The holiday season is essentially in full swing, and for gamers that means a flood of fantastic and not-so-fantastic titles.
So we picked out a few games that you should add to your wishlist, ranging from the AAA blockbusters to the hidden gems.
A supernatural action/adventure in which you play as an assassin, Dishonored is one of the more unique titles to come out this year.
Combining supernatural powers with the steampunk city of Dunwall, the game sees you having to kill those responsible for the assassination of the Empress.
However, players are encouraged to be stealthy and kill as few people as possible, making for a pretty intense experience. [Review]
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
The latest in the blockbuster Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2 aims to revitalise the series, and it does a pretty great job of it.
Although the usual multiplayer suite and Zombies modes are on offer, the developers have also put a great amount of effort into the single-player campaign.
Featuring multiple endings and branching missions, the campaign mode is worth a look alone if you're looking for your next FPS fix.
Assassin's Creed 3
With its first release back in 2007, we were starting to feel weary of the series and its European roots. But Assassin's Creed 3 has changed all of that thanks to a brand new setting and a slew of new gameplay additions.
Whether you're trekking through 18th century New York or on the hunt for game in the wilderness, Assassin's Creed 3 breathes new life into the Ubisoft franchise.
The game is also the conclusion of current-day protagonist Desmond's story, making it a must-play for fans of the series.
A start of a new trilogy and made by Microsoft-owned 343 Industries, Halo 4 is a fantastic first game by the new developer.
Featuring the franchise's trademark sci-fi action and epic battles, Halo 4's campaign is a visually arresting thrill-ride. But the game doesn't end there, with the trademark multiplayer modes available as well.
Sure, Firefight mode may have been dropped, but players now have an even better option in the form of Spartan Ops, a standalone series of story-based missions. And the best part is that five new missions will be available each week for ten weeks after launch, free of charge. [Review]
A sequel to Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, this platformer makes use of real-world toy figures to generate in-game characters - a fun mechanic for young and old alike.
As with most platformers, there are a ton of collectibles in-game, while you can also purchase more real-world action figures for virtual use.
