With 2015 drawing to an close we’d like to look back at the games that we waited patiently for release since January 1st 2015. Those games that keep putting us on the edge, the games that gave us control over our all time favorites; we are talking about the big gaming franchises in 2015, those games that when announced we knew (even before watching the game plays and trailers) were going to blow us away.
And 2015 did nothing but impress us, starting with Grand Theft Auto V.
GTA V was originally released on September 2013 but it wasn’t until April of 2015 that we (PC master race) got to walk the streets of Los Santos once again.
It seems like free-roaming and open-world are starting to become a trend in the gaming industry. During 2015 we saw some of the biggest and most important games resort to an open world approach, and that was the case for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Just Cause 3, Fallout 4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and even Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
It was also the year for some all time favorites such as Mortal Kombat X, Halo 5 and the kid’s favorite Call of Duty Black Ops 3 (because after all these years, there is nothing better than having a random person telling you how fat your mom is over the mic).
Last but not least we had Battlefront, and it is impossible for me to talk about it without mentioning the so called “Season Pass” – a pack that gives you access to multiple maps, weapons and game modes. Some people see it as “added value” and others (including me) as a debacle, after all we are talking about a game that was released on November 17 and after a couple months from release announced a $50 DLC pack.
Hopefully 2016 bring us new titles as well as some of the classics. As a gamer I will like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year, filled with amazing video games and a lack of pointless DLCs and games ruined by pay to win tactics.
