I Started These 138 Video Games In 2015, 'Finished' 24

For the 10th year in a row (!), I’ve tallied the games I played in the past 12 months and have counted the ones I’ve “finished.” It’s clear that it’s time for some changes.

The 100 Most Popular Kotaku US Stories Of 2015

In 2015, you liked reading about Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3. You liked lists of top games. You mourned the passing of gaming icons.

Either way, these entries are all superb.

My 2015 was a little bit like Luke’s: I never felt like I had a shortage of cool things to play at any given moment, but when I sat down to pick my top ten, I wasn’t all that overwhelmed by my options.


The Year In East Asia

Here we are again. It’s December. It’s time to look back at this year’s coverage of Asia on Kotaku. You ready? I know I sure am.
