Original Post -

 

Let's have an unofficial poll and discussion of our favourite games of this year.

 

Only pick your top 5 favourite games in the poll. And obviously this isn't a comprehensive list. So, please write down your missing favourite game in a post and I'll include it in the tally.

 

Let's wrap this up by the end of the year and I'll update this post on 1st Jan, 2017 with the Top 10 Games of the Year 2016 according to the votes.

I'm surprised that you have made quite a good poll. Just missing DOOM. lGqZ60B.gif

 

My top 5 excluding SKYRIM Special edition:

  1. Overwatch
  2. XCOM 2
  3. Battlefield 1
  4. Dark Souls 3
  5. FIFA 17

Would also add the following to the poll:

  • Planet Coaster
  • FIFA 17
  • Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
  • Shadow Warrior 2
  • Stardew Valley
  • World of Warcraft: Legion
  • Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

 

I'm yet to finish Dishonored 2. It'll most likely end up in top 5. FBrUOtG.gif

I am gonna go with Hitman. With Xcom 2 a close second.

 

Thing is, I expected Xcom 2 to be great and it was. I didnt expect Hitman to be as good as it turned out to be. Absolution was absolutely dog sh*t. And for the developers to turn around from the worst Hitman game and end up making the best Hitman game is just mind boggling.

Why no Division?

 

Metacritic is low but I really like Division.

 

 

 

My favourite games are -

 

Hitman

Titanfall 2

DOOM

Gears of War 4

Division

 

Best year for Shooters. Almost all shooter games were good :D

 

 

Honorable mentions

 

Dark Souls 3

 

Inside

 

Uncharted 4

 

Ratchet and clank

 

Farcry Primal

Hmm Titanfall 2 is also really good

 

After playing Doom it felt like this is the best single player FPS campaign we've had in ages and nothing can beat it this year, especially not the generic futuristic shooters like Titanfall 2 and COD:IW.

 

But Titanfall 2 is my pick over Doom. Doom has a more cohesive throughline in the campaign and is much more meaty than Titanfall 2.

But maaan, the movement and FEEL of controlling the pilot in Titanfall 2 is unmatchable in any FPS game I've ever played. The effortless way in which the character controls beats even Mirror's Edge in FPS parkour. Granted, the moveset isn't as versatile as ME but the feel and rhythm and speed is way more intoxicating and thrilling. I have played through the campaign thrice and I'm itching to get back to it on the hardest difficulty now.

However good it is, DOOM still wins because no one expected it to be this good. After so many years of delays and whatnot, they still managed to nail it in every aspect.

 

The music, the art direction, gunplay, action, visuals, well optimised, you name it. Belongs to the hall of fame category of shooters.

 

 

 

Titanfall 2 is very good too, but eh, futuristic shooter ain't everyone's cup. The move set was always the highlight of the game though.

 

Battlefield 1 is excellent as well. Both SP and MP are very well done.

Same can be said for Hitman.. Just like DOOM deserves Shooter over TF2, Hitman also deserves GOTY in action category or any category award over Dishonored coz no one expected Hitman to be this good, especially after Absolution...

 

First Dishonored was great, so we knew Dishonored 2 will rock just like first game.. but no one, i mean no one expected Hitman to be this good.
