Default Game of the Year Thread 2015

Doing this sooner than I said I would for reasons.

Here's the List of 2015 Games Again


2015 was a really good and busy year, so I'm excited to see what people vote for and how people fill out the sub-poll stuff.

Which by the way, I've changed up a lot this year, hoping to make it more interesting to fill out and read by adding, removing, changing, etc a lot of the 'questions'.

As always, anything that doesn't apply to you, you don't have a good answer for, or just don't wanna include, feel free to erase it and just move on to the next thing.

I'm gonna change Best/Worst Game to Favorite and Least Favorite.

If you haven't played anything that was outright terrible, like me and I imagine a lot of people, might be hard calling one of them the 'Worst'.

It had a better than average main story plot for a Bethesda game I guess, but that's not saying much, and I can count on one hand all the secondary missions that I really enjoyed doing.

Also, occasionally you'll get a series of dialog options that are literally this.

"Yeah I'll do this for you."
"I'll do this for you."
"Ok, I'll do this for you."
"I'll do this for you, I guess."

Which just goes to show, they really shouldn't have limited the options to exactly 4 things to say, regardless of anything.

Only thing I can really say about Fallout 4's writing overall that was done super well, is they actually made the companions really interesting, who comment on where you're going and what's going on, have their own likes and dislikes, and more often than not their own quest to go on when you've spent enough time with them. It's a definite step above them being glorified pack mules with guns/swords, and is something I'll look forward to seeing again in future games, hopefully in TES6.

That's my feelings on it in a nutshell, anyways.

Piper was almost my worst character, not because I think she's not a strong character but she's such an asshole. Really strikes me the wrong way.

I'm just gonna drop this in here, since I only just now gave it a look and this little gem is not likely going to get recognition here any other way.

Undertale wins by a landslide.

I'm surprised MGSV didn't get a single vote. I mean, I was dissappointed by it myself but there's plenty of people who weren't, and if you asked at the start of the year what was probably gonna peoples favorite game, I woulda said MGSV for sure. Oh well.

Should note: Undertale, The Witcher 3, Life is Strange and maybe MGSV are all on sale right now on Steam till I think Sunday. Probably the best time to get any of them for a long while.

A lot of heavy hitters. It was a really, really good year for games that isn't necessarily well represented in this poll.

Last year was painfully anemic in comparison.

Yeah, I don't think I'm coming back to finish that list. I think that's as finished as I'm gonna get it. I don't feel too bad not filling out two "worst" options anyway.
