Best Action
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
There's plenty of things we associate the Metal Gear Solid series with, like it’s crazy plot and amazing set-pieces, but top notch gameplay is seldom one of them. MGS V: The Phantom Pain subverted all of our expectations of the series, delivering one of the best stealth action titles in years, if not ever. You can't pick up the Phantom Pain without discovering a new toy to mess around with in this beautiful sandbox, and it's a formula that works fantastically in 20 minute bursts or bleary-eyed day-long sessions.

Best Open World
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
The very concept of an open-world Metal Gear Solid game is totally bizarre, but the bonkers folks at Kojima Productions only went and pulled it off. Not only is MGS V: The Phantom Pain one of the greatest stealth games ever, but it’s testament to how complex, competing game mechanics to lead to the most believable open worlds. Practically everything you think is possible, is. Whether that’s playing a cassette of sheep noises while hiding in a bush to lose the scent of guards, your cardboard box falling apart in the rain, or even mailing yourself inside enemy bases using said box. It’s a stealth sandbox in the truest sense of the word.

Game Of The Year 2015
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Every so often a game comes along that's a little bit special, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is that game. It's got a list of flaws as long as Snake's bionic arm, but all that counts for nothing in the face of some of the finest stealth gameplay we've ever seen. Taking the MGS formula and dropping into an incredible, dynamic open world worked wonders. There's no doubting Phantom Pain is the best playing Metal Gear Solid yet, cramming hundreds of hours of gameplay and a overwhelming number of methods for completing your goals.
