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.
The Evil Within ( PC)
Certainly an acquired taste, The Evil Within is sure to satiate the horror fanatic. For those with an appetite for an investment-heavy exploit through the mind of a madman, The Evil Within is more than capable, even with a few bumps along the way.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! ( PC)
It's not the best Borderlands experience out there, but The Pre-Sequel is a solid entry that will satisfy Borderlands diehards most. If you've never played a Borderlands game though, try starting with Borderlands 2.
Wasteland 2 ( PC)
Wasteland 2 is genuine fun, packed with enough lore to make you want to keep exploring and adventuring, well past your bedtime.
The Wolf Among Us ( PC/Mac)
The Wolf Among Us is a stylish noir game with the Big Bad Wolf doing his best Philip Marlowe impression. And if that doesn't sell you on the game, not much else will.
Available on Steam:
Watch Dogs ( PC)
Watch Dogs manages to impress at times, but its overly ambitious promise is never fully realized. There's a lot of fluff baked into the experience that might leave some disappointed and wanting more.
