It seems like 2015 will the year the eighth generation of consoles finally finds its stride. Let’s be honest here, so far there hasn’t been that one must-buy game for them yet, but that looks all set to change in the forthcoming year. We thought we would take a quick look at some of the games coming in 2015 that really look like they will be extraordinary. Keep in mind, games are always pushed back and delayed, so if some of these don’t make it to the shelves in 2015, not our fault. Regardless, here are the ten video games coming in 2015 that we are already drooling over.
Before we shower this game with the same praise as every other site, we will shower it in some of the same doubts that many gamers have. Is there any way this game can truly deliver on what it promises? Many seem to think that’s impossible. Open world space exploration and constantly changing, self generating environments. The general thought is, either this game is going to change how we view space games, or it is going to be a vast, pretty, and boring game.
My hopes are still sky-high for this one. +100 points for lame wordplay.
Oh, come on? Like this wasn’t going to make the list. They sorta messed up with Origins, and this is finally the REAL developers back at the wheel. I say wheel specifically because in this version, we finally get to drive the batmobile. About damn time!
There is also a lot of fun speculation about who the new character, the Arkham Knight, could be. I already know but I won’t ruin it for you geeks.
Of all the video games coming out in 2015,Zelda seems to hold the most promise for old-school, retro gamers who grew up on the charms of the NES and this amazing franchise. While little has been revealed, the visuals are 1080p, the game takes place in an open world, and it really looks like the Zelda game we all have been dreaming about since we were kids.
Here’s hoping Nintendo can actually deliver the goods on this one. Though truth be told, one of the best games from 2014 was a Wii U game (Bayonetta 2) so that ups the ante.
Sorry if you came here expecting this all to be huge, big budget and big name games. While most of the list is just that, we needed to make a nod to something a little smaller, but that looks to be just as powerful (if not more so) than the other titles on the list. Inside.
All I have to say about this game is that it was made by the same minds behind the spectacular Limbo, and looks to be just as atmospheric and memorable as that game was. Yes, we are looking forward to The Witness, but we are looking forward to this more. Just keeping it real. Looks to deal with themes of conformity, among other hefty issues, and the visual aesthetic is stunning.
If you have not played Just Cause 2, you have missed out on one of the most impressive and vast open world games ever made. The amount of things you could do in Just Cause 2 was the stuff worthy of blown minds, so trying to imagine this game on next gen hardware with even more mayhem to create seems like it could be a real wonderful time waster for us in the next year.
They just need to release some gameplay footage and back this theory up.
Sorry, but if we are not getting a Fallout 4 in 2015, we will take what we hope is the next best thing. An open world game based around the Mad Max universe seems so ripe with potential (but so little has been seen that all we can do is cross fingers and pray).
I, myself, have been pretty tapped out on this franchise, TBH. But I know a great many of you are not, so it’s here so you don’t attempt to find me and flay me alive.
Because we hate ourselves enough to endure another brutally difficult game from the creators of the Souls series’. Honestly, though, this game looks nuts in the best way possible.
Such a great series and wildly under appreciated, we hope this third installment gives it the boost the franchise needs to go out with a bang.
Mighty No. 9
Pure, old-school nostalgia from the original creator of Mega Man. Plus, we all helped fund this one on Kickstarter! Seems like a perfect note to end on.
Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong here. These are the games WE are most excited for. What are the games YOU are most excited for in 2015? Take to the comments and let us know!
