The Best Games of 2015 So Far

We're a little over half way through the year and it's easy to see that 2015 is shaping up to be one of the best years gaming has seen in a long time. Amidst declarations against remasters and some disrespectfully bug-laden launches (Assassin's Creed Unity on every platform it touched), 2014 was certainly a hard year for a lot of people to get through.

With a new year comes renewed promise, and the first half of 2015 has seen a landslide of wonderful gaming experiences. On top of that, with games like Fallout 4, Mad Max, Star Fox Zero, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Transformers: Devastation releasing in the months ahead (as well as many others), it's clear that this is the year that many of us have been waiting for.

It's an exciting time to be playing and enjoying videogames. Without further ado, here are the 9 games that have best defined 2015 so far (in order of release). Agree or disagree, we'd love to see your opinion in the comments below!


The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Review

Majora's Mask is a game that shouldn't work purely from a conceptual standpoint. The core gameplay mechanic involves repeating sections of the game multiple times and constantly "restarting" the game from the beginning. You have three days to stop the moon from crashing into the land of Termina, so when you finally arrive at that third day you are forced to rewind time back to the first day or suffer "a terrible fate." This gameplay hook should lead to a tedious and repetitive grind, but the game is balanced so well that you never feel as if you are repeating content. When you rewind time you are keep your key items and masks that you've earned throughout the last three days, so each set of days has new opportunities based on the new masks and items you have. This experimentation is the key that makes Majora's Mask fascinating and addictive. Several big changes have been made to this 3DS remake that makes this unique game mechanic even more excellent.
