Best Video Games of 2015

The Top Ten
1 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Product Image

This game is absolutely incredible! The developers obviously put an immense amount of effort into creating such a deep and rich world for the player. The story is an emotional journey that's not all about killing monsters, but also about the relationships and bonds you form along your journey to save the world. The combat allows for many variations of combat that the player can choose from; whether you choose to use alchemy or magic to destroy your foes, or you prefer the classic silver sword (heck, why not all three?! ). Speaking of abilities, the developers also did an incredible job to not only make all the abilities given to you useful throughout the entire game, but they also make sure that they make the abilities balanced so that the player can choose any battle tactics they desire and they will work. During and after the story, there are so many kingdoms, forests, castles, dungeons, oceans, caves, towers, and other hidden gems to explore in this vast game. Whether you choose to ...more

This game should be at #2 but its at a fair spot seeing that most people missed it with not being a AAA title. This game had so much great stuff going for it. The story is phenomenal. The characters are amazing and pretty likeable for the most part. Geralt is such an amazing character to play as. The way you are able to choose how you want him to act was a great mechanic. Gives you more incentive to play again and make differemt choices. The combat, while hard to handle at first becomes fun as hell as you level up. The graphics are what make this game what it is. The three areas are all BEAUTIFUL and are able to set themselves apart from each other. The day/night transitions are a thing to behold and don't even get me started on the sunsets. There is just so much to see and do, as there are TONS of side quests and secrets to find as well as the monster battles which are another highlight. I'm only about 30 hours in and I already feel this is one of the deepest RPG's I've ever played.

This game is #1. It's already considered to be the greatest RPG in history. And many fans are already claiming to be the greatest video game in history! It is perhaps the largest game ever made.. Or the largest in recent years - easily 30% longer than Skyrim.. And the longest, most fun story filled game this year with non stop action! Developers said it takes 50-100 hours to complete.. Which turned out to be on average 250 hours for many gamers to complete. I went about 400 hours! The graphics are beautiful. The side stories fit very well with the overall tone of the game. The musical score and composition is bar none - this game has everything... emotion, beautifully developed characters, plots, sub-plots, action, the list goes on and on...
had recently beat Bloodbourne before I played TW3.. So I wasn't holding out a lot of hope for it being that I thought From Softwares BB developed a very good game... Knowing the dynamics of story and game play would differ greatly I wanted to ...more

The best game I've ever played. The story is immersive and interesting, the lore of the world is really detailed and deep, the characters are all fantastic, and player choice actually impacts the game. From the opening cut-scene, the game had me hooked. The side quests are better than most full games. A lot of people will tell you the combat is bad, but I whole-heartily disagree. I think the combat is serviceable at worst, and intricate and best. It requires you to research your opponents, brew potions, use spells, dodge, parry, and attack. The game has so much stuff to do. You can't get bored with it, as there is 200 hours of content with loads of great quests. The DLCs themselves are better than most games, and Blood and Wine contains 30 hours of gameplay-more than most triple A titles today. All the characters are well developed, and every emotional beat feels earned and impactful. The graphics are great, and look like they could have been made in 2020. Dialogue feels natural. AND, ...more

2 Fallout 4 Fallout 4 Product Image

Fallout 4 was crap so when I heard that Fallout 4 came out I wasn't too excited but than my friends introduced me to it and made me get it. Honestly that was one of the greatest choices I ever made. I'm in love with Skyrim so when I played this, maybe even a better version of Skyrim, it was like a dream come true for me. Also, in most games you might get bored by the story line, well in this game the story line is exciting and you can do side missions instead if you want a change. The makers put loads of detail into it that the mediocre graphics makes no difference when you see the games beautiful landscape. Anyone who doesn't like this needs to hugely reconsider as I think this is the best game of 2015.

Fallout 4 is the best video game of 2015, if not the best game in next-gen yet, and one of the best games of all time. It might not have the most gorgeous graphics out there, nor the most refined game-play, or even an amazing story, but everything in it makes sense, and fits in perfectly. It improves over nearly every aspect of Fallout 3, as well as Skyrim, and offer the best, most intriguing, an exceptional story of them all, especially that turning point after the Molecular Level where everything we thought we knew about the Institute just blew up on our face. Its characters are distinct and well done, and its world is without a doubt Bethesda's most ambitious, from the masterly done Glowing Sea, to the southern grey swamps of Boston, to the ravaged buildings of Boston (probably the most ugly buildings Bethesda has ever done in all honesty). Over that, Fallout 4 has the best side quests out of any rpg out there period surpassing even those of Fallout 3 and the Witcher 3, and passing ...more

I honestly did not like this game that much. I found the rpg elements to be too lazy compared to what Fallout 1 and 2 were. The dialogue was focused more on cinema and voice acting rather than the dialogue itself. I immediately lost hopes of this game when there were options such as "Sarcastic."

The worst part of all was that you have limited player freedom. You do not have the choice to be an antagonist. There is no in depth quest for different choices or actions as you, the main character. If there are any, they are trash compared to the most generic option. No, this game is not like Skyrim, in which you have a variety of choices that effects your quest and position as the character.

Another choice that Bethesda made that I disapproved of was the removal of the karma system. Although many people who played 3 and New Vegas probably found the system pointless. I somewhat enjoyed the idea that characters would love/hate you or give different rewards depending on your ...more

People just love to hate on #1. Anyone claiming 1 & 2 were the best, is retarded. Don't think the graphics are amazing enough? Play it on a gaming PC with the highest graphic settings, then realize what you've been missing. I don't understand why everyone likes V.A.T.S. so much. I thoroughly beat the hell out of 3 and New Vegas both, only using it a handful of times when absolutely necessary, like shooting antennae off of ants. It's like cheating, and you don't need it if you're any good. My biggest complaints about 3 and Vegas was just having to switch outfits so often, and mostly shuffling around the endless belongings between you, party members, and storage areas because of clutter and weight/strength restrictions. With needing so many different items to build and cook with, it was endlessly tedious. It made me miss magical bottomless bags in fantasy RPGs. I do wish they would incorporate more new creatures though, you get sick of the same old. There's really endless mutations you ...more

3 Batman: Arkham Knight Batman: Arkham Knight Product Image

Best video game in superhero genre hands down. It beats city in story, it beats asylum in atmosphere, and it beats origins in open world. It is perfection

This game is awesome... and some what disappointing

Pros -
1. Story
2. Graphics
3. Gameplay
4. Controls
5. Stealth combat
6. Side missions (for the most part)
7. Acting

Cons -
1. The Arkham Knight's identity
2. Over reliance on the Batmobile (I think adding it into the game was a good decision, but they relied on it to much), which leads to another problem
3. Bad boss fights. Instead of something interesting, they just have you fight tanks

Overall, I recommend it if, particularly you're a Batman fan, but there are some downsides which might take away from the experience

Voted for Super Mario Maker because it's better you plebs.

The non-canon Arkhamverse might just be the best thing that's ever happened to Batman (besides the abomination that was Origins). Arkham Asylum and Arkham City could probably sit comfortably on a best-of-all-time list, with Arkham City possibly being my favorite game of all time.

Arkham Knight, the final installment, is a bizarre one. The first one rated M, the first one with the Batmobile, and yet the first that has some issues. It's an amazing game. The story's awesome, the dialogue is priceless, Batman's fear hallucination's are ingenious, and the Batmobile is awesome and overpowered in ways that don't make gliding irrelevant.

However, I do have my gripes. The Arkham Knight is a badass, but his identity was just so... copout. It would be awesome if it was a new villain or something but he isn't. And also, the tank battles are... kind of overdone. You spend more time blowing up automated tanks and ...more

I still prefer Arkham Asylum for it's visual design and being the first of the series, but this comes close second. Batmobile, flying, combat and pretty much everything feel flowy and awesome. It could have been more focused and there should have been more trippy scare crow levels but it's still a game that feels awesome.

4 Mortal Kombat X

Best game of 2015?...Maybe; maybe not. But I voted for it just because of how great the graphics are! The characters' eyes look rather funny, but on the whole the graphics for this game are superb. The redesigns on Kitana, Scorpion and Mileena are good too.

Mortal Kombat 9 was great but this one is even BETTER! Seriously, it has much smarter reasons for fights, it has a great graphics and story. All characters are interesting, even new chars are great

This game mimics mk2 in the aspect of its more strategy then button mashing and this game is frustrating in an awesome way really challenging
You.Mk2 updated to new Gen and its
Absolutely Amazing.

Really improved the fighting from Mortal Kombat 9. The action is faster and the X-Rays and Fatalities are shockingly amazing.

5 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Product Image

My number one choice. When it comes to gameplay, I think it's my favorite Metal Gear game. It keeps it's signature humour also and the story is great, too bad the planned ending didn't happen but what can you do.

This is not just my favourite game of 2015 but of all time. You are the game, the game revolves around you and the choices you make as the boss. The freedom, the leveling up, the unexpecting twist or mystic turn that might unfold, your ability to customise so much of yourself and your armory. I was so used to having the odd shooter where you just killed of any enemy in sight. My decisions totally changed when I learned that you can be a hero and spare their lives and you fulton them to your base and they are your soldiers. The perfect game, graphics, design, story oh my God the story, and characters. Just perfect

I had a hard time deciding between this game and Undertale but I have to give the award of best game of 2015 to this game. I love the way the gameplay mechanics worked together and the organic nature of the open-ended missions that allowed us to create our own memorable experiences, without being punished for deviating from stealth. Only downside is the overarching storyline lacks focus but this is truly a gameplay marvel, rewarding intelligence and creativity in a way few games do.

"It was not the game I expected, but I loved it anyway. The story sucks, but for the first time in the series, that isn't a big deal. This is not a movie-game hybrid like the others. This is a straight up video game. Phantom Pain offers up this enormous sandbox with every imaginable tool at your disposal. I've never seen a game give the player this much freedom and control of how they want to approach it. You can impersonate a woman. You can shoot your hand off. You can rescue animals and make a zoo. You can plant C-4 on a dude's butt, wait for him to get in a helicopter, and blow it out of the air. You can do this (proceeds to place two decoys of Venom Snake on a metal gear and rides it around Afghanistan). Out of all the spectacular games on my list this year Metal Gear Five is the only one that feels like a true, next gen expirence.

6 Bloodborne Bloodborne Product Image

How is Fallout 4 above this? Fallout 4 was good, but dumped down and kinda boring at times. I was NEVER bored in Bloodborne! You're always on your toes trying to defeat your foe(s) without dying and losing 40,000 blood echoes. The DLC was great with new weapons areas and story. The lore is fascinating and engaging! This game had the best bosses from any game all year along with Undertale! They're isn't a crap ton of weapons but the ones that are there are unique, useful and none of them are useless! They all have they're strengths and weaknesses and is better than Skyrim's 'Do I choose that slow 20 damage axe or this quick 60 damage Swords with fire magic' (I do really like Skyrim by the way).
It's the best PS4 exclusive and my favourite game of all time! GOTY!

This game is awesome, it doesn't hold your hand: it beats you. It wants you learn, to act quickly and to calculate the risk of you actions whether you should be fast and furious or calm and secure. It's challenging, I do understand some people might not like but if you own a ps4 you have at the very least to try eat.Moreover the satisfaction you feel when you defeat a boss has no equal and the setting, the details and the art direction is superb.However this game has also issues 1st version had a long loading time,the frame rate in some places drops under 30fps, many say the camera is not good (I personally like it) the illumination is horrible the moon texture could have been done better. The story is whispered through the game you must have good insight to reveal it... I hope you agree.

Addictive, gorgeous, coated in deliciously twisted Lovecraftian horror, surprisingly fair for the reputation From Software's games get, possessing a rich and deep lore ripe for theories and investigation, the first AAA title for the PS4 that actually delivered and with hours of optional content, what's not to love? If you haven't played it yet, I recommend you get on that right away!

Amazing story, beautifully poetic environment, innovative yet simple combat (and weapons) that reflects the theme of the story, amazing level and enemy design, and I can continue jerking this game off but to me it all boils down to Lady Maria. I know it's DLC, but she is, in my opinion, literally the best boss in all of gaming.

7 Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker Product Image

After nearly a decade of Super Mario side scrollers being way too easy with the New Super Mario Bros. games, Mario Maker is the side scrolling Mario game I have spent my whole life waiting for. It brings the most challenging levels to ever grace a Mario game and features the gameplay of some of the franchise's greatest titles. I hope Nintendo sees that most of these fan created levels are insanely difficult and realize that it is what is needed to bring new life to the series. If anything, they better ramp up the difficulty on the next Mario side scroller because by the time it comes out for the NX, Mario Maker will have already turned us into pros.

There are just so many possibilities here. This game definitely had room for improvement, and guess what? They've delivered - with additions that don't just fix problems (which the game didn't have a lot of to start with, just a lot of features that would be nice, many of which have been and may continue to be added), but add new possibilities for creative level designs that keep me coming back day after day for more.

Only one game on the list by Nintendo? Nonsense! Nintendo is the best gameing company ever so surprised! I agree with the other comments I can't believe no one thought of this before! Great idea! Mario Maker is here to stay! I mean an update came out not to long ago and it was awesome! This gets updated very fast and when it does its awesome or cool. But I say this has only one problem. The skull raft is not even a skull raft it's a lolololololololololol raft?!?!? //?! /?! /?

This game has nearly ENDLESS possibility's! This should be higher, I don't get why people hate Nintendo games. A lot of other games above this are shooter games, and I HATE them! It's just hold A, move. No other things to do, it's just murder-fests. I see no difference in them and, for example, Asteroids! This game has flaws, like the search codes. But there are more pros then cons. An overall amazing game that should be higher.

8 Undertale Undertale Product Image

Nobody knows how or why it became popular.
Nobody knows how or why it had to become popular.
Nobody knows how or why it had to attract these PewDiePie-loving kids who would ruin everyone's first impression of the game.
If you're reading this and you haven't played Undertale, hear my plea.

Would you like to play a funny, quirky game that subtly destroys anything separating our reality from its own? If you would, then please play it. Right now. Don't talk to anyone about it first. They'll either change your mind or spoil the experience. Ignore the fanbase, and ignore the haters. Ignore the videos about it and such. Don't let anyone influence your way of playing the game. Yes, there are multiple ways to play it. Everyone will try to convince you of playing in a particular way. Don't listen to them. Avoid the fans, and play the game YOURSELF. When you're done- or rather, when you want to be done- you can talk to someone about it. I know this sounds silly, but trust me, ...more

This game was honestly the best game I've ever played. It's funny and emotional in a way that simply can't be recreated. The plot was full of twists and turns, and the attention to detail really surprised me. I loved finding all of the little Easter eggs and references. The characters are all so diverse different in personality. Not to mention the soundtrack, which is absolute fire if I do say so myself. And depending on what you choose to do with this little Underground realm, it gives you more than just a single expected ending. But be careful when playing, because even the littlest amount of EXP gained can come back to bite you. In True Pacifist, my favorite ending, it gets really heartfelt and emotional by the time you reach the final boss. It's feels-wracking, it's witty where it counts, and it's stocked with cool things to discover. And it's only ten dollars. Yup. All this for just ten bucks. Buying it was probably the best choice I've ever made on the Internet. So long story ...more

Though I can't endorse the fandom or the hype, Undertale itself is definitely worth a play. The gameplay is challenging, yet oddly compelling. The characters are all interesting (not necessarily likeable), and the game is fun. It is an trope-filled RPG, full of so much ridiculousness and frustration, that doesn't masquerade as anything else. I wouldn't call it GotY, but it is so unlike any other game, that it deserves a spot on the list. The elements of the story are absolutely amazing, and the MERCY system is something that made the game more lovable. You can't take Undertale seriously, yet it has an element of seriousness about it. It's a good time, and unique enough to deserve a vote.

Absolutely amazing. I can't believe how clever Toby Fox is. With so many Easter eggs, even ones for hacking, and being able to sneak in evidence for theories, his cleverness makes it so much better. The game delivers a somewhat Legend of Zelda plus Earthbound vibe. The story of it is cute, hilarious and sometimes tear delivering/tear worthy. The music is worth a mention considering some was made before the game and reusing it exposes it more. The music can be very calming or upbeat and fun.

The characters in the game have very interesting personalities and are well designed. What's nice is that many of these characters are ones you can relate to very much, or people you're friends with.

The best part to me in this game is the fact you can communicate with the enemies and not kill them, unlike many rpg games. This aids in the different endings. The routes are genocide (my favourite), neutral, and pacifist. Depending on which routes you do first in which order, you're ...more

9 Call of Duty: Black Ops III Call of Duty: Black Ops III Product Image

Wow... a bunch of hipsters had to vote this game so low and hate on it and its fans because they think it's cool to do that. Get your heads out of your butts, people! Two weeks into this game and I have to say, this game has offered the most content in a Call of Duty game ever, it's also a really fun and enjoyable experience. In my opinion, the story is the weakest out of all of the Black Ops entries but is still very enjoyable, some would even say "the most ambitious Call of Duty campaign ever" but not me, Zombies mode is epic, the new mode, Free Run, is very fresh and exciting, and the Multiplayer is phenomenal, so much variety and so much to do, the maps are pretty good too. Overall, a really fun game.

This is my personal favorite Call of Duty game. But, in my defense, I am a zombies player. People who dislike the zombies most likely enjoy the less complicated maps, which I respect. But, if you love managing multiple things, amazing gameplay, one of the best stories I've ever played, or even just shooting zombies, everything in this game delivers.
Now, the campaign. Everything after BO2 has been absolute trash. This one doesn't feel like the stakes are high, which I do in fact hate.
The multiplayer is kinda fun. Not my personal favorite (BO2 or BO1), but I still have an enjoyable time playing multiplayer.
If you do not enjoy this game, I completely understand. Especially if you're not a zombies player.

OK, this game is admittedly fun, I can say that much. But at THIS point, these games should be REVOLUTIONARY. These games are still enjoyable, and anyone I know can pick up one of these games and play it for a while. But all this "step forward" crap needs to stop. This game is exactly what they've always been: a watered-down shooter with simple gameplay, a campaign that has as much effort put into it as the microwave burrito you made for lunch, and an online mode which is the only thing worth playing, if you can stand the cancerous fans of this franchise.
This franchise's success is still a mystery to me. Yes, maybe entertaining YouTubers played these games, but that alone doesn't explain why they make millions of sales every year. All of the Call of Duty games focus more on how they look than the experience you get, and I want a game WORTH $50-$60.

This is by FAR my favorite Call of duty game ever made! I am absolutely in love with the new movement mechanics! the campaign could be better, but then again not many people get Call of Duty for the campaign. The new multiplayer is amazing! I love the specialists and how you can choose them. another great new feature is free run. This is an obstacle course based off the Wall-Running, Boost jumping, and power sliding. The graphics are amazing, unless you are playing on an Xbox 360 or a Playstation 3. The zombies mode is just as fun as the others, where this game features a zombies campaign, which is also named "Nightmares". No matter how you play, Black Ops 3 will blow you away!

10 Just Cause 3 Just Cause 3 Product Image

A SEVERELY underrated game

This game will tie "Game of the Year" with Fallout 4

One of the best open world games ever made. It favors FREEDOM, creativity, and epic action packed gameplay and explosions, you will NEVER be bored of this game with all the things to do in this fictional open world game based on taking down military dictatorships in beautiful exotic countries.

How can you not love a game whose only purpose is to be a fun game. You can go in guns blazing and destroy everything, or you can try to be subtle (good luck with that).

It is a very fun sandbox that unlocks each thing at the right pace so you don't get bored. Also, it has Weeping Angels in one area.

I know that this game hasn't come out yet, but all the gameplay footage so far just points to the fact that this game is going to be really, really fun. Just Cause isn't made for difficult gameplay, it's just a game where you can blow everything up. And that is what makes it great.

Okay so maybe the frame rate can be a bit choppy and its low on overall content, but a video game should be about fun, and no game I have ever played has had me having as much pure fun as this does. Takes its predecessor and improves almost every detail. My game of the year.

The Contenders
11 Life is Strange Life is Strange Product Image

It may have not been graphically the best or had the best action sequences. But no game since The Last of Us has left such an impact on myself and millions of other players. The music is among the best I've ever heard in a game. The plot twists and the compelling characters that you form a relationship with become actual friends to you. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it gave me a life lesson to not take things for granted because I don't have a rewind. I need to make everything count. Yes it's only a game, but it will change you and your view on how games are made forever.

You want to cry. We got it. You want one of the best indie soundtrack and score ever heard in a video game? We got it. You want a compelling story that twists and turns every which way? We got it. You want so much character development that nearly every character isn't an "every man" or "Mary-Sue"? We got that too. You want some of the prettiest graphics of the year? We got that. You want some of the most depressing scenes in video game history? You bet your sweet ass you got that. There has never been anything else like this.

I'd like to consider this a deconstruction. If you don't know what that is, it takes old tropes, and then turns them on their head. LiS is a very good example of this. It starts out as a typical teen drama game, and then blows itself out of the water. Why this is losing to Fallout 4 and Mortal Kombat, I have no clue. You will be sobbing by the end, and for that alone, I give this game 10/10. Buy it. You won't regret it.

Honestly, I can't think of a better game than this (of this genre). It has mystery, sadness, intrigue, suspense, romance (and not too much, either), super powers, teen angst, forgiveness, madness, and a compelling story that hits you hard. Not to mention the conveniently placed cliffhangers, too. This game is great, and I think it would actually help people see the world in a different perspective.

12 Rocket League Rocket League Product Image

Awesome! Really innovative, has a great formula for replayability.
Difficulty: 7/10. I liked the level of difficulty to master it, but too hard to get into.
Graphics: 9/10. I really like the animation style or some reason.
Soundtrack: 9/10. Cool lobby music and sound effects. No in-game music, though.
Replayability/lasting appeal: 10/10. Really addictive, rounds are 5 minutes unless forfeit or overtime and you'll want to play lots and lots of rounds to try and improve.
Gameplay: 10/10. So original, great set of modes, and just really well-designed.
Overall rating: 9.5 Pros: Original, well designed modes, getting you to want to play lots and lots of rather long rounds to improve. The appeal is the same in your 1st round and your 50th, takes right amount of time to master, cool sound and lobby music, great animation style.
Cons: Too difficult to get into, graphics and sound were slightly less than perfect, no in-game music. (not a huge flaw)

Ya so awesome! by 2018 it sold over 40 million copies, a half bad game can't do that! Very good, cool noises, good-looking, lots of customization options, many different modes, and hours of fun to be had!

A cool way to bring football to those who don't care about it in the slightest. The game is appealing and thrilling to play, whether you play football or not. Always fun to play with friends.
8/10

This should definitely be in the Top 10. Although not that new of a concept, it has about the best customization and game play I've seen in a game.

13 Star Wars Battlefront Star Wars Battlefront Product Image

This sub par cabs grab certainly doesn't deserve to be in the top 20 of this list. I think the worst part about this game is that there was already a perfect model that EA could have used to make the game complete and satisfying, yet they still ignored all of the ALREADY EXISTING content from previous Battlefront games that people loved. This was nothing more than a lazy cash grab that doesn't even have good multiplayer (the one real mode this game has). There is horrible inconsistency with weapon damage and accuracy. The servers are excruciatingly slow at times. The new hero and villain characters are ridiculously OP. And last but not least, the game is just downright boring. I wanted to love this game, I really did. I've always been a huge Star Wars fan and a (at the time) next gen Star Wars game was the coolest thing ever. Sadly myself, and many other Star Wars fans, were left disappointed by this sorry excuse for a game.

I agree with the person below me on the graphics and sound design: they were phenomenal. I enjoyed the iconic dogfights, blasters, and all the characters, but looking at it from purely how it fared as a game...I don't find it spectacular. It's great for giving fans something to relate the movies to, but as a game the lack of single player and repetitiveness makes it something that would just be taken out of the case every once in a while. Not a game that would keep me entertained for a long duration of time.

I have played the battlefront games since I was 4. Started off with the first one, when there were maps like Bespin and the time when the engineer class had an arc caster. Then the second one came. Better mechanics, better graphics, new classes and they even added 2 more game modes: Campaign and Galactic Conquest. And... We then got to number three... Best game of 2015... Battle of Jakku - Amazing, and that's just a DLC for FREE! Nothing else to explain about this game...

If this were a standalone game it would be fine. But this cash grab by EA pales in comparison to the first two Star Wars Batllefront games. Aside from the fact that the game costs $110 to unlock all of the features it has to offer, even then there are still fewer things you can do than the other game. Galactic Conquests? Instant Action? Proper Space Battles? I'd take a remastered Battlefront 2 over this any day.

14 Dragon Ball Xenoverse Dragon Ball Xenoverse Product Image

Pretty solid fighter. It's got a ton of abilities, you can customize your own character, and there's a pretty good twist to the story. There's a few problems, though:
*Almost every boss has super armor, which makes them immune to stagger and take less damage. I wouldn't mind this with insanely powerful beings like Beerus or Broly, but the super armor is a little ridiculous
*Quite a few difficulty spikes and canyons.
*Super Saiyans are absolutely OP.

This game needs to be higher! after over a decade of attempts, Xenoverse perfectly encapsulates what it would be like to play as a DBZ fighter in a game. Plus the original story and villain is a fresh change from just rehashing the same story as the show, I pre ordered the sequel on pure faith because of how good this game was.

Definitely a good game for the series of DBZ games. I hate generic fighters but always wanted DBZ to be somewhat an RPG type of game. I hope they move forward and continue to make this game better!

One of the BEST DBZ games ever, aside form Budokai 3 and Budokai Tenkaichi 3 of course. And at least these games aren't so repetitive like some other game. *cough cough* Call of Duty,

15 Halo 5: Guardians Halo 5: Guardians Product Image

This game hangs at the border of Call of Duty and Halo. I was thoroughly disappointed by the amount of new material that brought the game further away from the general concept of Halo and more towards a game about the weapons in the game, and how cool the players can make them. That aside, I thought it was a decent game. I appreciate the game bringing back the infected game mode and the almost identical armors from Halo Reach. The Emile's Regards assassination was a nice nostalgic touch.
My biggest complaint for this game is: Where is the split screen? This should be a basic part of any Halo game. What's the fun of playing the game at your friend's house if only one of you can play? Not everyone has an Xbox One.

Halo is just going to be milked with the title of "Microsoft's Best Exclusive" to the point where it will decay on the display shelf.
It was quite disappointing as Halo CE was by far my first and favorite shooter game due to nostalgia. The original trilogy plus Reach was honestly a masterpiece. Great storyline, great gameplay, decent graphics (Not up to this day though), and redeeming character development as proved by Halo 2. Not only that, but the multiplayer really pushed franchises like Call of Duty to the silver medal.

Then Bungie decided to leave for a walk with Destiny, got into an accident, and let his new friend 343, take care of Halo. Unfortunately, 343 confused Halo with a cow and the whole mess began.

After playing this game for myself, I can honestly say it did not live up to the hype. The graphics, first, are indeed phenomenal. What I wouldn't give to experience it in virtual reality! But... looks don't make the cut. The campaign was cringe-worthy. You play as some strange spartan named "Loche" or "Lock" or something for the majority of the game, where the story is excruciatingly boring. Master Chief's segments are the game's only saving grace, but even then it feels lacking in plot. You're followed - whether Loche or Chief - by 3 mindless AIs that can't be controlled. My original hope for the game was the ability to play split-screen 4-players for the campaign, although I do see how that could have been hectic. Nonetheless, the plot is most definitely lacking, as if all Halo 4 drama has been thrown out the window. I can't really say more without spoilers.

Multiplayer is fine. It's suffered a loss of great game modes like Dominion and Ricochet/Oddball, but it's still fun ...more

I really think this game could have done better than what they had. The multiplayer and the graphics were spot on. I loved the scenery.But the campaign was horrible. It wasn't about the chief and loche fighting. They had one really good fight scene and that was it. the After that it was just activating guardians one after another. The requisitions were cool, but they could have done better on getting more stuff and more points. It seemed like every now and then all I get is garbage like guns for war zone, and I don't even play it! half of the people that play halo don't play it for war zone. but the worst thing ever is that it doesn't have splitscreen

16 Assassin's Creed Syndicate Assassin's Creed Syndicate Product Image

Even through Assassins Creed changed a lot, I still love this one. I play Assassins Creed since the second one was realised, but this is way better.

Mostly, I love the atmosfere. London is such a beautiful city and in the game, it's made perfectly. You can find there the most popular historical buildings and the most popular historical people whom lived in London in 19's century; like Big Ben or St. Paul's Cathedral, Charles Darwin, Queen Victoria or Alexander Graham Bell.

Shooting is way better than in Unity. The designers made a really good work here.

Switching between Jacob and Evie is really interesting, too.

Syndicate deserves to be in a top 3!

Syndicate was a fantastic game. Nice graphics, fun gameplay, and plenty of missions to keep you occupied throughout. I also appreciated how they brought in a female role, and the environment of London is beautiful. A really solid and entertaining game for the series, this really should be higher on the list. Who gives a crap about making a Mario level when you can be living the life of the coolest and most dangerous assassin, saving historic London from the clutches of evil.

This game is gonna suck. I've lost almost all fate in ubisoft after unity. I am not trying to hate on assassins creed assassin creed 1 was great, 2 was excellent, 4 was amazing, but unity was so disappointing and don't even get me started on rouge.

The same formula, same story... I don't know why people even enlisted this game... I don't even want to talk about the game's same mechanics, story and gameplay.

17 Dying Light Dying Light Product Image

The storyline is somewhat engaging and the gameplay is very engaging, but it gets boring after you finish the main quests. It's not fun to play by yourself killing zombies to level up for no reason in campaign mode, and when you blindly qeue for online mode, the players that are matched up to you can be any level, and have weapons and damage potential 100 times less or 100 times more than you. It's also hard to ignore the fact that you can ask a higher level for their trash weapons and use it to one hit virals.

Dying Light takes an overused genre and gives it a breath of fresh air. It isn't the typical zombie game where you find yourself fending off mass hoards of the undead only to retrieve the random quest item for a random dude. You fight against unique zombies with a variety of customizable weapons while parkouring through the city to help save people you grow to love.

The graphics are good and the parkour engine is fun at first, but that's about it. This game desperately tried to set itself apart from the other cookie-cutter zombie games, yet it sadly has the same premise as Dead Rising: go around and be everybody's errand boy!

I honestly wouldn't put this as my #1, but it REALLY deserves a lot better then the current ranking it has, Fallout 4 beats this one in my books, but just barely.

18 Splatoon Splatoon Product Image

Uh... how the heck is Call of Duty, of ALL THINGS, higher than Splatoon? I know people hate it when someone says this, but guess what? Call of Booty is the same thing over and over again. People say "No, there's new guns and maps! " when Ubisoft (or Activision, can't remember) could just release that stuff as DLC. Improved Zombies mode? Patches/updates. New mode? Dlc. My brother is a huge Call of Duty fan, but he admits that one of the newer ones he purchased was black ops with a jetpack. Splatoon? It's a unique shooter. Heck, you don't even HAVE to shoot. Use a roller, inkbrush, octobrush! And while you can kill, your main focus is inking everything. There's even competitive Ranked Battles, map and gun dlc, (cough Call of Duty cough) campaign, local multiplayer, and not only do you buy weapons, but you can also get clothes, hats and shoes. And they actually do something; they give you special abilities instead of just looking cool. Point is, Splatoon rocks. It is definitely top 5 ...more

This game is awesome. Everything about it is awesome. Too bad I have bad internet connection. Neither I, nor my brother can't play online. Sorry if that sentence doesn't make sense. Still, single player is fun, and so is the online mode. I have a guide book, which I got for Christmas. I think the Inklings, Octarians, and NPCs are cute in every single way. Although, some of the Octarians look like a derp, no offense. At first, I thought Octarians looked ugly, but now I think they are so cute! Too bad they're underrated. Now, here's what I have to say about those morons:

Those idiots who think this game is for babies and say to get a 3DS instead, act mature and shut your pie holes. This game rocks! The Wii U and 3DS are both made by Nintendo, and I have both. Do you consider me a gamer? Eh?! Stop calling Splatoon lovers five-year-olds, and babies. Babies don't know how to use a Wii U, and some of us, including me, are older than five years. Sorry if this comment is too long.

I had always avoided shooters before thanks to graphic violence and the harassment of other players, but Nintendo really knows how to remove those elements and still make the game increasingly addictive. It's a very welcoming game for casuals, but still has those statistic details and intense strategies that hardcore players like.

I am honestly surprised not seeing this game in the top 10. At least it was on the first page of contenders, or I would have had my socks blown off.
This game really deserves a higher seat, being an underrated game. I can see Undertale, and other great games above it, but Call of Duty? Fallout? What? How did these replicas even get to the high spots?

19 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Product Image

This game by all means isn't flawless, but it damn well deserves better than #22. It is an innovative breath of fresh air in the FPS realm, of which snore fests Call of Duty & Battlefield currently have a monopoly on.

It is also worth mentioning that it is currently getting better as the months go by. More operators and content is being added (FOR FREE! ), bugs are continuously being fixed, and the overall playing community is steadily growing, 90% of video games can't say that after 8+ months since the release date.

My personal favorite fps of all time now, its bugged to hell but it's so intense, so fun so gripping, it may not be the best looking, it may not work right all the time, but its just a good change of pace from the bore fest of Call of Duty and battlefield. Not to mention free dlc.

Amazing game. Too bad it was published by Ubisoft so the connection breaks a lot and it takes forever to find a game. Incredibly good game though.

One of my favorite FPS games. This game should be higher. The gameplay is just awesome. Ubisoft did a great job with this one.

Ark is a game with great graphics and gameplay and there are many things to do

21 Until Dawn Until Dawn Product Image

I loved this game so much. I've been playing it for almost 2 years. It drives me crazy on how good it is. Although, let's be honest, it's not crazy popular like Life Is Strange, but it's still worth so much and it can be popular is people wouldn't overlook it. It makes you sad on how people and the actors put so much time and care and EFFORT. It took 2 years to make the game. Life is Strange is a BEAUTIFUL game, but Until Dawn took a lot more time and care. I'm not begging to have this in the top ten because it doesn't belong. It hasn't been around long enough. The games that have worked for years and years belong in the top ten. Graphics? Outstanding. Gorgeous. It's actually scary, and really has the horror genre. Life Is Strange is meant to be a click style game- great choice. There choices actually change he game- Until Dawn had some trouble with that. Mainly, the game felt the same even when different choices were made. That's the one problem. Other than that, for a low famous ...more

This is one of my favourite games for many reasons. Mainly because you get to choose how your caracters are gonna act, and develop the story that way.I loved it because it has the horror game features but it has a much deeper meaning. The graphics are great too. I like the fact that you had to collect clues to fully understand the story. The totems were preety cool too. I also loved the don't move feature, it made the game 100times more stressful. I hope they release a dlc, or part 2 of the game. This game deserves to be higher on this list. (I also liked the sound of footsteps on the snow haha)

I have been a horror fan all my life, and I found this game to be more enjoyable than 99% of all horror movies that've come out in this past decade. Not only are the graphics stellar, but the acting is so fantastic. The dialogue is amazing. I don't know what's more disappointing: The fact that this is only at #25, or the fact that Life Is Strange is currently ahead of it.

Why isn't this in the top 10? its at number 45 at the moment what? They put so much effort into this game, and it didn't even get into the top 10. I don't even know how Mortal Kombat came first, but its just the messed up world we live in. I mean like its one of the best games I have ever played. The graphics were truly amazing!

22 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Product Image

"In my opinion, Majora's mask was the best game I had growing up. I can't tell you how much I loved it. I had always loved creepy things, sure as hell made my day many times. The storyline was phenomenal and no matter how many times I played it, I still kept a keen interest in it. Then comes the BEN Drowned story to go along... Long story short, we the people want more LOZ like this.

This game is a masterpiece. It was the game the not me into one of the best game series of all time, The Legend Of Zelda. With great gameplay elements, an amazing story, and the highest pitch scream in gaming history, it well deserves to be in the top ten.

Majora's Mask 3D is a very philosophical game. If you play it, it could change your life, no joke. I especially love what the moon children say after you give them masks and stuff. So philosophical. So good.

Well, it only had Nostalgia going for it. Really wasn't a reason to bring it to the 3DS, in my opinion.

23 Rise of the Tomb Raider Rise of the Tomb Raider Product Image

Lots are saying that this is a great game that deserves just as much love as some of these other titles, that Crystal Dynamics basically took everything right with the 2013 game and improved upon that. And to top it all off, it looks gorgeous. It's such a shame that it will be overshadowed due to timed exclusivity and coinciding with the release of games like Black Ops 3 and Fallout 4. Oh Microsoft, you silly bastards.

I like tomb raider. I's just disappointed that the publishers made it a timed exclusive for Xbox One. So now I have to wait another year. But now Sony is going to smack Microsoft in the face by making Final Fantasy 7 Remake a timed exclusive. Talk about payback.

This game is gorgeous. An excellent sequel, and a great way for Microsoft to make me get an Xbox because hell if I'm waiting for it to come out on ps4. Shame it was an exclusive though... Could have gotten more of a fanbase...

After 2013, it feels like I have waited an entire lifetime for this follow-up. I am hard-biased because I love Camilla Luddington and she does this role more than justice. Lara Croft: the OG female badass!

24 Mad Max Mad Max Product Image

I don't hear many people talking about this game, it's actually really good!

I've played it and it's a really good good game.

How is Call of Duty better than this?

What game is this

25 Xenoblade Chronicles X Xenoblade Chronicles X Product Image

The game is bigger than Skyrim, has a deep and intriguing battle system, 200+ hours worth of side quests and 100+ hours of main story, not to mention the story is epic. Its truely and adventure, which some games of the past year are lacking in. Disappointing? that's silly. This game is amazing.

With hundreds of hours of interesting story, the most beautiful game world I've ever seen, and gameplay that (once understood) is engaging and interesting, Xenoblade X is without a doubt my favorite game of 2015.

Its unfortunate this game is somewhat silent to the gaming industry. It is truly a great continuation to the first Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii. Lets go let casual games take the lead though!

Easily my vote, I was hooked as soon as I started playing. The world size is just astronomical and the sense of adventure is second to none.
