This year was a knockdown-drag out kind of year for video games. Juggernauts like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Fallout 4 are not only tons of fun, they're also packed with so much content it's easier for some other games to become lost in their shadows. This episode of the Game Informer Show is dedicated to reflecting on some of those overlooked games like Transformers: Devastation, Soma, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and more.
Co-hosts Ben Hanson and Tim Turi are joined by Joe Juba and Kyle Hilliard for the discussion of the best games we missed in 2015, and they also stick around to answer listener emails, as well as try something new where listeners call in via Skype! We close out the show by swapping in Andrew Reiner and GI intern Joseph Knoop to talk about our hopes and predictions for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
