Pillars of Eternity
#pillarsofeternity One of the few and most likely the best game to come from a kickstarter campaign and possibility the only game this year that lives up to player expectations.
8
Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition
#DragonAgeOriginsUE offers an interesting story but the game has major problems, combat being a major issue along with the camera and controls.
5
Expeditions: Conquistador
#ExpeditionsConquistador superb yet obscure turn-based adventure, while it is a short game the excellent writing, setting, characters and choices make it a classic adventure.

Blackguards 2
#Blackguards2 Not as immersive enough compared to its predecessor comes off as average at best pick it up during a sale.

Blackguards
#Blackguards One of the best designed games i've played this year which deserves more recognition it has a few issues but nothing game stopping.
7
Destiny – The Dark Below
#Destiny #TheDarkBelow Not the best expansion but not the worst, if you want more Destiny, this is the only way to go. Feels pricey for the content you get.
6
CounterSpy
#CounterSpy 2D Side scroller with clever 3D Stealth component. Interesting upgrades & power ups, fun to play. Make too many mistakes &the game can get tough to complete
6
Dying Light
#DyingLight Amazingly fun open world Zombie Survival; Does not force you into any route or play-style & is enjoyable because of this

Assassins’ Creed – Unity
#AssassinsCreed #Unity Nextgen shouldn't just be about how it looks, it should be more about how it feels. Unity lets itself down, missing so much of the AC heritage and charm
7
Saints Row : Gat out of Hell
#SaintsRow #GatOutOfHell It's Saints Row. It's back, but this time it's all gone to Hell. Great humour & setting, worth playing if you are a fan, but SRIV is better. The remastered isn't that great
6
Escape Dead Island
#Escape #DeadIsland Has the problem of trying to straddle the arcade style fast paced fun of #Borderlands with the story telling & single player campaign of #TombRaider
5
Sacred 3
#Sacred3 Has an old school #Gauntlet feel to it. Starts with good intentions, but quickly deteriorates into a hack and slash with no loot drops & bad humour
4
Watch Dogs
#WatchDogs Starts off slow. The more unlocks you get, the easier it becomes. Interesting game mechanics. Visuals are good for the console & doesn't stop the game being fun.
8
TitanFall (360)
#TitanFall Wall running Gun & Run Combat & your own Titan. Plays like a dream. Nice & easy to pick up & play. Has the "Just one more go effect". Great fun.
8
Bioshock Infinite – Burial at Sea (DLC)
#BioshockInfinite #BurialatSea It starts off with swimmingly, but after a short time it becomes a shooter again & then it ends #TooShort
5
Batman : Arkham Origins
#BatmanArkhamOrigins Story & character performances are solid & work well. It's unrefined & after #ArkhamCity feels familiar #PrequelIssues
6
Payday 2
#Payday2 With friends & randomers it's brilliant fun. AI can be dodgy at times & visuals aren't stunning. Overall a great COOP shooter
7
GTA V
#GTAV Open world driving, gunplay are amazing. Looks lovely. Uncomfortable at times with some OTT story moments. Music could be better

Diablo 3
#Diablo3 Great menu's & a variety of professions. Fun COOP. Loot collecting is addictive. Gamepad controls work well, but poor RPG & Story
7
Narco Terror – Single Player
#NarcoTerror TwinStick shooter with explosions & guns. Graphics & sound are functional. Poor story, but it's exactly what you'd expect

Space Hulk Ascension
#SpaceHulk #Ascension While there are a few faults & balance issues it's one of the better Space Hulk adaptations (turn based tactic games) out there at the moment

Styx: Master of Shadows
#Styx #MasterofShadows offers a great story, likeable hero & amazing diverse environments. It's a great, challenging stealth game, but offers little replay value.

Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition
#IcewindDale #EnhancedEdition The definitive Icewind Dale experience, more spells, better graphics and less bugs but somehow the gameplay feels a little old & repetitive at times.
8
The Sims 4
#TheSims4 Very fun game. New & improved CAS – simply amazing. Lacking some things from #TheSims3 but overall a great upgrade. A must for any Sims fan
8
Xenonauts
#Xenonauts A modern take on the classic #XCom. Simplistic in design, extremely fun and very easy to play, but could do with some more variety on the mission types.

Alien Isolation
#Alien #Isolation The retro setting is great & the game certainly delivers on the fear factor; however after a short time I felt powerless & overwhelmed. But the iconic monster is back.

GTA V Online
#GTAV #Online gives the game a whole new dimension, get your friends together and enjoy the guaranteed carnage of co-op missions, races and shooting everything that moves.

Never Alone
#NeverAlone Game oozes charm & character, & the immersion is amazing. The controls, AI & some of the puzzles make it a real struggle to play at times
5
GTA V Enhanced Re-release
#GTAV This game was good before, but wait until you see the improved graphics & gameplay. Open environment is great, but is an easy source of distraction. Music selection is poor & the map feels too small.

Sherlock Holmes: Crime & Punishment
#SherlockHolmes #CrimesAndPunishment A well structured game with some enjoyable gameplay but with some noticeable downfalls. A mobile game trapped on a Console

The Last Of Us
#TheLastofus Character development & emotional connections are second to none. Gorgeous Game. Scary, Sad & unforgettable. Never dull.

Journey
#Journey It's more like an interactive experience than a game. It has the best Multiplayer & music ever. Short, but wonderful.

Uncharted 3
#Uncharted3 Great balance of Gameplay, Dialog, Characters & Story; not enough puzzles (never thought I would say that) Well worth it.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
#CallofDuty #AdvancedWarfare The fun & enjoyability of the CoD Single Player game. Intriguing co-op, but some of the new Exo Suit additions seem to break the multiplayer.

Asphalt 8: Airborne
#Asphalt8Airborne Absolutely stunning visuals with an easy to master control system, however the insistent 100% success rate to continue or pay to unlock gets old quick
