My Favourite Game of 2015

Time to wrap up 2015 in style.

And that’s it this time. This is the final My Favourite Game for this year. And what a year it has been for the show.

Two full seasons, two best of episodes and two special episodes plus an award nomination. All in the calendar year. Plus, celebrating our first birthday back in October. It’s been a hell of a 2015 for the show. And without going into too many details, 2016 is lined up to be a just as great year for MFG.

For now, lets kick 2015 out the door with one final special that twists the meaning of the show very slightly. My Favourite Game has been about asking folks in the industry what their favourite game ever is. For this final special episode this year, the meaning gets slightly bent a bit for a special known in the most ‘durr’ obvious way as My Favourite Game (of 2015).

Guests from across Seasons 1, 2 and 3 come on to talk of their favourite game from 2015 (one guest picked a game not from 2015 – the justification does, kinda, hold up – whilst another cheated and picked two).

16 games (15 from 2015) all selected by 17 guests who’ve been on the show before (18 if you count someone who hasn’t been a guest but is heavily involved with the show – hint: me). You can find a full list of games being discussed as well as the people talking of them below.
