Games of the Year 2015

| December 31, 2015

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

2015 was a huge breath of fresh air for the gaming industry after a disappointing 2014. Sure, we still had the occasional broken game, and some huge releases still let us down, but overall the gaming industry delivered the big guns this year.

For many it was a year of innovation, with old series reinventing themselves, while new IP came out and rocked the gaming world. Each platform had something new and fresh to present to gamers.

However, it was also a year for looking back, as we saw the trend of remasters and remakes continue to take hold. Luckily, many of these remakes were of some of the best games of all time, and the fresh coat of paint only solidified their place in history.

So, with that said, we present our Games of the Year for 2015. Our entire staff was involved in these choices, coming up with nominees and then narrowing them down to the winners and honorable mentions. A few of us also put together our own personal lists, which you can check out at the end.

Platforms

Platform of the Year – Xbox One

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – What an amazing year it has been for Microsoft’s Xbox One. While the PS4 continues to dominate in sales, the Xbox One has quietly fixed almost every minor issue that fans might have had with it, while simultaneously adding in features that many thought impossible.

Backwards Compatibility shocked everyone when it was announced at E3 2015, and the New Xbox One Experience streamlined the interface through which gamers interact with their console. Meanwhile, Microsoft secured tons of exclusive titles for their system, with Forza 6, Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Gears of War Ultimate Edition headlining what Microsoft quite correctly referred to as the best games lineup in Xbox history.

Microsoft didn’t stop there though, they also increased the options in terms of hardware, pushing out bundles, larger hard drives, and more Kinect-less systems. This helped lower the price, while giving new owners something to play right from the beginning.

This was certainly a great year for anyone with an Xbox One, and the big question is, can Microsoft continue this momentum into 2016.

Best PlayStation – Bloodborne

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Mike – 2015 wasn’t exactly the best year for PlayStation 4 when it came to console exclusives, continuing the same trend of a lack of big exclusives the console has had from the beginning. While PlayStation 4 remained the best console to play on when it came to multi-platform titles, there were really only a few exclusives that were worth talking about this year. However, despite the lack of quantity there is no denying that the quality of PlayStation 4’s Bloodborne was rivaled by very few others this year.

While the Souls series has been going strong since Demon’s Souls launched in 2009 for PlayStation 3, Bloodborne took what was built by the previous Souls games and brought them into a more sinister and Gothic city called Yharnam that was overflowing with beautifully-ominous Victorian architecture. The same punishing gameplay that fans of the series came to expect was still front and center, but minor shifts in the mechanics that allowed you to both wield a gun and transform your melee weapon’s speed, power and reach on the fly ensured that the experience became something unique.

It’s almost a cliche now to say that a Souls game by From Software is an amazing experience, but Bloodborne is easily the best exclusive that the PlayStation 4 currently has to offer and may just be the best game in the Souls series yet.

Honorable Mention – Until Dawn

Best Xbox – Ori & the Blind Forest

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Damian – It was a pretty good year for the Xbox One console as many exclusives came out. However, only Ori & the Blind Forest felt truly fresh and exciting. There weren’t many other Xbox One exclusives that looked as beautiful as this game. Graphics aren’t everything in gaming, but this could be an exception. This game has visuals that you might expect from a Studio Ghibli animated movie.

The other thing that makes this game unique is that it’s from a genre we don’t see too often these days. The 2D side-scroller was dominant in the ’80s and early ’90s but that all changed when 3D games came around. The game is difficult sure, but the level design makes you want to try and try again in order to succeed.

Aside from the graphics and gameplay, the soundtrack is also great to listen to. Everything about this game has a magical feeling to it that you cannot help but just smile at it. There’s a reason this game was four years in development. Moon Studio needed all the time they could get to craft something that is nearly perfect.

Honorable Mention – Halo 5

Best Nintendo – Super Mario Maker

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Dean – Mario is the most synonymous and iconic name in all of gaming, spanning decades of games across different genres. However, there is none more important than the side-scrolling platformer version of Mario, which is celebrated to near perfection in Super Mario Maker.

Ever since the original Super Mario Bros., Nintendo has been providing gamers with creative and unique stage designs, but Super Mario Maker finally lets you take control.

Offering a full stage creator for Mario seems like a tall task, but Super Mario Maker is as simple and easy to use as possible, while also still being very involving and open to allow for near infinite possibilities.

Between building your own stages or playing the incredible number of those made by other gamers, Super Mario Maker will provide you with pure joy and is easily one of the best games to every grace the Wii U.

Honorable Mention – Xenoblade Chronicles X

Best PC – Starcraft II

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – The PC platform continued its growth toward total world domination in 2015, becoming the home to some of the best games of the year. Most of these games were multi-platform titles though, with exclusives outside of the indie realm remaining fairly tough to find.

However, if you want deep, rewarding gaming experiences, look no further than PC exclusives like Starcraft II. The RTS series came back in a huge way with this sequel, released in multiple parts starting all the way back in 2010.

Finally, after over five years we see the conclusion to this saga with Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void. Players get to experience the same classic RTS action, but this time from the Protoss side of the conflict.

Honorable Mention – GTA V

Best Multi-Platform – Fallout 4

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – Fallout 4 was quite possibly one of the most highly anticipated games of all time. Bethesda did a masterful job of keeping the game under wraps, with only a few scant leaks hinting at its existence. Then they opened the floodgates at E3 and every gamer in the world took notice.

With such high expectations it would have been very easy for the game to falter, yet it shined. Sure, there were technical issues, especially on the console versions, but overall it was the same massive, open-world gameplay that we have come to expect from this series.

But that wasn’t all, as Bethesda took this opportunity to reshape the Fallout formula in many ways. While many players were running around, firing off headshots at Super Mutants, others were back at Sanctuary, building a community. The Workshop features were truly revolutionary for this series, changing the way you play the game in a number of ways.

This mixture of classic gameplay with new innovations made Fallout 4 the best game to hit multiple platforms this year.

Honorable Mention – MGS V

Best Handheld – The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Dean – While The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time may be regarded as one of the best games ever made, its N64 counterpart often was forgotten by a large part of the gaming community. For those that may have missed out previously, the Nintendo 3DS added yet another stellar title with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D in 2015.

Majora’s Mask offers a departure from the lighter tone of much of the Legend of Zelda series, instead offering a much more dark and downright depressing turn. Years later, the emotions are still as effective and gripping as they ever were, especially for anybody that is playing it for the first time.

On top of improving the visuals for the game, a number of enhancements were made, including better swimming and a much more expansive Bomber’s Notebook. Majora’s Mask was already a fantastic game in and of itself, and with the number of additions, it was easily the best handheld game of 2015.

Honorable Mention – Lara Croft GO

Genres

Best Shooter – Splatoon

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – Who ever would have guessed that a Nintendo title would win Best Shooter 2015? And when you realize that this was a year filled with great shooters, from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to Halo 5: Guardians, it becomes all the more impressive. Yet, that is exactly what happened thanks to the fantastic fun that is Splatoon.

Taking the shooter genre and turning it on its head, Splatoon offers a totally unique take on the formula. Sure, you can shoot other players, but in the most popular game mode that isn’t the point at all. Instead, it is all about map control, something that is true of other shooters, but not to this degree. Nintendo took many of the conventions that competitive shooter players understood and put them front and center into the game, reshaping the genre in the process.

None of this would work if the core gameplay didn’t work though. Thankfully Nintendo nailed this, offering another unique twist on shooter controls and mechanics, thanks to the Wii U Gamepad. Sure, you could use standard twin-stick controls, but moving around the Gamepad just felt accurate and natural after a short time.

On top of this is a whole new world of fun characters, with the Inklings quickly becoming favorites among Nintendo fans worldwide. These characters inhabit an even more fun and colorful world, with Splatoon quickly and easily taking its place as one of the finest shooters in a long time.

Honorable Mention – Halo 5

Best Sports – Rocket League

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – I hate sports games. I try not to rule out entire genres from my gaming experience, but Madden, FIFA, and their ilk just don’t interest me at all. And yet, a sports game is exactly what I spent the most time playing this year.

Rocket League seems simple enough, “it’s soccer with cars” people say, yet its depth runs far deeper than anyone could guess. The game is sort of the distillation of the best elements of the sports genre, presenting a simple premise that can keep you interested for hundreds of hours.

Once you begin to master the tougher techniques, such as aerials and wall hits, you start to realize just how great of a sports game Rocket League is. It’s the perfect example of easy to learn, hard to master, that so many sports have been in the past.

Honorable Mention – Madden NFL 15

Best Racing – Forza Motorsport 6

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Damian – When Forza Motorsport 5 came out during the launch of the Xbox One, many people were disappointed. The game was rushed onto shelves as it only had a fraction of the number of cars and tracks that were in Forza Motorsport 4. The game also threw DLC in your face all of the time too.

Thankfully, Forza Motorsport 6 is the exact opposite of Forza Motorsport 5. The newer game offers tons more cars and tracks and DLC is not as “in-your-face” as it was before.

This game also adds night racing and different weather effects. This is the first time that the main entry Forza series added them in. The gameplay is as realistic as ever and the graphics are gorgeous too.

Forza Motorsport 6 is one of the best Xbox One exclusives and racing fans should consider buying this instead of Forza 5. You’ll have more hours of fun with the newer game.

Honorable Mention – Project Cars

Best Action-Adventure – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Damian – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is far different from the other games in the series. What was mostly a linear action experience that can be completed in a couple hours turned into a huge open-world game that offered hours of gameplay. It is pretty much the only stealth-based franchise that completely changed its entire gameplay mechanics for the better.

Much like in Fallout 4, you can also recruit buddies to help you in missions. This includes the popular sniper Quiet, the wolf D-Dog and of course the horse. All of these buddies makes life easier for Snake as he infiltrates enemy bases around the world.

In a lot of ways, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain felt more like an action RPG due to the number of ways you can customize everything. You are free to choose your own loadout as you gain access to better weapons and vehicles the more you play the game.

The game also has a non-linear style as you can decide whether to sneak in quietly, or literally drive through the front door using a tank!

Honorable Mention – Batman: Arkham Knight

Best RPG – Fallout 4

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Damian – The thing that makes Fallout 4 the best RPG this year is that it gives the player lots of choices. You are not stuck playing as a character you don’t want to be, and you can also decide how you want to play the game. What I am trying to say is that Fallout 4 is not linear and this is what makes it such a fun RPG to play.

I won’t spoil the game’s story for you, but I will mention that there are four different endings in the game. The amount of choices that are available to you in Fallout 4 are endless. There are also a ton of side missions offered in the game that prolong what is already a very long experience.

Fallout 4 also exceeds Fallout 3 in lots of ways. The open world environment is much prettier to look at as more color has been added. It’s far better to look at than the drab green and brown colors that dominated Fallout 3.

Another fun feature is that your character can buddy up with companions. The companions are awesome as not only are they helpful, but they all have their own backstories too.

Anyway, Fallout 4 is our pick for best RPG, thanks in large part to the many choices it offers, and the different ways that you can play through the game.

Honorable Mention – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Best Fighting – Mortal Kombat X

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Damian – It was a quiet year for the fighting game genre in 2015, with Tekken 7 and Street Fighter 5 not coming out until 2016. However, we did get one awesome fighting game and that was Mortal Kombat X.

Mortal Kombat (2011) was a reboot that truly reinvigorated the franchise, and Mortal Kombat X is a great follow-up to that game. Boasting the best looking visuals in the entire franchise, the detailed graphics made the famous Fatalities more gruesome than ever before. Even the newly added Brutalities were bone-crushingly difficult to watch sometimes.

Not to mention the actual gameplay is as fun as ever. Unlike some other games released in 2015, Mortal Kombat X has tons of modes that will occupy you for hours on end.

Honorable Mention – Dragonball Xenoverse

Best Multiplayer – Rocket League

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – Another surprise victory for Rocket League, the little indie game that could. In a year that was full of huge, AAA multiplayer experiences, Rocket League stood above all the rest. It helps that it simply honed in on what makes a multiplayer game work so well: short, simple bits of fun gameplay.

The main draw of Rocket League is its completely flat ruleset. The cars all drive and handle almost the exact same, the maps are all the same (aside from the recently released Wasteland arena), the rules never change, and there are no powerups. If you lose in a game of Rocket League it is almost always because the other team was simply better than you.

And yet, it still featured unlockable items and DLC, things that usually destroy the multiplayer experience. However, developer Psyonix handled them in the best way possible, making them all cosmetic and optional. You won’t be able to buy your way to victory in Rocket League.

Honorable Mention – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

Bets Indie – Rocket League

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – What else can I say about this fantastic game? It’s the best Sports and Multiplayer game of 2015, but it is also the best game to come from an independent studio all around. Psyonix has made some games before, including the inaptly named predecessor to Rocket League. Yet they’ve truly shined with this release, both in the game’s initial design and in their follow up to it.

The game itself is game design simplicity in its best and more pure form. It is easy to pick up, and hard to master, making for a deeply rewarding experience from its first hour to its hundredth. Yet every match is technically exactly the same. This could make for a game that surges in popularity and then shrinks back into obscurity.

However, developer Psyonix has kept things fresh and interesting throughout. There’s the random DLC packs, giving devoted players new cosmetic items to play with, but they also gave fans their most requested car with the Back to the Future Delorean popping up as DLC shortly after release.

Then Psyonix continued to improve the game with the first non-regulation map hitting recently, along with modifiers to the core physics and settings. Finally the Hockey mode hit earlier this month, creating a truly new and fresh take on the game.

For all of this and more, Rocket League takes our best indie game award for 2015.

Honorable Mention – Hotline Miami 2

Best Story – Rise of the Tomb Raider

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Dean – Story is something that has been lost in many games due to the removal of single player campaigns, which makes strictly single player experiences all the more rare. Thankfully, there are still games out there like Rise of the Tomb Raider that focus on an interesting story that spans the entire experience.

Serving as an excellent follow-up to Lara’s first adventure in the reboot, Rise of the Tomb Raider provides gamers with a much more confident Lara in a story that feels like a very natural progression of the character’s story arc.

The game features very interesting characters that help to propel the plot forward in many different directions, with familial ties playing a very large role.

The plot does a great job at showing a Lara that continues to grow into the adventurer you know and love, while also still bringing in some crazy story elements that are very befitting of the series.

Honorable Mention – Tales from the Borderlands

Most Innovative – Splatoon

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – Innovation has been a been pretty tough to find in the gamin industry these past few years. Sure, you have the occasional game that bucks trends and goes its own way, but overall developers pump out safe bet sequels year after year. That’s just not Nintendo’s way though, as they have shown with games like Splatoon.

From the moment it was first announced it was obvious that Splatoon was something a little different. Playing like a normal third-person shooter, the mechanics were turned on their head with a few shifts to the experience.

You weren’t just a normal person running around a battlefield here. Instead you were an Inkling, a kid who can turn into a squid. And you weren’t really shooting each other, so much as you were covering the level in your team’s ink. This was the main goal of the game, to own most of the map, but it also helped you, as you could swim faster through your own ink color.

All of these innovations created our favorite shooter for 2015, but they also showed that this game was the most innovative of the year.

Honorable Mention – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Best of the Worst

Most Disappointing – Star Wars Battlefront

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – Oh man, was I excited for Star Wars Battlefront. I had played hundreds of hours of the old games and was really excited to see a new one arrive. I even played the game at conventions and during the beta, coming away impressed each time.

However, something lingered in the background, some feeling that this might be all that the game has to offer. When it finally hit that feeling was both confirmed, and shown to not truly encompass the problems with this game.

A paltry selection of maps and gamemodes combined with a complete lack of a single player campaign to create a $60 game that felt like a budget title. Seeing all of the advertisements for the Season Pass, with its promised infusion of content that probably should have been in the base game, really didn’t help things.

Eventually, after just a few hours with the game, many abandoned it entirely, only planning to check it out after EA and DICE have retooled a bit. What was once one of the most highly anticipated games of the year had become its most disappointing very quickly.

Honorable Mention – The Order: 1886

Worst Launch – Batman: Arkham Knight on PC

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Kyle – PC players expect just a few things out of console ports, that the game works, and that it runs at least on-par with its console versions. Batman: Arkham Knight did neither. The game had visual problems galore, with certain effects turned off or toned down, even to levels below those found on PS4. On top of this came stuttering and other sorts of glitches that truly damaged the overall experience.

Eventually things got so bad that WB and Rocksteady ended up having to pull it from all PC markets, a bold and almost unprecedented move that left many with a totally broken game. Fixes were eventually issued, but it was too little, and far too late as the hype had been replaced by bitter thoughts and feelings.

The game was fantastic, there is no doubt about that, but when it’s practically unplayable on what should be the defining platform for the game, the entire narrative switches. I’ve yet to even go back to what should have been one of my favorite games of the year, the feelings are just that ingrained.

Game of the Year

Game of the Year – Fallout 4

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

Mike – A lot of fantastic and varied types of games came out in 2015, but it’s hard to think of one that had the same kind of hype and build-up as Fallout 4. Bethesda gave us the masterpiece that was Fallout 3 in 2008 before handing the reigns over to Obsidian Entertainment for Fallout: New Vegas in 2010, but it had been 5 very long years since fans got to dive back into the series’ amazing post-apocalyptic world.

Thankfully, Fallout 4 lived up to the hype and then some when it finally launched this year. While the graphics initially had people scratching their heads from a technical standpoint, just spending a couple of hours in the game’s incredibly atmospheric world makes you quickly realize that you’re playing something truly special. Bethesda did a fantastic job of creating a post-nuclear Boston, MA, with many of the area’s most popular landmarks being faithfully recreated in a very bleak new way that was consistently jaw-dropping to behold.

The game also brought a number of big improvements to the series, such as better gunplay, deeper item customization and an addicting new base building system that you can easily spend dozens upon dozens of hours with alone. The handful of warring factions that you can join all have their own pros and cons in the grand scheme of things, and the fact that the game really makes a strong case for sticking with any one of them right to the bitter end is also a testament to the game’s excellent writing. Plain and simple, Fallout 4 is a phenomenal experience and the best that gaming had to offer in 2015.

Honorable Mentions – Rocket League, The Witcher 3

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

2015 definitely was one of the more diverse gaming years in awhile, which not only brought us some major followups to long running franchises, but also some newcomers that managed to stand out from the pack.

This extended to the announcements we got this year, donned by some as the Year of Dreams, with pipedream announcements like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue 3 being announced. However, this does not overshadow the actual 2015 releases, as they more than held their own with superb releases all through the year on basically every platform.

The sheer number of quality release after quality release even made it hard to play all the big games. As a result, I haven’t got the chance yet to play some big titles like Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as well as only completing part of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to where I don’t know how to rank it yet. Regardless, the games I did get to play were mostly fantastic. PC will also be excluded from this list though due to not having a gaming PC, but each of the other platforms will be taken in account.

Taking all of that into account, here is my top 10 games that released in 2015.

Honorable Mentions: Madden 16, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

10. Bloodborne
9. Halo 5: Guardians
8. Splatoon
7. Star Wars Battlefront
6. Mortal Kombat X
5. Xenoblade Chronicles X
4. Super Mario Maker
3. Batman: Arkham Knight
2. Life is Strange
1. Rise of the Tomb Raider

Kyle

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

There is no way that I would have thought a small, indie game about cars playing soccer would ever be my personal game of the year. Even seeing the trailers before release, I wrote the game off as something that would never pique my interest. However, the blissful simplicity of its game design, coupled with the amazing support of the developer has cemented Rocket League as my favorite game of the year.

Many more hours of work went into crafting the massive world of Fallout 4, and while that game is certainly excellent and will go on to be remembered as such for some time, there’s just something amazingly fun about Rocket League that still has me jumping on for a few matches nearly every day. The real joy comes when you begin to develop your skills, adding new tricks to your arsenal that would have made your former self stare in amazement. And with a budding eSports scene forming around the game, it looks like Rocket League will be here to stay.

However, while Rocket League is definitely my top pick, 2015 has been a an all around quality year for video games. Fallout 4 largely lived up to the extremely high expectations, delivering another amazing slice of post-apocalyptic gameplay. Tales from the Borderlands cemented Telltale’s place as one of gaming’s finest storytellers. GTA V hit the PC, delivering on a lot of the promise the original release struggled with. MGS V revolutionized the series, while missing the mark on the story front (which is why the game places so low on my list), and in Nintendo’s corner we had the amazingly fresh Splatoon, and the stunningly retro Super Mario Maker. Halo 5 brought back the glory of arena-style shooting, though the campaign left a lot to be desired.

After a hugely disappointing 2014, full of broken games and under performing releases, 2015 came back with a vengeance. Let’s hope that 2016 continues this trend.

10. Rare Replay
9. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
8. Halo 5: Guardians
7. Super Mario Maker
6. Splatoon
5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
4. GTA V PC
3. Tales from the Borderlands
2. Fallout 4
1. Rocket League

Games of the Year 2015 Articles  Xbox One PS4 Nintendo

2015 was a far more enjoyable year of gaming compared to 2014. There were not as many re-releases flooding the market and a number of actual new games were released. Not to mention the games out this year were mostly working upon arrival. Halo 5: Guardians and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate weren’t as broken as Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Assassin’s Creed Unity.

I also admired the diversity of the games that were available in 2015. It wasn’t just a year full of AAA first-person shooters as a number of games from different genres were out all year around. I would have liked to have seen more first-party exclusives from Sony on the PS4, but it looks like they’re saving all of their big guns for 2016.

Bear in mind, I’m a gamer that plays on PS4 and Xbox One mostly. Sadly, you won’t see any games from other platforms. I also missed out on some big games too.Without further ado, here is my top 10.

Honorable mentions: Rare Replay, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

10. Bloodborne
9. Helldivers
8. Halo 5: Guardians
7. Mortal Kombat X
6. Batman: Arkham Knight
5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
4. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
3. Until Dawn
2. Rise of the Tomb Raider
1. Fallout 4

    I pretty much agree with everything here. 2015 was fantastic. Next year is even better. Happy New Year to all and see you in 2016.

  • Terminator

    I agree with almost everything in here. This year was superb! Cant wait for next year…only a few more hours left!

    Now let me get my popcorn because the “fireworks” are going to be epic in this comment section.

  • Tga215

    Awesome year for games

  • Guest

    For me, this was a good year for gamers. 2016 looks like another good year.
    I think there will be plenty of good games coming up, each platforms have good exclusive game. There will be a new way of playing games with VR. Nintendo will announce what’s NX all about…

    Happy New Year to attackofthefanboy and everyone commenting on this site…

  • Allen

    Nope lol not at all. PS4 had a way better year, exclusives, exclusive content, console features, ps+, PSN stability. PS4 all the way with a nod to WiiU exclusives

    • HardWorkingFamilyMan

      Haha it’s obvious to everyone but a few of you PS lovers. Get over it and realize Xbox destroyed Sony this year. I think the PS4 will bounce back in 2016. It has to do better because 2015 was a disaster. I own both consoles so I’m rootin for both to dominate

      • Allen

        Obvious to everyone…that picked up PS4 over Xbox. BAM. U.S. & world wide Xbox is put in its place.

        But Happy New Year anyways

        • HardWorkingFamilyMan

          Console sales has nothing to do with this argument. I know the numbers and I’m part of both. When we talk about overall experience of online and quality of games then it’s MS by a long shot.

          Happy New Year to you to buddy.

      • Name

        This whole article is as delusional as you. Xbox sold like crap along with its single mediocre exclusive (halo 5) that has well been accepted by the ENTIRE gaming community as a flop. Not even in the top 10 holiday sales list. How anyone can try to claim this year a success for Xbox is just purely in denial. Sony annihilating Xbox in sales. Those “few” of us…is actually the whole world jokes on you dude. Maybe next year your parents will love you enough to put a PS4 under your Christmas tree so you can crawl out of your dark cave of denial and come live in the real world with the rest of us.

        • HardWorkingFamilyMan

          PS4 sold more?? Thanks for that late breaking news buddy. Haha. Do you not read? I have a PS4. Haha what a choad.

          This article has nothing to do with sales, true both me and you were blinded by PS4’s “Greatness” adds. Boy were we stupid. PS4 is garbage right now and it has been since launch. It’s ok to admit it because I have faith with everyone bitching about how terrible PS4 is that they will step up their game.

          As for Halo 5, the only exclusive game on PS4 that sold more was Bloodborne and we all know how redundant that game was, and the reason I say was is because nobody plays that 12fps hack-n-slash anymore. We were just excited about that game because we had literally nothing else and still don’t. So your not fooling anyone with your tough guy act of lie and wishful thinking.

          Trust me, I’m with you, I want something “Great” but right now it’s been nothing but shit, shit and more shit. Happy New Year buddy.

          • FloridaSun72

            With all that shit hes mad cause his diapers full lol Somebody got a full dipey?

          • ?????

            How you been doing!? Is this the original ?????

          • Guest

            This is ?????. But he wasn’t too far away. He has many different Disqus account like Darth Vader, RobotGolf and others…

          • ?????

            At least I actually make good arguments. Can’t say the same for Robot Golf. As for Darth, don’t know much about him. But nice try Guest. :^)

          • Guest

            It’s called multiple-personality disorder. You remember when you created Disqus account to impersonate Allen, Hoppsy and other PS fans?

          • ?????

            Never did that. But that was funny seeing clones of others. He should have done that to the PC guy too.

          • ?????

            I’m fine Allen. Happy New Year.

          • Allen

            You too

          • Tomaterrrx

            All fanboys are terrible, but Sony fanboys are the most hypocritical. They call others who decided to get an Xbox instead of a PS4 ‘Xboners’ and ‘Xbricks’ and then say they are more mature.

        • ?????

          Sales don’t equal quality bub. Only Playtwats think that. Halo 5 was mediocre? Opinion, as many also seem to say Halo 5 is addicting. It won October NPD even after just 4 days of release, and made more money opening week than any other Halo to date.
          Poor PS fanboys. They think anyone who doesn’t worship Sony is in denial of reality. Just take a look in the mirror. :^)

          • Guest

            lol that was funny. First saying sales doesn’t equals quality and then using sales to show Halo 5’s “quality”.

            Your sense of logic is as brilliant as ever… :)

          • ?????

            Oh, Guest. Dumb, dumb Guest. You really need reading comprehension.
            He said Halo 5 was a flop. He meant that it wasn’t successful. But it was according to sales. Being good is subjective, but it’s success in sales wasn’t, in which he referred to. Furthermore, he went on to say its no in the top 10 holiday sale list. That seals the fact that he was talking about sales. Facts disprove that as it made more money than any other Halo in the first week to date.

            Oh Guest. Don’t you throw a tantrum now. You might resort to copying my name again. :^)

          • Guest

            lol I didn’t even read that guy’s post. It just looked like you were replying to the “Halo 5 was mediocre” question? You went from saying it was an opinion straight into sales numbers. Maybe you should express yourself better…

            Oh and btw a game being successful is subjective.
            He wasn’t just talking about the money brought in on the first week but the overall success of the game and that also includes critical success (referring to the quality) as well as the holiday sales list. Now I agree, it’s subjective but you haven’t proven or disproven anything.

            btw you do know that the “most money brought in” includes hardware sales. They released a lot of numbers like the number of REQ packs (microtransaction) sold but never actually mention the number of copies sold. It sold the least (by quite a margin) for any main Halo in the UK.

            I also saw you started posting again with different user tag (Yo Dawg). So after using all different disqus account (Darth Vader, RobotGolf…) you are back to your old ways? Ah little xbot when will you grow up.

          • ?????

            What different accounts? lol I can’t believe you’re still on that! Surely you have proof of these claims?
            Facts are facts, it brought in the most money in opening week for any Halo ever.

          • FloridaSun72

            Sigh…another xtard. Seriously what is it with the people that buy MS? They are all the same kinda retard lol

          • ?????

            Says the person that calls people “Xtards”. lol. The PS community so so cancerous and immature. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Yet the xtards are the ones constantly struggling for attention

          • ?????

            And the PS fanboys are quick to damage control any good news from Xbox. Go back to your Yoshida shrine, Moronkeen. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            What good news? That your only ahead of the Wii U by a couple million? lol

          • Guest

            Yeah it’s really strange. Some of these xbots lie all the time, use false data, make fake reviews of PS4 games, some xbot youtuber even started pretending to be a girl probably just to get attention.

            Looks like they are ready to do anything to defend their favourite toy.

          • ?????

            Just like PS fanboys.
            Oh but wait, anyone with a PS4 is surely innocent and not a fanboy in your eyes, right N@zi? :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Thats exactly what it is….a toy. Anything that needs batteries to batteries to operate is a toy.

          • FloridaSun72

            Quality? ROFL!! That ugly plastic brick you call xbox one with its weak hardware(720p and 900p games in a new gen!!) and needing BATTERIES(like a kiddie toy) just to use the controllers. Hows that Kinect working for you?

            Meanwhile i bought one console thats been perfection from the start!

          • ?????

            Perfection? Paying for games you own is perfection? PSN going down is perfection? Things like the Camera being abandoned are perfection? Remasters and disappointing things like the Order are perfection?
            Hehe, still on batteries. What happens when your DS4 batteries crap out? Time to buy another controller! At least MS gives me an option. Fast dashboard, great exclusives, elite controller, BC, and my Kinect has been great btw. Good for going through the menu and voice commands and facial recognition.
            Do you own an Xbox Moronkeen? Surely you have if you trash it so much. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Doesnt matter what i reply your an xtard. You just cant help it

          • ?????

            Running away from the truth, huh? PS fanboys are always in denial. Sad, cancerous bunch. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Denial about what? Having the best next gen console thats CRUSHING MS’s Xbrick done? The Wii U has a better chance of catching that MS turd of a console than xbrickone ever has of catching the superior PS4. 33 MILLION AND COUNTING! XBOX ??? MILLION because never any official numbers! LOL

          • ?????

            More subjective opinions Moronkeen. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Do you even know what opinion means? PS4 crushing X1 in sales is a fact. The Wii U is right behind the X1 in consoles sold to consumers and is losing badly to the PS4 is another fact. 3rd party games look better on the PS4 is a fact. I could go on but im gonna let you look up what an opinion is compared to a fact.

          • Name

            So true dude…I own both systems and couldn’t believe the shit build quality of Xbox compared to the PS4. PS4 seems like a luxury item in comparison.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Do your research fanboy.
            1. Weak hardware? PS4’s is slightly better so shut up.
            2. Xbox has plenty of 1080p games. e.g, Halo, Tomb Raider, Forza. FYI PS4 has 720p/900p games as well you fool. If you really care about graphics get a gaming PC.
            3. The DS4 controller uses batteries as well, they are just built in. And just like AAs they die out and you’ll have to buy a new controller. At least the batteries last longer and I can replace them on my Xbox controller with rechargeable batteries for like $15. Stop being such a blind Sony fanboy. Look at your own console first before insulting a console you haven’t even used.
            4. The Kinect isn’t compulsory anymore so stop acting like it is. How is your Playstation Eye working out? Yet again, look at your own console. Both have ups and down. Deal with it.
            Perfection? What happened to PSN yesterday?

          • FloridaSun72

            Ummm my PS3 controllers were bought on release day and still work, never heard of anyones battery dying as u can charge them as you play or in rest mode. ….dont get salty because your sorry console comes with a “batteries not included” on its toybox.

          • Tomaterrrx

            The nature of batteries is that when you charge them a certain amount of times they die out and are won’t charge. You never heard that before? Why would I get salty. I can afford an x1 so I can easily afford rechargable batteries for £15 ($18-$20). Problem solved. No salt here bro. Keep dreaming. As for the dualshock 4 controllers, how long do they last on a single charge? 6-8 hours. You might as well keep the USB cable plugged in.
            I think your theory on anything with batteries is automatically a toy is total BS. You know what else uses batteries? TV remotes, calculators, clocks. I think you need to rework that theory.

          • FloridaSun72

            If your gaming 8 hours straight you really need to re-evaluate your priorities

          • Tomaterrrx

            I didn’t say I play 8 hours straight. What I am saying is that I don’t want to reach fir a USB cable every 2-3 days to charge the damn thing which kind of defeats the point of it being a wireless controller.

          • FloridaSun72

            Just like i dont want to have to run out to buy batteries or chargeables.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Just buy them when you buy the console. Or when you want a new controller. Simple enough. No need to use your laziness as an excuse.

          • FloridaSun72

            Pass charging is much easier on power saver mode when im not gaming. If your sitting in one spot for 8 hours straight playing games you need to get a life

          • Tomaterrrx

            If anyone needs a life it is you. Y’know, the one who has logged in over 1500 comments on PS bias.

          • FloridaSun72

            More like 15000 but whos counting? Oh i guess you are.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Wtf are you on about? You’ve logged 1590 comments. And I didn’t count. I looked on a number on the screen for crying out loud.

          • FloridaSun72

            Just really lame having to shell out more money just to make the controller work…lol

          • Tomaterrrx

            So is having to plug a controller in every 8 hours, which kind of defeats the point of it being wireless.
            I also find it lame how you trash the X1 like you are on PS damage control. Did they pay you? You still haven’t hit me back with my other points. I got all day to listen to your bullshit.

          • FloridaSun72

            X1 is garbage. Nuff said.

          • Tomaterrrx

            You need to realise that it isn’t. Maybe you should try it, then your opinion would actually have some ground. It is also funny how I say you are on PS damage control and then you just happen to say X1 is garbage. You just making yourself look stupid by saying that. Real gamers know that both are good for their own reasons. That’s why you get both :) I still prefer my Xbox but I don’t hate the PS4.

          • FloridaSun72

            There is no reason to buy the X1 unless you are still playing Halo or Forza otherwise every multiplat is better on the PS4 and its getting more and better exclusives as 3rd parties will go with Sony because of the ever widening sales gap.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Forza or Halo isn’t the only reason. But that’s expected of you considering you obviously don’t own and X1.
            1. Better backwards compatability.
            2. Forza, Halo, Gears, ReCore, Quantum Break, Ori, Rare Replay, etc. Of course you won’t say those though because you are one of those delusional fanboys.
            3. Windows 10 integration and media.
            4. Constant updates with new features and UI is now faster than the PS4s. If you want proof just ask.
            5. Better media support. Argue all you want but X1 is superior to the PS4 in terms of media. I can plug my cable into the X1 and shit like that. I just have my PS4 for multiplats.
            It depends on preference. Yet you are too blind to realise that are’t you?

          • FloridaSun72

            Yawn. I got tons of superior options for media…._._

          • Tomaterrrx

            Right, that aren’t in the gaming market? I’m talking about gaming not everything else.

          • FloridaSun72

            No one knows what your talking about bro. Blah blah x1 damage control blah.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Everyone knows PCs are in the gaming market, idiot. Where have you been for the last 10 years?

        • FloridaSun72

          Well said. Dudes living in a fantasy world.

      • FloridaSun72

        With comments like this its obvious you do not own both systems and are an xbot idiot like the other 15 million Halo and Forza lovers

        • Tomaterrrx

          So everyone who own an Xbox is and idiot?

          • FloridaSun72

            How else do you explain people especially early adopters knowingly going with a console that was underpowered , had the worst reveal in gaming history , costing more due to lies about the importance of kinetic but still bought the x1 over the superior Ps4 ?

          • Tomaterrrx

            Maybe people bought it because they like Xbox exclusives better. Maybe they bought it because they want a good entertainment box. Maybe they bought it because they prefer the controller. The list goes on and on but you don’t seem the to get it.

            1. Sure it had a pretty crap release, but does it really matter now? Is that dumb DRM policy still here? No. Is the Kinect still compulsory? No. Is the 24 hour internet connection sign-up thingy still on? No. Stop using what the fanboys used in 2013. It is 2016. Get out of your cave for once and at least look at the Xbox One’s improvements.
            2. Underpowered? No it isn’t.I think what you mean is that it is slightly less powerful. Even the Wii U has very good looking games and that is much less powerful. It runs games fine. Lower resolution yes, but since when did a PS4 play every game 1080p. If you want a difference go 4k 60fps on some beastly gaming PC. You ponies act like your platform has the best specs when it really doesn’t.
            3. Stop babbling about the Kinect it isn’t necessary anymore. How many times do people have to say it to you. Open you eyes mordarkeen, it’ll be useful next time you try to trash another platform that isn’t Sony related.
            People knew that the Xbox One wasn’t going to be the same console in 2013 than a couple of months later. And it wasn’t, it is far better now. PS4 was winning in 2013 but they are so close now (apart from sales) and you can’t go wrong with either. Sony fanboys are the only thing that is making me dislike my PS4, fanboys like you.

    • Yo Dawg

      All of what you said is very subjective. Just like this one here. But I agree with him. I found Xbox to have more memorable exclusives this year. Not to mention how MS has fixed lots of things with the Xbox. BC, fast, easy to use dashboard, a new elite controller, 4 games a month with gold, they’ve done a lot to Xbox this year. Meanwhile on PS4 they still can’t figure out how to change my fauqing PSN name. Charging me for games I already own. $15 PS2 games. Saying their lineup is sparse. Piggy backing on 3rd party games. It’s been a very disappointing year for the PS4 considering how it was supposed to be a great one according to everyone last year.

      • FloridaSun72

        Xbox fixed so many things because so much was BROKEN to begin with or inept like the console itself. As for the PS2 games NO ONE is forcing you to pay for them so its a non issue. Its not integral like a Kinect was….and that was 100$ more they forced on early adopters.

        Ever hear the term if it aint broke dont fix it? 30 million sold says the PS4 doesnt need fixing….

        Meanwhile here comes the Wii U catching up to the X1….with a better lineup to boot.

        • ?????

          Hehe, Moronkeen at it again.
          Xbox was broken? Funny, mine worked just fine. You sure it wasn’t your imaginary Xbox?
          So what you’re saying is that since Sony’s in the lead they can just ignore the fanbase? Good one, Moronkeen.
          How’s the Wii U catching up to Xbox? Last I checked Xbox was around 17 to 18 million while Wii U is at 11 million. They get farther and farther. Keep crying. :^)

          • Allen

            PS4 simply is not backwards compatible, it’s a fact and Sony made it clear. People aren’t buying because of PS2 games ya know.

          • FloridaSun72

            Try almost 12 million Wii Us while the xbricks numbers are only a GUESS because in truth they are probably alot lower otherwise we would have heard something about sold to customer numbers in the last YEAR or so. So being only 6 million ahead of the Wii U or maybe 5 million is certainly NOTHING to brag about.

          • ?????

            So wait…you pick a guessed number for Wii U sales but nag on Xbox for guessed numbers?
            Hypocrisy runs deep in you Moronkeen. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            No guessing needed as Nintendo and Sonys numbers can be found with a simple google search. Whats MS got to hide? Probably the fact that outside of America that x1 is a dead platform and is only ahead of the Wii U by a couple million units??

  • HardWorkingFamilyMan

    Game….Set….Match….. Now step up your game Sony because you have millions of consoles sold with a lot of pissed of consumers, me being one of them.

    • Allen

      Step up? You can’t even come close to us. You are miles behind, like 15 million miles

      • HardWorkingFamilyMan

        Huh??? I have both and I know the truth. PS console is stronger and there’s no debate about it. XBox games are just a ton better right now and that also is a no debate. So I’m 15 million miles ahead and 15 million miles behind and right now it’s a lot more fun playing from behind.

        • FloridaSun72

          A ton bettter?? Like what? theres zero games on xbrick one i want to play but am looking forward to SFV, UC4, No Mans Sky, Deep Down etc etc

          • Tomaterrrx

            Of course you’d look forward to everything Playstation gives you and talk shit about everything Xbox gives you. You are being a Sony Sheep, taking in everything Sony throws at your mouth without giving a crap about what it is. Seriously, I love my PS4 but Uncharted and Bloodborne were the only PS exclusives I wanted in 2015 but U4 got delayed multiple times. No Man’s Sky looks great but then again it is too hyped like cough… cough The Order cough cough…

            You forgot massive upcoming titles like Gears 4, Crackdown 3, Quantum Break. I like my PS exclusives and my Xbox exclusives (I have both consoles) but I can get indy games on my phone thank you. Try harder Pony. Keeps me amused.

          • FloridaSun72

            No thanks, my PS4 and Wii U give me everything i could want and they look better on the PS4 as well.

          • Tomaterrrx

            I’m guessing you didn’t realise they are Xbox exclusives so how can they look better on PS4. And if you are talking about 3rd party, play on both consoles and look at them side by side for once which you probably haven’t done at a normal distance. Do you notice a differance? Nope.

            I have both consoles and I have done it so actually experience Xbox before you talk shit about it.

            P.S: If you don’t like Xbox exclusives because they are only on Xbox I would understand. You can’t get everything in life, no need to hate.

          • FloridaSun72

            Yeah because every xbot also has a PS4! lol

          • Tomaterrrx

            I didn’t say every Xbox one owner still has a PS4, did I? What I meant was that you are judging the Xbox without fully experiencing it.

          • FloridaSun72

            Why waste money on something thats marginally better(x1) than its previous incarnation(360)? PS4 and Wii U has everything i could ever want to play and the paltry few x1 console exclusives do not interest me.

            Just seems like all the xbot damage controllers back their nonsense starting with the “i own both consoles” phrase.

          • Tomaterrrx

            I say that to show that I have had experience with both of them. Then my opinions are actually unbias because I have both. You got a problem with that?

          • Tomaterrrx

            FYI I actually do have both. You got a problem with that? Having both means that I actually have experience with both. btw I didn’t actually want a PS4 in the first place but I got one for christmas last year and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Great console man. But I prefer my Xbox so deal with it.
            The Xbox One isn’t ‘marginally’ better than the 360. Where did you get that from, eh? Or did you just make it up. You probably haven’t tried any Xbox exclusives yet you don’t like them because they are on Xbox. Typical fanboy talk.

          • FloridaSun72

            Besides exclusives i have zero interest in on the x1 my owning PS4 and Wii U give me the best of everything. With the best graphical quality on 3rd party multis

          • Tomaterrrx

            So be it. You don’t want their exclusives. Fine by my. But you are wrong again on the multiplats part. PC whoops consoles ass in terms of graphics for 3rd party multiplats.

          • FloridaSun72

            Why does everyone bring in PC when defending the x1?

          • Tomaterrrx

            Because PC graphics are actually worth saying they are better than X1 and PS4. Also to show the Sony fanboys that PS4 isn’t the ‘ultimate gaming console’.

          • FloridaSun72

            PS4 is the ultimate gaming console. PCs arent sold as gaming consoles so out of the gaming console market its PS4 Wii U then way at the bottom is X1.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Your logic proves you are a delusional Pony:
            1. Since when was PS4 ‘the ultimate gaming console’? I’m having a laugh right now. How childish. PC have the same games and more exclusives so they are perfectly in the gaming console market. That is why some people invest in a PC rather than a PS/Xbox. That reason alone is enough.
            2. Your Pony logic practically states that: ‘The console with the most sales is the best.Then why is the Wii U ahead of X1 in your list? The X1 has sold more than the Wii U so doesn’t that mean it is second? Clearly it just shows your Sony bias. That is your list. Your opinion.

            Funny how you leave out PC just coz you know that it is a better gaming machine just so you can say ‘PS4 is the ultimate gaming console’.

          • FloridaSun72

            Last time i checked gamespot wasnt selling PCs as gaming consoles. So out of the available items being sold as gaming consoles PS4 is obviously the best with imo the Wii U second because of their great exclusive library and the X1 in 3rd as its a weaker version of the PS4 with exclusives that are just more of the same sequals.

          • Tomaterrrx

            What is wrong with sequels? Since when was bringing out a new game for a franchise a bad thing. You need to realise X1 has new IPs as well. Both do. PS has Horizon, No Man’s Sky etc. X1 has Quantum Break, ReCore etc. None released yet so can’t judge now.

            PCs are in the console market. Heck, the original Xbox was made up of old PCs put together. They may not be a gaming console specifically, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include it in this ‘console wars’ bullshit.

          • FloridaSun72

            You cant add PCs to the console war…..their not consoles. PC = Personal Computer not Console. They are computers that happen to play games and arent sold as video game consoles.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Did you even read what I said? PCs are still in the fuckin gaming market. PCs affect console sales. You really think PCs have nothing to do with game consoles?

          • FloridaSun72

            Nope. They dont usually come out of the box ready to game on and is not their primary function .

          • Tomaterrrx

            You still aren’t listening are you? PCs can play fucking games that means they are in the equation even if that is not their primary function.

          • FloridaSun72

            Whatever. If it makes you feel better about buying the inferior x1 then go with it.

          • Tomaterrrx

            So your in denial now? I make a point you can’t go up a against so you decide to say ‘whatever’? Great, makes pissing off the fanboys easier.

          • FloridaSun72

            Personal computers are customizable to play games. PS4 does it because its what its built to do.

            And your point is???
            Both play games. Who cares if it was ‘built’ for it. Then why do PC games perform better than PS4 multiplats?

          • FloridaSun72

            Out of the items being sold as gaming consoles yes the PS4 is the ultimate.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Right, of course it is…*sigh*. That is your opinion fair enough but that has got nothing to do with my comment so actually try and give me some points instead of blankly stating your opinion. I hate how fanboys think they have the ‘ultimate gaming system’. Why’d you have a Wii U then??? And actually put effort into your pathetic replies you are just making yourself look dumb.

          • FloridaSun72

            Wii U has an incredible library of console exclusives that imo rival the X1s. Funny its underpowered yet easily does 1080p/60fps but X1 cannot consistently.

          • Tomaterrrx

            The reason why it can do 1080p/60fps is because the actual graphics are worse you idiot. You can get 1080/60fps on Super Mario 64 but does the game look pretty today? No. Wii U has a specific art style. It doesn’t go for realism. X1 still has better graphics you pleb.

          • FloridaSun72

            But not better resolution . Wii u s library is better too.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Who gives a shit about resolution. If the actual graphics are mediocre then what is the point in 1080p. Wii U by itself has a very limited library. Exclusives are the only thing it has got and it has zero third party support. Troll harder…

          • FloridaSun72

            But they are totally awesome exclusives.

          • Tomaterrrx

            Stop changing the subject. I don’t care if they are good or not. I have a PS4 and XONE already so plenty of exclusives for me. Your point was about graphics so talk about that. So actually reply with some thought. If makes the ponies look smarter.

          • FloridaSun72

            Yeah because all X1 owners have a pS4……riiiigghht.

          • Tomaterrrx

            You’ve said this before so stop repeating yourself. I was talking about my self not everyone else.

          • FloridaSun72

            I will take a pass on those x1 exclusives. Not my kind of games

          • Tomaterrrx

            Just because you don’t like them doesn’t mean they aren’t better. Try to realise that, everyone has an opinion on their type of games.

            I will pick up U4 and NMS because they look great. I prefer my Xbox games but that is my opinion. k?

  • Mr Xrat

    Xbone had such a great year its best game was one of the 2D artsy platformers Xbox fanboys hate that’s also on PC.

  • jdc88

    It was an awesome year for gamers. Now I have a ps4. I don’t own an Xbox one. But even I agree Xbox was the better console this year. They kept adding new features with updates about every month.

    The only thing I liked what sony added this year was communities. Can we please have folders to separate and find our games quickers. Also can we add more media support. I have burned discs that the ps3 can read that ps4 can’t

  • jdc88

    Also I have to talk about this game. If I could have picked the winners I would have gave best story and best new IP and maybe if it can win best indie(dontnod is a small company) to Life is Strange. This game came out of nowhere and it turned out to be so good. Thousands of ppl fell in love with the Max(never Maxine) Chloe and the rest of the crew, and the story. I wouldn’t say it’s game of the year but it’s up there. I would put it at 4.

  • ?????

    Get ready for the “MUH SALES!!!1” comments. :^)

    • FloridaSun72

      Xbrick did such a terrible job initially they couldnt go anywhere but up……so they basically won by default(and opinion)

      • ?????

        Somebody’s angry. U mad? :^)

        • FloridaSun72

          Nope but all you XBOT fanboys will be when theres no more consoles from MS after the debacle that is the xbrick one. Wii U is catching up hows so whats that tell ya?

          • ?????

            Selling better than the 360 Moronkeen. Ain’t going anywhere.
            Meanwhile, here you are damage controlling because Xbox won POTY here. Don’t worry, have a tissue, Moronkeen. :^)

          • Guest

            “Xbox won POTY here”
            Just like how Rocket League beat Halo 5 for multiplayer of the year and Splatoon beat Halo 5 for best shooter. And the “biggest” Halo in history ended up with nothing.
            Eitherway all this remains the opinion of a single person.

          • ?????

            Lol, I love how you try to bring that in here. You PS fanboys are out in full force today. :^)

          • Guest

            Bring what here, little xbot?
            That POTY is just an opinion or did I upset you when I said the “biggest” Halo in history got nothing (not even best of Xbox- beaten by Ori)?

          • ?????

            Nope, that you brought in Halo 5 just to get on my nerves little N@zi. :^)

          • Guest

            Did you bring in POTY to get on Mordarkeen’s nerve? :)

          • ?????

            He came here because it was already on his nerves Guest, hence his damage control. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            You think this gets on my nerves? Lol i actually have a life and theres alot bigger things to worry about. I come here because its fun watching xbots do damage control for that joke of a company MS with a failure of a next gen console.

          • Name

            You just got your ass handed to you is what just happened there.

          • ?????

            Wrong again, Guest. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Cant damage control perfection! MS is constantly updating that xturd one because it sucks so bad as a console.

          • ?????

            Of course. So improving something means that it sucks. Classical Playtwat logic. Enjoy those stability updates, Moronkeen. :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            No but having to constantly improve something that sucked on release doesnt mean it sucks any less now.

          • FloridaSun72

            To take a page out of your book “poty is just someones opinion

  • John C

    I think many of us can agree that console wars are stupid. If you love a company like MS or Sony and they make a big mistake, then you should express your disappointment to them. We should all expect these companies to fix their mistakes. Did Xbox One have the best year? It all depends on what you like.

  • Isaac

    Come on u can’t get the game right don’t mention its madden NFL 16 not 15 why even mention wen u kno nothing about the genre Rocket league lmao

  • Isaac

    Really arguing about awards that are won on this stupid page and really mean nothing

  • yodelayheehee

    lol @ xbone as platform of year. fixing bugs, selling kinect-less consoles, and a standard lineup of microsoft exclusives (with the exception of timed-exclusive tomb raider) are desperate rationalizations of your fanboy fav. backwards compatibility is cool, though.

    REAL PLATFORM OF THE YEAR: THE NEW 3DS

  • Nettrick Nowan

    “headlining what Microsoft quite correctly referred to as the best games lineup in Xbox history” Subjective at best and did sales back that up?
