Best Video Games of 2016

I KNOW 2015 IS NOT OVER YET,
But let's be real for a second, if I would'nt make this list someone else would make it before 2016!
So quit whining and come back December 2016 so that you can vote for the games that rocked the hardest this year!

The Top Ten

1 Overwatch Overwatch Product Image

As a HUGE Blizzard fan I played almost all of their games (Didn't play Diablo I and Warcraft I-III) And I will buy this game for sure It's golden just like all Blizzard games. And Overwatch KILLED Team Fortress 2 A game that's made by valve and it got Crushed by Blizzard.

This game is the greatest. The heroes have several awesome abilities to use and are all super fun. Multiplayer in this game is crazy fun and addicting. The only downside is that it is pretty much only online.

I love this game, pretty much everything about the core game is wonderful. Ranked mode sucks though and the progression system is also trash but they don't really bother me much. I still enjoyed doom more but this is a close second place for me.

Blizzard is just an amazing company. They do everything and work 24/7 to make the community happy. They aren't money pigs either like many other companies. It's sad how the Blizzard community is also kinda toxic. Ok, now more about the game. It has an amazing concept with balanced heroes and abilities. The possibilities in this game are endless. This game is different than the typical Call Of Duty. It doesn't get boring. Blizzard nailed it and although Uncharted 4 is a great game, I think Overwatch deserves #1

2 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Product Image

Definitely one of the best games of the year. I just loved the single player campaign, despite the first few chapters being boring. My only gripe is with the lack of modes in multiplayer.

Beautiful graphics, developed, likeable, relatable, unique characters, funny one liners, intense moments and fantastically executed stealth add up to the best game I've played all decade. And that's just the campaign. Then there's the creative and addictive multiplayer. Uncharted 4:A Thief's End is a creative, wonder filled bedazzlement that I am ecstatic to see at#1

This was a pretty weak year for games, a lot of disappointments, so it's easy to see why Uncharted 4 comes out on top. It's honestly the only game that stood out this year and also happens to be one of the best video games ever made, there is just no competing with that.

I could have picked any of these other games for the year's best: Overwatch is more addicting, Battlefield is more a better constraint when it comes to tone, DOOM is more entertaining to play, and Dark Souls is more difficult. But guess what? Uncharted is the only game to nail all of these at once. 97/10

3 Battlefield 1 Battlefield 1 Product Image

This game is so awesome! I don't even have it but the gameplay is so badass I pissed myself! The different guns and classes make the game so diverse and unique compared to other games cough cough infinite warfare. The maps are almost real it seams I'm at the battle myself. This game deserves to be on the top three and all of you know it. I'm SO HYPED FOR IT!

The game isn't even out already and it's already high on this list. From the trailer the game looks far more promising than infinite warfare. Just don't over hype the game.

Honestly, the campaign was a major disappointment in terms of story, but the game play, authenticity, originality and the portrayal of World War I was absolutely spectacular, and all this was executed with stunning visuals. Loved the multiplayer!

Stop voting for a game that is not out yet it could be terrible for all you know

4 Doom Doom Product Image

This is a mostly old school shooter in 2016 and is so good. This is just pure intense violence and joy. This is almost as good as the original (one of the best games ever) as much as I love overwatch I just appreciate doom more and the fact that a game like this was made in 2016 and became a success. The game also does a very good job with characterization of the simple protagonist and I love how the protagonists emotions are delivered though no word and though action and the felling of doomguy perfectly matches the players emotion. Multiplayer and snap map suck but the single player is just so good.

Please kill this game. It was amazing in the 90's when you first played it on a 486. When games didn't need a story line, or barely had one. They just needed to be fun as hell and shock your friends with the amount of gratuitous violence. Now it's just needless rehashing with every new post-Carmack incarnation of id trying to stay relevant and releasing a new Doom. The only Doom that I would ever bother to play would be filled with endless incoherent mazes, crazy monsters, and loads of them popping out everywhere. How the mighty have fallen. Their peak was the benchmark standard twitch shooter, Quake 3. After that it was all downhill. Unreal ate their lunch.

Great graphics, even better gameplay, along with loads of powerful weapons to blow demons apart with. What more could you want? This is the reboot that the original deserved

This is a perfect example of homage to a great series. It's everything you want from a DOOM game.

5 Pokémon Sun Pokémon Sun Product Image

The game is good. But the starting point is WAY to long. Its like nintendo needs to teach you every little detail that most of us already know! Just make a option to go through the tutorial for gods sake. So if you don't want to you don't have to! The game is a great one though.

You figure that we'd know it by now since they repeated the same formula 7 times - marmalade_skies

It is pretty good. My friend was able to finish the ENTIRE game in about 40 hours (he plays at night until 6 AM in the morning, just plain sad)! All he had to do was capture the Ultra Beasts, and that was just it. He also said it had a pretty sad story, which was better than Minecraft: Story Mode.

Anything's better than story mode; you have no impact on the story. Any choice you make will not affect the outcome WHATSOEVER. - mattstat716

I finally completed the main game, and in my conclusive opinion, Pokemon Sun and Moon have the best to offer in the series yet. Much better than Pokemon X and Y, and that's saying something. Happy 20th anniversary to Nintendo's 2nd best-selling video game franchise.

I got the game the day it came out and I fell madly in love with it. It's by far my favorite game in the entire series! I love this game because:

1.The New Pokemon are actually awesome!

2.The graphics are astounding for the 3DS. Some of the best I've seen on the console

3.The Story is actually very interesting

4.Its actually pretty challenging! Not super hard but it super easy either.

5.Z-Moves are really cool and do not always guarantee a One-Hit KO which is something I'm glad about.

6.The game has a lot of very interesting characters! My favorite in the whole series! (Lellie is my personal favorite)

7.At first I thought Team Skull was stupid, but when I read their dialogue, they became my all time favorite bad guy team in Pokemon! They are so hilarious and their animation is easily the funniest animation you can find in the game.

8. I actually felt a huge bond with my team. The fact that friendship actually contributes to the ...more

6 Dark Souls III Dark Souls III Product Image

Dark Souls 3 is the legacy of the souls' series. Epic boss battles, Great music and it also fixed Dark Souls 2's problems like bad level design and difficulty

Full orchestra music, epic boss battles, large variety of enemies, several types of weapons, and extremely fun exploration in a unique map design.

This is the perfect swansong for Dark Souls. Its difficulty is back, its combat is a lot more fluid and fast paced, AI is very smart, graphics are stunning, weapon arts change up tactics, and more. This deserves game of the year, hands down.

Dark souls 3 was the best experience of my life, I cried and cried and cried during the whole game, it was hell for me but it was also beautiful!

7 Watch Dogs 2 Watch Dogs 2 Product Image

Best game ever, amazing graphics, and hack everything!

Fun as hell, way better than number 1. Positive ratings everywhere you look, and packed with side missions. Totally worth it.

It's a great game that Ubisoft made with amazing storyline and character! The graphics are awesome and how Ubisoft created Watch Dogs 2 in general is wonderful.

This looks fun

8 Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Product Image

Maybe the best fighting game of 2016

Get this to the top 10, be intelligent people!

I'd say this is the best game of 2016. So much charm, so much polish, it's so much better than over watch. I hate Team based first person shooters, people don't know how to work as a team so that fact alone ruins the same. In this game, you fight alone or against a single person. So, you don't have to deal with the incompetence of others. I love that you can finally select an actual stage to fight on instead of just the world martial arts tournament. Finally, they added cooler. They have a full roster of 68 characters

Vote for this! It's going to be one of the best games of 2016, maybe better than Nsuns4

9 Fire Emblem: Fates Fire Emblem: Fates Product Image

WHOA Surprised to see this game on here, I love it

This game gets way too much hate. Not only is it super enjoyable, it also got me into Fire Emblem as a whole.

They are fun games but I liked Conquest more than Birthright.

Fire emblem is my favourite game series ever

10 Pokemon Moon Pokemon Moon Product Image

It's something fresh for the Pokemon series, and I love it. Every new generation of Pokemon is reminiscent of the days when video games weren't dominated by generic shooters and adult content. Pokemon has remained popular despite how everyone's "growing up." Nintendo, thank you for daring to be different and being the better choice for people who prefer family-friendly gaming.

I haven't finished this game since I got it for Christmas and forgot about it for a few, but so far, it's really good. I'm up to the very beginning of Island #3 out of 4. I'm glad that Game Freak decided to give the game major changes.

My favorite Pokemon game so far. Amazing plot and characters. The "evil" team, Team Skull, is more amusing than anything, and there are many ships that I love.

It may not be out, but it's Pokemon! They've never failed the main series games.

The Contenders

11 Tom Clancy's The Division Tom Clancy's The Division Product Image

It's march, so I'm voting for something that has actually released lol

Great video game... awesome fun with aspects of third person shooter and rpg

The updates ruined it for me. Fun while it lasted though!

I liked this game. The gameplay was fun.

12 Forza Horizon 3 Forza Horizon 3 Product Image

For anybody who missed the time when FH3 was at its peak and was still being updated... you really missed out.

Why is forza horizon 3 here it should be at number one this had the best graphics, the best gameplay, the best car selection, best customisation, best open world, lived up way past its potential and supplies hours of fun for the whole family

There's not much to say other than it's a Forza Horizon game - so pretty much perfect right? Incredibly fun if you're the right person, and that's why I think it's so low on the list. Unless you're into cars and customisation, you probably won't care for it

Best graphics. Great gameplay. Countless hours of fun.

13 Titanfall 2 Titanfall 2 Product Image

This game is so much better than the first with a surprisingly good campaign and awesome multiplayer. It's just a shame that is was released in between boyfriend and Call of Duty.

The movement mechanics are on point and it takes genuine skill to run through the maps and getting kills with weapons so varying in skill and stuff like bullet speed the way this game is insane

I can't believe this is so low on the list! Pretty great story, exhilarating gameplay and all around a wonderful game!

This game is amazing! One of the most overlooked games of 2016 which is truly does not deserve.

14 Batman: The Telltale Series Batman: The Telltale Series Product Image

I got this game for Christmas and its amazing

Can't go wrong with Batman.

Love Batman and TellTale games, wish they did A New Frontier on PS3!

It's Batsy...What can possibly happen other than epicness...

15 Street Fighter V Street Fighter V Product Image

This shouldn't be here this game was incomplete at launch bad servers and no arcade mode

I feel so sorry for those who went through this shallow cash in.

Street Fighter has been my game since way back in 2010 when I played the arcade version since then you could not beat me if I chose ryu or akuma

Should be updated now, and the graphics are really cool

16 Pokemon Go

Horrible, annoying overrated game.

It's not in the pokemon series lol. However it remains the prime example of a good phone game.

Just wish the server issues could be fixed sooner

A lot have dead bodies have been discovered in the playing of this game. People playing this have solved a lot of reported missing cases.

17 Pokken Tournament Pokken Tournament Product Image

Why am I on this website? Is there any point in life?

PETA's gonna be mad at this...

Go pokEmon

Pretty epic.

18 Far Cry Primal Far Cry Primal Product Image

This game will kick ass when it releases!

I've played it before but I think ARK survival evolved is better it has WAY more content and taming

I don't have the game but I've seen the trailer and its awesome

Not what I wanted or expected, overrated but pretty good

19 NBA 2K17 NBA 2K17 Product Image

NBA 2k is an annual must for all sports enthusiasts, with stunning graphics and visuals, plus the game physics are improving year by year.

Huge basketball fan so personally I think it should and is the best game

This is probably the first non-shooter, non-violent, non-pokemon game out there. I can't stand any of those, so this is my favorite.

So weird, though, it takes a day, a whole day, to install on xbox one and other console stuff!

20 WWE 2K17 WWE 2K17 Product Image

I only buy these games so I can go on a gauntlet of beating everyone with my created character "Satan" Then I snap the disk.

Pre ordered it can't wait for goldberg

The game sucks so many glitches this should be one of the worst games of 2016 and is definitely the worst wrestling game of all time except backstage assault.

It should be number 1

21 Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Product Image

A great conclusion to an awesome gaming franchise!

This games are better than the anime and manga

Never heard of it but myself being a Naruto fan I'm no interested

Kinda good, but the plot sucks

22 Gears of War 4 Gears of War 4 Product Image

Amazing game. Great graphics, plotlines, story, characters, foreshadows and the weapons.
What makes this game so satisfying? A chainsaw in a gun!

23 Final Fantasy XV Final Fantasy XV Product Image

Although It didn't deliver a strong story telling as we would expect however, game delivered an amazing world design, great soundtrack even thought it can get lazy sometimes by being repetitive in some locations, surpassingly deep combat mechanics and really dynamic so, in the end I wasn't disappointed after all

How is this so low on the list? This game was a blast. The characters are so much fun, the animation (as always) is beautifully rendered, and despite the somewhat loose storyline, it still delivered a great experience.

This might be the most flawed game of 2016 along with The Last Guardian, however the reason why it's still considered as a great game is that it's filled with surprises and the charm of the main characters.

My cousin loves this game seriously he won't stop playing it
