Games that can give your brain a workout are always worth a look, and few games do that better than Scribblenauts.

World Of Final Fantasy
World Of Final Fantasy is like a greatest hits package of elements from all across the RPG series. The main characters are all new, but the heroes they meet along the way and the enemies they face are all pulled straight from the previous Final Fantasy games. It makes this a charming love letter to the series.
Dreams Come True
LittleBigPlanet was all about letting players et creative and developer Media Molecule’s latest release takes that to the next level.

Warcraft’s Heroes Live On
There is no stopping Hearthstone as the biggest digital card game in the world and the expansions keep on coming. The game’s simple rules and small decks make it easy to pick up and play. The short battles are perfect for the mobile format. Grab some cards, build a deck, and show the world your skills.
Not All Heroes Wear Capes
The gloomy style and creepy crawlies might be a little bit scary, but Hollow Knight is an amazing and spooky adventure all the same. It is like a darker version of Ori. You can explore some awesome underground complexes and battle big bugs while upgrading your abilities to tunnel even deeper into the mysterious caverns below the ground.

New Kid on the Block
Arriving out of nowhere to threaten Fortnite’s gaming dominance, Apex Legends is a brilliant free-to-play battle royale shooter set it in the Titanfall universe.

Monster Hunter: World
Boss battles are a highlight of most video games, so a game that is based purely on fighting massive monsters must be great, right? Right. Monster Hunter: World simplifies the series’ usually tricky mechanics to let anyone get in on the awesome action, and expansion Iceborne adds even more giant creatures to team up against.
