Weekly Games Thread #2 Lives Up to the Hype

Happy Thursday, folks! What games are you playing and what do you think of them? As a bonus prompt, tell us about a game that lived up to your high expectations or hype for it.

Please also be sure to join me tomorrow for the return of the Franchise Festival article series with Franchise Festival #101: Paper Mario! There will be a lot of interesting history to cover. Should be live at 9:00 AM EST on 5/28/21.
