Gotta go with XCOM 2, DOOM and Inside for 2016. Many great standouts though, but these three did it for me.

I'd have to say Uncharted 4 for sure, followed by Overwatch and Oxenfree.

Top 5 Games Of 2016?

Jan 11, '17, 9:59am

It's a question I ask myself at the end of every year. This year was actually rather hard, as I didn't get to play as many games as last year and there were some good ones I missed out on. There are also a few games I am yet to complete and am still playing. However, I managed to compile my list of my Top 5 Games. In 2015, a PS4 Exclusive made the list and another one made it again.

#1: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
#2: Dishonored 2
#3: Final Fantasy XV
#4: Titanfall 2
#5: Mirror's Edge: Catalyst

My reasons for these games being in my Top 5 are of course my own. Are any of these games in your Top 5? What are your Top 5 Games of 2015? Tell us! :D

Is this intended to be a different discussion than what is already happening here?

Well, crap. Somehow I managed to miss that. If I knew this existed, I wouldn't have made this. My bad. XD

No worries. I can lock this and merge it over! I just wasn't sure if you were planning on taking a different direction.

Not a surprise, but not any less deserved. Uncharted 4 will be a game I replay years to come.

Definitely a deserving winner, someday I'll go back and try to get the platinum for it. The first playthrough was so great I felt I should just leave it alone afterwards, went to the multiplayer, got hooked and since have only spent a little time in single player starting a Crushing run.

I'd be interested to see a breakdown of the votes if you have them? Or at least know what the runners-up were?

Would love to see vote totals for each.

Uncharted 4 definitely wasn't my GOTY, but I have very few bad things to say about it. I was impressed by how much of a step up it was from the PS3 trilogy.

McLaren will probably slap me for doing this, but whatever.

I believe they refer to that as a landslide victory?

Cool—thanks for the data! I was curious about a) how definitive it was and b) how other games fared. I'm heartened to see that Inside got so much love.

Thanks Frosti, I think it was pretty obvious Uncharted was going to win, so I was more curious about how everything else faired.

A bit sad The Witness did so poorly, but I guess those types of games aren't as popular as most of the others on the list. Nice to see R&C up there in 4th though.

No problem. If it weren't for the fact that had been posted in the mod section of the forums I would have been asking to see it too.
I wasn't surprised by the winner at all, and like both of you was more curious as to how well other games did. Wasn't surprised to see Overwatch in 2nd, but I was pleasantly surprised to see Doom managed to secure the 3rd place.
The only games that I feel did particularly poorly were Pokemon S&M and CoD, which given that they come out almost annually (CoD is annual, Pokemon is about one every 15-20 months) it isn't a huge surprise to me. Makes the games less special when they are so familiar (or at least that's always been how I saw it).
