Top Ten Unexpectedly Good Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Watch Dogs 2

You can take your bandwagon opinions about watch dogs 1 up yours because watch dogs 1 wasn't that bad had a lot of fun with friends on there.

Always remain best for me forever due to its graphics and missions - Centinel

I have to admit this is a very good game. Kinda copying Grand Theft Auto but a very good game.

The missions and graphics were the best. This is also way better than Grand Theft Auto 5. - theinudemon

V 4 Comments
2 Hitman

The concept was bad but it did it quite decent and the game overall is very underappreciated. - DapperPickle

3 Titanfall 2

First one was terrible, this one is great - Ale9991

Nobody expectedly this to be great, but it got really close. - DapperPickle

This was the biggest shocker

4 Ratchet & Clank

This reboot was good, the movie was crap. - DapperPickle

5 Pokemon Sun and Moon
6 Inside

I'm pretty sure a lot of people expected this game to be good. - MKBeast

7 XCOM 2
8 Doom

This was surprisingly phonoemenal as re boots almost never work. - DapperPickle

9 Overwatch
10 The Last Guardian

Shadow was such a good game and we thought the company couldn't pull another great game off.So TLG finally came out and as I thought some people were worried that it would be a Duke Nukem Forever. - DapperPickle

The Contenders

11 Shadow Warrior 2
12 Batman: The Telltale Series

I have never played this

13 Battleborn
14 Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

While It Isn't Perfect, It's Still Pretty Underrated - VideoGamefan5

This must be up there with Watch Dogs 2. The story was actually creative, the presentation is half-unique for the 3DS and the gameplay feels like a 2D Sonic platform. - The Ultimate Daredevil

15 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

I didn't think I'd like this at all, but it suprised me. Better than ghosts, AW, and Black Ops 3. - Therandom

16 Paper Mario: Color Splash

I thought it'd be the new sticker star, but I gave it a try. And oh my gosh, Nintendo is back at it once again! Take away just about everything bad about sticker star out, and add in some memorable bosses, awesome levels, cool music, and gosh darn good humor!

17 Sims 4

I love this game it's so fun

18 Gal*Gun: Double Peace
19 Star Fox Zero

Enjoyed this game and thought was very good. Does not deserve the backlash it gets. I also hope Star Fox comes to the Switch in the future.

21 Sister Location
22 Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
23 WWE 2K17
24 NBA 2K17
