Both Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Order: 1886 were the two great blockbuster titles in 2015 with the latter being the most impressive (technical) achievement in videogaming yet. The Witcher 3 showed how far we still are away from really great roleplaying games.
Oh, and funny sidenote: Do you remember when Metal Gear Solid V came out and everyone was hyping and writing about “visionary”. Uhm, yes, that happened.

Movies

Mad Max Fury Road

Not just the best movie this year but also one of the very few greatest cinematic experiences ever. Something like this happens once every decade.

Ex Machina

Incredible powerful experience. I love single location (Buried, All is Lost) and movies about artificial intelligence. This was no exception.

I almost could not understand a single line but true cinematic experiences are about the power of images anyway. And this was one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen.

Star Wars

This was not a sequel but a reboot and the first time I felt like a kid again when watching a movie. In a way there was way too much going on without any time to breathe and unfortunately there wasn’t a great new theme musically but the first few minutes after the credits I literally couldn’t move. After over 30 years (!) Star Wars is back.
