    Until Dawn is a damn near perfect game, which just breathes horror on every level. The game puts you in control of a group of teens and terrifies you while doing so. This is a must have if you own a PlayStation 4.

    Grand Theft Auto V is the magnum opus of the current generation. It has an amazing game world filled with loads of content and the feeling that you can do literally anything you want. Add three fantastic main characters to it, with their flaws and virtues and you have the recipe for this magnificent game. Nothing less than a masterpiece.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim does not only equal its legendary predecessor Oblivion; it surpasses it. The immense and atmospheric world and insane amount of content will have gamers captivated for months, while the more dynamic level structure and improved fighting possibilities won't allow for a single boring moment. Plus, Skyrim has dragons. Epic!

    A brilliant game that has so many small details that you'll get lost in its world. The conversations could have been a bit better but this never becomes a bother. The amount of freedom will overwhelm you and will bring you back for many more play throughs to come.

    Nothing less than a masterpiece. The game looks absolutely phenomenal and Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe deliver a great accomplishment with their acting. Writer David Cage grabs us with his compelling and emotional story. There are a few downsides, gameplay is pretty much the same as Heavy Rain, but that doesn’t spoil the greatness of this game.

    Rockstar told us the PC-version would be the ultimate version and they were right. GTA 5 on PC looks incredible and it works almost perfectly. Sadly you might still encounter some bugs and glitches in GTA Online that you already saw on the consoles.

    With the second episode of Season 2 of The Walking Dead, TellTale delivers it's best episode yet. Everything you want from this kind of story driven game is here: difficult choices that really matter, a high pace and no glitches or technical difficulties. You are probably already invested in the story, but if you still need to begin with this great series, this is the time to do so.

    From Software reinvents the gameplay we love from Dark Souls with Bloodborne, and delivers the best game on the PlayStation 4 yet. Except for the loading times there is no reason not to give this amazing game a try.

    With BioShock Infinite, Irrational Games shows how to really tell a story in a video game. But not only is the story amazing, the combat is more fluid and dynamic than its predecessors, and Columbia is a place that begs to be explored. BioShock Infinite offers a journey that every gamer needs to experience.

    The best Batman game by far. Rocksteady has perfected the formula by offering a beautiful open world, more than twenty hours of main story and a broad number of diverse activities. This game really lets the franchise end with a bang.

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shows that neither the series nor Nintendo has lost its touch. The innovative controls add to the gameplay and turn every fight into a challenge. Furthermore, the traditionally strong level design proves itself once again, with the superb music and visuals making this one of the greats of this year.
