    [h=3]Abzu[/h]Art exists to bridge a gap, to communicate emotions or ideas that would otherwise be impossible to articulate. Abzu does this--courageously, confidently, sincerely. Its stirring soundtrack, vivid colors, subtle storytelling, living world, and thoughtful execution combine to create a singularly moving, transcendent experience. In a word: Abzu is beautiful.

    [​IMG]Abzu[h=3]Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag[/h]
    "There's an incredible scope to what you can do in Black Flag, with a level of harmony between its component parts that encourages you to try it all, and a story that keeps you invested throughout the whole thing."

    [​IMG]Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag[h=3]Axiom Verge[/h]"The chilling sci-fi setting, mysterious plot, and a seemingly endless number of abilities keep your mind busy, and your curiosity at fever pitch. It's not a stretch to say that Axiom Verge is better than the games that inspired it, because it's so inventive and thoughtfully crafted."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Axiom Verge[h=3]Battlefield 4[/h]
    "Battlefield 4 multiplayer is a blast and definitely the best reason to return to this hallowed franchise or dive in for the first time. Though the campaign makes strides in the right direction, it remains a sideshow to the main event. Expansive and exciting, challenging and empowering, Battlefield 4 multiplayer is a thrilling endeavor in this generation or the next."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Battlefield 4[h=3]Bloodborne[/h]"Bloodborne's excellent action, beautiful artistry, and religious melodrama make it another must-play in the Demon's Souls tradition."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Bloodborne[h=3]Borderlands: The Handsome Collection[/h]"Let’s be clear: You don’t have to be Handsome Jack’s number-one fan to appreciate Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. But even if you’re not, you will still find an impressive archive, chock full of dozens upon dozens of hours of laughter and exciting combat."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Borderlands: The Handsome Collection[h=3]Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare[/h]"For all its predictability, Advanced Warfare is a deluge of action-film bravado, and it's difficult to not be carried away by its tidal forces."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare[h=3] [/h]
    [h=3]Dark Souls III[/h]"This is the third in a series of dark fantasy role-playing games known for their brutal difficulty and unforgiving nature. It gives minimal direction and little room for error. As with its predecessors, playing Dark Souls III means accepting two extremes: recurring defeat, and the reward of breaking through it. This is a game that recognizes the value of perseverance, tearing you down before it pulls you back up, reinforcing the spots where it broke you, preparing you for that next valley just down the road."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Dark Souls III[h=3]Doom[/h]"But without a doubt, the loud and chaotic campaign is Doom's strongest component. It's straightforward and simple, but it serves its purpose: to thrust you into increasingly dire scenarios fueled by rage and the spirit of heavy metal. Many shooters chase the thrill Doom delivers, but few are as potent in their execution. It captures the essence of what made the classic Doom games touchstones of their day, and translates it to suit modern palates with impressively rendered hellscapes and a steady influx of tantalizing upgrades. Doom is the product of a tradition as old as shooters, and while it's not the model to follow in every case, modern shooters could learn a thing or two from Doom's honed and unadulterated identity."

    [h=3]Final Fantasy Type-0 HD[/h]"Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is about the fluid and frantic action, which propels you towards the next battle, and then the next, and then the next. The overarching story is tough to chew on, but the heartfelt personal stories vividly address the ugly side of war--the blood, the gore, and the sadness that lingers even when the memories of why you were fighting fade away."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Final Fantasy Type-0 HD[h=3]Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn[/h]
    "There's no traditional PVP, and at times the grind can grow tedious, but if you press on, you find a vast and charming supporting cast, complex classes with plenty of interesting augmentations along the way, and a reworked MMORPG that combines new and old elements to weave together a satisfying and modern Final Fantasy"

    [​IMG][​IMG]Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn [h=3]flower[/h]
    "Like a snowy mountain ridge or a tranquil river valley, Flower invites introspection and inner calm, and that kind of interactive experience is almost as rare now as it was when I first surfed these winds."

    [​IMG][​IMG]flower[h=3]Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved[/h]"Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved advances the challenge, satisfaction, and frustration of Geometry Wars 3 at every turn."
    • Read the review • Watch the latest trailer
    [​IMG][​IMG]Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved.[h=3]Grim Fandango Remastered [/h]"Grim Fandango remains an absolute delight--funny, good-hearted, and fun to play."
    • Read the review • Watch the latest trailer
    [​IMG][​IMG]Grim Fandango Remastered[h=3]Headlander[/h]"From its odd mechanics to its captivating presentation, Headlander's parallels to Metroid bubble under the surface; it's the game's fresh qualities that grab your attention and make it one of the most delightful takes on the well-worn formula in years."
    • Read the review
    [​IMG][​IMG]Headlander[h=3]Helldivers[/h]"Helldivers is a persistent online universe rich in combat but low on story."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Helldivers[h=3]inFamous: Second Son[/h]
    "Second Son focuses on pure enjoyment . . . It draws you in further through its incredible visuals that not only hint at the PlayStation 4's impressive power, but employ a sensible artistic touch that makes Seattle a place you want to explore."

    [​IMG][​IMG]inFamous: Second Son[h=3]Journey (PS4)[/h]"It is possible that Journey will not move you. In such a case, it is simply a beautiful game with a glorious soundtrack, grounded by a wistful cello melody later threaded through a warm quilt of winds and strings. The chance you might be swept away, however, makes it worth plunging your feet into the warm sand. If you are returning to Journey, a higher resolution and a higher frame rate are your ostensible rewards for returning--a return that doesn't cost you anything if you already own the game on the PlayStation 3. But Journey's real rewards aren't so pedestrian. Journey offers you comfort. It gives you companionship in a lovely but forsaken world. It gives you reason to dream even when facing loss."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Journey[h=3]Metro Redux[/h]"It's that ebb and flow, that movement in and out of danger, and the panic you feel when danger finds you even when you think you should be most at peace, that makes Metro Redux such an excellent tour through the best and worst of a society in ruins."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Metro Redux[h=3] [/h]

    [h=3]Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor[/h]"This is a great game in its own right, narratively disjointed but mechanically sound, made up of excellent parts pieced together in excellent ways."
    • Read or watch the review • Watch the latest trailer
    [​IMG][​IMG]Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor[h=3] [/h][h=3]MLB 16 The Show[/h]"MLB 16 The Show improves in many ways it needed to, but don't expect it to feel like a totally new game. New features like ShowTime and Conquest, along with steady-if-unspectacular improvements to on-field action, animations, and visuals, make for subtly better game that fans of the franchise will appreciate. Once again, Sony makes it look easy by giving us yet another baseball simulation that not only hits ’em where they ain’t, it clears the fences completely on a regular basis."

    [​IMG][​IMG]MLB 16 The Show[h=3]Mortal Kombat X[/h]"Mortal Kombat X successfully continues the tradition of mixing a fighting game with gore-laced slapstick."

    [h=3]NBA 2K15[/h]"NBA 2K15's overhauled movement system and improved shooting mechanics make it the best-playing basketball game in existence."

    [​IMG][​IMG]NBA 2K15[h=3]OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood[/h]
    "OlliOlli2 adds a few changes to the original game's formula, but 'more of the same' is enough to make this excellent sequel a consistent joy."
    • Read the review • Watch the latest trailer
    [​IMG][​IMG]OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood[h=3]Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty[/h]
    "With clever puzzles near identical to the original game, and beautiful environments brought to life with new visuals and a dynamic camera, New 'n' Tasty satiated me, even though I'm an Oddworld veteran and know each solution and secret area like the back of my (scarred) hand."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty[h=3]Overwatch[/h]"Overwatch is an intelligent cascade of disparate ideas, supporting one another, pouring into one another, and coiling around themselves as they flow into the brilliant shooter underneath."
    • Read or watch the review
    [​IMG][​IMG]Overwatch[h=3]Ratchet & Clank[/h][​IMG][​IMG]"Ratchet & Clank is every bit as dynamic and fun as the 2002 original. It’s endearing and entertaining, a veritable power fantasy fueled by rockets and carried by specialty gadgets. Re-introducing a classic franchise to a new generation is a difficult task indeed, but Ratchet & Clank is a shining example of how it can be done."

    [h=3]Rayman Legends[/h]
    "Momentum is the name of the game in this 2D platformer. Rayman runs, leaps, swings, glides, and swims with a kinetic grace that compels you ever onward."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Rayman Legends[h=3]Resogun[/h]
    "It's classic arcade action imbued with hard-hitting artistic and gameplay elements. Falling in love with Resogun is easy, and mastering it is challenging, and the combination of these two qualities makes Resogun almost impossible to put down."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Resogun[h=3]Rogue Legacy[/h]
    "It's almost unfair to compare Rogue Legacy to other games that emphasize permanent death. It doesn't have the secrets of Spelunky and it's more predictable than The Binding of Isaac, yet at the end of every game comes a desire to hop right back in, spend your gold on some upgrades and rack up more monster kills"

    [​IMG][​IMG]Rogue Legacy[h=3]Skylanders Trap Team[/h]"I had an excellent time playing co-op with my son in Skylanders Trap Team, but if you don't have a little rugrat, don't let it dissuade you from playing. There's plenty of joy to be had for grown-ups in Trap Team, and more than a few laughs as well."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Skylanders Trap Team[h=3]Sound Shapes[/h]
    "Sound Shapes is a transcendent experience in so many ways. Maybe its most important contribution is giving a voice to the world through music and action."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Sound Shapes[h=3]Sportsfriends[/h]
    "Like darts or foosball, they may not be something to base an entire party around, but they're welcome diversions that anyone can enjoy, making Sportsfriends an easy recommendation provided you've got friends and controllers."

    "From the moment you embark on your journey right up until the final deathblow, Strider is a blast to play. Controlling this agile ninja feels empowering right out of the gate, and each new upgrade brings with it an enjoyable new way to engage your foes."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Strider[h=3]The Last of Us Remastered[/h]
    "The Last of Us is a great action game that you should play if you haven't already. And if you have played it before, the improvements here aren't so dramatic as to make the game feel like a new experience, but it is definitely one worth revisiting."

    [​IMG][​IMG]The Last of Us Remastered[h=3]The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt[/h]"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best games ever made"
    • Read or watch the review • Watch the latest trailer
    [​IMG][​IMG]The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt[h=3]Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition[/h]
    "What's most remarkable about Tomb Raider is how its many elements so perfectly complement each other, so that no matter which activity you're currently engaged in, you're fully invested."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition[h=3]Towerfall Ascension[/h]
    "With a few friends, Towerfall Ascension is a fantastic multiplayer game that offers a ton of variations on its enjoyable archery combat. Just make sure those friends can join you on the couch."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Towerfall Ascension[h=3]Transistor[/h]
    "Transistor is always a good-looking game, but in these instances, it demonstrates a rare knack for combining its visuals and music to powerfully convey both narrative information and tone, driving the story forward with Red's own unwavering resolve."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Transistor[h=3]Trials Fusion[/h]
    "This is another expertly designed entry in the enthralling series. Though the core action remains largely unchanged, it's as exciting as it has ever been, thanks in part to the gorgeous visual design that brings each location to life."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Trials Fusion[h=3]Uncharted 4: A Thief's End[/h]"As its final moments make clear, this is a story about storytelling--the importance we lend our idols, legends, and myths. How we pass down the ones that inspire us. How an old photo of three friends sitting on a pile of gold can unleash a flood of memories. Uncharted 4 is a challenge to the medium. In its writing, in its design, in its understanding of what makes games unique, Uncharted 4 is something to aspire to. It's a shining example. And we'll be talking about it for years to come."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Uncharted 4: A Thief's End[h=3]Velocity 2X[/h]"Velocity 2X's ingredients are basic in themselves. Shooting down enemy ships isn't interesting on its own, but when combined with an exceptional system for movement and tied to an omnipresent clock, it feels truly special."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Velocity 2X[h=3]Watch Dogs[/h]
    "Watch Dogs is a lushly produced and riotous game with an uncanny ability to push you from one task to the next, each of which is just as fun as the last."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Watch Dogs[h=3]Wolfenstein: The New Order[/h]
    "The New Order's combat intensity and variety have granted the Wolfenstein series a breath of fresh air, whilst still managing to hit the nostalgic highs that I expect from the series."

    [​IMG][​IMG]Wolfenstein: The New Order* GameSpot's Best Of Lists will be updated periodically as new games worthy of inclusion are released on their respective platforms.
