When it comes to polish in video games, Nintendo is the absolute king. The company will take one idea, such as the original Super Smash Bros., and continue to polish and tighten it with each iteration until it has the glisten of a diamond. While the original game was fun, each new iteration in the Smash Bros. franchise has continued to add new ideas, refine existing ones and strengthen the overall gameplay to a level where fans are left wondering “what else can Nintendo do?” Nintendo answers that question in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with two words: “A lot.”

Wolfenstein was one of the game's responsible for the first-person shooter, being responsible for spawning a genre that is still alive and kicking (not to mention extremely successful) in the current generation. One thing the original Wolfenstein was lacking was a plot, outside of the bare bones “kill all Nazis that you come across.” It's ironic then that over twenty years later the newest entry in the series, Wolfenstein: The New Order, would be praised for it's tightly woven narrative above all else. You'll come for the gunplay and the action, but stay for the interesting characters, inventive ideas and unique setting.
