In The Spotlight, we take a look at games that warrant attention for various reasons such as interesting features and/or play mechanisms, greater popularity than some might think, etc. The focus is primarily factual, the goal being to provide substantially more depth than a typical one-paragraph summary in order to help you better assess how well the title fits your individual tastes.
