    Last year, I called Crusader Kings 2 the best game that Paradox had ever produced. Now it is joined by Europa Universalis 4.

    The most amazing thing about this criminal saga is not only its scale, but that it perfectly works on several levels. Spine-tingling driving, fun missions, excellent dialogue, fully fleshed characters, vicious satire on pretty much everything… One play-through is not enough to appreciate GTA 5 in all its multi-layered glory.

    Aftermath is the best out of all Battlefield 3 DLCs. Its maps tend to favor infantry, but the experience is as tense as ever.

    It would have been cool if every nation added in The Old Gods got the same detailed treatment as the ones from the Legacy of Rome expansion, but still, this is a fascinating journey into the unforgiving Dark Ages.

    Sons of Abraham integrates into the original game so seamlessly that it feels like it has always been there.

    Last year, Expeditions: Conquistador and Shadowrun Returns proved that Kickstarter can help create a good RPG. But The Banner Saga is not just good – it’s amazing.

    Basically, it’s the second full-length movie based on South Park, now fully interactive. Even bigger, longer and uncut.

    Road Not Taken is an endless stream of puzzles and a mysterious world which you just can’t stop exploring. Every new secret you solve brings up new exciting questions.

    Chaos on Deponia is not an ideal adventure game, but it is totally worthy of being called a true successor to Monkey Island.

    Fisher’s annoyingly sulky character, questionable controls when it comes to grabbing people next to doors, traditionally daft ending level and the buggy Uplay services – these are pretty much all the sins of Blacklist. They can be easily forgiven because the rest of the game is stealth action goodness.

    Goodbye Deponia is a wild rollercoaster ride - a bigger, smarter and funnier adventure than the previous Deponia games. It will earn a place in your heart even after it totally fails to deliver a proper cathartic ending.

    The boring misadventures of US marines in China is nothing more than a six-hour tutorial for those who don’t want to jump into multiplayer head first. But to hell with the stupid story – Battlefield 4 delivers the best online battles out there right now, with amazing graphics to boot.

    Right now, Endless Legend is already much more balanced and fun than its direct competitor, Age of Wonders 3.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Amazingly beautiful tracks where you race, swim and fly, sometimes changing the level as you progress through it, are what makes this game great.

    Broken Age looks, sounds and plays so great that you can recommend it to anyone.

    The Republic is a great niche add-on. If Paradox continues to work on Crusader Kings 2 in this vein, eventually fans will be able to create a medieval grand strategy of their dreams by mixing and matching its expansions.

    Assassin's Creed 3 offers a spectacular way to fill in the blanks in your knowledge of the American Revolution - it never holds back on scope, drama or action.

    Scribblenauts Unlimited is a rare opportunity to forget about scripts and usual conventions, to create your own rules instead of playing by someone else's. Turns out, playing God is not as hard as it seems, and it's a whole lot of fun.

    This is probably the most original iOS game since Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.

    However predictable the ending of BioShock Infinite is, it is the journey that counts, and you will not go away disappointed.

    Brave New World brings a huge tangle of exciting political nuances that you’ll have to navigate on your way to world domination.

    An excellent arcade game with nice RPG elements and a massive replayability factor. You will enjoy Rogue Legacy if you’re not afraid to die – a lot.

    Conquest of Paradise is a solid, although somewhat narrowly-focused expansion.
    • 81 Metascore

    Apart from the abrupt epilogue and somewhat daft AI, Shadowrun: Dragonfall is a great expansion to the original game.
    • 87 Metascore

    TowerFall: Ascension is polished to almost perfection in both style and substance.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A great example of interactive storytelling where the story changes greatly depending on how you ‘read’ it.

    High Voltage Software produced a solid PC port, with a 60 fps frame rate, better visuals and excellent keyboard support. I wish they did not unlock all the characters, outfits and fatalities right off the bat, though.

    Brothers, unlike many recent indie hits, is very down to earth. It is not rife with intellectual puzzles like Braid, it is not as open to interpretations as Journey. It just makes you think about simple human values.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Wealth of Nations offers even less scope than Conquest of Paradise, and the changes it introduces are hardly game-changing, yet they’re all thought-out and very appropriate. If you’re going to play as a trade empire, don’t skimp on this expansion.

    Behind the plain-looking graphics lives an excellent logic game with perfect balance and multiple ways to solve each puzzle.
