'Rocket League'

Psyonix' "Rocket League" pits teams of drivers against each other in online games of vehicular soccer.

(For: PlayStation 4, Windows, Linux and Mac OS, and eventually Xbox One)

"Monster truck soccer" sounds like a novelty, like shovelware — not like the most reliably fun multiplayer game of 2015. It's also the one I still return to most, almost six months after its release. With a control scheme you can master in seconds but physics you couldn't map with a Ph.D., plus frictionless online, it's a wondrous model of teamwork colliding with chaos. All these games later, every goal still feels like a triumph.
