JB The Gamer's Top 5 Games Of 2016

I couldn't really pick any one game for a 2016 Game of the Year. So instead I decided to go with my own Top 5 Games of 2016. Now, this is a small list of the best games of 2016 that I played and really enjoyed. The numbered order on list doesn't mean that any of the games are better then the other. So, here is JB The Gamer's Top 5 Games of 2016.

1). DOOM

DOOM was one hell of a come back of the franchise from ID Software. What made this an even bigger feat was that most of the original talent had left ID Software before this game had been released. I really enjoyed this amazing reboot of the franchise. ID Software and Bethesda did an awesome job bringing the classic DOOM gameplay to 2016. The thing that prevented it from getting a perfect score was the lack-luster multiplayer and not so great snapmap feature. But the single-player alone is worth getting this game. If you haven't played DOOM yet, what the hell are you waiting for.

2). XCOM 2

I couldn't wait to play the sequel to 2013's turn-based strategy hit game XCOM. It was worth the wait. I spent the entire month of February playing the game. I was also very proud of my self for having beaten it on the Hard difficulty. If you like turn-based strategy games then both XCOM and XCOM 2 are worth playing.

3). Battlefield 1

DICE and EA finally made a game worth playing in the Battlefield franchise since Bad Company 2. Battlefield 1 is how to do multiplayer right in this franchise. Though, I felt the single-player was very short and lacking substance (never understood why the media praised it). But the Multiplayer is the meat and potatoes of this game.

4). Planet Coaster

Planet Coaster is what Roller Coaster Tycoon World should have been. Frontier did one hell of a job bring this genre back to life. The amount of freedom in creating your park is amazing. Though it isn't without faults. If you were looking for your Roller Coaster Tycoon fix, then skip the horrible mess that is Roller Coaster Tycoon World and pick this title up. It is worth the asking price.

5). Killing Floor 2

Killing Floor 2 kind of came out of no where. I didn't even know this game came out of Early Access till I started seeing reviews about it. Killing Floor 2 is a really fun co-op survival shooter that is worth the asking price. I always have a blast playing it online with others or with some of my friends. Even though it can get repetative it is always fun to play for a few hours a day or so.

These where the games I had the most fun with in 2016 and also the ones that came out with the highest review scores. Now that 2016 is over, I am looking forward to gaming in 2017. There looks to be a lot of promising games coming out this year. So lets all just keep on gaming!
