The Last of Us is an amazing game and I totally recommend it. It's terrifying, awesome, funny, and has an amazing story. Joel and Ellie have the coolest relationship I've ever seen between two video game characters :)
Unravel is a completely new kind of game from a big developer, sort of like little big planet but more realistic(from first glance). However the game consists of you running around as a little character exploring the world around it.
Campo Santo's Firewatch is probably one of the prettiest games that you can play. The simple but detailed scenery catches everyone's eyes. Ford even used a screen shot of the game for their advertisments.
