2015 was great with The Wither III, Ori and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

But 2019 had:

- Resident Evil 2
- Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair
- Gears 5
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
- Control
- Metro: Exodus
- Outer Wilds
- Dead or Alive 6
- Shenmue III (finally, after 18 years)

Seven-fucking-teen.

Nintendo’s trifecta of Zelda, Mario and Xenoblade 2 made for my most orgasmic gaming year in a long time.

Easily 2015

3 out of the top 4 games of the generation voted by GAF came out in 2015. Witcher 3, Bloodborne and MGS V.

1st place : 2017 - BOTW, Persona 5, DOS2, Mario Odyssey, Cuphead, Automata, Nioh, Horizon, Resi 7, Sonic Mania, Prey, Hollow Knight, XC2, Hellblade, Yakuza 0 Western release.

2nd place: 2020 - GoT, TLOU2, THPS 1+2, Hades, SoR4, Crash 4, Animal Crossing, FF7 Remake, Yakuza Like a Dragon, Nioh 2, Doom Eternal, Wasteland 3, 2077, Mortal Shell, Alyx, Carrion, RE3Make, Dreams

Those two easily stand out as the deepest years of the generation imo.

2020 or 2017, can't pick. Persona 5 is obviously the common denominator here.

2015 was the best year for me by far. BloodBorne, Rainbow Six Siege, Alien Isolation, Witcher 3, etc...
