Hearthstone

It's hard to imagine that a tiny free-to-play digital card game could be so accessible, addictive, and thoroughly satisfying to play. Nice work, Blizzard.

Destiny

Simultaneously the best and worst game of the year. The game that I complain most about, yet also the game I'll keep playing the most through 2015. I'm playing it right now.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

Layton's best adventure... and, sadly, his last. I could keep playing these games every year until the end of time.

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Would've been nice if there were fewer moments ripped directly from the show—and I could've done without the glitches—but this game is just straight-up candy for fans of South Park and RPGs. I am both.

Persona Q

Resource management games are great. Persona is great. This game is great. Punishing, but great.

Shovel Knight

The game Capcom would make if they actually knew what they were doing.

Bravely Default

Even a terrible ending sequence can't ruin 20 hours of amazing old-school JRPG action.
