Most Anticipated Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Oh yes, I want this game so bad. It's looks great, I want to see the story trailer.

Best game made this year by a long shot. - Therandom

2 Doom

This game was stuck in development for years... look what we got! Pure awesomeness

Excluding uncharted, this is the best video games will have to offer this year, and this'll probably be the best first person shooter made for a long time. - Therandom

3 Dark Souls III

I have to say, it succeeds on its promise, even if the frame rate and matchmaking is a little broken. Dangerous enemies with borderline human AI, beautiful graphics, epic bosses that change strategy over time, weapon arts, huge variety in its weapons, fair PvP (most of the time; expect some gankers), I could keep going, but I think we know where this is going. - MKBeast

4 No Man's Sky

Terrible game, when I first saw it I thought it would've been one of the most best and anticipated games in 2016, it was really anticipating but the game itself when it was released turned out be extremely terrible, most of the ideas and concept that was shown in the trailer turned out to be not in the release of the game... disappointing. - Wayne188

Can't wait for this.

I cri every tim

Between this game and Federation offense, but calling this game merely the good one of the two would honestly be a bit of a disservice to it. See for yourself - xandermartin98
