Shhhh, people are sleeping. For those of us that know the best way to solve a problem is not brute force, or understand everyone doesn’t have to stop breathing for us to succeed, or even those who just like pretending they’re a sneaky sneaky snake, there are, of course, stealth games. A favourite genre for many, stealth games require as much skill as foreplanning and are not for those who want a game to roll over and play dead. Whether through ingenious AI, awesome abilities or just the sheer amount of choice of options you have at your fingertips, these are our best stealth games of this year.

Laptops come in all sizes, offering a dizzying amount of variety in performance and cost. This can sometimes leave the consumer lost. The nominees for the Best Laptop Award are those awesome gaming laptops that shine out across a sea of similar products. They will be laptops that push the gamer’s sweet spot by balancing cost and performance, flexibility and luxury, style and of course exceptional gaming experiences. They may have brilliant speakers or be bundled with lightning fast memory and a perfectly matched motherboard, possibly the top end mobile GPU for a mid-range price, but whatever these nominees have done to get our attention they represent the best in portable gaming, making it the exciting option it is today and for that we gamers salute them.

Gaming evolves rapidly and so do the monitors on which we view their gloriousness on. And as always, having a fantastic refresh rate is all well and good, but will my 64 inch 4k screen break my bank account? All is taken into account.
