Polygon Essentials is a collection of persistently updated lists of the best of the best games for each platform, from the hardware’s launch to its end of production. For folks new to a platform, think of this as a starter’s kit. For longterm fans, consider it a list of what to play or watch next. We’ll be updating these lists often, with entries listed in reverse chronological order. To see a collection of other games we recommend that might not have made the Essentials lists, check out Polygon Recommends.
