WHAT THE GOLF?
Look, I am sure the big AAA shooters coming out this week are excellent and amazing but being AAA doesn’t automatically get you to this coveted spot. I’ve been playing WHAT THE GOLF? on Apple Arcade and let me tell you I’ve not laughed this hard at a game in a long time. The “just one more level” nature of the game means you are going to have so much trouble putting this one down, trust me on that one.
