    An instant classic that mixes the best of old-school Zeldas with some of the best Nintendo ideas of recent years. Brilliant level designs, great bosses and better in some new mechanics than its Nintendo DS predecessors.

    Capcom reincarnates the essence of the classic Street Fighter II in this fourth chapter: a tribute to the old school 2D fighting genre embodied with outstanding visuals and online capabilities. Street Fighter IV should be considered a new climax among beat-'em ups: perfect in its execution, solid gameplay, addictive as a masterpiece, and extremely fun. It is only weakened by a few pale scenarios and uncharming tunes, not to mention Capcom's decision to charge for the alternate costumes.

    The Witcher II is a technical, creative and narrative triumph, a game that pushes videogames closer to maturity thanks to an excellent and strong direction which honors Sapkowski's work. Not even the poor ending can eclipse the masterful RPG archieved by CD Projekt.

    Super Mario 3D World is one of the best Mario games. It's a perfect mix between New Super Mario Bros co-op, 3D Land platforming experience and some of the best skills of other franchise games. This game has one of the most varied and brilliant level design that we remember in any EAD Tokyo development.

    It's one of the most acclaimed classic games in history and continues working as well as before. Ocarina of Time 3DS shows its mechanics never grow old and its magic doesn't succumb over time. 3D, redesign and extra content for which is, indisputably, the best game of the portable console.

    Fallout 3 is one of this year's best games. It's an unforgettable journey that lives up to the series.

Welcome to this post-apocaliptic reality, where you are going to spend hundreds of hours.

    Portal 2 is the great game that fans hoped. GLaDOS is back to make our life difficult. It doesn't allow us out of this hell that is the Aperture laboratory. Vegetation, more puzzles and many new challenges for one or two players.

    Little Big Planet is revolutionary thanks to its flexible, fun and powerful editor. Creating a quality level takes time but the feeling of achievement is overwhelming. A must for everyone who loves creativity or likes to explore what the creativity of a passionate community can produce.

    A great pack of four games full of content: over hundred multiplayer maps, great variety of modes, four epic and intense co-op campaigns and smoother visuals for the remake of Halo 2. It's a must have for any Xbox One owner.

    A masterpiece in audiovisual design, a fantastic action game and another testimony to the craft, the imagination and the ambition of Irrational. However, the campaign is a bit shorter than what was expected and it´s obvious the studio has not reached the full range of their objectives.

    Another great remaster for one of the most special Nintendo games. Dark, complex and challenging, the sequel to Ocarina of Time has an incredible side-quest system and this version adds some improvements like great 3D effects and better visuals.

    The War on Terror never rests. The same goes for Infinity Ward, who raises the bar again with Modern Warfare 2. Its new campaign keeps delivering a cinematic, inmersive, and visually spectacular experience, while polishing AI and respawn issues, and offering a minimum of 8 hours of gameplay. Without a multiplayer rival, where it's as powerful as a Tactical Nuke, including a first approach to coop, and archiving excellence in every aspect, this last Call of Duty proves itself as a very solid candidate to become the game of the year.

    This is the return of the great Bioware, back on a path that we hope they don't leave ever again. Emotive amount and variety of content makes for an incredible adventure.

    Nowadays, Forza 3 is the best driving simulator for consoles. Its great visuals, the incredible physics engine, and the huge array of online and offline game modes, create a must-have game for lovers of racing games. Right now, it's the king of the road.

    Uncharted 2 has no rival on the PS3. There's no other game, despite Killzone 2 on the visuals, with the same level of quality as Naughty Dog's newest game. The rhythm of the game is fast-paced and action-packed, and includes some fun, well-thought-out dialogue. The game is almost perfect in every stage, and it has online coop and deathmatch; there's no doubt that it's one of the top three games for the PS3, and one of the five best games of this year.

    Markus Phoneix leaves the Xbox 360 with an enormous and well-told adventure that exceeds all expectations. A lot of online modes, great Horde 2.0 and all the gameplay that characterizes the journeys of Gears. Magnificent!

    Red Dead Redemption offers a script that Sergio Leone would have loved to film, and the epic of Sam Peckinhpah. A great sandbox, with a compelling story, that may not be a masterpiece, but it delivers. Have no doubts: ride your horse, play as John Marston and let yourself be swept away.

    Battlefield 3 offers one of the best multiplayer modes out there. The Frostbite 2 engine is capable of amazing things in order to show the most realistic war we've seen to date. Its only flaws are an extremely short campaign and a co-op mode that could have been much better.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars includes everything you know and love about the Grand Theft Auto series. This game demonstrates a mastery of DS form and function, and introduces some interesting elements and ways to explore through the touch screen. Awesome graphics, old-school mechanics… Chinatown Wars is one of the best DS games ever made.

    LA Noire is a very special adventure. An interactive thriller with interrogations, detective sources, charismatic characters and a great plot that make it into one of the best games of this generation.

    Bioware has managed to update and evolve the formula that made Baldur's Gate 2 a classic, creating an engaging, rich, and solidly fantastic universe that feels consistently coherent and credible. Dragon Age is a triumph that shows, among other things, how the core values of the traditional roleplaying genre are still valid, managing to include a complete and versatile combat system that welcomes new players and will challenge veterans, with difficult encounters where tactics are the key to victory. Overall, it's a really special RPG, which truly deserves to be called "epic".

    Better late than never, Mass Effects finally comes to PS3 with an excellent port of the second part. While is unfortunate that PS3 only users won't experiment the first entry of the series, this version of the sequel offers a good chance to get into the series. Furthermore, the package is great and full of content, which adds a good value to it.

    Mass Effect 2 captures the elements that made the original a game to remember, showing once more the mastery of Bioware creating great stories and unforgettable characters. Not happy with that, the studio shows their will to surpass themselves with a very improved combat system which does a lot of right things to approach the gameplay of the best third person shooters available. Perhaps, in some aspects the team has been too overzealous to streamline certain aspects of the first game, loosing a bit of the original ingenuity, but it can't be discussed that the result is a more polished and focused title.

    Ori and the Blind Forest isn't a revolution in genre, but is brilliant in all mechanics and level design. A challenging, difficult and intelligent game with impressive visuals and a great soundtrack.

    We love Corvo Attano, we adore how Arkane did it. Dishonored is one of the best experiences of stealth coupled with a sense of completely open and free superpower, in a beautiful world that is a masterpiece. Essential.

    Mario Kart 8 is probably the best game in the franchise. Great and balanced gameplay, full of options and modes, brilliant online multiplayer and good visuals. It's another must-have for Wii U users.
