E3 2017: Bethesda Predictions
Each year our editors sit down and make wild and crazy predictions about what we expect to at all of the press conferences at E3 2017. Although most of our predictions are just flat out wrong, every once in a while we nail them. So sit back, enjoy a nice libation, and join our editors as we discuss our predictions for each of the big conferences this year. Today we're on our third entry into the feature with Bethesda, who's conference is up second on Sunday, June 11th.

Each year the Darkstation staff gather around our virtual conference room table and deliberate the best games of the year. 2016 has been one of the more challenging years with one of the most diverse lineup of games to choose from.

Jon's Top 5 Games of 2016
2016, what a year for videogames. As time for gaming seems to shrink for me, perfectly-timed games are a rare luxury that standout among droves of games trying to pack their worlds with endless quests and side missions. In 2015 I was overwhelmed with open worlds, side quests, and 50+ hour games. In 2016, I found quite a few games that satisfied me across the board and didn’t need three days worth of game time to do it.
Allen's Top 5 Games of 2016
If there was ever a year to use video games as a means of escapism, it was 2016. I don't have to go into detail into what fury the year has wrought, so I'll spend the rest of this paragraph talking about some legitimately surprising games to come out. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the range of titles that were released, surprises (and disappointments) among them. So as 2016 prepares to belch out its last breath of air, let's take some time to reflect on the games that kept me afloat during this wild ride.
Mike T's Top 5 Games of 2016
2016 saw the release of a number of prominent titles from a variety of genres. Perhaps most surprisingly, first-person shooters have begun breaking out of their previously-established mold. Battlefield 1 sought out World War I as a setting in contrast to the increasingly futuristic settings of shooters. Titanfall 2 built on a strong foundation and stayed committed to its focus on mechs, despite being such a rare sight in western titles. Even Blizzard took a risk with Overwatch, a MOBA-style first-person shooter. Finally, DOOM stood out as a brilliantly-crafted blend of the new and old, to the surprise of many.
