Donald Strohman’s Top 10 Games of 2016
- Walking Dead: Michonne
While far from Telltale’s best outing, Walking Dead: Michonne still offers a frightfully fun romp through a world of dangerous zombies and even more dangerous people.
- Battlefield 1
A breath of fresh air in a world dominated by futuristic shooters, Battlefield 1 easily beats out Activision’s Infinite Warfare for must play major FPS.
- Layers of Fear
Like a romp through a nightmare, Layers of Fear is one of the scariest games of 2016, and is further boosted but it’s intriguing mythos and tense atmosphere.
- Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
It’s short and simple, but Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is definitely the best example of what VR games are capable of, and easily the most fun of all the ones out there.
- Pokemon Go
This game may have crawled back under the rock from which it came, but the impact Pokemon Go left on the world is hard to ignore. I spent countless hours looking for Pokemon, if only the developers had found a way to keep so many players invested for the long run.
The best kind of walk through the woods, Firewatch is one of the biggest out of nowhere surprises that rocked the 2016 world of gaming.
Bloody, gory, and completely intense from start to finish, Doom knows exactly what it needs to be in a market dominated by shooters, over the top, dumb fun.
- That Dragon, Cancer
So heartbreaking that it may never leave your memory, That Dragon, Cancer isn’t just a game, it’s an experience.
This game could have been number one if it weren’t for the lack of a proper narrative inside the game itself. However, even if the game’s story is plastered only over the internet, the assortment of distinct characters and addictive multiplayer easily makes Overwatch the multiplayer game of the year.
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
A masterful farewell for treasure hunting badass Nathan Drake, Naughty Dog once agains proves themselves to be the top dog in gaming, thanks to the excellent production values, fun humor, and memorable cast of characters.
