Fallout 4 delivers exactly what everyone has been holding out years for, plus so much more. It is a game with multiple layers to discover, and thousands of ways to decide how to purse quests. It is a game designed with the player in mind and how we want to go about discovering this crazy, viscous, new land.
For those looking for a unique and unexplored side to war in a slow, gruelingly unforgiving setting, this game is perfect. It will take several tries to get it right, but the truth behind it is there really is no "right" way to survive in war.
Halo 5: Guardians proves that 343 Industries are up for the challenge. With solid combat, weapons, worlds and a killer story, the only thing needing more attention is multiplayer.

Quantum Break makes some amazing innovations in the gaming industry with the live-action TV show, unique and original powers and abilities, and beautifully designed set pieces and the levels built around them.

However, it's still worth the ride.
Hitman's season premiere is a nice opening act that's centers around a luxurious world that feels authentic. If you can overlook the stagnant, often useless AI and enjoy the real fun of figuring out how to get to the kill, you'll have a great time.
