| "Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, When I was Dead Broke, Man I couldn't Picture This" |
Our favorite games of 2015 and the platforms we played them on. Of course we haven't played all games that came out in 2015 - we have a feeling we would love Rise Of The Tomb Raider, for example.
1. Splatoon (WiiU)
Nintendo managed to make an accessible, fast paced, incredibly fun shooter that is easily one of the most stylish games in years. Also, it’s the best Tony Hawk game released this year (#ShotsFired).
2. Life Is Strange (Xbox One)
Life Is Strange might be one of the most important games that has been released in a while. It’s weird mix of Twin Peaks and Dawson’s Creek made the story incredibly refreshing. The moments where Max, the main character, just sits around and enjoys the environment or plays guitar, until your realize its up to you to move her, are some of the best moments gaming offered in years. The ending is pretty disappointing however.
3. The Witcher (Xbox One)
This game is huge, dense and beautiful. If you love fantasy, you’ll love The Witcher. If you, like me, are into the books, you’ll be even more mind blown.
4. Mario Maker (WiiU)
This is the game we imagined when we were kids. It’s a huge triumph and it will be enjoyed for years.
5. Xenoblade Chronicles X (WiiU)
This game is crazy in every way. It’s gigantic, it’s beautiful and it’s really one of a kind. If you ever loved JRPGs, give this game a shot.
6. Broken Age (iOS)
This game is beautiful and heart warming. Give it some of your time and you’ll fall in love with it.
7. Box Boy (Nintendo 3DS)
As if Splatoon and Mario Maker weren’t enough, Nintendo also released a little game called Box Boy, which might just be one of the most innovative puzzle-platformers in years. Also, it’s minimal design is beautiful. The best thing? It’s 5€, even though I would have payed 50€ for it.
8. Fallout 4 (Xbox One)
In all honesty, I was slightly disappointed by Fallout 4. However, it’s still Fallout, which is more than most games can say.
9. Lifeline 2 (iOS)
A text message based iPhone game. Sounds lame? Well, you’re wrong. Give it a go and you’ll soon wish Arika Lanphear, the protagonist, was actually your friend.
10. Alto’s Adventure (iOS) or Assassin's Creed: Syndicate
Alto's Adventure is a very simplistic, very stylish snowboarding game for iOS that somehow still manages to capture the unique feeling that snowboarding can give you. Also, it’s probably the only good endless-runner ever made.
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is not your average AC game. It takes what is great about the series and adds some great stuff to it. It's a lot of fun.
