2015 Is Chock-Full Of GotY Candidates

"Now that we're a little past the half way point of 2015, it's time to look back and see what titles can start to contend for the crown of best in 2015. Every year around this time there's usually one or two games that stick out to me as real contenders, but this year there's already double that, with the future looking even brighter. Let's dive in a take a look at what games I have targeted."

Right now Witcher 3 is my GOTY

Rimeskeem1253d ago

Witcher 3
Fallout 4


NinjaRichParty1253d ago

Witcher 3
Arkham Knight (yeah I know boo)
Rocket League

Those are mine! Plus like I say in the article, with MGSV and Fallout 4 coming, I am really digging this year. Haha.

KindaGrump1253d ago


I cannot wait for Fallout 4. Gonna be all over it when it launches.

Bloodborne, the only game that was polished, and it did not feel bloated with lame missions and sidequests.

That's why Bloodborne is game of the year, fact.

NinjaRichParty1253d ago


That's what's leading for me right now. Although Rocket League is creeping up reeeally fast. Most pure fun I've had in a long time.

Here's my list:

Her Story
Ori and the Blind Forest
Witcher 3

I'm really loving what 2015 has brought to the table. Can't wait for the rest of the year.

NinjaRichParty1253d ago

Aww man. I wanna try Her Story. I've heard it's a pretty cool experience. I gotta get into Ori too. It'll be interesting to see if Bloodborne will break into anyone's GOTY award above Witcher 3 and the like. It seems like it's in people's group, but I wonder if it can win out at the end of the year.

GamingChip791253d ago

Yeah, 2015 has been pretty fruitful when it comes to solid titles. My overall list looks a lot like what's already listed, so I'll refrain from doing that.

Witcher 3 has gotta be my number one though. That world was something special and it just keeps going on. I can't wait for that damn DLC to hit.

1. Having played batman for a couple hours today on my PS4, I would say it definitely belongs in the GOTY conversation. I would have said no just yesterday because WB screwed PC gamers badly but having played it, it is definitely up there with the Witcher 3 as my current GOTY candidate. Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid 5 and Halo 5 are my other games that I am getting that I can see win a few votes as well. Also don't forget about Bloodborne.

A couple of hours? It's great that you're enjoying it, but your opinion might change. I loved the game at the beginning, but by the time I finished I was disappointed, frustrated and bored. I forced myself to finish it so I could forget about it.

In my experience, the game's problems and issues become more apparent as you progress. At the beginning it feels fun because the game still has the same solid combat we have come to expect. The way they handled the story doesn't help.

Also, and this is entirely subjective, Rocksteady should take a look at the way Sucker Punch has implemented collectibles in the inFamous games. The riddler trophies continue to be, in my opinion, some of the worst collectibles ever. They're everywhere, they get in the way, their locations do not even make sense, they are boring to collect, and just all around a chore. They should have dropped the trophies and they should have given the Riddler its own set of side missions.

I think most review sites will give it to Witcher 3 or Fallout 4. Witcher 3 is kind of like an underdog as in it is an IP previously not noticed by the console market and ended up taking it by storm. Fallout 4 if it is as great as the hype, it will win many many awards just like every other TES and Fallout 3.

Batman has far to much mixed praise and it is not a huge step compared to its predecessors. Bloodborne does not revolutionize the Souls series nor take it a huge step forward or in a totally new direction, therefore I do not see it doing what DeS did nor DkS1. Neither are bad games nor undeserving, I just predict this due to seeing GOTY awards come out year after year.

I will get many disagrees by BB fans, but despite being a great and beautifully crafted game I just think it has not taken the press by storm like it's predecessors
