5. Need for Speed by Electronic Arts (Platform: PS4)
Another installment of this classic game. Made by Ghost Games and published by Electronic Arts, this game is sure to excite you this holiday season. Released in early November 2015, game has had mixed reception from critics so far. The game has been lauded for its’s remarkable visuals (especially depicting the roads at night) & life-like sound effects but has was criticized for its short single player mode & unsatisfying online multiplayer experience.

2. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (Platform: Windows, XBox One, PS4)
” Teaching History the right way,” some say about the Assasin’s Creed platform. The latest release takes you to 1868 London during the Industrial Revolution. As ever the Assain’s Creed provides freedom over a large game universe for your character. The game is a little different from its predecessors as it takes a dual character approach with two siblings as the main protagonists. You can freely switch between the two characters & will have a different set of side missions for both. The game has been rated very highly and with more than 25 hours of gameplay/storyline you would not be bored easily even though it misses the multiplayer feature entirely.
1. Fallout 4 (Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows)
By far this game has generated the most hype in 2015 and it hasn’t failed to deliver. The 4th edition in the series which takes you to a post-apocalyptic world is nothing short of a blockbuster. Like previous versions, Fallout 3 and FallOut: Las Vegas the gameplay allows you to explore vast detailed locations. IGN review’s the game by stating “After more than 55 hours played I may have seen an ending, yet I feel like I’ve only begun to explore its extraordinary world; from the look of it, I’ll easily be able to spend another 100 happy hours here and still see new and exciting things.” No platform captures the open gameplay world concept better than this game!.
