From its robust art to its meaningful character progression, we fail to remember a game that has ever delivered a package of goods so beautiful and complete as Owlboy has done.

There's a moment in the beginning chapters of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End where series hero Nathan Drake and his wife Elena sit at home on their couch and eat dinner while talking ,as two normal people living normal lives in a normal house. The dissonance of this scene compared to the expected run and gun Indiana Jones-style action of the franchise is deafening, and yet this brief moment of routine sets a perfect tone for the rest of the game.
Every moment of Necrodancer is fun and engaging, the music is some of the best original music in any rhythm game, and the entire experience feels very original.
Whether its praises are being sung or its being condemned as too odd of a departure from the series roots, anyone who has an opinion about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is passionate about it. Divisive as it may be, Majora’s Mask is an important game in the Zelda series; not for its technical innovations, but for its storytelling and gameplay achievements. Majora’s Mask changed the way Zelda games told a story, and how the player progressed through it.
As a seasoned veteran of the series from the very beginning, believe me when I tell you that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the pinnacle of Smash.
The latest adventure starring Link is The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, a sequel to 1991's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This new journey features a new iteration of Link, Princess Zelda, the Master Sword and all of the trappings you've come to expect from a Legend of Zelda game, but with several improvements that makes this perhaps the best top-down Zelda game ever released.
Few apps get released with as much fanfare as an Infinity Blade installment, and now the final part in the trilogy is upon us, as warriors Siris and Isa battle the fates to take down the Worker of Secrets (voiced by Fringe actor John Noble). Along with its epic storyline, the franchise is also known for its swipe based and highly addicting combat system, which is one of the reasons it's considered a classic in iOS gaming. All that momentum, however, can possibly lead to disappointment. Is Infinity Blade III's mighty sword still as sharp as can be, or have the past few years dulled its power?
Once in awhile, a video game comes along to transcend the medium beyond what you thought possible. It elevates the bar so high that other games that were once thought to be great are now a bit inadequate in comparison. Does The Last of Us elevate video games into the stratosphere of storytelling, graphics, and gameplay?
First and foremost: I can confirm that Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption is, in fact, quite ridiculous ... like, chronicles of ridiculous. Though if you keep up on mobile gaming at all, you might have heard something about it already. Since its release last week, the new title from Vlambeer has ridden a wave of critical support that has garnered it a near perfect rating on the iTunes store. And it's obvious right from the start, Ridiculous Fishing has an incredible amount of sheen and polish to it.
Crazy Taxi was the best game ever. I bought a Sega Dreamcast just to play this. Before that I’d go to the arcades that had sit down taxi versions of the game. It’s based on the amazing premise, you pick up a passenger and then you take them to where they’re going. Then you pick up another one and take THEM to where THEY’RE going. Then you pick up ANOTHER ONE! The game never has to end!
