What’s more lit than video games? Nothing, video games take away boredom and make you forget about all the negatives (well, until you start to rage). 2015 came out with a lot of fun and exciting games, ranging all the way from sports to shooters. These are just a few of the biggest games that came out this year.

NBA 2k16 is a basketball game produced by 2k Sports and a special producer, Spike Lee. 2k16 has a new MyCareer mode where you have a family and you actually start in high school, and you work your way up through college, until you get to the NBA. It has a new soundtrack created by DJ Khaled. There are four different cover athletes, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Anthony Davis, and special edition, Michael Jordan. This game is available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.  

Madden 16 is a football game produced by EA Sports. This version takes Madden to a whole another level with overhead cameras for new player Spotlights and closer and more accurate Highlight Reels.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a military science fiction first person shooter video games. Great game to play with friends with a great Online Multiplayer mode.
