You'll have to let me know how Downwell is. I'd like to play it but I don't own a controller for my PC; never really intend to buy one either. The only portable it seems to be coming to is the Vita.

Wow! Jeff Gerstmann liked Nuclear Throne so much it suddenly earned a spot on his Top-Ten for 2015...

Which was problematic for him because Bloodborne was sitting at #10! He --HAD-- to include it on his list, so it became his Top-Eleven Games of the Year!  cheeky

Updated with Greg Kasavin and Jeff Gerstmann!

(The last time I saw those two names next to each other was GS, circa 2007.)

Don't tell Vader, but one of Greg's honorable mentions was Prune!  surprise

Wow! There's a disturbing lack of Fallout 4 on a lot of those lists!  surprise

I've been meaning to post my games of the year list, but a late comer to the party is in danger of screwing up my list by being my GOTY.

I keep forgetting I own Grow Home. I'm never gonna get used to the PS4's UI. Sad

I thought Gerstmann's game of the year was going to be Kane & Lynch this year. Shit.

So nobody picked Xenoblade for a top 10? Makes me wonder how many actually played it. Its definitely top 10.

Reason I am looking at these a bit more closely: It's amazing how diverse GOTY's are this year. I don't really recall a year in the recent past where I DID NOT know so many entries!

_____________________________________________________

I'm shocked how many indies and mobiles there are!

I'm shocked how few have Batman Arkham on them!

I'm shocked to see Transfomers Devastation on some!

I'm shocked to see Tales from the Borderlands on so few!

The almost utter lack of Portable Games on this list is somewhat telling!

There's a few games that seem to suffer from being released very early in 2015: Bloodborne and Dying Light, specifically!

There's a few games I never would have thought would make it to a Top-Ten list: Life is Strange, Until Dawn and Rocket League.

There's a few critical darlings I'm going to have to seek out and play now: Undertale **have it, haven't played it**, Box Boy **just got it!**, Downwell, Alphabear and Ori and the Blind Forest.

_____________________________________________________

As I find more of these lists, I'll post more! I'm just finding it interesting how different the landscape of the hobby looks at the end of 2015!


Fully agreed.
