Best Video Games of 2015

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

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

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

Controls: Very good controls, combat functions extremely well while horseback and swimming are also pretty good

Graphics: Absolutely stunning game. Though the characters and cutscenes and monsters and items all look great, it's the in-game environments that make up the huge open world that really make the game the most beautiful I have ever seen.

Combat: Very satisfying combat. Plays like an Action RPG with heavy emphasis on the Action: similar to Dark Souls, the Witcher uses RPG stats for the gear and character stats while controlling like an action game. The Witcher uses two swords, one for monsters and one for mortals, and can also use a small crossbow, bombs, potions, and several spells. Switching between items is easy and seamless in the midst of a fight, and character progression is handled cleverly and uniquely, allowing for high customization within the boundaries set by the story of your character. While combat is very fun, due to the amount of content in the ...more

Excellent storytelling, emotive characters you can relate to, side quests that are more than just fetch quests and actually affect the game world in realistic and sometimes unexpected ways, the attention to detail (the facial expressions of the characters that the game developers managed to attain without motion capture is simply phenomenal), Difficult and morally ambiguous choices that always make you think twice, A game world where you can spend hours on end just soaking in the panoramic views...I could go on and on...but the gist of it all is that Witcher 3 is not just one of the best RPGs but one of the best video games of all time.

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.

I agree. I hate this game. Godzilla should be on here. It's a game for fans.

Got a doll, baby, I love her so
Nothing else like her anywhere you go
Man, she's anything but calm
A regular pint sized atom bomb

Refrain: Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb
I want her in my wigwam
She's just the way I want her to be
A million times hotter than TNT

Atom bomb baby loaded with power
Radioactive as a T.V. tower
A nuclear fission in her soul
Loves with electronic control

Refrain

Atom bomb baby, boy she can start
One of those chain reactions in my heart
A big explosion, big and loud
Mushrooms me right up on a cloud

Refrain

Atom bomb baby sweet as a plum
Carries more wallop than uranium
When she kisses, there's no hitch
Zero power, she turns on the switch

Refrain

Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb
I want her in my wigwam
She's just the way I want her to be
A million times hotter than TNT
Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb baby

Holy crap this is way better than Fallout 3. don't listen to what people are saying. It's got a kind of similar formula: open world RPG shooter. But everything is vastly improved. Shooting mechanics are almost as good as Call of Duty (I don't really like that series but it does have good shooting mechanics.) Graphics are meh, but not horrible like people say. Base building will take up hours of your time, and is super fun. Did you like Skyrim? You will love Fallout 4. It is a lot like Skyrim but more choices seem to have a bit more impact. Also the story is much better than Fallout 3 or Skyrim. Plus, it has a very colorful world in comparison to those games. I'm 80 hours in and not even close to finished with content. I'm close to done with the main quest, but there's a ton of sidequests left. So if you want a game that's worth your money, this is worth paying that $60. More bang for your buck in comparison to, say, Assassin's Creed or nearly any game besides the Witcher 3.

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

3 Batman: Arkham Knight Batman: Arkham Knight Product Image

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.

This game should be (in my opinion) tie with fallout 4 because they keep me playing them again and again with endless joy. And why is Star Wars battlefront on this list? I love it but The game isn't out yet, it's out when you get the DLC.

4 Mortal Kombat X

In my opinion this should be number one because it's awesome! I don't have it but I do go two my friends house and play it all the time and I have to tell you it's great I just wish they would give my favorite character (Liu kang) some more attention because he's kinda be pushed away ever since MK v.s DC so yea

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

Its good but the story and graphics where all that saved it. I like that we are getting new charcters but there not really that good and what happend to the roster this game I felt like I had 12 charcters to pick from unlike MK9 where it filled the screen with people instead of what your gonna look like

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

Quite simply an amazing game. I really enjoyed Witcher 3 but I was let down by the gameplay. In my opinion the gameplay of MGSV is a lot better, and the online gameplay really swings it for me. In a great year for games for me The Phantom Pain is the best game that was released in 2015.

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

Pros: Level designing, new level concepts, Mario meets difficult puzzles, Song creation, very precise timing "Do Not Move" levels, recreation of old Mario levels, remodels of old Mario levels, Mario Kart in regular Mario, and the mystery mushrooms.
Cons: Nintendo deletes levels with no stars, levels get deleted after some time star or not, level thievery, non-creative levels, levels that are impossible to beat for the 100 Mario challenge, having to unlock all the level elements (it can take a day, but it's just annoying), level upload cap, needing stars to increase the cap, and HAVING NO DISLIKE OR LIKE BUTTON...

The most joke ever, and still top 4 of the list... Why am I saying it's a joke? It's simple.

A whole team with a lot of budget from the Nintendo team, one of the biggest company of video games, throws up something like that... Size of levels extremely limited (while only having 2 sections), impossible to manage advanced events, unable to make a world, only levels, you can't play a level with a friend (only share levels)...
On the other side, a single guy, just for fun, made a software called Super Mario Bros X, allowing everything I said. Although he stopped to continue to make updates, someone else took the project and continues it, getting a lot of updates regularly, even allowing scripting for those who can use them, giving nearly an unlimited amount of opportunities.
Oh, and all mobs and most of blocks can be totally custom, so create your own enemies for your game. And, most important, it's totally free~

So why paying for Super Mario Maker, while you can get ...more

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.

8 Undertale

All things considered, Undertale is, without a doubt, one of the top 20 most overrated, yet also shockingly greatest, video games of all time. Don't let its obnoxiously cancerous, comically overblown, rapidly festering fanbase spawned from the deepest depths of Tumblr deceive you; this game lives up to its name (though probably not its hype) and is anything but mere clickbait.

To make a ridiculously long story short, I adore this simply fabulous role-playing masterpiece to death, and in hopes that its desperately needed Hard Mode will eventually be finished, I am most definitely giving it at least 9 out of 10 dollars just for its story alone. And I shall now take a very important and honorable vow...

A vow that every gamer who considers himself such fancy and egotistical words as "classy" and "intellectual" and all of that stupid pointless bollocks has absolutely NO excuse NOT to play this beauteous masterwork; if you're reading this and you still haven't bought the game ...more

Tumblr stereotyper. Please elaborate on what is wrong with the fanbase except for the immature little cocky kids.

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.

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

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.

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 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!

This is the best Call of Duty ever. The game wasn't really supposed to be made for last gen so don't judge that because it's garbage. On Next Gen though the game is very smooth. When they added 1000 levels it kept all of the Prestige Master try hards going. Nothing can compare to such an excellent. Everything is fun and enjoyable because of the ranking systems introduced into the three individual parts of the game. Zombies brings nostalgia back because of the Giant remade. Great Game overall 10/10 forever never will die like Advanced Warfare.

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.

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.

This should be easy higher than Call of Duty but Call of Duty fan boys love to troll and rack up the vote falsely. This game is big and fun. Never boring. Unlike boring Call of Duty games that are pretty much all the same n no fun to play.

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.

It certainly had it's flaws- the ending is now infamous for being so inconclusive and inconsequential, and the writing and gameplay mechanics were both somewhat uneven at times, but overall it's received far, far more criticism than it ever deserved especially considering how rich, and overwhelmingly powerful the combination of it's compelling story, genuinely believable characters, meticulously designed environments, testing decisions and profoundly well-suited soundtrack were.

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.

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)

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

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!

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 Dragon Ball Xenoverse Dragon Ball Xenoverse Product Image

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!

Dragon Ball game creators I have one thing to say to you what did you do to my favorite game serises like can we go back to dragon ball budaki tenciechi 2 for fighting. I can't even figure out what is going on let alone make any really story progression. from what I could get to the story was nice and unique so can I get this story but budaki tenkiechi 2 gameplay style

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,

14 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...

The trailer is AWESOME! the game however, 1-10...5. The old battlefronts were way better. They should have just refurbished the old ones. Let's start with the good things.
Good graphics.
First person is optional.
Multiplayer.( duh.)
More challenging.
And now for the bad things...
No space battles.
Only 4 battle locations.
Can't chose your class of rebels, or stormtroopers. Automatically selected for you.😥
Can't use vehicles of any kind except if your connected to PlayStation network...A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY FOR PlayStation NETWORK!
When in training, you can fly an xwing but its incredibly slow, and hard. A lot easier to control on the other battlefronts.
When playing heroes or villains, you can only 1 of choose 3 characters!
No clone wars.

So all in all, this game is decent, but not worth 50$. But isn't it sad how an older game has way better things to offer,and then a game reboot made 11 years later is not even worth playing.

15 Dying Light

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!

Fun game good graphics, this is what deep silver wanted dead island to be. Much better than the game breaking glitches in dead island too. And tons of Easter eggs to find

16 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

Well, Black ops 3 was a comeback on next gen. The last two games were downright atrocious. But splatoon should have been in the top ten.

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.

While I don't own a Wii U this game is fun though. Seriously the game is colorful and basically Call of Duty but with a kid feature. I seriously adore the Inklings and the Squid Sisters they are cute and hilarious at times. You play as Inkilngs that are human/squid teens and you can chat with friends, customize your inklings with clothing and accessories and play online with others in Ranked matches or regular matches. They also have news were the Squid Sisters explain the las test news for the game. There's these so called Splatfest which you basically choose a team (Example hot dogs vs Pizza) and have to battle out in special matches for special rewards they also change the plaza to night party theme and have the many Splatoon characters you regularly see dance in Inkopolis. They are pretty nice too with DLC since it's mostly free. I haven't tried try single player but it's great. Overall this game is great. Overall 9.5/10 I also suggest getting the Splatoon Amiibos so that way you ...more

Wow, a really unique SHOOTER game lower than Cancer, a 5 year old shooter game, and others?

Splatoon is really Diffrent than any other taking-over-something game.. Instead of boring red and blue teams, solution goes for Orange, blue, some kind of green, magenta/purple, and many other team colors!

And NO, even though you can kill, its not the goal like the Call of Duty (which is for 5-year olds,) its for you to take over by coloring the whole map with your team color!

And unlike any cancerous games, (yes undertale, I'm watching you) it isn't overrated, yet underrated. It's like a in the middle.

And also...SQUIDS? (I'm sure they were) WHO WOULDVE THOUGHT OF THAT? Well the creators of splatoon did!

And NO, if you are looking for a child game...ask them to play Call of duty, Grand Theft Auto V, or undertale! LOADS AND LOADS AND LOADS of 3-5 year olds play those games!

17 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.

Syndicate was a step in the right direction after the abysmal launch of Unity. The first Assassin's Creed I enjoyed since Revelations.

18 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.

This game was truly an upset in my opinion, the new abilities were fine the gameplay was fine, the campaign was a sorry excuse for a halo game such that I almost thought I was playing Call of Duty. That would have been acceptable, but they completely ruined multiplayer. Now the entire game revolves around reqs. They had a good concept; having ranked games to sort players into lobbies based on skill and not rank, but the ranking was based on a win-loss ratio which would have had a couple of issues anyway but the outcome of every game depended on who have the best reqs and who got their hands on the special weapon drops, so skill didn't play into the system or the multiplayer game at all. I honestly don't even think they deserve to call this Halo, regardless of the copyright. Someone needs to take Halo away from 343 until they can learn to treat it with respect

I really enjoyed Halo 4 and its emotional campaign, but Halo 5 pretends like nothing you did mattered. Cortana is instantly back just cause and every mission is done with a group of AI buddies, even worse, you only play as the Master Chief for a few missions. I don;t care about some sissy young spartans, I wanted to play as the one and only Master Chief. Also this game doesn't even have splitscreen... What a joke. Instead we now have micro-transactions... In a Halo game... Hey you! Remember when games were made for the players enjoyment and not the Dev's greed. At least the multiplayer is half-decent

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.

20 ARK: Survival Evolved

Fight Dino's tame them fight with them build and collect materials and build your bases.

Have underwater adventure skill alphas breed Dino's collect get eggs.

This game is my favorite game ever. it totally tips off Minecraft and you can ride fly and swim your Dino's around this giant map. BY IAN MARKOVIC. sponcers mqh mary queen of heaven school. best school on earth Catholic school. Do you want to be a MQH KNIGHT?

This is my favorite dinosaur game ever. Like Fnaf 4, I haven't bought it but some day I will soon. Its like Minecraft and Garry's mod except that it has dinos and that I liked that you can actually tame dinos and other primeval creatures and you can do what you want in that game.

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

Y is it so underrated its awesome

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.

In my own opinion, this game is the best. I love the story and also the great elements anyway.

23 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.

24 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!

25 Mad Max

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

This deserves top be right after the Assassin's Creed

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

Its like Grand Theft Auto but better
