Killing Time’s Top 10 Video Games of 2015

Fallout 4

2015 was a ridiculously good year for video games, so good that I almost hope 2016 is subpar so that I can finally catch up with all the gaming I have to do.  Old franchises returned to form, some just kept rolling along and a few new players entered the arena.  To me, the top two games of the year were Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.  I ended up selecting the latter as my #1, but I’ve only put a fraction of the time needed to fully explore the Boston wasteland in Fallout 4, whereas I’ve shaken everything out of the second game in the excellent resurrected Tomb Raider series.  So with that caveat, here are my top 10 games of 2015, which I will be playing looooong into this year and beyond.
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

1. Rise of the Tomb Raider

2. Fallout 4

3. Witcher III: The Wild Hunt

4. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

5. Batman: Arkham Knight

6. Life is Strange

7. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

8. HALO 5: Guardians

9. Ori & the Blind Forest

10. Battlefield: Hardline

Honorable Mention: Star Wars Battlefront, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Rock Band 4, Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands
