2016 was a great year for gaming. With so many cool new advancements in technology coming into the market like Play Station VR which for me was my personal highlight of 2016.
I have decided to compile a list of the top 5 games of 2016 that really blow away the gaming industry and the games that took home prestigious accolades at various gaming expos across a variety of countries throughout the year.
In at number 5 is the very impressive debut from the genius that is Campo Santo.
4. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Number 4 see’s a welcomed return for the fourth and final time to the Uncharted universe where protagonist Nathan Drake and his brother Sam embark on their most dangerous mission yet. This game is graphically stunning, the mechanics are a class above its predecessor with a welcomed AI overhaul. This game is truly a masterclass in third person shooters.
3. Dishonored 2
Dishonored 2 is probably one of the most surprising inclusions for many in this list as it does have its flaws (don’t we all?). But building upon solid foundations of the previous title and mastering the storyline for the sequel, proves clinical. A great decision to bring back old characters that made the first game such a brilliant experience also buffs up this game in the charts.
Relive your childhood with this amazing remake of an old classic. This game takes everything about what made the first game such an amazing FPS experience and enhances it for next gen consoles. Blood and gore have never looked so gorry-us in full HD, remastered and beautiful. This is for every classic Doom fan out there. The multiplayer experience is also a solid addition to a game already packed full of intriguing moments. Also, keep your eye out for the classic Doom easter egg level hidden in one of the levels – you won’t regret it.
1. Titanfall 2
Coming straight off the back of the success of the first game comes Titanfall 2. This time it packs quite the meaty single-player campaign, which the first game lacked and quite frankly missed. Not to be left out is, of course, the famous multiplayer of non-stop metal-bashing action that made it so popular previously. This game well and truly deserves to be number 1 and should hold its place on your shelf.
