Some Of The Best Video Games Of 2015


With just a handful of days left until we shut the book on 2015, it’s probably the right time to reflect how amazing this year was for Gaming. From the never ending battle between the consoles to Virtual Reality, 2015 really was great. I mean, just see how gaming evolved as a sport, hundreds of people now buy tickets to watch top gamers play in an arena and millions watch them from the comfort of their couch, although this was imminent previously but 2015 saw a huge growth in number of tournaments and so was the rise in the crowd.

Game Tournaments

Talking about games, 2015 was jammed with incredible titles both from the big and small names in the industry. Many old franchises released their next iteration and completely rocked it while we got to see some incredibly mesmerizing indie games. So to sum it all up, here are my picks for the best video games of 2015.
