    This War of Mine makes you realise the terrible nature of war better than a thousand ad-campaigns can. Trying to survive in this surreal world is hard, and asks sacrifices you are probably not willing to take. Very impressive.

    F1 2016 is the ultimate revanche on F1 2015's lack of a Career-mode. F1 2016's Career Mode is meaty and perfectly executed. Alongside the lovely racing experience and multiple other modes, F1 2016 is an excellent game that is a must buy for F1-fans.
