SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best PS4 exclusive

When it comes time to decide which console to buy, there are a number of factors to consider. Graphical performance and framerate might be paramount to some, but for many it all boils down to the exclusives. Whether you decide to throw your money at Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, or Steam, there are certain games that will be locked for you due to the various exclusivity deals created by the developer...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Wii U Exclusive

Once again Nintendo find themselves in a unique position. Close to (if not) zero third party support makes the Wii U a tough sell when considering the more popular franchises in the gaming community. This undoubtedly puts them on the back foot but considering the first party exclusives the console boasts it’s sometimes difficult to see why the console doesn’t do better. This year alone...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Xbox One Exclusive

The Xbox One saw a shift in fortunes since Phil Spencer took over the role as the man in charge. Since then we’ve seen Kinect being dropped altogether and the focus being placed solely on the games. In 2015 the Xbox One had some fantastic exclusive games, but there was only one very clear winner: Rise of the Tomb Raider It’s only a timed-exclusive, but it’s still an exclusive rig...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Exclusive PC Game

This year has had quite a few upsets for PC fans. The terrible port of Batman: Arkham Knight, its half-measure updates and that feeling like a big publisher just gave up on a whole segment of the market is a pretty big sting. Big names are moving away from PC exclusives, seeing the console market as a sea of Dollar signs. But there have been some gems on PC, those games that you tell console playe...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Game of the Year

Choosing game of the year is no mean feat. The game can’t just be fun. It can’t just have a great story, or pretty graphics. It needs to mix them all in, scoring high in every category. It also needs that little something special that makes you remember the game fondly for ages to come. Its the game you recommend to people without a second thought, its the game you play again when noth...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Expansion

Sometimes games have more story to tell. Be it larger areas to explore, a higher level cap or just a lot of refinement, expansions offer so much more than your run of the mill DLC. I grew up loving expansions and as they become rare as DLC becomes the norm – small, almost inconsequential updates and improvements at times – getting meaty expansions for games that you enjoy are welcome a...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Multiplayer

It can be argued that one can test a games longevity through its multiplayer modes. Sure, not all games have an online multiplayer focus and more often than not there are more flaws and patches involved than actual gameplay. Keeping this in mind it’s a pleasure when a game actually gets it right. The title that took everyone by surprise in the multiplayer domain for 2015 was none other than&...

SA Gamer Awards: Best Remaster / Remake

It’s pretty crazy that remastered and remakes have become such a large category. Love it or hate it, the idea of bringing back older games in a new skin with a few new features is popular and definitely here to stay. You may as well embrace it because you never know when your favourite game might get the treatment. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection There were a lot of candidates for thi...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Co-Op

It’s hard to argue against the fact that just about any game is made increasingly better when there is co-op thrown into the mix. Playing with a buddy and taking on all-comers never gets old, especially when the co-op requires a bit of teamwork and some epic moments. Whether it be couch co-op or online co-op there’s something to be said about the value of the experience when playing th...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Most Disappointing Game

Being hyped for a game is one thing, but being let down and disappointed is another thing altogether. In this category we’re looking at games that promised something fresh, new and, in this particular case, magical. When the magic gets turned on its head, in the most spectacular fashion, it’s hard to find any other game this year that disappointed us as much as this. Metal Gear Solid V...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Most Overhyped

I will admit it, a little hype is good. Who can’t resist getting excited about something new, about something that will tickle our fancy or take us back to our favourite franchise? Then you get games where more is spent on the marketing of the game than the game itself, and a massive hype train is created, something so monstrously gargantuan that when it reaches the poor game’s launch ...

SA Gamer awards 2015: Best FPS

Since the dawn of video gaming players have been highly satisfied with shooting at ‘things’. From zombies, to hell monsters and even robot killing machines. Making a FPS is no easy task however as shooting things can get boring quickly if you don’t inject lots of fun. It’s even harder to keep that fun going sequel after sequel and that’s why our number one FPS of 2015...
