My Top 10 Games of 2016
I didn't get to everything I wanted to get to this year (*Cough* Forza Horizon 3
*Cough*), but I did play more xbox than any other year since I started back in 2002. Here is my top 10 list, and all but one actually came out in 2016:
Honorable mentions: Quantum Break
, Dead Rising 4
(glitched achievements were demoralizing…), OxenFree
, and Pokemon Go
10: Gears of War 4
. I enjoyed the campaign a lot more than my coop partner, but Horde mode is a blast. I just wish a 50 wave run didn’t take 2-3 hours!! This is also my first multiplayer experience using my PC and play anywhere. Overall this system is working great.
. The multiplayer sucked, but the campaign was perfectly paced, with a ton of nostalgic nods.
. I finished it in only 4 hours, but no game had me thinking more about afterwards it than “Inside”. What an ending! Truly a work of art.
7: Titanfall 2
. Amazing single player campaign! For some reason multiplayer didn’t grab me, which is weird since my 2000 GS for the first titanfall is probably my proudest Gamerscore accomplishment. This game was also a victim of too many games, not enough time…
6: Battlefield 1
. This game is a perfect fit for me… it would have been higher on my list if it didn’t get buried under a lot of other content competing for my screen time (XCOM, Titanfall 2, Destiny Expansion).
5: The Witcher 3 – Expansions
. The original game is probably the best game I have played on this gen. The expansions were amazing as well.
. I played this couch coop with my wife. We don’t play a lot of games together, but we both had a great time with this one.
3: Xbox fitness
. I lost about 20lbs using this game, and have learned how to keep it off. I am really disappointed that it is going to be shut down in 2017…
2: XCOM 2
. I absolutely love these games. Unapologetically HARD, I am quite proud of some of the rarer achievements I got from this game.
1: Metal Gear Solid V
. I got to this one late, but the game is a masterpiece… as long as you don’t include the weird story. TA says I played it for 176 hours…. Seems about right!
