8. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (2015)
My number 8 was the over all number 8 as well. That worked out nicely. This game was a surprise hit for me as I played the first two games as they came out and thought that they were only "OK", 6/10 games. I didn't have any hype for this game but when I got it I was amazed by the quality of it, especially the storytelling and interesting side-quests. I was worried that it would be a massive directionless game like Skyrim but the sheer quality of every aspect blew my mind. My wife is playing it at the moment (level 34) and I'm even having fun watching her discover areas and beating Witcher contracts. It was my Game of the Year 2015 and my vote for game of the generation!
