If you guys like 16 bit RPGs, give Crosscode a try

It's "free" on Xbox if you have Game Pass.  I'm really enjoying it about 5 hours in.  It's open world (2D top down with sprite artwork) and combat is action-based, not turn-based.  It plays like a mix of Zelda and a twin stick shooter (it sounds weird but works).  NPCs give quests, you level up, buy gear and items, there's a skill tree to augment your character, you can gain party members with unique abilities, the story is interesting (you are actually playing a MMORPG in the game so you are controlling an avatar) and the world appears to be gigantic with lots of secrets, dungeons, towns, shops, etc.  It checks all of the boxes for me.

Looks fun!
Thanks for the tip.
Maybe before the year is out I will have time to try it-
Why'd you kick me?
Where's your brain?
