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.
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.
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.

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.
Transistor ( PC, Download)
Wildly imaginative and existing in a masterfully created sci-fi world, Transistor successfully conveys a vision that is adeptly matched by a clever combat system and attack mechanic.
