Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Chris's Top 5 Games of 2015

I went into 2015 with the longest list of anticipated games I can remember. With so many games delayed from 2014 and the prospect of new entries in some of my favorite series, 2015 had the potential to be one of the best years for gaming. Along with new entries in respected franchises like Metal Gear and Fallout, there was a surprising amount of top shelf indie games like Undertale and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture released as well. Even with games like Uncharted 4 and Persona 5 being delayed until next year, I can confidently say that 2015 will be remembered as one of gaming's strongest.

Grant's Top 5 Games of 2015

Looking over my top 5 games of 2015, I noticed a trend; all five of my choices have some outstanding soundtracks. There was the dreamy indie rock of Life is Strange, the licensed eighties music in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the hypnotic electronica in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the angelic choral music of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, and the orchestral/rock music of Destiny: The Taken King. Each soundtrack stood out in its own way and made my gaming sessions that much more enjoyable. 2015 was a fantastic year for games but it also brought the realization that it's almost 2016 and I'm still... playing Destiny.
