My 2015 in Games: Leftovers

(Note: I normally wouldn’t post a draft like this a year late, but I couldn’t bear the thought of my terrible “tier” puns in the leftovers section going to waste)

To paint a fully accurate picture of my 2015 in games, I felt the need to write up the games that I either didn’t finish, or aren’t finishable in the traditional sense. Some of them may have been game of the year contenders had I finished them, others, I played long enough without finishing to know that the would not be.

My 2015 in Games: The Contenders

(Note: I normally wouldn’t post a draft like this a year late, but I couldn’t bear the thought of my terrible “tier” puns in the leftovers section going to waste)

The way I see it, it’s hard to call a game my “game of the year” if it wasn’t good enough for me to want to finish it (if possible). As such, my contenders list for 2015 game of the year is a bit shorter than it has been in years past. Looking back on the 2015 games I played and finished, I’m disappointed in myself for the glut of sequels. Of the eight games I finished that came out this year, over half of them were part of a series (having played it, I consider Bloodborne essentially the fourth Souls game) and of those The Witcher 3 is the “youngest” of them. I may have felt 2015 was a bit of a down year in gaming, but upon further inspection, I only have myself to blame. And with that ringing endorsement, here are my top 8 games of 2015.

Excitement.

The BART strike forced me to work from home, which meant a lot of Skype and e-mail communications, so when my phone notified me that I had received and e-mail, I assumed it was work related.
