There’s no shortage of things to do in Steep, but there’s also no need to do something you don’t want to. There’s a casual approach that Steep takes, in that you can do anything at any time. It is a relaxing take on the genre. Steep is highly enjoyable whether barreling down a slope dodging trees, just as it is to be para gliding against a craggy mountain-side. Steep is an open-world exploration and competition game full of chill music, crisp air, and cool tricks.

But what I do know, is that Rex has played a healthy amount of games this year, and distilling those games to get these results onto this list couldn’t have been easy.
