    Rayman Origins is the best platform game for the current generation of consoles. The old fashioned gameplay will be loved by many gamers, and the offline co-op mode is outstanding. Hail Rayman!

    The FIFA franchise claims the victory over the Pro Evolution Soccer series again this year. FIFA 11 is definitely the best football game available, at least for the next twelve months.

    Minecraft on the Xbox 360 is just as fun as it is on the PC. The only limitation is your own imagination.

    Dishonored is an essential purchase for the self-respecting lover of videogames. The game offers an intelligent and exciting experience which makes this one of the best games of the year. Dunwall is just as impressive in Dishonored as Rapture was in BioShock, and the magic powers are incredibly awesome to use. Eventually there is nothing to criticize this game for. A true must have.

    Torchlight II is a modern fairytale and offers a surplus of great action RPG elements. Comparable to Diablo III you say? We dare to claim it's even better. An awesome, colorful dream coming to you from your computer screen. Definitely a thumbs up for developer Runic.

    Episode 5 is a home run for Telltale and the entire Tales from the Borderlands series. Witty, heart-wrenching and so damn well-written. The perfect final episode to a perfect series. Now we'll wait for season 2.

    From Software has clearly learned from its earlier mistakes by creating an absolutely wonderful PC version this time around. Shame about the monstrous keyboard and mouse controls, but nothing a controller won't fix. Aside of that, the core gameplay really shines, because of the many subtle improvements the PC version enjoys. The biggest achievement, however, is that one of the greatest games of 2014 has managed to become even greater.

    This is definitely the best PS Vita game so far! The game makes full use of all the motion possibilities that are available. Furthermore, Sackboy proves to be more than just a pretty face. The game contains enough innovative content and is so a lot of fun to play.

    Mark of the Ninja has almost everything you can wish for in a game like this. The animations are wonderful and the soundtrack suits the game well. You can play the game in various ways and this extends its lifespan. With a minor flaw the game may not be perfect, but the game is very close to it.

    Nioh makes one of the best action-RPGs ever made. An immense amount of features combined in a challenging game, which will take more than 40 hours of your life. No regrets so far.

    The remasters of both Final Fantasy X and X-2 are the perfect tributes to the fact that the older Final Fantasy games still provide breathtaking journeys which every RPG fan owes himself to experience at least once in his lifetime.

    Kirby: Planet Robobot is an extremely fun 2D action platformer that uses old and new mechanics from the series in smart ways. While a bit short, the game is sure to provide a fun gameplay experience.

    This game can get a little chaotic but that doesn't matter considering how developer Monolith Soft has executed everything nearly perfectly. Agreed, the voice acting isn't perfect at all but the deep and beautiful world and the great fighting system make up for that, creating a wonderful experience for fans of the better role-playing games.

    Despite a few minor flaws we concluded that Twilight Princess is still a joy to play. Temples like the Goron Mines, Snowpeak Ruins and City in the Sky are timeless and are easily among the best temples of the Zelda franchise.

    Forza Horizon 2 is perfect in many ways. Visually it is awesome, the details are awesome, the music is awesome and the Drivatars are awesome. That plus lots of different modes makes us forget the lags.

    Minecraft is finally available for the PlayStation 4 and it's still a great game. With a bigger world and more view-distance, Minecraft is a perfect game for both beginners and PS3-veterans, though the game doesn't offer anything new.

    Gears of War 3 is a must buy shooter that offers you hours and hours of gameplay. It's got a long campaign and the multiplayer is better then ever. Epic Games has made good adaptations. But don't expect really big innovations.

    In comparison with the current-gen of consoles, Battlefield 4 is the shooter for the next-gen consoles. The graphics are even more stunning than before and there’s an ability to play with more gamers on the console. Choose the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One-version above the current-gen versions.

    Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is the definitive version of Dark Souls II. The new enemy placement and lore give veterans a good reason to play through it again and for newcomers it is a great way to experience an already great game.

    With Guitar Hero 5 Neversoft almost succeeded in creating the perfect music game. Only some small mistakes prevent this game from scoring the complete 100 points. Still this game is the best music game at this moment.

    This downloadable content is as good as the main game. You'll get a new character and a new boss. And it's creepy and fun at the same time.
