TOP 10 GAMES OF 2016 (SO FAR)



  • I really haven't played much this year but here's a few ranked somewhat

    1. Uncharted 4 - I'm not ashamed to say I absolutely loved this game, everything about it. A perfect ending to the series
    2. Blood and Wine - Super fun and surprising and a great ending to the story in my opinion
    3. Furi - I thought this game was amazing.. even though I wanted to quit at some points, I couldn't pull myself away and found myself thinking about this game while I played others.
    4. Firewatch - Its not perfect but I really enjoyed playing it, and although it didn't totally pay off I'm still happy about the way I felt during the game. Also that's just the way life works out sometimes and I respect that they didn't force a different ending that wrapped everything up nicely
    5. Fallout 4 - (I'm counting it because I just played it recently :D )


    1. The Witness
    2. Dark Souls III
    3. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
    4. Overwatch
    5. Inside
    6. Ratchet and Clank
    7. Trackmania Turbo
    8. Gravity Rush Remastered
    9. Furi
    10. Abzû

    Games that were close to making it into the list :
    Firewatch, Star Fox Zero, Tricky Towers and the NiOh Alpha+ Beta
    I still need to play Doom,Quantum Break and Superhot



  • I bet Pokemon will take a high spot once it's out, and maybe Final Fantasy XV, hopefully. Until then:

    1. Fire Emblem Fates
    2. Uncharted 4
    3. Doom
    4. Metroid Federation Force (I know, I'm surprised too.)
    5. Star Fox Zero
    6. Pokken Tournament
    7. Coming soon
    8. Coming soon
    9. Coming soon
    10. Coming soon.

    Admittedly, I haven't played too many games this year, and the end of the year will certainly change this list.



  • in no particular order (also not all released in 2016)
    Resident Evil Revelations
    Metroid Prime Federation Force (surprisingly good, check it out)
    Pokken Tournament
    DOOM
    Monster Hunter Generations
    Quantum Break
    Zero Time Dilemma
    Rise of the Tomb Raider



  • 1. Stardew Valley

    I don't think I have played any other game that has come out this year other the Overwatch open beta, and other demos. I suppose I'm just really really selective about what I buy and play.

    If I had a Wii U I would probably have gotten Tokyo Mirage Sessions, since it looks way too appealing, but there's hasn't been anything that I just couldn't wait for.

    1. Uncharted 4 - An absolutely fantastic way to end Drake's story. I honestly loved every minute of it.

    2. Overwatch - The last time I was this into a competitive multiplayer game was battlefield 3. I just love how accessible it is and how it suits so many different playstyles.

    3. Dark Souls 3 - Return to form for the Souls series after 2 was a slight step in the wrong direction. I imagine it will only get better with the DLC too.

    4. The Witness - Absolutely fantastic puzzle game. Been waiting years for it and it really delivered. The most impressive thing for me is I never felt like I got frustrated, when I couldn't solve something, I'd leave it, come back to it and figure it out.

    5. Severed - Touch based dungeon crawler game on the vita. Really interesting idea. Exploring is rewarding, the enemy design is really good and it has a pretty sad narrative too.

    6. Abzu - Just an absolutely incredible visual and audible experience. I see why people are saying it's just a worst Journey but that's honestly not a bad thing. I'll remember more parts from this game than the majority of games I play.

    7. Salt and Sanctuary - 2D Souls like game, maybe even too much like souls. The more I played it the more I saw it had a bit more to offer. Still wish it was out on Vita.

    8. Zero Time Dilemma - Firstly, play Virtue's Last Reward first if possible. ZTR is absolutely bonkers but in a good way. There were a few things that annoyed me so I prefer VLR but it's still a fantastic conclusion to the trilogy.

    9. Firewatch - This is probably a divisive one. I can definitely see why people were disappointed with it but I'm always someone who loves character development over the story. Don't get me wrong, I love a good story but that's just my preference. This has that in abundance, is visually stunning and has a very nice soundtrack.

    10. Furi - Basically boss rush mode. It's one of those games where you get better as you play it. The bosses are pretty varied, they all have a few different forms that keep things interesting. I even enjoyed the moments in between (just press x) walking to the next boss.

    Realistically this will be my top 10 for the year. I left travelling before NMS came out and I'll miss the rest of the year for console games (Still coming to terms that I'll miss The Last Guardian launch).

    The only games that might get in are handheld games.. so possibly Pokemon Sun/Moon, DQ Builders, Darkest Dungeon, World of Final Fantasy. If I get around to any of them.

  • @FF7Cloud That's an, uh, complex numbering scheme you've got there.



    1. Monster Hunter Generations (sorry, I can't read japanese yet Haru) i'm addicted to this franchise on pace to put a year of my life into it by the time i turn 25.
    2. Dark Souls 3-never played a souls before this year and boy do i love everything about it. In my top 3 of all time for sure now can't wait to go back and play the previous.
      3.Fire Emblem Fates-Ok the story could have had been much better, grear concept but plot plays out poorly. But the gameplay is some of the best in the series, and i appreciate any franchise willing to take a risk.
    3. Uncharted 4-Not a game for me, but watching my little brother play all of these has been a blast, too much respect for naughty dog.
    4. Furi-some great broth, indie gem, hardcore, mysterious, all around blast.
    5. Farcry Primal-bought this cuz as i said i appreciate any franchise willing to take a chance, and this one works so well, a blast if oyu can get it cheap.
    6. well everything else ive played has been backlog so........yeah. Best is yet to come tho


    1. Uncharted 4: The slam dunk for GOTY!
    2. Overwatch
    3. The Witness
    4. Ratchet and Clank
    5. Hitman
    6. Downwell
    7. The Division
    8. Alienation
    9. Firewatch
    10. Abzu


    1. Street Fighter V (my favourite game of this gen so far)
    2. Overwatch

    That's what I've bought this year. I really want to play Dark Souls 3 and the new Ratchet game, but Street Fighter V is taking up all of my gaming time right now. My next purchase will be Dragon Quest VII in September.



  • Ranking things is stupid... Here's my revised list after this absolutely bonkers week of releases on PS4 (Deus Ex + Nioh Beta + Inside = no chill).

    1. Monster Hunter: Cross (You're still western filth casuals for not playing Monster Hunter.)
    2. Inside (What did you do? What did you do?!? That man's body— You have to— #Masterpiece)
    3. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (I know it's perhaps the ultimate hipster move to bump this down for Inside, and I could give a damn whether your game is nonverbal or all cutscenes... but I just didn't like the story that much.)
    4. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (If an Elder Scrolls game can play like this in part I'll die happy.)
    5. Gravity Rush Remastered (I feel really bad bumping this down the list two slots, but I have a feeling Gravity Rush 2 will break that Vita ceiling.)
    6. Abzu (Still a must-play, but Abzu is not to Journey as Inside is to Limbo. Granted, Playdead had a much lower bar to top.)
    7. Fallout 4: Survival Mode (Still cheating, still fun. Beds. #GOTY)
    8. Odin Sphere Leifthrasir (I really need to finish this, but it's so long and grindy... Buh, PS2!!! shakes fist Gamecube won 6th gen!)
    9. The "Nioh is still good but there is absolutely no way in hell it is coming out in 2016" spot.
    10. Reserved for whichever game is kicked down by Gravity Rush 2, Final Fantasy 15, or The Last Guardian. If all goes well, my Fallout 4 and Gravity Rush (2012) cheat slots will have to go.
    11. The "amusement I feel from watching Firewatch be continually outclassed by the progressively more amazing indie releases" slot. Not a recommendation.


  • Doom
    Deus Ex mankind divided (will getting soon)

    Doom is by far best game this year so far. and best FPS of decade. Its a Masterpiece



    1. Uncharted 4
    2. Ratchet and Clank
    3. Overwatch
    4. I am Setsuna
    5. Firewatch

    My top 10 is only top 5 unfortunately..
    But here's a top 5 games I wish I played this year in no particular order!

  • Unfortunately, having a new baby this year and a now 3 year old son that requires my attention as well hasn't given me the time I used to have to play games. I can give you a top 3, which are the only new games I've played, and that IF you are allowing me to list Blood and Wine for The Witcher 3.

    1. Blood and Wine DLC
    2. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (haven't beaten it yet, but awesome game)

    When my kids start school in several years, I'll try and update it.
