2015 was a huge year for that gaming community. It saw the true rise of huge open world experiences that deliver fantastic experiences, whilst giving us smaller experiences worth perhaps the most hardcore gamer's attention. We got some wonderful games this coming year along with a few stinkers and this article is going to cover everything. Before we begin I would like to let everyone know that I did not play all the games that was released this season, so if your favorite game isn't getting a nod, this is because I simply didn't listen to it. Three huge games I did not get to this year were Dying Light, Metal Gear Solid V, and most recently Just Cause 3. Furthermore, i only own a PS4 and X-Box One, so PC exclusives won't be relevant to this article.

Let's get some disappointments dealt with. There were many games that were broken upon release or had some issues, although some were just a complete letdown. These are my 3 most disappointing games of 2015.

3. Evolve - Yes, Evolve arrived on the scene early on in 2015 and it was a hugely anticipated game that wished to focus on cooperative play. It was very limited in modes, guns, characters, and maps. Which made it easy put down the controller and move to the next game. I lost all curiosity about about a week and so did the rest of the world. It will be interesting to see what are the developer will do by having an inevitable sequel.

2. Batman: Arkham Knight - The fourth and 'final' entry in Rocksteady's superb action/adventure series was obviously a fun time in small doses, but ultimately failed at bringing Batman for the new generation in a fashion that blew expectations. It seemed like the game was the first three all assembled with better graphics along with a lousy attempt at adding the batmobile. Even though the game is certainly not bad, it made a bunch to be desired.

1. The Order 1886 - One of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 games that was announced a couple years back released with a whimper. The third person shooter period piece became the best looking game of the year that you barely played. The 4 hour experience was much more of a cutscene with gameplay scattered in than the other way around.

Now let us get to the best games of the season!

10. Rocket League - This is a small game that came out of nowhere and I sunk unexpecting hours in it. It's a fun game to take a seat and play in long sessions or in quick burst. It absolutely was a pleasure to play and is still fantastic several months down the line.

9. Madden 16 - Okay, thus, making this the guilty pleasure game in a way. I love football and I love Madden. I play in the franchise every single year and put in hundreds of hours in it. It was another step-above it's predecessor and puts foundations for the next installment.

8. Halo 5 - The first Halo on the new X-Box provides a great experience with an enjoyable single player and very competitive multiplayer. While the actual story line is a bit underwhelming, the gameplay is second to none. Multiplayer is still going strong and that i find myself returning every few days to play a few matches.

7. Star Wars Battlefront - While I was obviously a little disappointed with all the casualness of the game and not enough content, Battlefront is an absolute joy to try out. It's one of the best looking games That i have ever seen and lays the ground for a better sequel.

6. Rainbow Six: Siege - Siege provided my serious multiplayer itch that wasn't fulfilled by the mediocre Battlefield Hardline. It is rather tactical and plays terrifically each match. This process takes understanding the game to become good at it and that i can't love that enough.

5. Until Dawn - Maybe the biggest surprise of year, Sony didn't know what they had with this game. It's a beautiful looking game that plays like your run of the mill teen horror story, however with a great twist mid way through. The selections you make actually modify the game, REALLY.

4. Rise of the Tomb Raider - This sequel improves about the Tomb Raider reboot in most way and is merely a breath of outdoors to play a somewhat linear story driven experience. Although The manufacturers should story was a bit better, it is a fun game nonetheless.

3. Fallout 4 - Your fourth entry in this huge franchise didn't exist until about six months ago when it was suddenly announced and then released this November. It's a great game which is more of the same. Even though it looses it's steam about thirty hours involved with it, it's a hell of an experience that should be on everybody's shelf.

2. The Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt is an amazing game that will a bunch of things to varying levels of success. The combat and movement would be my biggest gripe of the game, but it's very easy to overlook when you have this colossal game with endless possibilities.

1. Bloodborne - Not merely is Bloodborne my bet on the year, it's also my biggest surprise of year. While I have played the souls games, Irrrve never really got into them, but Bloodborne completely captivated me. While it's story makes work with it and it ultimately isn't relevant, oahu is the gameplay that kept me returning to the game. I couldn't stop thinking and playing this game. It's the perfect challenge of course, if your open to different varieties of games, I would 100% recommend obtaining Bloodborne.
