The 10 Best (and 2 Most Disappointing) Video Games of 2016

Leave a comment

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.

But let’s save that for later. For now, let’s talk about my top 10 games of the year. (You can find my full ranking here.) More
