    The quality of GTA V puts to shame 99% of triple A productions. The story is beautiful, the graphics are unbelievable for the old hardware they run on, and most importantly the gameplay is fun and smooth. GTA V is not afraid to show it is a videogame, and has the guts to trade some of its realism for the sake of fun.

    The best version of one of the best games of the past generation. With lots of added details, new content, updated graphics and an interesting (albeit not perfect) first-person view, this is hands down the GTA V we'll give to the history books.

    Threes! is not only a brilliant game, but an instant classic too. It's simple to learn but hard to master, it's graced by a gorgeous style and it's absolutely charming. Nothing can improve a game that is nothing more nor less than perfect.

    An enormous fighting game and a celebration of the Nintendo universe. Technically amazing, extremely imaginative and a step or two over the limit: again, a Nintendo game deserving a standing ovation.

    When scaled down to the core mechanics of the game, Bioshock Infinite is a somewhat predictable (even if largely enjoyable) game. But its preciousness lays elsewhere, within the cloudy streets of Columbia, inside the mechanical heart of the Songbird, beyond those sad blue eyes that Elizabeth always keeps wide open. A testament to what Irrational Games and the videogame industry as a whole can achieve.

    Ni No Kuni is the old classic Japanese kolossal updated to our days. If the industry turned its back to the Japanese RPG genre as a whole and the relevance of Japanese games seems to fade away more and more each day... then the work of Level 5 and Studio Ghibli is to be considered a touching love letter to the land of the rising sun and its videogames culture.

    Joe Danger Touch is not just a pocket Joe Danger, but the bright, fun, challenging and very rewarding third installment of the series signed by Hello Games, with a new control system that works properly, even when it comes to jumping the shark with the iPad.

    Luigi's back, in his best game yet. Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon is a joyful adventure, remarkably polished, easy to fall in love with and full of stuff to discover and to play with.

    Shadow of Mordor is not just a great action adventure game, with a smooth combat system and a lot of things to do and discover, but a real taste of what the new generation of consoles can do. Mordor is a (beautiful) and vivid place that has its own life (tanks to Nemesis System) and in which Talion is just a variable, and not the ruler. That position is already taken by the Lord of the Rings.
