Myst would be Scott’s #1 game every year, but there’s new games to play instead. Scott is the Editor-in-Chief of this very site in which you are looking at. Between a full-time job and his family, it’s honestly a wonder he has time for the games he plays and reviews. Here’s what Scott found to be his favorite games of 2015, with an honorable mention thrown in, too.
Having a license plate read “TIHSHO” is pretty cool thing when you read it backwards. What’s also cool, is how many videogames came out in 2015, so picking only 10 games out of entire year of great games is no easy task. Here’s what Ed found to be the best of the year.
Videogames have had a good year in 2015. And when Evan got married earlier this year, this made for a good year for him as well. So when he’s not admiring the works of Dr Steve Brule, running, or working on his house (what a hunk), Evan is playing videogames. So here’s more than ten games that Evan found to be the best of 2015. Check It Out!
To date, Harry has only written one review for Saving Content, but it hasn’t stopped this self-proclaimed “Designer / Developer by day and Designer / Developer by night” from playing more games throughout 2015 and giving you his thoughts on them.
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today launches METAL GEAR ONLINE, the dedicated, squad-based multiplayer component of its best-selling METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN title for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One , and Xbox 360. The PC version remains on course for a January launch.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the last hurrah for creator, writer, and director Hideo Kojima. While certainly more stories might be told in the Metal Gear universe, Hideo Kojima will not be a part of it, following his departure from Konami. It’s a story that fills the missing chapter to Big Boss’ rise to villainy. But The Phantom Pain also serves another purpose, to deliver a different kind of Metal Gear game that is set in an open world, which has been unheard of in a game of this nature. It will no doubt be divisive among fans of the series for years to come, but one thing is for certain: it is unquestionably the best playing Metal Gear game in the series. It is also one of the best games of this year.

The Phantom Pain takes place in 1984 and continues the story of Big Boss following the events of Metal Gear Solid 3, Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes (other games in the series are set in the future beyond Phantom Pain). Will you get more out of the game’s story had you played the aforementioned games? Of course. But do you need to play those games to play Phantom Pain? Absolutely not. And I say this as a huge fan of Metal Gear who has played all of the mainline games of the series.
