Your Top Game Of 2016!

Recommended Posts

This thread will be used for us to talk about what game(s) is/are the best in 2016 even though it's still early.  However, our views/opinions will change as the year progresses.  This thread will also be used for the posting of TKOH Forum's Power Rankings which will start in a few weeks and change almost every week after its start.

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright is probably my favorite so far.

Bound to change, but it's really solid! Nice considering I've been a bit disappointed with most of the releases in 2016 thus far. FarCry especially since I really missed having a cool villain tying things together. There weren't any memorable antagonist, or protagonists in Primal.

Now i'd say XCOM 2, but that will most likely change as the year progresses.

Changing to Dark Souls III, wondering if it'll be a lock or not.

Ladies and gentlemen, here's the 1st edition of the 2016 TKOH Power Rankings.  These rankings are based on mainstream and gamer score throughout Metacritic, Game Rankings, and Steam.  In the end, the top 40 games will advance to the 2016 Ultimate Video Games Battle unless you want me to change the number of qualified games.   So, without further ado:

1. Dark Souls III

2. Stardew Valley

3. XCOM 2

4. The Witness

5. Fire Emblem Fates

6. Pony Island

7. Ratchet & Clank

8. Salt & Sanctuary

9. MLB The Show 16

10. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

11. SUPERHOT

12. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

13. Layers of Fear

14. Unravel

15. Firewatch

16. Tom Clancy's The Division

17. EA Sports UFC 2

18. Quantum Break

19. Far Cry Primal

20. Street Fighter V

21. Deponia Doomsday

22. Pokken Tournament

23. Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

24. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth

25. Amplitude

26. Minecraft: Story Mode

27. LEGO Marvel's Avengers

28. Hyrule Warriors Legends

29. Assassin's Creed Chronicles

30. Bombshell

Damn, wasn't expecting to get 30 games in there.  Beware, not many spring games make it to the UVGB since the best stuff gets released in the Fall months.  So, I'll update the Power Rankings ever 2-3 weeks.

Why bother with Top games of 2016 now? It's April. 

With that said, Fire Emblem Fates

We typically start Top Games threads around Spring.  You'll have an opportunity to change your picks as the year progresses.

I haven't played many of the games that came out this year but I will say that Dark Souls 3 is really good, I am just salty about the game corrupting my data 2 times already when I have put a total of 45 hours on both characters. I was playing SFV and thought I would love it but it really doesn't resonate with me so I have just been playing Melee/Project M Legacy (while not an official game release it did come out in 2016). I heard from my brother that the new Ratchet and Clank is amazing and brings the series back to the beginning but adds a sort of rpg element. Zero Escape comes out this year iirc and I have recently been playing 999 so that is something I am looking forward to, as well as Persona 5 if that ends up coming out this year.
