2015 has been a great year for us. The games have been amazing, and the experiences have left us loving what we do even more.

So many games have come and gone, and so many memories still stay in our hearts till today. So to pay tribute to those games that left us speechless, crying, in cold sweats, and completely blown away, we want to recognise them in an old-time fashion, with awards. Here are our best games of 2015.

Best Sports and Racing

Forza Motorsport 6

Forza Motorsport 62015 was full of great sports games like FIFA 16 and PES 2016, but out of all the sport and racing games we played, Forza Motorsport 6 was surely the best. Its massive car roster and stunning tracks made it one of the best racing games on Xbox One, and one of the best in the series.

Runner Up: Rocket League

Best RPG

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

There is no doubt that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the best RPG of the year. Its stunning narrative and deep story captivated gamers all over the world and broke hearts as its tough decision-making and breath-taking world drew us into a world waged in war, full of hidden secrets and loveable characters.

Runner Up: Bloodborne

Best Shooter

Halo 5: Guardians

Halo 5

Besides its rocky storyline, Halo 5: Guardians is one of the best in the series. Its killer campaign, and new introduction of its Warzone mode, has made it one of the best shooters on the Xbox one. I will never forget my time with Halo 5: Guardians as it did not try too hard, and got it right anyway.

Runner Up: Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Best Indie Game

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest

There were very little indie games in 2015 that really made an impact, Ori and the Blind Forest on the other hand made it hard not to want to own an Xbox One. Its spectacular world and art direction was one of a kind, and we hope to see more games like it in the future.

Runner Up: Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

Best Mobile/Handheld Game

The Room 3

The Room 3

I very seldom play mobile games, but I have been addicted to The Room series for some time now. When the Room 3 released, it broke all its boundaries and offered one of the best puzzles experiences on any platform. It was not only gorgeous to look at, but it was full of mind bending puzzles that really brought out the problem solver in all of us.

Runner Up: Fallout Shelter

Best Score/Soundtrack

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Playing through Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture was one thing, but its musical score was another. The entire soundtrack was composed by Jessica Curry, and played throughout the game. At times you would get chills, and at times you would shed a tear, truly magical.

Runner Up: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Best Action Adventure

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider

If there was one game on the Xbox One this year that left me wanting more, it was Rise of the Tomb Raider.

From start to finish it was filled with action and suspense, as Lara sets out to track down the secret of immortality and prove to the world that her father was not wrong about it. Every moment was better than the last, and the entire game was one epic rollercoaster ride of stunning action.

Runner Up: Batman: Arkham Knight

Best Fighting Game

Mortal Kombat X


Although the fighting games were lacking in 2015, Mortal Kombat X was probably the best blood bath of the year. Its showstopper roster of characters and great story mode was one of the best in the series.


Runner Up: Guilty Gear

Best Online Game

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

The Elder Scrolls Online launched back in 2014 as a paid module, with a planned release for 2015 on consoles. The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited is one of the best MMOs to date with its massive open world that spans the entire world of Tamriel. It is truly the best Elder Scrolls experience to date

Runner Up: Destiny: The Taken King

Biggest Disappointment

Just Cause 3

Just cause 3

We were so excited to play Just Cause 3 when it launched, but instead we were welcomed to a buggy hot mess that could not keep up with a simple explosion.

Just Cause 3 is our biggest disappointment of 2015, because it was broken. We expected more from it, but also, and this is my breaking point, it corrupted my save in the end.

Runner Up: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Best DLC

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone

Hearts of Stone

We seldom get to experience DLC that actually adds content to the game. Sometimes we get crappy skins, and maps that are useless in the end. But The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone was a one of a kind experience. It added tons of hours to the already spectacular experience, and gave us new quests to undertake that was like nothing we had every experienced in the game before.

Runner Up: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters

Most Anticipated Game Of 2016

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III has to be our most anticipated title for 2016. As a long running Dark Souls fan, we will finally be able to experience a true Dark Souls experience running on new hardware, because Scholar of the First Sin was a clear cash cow, and that makes me happy. The game is looking great and I am so ready to experience death at its finest.

Runner Up: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Best Art Direction



Bloodborne came so close to winning our overall game of the year award, but when we looked back at art direction, it was clear that it was one of the creepiest, yet most intriguing games of the year. Thank you for looking so stunning.

Runner Up: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Game of the Year 2015

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Deciding on a Game of the Year winner was extremely tough.

The Witcher 3, Batman Arkham Knight, and Bloodborne all came close. In the end Rise of the Tomb Raider blew us away.

It lost its multiplayer, and focused mainly on its single player experience which I admire from a game in 2015. Those of you who have not played the game, best you get an Xbox One, or just sit it out and wait until it releases on your platform sometime in 2016.
