  1. Kinda disappointed about Undertale not winning the award for best original music. That game has an amazing sountrack, definitely the best and most memorable I personally have heard in any game in 2015.

  2. Fallout 4=good=world explodes into laughter. Fallout 4 is a glitchy mess with a small, boring, and horribly ugly world. Already boring game mechanics made nearly unplayable by terrible framewrate and game destroying glitches. One of the Worst games of 2015 by far.

    1. I haven’t played it, but judging by the reviews, doesn’t look anywhere near as you’re making it out to be. I’ve heard it was “disappointing” to fans of previous games. I really doubt it’s a bad game on it’s own though.

      1. Me and my friend played it and it was horrible. Maybe you would think the game mechanics were fun ( i don’t) that’s up for debate, but the glitches and fps really was that bad. Oh and the world is small and ugly.

  3. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

    ~*It’s sad Star Wars Battlefront is winning awards out of nostalgia & not because the content is everything we want from Star Wars & more. Because the content sucks! No story mode, missing space battles, it’s mostly online multiplayer with a pathetic number of offline stages, can’t get in & out of your spaceship & have to find some icon instead that gives you the ride til the stage is over or til you get killed and respawn back on the ground without your ride. *sigh* Oh well. This is someone else’s list, anyway. But that doesn’t mean I can’t disagree with it.*~

  4. Super Mario Maker keeps winning so many awards and Game Of The Year nominations. Yet it’s not even a real game. It’s just a “fool around and accomplish nothing” sort of game. It’s only fun in small doses. I never had interest in creating even a single level, because I find that boring. There’s no point.
