    "If you love soccer than this is your game. You can play single or multiplayer, and you are in charge of your players. Decide how aggressive they need, with no touch dribbling you can control how much and when they touch the ball. What makes FIFA 16 really special is they have included all 12 top-ranked Women's National Teams. Are you ready for a match? "

    "Best games for Windows 8.1 is a rather odd category, but no matter which relatively recent version of Windows you're running, the Resident Evil series of games gets top marks on Steam. On the other hand, this is a horror game, and I don't pay for either horror movies or horror games. Life's too short to waste time like that!"

    "If you live in the USA, do not buy this game as it is not compatible being that it is a UK version. Aside from that, this is a very popular game with strong game play and plenty of action. As long as you purchase this game for use in your country, you won't be disappointed."

    "Candy Crush is an addicting enjoyable game for PC as well as mobile. I wouldnt call it one of the "best". I say this because Candy Crush Saga has too many ads, and most of your moves have to be purchased. Otherwise you have to wait till the next day to play. I recommend something else before this. "

    "I've never been a super big fan of the Gears of War franchise, and this far along it's definitely lost any of the charm it may have once had. The story is bland and there's nothing particularly cool about the gameplay."
