The 10 Best (and 2 Worst) Video Games of 2015

1 Comment

2015 was an odd year in gaming for me. I finished only one current-year AAA release, Batman: Arkham Knight, because most of them – Mad MaxFallout 4Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIBattlefield Hardline – simply didn’t interest me. I spent a lot of time playing major releases from previous years, such as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Dead Space, and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. However, I did play a crapload of smaller titles and indie releases, and that’s why my top 10 is composed entirely of them.

There were two current-year games that I started in 2015 but didn’t finish in time for inclusion on this list: Pillars of Eternity and Tales of Zestiria. I found the former immensely frustrating, and I don’t know if I’ll have the patience to go back to it in 2016. As for the latter, based on what I’ve played, I think it would have missed my top 10, but not by much. It’s probably the 13th or 14th best game of the year.

There were fewer games I loved this year than last, but also fewer games I hated. That’s why I’m only doing a bottom 2 this year instead of a bottom 5. And boy, I hated that bottom two.

But before we get to the worst games of the year, let’s talk about the best. I’m not doing honourable mentions this year, because there are far too many. Instead, I’ve included a list of the current-year games I played in 2015, where you can see my full ranking. You can find that list at this link.

Now, on to the list! More
