Hiram's Top 5 Games of 2016
2016 may go down in history as just a photo of a piece of poop, but it's at least a pile of poop on top of a giant pile of super awesome games. It's just one of those years where every time you look around, there's something new and cool and interesting to play. Even little-loved systems like the Vita and WiiU had two or three things come out that were worth a look at. Everything is exciting! Video games are fun! Don't look outside oh god it's terrible out there save yourself!!! Video gamesssssssssssss!!!!!!
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.
