Arkham Knight gets GOTY. I'd put Bloodborne and Ori and the Blind Forest as runners up, though feel like I may be forgetting something there. Codename STEAM would get handheld and Ori and the Blind Forest would get DLC.

What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.
Gamergate is still a thing

What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?
I played most of Dark Souls and Super Metroid even though I didn't beat them, so I'll go with Metroid Prime 2. But DS and SM beat that out.

What are your top five most anticipated games for the rest of 2015?

1. Metal Gear Solid 5
2. Fallout 4
3. Rare Replay (SHUT UP, I'M COUNTING IT!)
4. Xenoblade Chronicles X
5. Halo 5: Guardians (though I'm a lot less excited after the no co-op announcement)

What was your favorite new movie from this year?
KUNG FURY!!!!!!!

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?
Favorite show: The Flash
Favorite episode: The Bob's Burgers season finale (forget the name)
Favorite character (adding this in): Captain Holt from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Anything else from this year so far you want to mention?
The game lineup this year now looks a lot lamer than it did at the beginning

Life is Strange actually. It's been a while since I sat down and just got sucked in by a game, and especially a game that is very hit and miss with me.

1. Persona 5 (if it comes to NA this year)
2. Metal Gear Solid V
3. Batman: Arkham Knight (for me)

There is probably more...and now that I"m earning money again I can actually play stuff!

What was your favorite new movie from this year?
Mad Max: Fury Road

What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?
Muse - Drones - yeah, I know it's not technically better but i still like them and I'm a fan and I can't help it. Second place is between the new Florence + the Machine and Father John Misty.

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?
Game of Thrones Season 5.

Anything else from this year so far you want to mention?

This year's E3 was actually amazing. Usually E3 is mostly miss with me but it was just "Final- Metal Gea- SOUTH PARK...PESONA...THE LAST OF US?!?!! AHHHHHHHHH"

Until I get to Batman: Arkham Knight (which will be a week or two from now), I'd say Bloodborne. It's kicked my ass like no other and I haven't had much experience with the Souls games but I kept coming back to it. I plan to buy it next month. So oppressive yet so beautifully wrought.

What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.

Any news concerning Destiny content continues to elude my interest as well as keep me from revisiting it. I don't think Bungie has any idea how to make a game like this (or how to keep producing content that would bring in new players or reign back in old ones) yet I know friends who keep playing it. It's baffling; last year, I was a big champion of this game. For the greater part of this year, I feel so indifferent.

What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?

I'm currently playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. I started it up 2 weeks ago and I'm truly drawn to it. I'm only level 8 and there's so much I have yet to understand but its such a big, beautiful, effectively realized world that I keep coming to it every night, exploring a little more, getting some stuff done. I'm really taken by this world and its mythology. I'm hoping it doesn't monopolize my time enough to keep me from playing other games.

What are your top five most anticipated games for the rest of 2015?

1. Batman: Arkham Knight
2. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
3. Fallout 4
4. Just Cause 3
5. Star Wars Battlefront

What was your favorite new movie from this year?

Mad Max: Fury Road. It's not just a great action film; it's a genuinely great film period. Not just for its spectacle but also for its brains and its soul and its sense of humor. It's also kind of a film we need right now because it reminds us that in the worst scenarios, the only way life improves is when men and women work together.

What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?

Aside from Junkie XL's score for Mad Max: Fury Road and Incubus' new EP, I haven't listened to much new music. Ought to remedy that. Sun Kil Moon has a new album out so I'm going after that soon.

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?

Justified's sixth and final season was virtually flawless: a love letter to Elmore Leonard and a riveting wrap-up to all the crazy that inhabits Harlan, Kentucky. It also makes up for the lackluster previous season (not without its merits). Great villainous turns by Sam Elliot, Mary Steenburgen, Garrett Dillahunt and Johnathan Tucker. Memorable wild card performances by Jeff Fahey and Jolene Carter (who's Eva Crowder had her best arc since the first season). But its all about Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins and their respectful but deadly dance of death ("We dug coal together.") I'll miss these characters and the writing.

Episode? It's finale, "The Promise" was satisfying on many levels. I'm still kinda floored by the fact that it wraps up its conflicts by the halfway point and leaves the rest to an epilogue. Also, what a badass quickdraw.

HM: Netflix's Daredevil, current season of Hannibal.

Anything else from this year so far you want to mention?

The Rolling Stones concert I was at last weekend (at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City) was one of the greatest things I've ever experienced. In their 70s, these geezers still put on the best of shows.

Okay here are mine:

What is your Game of the Year So Far and why? Feel free to make a list if you have played enough games to do so. Maybe give mention to a favorite handheld and downloadable game too if you've played some.

At the moment I can't really decide between Batman: Arkham Knight and Life is Strange. They are really the only games I've loved this year so far, so I will cop out on choosing between them for now. Batman is a super fun Batman game. More my kind of game than Life is Strange, but that is kind of why I'm so impressed with LiS. I never really got the appeal of Telltale's new style of adventure games. Same with other similar games, but Life is Strange finally makes that style of game work for me.

What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.

All the delays. I mean better a game get delayed than come out poorly in some way, but it just felt like every game I was super excited about got delayed. Between not really digging many new releases so far and how lackluster the rest of the year looks for me, it just doesn't seem to be a great gaming year for me.

For a specific game, I'd pick Dying Light. I wasn't really excited, then a bunch of the impressions were really positive and I got excited. All the people that said Mirror's Edge needs to learn from it are just the worst... ugh. And the combat was pretty shit.

What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?

I guess Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The story and art were incredible and it had some fairly fun puzzles. Saints Row IV was a ton of fun too.

What are your top five most anticipated games for the rest of 2015?

I'll throw these six out here:
Uncharted Collection
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rock Band 4
Yoshi’s Woolly World
The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes
Super Mario Maker

What was your favorite new movie from this year?

Haven't seen any new ones yet!

What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?

Florence and the Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is definitely my favorite so far. I also enjoyed Waxahatchee's new album a lot. I'm always a little behind on this so have been looking at midyear lists to try and catch up on stuff. Maybe I will put a nicer list up in the music thread once I have checked out more.

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?

The best was probably Black Sails. A really fantastic pirate show on Starz. Great characters, great action and one really magnificent twist that really stuck with me. It managed to catch me off guard and make complete sense in hindsight. Big improvement for the show over its first year too.

Having said that I think iZombie is the show I enjoyed the most. Sometimes a show is just your kind of show and that is the case with me and iZombie. The witty dialogue, the great lead performance, the unique premise. I love it.

I could probably pick one of a few Black Sails episodes for best episode, but I will go with Game of Thrones "Hardhome."

@Volvo — I love Captain Holt! I think he's the closest to what I'd be if I was in a comedy so I'm trying to learn from him, haha.

What is your Game of the Year So Far and why? Feel free to make a list if you have played enough games to do so. Maybe give mention to a favorite handheld and downloadable game too if you've played some.

So the only game I've bought from this year is Tiltagon for my iPhone... pretty sad. But it's a fun mobile game and the only one I use since I reset my phone!

What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.

I will be disappointed if they don't announce a 1 Tb PS4 soon.


What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?

God of War. This is once of the very few games I spent time on last semester. I got through the majority of it during school which surprised me. I was obviously having fun, because the time flew.


What was your favorite new movie from this year?

Saw Pitch Perfect 2 with my sister. Lots of good laughs.

What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?

I've been listening to the new Drake thing a little. Saw Ed Sheeran in concert and he did Know Yourself, so that was awesome.

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?

I've been watching Rookie Blue with my mum and sister. I can't watch the other crappy cop shows after this.

I haven't played too many new games this year, mainly been playing older games. The only one that comes to mind is Final Fantasy Type-0, but I'm almost 100% positive it won't be my favorite game come end of the year.

What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.

Final Fantasy VII Remake being playable on X-Box One. The old Final Fantasy VII was the game I looked at as my personal symbol of Sony, so I'm sad to see these characters go to another system. For me personally, it's like Mario going to Sony to big Nintendo lovers.

What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?

Dragon Quest 2 and Guacamelee. The later just made you want to keep playing.

What are your top five most anticipated games for the rest of 2015?

1. Metal Gear Solid 5 Phantom Pain
2. Tearaway so more people can experience this fantastic game
3. Uncharted Collection so I can replay some of my favorites again
4. Rockband 4
5. Dragon Quest VII if it is ever coming to the states

What was your favorite new movie from this year?

Montage of Heck, the Kurt Cobain documentary on HBO. It shouldn't be a secret that I'm a big Nirvana fan, and this was a spot on film. Only complaints are lack of Dave Grohl interviews and weird kissy scenes with Courtney Love that I felt were to private to show.

Runners up - Entourage and Jurassic World.

What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?

Daniel Johns album Talk. He's the singer/songwriter from the band silverchair, and he now is a solo artist. Even though it is completely different musically, at its core it is still vintage Johnsy. Preach is my favorite from the album, and I find it hard to believe an album can top this one for me this year.

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?

Girls. I fucking love this show.

Anything else from this year so far you want to mention?

Nope.

I think the only new game I've played is Project Cars. It's fun, but won't be my GOTY at the end of the year unless lots of games disappoint


What was the biggest disappointment for you in gaming this year? It could be a game, a part of a game, an announcement and so on.
The Last Guardian, Shenmue 3, and FF7 HD are all official and still no word on Half-Life 3

What is the best game you played for the first time this year that released in a previous year and why?
I think I first played Mario Kart 8 and SM3DW this year, so those. I don't always love those series but these two games are so great

1. MGSV: Phantom Pain
2. Persona 5
3. Just Cause 3

5. Star Wars Battlefront... maybe

I'm also not super excited for it yet but I hope Rock Band 4 is good.

What was your favorite new movie from this year?
Mad Max Fury Road
HM: It Follows


What was your favorite new (music) album from this year? What about favorite song?
Don't know about album. I want to like the new Kendrick Lamar but I can't get past popular rap personas. I don't want to hear how great people think they are
Favorite song is Loud Places - Jamie XX or Let It Happen - Tame Impala

What was your favorite TV show that aired this year so far? What about favorite episode?
All I watch is GoT
"Hardhome" was the best episode

That depends Aja, are you talking Greek or regular yogurt? Because I agree completely on vanilla but Greek needs some kind of fruit jam to be tolerable
