Best Games 2015: Top rated titles of the year

Sam Loveridge by

Rise of the Tomb Raider 7

We pick out the games that need to be on your Santa List this year.

As we come hurtling towards the Christmas season, we've had the majority of the AAA game releases and now we know how the best games list of 2015 is really shaping up.

This time around you're looking at four new additions – it's that time of year after all. First up you've got the long-awaited Fallout 4, the latest entry in the post-apocalyptic series.

Then you've got the Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider, which brings back puzzling tombs and much, much more. And keeping to Xbox One exclusives, you've also got Halo 5: Guardians.

Finally, there's a nod to the beauty of London with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate – the first in the Assassin's Creed series to have dual protagonists.

Why is Battlefield Hardline on the list? Nobody likes that stupid game! It's just a bunch of buy this and buy more spend a fortune on our stupid repeat of Battlefield 4! And super Mario and the other crap politically correct Nintendo games? Nobody builds a gaming rig to play friggin Nintendo games! Nor do they like being all pc and corrected by failed politics from nazi germany!

When I bought my NVIDIA graphics card, I got a code for metal gear solid V for steam, but steam games from steam don't work properly on my PC because when I start up the game or play it for 10 minutes my PC and my screen disconnect so I hear some noises but I don't see anything. I think it is because of windows 10

Does that happen only when you play games? It sounds like a hardware issue. Have you checked your display cable is securely connected from the GPU to the screen? Also have you tried a different cable entirely, just to be sure

Wow. Is all I can say.

You're allowed an opinion, but don't flip out so much when someone else thinks different. I'm no fan of Battlefield but it sells well for a reason.

You're right that nobody buys a gaming rig for Nintendo games though... They buy a Wii U or 3DS...

Thank you for answering. It only happens when I play games that care connected to steam (so metal gear solid V, napoleon total war (I did buy the dvd rom) those games crash altought; I could play the prologue of metal gear).
When I play stronghold crusader (old but very nice game) I can play it, but when there is a notification I have to start the game again.
I got a BenQ EW 2440 screen and with that I got a hdmi cable which I connected to my gpu (it is the only cable I connected to my screen). It can be that this can be easily fixed, I come from an iMac so I don't know so much about pc's but I build my own pc (windows 10) but I don't think it has to do with my building because I really searched for information (more than 1 year).

If you havent found the source yet:
I bought the nvidia gtx 970 for witcher 3; while playing i heard a terrible noise in my headphone who came somewhere from my pc-hardware. Because i coulndt find the where it came from, I buckled on my 44pound pc to my store-of-trust. We located the error in the power adapter. It was to old and the card needed more power. After replacing with a new one, the noises were gone. Sometimes its just the best to go to a store with Pros in it, who can help locate the error. Just an idea.

well, thank you for responding. I've heard that I have to download new updates (I did instal a new one but I didn't try it out yet) and maybe it has to do with my cable. My power supply is a corsair cs550m (550watt) http://www.corsair.com/en/powe...|.

Dumb. I think that the nominees will be between mgs5, fallout 4, Rise of the tomb raider, the witcher 3, xenoblade chronicles x (maybe), bloodborne, and Mario maker. The winner? MGSV. The only true masterpiece this year. No need for all of the other games on this list.
