If there’s one thing 2016 has been great for, it’s for games. Be it on Android, video games, Playstations or PC; some great and awesome games have been launched this year. And some of the bests among those have struck the PC gaming industry.
Today, I am going to list of some of the best games launched this year. This list consists of games from various genres and includes all big and small games that have made an impact this year. Let’s start the game then –
One of the biggest gaming blockbusters this year has been Overwatch. It has become the biggest online multiplayer shooter games around with its mix of colorful characters and feverish gameplay. It has become popular with both casual players and pros alike.
- Battlefield 1
The fifteenth installment in the Battlefield series is based at the time of WW1. The campaign comprises of six different “war stories” each with different characters. This game is sure to take you to the historic war period and give you an exhilarating experience.
The biggest surprise hit amongst the games of the year. Firewatch delivers a tight and captivating chronicle and one of the most beautiful virtual worlds ever built. The relationship between the lead characters is the place the games’ writing really shines. It’s pleasing and authentic and makes you to care about them at the end of the game.
The cutest sim game ever built in my views, Anarcute is about a group of rioters who are creating havoc in the cities around the world. This game is unbelievably sweet, fun and compelling. The controls are simple and the story has a good depth.
- Watch Dogs 2
WD2 is the sequel to the popular 2014 game Watch Dogs. WD2 is set in a fictionalized San Francisco Bay Area. It is played from a third-person perception and you can navigate its world on-foot or by vehicle. In this game, you control Marcus Holloway, a hacker working for the hacking group DedSec to cripple the city’s advanced surveillance system.
- Forza Horizon 3
The best racing game award of the year for me goes to Forza Horizon 3. Set in the entire Australia, this is an open world racing game. Forza Horizon 3 has stunning graphics and huge customization settings which makes it a clear winner for 2016.
The reboot to the 1993 cult and iconic game, DOOM succeeds to repeat the wonder and excitement of the original game. DOOM’s gameplay is still simple and basic; point and shoot. But, the graphics, story, nostalgia and setting makes it a must play game of the year.
- Rocket League
Many people love cars, many love footballs. And most of them like both. So, what about a game which combines these two into one? And combine it with stunning graphics, dynamic gameplay and exhilarating setting, you get Rocket League. Go play and find more this game yourself!
- Dark Souls 3
The third installment in the Dark Souls franchise does not disappoint on its expectations. Notorious and difficult just like its predecessors, it is the darkest game I have played this year. Filled with an array of foes and monsters, DK3 challenges your mental competence and confidence level with its mind blowing gameplay. Beware though!! This game is not for weak hearts!!
