No. 3 – Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a sequel to the 2012 reboot of the famous series coming out later in the year. After the massive success of Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix’s reboot of Lara crofts adventures, the bar is raised high for this sequel and from the E3 footage i’ve seen earlier in the year, it’s going to be a sight to behold! Breathtaking visuals and stunning environments have made this a must have game for 2015.

No. 7 – Xenoblade Chronicles X
Xenoblade Chronicles X is the sequel to the highly loved Xenoblade Chronicles, set in a futuristic world where mech suits are used to defend yourself from an alien race!

No. 8 – Fallout 4
Fallout is the open world series which has made astronomical impacts in the gaming community with its perfect gameplay and a true sense of fright whilst playing in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by nuclear flames. After years of waiting, fallout 4 is releasing in november and i am proud to say i preordered my Pip boy Edition as soon as it was announced! This has been one of the few games that has genuinely made me feel fright even in safe havens and Bethesda are going to save the world a load of trouble with Xbox One Modding! =D It’s just so perfect!
No. 9 – Yooka-Laylee
Yooka-Laylee is a Kickstarted game by Playtonic games, a new studio by Ex Rare employees and is a spiritual successor to one of my favourite games of all time, Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie! It will be platforming bliss with a beautiful soundtrack and breathtaking visuals to be released in October 2016! This is going to be a rare title in a glitchy market.
No. 10 – Mighty N.o 9
Mighty N.o. 9 by Keiji Inafune, the creator of Megaman (aka: The series Capcom hates) and was Kickstarted and made for a release of the 15th of september!

It will be a spiritual successor to Megaman and is the first game I’ve preordered on Steam!
