Thats right, while everyone else wraps up their 2015, Shardik is looking at the future. Can’t say he’s not streets ahead.


10. Overwatch

Blizzard’s upcoming shooter looks to give me an alternative to Team Fortress 2, especially if more content is added to the beta’s current state.

9. Mighty Number 9

This one has irked quite a few people by design decisions and delays, but the Megaman fan in me craves a new title that the legacy collection won’t sate.

8. Digimon Cyber Sleuth

I spent waaaay too much time playing the original Digimon Worlds, and seeing a new console digimon game is reason alone to be excited. It looks good to though, so thats a plus.

7. World of Warcraft: Legion

World of Warcraft hasn’t held my attention for more than a month at a time in a few expansions, but Legion looks to be hitting all my buttons, bringing a more solo experience that matches my matured playstyle. The upcoming movie will hopefully reignite my old fire for the lore as well.

6. Yooka-Laylee

A new Banjo Kazooie type game? SOLD. Made by the people who made BK too? I’ll buy 2 please.

5. Final Fantasy XV

The demo was fun, and a new Final Fantasy is always time for excitement.

4. Fire Emblem Fates

Awakening is one of the few games that immediately sucked me back in for multiple playthroughs, and one of the only tactical RPGs period to keep me interested. I will be buying all the version day 1.

3. Persona 5

I’ll discuss character arcs and story themes of Persona 3 or 4 with anyone for hours. Persona 5 looks to inject some Lupin III style capery to the mix and I couldn’t be happier.

2. Dark Souls 3

The Souls series was an unexpected smash hit with me, and Dark Souls 3 is supposedly the last in the dark souls series. A bittersweet series of deaths awaits me, and praising of the sun awaits us all.

1. ???

In 2015, a small game called Undertale came out of nowhere and blew many a minds. I truly didn’t expect to have such an emotional reaction to it, and most else didn’t either. So in respect to that, I’m leaving number 1 as an unknown, to hope some other stand out surprise comes to salt the earth around gamefaq polls.
