My Games of the Year for 2015
Games I played but didn't find them worthy to be on the list
Cradle, didn't think it was very special.
Hotline Miami 2, SOUNDTRACK? WHAT A JOKE, MATE.
Massive Chalice, great game, it should be on this list but I wanted to have the benchmark number 5.
Hacknet, played for a few hours, cool but I didn't care enough to go back for a second sitting.
The Beginners Guide, taught me a nice bit about people.
SOMA, as far as science fiction/android shit goes, this isn't anything special. Didn't like the characters, the voice acting, or the writing. I'm not exaggerating when I say 75% of the dialogue is the most poorly written, poorly delivered slop I have ever heard. The voice of Catherine especially is the most off-putting. It may have been a stylistic choice, figuring what happens in the story, but if that's the case it is a swing and a miss. Good looking game, interesting setting. Didn't enjoy a second.
