Bloodborne is a fearsome game with its harsh atmosphere and soul crushing ability. However, for those daredevils who can keep on with their adventure despite the dreadful Yharnam, it’s perhaps one of the most rewarding gaming experiences they will ever take.

If you survive long in this complexly interconnected world, you will find environments oozing character and bosses that will literally test your determination, and everything together with a mysterious story that will keep you engaged till the credits roll.
The Order: 1886
When it was launched in this year’s February The Order: 1886 got a lot of criticizing press, for unknown reasons though. It faced a lot of wrath for being short. Definitely, at about seven hours to finish, it actually not the longest title ever made, but those seven hours are fantastic!
This game gets an unbeatable place for being the best graphical model, the power consoles of this generation have to offer. The reproduction of Victorian London was just amazing and the only thing it could be condemned of was making players wish for more.
Life is Strange
Life is Strange by Dontnod Entertainment might seem like your own MTV reality show sometimes, but the intensity of emotions and practicality this title reaches into is far past anything been played ever before.
Due to its story-based “point and click” style it is usually compared to Telltale Games’ productions, but captivation, believability and compassionate character design outshines the likes of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. While not everybody can consider a high school girl as a central character, the happenings all through the story ensure that you are captivated from the beginning to end.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Inspired from the Polish author, Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novels, The Witcher games by CD Projekt RED are famous for their vast open worlds and first-grade story-telling. The third entrant into the series, Wild Hunt too didn’t disappoint.
The world of Witcher 3 is expansive, to the extent of daunting. However despite its size it has a dense population with things to do and see. Each locale has been carefully created to be exclusive and the advantage is it offers the illusion of a real world! You play the role of a monster hunter Geralt of Rivia who has got training and upgrades to deal with even the deadliest beasts, and the Witcher 3 offers more than 50 hours of immersive quest as you try to tack your adopted daughter Ciri and tackle with eponymous Wild Hunt.
Ori and the Blind Forest
Launched exclusively for PC and Xbox One in March this year, Ori and the Blind Forest was immediately heralded as one of the best indie games ever launched. The side-scrolling adventure resembling metroidvania stands apart from the rest with its glorious fairytale-like visuals and gut-pulling emotional cut scenes.
Setting itself out as the spiritual heir to Dead Island, Dying Light takes the game in a grave direction instead of the comic path that Dead Island 2 appears to be taking, containing a sprawling and expansive world infested by various types of zombies having various levels of viciousness. Dying Light is an enormous game with over 40 hours of gameplay. The game is adorned with captivating visuals, truly scary moments and stressful yet rewarding combats making the game one of the greatest open world action games of the present generation.
Project CARS was the first racing simulator title for this generation of consoles and so, was greatly anticipated but it faced numerous delays during creation. But the wait was worth, with flawless visuals and a huge library of tracks and cars. Slightly Mad Studio has secured a firm place for itself alongside the top-grade racing games.
Axiom Verge being a single-handedly created retro-style indie game by one man, there were not much expectations from it. But just within an hour of play, it was totally engaging to get lost into the eerie yet lovely pixleated world of Tom Happ, making you realize that it is quite unique. Everything from enemy creation to audio is so beautifully implemented that any adventure fan has to give this game a go. it’s an engaging game by every means, but considering the fact that it was created by just one man in his leisure hours, it’s simply incredible.
Mortal Kombat X
It was not an easy task to follow up 2011’s fabulous Mortal Kombat, but with a wonderful story mode, a bountiful of gameplay modifications and an introduction of a whole pack of interesting characters, Netherrealm Studios achieved it with Mortal Kombat X!
It continues the story from the point where Mortal Kombat left, but then jumps straight 20 years ahead in the future, enabling a new generation of fighters to enter the fight along with some favorites. The story is fun with an awesome direction and sharp focus from start to finish and offers a fantastic taste of the playing style of each character. Obviously, it wouldn’t have been Mortal Kombat without plenty of ways to disgrace your rivals upon their defeat and it doesn’t also discourage in this area. Sporting some of the most monstrous fatalities in the series till date, together with numerous fun brutalities, Mortal Kombat X is something that should not be missed.
