MGS 5, Witcher 3, Arkham Knight.

Any of those 3. Provided they're released this year.

Right now I'm most looking forward to Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and The Witcher 3

Further down the line I'm interested in Zelda, Quantum Break and MGS V.

By objective metrics such as sales or critical reception? Zelda.

Zelda. It is Zelda which always has hype. This time though there is great mystery surrounding the game.

Metal Gear Solid 5 is the biggest game of 2015. Biggest sales and likely the best critical reception.

Second is Arkham Knight, 3rd is Zelda, Witcher is 4th.

There's no way The Witcher 3 will outsell Metal Gear. It might score higher, but it won't sell better.

In terms of hype, I would say The Witcher 3.

In terms of my most anticipated, No Man's Sky.

I'm honestly thinking this too, I don't know what it is but I think that 343 is going to bat this game out of the park. There's just something about it that makes me think it's going to be Halo/Halo 2 successful and rated just as high. This game is going to move so many Xbox One's it's not even funny, all that 30-40% of the PlayStation 4 user base who abandoned the Xbox platform for Sony, do you think they're really going to be able to hold out?

Not a chance...

That's a tough one...

  1. TW3
  2. Arkham Knight
  3. Persona 5
  4. Xenoblade
  5. FFXV
  6. MGSV

All are interchangeable as my biggest game of 2015, depending upon my mood.

In terms of sales, it should presumably be Halo 5. MGS5 is pretty big, and might do well since it's the first major multiplatform MGS game to be released simultaneously on multiple platforms. Zelda is right there, too.

I dunno, Bloodborne appears to be getting lots of attention, and given its exclusive status I think the Sony fans will be talking about it for the next year. There are probably legit MGS fans out there really pumped but probably won't get the fanfare of MGS4 given it is not exclusive.

On a personal level yes, but it isn't the biggest as Halo 2, 3 threatened for anymore.

For me? The Witcher 3, Arkham, MGS, and Halo

Up to now it is Bloodborne.

Overall it will most likely be MGSV. Halo 5 could be a runner up, but TW3 comes closer to MGSV.

If you're joking, I apologize in advance. Otherwise, wut?

Each main series MGS release alone has outsold each Witcher release alone. MGS2 (only counting the PS2 release) almost equals the entire LTD sales of The Witcher franchise in total lol. Add the Substance release on PS2 and Xbox and MGS2 has sold more than The Witcher franchise.

MGS may not be a household name like Mario, Zelda, Halo, CoD, etc. but it's much closer to that status than The Witcher. If you think MGS is niche then you might as well look at The Witcher series like a couple of indie titles.

Now with Arkham City/Asylum, you do have an argument. Naturally, if you take the Batman IP and craft some great games, you're going to get some great sales. Even then, across multiple platforms (3 with Asylum, 4 with City) it's still not shutting out MGS numbers.

MGS on PS1 (6 million), MGS2 on PS2 (7 million), MGS3 on PS2 (5 million) and MGS4 on PS3 (6 million).

Now if MGS performs this well with single platform releases, how do you think MGSV is going to fair on 5 platforms?

I don't consider MGS to be some sales behemoth, nor do I care. However, a series that consistently breaks 5 million is not niche.

It's without a doubt more popular than The Witcher franchise and sales wise MGSV is going to blow TW3 out of the water. MGS already outperforms TW on single platform releases, now we're going to see it on 5. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it doubles TW3 sales.

Man I wouldn't be surprised if Zelda is the highest scoring game of the year, but we both know it's going to get torn apart in sales by many other releases.

You mean for yourself? If so, cool.

Otherwise it's a AA franchise with so-so sales.

Depends on who you are. Arkham Knight is the only game I've been looking forward to this gen. MGS 5 isn't even on my radar.

Well if we're talking world size... Then it's NMS, if it does actually come out this year. Critical reception I'm betting on Zelda U, sales probably a COD or FIFA and budget I haven't a clue.

Agreed, objectively speaking they'll both be vastly superior games and actually look next gen unlike MGSV and it's shallow ocean of content.

Not sure if they'll outsell it though since Konami is milking the game by putting it on last gen consoles. But the best selling game of 2015 will probably be COD again.

Impossible to choose at this point. I'm split on a 3 way tie between Arkham Knight, Zelda U, and MGS5. I know I'll be getting more replay value out of MGSV than the former two due to its breadth of options and free form nature, but I'm equally hyped for all 3 nonetheless.

@extrodinare101 said:

There is nothing objective about that at all. Quite the opposite actually, you're short selling MGS5 big time.

The Arkham games are excellent, I wouldn't change a thing about them. They're also very simplistic titles mechanically, it's the pacing and encounter design that makes them a home run. Arkham is a shallow ocean, but not to a fault. Just as Mario platformers are shallow games, yet extremely well executed.

Ground Zeroes on the other hand; a limited demo confined to one area, no boss fights, heavily lacking on the abilities and items that will be in The Phantom Pain, completely missing the rpg elements present in TPP, still manages to showcase far more depth and freedom of play than an entire Arkham game.

And that's just the demo.

You're off your rocker with this one.

You're off your rocker with this one.

It is objective, even if we ignore the fact that MGSV looks like utter shit in comparison (open world at the cost of having awful textures) where as Witcher 3 and AK LOOK next gen (enough sense to not put them on previous gen consoles unlike Konami wanting to milk every last dime possible) the Witcher and Arkham games actually have compelling side content, the Zsasz phone calls and the Riddler trophies are about 1000x more compelling and flat out more fun than the side content in Ground Zeroes was hence the shallow ocean syndrome. Hell even Arkham Origins (which wasn't even made by Rocksteady) had optional boss fights that were 1000x better than the side content garbage in Ground Zeroes.

Seriously? Kill the target and escape? Get the data and escape? What a f*cking joke. Phantom Pain won't be able to get by on it's single player, that's probably why they had to throw in a tacked on MP to make up for the lack of compelling content in the single player.

Out of all the major open world games coming out this year, Xenoblade Chronicles X, AK, Witcher 3, Zelda (if it goes open world) MGSV will by far be the weakest if Ground Zeroes was any indication.
