    99 percent of videogames are built on video game conventions we all know well. Everybody's Gone To The Rapture steps outside of the bubble and not only shows that that is possible, but also does it in an excellent way. This title offers gameplay elements that are truly worth exploring. It is more than just unique, it is brilliant and personal.

    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.

    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.

    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 IV delivers on the PC, as it did on the next-gen consoles. The game breathes quality from start to finish. The story remains interesting and entertaining, visually it’s a new milestone in the series, and the gameplay just as good as it was on the console. The added video-editor and extended multiplayer-modes make for an even more complete experience, which no PC-gamer should be allowed to miss.

    Two and a half hours Left Behind has you laughing, get scared, angry and possibly even cry. The story is touching and the ruthless world of The Last of Us comes through even better than in the original game, due to little nuances in the gameplay. Left Behind is the highest quality of DLC.

    The great graphics, the very smart AI, the mind-blowing physics and the multiplayer mode you can play for months combined make Killzone 2 a true FPS-classic.

    Blizzard's first shooter is as accessible as it is competitive, which is an excellent combination. It does not matter what type of gamer you are, you will love Overwatch, too. The Heroes are extremely cool, their abilities are versatile and playing in teams is amazing.

    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.

    After years of carefully sculpting and expanding, EA finally managed to take the last hurdles. The goalie and the referee are near perfection and the AI has been much improved. This results in an incredibly realistic and dynamic game. Sometimes the pace is a little bit too fast, but with all the improvements that's easy to forgive. We get why Messi is on the cover this year; only the world's best footballer of the world's best team is worthy of the world's best football game.

    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!

    Demon's Souls is an amazingly deep RPG which every true gamer will fall in love with. The high addiction factor will make you put hour after hour into this unique adventure. But especially the mysterious atmosphere, crazy challenging gameplay and grand bosses make this game an experience for which you'll sell your soul to the devil.

    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.

    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.

    Fez
    Fez belongs in everyone’s collections. It’s one of the most stylish games of recent years and doesn’t lose its grip of you after your first step in the world. Playing with the 3D block world is still surprising and entertaining, even though the game is two years old by now.

    Heavy Rain is a bit Saw, a sniff of Se7en, a big dose of Fahrenheit and a lot of Heavy Rain. The game is unique and can be called a milestone!

    '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.

    Storywise we are not loving Metal Gear Solid 5, but we tend to forget about it when we play through tens of hours of challenging gameplay. This legend ends with a bang; Snake has never had so much freedom in such an immense world that keeps on surprising.

    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.

    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!

    A Link Between Worlds might be the best Zelda in recent years. By diverting from the standard formula by letting you rent items and even decide in which order you go through all of the dungeons, known elements finally feel fresh again.

    It is a shame Total War: Warhammer has not been made before because this game is fantastic in every way. All factions come to life, there are game mechanics that make every race different; they give the game personality. Thanks to the spectacular battles and four strong campaigns, this is the best Total War game we have ever played.

    This game pack is awesome. It not only breathes quality, it really shows the love that 343 Industries has for the Halo series. Both single-player and multiplayer within this game are solid, smooth and complete.

    Dark Souls 2 is more and better. Enemies are smarter, and there's a wealth of bosses to find. Drangleic is an immense, beautiful world, amazing design, although it disappoints graphically. Fortunately there's so much content to discover that you'll hardly have time to occupy yourself with that.

    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!
