Lets jump straight into the deep end with this Up For Debate. Jon just said to me The Witcher 3 embarrasses The Shadow Of Mordor. Those two titles won their Game of The Year Awards for 2015 and 2014, respectively. So I wanted to get a feeling from everyone, about how you feel games are progressing.
Did the games of 2015 outshine those from 2014 or are they getting worse? If you are not sure what the best of 2015 and 2014 looked like then you only have to pop over to our area of the site dedicated to it.
It should be a no brainer. As time goes by, people get better hardware and new games are released having been built using that better hardware. So they should just get better and better, right? But of course, some years are a bit of a wash out and some years shine with incredible gaming gems.
The sort of games we enjoyed during 2014 looked like this
2014: Far Cry 4, COD: Advanced Warfare, Wolfenstein, Civ Beyond Earth, The Banner Saga, Dragon Age 3 Inquisition, Stick of Truth, Divinity 2 Original Sin, The Sims 4, Goat Sim, Shadow Of Mordor, Elder Scrolls Online, The Wolf Among Us, Alien Isolation, Dead Rising 3, Borderlands The Pre-Sequel, AC Unity, This War Of Mine, Tropico 5.
Compared to this
2015: ARK:Survival Evolved, Fallout 4, SOMA, ANNO 2205, Gal Civ 3, Dying Light, H1Z1, Life Is Strange, Grand Theft Auto 5(PC), Cities Skylines, Pillars of Eternity, Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Rocket League, Undertale, Her Story, Jotun, Until Dawn, The Witcher 3, StarCraft 2: Legacy of the void, Satellite Reign, Total War Attila, Battlefront, The Order 1886, Project CARS, Magicka 2, Tales From The Borderlands, Heroes of The Storm, Batman Arkham Knight, Mad Max, COD Black Ops 3, Battlefield Hardline, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Shadowrun: Hong Kong, Game of Thrones: iron From Ice
