Hey everyone, I'm Jeff, and what a year it's been for video games, right?
To close out 2016 I'm here to roundup my favorite games of the year, of course, in no particular order.
Now, I'm only going to mention five of my favorites here so be sure to check out the full list over on cnet.com.
So, let's start things off with a no brainer Uncharted 4, it's not easy living up to the hype but this game actually did it.
A great story, intense and compelling action sequences and over the top production values, obviously makes this one 2016 Best.
And how about Doom, right?
Doom's a game that had no business being good, but lo and behold, it's without a doubt one of the best shooters of the last five years.
Now sure, the multiplayer mode wasn't really worth investing that much time in.
But man, that campaign was epic [NOISE].
Speaking of surprises I have to admit Titanfall2 campaign was its own slight of brilliant too.
While the original didn't have any single paramode, the one in Titanfall2 actually outshine, it multiplier offering.
Okay lets switch gears a little bit and talk about the endegames of 2016.
I fell in love with the story and presentation of Firewatch, which hit back in February.
Hello, Two Forks tower.
Hello, whoever this is.
It's Henry, right?
A really unique art style combined with spectacular storytelling and fantastic performances by Rich Sommer and Cissy Jones made this one truly a memorable experience.
And finally I have to give some love to Inside, it's the follow up to Limbo from the small team at Play Dev.
Inside was a darkened atmospheric side scroller, with a wonderfully bizarre story and style.
Its puzzles were smartly designed, and often terrifying, making this one a complete package well worth its price So there you have it, some of my favorite games of 2016.
There are plenty more to mention so be sure to check out the full list over on CNET.
