    'More' and 'better' are the key words that perfectly describe Super Mario Galaxy 2. This superb second act doesn't only offer the rock-solid gravity concept we come to know and love, but excels the first game in every way. It is fanservice at its best.

    Editing the GTA formula has been done with love and care. Playing with no less than three main characters works well in every thinkable way, and after finishing the compelling and sharply written story, there’s enough to do in the wide world of Los Santos and environment. GTA 5 simply offers an ambitious, successful experience of a rare quality level.

    The impressive GTA V has extra impact now that it has landed on next gen consoles. The locations in the game have always been eye candy and the visual upgrade offers even more depth. The first person mode is a spectacular addition.

    We have been kept waiting for very long, but GTA 5 for PC really is the best version of the game. It offers the same ingenious story of three characters, plus the online mode with Heists, more music and a very good optimisation. Definitely worth the wait.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves delivers! The singleplayer experience is superb and it looks absolutely fabulous. The characters are very realistic, thanks to the amazing voice acting. And besides that, there are a lot of cool scenes and it has a very fun multiplayer mode. Must have!

    Mass Effect 2 is an awesome RPG set in an amazing universe. The story is compelling, the characters throughout the adventure come to life and every battle you encounter is a treat to play. It’s the adventure of a lifetime!

    LittleBigPlanet is the culmination of every aspect ever associated with the term ‘next-gen’. The game revolves around fun, but also impresses from both an artistic and a technological point of view. The endless possibilities it offers in terms of playing and creating, mixed with the cute Sackboys and ultra-hip overall look, turn LittleBigPlanet into what could very well be a milestone in gaming history.

    Red Dead Redemption perfectly captures the essence of the old West, in a way Rockstar Games does best. Although they didn’t quite nail the Honor/Fame-system and some side missions tend to become tedious after a while, this is the best Western game I ever played and arguably the best game this year.

    The Last of Us offers a bitter and horrifying look at humanity after a ‘zombie apocalypse’. It's an emotional journey that’ll touch you, without a doubt. But it doesn’t only have a strong story: the constant tension, great gameplay scenario’s and atmosphere make for a brilliant combination of elements that I can easily recommend to any gamer.

    The Last of Us Remastered honors its own name. It runs more smoothly, is prettier and has more content. The technical improvements and the Photo Mode make sure that The Last of Us comes into its own even more, while Left Behind on PlayStation 3 already proved that downloadable content can be of value. The small imperfections are still here and it’s unfortunate that the PlayStation 4 isn’t pushed to the limit. Despite all this, Remastered is the best version of an already incredible game.

    BioShock: Infinite is a marvelous masterpiece, a must have, a unique and beautiful game and maybe the best game of recent years. Everything about this game just makes sense. It offers a beautiful world, a good balance between action, exploration and story. And my god, what a story! Do yourself a favor and get this game as soon as you can, because this is a title that will be spoken of for a good while to come.

    With the music of Hans Zimmer and the cinematic scenes, you're sucked into the game and spit out after you’re done. The single player is rather short. It will take you about six hours to beat the game, but you get an intense and memorable ride the entire time. The game seems to be a little scripted, but it isn’t annoying for everyone. The multiplayer isn’t annoying at all. You can play for hundreds of hours without being bored. The Spec Ops mode extends that with fun for two. If you ever played a shooter and liked it, buy this game!

    Right now, Street Fighter IV is pretty much the best fighting game out there. There's a wide array of balanced characters to choose from and more that enough challenges to keep you off the streets for weeks. Whether you're a walking Street Fighter library or a newcomer to the series, this game is recommended for everyone who loves inviting some friends over for some quality time ass-whoopin'.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars is a must-have for every gamer with a Nintendo DS. It’s a game that’ll keep you entertained for hours and every aspect of it fits like a puzzle from beginning to end. It breathes that familiar GTA feeling, yet it also introduces some new and interesting elements. If you don’t have a Nintendo DS yet but are thinking about buying one, let Chinatown Wars give you the last little push you need.

    Super Mario 3D World is filled with dynamic, creative and varied levels that we've gotten used to with the Galaxy-games. The result is a fantastic platformer, that not only plays like a dream, but also is a pleasure to simply observe.

    Persona 4: Golden is amazing. The story is great, combat system endlessly interesting, characters are all well done, there's tons to do and it's received some improvements regarding the original. It's also pretty accessible for a JRPG. It might be fantastic, but it never gets ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and pick this game up.

    Gears of War 2 is one big roller coaster ride full of impressive moments. When the ride ends, there’s still the vast array of multiplayer possibilities to be discovered. The core gameplay of Gears of War remains intact, and some minor bugs I encountered lower the score a little bit, but don’t let that keep you away of this shining masterpiece.

    God of War III ends with a bang. The trilogy end contains pretty much everything that you’ve come to expect from the series with a few surprises along the way. We wish there were a little more titan battles but overall the story of Kratos gets a worthy ending.

    Bloodborne has a lot of similarities with Dark Souls, but it will surprise you as you will need to make changes to survive Yharnam. Without losing depth, this game offers a high gameplay speed. We enjoy the great level design, the subtle story and the city. The only issue we have encountered were frame rate drops and long loading times.

    Super Street Fighter IV brings more, but not enough to justify the game if you already own Street Fighter IV.

    The Witcher 3 is much more sloppy and than expected, and the graphic quality of the Northern Kingdoms is a disappointment. However, the game is still so good that we accept these issues. This fantasy world is great, offers plenty of detail and keeps pulling you back in.

    Forza Motorsport 3 is the racing game of the year and the most advanced racer ever. The game has a numerous kind of depth and stays very accessible. Forza Motorsport 3 is the cutest girl of the classroom, but the collision detection isn’t always that great and a little odd. Still, Forza Motorsport 3 is great in everything is does.

    Batman proves himself in this fantastic game. It is more then a good license game, it is a must have!

    Fire Emblem: Awakening will have you taking your Nintendo 3DS everywhere, so you can take a few more steps while on your way to work for instance. It manages to grab players from start to finish and got me bummed out when having finished it. I'm jealous of those who still have the joy of discovering it because I'm positive that they'll have tons of fun with it. Fire Emblem: Awakening is for the 3DS what Advance Wars was for the GBA: a must-have.

    Tiny Wings 2 is a sequel by the book: the same formula, with a slightly different approach and some new elements.

    At times The Walking Dead feels as poorly built as the average zombie, but at its best moments this comic-based game is a true emotional roller coaster. You get attached to the different characters, which makes the grueling decision you'll have to make that much more impactful.
