Competing in a crowded field, Yoshi's Woolly World arose as the staff favorite when it comes to genres that are underrepresented in modern gaming. While it's not quite up to the old "Nintendo hard" standards, Yoshi does provide some nice challenge and doesn't condescend to the player. It also doesn't hurt that it's just about the cutest thing since, well, Yoshi's Island.

Tales from the Borderlands (Adventure)
Comedy is hard. Comedy in gaming is very hard. That makes Tales from the Borderlands, which is near-universally praised as hilarious, quite an achievement! Telltale has outdone itself with the writing in this episodic adventure. If you're going to play one Telltale series from 2015, this is the one you should choose – there are even some great sales on it this holiday season.
