One thought on “8Bits is Back! Our Favorite Video Games of 2015

  • A little sad that I wasn’t about to get in on this launch of 8Bits. But I may join in the future.

    A few things that might open this up for discussion:

    The VGAs were this year and they nominated and awarded some of the games that were talked about in our podcast here.

    I’m glad “Undertale” got mentioned in the podcast but nothing was said on “why” it’s a great game that everyone should play. Personally, I think it should have won game of the year in the VGAs for it’s innovation on game interaction or character development and story telling.

    On “Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain”: would have liked to hear talk about Kojima vs. Konami, Konami’s horrifying DLC and the HQ insurance plans you can buy…

    On “Her Story”: it would have been nice to hear a debate on the difference between interactive novels and games and which category it should lean more towards and why.

    On “Battlefront”: it should be mentioned that this is EA’s first Battlefront title. I sort of view the game as a great big advertisement. I didn’t find it to be much anything else other than that. They did nail the “look and feel” of the Star Wars franchise as far as visuals and sound design goes… but the game is found lacking of everything else. To be honest, I think EA just made this game to tack down the exclusive Star Wars License and not to actually create a “Battlefront” title.

    Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 are very buggy and it would be interesting to hear some things about that among the praise.

    The rapture game is a walking simulator much like Dear Esther, just a heads up.

    Overall, it’s a great job on the new 8Bits show people.
