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.

Trailer Time: Rise of the Tomb Raider Launch Trailer (Xbox One – 2015) *Lara’s Back!*

Set after Tomb Raider, Lara Croft’s experience of the supernatural on Yamatai has been covered up by the organization Trinity. In order to prove she is not insane Lara becomes obsessed with finding the truth behind myths around the world. Rise of the Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft and Jonah Maiava as they search Siberia for the ancient city Kitezh, built by the Grand Prince of Vladimir in the 13th century, which Lara believes holds some truth behind immortality. In a race against Trinity, a well funded organization interested in the supernatural, Lara must survive against humans, animals, and the environment in order to find the truth behind the myths and become who she was destined to be.

Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in the most beautiful hostile environments on earth, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival action adventure where you will join Lara Croft on her first tomb raiding expedition as she seeks to discover the secret of immortality.

There isn’t a game I’ve had more fun playing, much to my surprise, than Crystal Dynamic’s reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise and the sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, has been one of my most anticipated games of 2015.  Lara Croft, her bosom sensibly resized for human beings, will return on November 10th and your achievements/trophies are below courtesy of the intrepid xboxachievements.com Continue reading Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox, Playstation – 2015)

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox, Playstation – 2015) PLUS NEW TRAILER

I can count on one hand the number of games I’ve played all the way through twice just because they were that much fun.  Crystal Dynamic’s reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise’s only flaw was a horned-in multi-player component that had no place being in the game.  Not every game needs multi-player, something I’m glad to see fixed this time.  Lara went through a lot in the first game and there’s a lot of really cool character development going on with her as in this game we get back to basics: the tombs.  I’ll be there when Rise of the Tomb Raider releases in November 2015.  For all your achievement needs, check out the list below courtesy of xboxachievements.com.
