It’s official: Fallout 4 is the nation’s favourite video game of 2015. That’s according to a recent survey by the UK’s leading video game retailer, GAME, who is launching an exciting competition to win £2,015 pounds worth of reward points in January.
Despite the eagerly anticipated return of the Master Chief in Halo 5: Guardians, or the frenzy which accompanied the launches of FIFA 16 and Star Wars Battlefront, it was Bethesda’s epic action thriller, Fallout 4, which topped the charts of must-have games. Breaking sales records in just its first 24 hours, the open world game really captured the imagination of UK gamers.
In second place came The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, while Batman Arkham Knight and the latest instalment from the ever-popular Ubisoft franchise, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, helped make up an elite list of top titles from 2015, as chosen by the GAME community.
The Top 10 games of 2015:
1. Fallout 4
2. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
3. Batman Arkham Knight
4. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
5. Star Wars Battlefront
6. Call of Duty Black Ops 3
7. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
8. Destiny: The Taken King
9. Halo 5: Guardians
10. FIFA 16
GAME is giving its customers even more reason to get involved with the list of favourites, offering one lucky gamer the chance to win an amazing £2,015 worth of reward points when they purchase just one game from the 2015’s Top 10. Those buying a game in-store or online will be entered into a prize draw to be drawn before the end of February, with 2,015 runners-up prizes also on offer of 2,015 reward points.
To get involved, head to your local GAME store to purchase a game of your choice or go online at game.co.uk. Gamers can also share their thoughts on the list and look ahead to the some of the hotly anticipated games of 2016 by tweeting #MYGAMEOF2015.
If for whatever reason you are considering trading in your Wii U console then you might want to pay UK retailer GAME a visit. The company has begun emailing customers informing them that if they do decide to trade-in their console they will be given £20 extra credit. If this is something that interests you then pay your local GAME store a visit.
UK video game retailer GAME has today opened pre-orders for the Hyrule Warriors Legends Limited Edition bundle. The special bundle comes complete with the game and also a special Compass watch. The retailer says that the bundle is exclusive to them, but the Nintendo UK Store usually stocks the limited edition merchandise too. If you want the Hyrule Warriors Legends Limited Edition bundle then it will cost £49.99 and is due to be released in March.
It looks like UK video game retailer GAME is in trouble once again as share prices have plunged after the company announced disappointing holiday sales. The company strangely blames the switch from Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as impacting on profitability. That’s rather odd as both consoles have been performing extremely well in the UK. MCV says that over a third of the value of retailer GAME has been wiped this morning, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
Update: Nintendo UK Store has emailed me to say that the Shovel Knight amiibo has been delayed. They are expecting it to be with customers on December 14th.
Lots of people are looking forward to getting their hands on the first third party amiibo, but it seems as though customers who pre-ordered the Shovel Knight amiibo via GAME are being told that their orders have been delayed. Amazon and the Nintendo UK Store have the amiibo listed with a December 11th release date, but GAME has informed customers via email that it has been delayed until December 18th. The reason behind this is currently unknown.
We just wanted to let you know the release of Shovel Knight amiibo has been delayed until 18/12/2015. Your pre-order is still valid and hasn’t been cancelled. You don’t need to make any adjustments to your order.
