21 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

"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.

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.

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 is one of the most mentally challenging and complex games there is.

22 Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

I really love this! The only thing I don't like is you don't have your own house. - funnyuser

Had to hire the plumber to clean my pipes; a clean home is a happy home.

This game should be in the top 5

BEST GAME EVER

23 Rise of the Tomb Raider

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. - MRniceguy583

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...

I'm getting the PS4 version. - SonicFan4Life

24 Xenoblade Chronicles X

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!

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.

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.

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. - Ant-Fan

25 Mad Max

I don't hear many people talking about this game, it's actually really good! - MRniceguy583

Its like Grand Theft Auto but better - gir902

This and Dying Light are the most underrated games of 2015
This game was so good
Maybe a bit repetitive but I played it for over 100 hours and I liked every second of them
The combat is so brutal and I think it's better than assassin's creed or batman
And no game has car combat like this
9/10

nice game

26 Until Dawn

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 - Untildawn8

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!

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)

This game is really insane, it should be higher on this list. The plot is breathtaking and the graphics are too, and I love those games where you get to choose your characters' reactions, just like Beyond Two Souls. It's my ultimate crush this year... - Noctalli

27 Lego Dimensions

It's a fun game with creative worlds and it's really cool to see doctor who and ghostbusters in a Lego game

I like the way you can take the figures off the stand and use them as normal mini figures. Lego PORTAL!

LOVE the Dimensions

10/10 WOULD PLAY AGAIN

30 WWE 2K16

Why is this not #1? This game was SO awesome! Every WWE fan needs to play this. It is a lot of fun when you play tournaments and I also like making superstars and divas.

Much improved from 2K15 in terms of roster and game modes

2K16 Has improved a lot this year. better than 2k15 and the previous ones.

Very good game

31 Minecraft Story Mode

OK, this game isn't technically a game, more like a movie with some parts you can choose what happens, why? Extremely long cut-scenes foe a game that should have barely any cut-scenes, battling doesn't feel like battling, and the game's story is bizarre and nonsensical.
What I don't get is who thought of this abomination and who thought it was a good idea, oh and the commercials describe it as what you would expect from a game that would keep you on edge.

Play the original Minecraft! - Maddox121

Telltale really should make a game without episodes sure their games our great but I have to buy the other episodes - Tbrophy038

Not that good, but definitely not bad at all. Totally underrated, as most people I know call it "cancer in physical form". Just fine, but Episode 5 was more meh. I am not buying the three episode pack, and I don't think you should either. - Extractinator04

Ign 50/50 love the rule 34s of the chicken

36 Mario Party 10

Worst Mario Party game ever. Everything that was great about 1-8 has been stripped down and booted out. Amiibos are gimmicks and need to stop, Bowser Party was fun for an hour, and overall this just isn't a Mario Party game

Mario Party 8 is the boss

Party in the house tonight.

this is ok

37 Ori and the Blind Forest

This game is beautiful should be MUCH, MUCH higher

I've played many of the games on this list, but this one by far is my favorite.

Amazing, but that tree escape was very very hard - alimarashian

I agree it should be much much higher than... Disney INFINTY 3.0!

38 The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

It's different from most of the games in the Legend of Zelda series. It's plot is a little more light-hearted than the other games in the franchise. It's funny and that's okay because it reaches to other audiences as well as its own. It also helps build teamwork and allows you to trust people.

Not much games have actual co-operation these days. In this game, grab your sword, your costume, and your item and join up with friends t take on challenges you cannot take alone! This game has the most teamwork I have seen in games by far, and puts a wild twist on Zelda Games ( And gaming in general )

To be honest, I didn't really enjoy this game. It is really fun once you know what to do, but, it is extremely frustrating playing online. If you don't have friends to play it with, I would not get it. There is single player mode, but it is hard to complete timed puzzles. - Dawscr

It's legend of Zelda. Like a new Star Wars movie. You know it has to be made good by the cast & crew considering how big it is. - MusicMovieMinecraftMe

40 FIFA 16

My respect this game is the best in the world and should be in number one.

I thought FIFA 15 was the best but then this game came out. - francesco

Goalkeepers are so much better and good players are so cheap

Why is it number 65; I expected it to be the first in the list. - amoory
