Ubisoft is an interesting developer. They are one of the most hit or miss triple A developers and their failures often overshadows the great games they produce. Far Cry is one of their triple A titles that hasn’t been run into the ground nor has it over promised and under delivered. It has been nearly a year since it was released and is a cheaper title to get but is Far Cry 4 something worth adding to your collection?

Can this unestablished team give us a game we deserve?
It has been far too long since Naughty Dog has given us a game that wasn’t Uncharted. However great the Uncharted series was, it has yet to be seen if they can create magic again.

In an industry where singleplayer games are becoming financially riskier to make, does The Last of Us have what it takes to endure and survive?
