2015 Video Game Power Rankings: November

Welcome to the Critically Sane monthly Power Rankings for November 2015. As always the list is based on a mix of our opinions of what we’ve played this year as well as conjecture on what we think is going to be awesome in the months to come. The five of us each submit a list of 10 titles which are given a point total in reverse order (so 1st place gets 10 points, while 10th gets one), and then the totals are combined to come up with this monthly list. This is our last list before we sit down to deliberate on the Critically Sane Game of the Year and we still have much to play. (Last month’s rankings)

8t. Just Cause 3 (8 points, no change) –
Just Cause 3 has been a steady 7-8 points since summer time. Hopefully it stays here after launch.

8t. Total War: Attila (8 points, +2 position change) –
Tony has to make sure a strategy game is in our lovely, eclectic list.

8t. Guitar Hero Live (8 points, new) –
I don’t think anyone saw this coming…………….

8t. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege (8 points, +2 position change) –
No campaign mode needed for Don, who just wants to shoot people through those pesky things called walls.

7. Destiny: The Taken King (12 points, -1 position change) –
Bungie may have sucked Don and Chris back in, but it’s slowly slipping back to the rear end of the charts.


6. Star Wars Battlefront (15 points, returning) –
It’s an exciting year to be a Star Wars fan. Or, in Don’s case, just a fan of DICE shooters.

5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (23 points, -1 position change, 1 first place vote)
Metal Gear Solid also drops a position to allow Master Chief into the top 3. Snake feels the pain.

3t. Rise of the Tomb Raider (31 points, -1 position change, 2 first place vote) –
Two first place votes, and still dropped a position. Lara is still bound to shake things up when the guys get together and argue which game was the best this year.

3t. Halo 5: Guardians (31 points, +3 position change) –
Halo 5 makes the biggest jump, thanks in part to Don joining the rest of the boys for a fun night in the arena.


2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (32 points, no change, 1 first place vote) –
Still not forgotten, Wild Hunt remains a strong contender for our GOTY.

1. Fallout 4 (36 points, no change, 1 first place votes) –
Fallout 4 has been a juggernaut on this list since it was announced. A juggernaut in sweet, sweet Power Armor.

If you had to predict your top 10 list at the end of 2015, what would it look like? Let us know in the comments below.
