  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. FIFA 15
  4. Splatoon
  5. Battlefield Hardline

In our The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt review we awarded the game 10/10.

"Where the Witcher 2 sputtered to a halt, The Witcher 3 is always in a crescendo, crafting battle scenarios that constantly one-up the last, until you reach the explosive finale and recover in the glow of the game's quiet denouement," said our reviewer.

"But while the grand clashes are captivating, it is the moments between conflicts, when you drink with the local clans and bask in a trobairitz's song, that are truly inspiring."
