Around this time of year in gaming, I always enjoy the opportunity to look forward and see what the next year holds in store for me. 2015 was the first year where I looked at the video game releases scheduled, and found myself speechless. I don’t think my bank account is ready for the perfect storm of releases that is occurring, so to help wrap my head around this, I’ve decided to try and pick my top 5 most anticipated games for 2015.
5. Star Wars: Battlefront
It has been some time since I last played Star Wars Battlefront 2, but I have so many fond memories. In my imagination I’m picturing Heroes vs. Villains mode on next gen consoles. Or massive 32+ player battles on Hoth, complete with AT-ATs and Snowspeeders, on next gen consoles. I should stop now before I start drooling into my keyboard. While the game doesn’t have a set release date beyond “2015”, It is a game that I will not be taking my eyes off of.
4. Mortal Kombat X
3. Batman: Arkham Knight
Due for release June 2nd 2015, Rocksteady’s swan song for Batman has peaked the interest of my inner nerd in a way that few games can. Batman, check. Batmobile, check. Brand new villain that has the potential to be as badass as Batman?! Check. I am foaming at the mouth waiting to see what Rocksteady has planned for their final Batman. Any game that makes me type “Batman” as many times as I just did is worth my time.
2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
1. The Legend of Zelda (Wii U)
So that’s all for me, there are so many games coming out in 2015 and I have so little money, what games will you be picking up and why? Let us know in the comments!
