2015 has been a year filled with new things for me and my family. I got a new job that has allowed me to spend more time at home and subsequently more time playing games. I also picked up a PS4 which is new as I’ve always waited till a system was “on it’s way out” to pick it up on the cheap and have an extensive library of games to play. As the year has drawn to a close and I’ve spent weeks thinking over the good times, you are about to read the list of the best times. These are my top ten games of two thousand fifteen.
Before 2015, I hadn’t played a Guitar Hero game since Guitar Hero 2 on my PS2. I was a late adopter of the PS3 and plastic instrument games were on their way out of the market.

Now I love me some strategy games, Disgaea, Tactics Ogre, Advance Wars, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and many others, so when Tony came to me with a review code for Etrian Mystery Dungeon, I was excited to experience a fresh take on this style of game. Having never played an Etrian Odyssey or Mystery Dungeon game, I walked into this with very little idea of what to expect.
What You Need To Know
EMD is a collaboration title using the gameplay style of Spike Chunsoft’s Mystery Dungeon games with a coat of Etrian Odyssey paint to brighten things up. The game starts off by having you create a character and a guild for exploring the mysteriously changing dungeons around the town of Aslarga. The town serves as a strictly menu based point of operation for your guild where you can visit the inn, buy weapons, items and food, recruit new guild members, and speak to NPCs with the ultimate goal of preparing to leave town and explore the dungeons.
