PAX Prime is a video game conference held every August in Seattle, Washington. Some of the biggest video game developers in the world went to PAX Prime 2015 to show off their upcoming games. While the conference was filled with exciting new games, these were the top 10 of show.
1. Rise of the Tomb Raider
The “Tomb Raider” reboot was one of the most impressive games of 2013, and “Rise of the Tomb Raider” is only enhancing the experience. It is guaranteed to be one of the most visually stunning games released in 2015.
2. Dark Souls 3
“Dark Souls 3” will be extremely difficult, but that should not keep you from playing this great game. FromSoftware took the defense mechanics from “Dark Souls” franchise and combined it with the character mobility seen in “Bloodborne” to make their best game yet.
3. Super Mario Maker
“Super Mario Maker” is the dream game for every Nintendo fan because it allows you to create your own “Mario” levels. The simple creation tools make it easy to create an entire level in just a few minutes.
4. Just Cause 3
“Just Cause 3” is bumping up the wild gameplay that made everyone fall in love with the franchise, which makes it one of the most anticipated games of 2015.
5. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
The “Assassin’s Creed” series has hit a few rough patches, but the new stealth gameplay in “Syndicate” made it one of the most impressive games at PAX Prime 2015.
6. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
“Mirror’s Edge Catalyst” looks and feels a lot like the “Mirror’s Edge,” but that’s not a bad thing.
7. Street Fighter V
The easier controls in “Street Fighter V” will bring in a new set of fans without discouraging die hard “Street Fighter” players.
8. For Honor
Not many people had seen “For Honor” before PAX Prime 2015, and it didn’t disappoint. The large hack and slash battles shown in “For Honor” were enough to get every gamer excited.
9. Halo 5: Guardians
The “Halo 5: Guardians” multiplayer gameplay shown at PAX Prime 2015 will certainly excite fans of the series. The gorgeous graphics and fluid frame rate should make “Halo 5: Guardians” one of the best multiplayer experiences in video game history.
PAX Prime is one of the few large video game conferences that puts an emphasis on indie games. While there were a ton of great indie games on display this year, none of them were able to top the platforming action of “Chasm.”
