    Assassin's Creed III comes as an arrow lit on fire in the ranking list of the best games of the year. The semi-historic settings in New York and Boston in combination with the gorgeous woods make this game by far the best in the franchise.

    FIFA 13 did not become the most perfect football game ever, but the gameplay is still astonishing. Gamers should get this game for the online experience alone.

    With Resident Evil 7, the series goes back to its roots. Tight corridors, a sublime audiovisual presentation and sinister enemies make the game a true survival-horror experience. It has some minor flaws, but overall the game truly delivers.

    Trackmania Turbo is an ode to the fans of the franchise, who are able to play the best Trackmania game so far on consoles. But how long are you willing to keep playing?

    Diluvion is one great sea adventure like you've never seen. A must-buy if you hold on to the stigma around under water games.

    The Gunstringer is a short game but it packs a lot of power. The gameplay is simply great, with the odd movement registration failure in between, and takes you on an adventure through a very weird and at time hilarious version of the Wild West. You'll be sure to play this game more than once, considering the tons of unlockables and extra features.

    Gears of War 4 delivers a familiar gameplay experience, while still feeling fresh and new. Although the campaign has its flaws, the story stays interesting. Together with the new and improved Horde mode and multiplayer, Gears of War 4 is a blast to play.

    Final Fantasy XIII is probably the RPG of the year and therefore a must have for any RPG-lover. The game is very strong, has beautiful graphics and good voice-acting. Unfortunately after completing this adventure we again have to wait a couple of years for a new part.

    The Legend of Zelda Tri Force Heroes takes an original concept and takes it everywhere you want it to go. There is plenty of fun for three players, but the experiences takes a hit when you go at it alone. Recommended for all 3DS owners.

    Splinter Cell: Conviction is a game that will keep you on the edge of your seat for at least eight hours. The new direction that is chosen is a good one, even though the ride could have lasted a little longer.

    NBA 2K13 really proves to be the king of sport franchises. The music, the atmosphere, the total package this basketball palooza breathes NBA and America. All there is left to say is that 2K13 basically is a slam dunk on all fronts.

    Nearly every issue from last year has been fixed, but it's a shame that some online issues still appear. But even with all the other minor issues found throughout the game, NBA 2K12 is a very solid presentation.

    By making The Beatles: Rock Band, Harmonix did a really good job and the game is certainly good in all ways. Unfortunately the few new things aren't all useful and the game doesn't support the other Rock Band content. However, this game is full of Flower Power and therefore you really need to play this at least once in your life.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is quite the handsome collection for gamers who haven't experienced Borderlands before. It's smoother, better and more beautiful than its predecessors on the older generation.

    Everything that Michael Jordan touches, turns into gold. NBA 2K11 is the best game of its kind because of all the improvements that Visual Concepts has added.

    Advanced Warfare is the best Call of Duty in years. Kevin Spacey is brilliant and the multiplayer is just smooth. The best shooter of 2014.

    A larger playable area, new weapons, abilities, vehicles and a new storyline haven't always proven to be a working formula in the past. Nonetheless did Techland take these elements and combined them to great success.

    Darksiders brings you everything you expect. A beautiful post apocalyptic world combined with excellent audio and a real cool gameplay, deserves nothing less than a high score.

    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition offers the same solid game experience, but as the DLC's that are included are not brilliant, we wonder if the the astonishing graphics is worth the big price difference with the original one.

    Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits is actually a bit too expensive for the relatively small track list. You might wonder why it's a totally new game in stead of downloadable songs, furthermore it's all too similar to Guitar Hero: World Tour. However de game is still strong and once you start to play you don't want to stop singing or drumming, because these new features are now possible.
