2- Devil May Cry : Definitive Edition
The Devil May Cry series is personal favorite series of mine, having played almost every significant installment of the franchise. The game has been passed through different developers at different releases , The latest release, Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition is made by Ninja Theory, the guys that brought Heavenly sword to you.
The games has had a drastic change compared to its previous versions. Ninja theory decided to change the look of Dante, the pivotal character, around who’s life this game revolves. They also made changes in the environment and give the storyline a different take this time.
Initially fans (including myself) were not happy about the new changes and also the claim of a different combat system in the new installment of the Devil May Cry series. Dante’s new look was met with a lot of criticism which made the chances of the game’s success ever so slim.
But Ninja Theory somehow managed to pull it off. The game came bundled with amazing graphics and a truly mesmerizing combat control scheme. The game was fast paced with new environments based on the same storyline, Dante’s abilities and New moves changed the gameplay and the new controls will keep you at the edge of your seat.
The game has received a lot of attention for its intense action, fast paced gameplay and the easy to use yet hard to master controls that make you feel totally in control of Dante.
The new Dante does full justice to its predecessor with awesome moves and the ever present CareFree attitude.
The game is definitely worth playing, if you have played a game in the series before, things just got better for you, and if you haven’t tried the game at all , then Merry Christmas to you, You are going to love every minute you spend playing this game 🙂
3- Wolfenstein : New Order
A lot of classic games are often resurrected and then brought down because of the terrible results it creates. Many big names and developers have tried the same task and have failed at it.
Video Game fans are not usually open to new ideas and changes when it comes to resurrecting classic games. Fans try to be as true as possible to the original and any new game that deviates from this path is not accepted at a larger scale.
Wolfenstein : New order , is the resurrection of the first, first person shooter by ID softwares, the original Wolfenstein.
The original game for the first time in that period, placed you as a gamer in the shoes of the protagonist, who held a gun that appeared in the middle, at the bottom of the screen while you searched entire nazi facilities, searching and killing anyone in your way.
The original game was played by millions and loved by billions. The new Wolfenstein isn’t just any other first person shooter trying to make money off of its franchise, it is a very engaging, entertaining and true to the roots experience for any gamer.
The game contains high quality graphics, beautiful textures and amazing new locations. The developers paid a huge amount of detail to the design of locations and other environments as no two locations in the game will ever look the same to you, the high resolution textures and 3D layering of the game will make sure that it creates a surreal experience for you.
The story of the game takes place in the period of World War II, when the war is at its peak. The initial stages of the game will captivate you and then take you towards a false victory all the while planning to punch you in the gut with its brutal reality.
The game will connect to you in more than one way, as every aspect of the game is well thought out of. The side characters will earn your trust in them and make you hate the antagonist nazis of the horrors committed against them, you will be compelled to take your time when killing a Nazi just because the backstory of the character that connects to the antagonist is so believable.
In all, If you are into First person Shooters, You should definitely play the resurrected version of the first of the first.
And if you haven’t played a first person shooter game till day, then what other better way to start, than by playing the revised version of the First, first person shooter ever.
Destiny is the word that has constricted or maybe guided humans all their life, depending on your perception.
Bungie Software and Activision’s new venture is named after the same mind bending and thought provoking concept.
Destiny, takes you in the shoes of the Guardian of the last safe city on earth.
According to the story, Earth at one time was undergoing its golden age, exploring and mapping the Universe.

Every Far Cry Game will put you in the shoes of an Uncanny Protagonist stuck in over his head, trying to get out. Upon which you will have to make choices in order to make your way through the game on the behalf of the protagonist.
The games are known for their vast maps, different missions and memorable characters. Every far cry game offered the best graphics of its time and Far Cry 4 for Xbox one is no different.
Th game revolves around the life of a character Ajay Ghale, returning to his birth country for the first time. The country is torn between Dictatorship rule and the Resistance. Ajay Ghale’s father, your father, was the head of the resistance movement.
