Have at it folks, and drop your reasoning in the comments below if you’re that way inclined.

[polldaddy poll=9221800]


  • Fallout 4, I’ve had an almost glitch free experience now approaching 80 hours of gameplay.

    my only real gripe is you cannot pickup and play holotapes when searching containers, instead you have to remember the name and then go looking for it in your Misc inventory.

    Full disclaimer: I haven’t played Witcher 3, so I can’t vote for it. I expect it’ll probably be a strong contender.

    • I voted for the WItcher over Fallout. While Fallout is also a brilliant game, and I actually put more hours into it, it’s not a particularly good PC port.

      The Witcher 3 was a brilliant game that looks, runs and plays well.

      Where is Arkham Knight on the list though, best PC game 😉

  • I’ve been playing Witcher 3 since it came out. It was the only thing I was excited for all year and it delivered and I can’t wait to go home and continue the expansion pack tonight. Think I’m nearing the end.

  • Pillars of Eternity.
    No other game brought me full circle in my gaming life like it did. Everytime it was loaded up I felt like I was back to the halcyon days of PC gaming and nostalgia flooded me.
    Brilliantly written, well paced, fully fleshed out characters and a fantastically well polished game in a superb setting with an emotionally charged score to accompany it.

    • Yeah agree, voted for Pillars but I never actually finished it. Lost my save and then life got in the way. Damn life. Will start again tonight.

    • As if World of Warships deserved a mention anyway.

      Maybe for most innovative methods of making players buy things.

  • I knew this would be a difficult choice for me, yet there was almost no hesitation for me to choose Witcher 3. Not because it’s a popular choice, I am currently obsessed with Fallout 4, but because even though I finished it sometime back, I still think of it almost every week.

    All in all though, I think 2015 will stand out for me for many years to come, so many great entertainment experiences this year over so many genres. Now I just need the time to go and enjoy them all properly 😉

  • I’m surprised there’s so little Undertale love. Or is everyone already over the hype? Admittedly, the gameplay wasn’t the best, but the rest of it was top-notch.

  • I haven’t played any of these games…yet.

    Interesting to see no nomination for Battlefront. I’m well aware of some people’s disdain, and particularly the falling PC population…but interesting to not even be nominated.

  • Hmm Can’t vote for Dead State reanimated. =(
    (Remaster came out this year, and to be fair the original came out in mid-December last year anyway, so most of us were still playing it into and through 2015)

  • The Witcher 3 hands down. Quite literally the best game I have ever played. Also the only game I’ve purchased a physical copy of in about 5 years, the only game I got the collectirs edition of too.

  • Cities Skylines narrowly edged out Pillars and Her Story for me.

    Cities was just an experience built around pleasantness. No conflict, no grimdark, no try hard aspects at all. Just an enjoyable pleasantness all the way through.

  • I would like to give a mention to SOMA. I’m pretty bad with the horror genre TBH (I can sook out a bit easily), and even though this game might not have necessarily been promoted as a full on horror game like their previous titles, it still had those elements. But this game was so unbelievably addictive, and I was so intrigued to find out how it would end that I couldn’t help but keep playing until the final credits rolled over the screen. I loved the whole concept from start to finish, and it really left me thinking for a long time. Awesome experience.

  • If there can only be one then I choose The Witcher 3.

    Based on the list above it’s a pretty clear gap between The Witcher and my number two – Cities Skylines. The games themselves don’t compare directly except to say they are both fine examples of their respective genres.
