The Best Video Games Of Summer 2015
For most of us, “summer fun” means beach days, parties, driving with the windows down and general debauchery, but for some hanging out at home and doing absolutely nothing is the ideal way to spend a few months. (No judgment.) And if your “nothing” includes playing copious amounts of video games, then you’re in luck because some pretty badass games are due out this summer, including:
Available on PC and Mac, this multi-player game features heroes from Blizzard’s franchises, namely Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft. The game features several new twists on the general Blizzard formula and will appeal to both newcomers and experts.
This fantasy game provides opportunities for questing with friends in a world full of magic, lore and politics. The newest iteration in this award-winning series is definitely worth checking out.
This third and final game in Rocksteady’s series features a huge sandbox version of Gotham and includes the Batmobile. In Arkham Knight, Batman must battle the Scarecrow, who has attacked Gotham City and forced its evacuation.
If you’re a fan of this series, you’ll definitely be happy with the technological upgrades this time around. Kratos has a new weapon this time around, called Cestus – a pair of gauntlets that provide him with better means of attack – but the real enhancements here are to the technology.
The 16th installment of this game features enhanced controls, like the QB maneuvers and a risk/reward catch and pass/defend system. Gotta Be Mobile ranked the game’s top five must-see gameplay videos, so check them out here.
Many experts believe that this game will be creator Hideo Konami’s final in the series and it doesn’t disappoint. A more vastly open terrain than other installments allows for more strategy and improved gameplay.
