I've been trying to buy Escape Dead Island all day for $4.  I keep getting an error saying to try again.  I've tried like 10 times.  Anyone else seeing this.  I read the last page of this thread and didn't see anyone talking about it.

 

edit:  Nevermind.  I'm home now and remembered I wanted to try buying directly from my Xbox 360.  I was able to purchase it there.  Was not able to buy it earlier in the day through xbox.com.

I felt it was too hard to narrow down a single game that had both the best multiplayer and best single player, therefore I separated my GOTY based on that.


GOTY single player: Arkham Knight
GOTY multiplayer: R6 siege and Halo 5

Here are my runner up's that I have started but haven't completed:
Tomb Raider 
Fallout 4
Witcher 3
Life is Strange

Like most things related to video games I have a spreadsheet.  I told a non gaming friend that once and he laughed at me hard.

I have a spreadsheet of my games just to keep track of what I own,  I also maintain a small list of what I plan on playing next to help my indecision on what to play next. 

 

Also it might help others to know I used True achievements GotY voting to help sort what I have played(you can click a button that only lists your 2015 games you have played).

Yep, are you trying to buy it on the website or on your system?
I ran into a similar problem with Ultimate Alliance.... and ended up missing out on the deal.

Even worse, since I didn't try buying it WITH my console, they told me they couldn't help correct the mistake on their side.

(I can give more details if you like)

The final day of the year...

So, I'm asking the regular crew what their fave game (or two or three) of the year is. Don't need an essay on why - just what game(s) gave you the most joy this year? Don't be offended if I didn't list you. I just did top of mind contributors. Anybody can answer my question - we are all CAG bros. Happy new year, guys.


Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, Fallout 4, and Destiny: The Taken King.

Hmm, my top three this year?  If we're limiting it to 2015 releases I would say:

 

Hatsune Miku Project Mirari DX - Outstanding rhythm game that's probably my overall GOTY.  Just hit all the right noes so to speak.

The Order 1886 - Really enjoyed this one when it came out even if it's short and slow and half walking simulator (I like walking simulators).

Invisible, Inc. - To espionage what XCOM is to fighting aliens.  Really great strategy game.

 

RotR is probably in the group that would have just missed out on the awards with it's far weaker story (in my opinion) than the first game, though still being the best XB1 game I played this year.

As far as games released this year, I guess Rare Replay was my GOTY. Or Gears of War: Ultimate. I finished the campaign and played a little multiplayer before I realized I'm burnt out on the franchise, but at least the game delivered what was promised. This year sucked for me. I'm sure Witcher 3 is good, but medieval action fantasy RPGs aren't my thing. I also feel like I got my fill of Fallout just from 100%ing Fallout 3 and its DLC, I don't really feel the need to play any of the sequels.

 

Rock Band 4's failure devastated me. No, really, it's the last time I'm ever, ever, EVER pre-ordering a game. It was so depressing, I gave up on playing video games for a couple months because of that piece of shit.

Should have bought GH Live instead!

I like the idea of GHTV, but I play Rock Band for the drums, which didn't work right out of the box and had to be fixed with a firmware update released a week after the game came out. Drum rolls STILL don't register correctly, and it's a software problem, not hardware. They just haven't gotten around to fixing that part yet.

 

Though that doesn't even make the list of my top 50 problems with the game.

I beat 25 games and 6 DLC packs this year. If I would not have spent so much time on Titanfall and Destiny I am sure I could have beaten another 10 games. 48 a year is pretty rough.

Games that can't be beaten throw a wrench in things a bit. The last time we did this I was playing a lot of War Z (I know!) Which messed up my progress a bit.

But 4 games a month really isn't that difficult. A lot of the arcade games and such are only a few hours long and can be beaten in a day or two, same with a lot of the newer FPS campaigns.

Also, looks like Jiryn beat enough games for all of us combined this year

I wish I could include the broken MCC but that game came out in 2014.  For 2015 I would have to say Tony Hawks Pro Skater 5.  That game wasn't worth my free redbox rental.

Destiny.

Did it have to come out this year? The deer God was pretty terrible for me too.

This is a tough question for me because I rarely buy games without watching a twitch stream or reading about them so I usually already know if I will like it or not before hand. Destiny I bought day one because of Halo and didn't like Destiny but I don't make that mistake too often. GWG are ones I get for free and try without any knowledge sometimes so those would be the ones I find out I don't like by playing.

Despite the decent multiplayer, Black Ops 3. The lighting ruined the game. Graphics were subpar. The story tried so hard to be a mindf*** like Blops and utterly failed. Aside from Chris Malorney, the acting sucked. Bad checkpoints. Bad pacing. And probably the worst ending for such a big budget game...and I say that after hearing that annoying Limey blather on in Pneuma. I give it an F-

Oh man, this is tough, usually I enjoy bad games even, I'd say Destiny as well but I played that last year not this......uhhhhhh Yaiba I guess? I did that earlier in the year, and it was just kinda plain, had some good music though at least. Either way, thanks for the contest and good luck everyone!

Everyone saying Destiny is being super harsh. Seriously the game has its flaws but there is absolutely no denying that the core gameplay itself is some of the best we have had for a FPS.

 

That being said I have been fairly picky with my game playing this year since time has been a bit more tight than usual but Velocity X2 and Toy Soldiers War Chest. I just could not grasp why people liked Velocity, I found it very dull and boring myself. Toy Soldiers was actually a massive let down simply because the other two were so fantastic and yet this one they somehow ruined with glitches. The game itself would crash on me all the time and multiple times I ran into glitches that would cause entire matches to have been for nothing because they would become unable to finish.  Pair that with the really strange choice of microtransactions and army building that really didn't impact squat I would say that Toy Soldiers was my biggest flop I played this year. 

 

Also, really awesome of you to give away a $10 code; thanks for the giveaway! : )
