Fallout 4 ( PC)
Fallout 4 is one of the year's best games -- an amazing post-apocalyptic world to explore and experience.
Nevermind ( PC)
Nevermind is a unique horror experience that steps outside the normal jump-scares to deliver something tense and personal. Although it's short, it's intense, especially if you make use of the biofeedback.
Available on Steam:
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate ( PC)
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is a captivating adventure game that rebounds happily from the disappointment that was last year's Unity. Syndicate makes great use of its setting, doesn't overwhelm the player with mindlessness and stands on its own as a great open world game, even if its core is slowly growing tired.
Mad Max ( PC)
Mad Max has a fair amount of issues that are guaranteed to frustrate, but there's a handful of delectable chaos inside that's worth being exposed to -- just maybe not at full price.
Magic Duels ( PC)
Magic Duels' tutorial mode is among the best ways to learn to play Magic, but interface problems and poor cross-device support mean the average player should look elsewhere for their fix.
Batman: Arkham Knight ( PC)
If you're a fan of the other Arkham games, you're going to really enjoy Arkham Knight, even if there's a handful of stuff you've seen before. The Batmobile and a number of new ideas and mechanics freshen the overall experience and the game's powerful brand of storytelling provides a satisfying connection between the in-game action.
Dying Light ( PC)
There's fun to be had with Dying Light, but it's not going to breathe new life into a genre that's essentially on life support.
Evolve ( PC)
Evolve is a welcome evolution from the Turtle Rock Studios team and a refreshing kind of title that you likely haven't experienced before, introducing excellent four-versus-one action that can be enjoyed on- or offline.
Far Cry 4 ( PC)
Far Cry 4 borrows a lot from the last game, but it adds enough excitement, fresh ideas and a brilliant new landscape to warrant the return trip.
Assassin's Creed: Unity ( PC)
While it will likely suffice for Assassin's Creed core fans, Unity stumbles throughout and never really finds its footing. Where last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag saw the franchise reach new heights, Unity is somewhat of a sidestep that only shines sporadically.
