While January 2024 gave us some bangers, such as Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Tekken 8, and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, it’s time to see what February 2024 has in store for us video game lovers, and it’s quite a bit. There’s plenty to play this month from three anticipated RPGs, the rebirth of a PlayStation/PC shooter, and a classic Nintendo title that has been given a remake. But enough talk, let’s take a look at the top 5 video games you should be playing in February 2024, in no particular order.
Granblue Fantasy: ReLink is a highly anticipated title due to the West finally getting to dig around the world of Granblue Fantasy. These characters are highly loved by those of us who have played Granblue Fantasy: Versus, and it’s a fantastic choice to give us an action RPG to be able to explore the world and its story. The action gameplay is engaging, and link attacks and party setups give us a unique way to replay it. Having so many playable characters in the world is exciting! If you’ve never stepped into the world of Granblue Fantasy, this gem will be your first massive step and one you won’t forget.

This is a remake that Persona fans have long waited for. It was a pivotal game for the series, and to see it brought to the current generation with revamped graphics and gameplay is enough to warrant another trip to the Dark Hour. The theme of Death and Memento Mori is why this game has stuck with fans for so long.

The original Helldivers was an interesting experiment that pitted players against massive giant bugs, similar to the cult classic movie Starship Troopers. With the follow-up, it seems the gameplay hasn’t changed much. However, the visuals have shifted from the top-down isometric view from the original game to the third-person shooter perspective that looks to capitalize off of games such as Destiny and Warframe.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Mario and Donkey Kong are back at it again in a remake of the 2004 puzzle platforming title for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance, Mario vs. Donkey Kong.

For those who missed out on this classic title, now is the perfect time to see why these two are so upset at each other with the remake on the Nintendo Switch.
