Press Start Awards: Writer/Community Overall GOTY

Rise of the Tomb Raider was definitely one of the titles that surprised me the most this year, and in a big way. I had been following development for quite a while, but despite really liking the 2013 reboot I found my hype for the game to be quite contained. I was blown away by the results. It’s not the most ambitious game out there this year, but it does everything it does so well. Rise of the Tomb Raider is thrilling, adventures, fun and everything that you’d want out of a sequel. – Mehdi Zadnane

12458830_961230980636853_1153926130_oPre-release excitement for Bloodborne was high.  To say that Bloodborne delivered for me would be an understatement. Exploring the intricately designed nooks and crannies of Yharnam and it’s surrounds, slowly learning to overcome initially terrifying foes, and slowly piecing together the history of the Healing Church, Byrgenwerth and the hunters kept me absolutely engrossed. Bloodborne kept me coming back. I don’t often go back and finish games a second time, but every time I got to the end of Bloodborne I just had an overwhelming desire to eschew my pile of shame and dive straight back in. The Old Hunters expansion gave me yet another reason to visit Yharnam, and expanded the world and gameplay of Bloodborne wonderfully. Bloodborne is absolutely my favourite game of 2015 – Steven Impson

Nothing comes close to creating such an enthralling, captivating world and such interesting and eclectic characters. And the finales to the main quest lines. My god they were all spectacular. – Jack Foster (Facebook) 

Fallout 4, I’ve played The Witcher 3 but Fallout just sucks me in and won’t let me go. Best game ever. – @Bandsaw13 (Twitter)


The Witcher 3 takes the top for it’s combat being a vast improvement on previous games feeling fast and fluid with the quickstep adding better flow, a beautiful world and really engaging narrative filled with emotional highs, lows and tough decisions. – Jesse Yates (Facebook)

The Witcher 3 by far is the best. It showed you that you can make a open world with FUN side quest. ALSO giving away free DLC shows that they truly care about their fans. – Ken Lars (Instagram)
