We've reached the tipping point into the holiday season, so it's time to start dropping gift hints for games and consoles. That might be a necessity if you're flat broke from buying some of September's standout games. Besides our picks for the Game of the Month winner and runner-up, there was plenty to like over the past month. Those looking to stray from the norm will find a lot to love in Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Soma, and Blood Bowl, while kids of all ages can continue feeding their 'game-compatible collectibles' addiction with Skylanders Superchargers and Lego Dimensions (though they might be better off sticking to amiibo).
At the end of each month, we look back at the standout games that demand your attention above the rest of the year's releases thus far. That way, you know what to prioritize before you're caught up by all the other amazing new games in 2015. So, without further ado, here's what you should be playing right now to tide you over until next month.
