Default Our Favorite Games of 2015

Please share with us your thoughts on your favorite gaming moments, and your favorite games of 2015. I've learned a lot about games that flew under my radar from members of this forum over the last few years, so I'm really interested in hearing from as many people as possible. I figure this might be particularly useful for some of us right now since the Holiday sales are about to start (Steam Winter Sale tomorrow).

Please use spoiler tags where appropriate, and remember we're in the Game Room here, not Smackdown. All platforms welcome - consoles, PC, mobile, handhels, tabletop, whatever!

Until Dawn
If you like David Cage games and horror, this is for you. Better writing than Cage games by a mile

Tales from the Borderlands
Walking Dead is still my favorite Telltale game, but this is by far the funniest. I would bet non Borderlands fans would like this too.

Wolfenstein Old Blood
I enjoyed this better than New Order.

And my GOTY
Mad Max
Cool open world, combat is very satisfying, as is the car combat and the story was really good. I didn't get any of the bugs that I guess we're pretty prevalent.

Honorable mentions (pretty much remasters that were done well)
God of War 3
Looked phenomenal.

Uncharted Trilogy
Only played 1 and 2 so far but sooo good.

Gears Ultimate Edition
Still sad I bet we're not getting 2, and more importantly, 3.

Arkham Knight
Lame main villain and no good boss battles aside, decent conclusion to the trilogy and combat was still aces. I actually liked the Batmobile stuff...mostly. Fuck the season pass. Bought it and I'm the dumbass for doing so. It's the main reason it's an honorable mention and not on the good list.

I don't follow the JRPG scene anymore, so I was not aware any of the Tales of games had come to Steam. Did some looking in on this game, and I've now added it to my wishlist.

Great open world RPG, good story, hard choices that have real consequences in a nice dark medieval world. It's fun and it's massive.
