Game of the Year 2015

2015 was obviously a huge year for that gaming community. It saw the actual rise of huge open world experiences that deliver fantastic experiences, while also giving us smaller experiences worth the most hardcore gamer's attention. We have got some wonderful games this year along with a few stinkers and also this article is going to cover everything. Before we begin I wish to let everyone know that I did not play every game that was released this coming year, so if your favorite game doesn't get a nod, it is because I simply didn't play it. Three huge games I did not get to this year were Dying Light, Metal Gear Solid V, and most 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 us get some disappointments out of the way. There were many games that were broken upon release or had some issues, although some were just a complete letdown. They're my 3 most disappointing games of 2015.

3. Evolve - Yes, Evolve came out 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. Which made it easy put down the controller and move to the next game. I lost all fascination with about a week and thus 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 - The fourth and 'final' entry in Rocksteady's superb action/adventure series was a fun time in small doses, but ultimately failed at bringing Batman towards the new generation in a fashion that blew expectations. It seemed like the game was the first three all assembled with better graphics plus a lousy attempt at adding the batmobile. As the game is certainly not bad, it made a bunch to be desired.

1. The Order 1886 - One of the very anticipated PlayStation 4 games that was announced a couple in years past released with a whimper. The 3rd person shooter period piece turned into the best looking sport of the year that you barely played. The 4 hour experience was really a cutscene with gameplay scattered in than the other way around.

Now why don't we get to the best games of the year!

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

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

8. Halo 5 - The initial Halo on the new X-Box delivers a great experience with an exciting single player and incredibly competitive multiplayer. Even though the actual story line is a little underwhelming, the gameplay is first rate. Multiplayer is still going strong and I find myself returning every day or two to play a few matches.

7. The exorcist Battlefront - While I was a little disappointed using the casualness of the game and lack of content, Battlefront is an absolute joy to experience. It's one of the best looking games That i've ever seen and lays the bottom for a better sequel.

6. Rainbow Six: Siege - Siege provided me with my serious multiplayer itch that wasn't fulfilled by the mediocre Battlefield Hardline. It is rather tactical and plays terrifically each match. This process takes understanding the game to be good at it and i also can't love that enough.

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

4. Rise with the Tomb Raider - This sequel improves around the Tomb Raider reboot in each and every way and is just a breath of outdoors to play a somewhat linear story driven experience. Although I wish the story was a bit better, it is a fun game nonetheless.

3. Fallout 4 - Your fourth entry in this huge franchise didn't exist until about six months ago when it was suddenly announced and then released this November. It's really a great game which is more of the same. Even though it looses it's steam about thirty hours into 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 will be my biggest gripe of the game, but it's really easy to overlook when you have this colossal game with endless possibilities.

1. Bloodborne - Not merely is Bloodborne my game of the year, it's also my biggest surprise of the season. While I have literally souls games, I never really got into them, but Bloodborne completely captivated me. While it's story makes benefit it and it ultimately isn't relevant, oahu is the gameplay that kept me returning 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.
