Which 2015 Game Will Make Good On Its Own Crazy Hype?
One could make the argument that few games truly make good on all their promises.
Many will blame the hype trains for good titles supposedly falling shy of expectations, but that's not the point here. Instead, we want to know which 2015 game has the best chance of meeting or even exceeding the accumulated hype?
Will it be Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain? Any official new entry in the legendary series has a chance to blow everyone away; we know this. The new style and structure might turn off some long-time old-school followers but for the most part, people really like what they see. Provided the game maintains its stealth focus and it remains a quintessential MGS adventure, the rest should fall into place, right?
But there are other options out there. For instance, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which could redefine how we view role-playing games. Final Fantasy XV might do the same (even if I have to laugh at such a concept). You can't forget about Batman: Arkham Knight or Battlefield: Hardline, either. We also have to consider the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusives; The Order: 1886, Bloodborne and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. One or all of these could end up being absolutely amazing.
Which game do you think will please just about everyone when it finally launches?
