Last year was a pretty good year for gaming. We got some really great games and this year seems to be no different. Here are my top 10 upcoming games of 2016.
The new Doom game looks really good. I enjoyed the beta that I recently played, shortly before I got rid of my Xbox One, and it only made the wait for this game that much harder. Doom is a lot of fun, but I don’t like the fact that it’s not really a modern FPS game. I was hoping for something like Wolfenstein. This Doom game should be good, but probably won’t be great.
9. The Division
A few years ago this would have been in my top 3, but that was when I liked Ubisoft. I’m very skeptical about every title that they release these days, but I’ll be lying if I told you that I wasn’t looking forward to The Division. Here’s to hoping they don’t fuck it up.
8. Kingdom Under Fire II
Kingdom Under Fire has a special place in my heart. I remember playing it back on the original Xbox and Xbox 360 years ago. Kingdom Under Fire II, strange name considering there’s already a part 2, looks like a really great game, but I’m not completely sold on it. It does look really interesting though and here’s to hoping that it blows us away when it finally releases.
7. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
I really loved the first Mirror’s Edge game. I was about to place this in the once in a lifetime experience category with Alan Wake because it had been so long since the game originally released I knew the chance for a sequel was slim. Well… the sequel is almost upon us and I’m really excited to have the chance to play as Faith again.
6. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
I know next to nothing about this game, but since I’m a fan of both Shen Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem I can’t help, but be excited at the ideal of a crossover between the two franchise. The 30 minute gameplay video that I watched made me drop this a few spots, but I still plan on getting it day one for the Wii U.
5. Quantum Break
This is probably going to be one of two reasons why I’ll regret getting rid of my Xbox One. Quantum Break looks amazing and it’s made by one of my favorite developers. I have high expectations for this game and I’m confident that Remedy Entertainment will deliver like they always do.
4. Xcom 2
Xcom Enemy Unknown was a fantastic game. It was hard, almost unfairly hard, and I lost earth more times then I care to admit, but I still loved it. I would just change my strategy and try again. Xcom 2 took everything from Enemy Unknown and refined it while adding in new features. This is one game that’s going to be a GOTY candidate for me.
3. Dark Souls III
You knew this game would make my list. I’m a Dark Souls nut and I plan on getting this game day one. Dark Souls III looks like it’s going to be the best one yet and I’m super hyped about it.
2. The Legend Of Zelda [Wii U]
This game is taking forever to release, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be releasing this year and when it does my social life will go on hiatus like it did with Fallout 4.
- Mass Effect Andromeda
Shepard’s story is over. The greatest three games I’ve ever played in my life has moved on to something new and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead in the Mass Effect Universe. It’s funny because I’m currently playing through the trilogy, again, while I wait for this game to be released. Here’s to hoping that this one is as good as the previous three.
Resident Evil 0
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
Happy new year guys.
