Thanks for all the games, 2016. You weren't good for anything else!

In a year that saw two step-up consoles releases, tons of VR and more sequels than you probably wanted to play, 2016 also brought us a wonderful variety of independent and big budget interactive entertainment well worth your time and money.

The video above only covers about half of the best games. For the full list browse the gallery below.

You won't agree with everything on my list, I'm sure of it. But take a moment to browse my picks and let me know what you think.
