As we approach the end of what has been an awesome year for Monocool Interactive and the development cycle for our debut game, Castaways, we decided to list our personal favourite games of 2015!

Here are our Top 3 picks for Game of the Year, followed by a few honourable mentions:

3. Bloodborne

Ross: “I’ve played a lot of games this year, and some of them I’ve absolutely adored. However, for me, one game stands above the rest and it is Bloodborne, developed by From Software and published by Sony.”

“I’ve never been in to the Demon/Dark Souls games and to be honest I gave this one a go purely because it was a PlayStation exclusive and there wasn’t many around at that time – but 65 hours, 120 levels and 17 intense terrifying boss fights later and I was so glad I did. I was blown away by this bloody (literally) descent in to video game madness. The gameplay, level design, art direction and risk/reward mechanic were all 10/10 for me!”

2. Fallout 4

Andrew: “For me its probably Fallout 4. Although it seems like a very slight mistep from Skyrim due to being rushed a little in places and still having some technical issues, Bethesda always pulls the rabit out of the hat. The best Fallout game to date and I’ve played them all, it’s an incredible game and takes up a massive amount of my time just wandering around discovering new quests, locations and enemies – I’m close to 100 hours!“

1. Rocket League

Kevin: “2015 was such an absolutely packed year for big games being released, it was also a year that was so packed that I didn’t get much of a chance to play anything – too busy working on Castaways, y’see? – but of the games that were released this year that I have played, I’ve got to go with Rocket League because it’s created so many fun and memorable moments with friends by creatively using its physics.”

Rhys: “I would also go with Rocket League as well. The first game in years that I enjoy AND play with a control. I am not really into ‘sports’ games but Rocket League however is just too addictive. It ticks all the boxes – competitive, great fun, quick games, not to mention the endless amount of content Psyonix are releasing.”

Ross: “Yeah it’s absolutely the most fun I’ve had gaming this year, and that Back To The Future DLC was a nice add-on!”

Honourable mentions:

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
Rainbow Six: Siege
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
