Best Video Games of 2016

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 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.

23 Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
24 Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
25 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

26 Pokken Tournament

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

PETA's gonna be mad at this... - djpenquin999

27 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

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 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!

34 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.
