Top Ten Unexpectedly Good Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Watch Dogs 2

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

The first Watcn Dogs was a bad game but the sequel surprised us as it may have a few flaws but it is probably the funniest game of the year. - DapperPickle

This is supremly good. Better than the first, I can agree with that despite the less interesting ending, yeah it is still good - PrinceOfFire

2 Titanfall 2

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

First one was terrible, this one is great - Ale9991

This was the biggest shocker

3 Hitman

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

4 Ratchet & Clank

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

5 Pokemon Sun and Moon
6 Doom

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

7 Inside

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

8 Overwatch
9 XCOM 2
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 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

14 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

15 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!

16 Battleborn
17 Sims 4

I love this game it's so fun

18 Fire Emblem Fates
19 Sister Location
20 Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
BAdd New Item
