Top 10 Most Anticipated Console Games of 2015

From No Man's Sky to Tekken 7 and Xenoblade Chronicles X, VR World weighs in on the most anticipated games of the year and discusses what makes them so good.

I think my most anticipated game would be until dawn. Can't wait to see hayden panettiere in that towel ;)

medman3095d ago

Huh...I was kinda hoping to see her out of that towel???

BlackSpartan1873096d ago

I was enjoying the list until that last two, lol. Who in the world would have Assassin's Creed as their most anticipated game of 2015, smh. I would put The Rise of Tomb Raider and Kingdom Hearts 3 instead or maybe Final Fantasy XV. I think those games have a more high anticipation than Assassin Creed or Dead Island 2. But other than that I agree on the rest, it's going to be a great year in gaming. We are finally going to see some real next gen games on both consoles.


No Man's Sky gets a huge surge of users thanks to Starfield effect

Starfield's launch appears to be having a positive effect on No Man's Sky's own player numbers.

It’s a really good game now. A lot different when I played it at launch. It wasn’t bad at launch but they added a LOT to make it much better than I thought it could be. VR makes it even better

Amazing game, the only problem is it crashes a lot during MP sessions :( hope that will get fixed soon

Snookies1214d ago

Is that issue on console only? I've played a decent amount of multi-player on PC and hadn't had any issues. Maybe I just lucked out?

northpaws14d ago

Yes, I was playing on console, and whenever me and my friends (a group of 4) trying to do those weekly Nexus missions, at least one of us crashes or have some of errors that prevent us from finishing it.

If you're on PC turn off Windows Game Mode, I can't play NMS for more than 30mins without a crash if that setting is on.

Click start > Settings > Gaming > Game Mode.

MrNinosan14d ago

I played NMS since release, and since Multiplayer patch I've spent over 1500 hours across PS4 and PS5. Never had a crash as I can remember

..."now" being the key word.

If we are to treat games equally regardless of who makes them, then the same holds true for Starfield. Only it likely wont need as much added content to make it "a really good game" as it already is... now. It already ships with more content than NMS had at launch.

The improvements Bethesda will make over time will be minor quality of life improvements. Performance...maybe a new mission here or there but much like 76 (which also lacked at the start and was later redeemed with a flood of content), Starfield was built to last a long time and benefit those who put in the effort to really want to explore the stars.

It's definitely the type of game for those with a creative and explorative mind with time on their hands.

"If we treat 4 people in 2016 the same as over 400 in 2023..."

"...Starfield was built to last a long time and benefit those who put in the effort to really want to explore the stars.

Ehhh, personally I think you lost me on that last part about 'explore the stars' and 'creative and explorative mind with time on their hands'. Not saying that you don't like exploring or that Starfield doesn't have exploration, but that somehow it's MORE of an exploration game that NMS.

NMS is built around space and planet exploration and I believe that is an objective statement that many people would agree on. With access to an ungodly amount of planets (18 Quintillion), all fully explorable, where you can fly anywhere and everywhere, you could play the game for the rest of your life and not visit 1% of the available locations. I believe that Starfield is a good game and definitely plan on playing it one day so I'm not trying to downplay it's enjoyment. I even think all of the very low scores that it has received may not be fully deserved, even though there are some fair criticisms of the game. I just think it's unfair that many people keep trying to pit the two games against each other because they are really two different types of games.

so youre saying indie developer hello games should be compared to bethesda/micro$oft. it really does matter who makes them because one company has basically unlimited resources and the other company doesn't.

I actually like it better than Starfield. Especially the exploration part. Starfield has no sense of exploration
Very data characters, feels like a 10 year old game because of the game engine
Maps suck
Inventory sucks
I found the quests very boring and mediocre as well.
Oh and loading screen after loading screen. Now we know why Bethesda didn't give out review codes to everyone. Don't get me wrong it's a good game, but it's not great

Everyone wants to see what they're missing out on when they bought into the hype of a game that claimed to be NMS meets Skyrim, but failed to deliver.

crazyCoconuts14d ago

I'm playing it lately since the PSVR2 patch that just came out, nothing to do with Starfield.
It's quite a game in VR when it looks good, people have no idea

spoonard14d ago

I've spent hours in flat AND VR multiplayer and have had a flawless experience.

No wonder..they want to experience what they can't do in Starfield ;P

Abnor_Mal14d ago

With all the updates and expansions this game has gotten over the years how many gigabytes is the game now with everything.

I bought this game day one on PS5 but quickly stopped playing because I started off on a planet where the atmosphere was poisonous and my oxygen would run out fairly quickly, which kept me from really exploring because I always had to get back to the ship to replenish my oxygen reserves.

I also quickly learned I really did not like any kind of resource gathering and management kind of games.

Abnor_Mal14d ago

Thanks I might reinstall it on PS5 and try the game on PSVR2.

Markdn13d ago

That's what shows up most games is the fact with all the content it's only 15gb.NMS gives you what you want based on your level of involvement, I login sometimes land on a planet, put on the vr headset and just explore. Some days I'll hook up and do missions with friends, and then some days I'll feel restless and start a fight in space,. NMS should not be compared to Starfield.
