5/22/2016 - Game of the Year 2015
Posted in Unspecified



2015 was a huge year for your gaming community. It saw the true rise of huge open world experiences that deliver fantastic experiences, while also giving us smaller experiences worth the most hardcore gamer's attention. We've got some wonderful games this year along with a few stinkers and also this article is going to cover the whole thing. Before we begin I wish to let everyone understand that I did not play every game that was released this season, so if your favorite game does not get a nod, this is because I simply didn't play it. Three huge games I didnrrrt get to this year were Dying Light, Metal Gear Solid V, and a lot recently Just Cause 3. I additionally only own a PS4 and X-Box One, so PC exclusives will not be relevant to this article.


Let's get some disappointments taken care of. There were many games that were broken upon release or had some issues, while others were just a complete letdown. They're my 3 most disappointing games of 2015.

3. Evolve - Yes, Evolve became available early on in 2015 and it was a hugely anticipated game that desired to focus on cooperative play. It absolutely was very limited in modes, guns, characters, and maps. Making it easy put down the controller and move to the next game. I lost all curiosity about about a week and so did the rest of the world. It'll be interesting to see what are the developer will do by having an inevitable sequel.

2. Batman: Arkham Knight - Your fourth and 'final' entry in Rocksteady's superb action/adventure series would be a fun time in small doses, but ultimately failed at bringing Batman to the new generation in a way that blew expectations. It seemed like the sport was the first three all put together with better graphics and a lousy attempt at adding the batmobile. As the game is certainly not bad, it left a bunch to be desired.

1. Your order 1886 - One of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 games which was announced a couple in years past released with a whimper. The third person shooter period piece turned into the best looking game of the year that you barely played. The 4 hour experience was more of a cutscene with gameplay scattered in compared to other way around.

Now let us get to the best games of year!

10. Rocket League - It is a small game that left nowhere and I sunk unexpecting hours involved with it. It's a fun game to take a seat and play in long sessions or even in quick burst. It was a pleasure to play and is still fantastic a couple of months down the line.

9. Madden 16 - Okay, making this the guilty pleasure game in a way. I love football and that i love Madden. I take part in the franchise every single year and put in hundreds of hours involved with it. It was another step above it's predecessor and puts blocks for the next installment.

8. Halo 5 - The very first Halo on the new X-Box delivers a great experience with a fun single player and incredibly competitive multiplayer. Even though the actual story line is a little underwhelming, the gameplay is the best. Multiplayer is still going strong and i also find myself returning every couple of days to play a few matches.

7. The exorcist Battlefront - While I was obviously a little disappointed with the casualness of the game and lack of content, Battlefront is an absolute joy to try out. It's one of the best looking games I've ever seen and lays the floor for a better sequel.

6. Rainbow Six: Siege - Siege gave me my serious multiplayer itch that wasn't fulfilled from the mediocre Battlefield Hardline. It is extremely tactical and plays terrifically each match. It truly takes understanding the game to become good at it and that i can't love that enough.

5. Until Dawn - Maybe the biggest surprise of year, Sony didn't even know what they had with this game. It's a beautiful looking game that plays such as your run of the mill teen horror story, but with a great twist mid way through. The choices you make actually get a new game, REALLY.

4. Rise with the Tomb Raider - This sequel improves on the Tomb Raider reboot in most way and is only a breath of fresh air to play a somewhat linear story driven experience. Although The manufacturers should story was a bit better, it's a fun game nonetheless.

3. Fallout 4 - The fourth entry in this huge franchise didn't exist until about half a year ago when it was suddenly announced then released this November. It is a great game which is more of the same. Even though it looses it's steam about thirty hours in it, it's a hell of the experience that should be on everybody's shelf.

2. The Witcher 3 - Nature Hunt is an amazing game that does a bunch of things to varying levels of success. The combat and movement could be my biggest gripe with the game, but it's so easy to overlook when you have this colossal game with endless possibilities.

1. Bloodborne - Not only is Bloodborne my game of the year, it's also my biggest surprise of year. While I have played the souls games, Irrrve never really got into them, but Bloodborne completely captivated me. While it's story makes benefit it and it ultimately isn't relevant, it's the gameplay that kept me coming back to the game. I couldn't stop thinking and playing the bingo. It's the perfect challenge and If your open to different varieties of games, I would 100% recommend picking up Bloodborne.
