The PlayStation 4 has seen its share of ups and downs in 2015, from the wonderful Bloodborne and unexpected Until Dawn to the disappointing The Order: 1886 and delayed Uncharted 4. It could have been a lot better, but it just as certainly could have been much, much worse.
Still, big-budget exclusives aside, PS4 owners had no shortage of quality games to spend time with this year, including everything from blockbusters on the scale of Metal Gear Solid V to smaller, lesser-known gems like OlliOlli2, there was something for everyone, no matter your disposition.
Here are Destructoid’s nominees for Best PS4 Game of 2015…
- Life is Strange
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
- OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood
- Rocket League
- Tales from the Borderlands
- The Talos Principle
- Until Dawn
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
[Incomplete products like Steam Early Access titles, and episodic titles that are not fair to assess as stand alone experiences, without a full episode count, were not eligible for this year’s awards. The cutoff for entry into Destructoid’s 2015’s Game of the Year awards is December 4, 2015.]
