect (and most importantly, what not to expect) from your content pack.

May Game of the Month - Maneater

Make every week of the shark weekend with Maneater, a game where you play as an underwater machine angry at revenge. It's one of those games that has simple mechanics: it bites anything and everything on the horizon, and it focuses on making it fun for hours. Developments that enhance sharks with electrical attacks or bone shields provide enough diversity to continue chewing seals on side missions, and apex predators like killer whales offer great challenges and rewards. The story centers on an evil hunter, but the real joy comes from the wildlife and documentary-style narration of Rick and Morty Chris Parnell. Rachel Weber

April Game of the Month (Runner-up) - XCOM: Chimera Squad

The surprising "no sequel" sequel to Firaxis for XCOM 2 is an unexpected departure from the studio's turn-based strategy table that has been mastered over the years, but this light side view still resembles hours and hours of addiction, what satisfies the tactical brain that infinitely satisfies. Swap out consumable avatars of pre-created characters, introduce new ideas like Breach and Interlocking Mechanics, and overall have more fun with future Earth setup, XCOM: Chimera Squad is an easy purchase for any fan of the series, and a whole lot minus one entry point Ideal for beginners. The XCOM mod community has already emotionally created new game modes and experiences for the main game, ensuring a continuous feedback loop of new content that has been encouraged and approved by Firaxis.
