Not only is A Link Between Worlds a worthy sequel to the 1992 game, A Link to the Past, but it's also likely the 3DS' best game yet.

Dropping anchor at number 6 is Assassin's Creed IV. While recent entries in the series have fallen a bit flat, AC4 totally delivers on every level, making it our pick as the most fun Assassin's game in the series.

Expectations might have been a little low for this one, but you can't argue with 3D World's incredible level design and sheer entertainment value. What the Super Mario Galaxy series did for the Wii, 3D World looks like it might be able to match on Wii U.

Sure, the original BioShock might be the better game overall, but Infinite's ambitious gameplay, otherworldly setting, and mind-bending storyline make it one of 2013's most compelling experiences. Just make sure no one's spoiled the ending for you yet if you haven't played it!

Of course this shouldn't be much of a surprise to anyone; GTA V killed it on every single level, creating the fully realized and interactive city of Los Santos that was absolutely brimming with personality and charisma. The game's roller-coaster narrative featured fantastic and believable performances from an incredible cast that rendered some of the most memorable characters in recent years. GTA V successfully created an immersive experience unlike anything I've ever played and it should be enjoyed by gamers of all kinds, of course as long as they're old enough.
