USgamer's RPG Podcast Explores the Best RPGs of 2015

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD: What are our favorite RPGs of 2015? Kat, Bob, Mike, and Nadia explore a packed year in roleplaying games.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), Kat asks Bob, Mike, and Nadia about their favorite RPGs of 2015, and also what their main takeaway from the year is.

My favorite RPG of 2015 is Fallout 4 pretty much by default. Unless you count Steamworld Heist, no other roleplaying game this year has made as large an impression. Overall, I think it's been an above average year for RPGs as a whole, but a little weak for JRPGs. I'm personally really looking forward to next year when we get Persona 5, Fire Emblem Fates, and maybe even Final Fantasy XV.

On that subject, what's your favorite RPG of 2015? Reply in the comments or drop me a line in the messages. I want to know! Also, what's your opinion of this year in roleplaying games? Was it strong? Weak? Again, I want to know. In the meantime, this is the last episode of our show for 2015. We'll be back on the week of January 4th to talk about the upcoming year in RPGs. Thanks for your support, and we'll see you next year.
