Best Video Games of 2016

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This will be amazing! I can't wait to play as a Lego Kylo Ren! - awesomesauce20345

My friend ce mted

GOTY confirmed :b

22 Far Cry Primal

This game will kick ass when it releases!

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

I've played it before but I think ARK survival evolved is better it has WAY more content and taming - Katekat123

23 XCOM 2

It's the only one that's actually out for crying it loud.

My friends all died

This is just the best Sci-Fi game of the year 2016!

I did sooo much "save scumming".. - VelocyFaptor

24 Titanfall 2

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.

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.

This game is so underrated. The campaign is genius, gameplay is smooth, plus free DLC. The game is just amazing. Should be at least number 5.

25 Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
26 Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
27 Another Metroid 2 Remake

One of the worst games of the Metroid series turned into quite possibly the best. If you're feeling salty about the way Nintendo's been treating the Metroid series lately...

well, knowing that this game got taken down isn't exactly going to change that, but trust me; the experience you will have with this game is just absolutely incredible. You won't regret it - xandermartin98

28 Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS

Still like it but it's a less powerful version of the orginal wii u version - gamerappa

I agree with the person below!

29 Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

It's so fun playing in the backyard and playing online! Really fun to play turf takeover and mixed mode!

Better than overarching in my opinion

30 Stardew Valley

This game is basically Harvest Moon but with more cool stuff added. I recommend it. - WarioMan

This was the best game I have played in a long time should at least be in the top ten

It's not surprising this indie hit is well... an indie hit! It's so good! :3 - TrisTris

31 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition

Skyrim came out much before this but the special addition really is a new game.

I played many games since I was a child, but this one was the best game ever

I'm surprised this isn't marked higher.

Skyrim is bigger than you!

32 Sid Meier's Civilization VI

I love civilization

Raindrop Droptop beating my meat on my laptop

33 Valkyria: Azure Revolution
34 Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

A great conclusion to an awesome gaming franchise! - DenBoro

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 - Ale9991

35 Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

An excellent Video game with the most engaging BAttle System alongside Bowser's Inside Story! HOWEVER, there is a little bit too much padding and filler which kind of just slows the whole entire Video Game Down. HOWEVER, I will still highly recommend this Video Game to all of you! I highly recommend it! Despite all of the padding and filler that it has and/or possesses, it is a very great Video game with Very Great Characters and Very great Gameplay and music. the music is awesome, especially the final boss battle theme in my opinioN! They're aren't really any new characters I n here, but the ones who are already hear are all portrayed so darn well. - HeavyDonkeyKong

HeavyDonkeyKong, could you please tell me what battle system is/means/is genuinely observed? At the same time as I, Kieran Stark (aka the Ultimate Daredevil) am confused about what a video game's battle system is, I am getting the point. I sorta like this game, even though it is the weakest of all the Mario & Luigi RPGs (unlike Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story's predecessors, which are heavily underrated because of their sharp retro presentations! Yeah, I still said it! ) and Paper Mario: Sticker Star is the only Mario RPG that is (much) worse than Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam even though it is not as unplayable as Hydilide. Classic Nintendo > Modern Nintendo (and it's because of FAR more reasons than just Princess Peach getting kidnapped to make the Mario franchise at least a bit more anti-feminist).

I really don't think you should make a list about games you likely haven't played fully yet, but since I can tell that Paper Jam will most likely obliterate every other Mario and Luigi game so far, it gets my vote. - Garythesnail

Fun, and harder than Dream Team.

36 Ratchet and Clank

If Insomniac games plays it's cards right this could be both a good Video Game based Movie AND a good Movie based Video Game, that'd be a real one-two punch right there.
There's reason to be excited.
