Game of the Year 2015

2015 was obviously a huge year for the gaming community. It saw the real rise of huge open world experiences that deliver fantastic experiences, as well as giving us smaller experiences worth perhaps 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 would like to let everyone understand that I did not play all the games that was released this season, so if your favorite game isn't getting a nod, this is because I simply didn't listen to 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 also only own a PS4 and X-Box One, so PC exclusives defintely won't be relevant to this article.

Let us get some disappointments dealt with. There were many games that have been broken upon release or had some issues, although some were just a complete letdown. They are my 3 most disappointing games of 2015.

3. Evolve - Yes, Evolve came out early on in 2015 and was a hugely anticipated game that wished to focus on cooperative play. It had been 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 therefore did the rest of the world. It will likely be interesting to see what 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 obviously a fun time in small doses, but ultimately failed at bringing Batman towards the new generation in a manner that blew expectations. It seemed like the overall game was the first three all come up with with better graphics along with a lousy attempt at adding the batmobile. While 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 years back released with a whimper. The 3rd person shooter period piece became the best looking game of the year that you barely played. The four hour experience was much more of a cutscene with gameplay scattered in compared to the other way around.

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

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

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

8. Halo 5 - The initial Halo on the new X-Box provides a great experience with an exciting single player and incredibly competitive multiplayer. As the actual story line is a bit underwhelming, the gameplay is second to none. Multiplayer is still going strong and that 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 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 by the mediocre Battlefield Hardline. It is extremely tactical and plays terrifically each match. It genuinely takes understanding the game being good at it and i also can't love that enough.

5. Until Dawn - Most likely the biggest surprise of the season, Sony didn't have any idea what they had with this particular 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 selections you make actually modify the game, REALLY.

4. Rise of the Tomb Raider - This sequel improves on the Tomb Raider reboot in each and every way and is merely a breath of outdoors 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 - Your fourth entry in this huge franchise didn't exist until about half a year ago when it was suddenly announced after which released this November. It's a great game that is more of the same. Though it looses it's steam about thirty hours involved with it, it's a hell of an experience that should be on everybody's shelf.

2. The Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt is an amazing game that will a bunch of things to varying degrees of success. The combat and movement could be my biggest gripe from 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 sport of the year, it's also my biggest surprise of the season. While I have literally souls games, Irrrve never really got into them, but Bloodborne completely captivated me. While it's story makes work for it and it ultimately isn't relevant, it is the gameplay that kept me returning to the game. I couldn't stop thinking and playing this game. It's the perfect challenge and If your open to different varieties of games, I would 100% recommend obtaining Bloodborne.
