    We have offically started! :D

    I havent played I am setsuna yet.. even though it feels like I really should! might be perfect for my Vita?

  • I've only played 5-6 games released this year so while not perfect it didn't have to beat out much to make it on my list. I guess I did make the time to play it which says something though.
    I really enjoyed the art style, atmosphere, and music. Oh that music! I still listen to the soundtrack when working or doing stuff around the house when I'm trying to chill out, so beautiful. It was nice romp through a JRPG and I guess I could credit it for the resurgence of my love for JRPGs (I'm really excited to play Trails in the Sky whenever I can make time, but gosh is this season crowded). The game wasn't perfect but I enjoyed where it was coming from and really hope Tokyo RPG Factory makes something else.



  • Like some others, I too only played actually pretty much exactly five games of 2016. Means they're all on my list. Well, I did really like them all (maybe the #5 not that much), so it's all good.

    A bit shame that I didn't have the time to try out The Last Guardian, Hitman, The Witness, Watch Dogs 2, even the new Doom. I think they'd been some solid contenders to make it to the points.



  • This is a game that crashed on me after not saving for a while. While not worth to replay all that big chunk again, it was not a bad game but it was really pandering to the old-school audience, which is not me.



  • I really did enjoy I am Setsuna, but there were some issues I would've wanted adressed. For instance, combat positioning was important to the outcome of a battle, but you couldn't really control where everyone would stand. Still a bit confused on the fluxes too..
    I would've loved to played this on the Vita, but unfortunately it was a Japan thing only.

    The overall presentation and story were all really good and being able to not include the main character in the party was a fun surprise! It's a good first game for the Tokyo RPG Factory team and I am psyched about what they will come up with next!

    EZA Review



  • WIth Final Fantasy being such an eclectic franchise, this is one of the entries I decided to pass on. I really enjoyed the EZA review, as I felt it gave me the most complete picture of the game. And through Mr. Damiani's impressions, I knew it wasn't for me.



  • Huh, with that, will FF get two spots in the top 25? If so, that's quite a feat for any franchise.



  • a game i will probably pick up after my trails binge is over and finished with persona 5 nioh and neir

  • I completely forgot this came out this year, hence the reason I skipped it. Went completely under the radar for me.



  • World of Final Fantasy does look charming, but I didn't get around to play it. I might look at it if it comes to PC, which is my main platform these days.

    This is exactly how I felt. From hearing about it WoFF just didn't seem like a game that I needed to make time for.



  • I will be grabbing I Am Setsuna on the Switch when I can it looks like a great throwback JRPG. Everything I've seen, read and heard about the game has me interested.

    The demo for World of Final Fantasy put me off it completely. It just seemed so hollow to me for some reason. Props to Square for trying something different and new with the Final Fantasy IP though. But I will be giving this one a miss.

    2 JRPGs in the list so far. Is this the start of a trend? :P



  • @thenerdtheword At least Final Fantasy XV will appear, unless people here forgot to add it to their lists. But I'm not sure if many other RPG's will appear.



  • I remember liking the demo for World of FF, and I really liked the look of the characters, but I'll doubt I'll actually get to it at any point.



  • @jipostus FF XV is the one game I've yet to really dig into (I'm still in Chapter 1), so I didn't put it on mine. Though from the tiniest of slices, I hope it received a lot of nominations.



  • @Brannox If I Am Setsuna made the list with a #3, two #4, and a #5 votes (a score of 8) then I would imagine Final Fantasy XV will be on the list somewhere.
