I'd recommend trying subnautica, i was skeptical about it when i first played it as i thought it was one of those shit survival games, but then it turned to be an actual good exploration game
I’m replaying Subnautica and one thing that’s really striking me is how well paced it is: there’s always a thing to do and what that thing is, changes as you go on. The progress steps are placed just right.

At first it’s a survival game, but you quickly learn how to make food and water and you get oxygen tank upgrades to spend more time productively gathering. Then you make your base building tool and create a place for your stuff. THEN you build a Seamoth and it becomes an exploration game. Then it also becomes a base-building game too. And all this time you’re pushing forward your depth upgrades and discovering new wonders/horrors you’d unwittingly swam over hundreds of times. And you’re always being pushed to go just outside your comfort zone to get the next cool thing. It’s an expertly tuned experience.

If there's one issue i have with it, it's sometimes hard to find stuff you need.

Sony bought Bungie for 3.6 billion.

Bungie is keeping all the rights to Destiny as well as future games, including all the publishing rights.

There won't be any Playstation exclusives.

They're porting Portal and Portal 2 to the Switch.

Man, I don't think I'll ever have an experience quite like Portal. I bought Orange Box because of HL:E1 and didn't know anything about Portal other than it was some tech-demo thing included as an extra. Sat down that night, totally blind ... and just blown away for the next three hours, right through to the song at the end. The gradual discovery that this was more than a demo, this was a real game, and more than a game, it was a fucking masterpiece. It didn't need to be anything more than a demo, but they gave it everything anyway. As you play, it just keeps giving.

There are some cultural moments where once they happen, it's impossible to return or feel what it was like before they happened. Like, we will never not live in a world where Vader is Luke's father and everyone knows this. Even people who don't know Star Wars knows this. It's a dramatic moment and still is, but it will never be a surprise anymore. It's the same with Portal. We'll never be in a world where Portal is new and a pleasant surprise on the Orange Box waiting to be discovered.

Wish they'd make those damn ARG radios on repeat plays optional though.

I have bought and played Tunic this weeked https://store.steampowered.com/app/553420/TUNIC/
It is a Zelda-like and has some Souls-like elements.

I finished the game yesterday. Oh boy it is hard. Thankfully there is a "I don't take any damage" option. I tried it legitimately but at a few parts it was so hard I couldn't stand repeating the section anymore and my thumbs hurt.

I cannot fully recommend the game despite having quite some fun with it. The combat difficulty is one thing but the puzzles are the other. Depending on how much you like obtuse and cryptic puzzles you might like it.
Generally it is best to play it blind, so without any further knowledge than this. It has some kind of cool mystery vibe this way.
I have only looked up some stuff towards the end because I have a life and I don't want to decode all the puzzles and texts by myself for weeks.
