2015 has been a big year for Video Game Hangover. We recorded our 200th episode. We raised (with your help!) hundreds of dollars for charity in this year’s Extra Life marathon. The Order: 1886 came out.

This is also our fifth year doing pods on the Internet. As per VGH tradition, we’re ending it with our drunktacular call-in show, but since this is the fifth one, we felt like we should do something extra special. Which means… we don’t actually know. But while we figure it out, you can still call in with a question!


D.J.’s top games of 2014

D.J.'s top games of 2014

If I were to start predicting my game of the year lists in January of that year, I think I’d usually be able to get at least one or two games correct. There’s often a notable game from a favorite developer or series that seems like a safe bet—sure things like Monster Hunter, Metal Gear, or anything by Yasumi Matsuno. Had I guessed at 2014’s list I would have struck out completely, which is disappointing because it means some of the games I was most looking forward to ended up falling short of my expectations. On the other hand, so many fun and surprising games appeared last year that I had no trouble filling the empty spaces.

Honorable Mentions (in no particular order)


Existing somewhere between Call of Duty and Unreal Tournament, Titanfall is one of the freshest first-person shooters I’ve played in years. The giant Titan mech suits, sort of a democratized version of other games’ killstreaks and vehicles, may be the feature attraction, but I found the parkour-inspired, out-of-mech movement system to be the real star. I quickly reached a point where I’d only climb into my Titan if I really had to—it was too much fun running on walls or discovering a new aerial route to the next objective.

Take our 2015 listener survey!

It’s our fifth year of podcasting about video games. How are we doing?

As we hinted at on last year’s season finale, we’d like to hear what all of you think of the show. (Beyond all the effusive Twitter praise, of course.) To make it as easy as possible for you, we’ve put together a quick, less-than-five-minutes-long survey with a few questions about the VGH, games, and podcasts in general. We’d really appreciate it if you could take a few moments of your time and fill it out. Be completely honest; if there’s something you think we could be doing better—tell us!

As added incentive, we’ll be handing out a few Amazon gift cards to respondents (selected at random). Finally… proof that your opinions have value, and that it’s awkwardly quantifiable! (Update: The gift card giveaway has ended, but you can still take the survey.)

Seriously though, we’d really appreciate hearing from you.
