The Trails of Cold Steel games are already on the list. Leah has played them but she’s the only one from the team as far as we can tell, though Charlotte and I have expressed interest in them.
That's great! Really hope to see it on the list of episodes some day. If it ever comes up for serious consideration though, I would suggest starting with the Sky trilogy first, because it comes first timeline-wise. Also because its graphics and gameplay mechanics are a bit more dated.

The games generally take a while to get going, but it's a joy to see how the plot deepens from game to game. Can't think of any other RPG off the top of my head which has done such extensive worldbuilding across multiple games!

Noted.

Just to manage expectations as usual though, please bear in mind that there are over two thousand games on the list, and we can only make 50 shows per year..!

Everything on that list does get properly considered however.

Two suggestions:

Stick it to the Man
Flipping Death

Same publisher. Both on PS4 and on Steam.

They're very reminiscent of Tim Schaeffer's games in the style of humour.
Sometimes it's quite dry, sometimes it's quite silly. Light puzzles/platforming.

If you haven't checked them out, I recommend them.

Haven’t played the latter game but Stick it to the man is great. Was on ps plus 5 years ago also so probably lurking on a few hard drives.

I guess it's a bit of a too recent release for inclusion in the the podcast any time soon, but have just finished A Plague Tale: Innocence and though it had its flaws really enjoyed it - feels like the kind of thing Victor Hugo would have come up with if he'd worked at Naughty Dog.

(Though mon Dieu - play it with the French audio because the English-language actors were tasked with putting on some questionable French accents which damages an otherwise pretty immersive story)
