What a week with Madden's new features and obsessive details did for my love-hate relationship with my childhood team.
It has all the usual "toys-to-life" bugbears, but Lego Dimensions is packed with great characters, clever puzzles and a physical experience you won't get anywhere else.
FIFA 16 continues its solid track record by improving on an already winning formula and introducing Women's International Teams for the very first time.
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.
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.
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.
FIFA 15 is easily the most realistic soccer game out there, even if it at times feels a bit over-the-top.
Destiny is a victim of the hype machine created around it. It's a refined console shooter that feels great during the action, but goes stale during just about every other component of the game.
Child of Light is a brave move from a mainstream developer, and one that hopefully heralds a new way forward.
Battlefield 4's campaign is an emotional ride packed with an impressive amount of graphical prowess. If you have the right hardware, Battlefield 4 will dazzle you with jaw-dropping detail and production value.
Grand Theft Auto V is an absolute triumph that fires on all cylinders. It's a relevant, witty, and satirical experience that's as smart as it is completely addicting.
NHL 14 is still a fun, ultra-realistic hockey simulation, but veterans of the series may not find enough innovation and refinement to warrant a purchase at full price.
It's far from perfect, but I'm not sure there's another game out there that can cram in the sheer amount of addictive absurdity that Saints Row IV manages to pull off.
The Last of Us is brutally realistic, often shocking, but undeniably fun to play. It's easily one of the year's best games and the strongest console exclusive in a long time.
God of War: Ascension doesn't break any barriers, but it's still a top-of-the-line action game that will most likely please veteran fans of the series.
If you can bypass Crysis 3's lack of an engaging storyline, you'll likely enjoy a lot of what it has to offer.
Sonic's new racing adventure speeds past its predecessor and delivers a kart racer that can keep up with the best in the genre.
PlayStation All-Stars' mix of playful franchise mash-ups and four-player battles fail to mesh with its complex fighting mechanics.
