9 Most Anticipated Games of 2015

Hey Guys, it's about time that I come up with a list of things, so why not do it with some of the most anticipated games of 2015! In case you didn't already figure it out, this is NOT a top tens list!

1. Fallout 4
Release Date:November 10th, 2015(PC,Xbox One,PS4)
Don't act like you had no idea that this was going to be on the list. Whether you are into Fallout 4 or not, there is no denying the amount of hype that this game is generating in the gaming community. I wrote an article on my thoughts about Fallout 4, so be sure to check it out!

2. Rise of the Tomb Raider
Release Date: November 10th, 2015(Xbox One, Xbox 360)
There is actually still a lot of controversy behind this game due to the fact that this is an Xbox exclusive. Honestly, I do agree that it's bogus that PC and PlayStation users will not be able to experience this game. However, I'm positive that this game will see a release on these platforms in time. Additionally, this game chose the wrong time to release because Fallout 4 will be coming out on the same day this releases. If you haven't experienced Tomb Raider, please go out and buy a copy. It's pretty cheap and you could pick it up on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, and PS4.

3. Halo 5: Guardians
Release Date: October 27th, 2015(Xbox One)
Yet another Xbox exclusive game. This game has been gathering hype ever since it's been announced almost a year ago. Even more hype was gained from the Warzone trailer shown at E3 2015! It feels a lot like Battlefield to be totally honest. As of July 8th, 2015, there was still no word if there would be split-screen due to the fact that 343 Studios removed it in order for the game to run at 60fps. Personally, it's a 50/50 chance that I'll even play the game since it hasn't sparked my interest.

4. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Release Date: September 1st, 2015 (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
People have been going crazy ever since the first trailer appeared back at the Spike VGAs 2012. This game has even gathered controversy because of the character Quiet. I'm not even going to go into detail about this because I really don't see the big deal behind it. It's just a video game. Players already got a sneak peak of the game with Ground Zeroes, and it's pretty much guaranteed that this game is going to be awesome! However, it was a bad idea that this game will be on last-gen consoles because I'm positive there is going to be a major graphics downgrade and gameplay features stripped from the game.

5. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Release Date: March 2016(PS4)
Although I am not a PlayStation user, I'm am fully aware of how successful the Uncharted Series is. The action shown during trailers is just amazing and just shows off what the PlayStation 4 is capable of.  Also, it's Nolan North and Troy Baker as the main stars of the game! What more could you ask?

6. Dark Souls III
Release Date: Early 2016(PC, Xbox One, PS4)
I have played the first Dark Souls game, but I unfortunately never got the chance to play Dark Souls II. I heard nothing but good things about the sequel, and I have to try it out eventually. Anyways, a lot of people were surprised that this game was announced because it was just unexpected that there was going to be another game.

7. Doom 4
Release Date: 2016(Xbox One, PS4)
It's been almost 11 years since Doom 3 first released. Doom 4 has to have one of the best trailers at E3. It's just a minute of pure awesomeness! However, a lot of controversy has been surrounding the game due to its excessive violence. Yet, those who accuse this game of being too violent obviously have never played Doom before.

8. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
Release Date: November 6th, 2015(Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
Call of Duty still has a fanbase. I'm actually not shocked that this game is still getting hype from so many people. Sales have been going down since Ghosts released, but it's still not stopping millions of other of people who still buy the game. I guess the shout out feature would be the 4-player campaign on current-gen consoles(Xbox One, PS4).

9. Assassin's Creed: Syndicate
Release Date: October 23rd, 2015(Xbox One, PS4, PC)
This game still makes me a bit nervous. It should be on everyone's watch list, but not for the actual hype. I'm talking about if this game launches completely broken just like Unity. Unity was not a very good game even when the patches game into effect since the story was average at best and the main character was not interesting. However, what gameplay shown has been promising, so there should be some hope that this game will be a great improvement on Unity.

Honorable mentions also go to Dishonored 2, Battlefront 3, The Last Guardian, Quantum Break, and Battleborn.
I probably missed a lot of games, but I hope that I at least got to the big ones that everyone should at least be familiar with.
Till Next Time!!
