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.
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.
Dragon Age: Inquisition ( PC)
Dragon Age Inquisition isn't perfect -- but pretty close and very easily the best in the series by a wide margin.
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.
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.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor ( PC)
Even if you aren't a fan of the Tolkien universe, Shadow of Mordor is a great-looking and ultra-satisfying action game filled with remarkable villains and countless memorable moments.
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.
