Jonathan M's Top 5 Games of 2016

I sadly didn't play nearly as many new games in 2016 as I wanted but it's been an incredibly fun year watch. From the launch of the Sony's PS4 Pro, the announcements of Microsoft's Project Scorpio and Nintendo's Switch, to the rise of VR, 2016 has been an awesome year (video game-wise). But I think the best part is how it has set the stage for 2017, which could be the best year in gaming since 2007.

Unfortunately, I barely got to play any new games this year.  Why, you ask?  Because almost every game that I did play was a huge time sink, so I missed out on the overwhelming majority of the year’s new releases.  Between that and a two-month long addiction to Don't Starve Together, I spent a ton of time on less than two dozen games.  Next year's "Favorite Game Released Before 2017, Played in 2017" category is going to have a bunch of candidates.  Nevertheless, there were a few highlights in the year.

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.
