So, let's get this out of the way. A Hat in Time is a wonderful, charming game, and comparing it to Super Mario Odyssey isn't really fair. But since both games are 3D platformers using a hat as the central mechanic, comparisons are inevitable.
I was talking to Jordan about A Hat in Time and admitted I spent the first hour or so reflexively trying to throw my hat at stuff. Once I got past my own hang-ups though, I discovered a delightful platform game that deserves your attention.
