As of right now, it looks like a 3-way race for Game of the Year 2015…and we haven't even hit July yet.
Even though the fall is packed with hugely anticipated games, the first half of 2015 has made a strong statement.
The recently released Batman: Arkham Knight is hauling down plenty of praise and glowing reviews, and rightfully so. Many are saying it is indeed the best title yet this year. But there are many others who are still siding with one of the previous greats: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or Bloodborne . Both have been named the best of a new generation by various critics and sources, and they'll be in the mix at the end of the year.
Then again, look what's coming: Fallout 4 , Assassin's Creed Syndicate , Star Wars: Battlefront , Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , Call of Duty: Black Ops III , Halo 5: Guardians , and more are stacking up for the holiday push. When it finally comes time to hand out the awards, it'll be very interesting to see which titles earn the most acclaim. I guess it all depends on how each will be remembered as time goes on…
