After a weak January and February, the gaming scene is finally heating up this year with tons of exciting releases this March. Here are all the best games you should be looking forward to this month around!
After 16 years, Valve is dropping a ‘prequel’ to the original Half-Life series. No, maybe it’s not Half-Life 3, but its something. Personally, looking forward to this a lot. VR is even in 2020, a really underwhelmed feature of gaming. And people are definitely feeling the same way. In fact, Valve sold approximately 103,000 Index headsets ( Valve’s own VR Headset), a jump of over 100% over the previous quarter, according to Nielsen’s SuperData. As of right now, VR is more of a novelty, but this game might just be the push that it needs to go mainstream. HLA drops this March 23rd.
Oh, and you can play both Half-Life 1 and 2 for absolutely free before HLA drops.

Speaking of Half-Life, here’s Black Mesa a fan remake of the original Half-Life. Developer Adam Engle told fans it is ‘the most polished version’ of the game. Black Mesa is wonderful at its core. The Xen levels are visually enticing and terrifying at the same time. It’s wondrous thinking that its actually ‘passion project.’ Black Mesa drops on 5th March and you can pick it up for just 19.99$
Ori and the Blind Forest
Ori and the Blind Forest which released in 2015, had an unbelievably visually enticing world. It has by far some of the best visuals, art style, and animations in games that year. How Moon Studios made such a good indie game is wondrous. Now, after more than 4 years in development the second and long-awaited installment of the series, Ori and The Will of The Wisps is finally dropping this March 11th. Moon Studios has built up the entire game from the ground up again and it looks even more gorgeous than the first one. Personally looking forward to this one a lot. Ori and The Will of The Wisps drop on Xbox and PC.
What if Overwatch and Warframe had a child? The answer would be Bleeding Edge. This new melee combat based game from Ninja Theory looks hella fun. It was in Closed Beta for a while, and the reviews were mostly positive. There are tons of heroes to choose from in this colorful third-person game. Bleeding Edge drops on Xbox and PC on March 24th.

The first Sony exclusive in this list, Nioh 2 builds itself on the base of the first one and improves further. I played the Open Beta for quite a while and it looked really promising. Nioh 2 adds more character and weapons customization, a more in-depth combat system, huge exploring and much more. You can indulge yourself in the demon-infested Sengoku era and smash your Dualshock 4 as early as March 13th!
MLB The Show 20
Although I have little to no interest in sports games, especially baseball The graphics and animation look neat and it’s yet another Playstation exclusive. Not really the one for me, but if you’re into it, it might be worth checking out! MLB The Show 20 drops March 13
Persona 5 Royal
Persona has always been one of my favorite JRPGs. This one adds a new semester, character and Personas to original more. All the more fun. It’s surprising how many people are unfamiliar with this series. Basically, you play as a high school student in modern Japan and the real fun starts when you face off supernatural monsters with your powers in dark alleyways. If you’ve never tried one, this just might be your great gate to the Persona series and JRPGs in general.
They say save the best one for the last and here it is. This game is a followup to the reboot of DOOM 2016. It’s fast and brutal. DOOM has succeeded in keeping its promise to its fans. DOOM Eternal is not far from dropping and even the little of the teaser is getting everyone hyped up. Maybe the first most anticipated game to drop this year. Expect a review coming soon. DOOM drops on all platforms this March 20th.
