What a week with Madden's new features and obsessive details did for my love-hate relationship with my childhood team.
The latest entry in the Call of Duty series is all about cybernetic soldiers, increased mobility, and zombies.
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.
Lego Jurassic World freshens up the formula. You can insert your own bone-related pun here.
Battlefield Hardline takes the fight to the streets, but does this new episodically framed first-person shooter take the series in a welcome direction?
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.
Dragon Age Inquisition isn't perfect -- but pretty close and very easily the best in the series by a wide margin.
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.
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.
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.
With just the right amount of brutality and craziness, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a genuine good-old Nazi-killing time.
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.
Beyond: Two Souls undoubtedly deserves credit for its great story and unique take on interactive software, even if it conflicts with what many believe constitutes a video game.
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.
