    A tough one for me because I only play a handful of games a year. Games that appeal to me I notice long before they are released and I pretty much ignore everything else. Therefore I cannot say whether these are the best games released in the year but...

    The Witcher 3 = 150 Hours Played
    The Phantom Pain = 300 Hours Played
    Batman Arkham Knight = 60 Hours played (so far)

    All great games with great production values, art style and gameplay.

    You made me realize that I upgraded my PC a year ago and then I haven't played almost anything new. :rolleyes: I'm fairly interested in The Phantom Pain, Just Cause 3 and Star Wars Battlefront, but I'm waiting for the prices to come down.

    The only new AAA title I've played is Assassin's Creed Syndicate and I am loving it. It shows how good Unity could have been, but for the shambolic technical implementation. A few things have actually been simplified a little in this year's installment, but it still has great visual design, decent story, fun gameplay, good side missions that make a lot of sense considering the settings...

    I've also played a several newer indie games, but few really stand out. TIS-100 does, though. It's barely a game, yet it manages to have a cool atmosphere.

    That's two candidates from me. :)

    Tough one. There were not very many games that could capture my attention for long; I quickly got bored, which does not bode well for their GOTY potential. I wish there were more managing/tycoon/sim games out there.

    In no particular order:
    World of Warships (PC) has me coming back
    Cities Skylines (PC) is a worthy successor of SC4 which is a lot of fun.
    Pillars of Eternity (PC) truly nostalgic fun in a contemporary game!

    Looking back on this year, it appears that I've only played 2 games that were officially released in 2015. And, both of these, IMHO, warrant the GOTY award:

    1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PC)
    2. Rise of the Tomb Raider (XBOX One)

    EDIT: With Calliers' permission...

    3. Destiny: The Taken King (XBOX One)

    NOTE: These are the versions I played.

    I've done a LOT of video gaming, though. But, I picked up an XBOX One in early summer and started in on Destiny. That has eaten up a lot of my gaming time.

    I've also played a lot of TW3, but, pulled off of it after there were so many huge patches early on. I actually still have to complete it after getting side-tracked with other games.

    I'm presently playing AC: Rogue and enjoying it just as much as I did AC: Blackflag. Since it was released in Nov. 2014, it can't be included in this list.

    Then you may include Destiny: The Taken King, not so?

    Good point, but, in the past I've never included "add-ons" or DLC to an original release. But, if it can be included, then I'll make it so. :)

    Fallout 4 (PS4)
    Batman Arkham Knight: (PS4)
    Until Dawn (PS4)

    A shout-out to Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which was beaten by almost nothing by Until Dawn, but the freshness and the awesome storytelling in Until Dawn won :)
