While there were some huge hits in the world of gaming this year, many of them were expected to be big. After all, it's not like no one knew Fallout 4 or The Witcher 3 would be successful. To me, it's always interesting to look at are the ones that weren't expected to be successes that were, or the ones that came out of nowhere to become big hits. These eight games fit that bill perfectly.

Think we missed one? Tell us what it is in the comments!

Until Dawn

Until Dawn wasn't really intended to be a sleeper hit. After all , it had a Hollywood voice cast (including Hayden Panettiere), looked great on screen, and was basically a callback to the slasher films of the 1980s. SOmehow, either through poor marketing, delays, or what have you, the game was under the radar until it launched, when it promptly exploded. Until Dawnseemed to be everywhere on the streaming scene, and its mix of great atmosphere, choices with real consequences, and solid voice action won over lots of gamers.
