The Halo Saga has been one of the most enduring storylines of the last decade and its latest addition is going to be Halo 5: Guardians. It is the second chapter of the Reclaimer saga and is touted to be the most advanced game so far in the series. According to the developers, the game needed the creation of a brand new game engine. Also the shift to Xbox One was necessary, as the hardware of the 360 could not handle the full scope of the game. There will be a few new characters in this game and we can expect another treat from 343 Industries. This series was one of the pioneers of the third person shooter genre, so we can expect only the best.

So there you have it. That’s our take on the top 5 games of 2015. Of course, the list is subjective and there are other great games to look out for in the coming year. But one thing is certain: 2015 is going to be a landmark year for the gamer community. With all these new games and controllers, there is lot to be thankful for.
