Best Video Games 2013: Here's What You Have To Play This Christmas

Christmas 2013 is all about love, family, hope... and video games.

Not only do we get the release of two new consoles (in the Xbox One and PS4), and the rebirth of last year's Wii U, we also have a ton of great games out for the consoles you already own.

There's something for everyone - from Mario's latest 3D outing to piracy on the high seas with Assassin's Creed, capitalistic animal care with Zoo Tycoon and - of course - the latest Pokemon.

So whether you're a hardcore single-player gamer, a casual tinkerer or a family with an over-developed sense of competitive rivalry, there's definitely something new and exciting out for you this year.

Here are our picks of the best games out this Christmas for all of the big consoles. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments.
