The EZA Community Top 20 Best of 2015!

  • @Jigoku-no-Musou that describes all bethesda open world games for me lol except oblivion thats games a masterpiece

  • @FF7Cloud Oblivion is great. Also, that game is pretty much at the same time textbook example how to do DLC wrong (Horse Armor), and how to do it right (Shivering Isles).

    Though, back on topic, I'm fairly certain that Axiom Verge won't show up, which makes me sad.

  • I figured it was a long shot, but I was hoping our EZA MH community would rally and give Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate some love, since it's (arguably) the series' best entry. Hopefully MH: World will bring in some new players.

  • @Billy I know I'm hopping into the franchise for the first time when Worlds comes out, so there's at least one new player!

  • @FF7Cloud I loved Oblivion and also Fallout 3, spent many many hours with both and beat them.
    I was thinking of also adding Skyrim to the list of those games but I didn't really enjoy Skyrim and stopped pretty early on.

  • @Billy I'm not completely convinced about MH World yet, but I do have to admit it has made me considered jumping into MH more than any time in past, I think it could go either way right now, but I if I see more stuff I like with it I may just jump in.

  • @bard91 @SabotageTheTruth Well, I'm very glad you're considering hopping into the franchise. I actually purchased MH3U on a whim, mainly because I liked the thought of naturalistic settings and hunting dinosaurs, and I'm sure glad I tried it out. It definitely has a bit of a learning curve, but the gameplay feels really good once you get it down and start dancing around the monsters. There's a reason why it's fans are so dedicated, and I'd be more than happy to go hunting with you anytime.

    That being said, I only watched the E3 reveal and am avoiding all news/trailers. It's a big step for the series, so I'm really hoping they pull it off admirably.

  • I don't play Rocket League anymore, but the BF and I did play a LOT of it in 2015. Probably the best PS+ game we ever got.
    Super fun, even though I was terrible at it, and it did keep improving with different stuff added.

  • Seriously can't wait for Rocket League to come to the Switch. I adored it on PS4 and then kinda fell out of it after a good while. Being able to play it handheld makes me giggle with anticipation :D

  • Rocket League is just a lot of dumb fun that surprised everyone by being better than what most of us expected. Honestly though, I probably never would have purchased it if I didn't get it free on PS+ so... smart move on their part.

  • I only played Rocket League during the free weekend on Steam, and the only reason why I haven't bought it is because I know if would consume a lot of time, because I had an incredible time with the game, and there's no better feeling that when you actually get to stop a clear shot on goal in midair.

  • I played Rocket League for about a month after getting it on PS+ and had a lot of fun with it, but eventually I sort of hit a wall and didn't feel like I was getting better anymore, and slowly moved on to other games. It's definitely an awesome concept and perfectly executed, the controls are very responsive and satisfying. Was my #6!

  • Rocket League is a game that succeeds at being both technical and casual and endlessly fun for any player type.

    The way they released the Hockey mode, Basketball mode, the cube mode, and all of the game alterations over time, made me feel like I was back in the era of support that Bungie provided Halo 3 MP in that it was all about making the game endlessly varied and ridiculously fun.

    The best part is that my roommate and I played split-screen against bots on the hardest difficulty more than anything else. That says a lot about how fun this game is, when you can enjoy yourself against AI bots just as much as playing real people.

  • Well, not third but I have one prediction right! On the whole, Rocket League was THE out of nowhere smash hit of that year. Something so simple, yet so brilliant. While I have not played, nor do I want to play, I find it a fascinating example of what can happen when people get behind a concept. Also, huge shoutout to the NoClip doc series on it. Super good stuff.

  • Rocket League is all killer no filler. At least at launch, some of those modes they've added since have been kinda not so hot, but I can deal with that if it means they also add some cool new cars like Takumi or some fun modes like Hoops. And I mean, it's not like those new game modes cost me a dime. Free updates that don't outright break a game are always a plus.

  • Rocket League is something truly special. To me, it's the best sports game ever made. I haven't had as much fun with any other sports game ever, and likely never will.

    I still havent played a minute of Rocket league. Still kinda regret that I discarded it when it was free on PS+ just to then see that people loves it haha.

    Life is Strange however. I got it because it was free on PS+ and a friend of mine has been bugging me about it for absolutely ages, so thought I would give it a try. I did not expect it to be such a huge thing for me. Its 5 episodes on about 2 hours each, give or take depending on how much you want to read/talk to people. It is a bit ofa teenage drama but man it gripped me so hard. Few games have made me so emotinal as this. I cried, laughed, cried some more, felt panic, pride and at some points I just screamed right out. It really feels like it could be real people you play as. I mean I normally arent a huge fan of "pick your own adventures episodic games", but this was something else. I played it through twice in the span of 3 weeks and platinumed it. So worth it!
