In 2016, it felt like my gaming diet returned to normal. Last year, I played smaller titles and indie games almost exclusively. This year, I got back into big-budget gaming, and I think I found a nearly-optimal balance between indie games and AAA behemoths. I enjoyed almost every game I played this year, and there wasn’t a single one I hated. For that reason, I’m not covering the worst titles of the year (Pony Island and That Dragon, Cancer, if you care, but I wouldn’t consider either to be a bad game). Instead, I’ll be talking about the most disappointing games: the ones with the biggest gap in quality between what could have been and what was.
