words manifested by: AJ Johnson

END OF YEAR AWARDS
We're doing it again! We're taking a look back at all of the best games from 2015 and giving out super meaningful awards! If you'd like to spend an hour watching a man and a horse as they talk about 2D video games and get up to some shenanigans, then you should proceed immediately to the video below.

If that isn't your bag, then you can just scroll down and just read a list of all the best games below the video, but you will disappoint a certain lovable horse and make him cry real puppet horse tears.

Otherwise, get ready for the best hour of your life!
