After spending some time highlighting a lot of the notable games that I didn’t get to this year, here is the list of the games that I did play in 2015. Despite picking up a Wii U this year, I wound up not really playing anything released this year substantially enough to be in consideration, mostly catching up on the back catalog. Similarly, between moving houses and having a somewhat crappy older computer, I didn’t spend any time on PC gaming this year either. The PlayStation 4 was my main system this year but a few Xbox One exclusives and some PlayStation Vita games made the cut. So here are the 33 games I’ll be considering for my Best Games of 2015 list.
• The Adventures of Pip
• Axiom Verge
• Batman Arkham Knight
• Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection
• Citizens of Earth
• Fallout 4
• Fallout Shelter
• Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff*
• Final Fantasy Record Keeper
• Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae
• Game of Thrones
• Hotline Miami 2
• Lara Croft Go
• LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
• LEGO Dimensions
• LEGO Jurassic World
• The Mega Man Legacy Collection
• Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
• OlliOlli 2
• The Order: 1886
• Ori and the Blind Forest
• Rare Replay
• Rise of the Tomb Raider **
• Rocket League
• Saints Row IV: Re-Elected ***
• Shovel Knight ***
• Super Time Force Ultra ***
• Tales from the Borderlands **
• Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
• The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
* = Family Guy The Quest for Stuff launched in 2014 but I spent time with it and some of the special event content this year for consideration.
** = Rise of the Tomb Raider and Tales from the Borderlands have not been finished as of 12/22/2015 but I intend to play/finish them this week prior to making my final decisions.
*** = Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, Shovel Knight, and Super Time Force Ultra originally launched prior to 2015 on other platforms but I did not play them until they were released this year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
So there you have it. One of those games will be the Trevor Trove Game of the Year. Stay tuned.
