Destiny

Destiny

Few games have divided opinion as much as Bungie’s $500m opus. Many gamers wrote it off as a second rate first person shooter with a woefully short campaign, but they completely missed the point of Destiny. Bungie has been ambitious in its intent and execution, creating a world populated by thousands of players all crossing paths, sometimes sharing the same purpose and other times at odds. And it’s interacting with those other players that’s key to enjoying Destiny. Yes, you can play as a lone wolf, but that will never be as much fun as taking on missions with friends. Rest assured that once Destiny gets under your skin it can quite literally take over your life!

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V

While GTA V may have hit the streets in 2013, it only made its way onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the end of 2014, just in time for Christmas in fact. And if you didn't play GTA V on Xbox 360 or PS3, you’re in for a major treat. Not only does the game look incredible on the latest generation of consoles, but Rockstar has also thrown in some cool new features, like first person control! Grand Theft Auto V is a landmark game in every sense of the word, and if Santa didn't leave a copy under your tree, you need to grab one yourself – just remember to pay for it!

Forza Horizon 2

Forza Horizon 2

The original Forza Horizon took everything that was great about Forza Motorsport 4 and dropped it into an open world environment, and the result was one of the most enjoyable driving games in years. This time the guts from Forza Motorsport 5 have been used to create Forza Horizon 2 and the result is staggeringly good! Your open world has moved to Europe, and you’ll be able to drive around some of the most beautiful roads that the Italian Alps and French Riviera have to offer. If you have even a passing interest in driving games, you need to have FH2 in your collection.

Mario Kart 8

While Nintendo’s latest console may not have enjoyed the unprecedented success of its predecessor; the latest iteration of Mario Kart is arguably the best yet. In fact it’s reasonable to suggest that it’s worth buying a Wii U just to play Mario Kart 8! Building on all the insanity seen in previous games, and adding just enough new spice to make it interesting, without losing the underlying feel, Mario Kart 8 proves that having fun can be more important than crossing the finish line first.

Alien Isolation

After the abysmal disappointment that was Aliens: Colonial Marine, many gamers had given up on Alien Isolation before it even hit the streets. That, however, was a huge mistake. What Sega created with AI is something very different and extremely refreshing. If you’re expecting to be wandering around a space ship taking out swarms of aliens with an arsenal of weapons, you’ll be very disappointed. Instead Sega has recreated the look, feel and heart stoppingly tense atmosphere of Ridley Scott’s original Alien movie. There’s basically one alien, and you spend the vast majority of the gaming running and hiding from it. And late at night, when the lights are off, Alien Isolation could well be the scariest game ever made.
