Curious to know what game you should be playing first on your PlayStation 4? Or perhaps you would like to know how Call of Duty: Ghosts fared in spite of local gamers raging about their dissaproval of the title. At a stage, Battlefield 4 was almost unplayable on PC - but did fans still buy the game?

So FIFA 14 is the game to play on next-gen, in spite of its bad rep, Call of Duty: Ghosts was still a favorite of PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC gamers, in spite of being almost unplayable on PC, Battlefield 4 was the king of PC games in December and it seems the underdogs have a fancy for Mario games.
