Alex

ALEX

#1 FIFA 14

Everything about FIFA this year just feels so much more realistic than before. There's nothing better to play with your mates.

Carl

CARL

#1 Papers Please

I just like that it was really different. That, and having to choose between what's good for your family, or for total strangers.

Damien

DAMIEN

#1 Tomb Raider

This game turned Lara from the stereotype she'd become into a real character. And I loved the immersiveness of the island, too.

Emma

EMMA

#1 Grand Theft Auto V

I love the freedom of it, choosing whether to do the missions or just go round stealing stuff. Both are fun. GTA Online is cool, too.

Jamie

JAMIE

#1 Hotline Miami

Maybe the most addictive game I have ever played! 80's neon visuals, an amazing soundtrack and violent gameplay.

Jason

JASON

#1 Tomb Raider

Lara came back to show these newcomers that she is still the toughest lady of any generation, and it looked great, too.

Kirsten

KIRSTEN

#1 Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The only game this year which I genuinely loved and enjoyed playing. The 3D and the wall merging ability just makes it superb.

Laurie

LAURIE

#1 Pokémon X & Pokémon Y

A game I will enjoy picking up and playing all throughout the year. With all the new options it's a good dose of the growing Pokémon world.

Louis

LOUIS

#1 Bioshock Infinite

A truly breathtaking adventure, which remains both gripping and fun to the end.

Marc

MARC

#1 Grand Theft Auto V

I played this more than any other game last year and still finding crazy stuff to do in it now!

Nick

NICK

#1 Bioshock Infinite

Columbia felt like a possible place and, for once in a game, somewhere I'd actually like to visit. And as for the ending... Mind. Blown.

Shannon

SHANNON

#1 Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Crickey mun, it's a flippin right tidy game en'it! Youer missin' out if you aint yet played this one mun!

Simon

SIMON

#1 Grand Theft Auto V

This GTA had a little bit of everything, with multiple characters, a massive open world and improved online play. A great gaming package.

Tom

TOM

#1 Tearaway

Colourful and fun, Tearaway excels on so many levels as it utilises all the features of the PS Vita without them feeling like gimmicks.
