The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2016!

  • Final Fantasy XV is traaaaash. Literally the only good thing i have to say about that game is i only felt indifferent towards it in the first 2 hours or so. Final Fantasy XIII for all it's flaws never reaches this level of indifference and actually get's slowly better and better as time goes on.

  • Final fantasy Xv: One of the greats! Probably... I don't know, didn't play it. But the soundtrack IS amazing. Congrats for finishing on the podium.

  • Looking back I regret putting Final Fantasy XV at number 1. The game just didn't stay with me as long as I thought it would, maybe when all the dlc arrives it will feel more complete.

  • @Inustar I believe I was Bastion and you were Mei.. but it was mystery heroes so I didn't have a choice. Don't hate on the bird loving turret!

  • @SabotageTheTruth OR I'll just use this as an excuse for me losing.

    As for Final Fantasy, it was a fun game while I was playing it, but now? Well it would be lower, but I didn't play a ton of the games last year. Now I'm playing Trails of Cold Steel, that would have ranked higher than it.

  • @FF7Cloud It could have/should have been up there with some of the greats, just needed some more polish in the story department and pacing

  • @ACardAttack i know thats the most disappointing thing about it. they had the plot, they had the villain, they had the world

  • Dark Souls III

    EZA Review

  • lol I have literally played 3 games on this list, and my favorite one was the lowest ranked. :)

  • Shucky darn none of my games showed up on the list.

    Maybe I should have realized that was the case when I got an email back that said "what are those games, I can't find anything about them on Google".

  • @TokyoSlim 2 for me but they were both in the top 10, so that is some consolation.

  • Oh nice, 13 top spots for Uncharted! That's pretty clear then. Such a great ending for the series, I love it.

  • Dark Souls III is a great game all around, and deserves the 2# spot easily. As for Uncharted, I was never into the combat in the series, but the story was phenomenal, and as far as I know, 4 caps it off nearly perfectly, so I can see why people here love it so.

    Anyhow, thanks to everyone, especially those who took part in making this, and special shoutout to @Axel for making this.
    Love & Respect.

  • A very deserving top spot for Uncharted 4 I had a blast playing it and I've gone back to it and its multiplayer many times since release.

    This makes me very happy. And while I was never Playstation gamer, I respect the fact that Uncharted 4 is probably the best game of 2016. Great job allies! This is one hell of a list. Thumbs up.

  • Dark Souls 3 is a superb game....

    Never understood the appeal of the Uncharted games, but hey, what can you do. People like what they like. The things that engage me personally are challenge, interaction and exploration in video games. Uncharted avoids those and does something else. Can't fault the level of detail and work Naughty Dog puts into their titles though. They care very much about what they put out there.

  • For Dark Souls: I've never played any of the Souls series, so I can not comment on it beyond I know how much that franchise is beloved (Anyone wanna take bets on Nioh placing in the top 5 or 10 this time next year?).

    For Uncharted: I have said so much about my adoration for this game, especially in Community Comments, so I'll refrain from clogging up the thread further beyond my customary thanks and shoutouts. Before I do, I just want to say that being one of 13 people to believe the game is GOTY is an awesome feeling.

    Anywho, my thanks to @Faaip, @Farsendor, @tokeeffe9, @ffff0, @Sentinel-Beach, @DMCMaster, @GoTaco, @Mango, @Jak, @Tearju-Engi, @ObbyDent, @Ruaidhri18, @thenerdtheword, @Inustar, @Axel, @DisturbedSwan, @Fridge-man, @DeweyDecibel, @FF7Cloud, and @Excalibruh for also sharing in enthusiasm for such a great game!!

    Also, @Axel, Thanks for undertaking the effort to put this together. Like the Top 100 games and Top 50 Characters, this was so much fun to see, read, and talk about. Excellent job!

    Finally to every Ally that contributed, thanks for doing so! I was able to read a diverse amount of thoughts and views on a lot great games! Your passion and fandom is what makes these kinds of lists so cool!

  • I had a tough time deciding between Dark Souls and Uncharted for number 1.. but in the end it had to go to Uncharted.

    I don't know what more I can say about it. It improved on everything the series had sone so far, wrapped up the story perfectly, incredibly complete and detailed game, and surprisingly great multiplayer.

    Thanks for putting together this list @Axel! This makes a good list of games that I need to play

    Also, the one game from my list that didn't make the cut:

    My #5 pick Battlefield 1 - While the single player campaign was improved, it still wasn't that great. The multiplayer is still fantastic and addicting and I'm still picking it up to play here and there. While its not the WW1 game I wanted, its still really enjoyable. Though I will say that the Season Pass bullshit should have kept it from my list all together. Hiding France behind a paywall is stupid and charging $50 for a few multiplayer maps is absurd. They could have at least added another chapter or two to the single player campaign for the price.

  • Since only my top 2 games made into the list, a quick shout-out for other three:

    1. Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma
    2. Watch Dogs 2
    3. Oxenfree
