Watch Dogs is an open world, third person shooter that has you playing as a highly skilled hacker, Aiden Pearce. The game features a great storyline with a wide variety of missions as you lead Aiden on a path of revenge against Chicago’s underworld.
What sets Watch Dogs apart from other open world games is the unique ability to “hack” your way through the city with your in-game phone. These skills come in handy in stealth and combat situations allowing you to create diversions within the environment to escape harm, for example you can hack traffic lights during a car chase to lose a pursuing enemy.
Multiplayer is also a lot of fun featuring various modes like car races, competitive decryption combat, and a mobile challenge.
The epic Assassin’s Creed saga continues with you battling back the Templars during the American Revolution. You play as Connor, an 18th century Assassin who must fight to protect his people and a young nation from an evil external influence that wishes to enslave humanity.
Gameplay features the parkour and stealth staples that players have come to know and love with enhancements that further streamline player movement. The game moves through various stages of Connor’s life which will have you exploring many different locales such as New York, Boston, Philadelphia and the American Colonial Frontier.
Assassin’s Creed III also features a deep multiplayer experience that pits you both solo and in teams to complete various objectives.
The first entry in the series, Dragon Age: Origins is a role playing game that has you battling back demonic forces known as “Darkspawn.” Based in the fictional kingdom of Ferelden your world is under siege and it’s up to you and your allies to save it.
The game has you choose between warrior, mage, rogue classes building your character for a final showdown with the Archdemon who leads the invasion into your world. If you enjoy deep stories, detailed lore and RPG action you’ll love the experiences that await you in Dragon Age.
