8 awesome games of 2015 not named Fallout 4
We get it, Fallout 4 is good, but there were lots of other great games this year too
A lot of you like Fallout 4. That’s cool, it’s a great game. There were quite a few other titles released this year that were equally great. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite games from this past year not named Fallout 4.
The PlayStation 4 exclusive came out way back in March of this year, but chances are if you played it you remember it quite well. Take everything you love about the Souls franchise, add in an Eastern European aesthetic and a Gothic vibe, you have Bloodborne. A true beauty to behold in terms of visuals, gameplay, and difficulty, it was a true system seller, having sold over 2 million copies as of September, and left players with haunting memories they will never forget.
Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
While it might not have the same critical acclaim of Orcarina of Time, Majora’s Mask still a beloved title in the Legend of Zelda franchise. The long awaited classic finally made its way to the Nintendo 3DS, allowing a new generation of gamers the chance to save Clock Town. The familiar gameplay, memorable characters, and unique twist all come together to help bring the forgotten classic into the new generation.
At least I hope its not forgotten; this game has one very vocal backing.
While the internet went from talking about Witcher 3 to Fallout 4, you can’t forget about Rocket League. Launching as a free game in the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, Rocket League’s high octane, over-the-top, and insanely addictive gameplay helped power a word of mouth campaign that has taken the game to unforeseen heights. Without a doubt, this is your sleeper hit of the year and it’s about playing a game of soccer with rocket cars. God damn, though, if it isn’t fun.
