3. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Because this was a stealth game that offered a ton of options when infiltrating enemy bases in the game’s open-world, with a variety of weapons and tactics to utilize, and Kojima’s trademark humour. The game’s great story is based on events that took place in the 1980s (with some futuristic elements thrown in for good measure) and deals with controversial subjects like underage soldiers and nuclear proliferation in a dangerous and unstable world, and also answers those lingering questions fans of the series had about Metal Gear Solid’s story and characters. All in all, Solid Snake’s latest outing was certainly a triumph, and one of the great games of 2015.
