Kinda interested in Vampyr. From what little I could find, it seems to be similar in gameplay to VTMB, except set in old times. Action combat, skill trees, interconnected "hubs". It's made from the guys who did Life is Strange. I actually hated that game. Hated the writing. The game itself is a glitchy mess too. So I don't know what to think.

If you're a fan of Freelancer, and you want a game like that, X and Elite will bore you to death.

Sim tower was great, but lacked "something". I've been wanting a remake for a long time. Maybe this is it?

Can't wait for survival mode! It sounds awesome.

I haven't checked in on it yet, I take it this isn't coop survival in the Fallout world, is it? Now that would get my titties perky. To me that is sort of the standard in today's state of the art survival games.

It's not going to be multiplayer, it's Fallout 4, it's single player. It's going to be the same exact game, except that you'll have to eat, drink, sleep and it'll be more difficult.

Undying was an amazing game. One of the scariest game I've ever played. The atmosphere was amazing. So many great locations and an interesting story. It was pretty innovative too, with weapon customization, upgradable spells, different bullet types, dynamic shadows, location specific dismemberment...

Clive's other game, can't remember the name, bombed though. I did play it and I actually liked it. It's a decent linear horror shooter. The story is cool, but it ends abruptly. It's worth a play if you like mindless Painkiller-like gameplay.

Fallout 4 was a disappointment considering the high expectations set for the series. While Witcher 3 is glorious, SOMA is a piece of art and definitely up there, Kerbal Space Program was officially released in 2015 and also a strong contender for the title... But i guess KSP and SOMA cant even compete as they are independant and not a part of "the industry" ? (whatever that means)

I loooved Soma. It's my #2 this year. But if someone read this comment that I wrote and then played the game, he would be disappointed.

For all its quirks Life Is Strange remains one of the most engaging games I've played and slightly more so than Witcher 3. Even now Witcher 3 is a blur in term of recalling the story whereas LIS is still very vivid. Episodes 2, 3, and 4 remain the high points of the series through shock and tears.

I hated Life is Strange. I think it's because I can't get into the character. I guess they were trying to make a realistic teenage girl, but she annoys me so much. She makes the stupidest decisions and says the dumbest things. Since I'm the one making choices, it's just frustrating to be forced to do these dumb things. My girlfriend had the same reaction as me, so it's not just because I'm this matcho man :p

I'm Ok with that...most sites seem to rank W2 and FO4 in the top two slots. Witcher 3's release bugs, horrific inventory, and janky combat really put a damper on it for me. The storyline and voiceover work was top notch...but playing the game itself felt more like a pain in the ass.


Yep. Fallout 4 is the real game of the year, despite the flaws.
Honestly, Witcher 3 isn't even in the top 5 for me... I did like it, it's an incredible achievement, but it's just not that fun...

First batch of free games only required you to add the game from the Steam store page.
Second batch of free games require you to give an email and confirm your email.
Third batch will require you to make an account and maybe install something?

I do agree the combat is improved over prior games in the series but frankly that is the ONE thing that is improved. Virtually everything else is worse.

Crafting and base building are also vastly improved to the point where they are one of the central pillars of gameplay. They improve exploration greatly and keep you engaged in the game longer. When comparing FO3 and 4, a lot of things are now dumbed down, yes, but what really happened is that they completely changed what type of game Fallout is. It's now a survival(crafting and resource gathering heavy) open world shooter with RPG elements instead of an open world RPG with shooter combat. I do hate that it did that, but it's still a great game. Fallout 3 was very different from FO1 and 2 too... We'll just have to get our deep RPGs somewhere else.

What? The only thing in this list that Fallout 4 doesn't excel in is the progression system. It's as bad as the Witcher's. But, for previous Bethesda games, I'd give you "combat and movement", but no way I'm giving you "boring exploration". The progression system is only bad since Oblivion. It was good in all previous elder scrolls.

I actually haven't played FO4, so I'm basing this off of FO3, Oblivion, and Skyrim. I don't plan on playing FO4 any time soon, as I cannot imagine an even more dumbed down version of FO3.

The exploration is boring for example, in Skyrim, because after you explore a few of the dungeons, the rest is just just copy and paste, with the same reused assets and puzzles. Also, you finish a decent lengthed dungeon, fight a boss, and you get some trash loot in the end. It really makes the experience forgettable and not worth repeating. It's fun for the first ~10 hours, then it gets really boring.

Valid points. Exploration is rewarding gameplay-wise though(mostly because of crafting and base building), so that's why I like it I guess. They still put a lot of originality in every location in FO4 despite a lot of the same building blocks being reused. Combat and movement were vastly improved in FO4. It now feels pretty close to a real shooter.

Horrible combat and movement, boring exploration, annoying "in your face" side missions, bad progression system.

That's how I feel about Bethesda games, except they lack the great story or dialogue.

It's my clear GOTY.

I very much enjoy FO4, but GOTY over Witcher 3? No.

Witcher 3 is a 7.5 for me. Great story, dialogue and choices and graphics. Horrible combat and movement, boring exploration, annoying "in your face" side missions, bad progression system. I got really bored and annoyed with it mid-game and just set the difficulty to easy and quickly completed the main quest.



You are a very, very bad person!!!



My opinion angers lot of people, but I gots to be real. When it comes to games, I'm more of a gameplay guy than a story guy. I'm a fan of the Witcher world. Read some of the books and played all the games, but it's always the same, I get real bored of it mid game, but then I have to push and finish them and then it becomes worth it. Gwent though, omg, my favorite thing about the game.

GOTY it won't be called. FO4 won 0 GOTY awards (for good reason - its a popamole shooter). My prediction is that it will instead be called "Fallout 4 Definitive/Ultimate Edition" or something similar.

That'd be my guess. The entire storyline is mediocre, the building stuff? Neat. But at that the game ranks out at a 6/10.

Sadly Bethesda, you guys haven't figured out that trying to milk people like this is just going to increase piracy.

I won't defend the major dumbing down that Fallout 4 got in the RPG department, but they pushed a long way into other parts of the gameplay. It's no longer really a Fallout game to me, it's more of a mix of Farcry and an open world survival game. With that being said, the game is pure fun. It's my clear GOTY.
