    If the combination of a photo realistic world showered in clay isn't enough to persuade you to take a leap of mental faith, The Witness offers so much more than gorgeous visuals.

    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is beautiful and terrifying at the same time.

    Metal Gear Solid V is the best playing game in the series by a long shot. You choose where and how to do missions, and if sneaking isn't your thing that's fine too. The base-building is a good addition, and ties into the story and world superbly. The story is a slow burn, but goes out with a bang.
