Here are all the reasons why – exoskeleton suits, even faster and mobile movement, futuristic weaponry, a in-game Kevin Spacey and a litany of great multiplayer maps. Join up with a PMC and save the world from terrorism once again.
2. Assassin’s Creed: Rogue
Welcome to the Order of the Templar’s! Assassin’s Creed: Rouge puts on the opposite spectrum of the Assassin/Templar war.

Naval exploration makes its return, as well as the refined elements from series past.

5. Far Cry 4
Far Cry 4 arrives with the same addictive, open-world exploration seen in Far Cry 3. On its own, it places you in a new setting (the fictional country of Kyrat, based on the real-world Himalayas). This time, you’re sent out to take down the charismatic ruler known as Pagan Min and aid the Golden Path in reforming their country and people. The gunplay here is still great, so take pleasure in shooting down bums while riding on an elephant.
6. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
