Xavier Woods recently compiled a list of his top 10 games of 2015, and Splatoon is up there. The WWE superstar ranked the Wii U-exclusive shooter as his third favorite game of last year, right behind Until Dawn and Mortal Kombat X. You can read what he wrote in regards to his ranking of Splatoon below. In addition to his career as a professional wrestler, Woods enjoys playing Mario Kart competitively. He also runs a YouTube channel dedicated to gaming called UpUpDownDown.
Squid… Yeah, I’m definitely a squid.
For being a super cute thing, Splatoon has no right to be as life-consuming as it is. Normally games that are in this type of cartoony world are fun for a bit but then get old after a run through. Splatoon can’t stop and won’t stop. The multiplayer has created some of my saltiest moments in 2015. That moment when you look at the map and you think that you won but then you realize that you lost by .2 percent because your roller didn’t get the back left wall… just the purest Salt. Regardless, changing from kid to squid to sneak up and blast your opponents with paint is a ridiculous concept that I have come to love. Add in the constant updates–stage changes, new weapons and items–and I’m hooked.
