With so many must have games, 2016 is evidently going to be a great year for video games.
For this article:
- We looked at some of the best games that caught our attention
- We talk about why each one deserves a place on this list
Remember: when making this list we felt that these games are a must have for many gamers, but they don’t apply to everyones play style.
Quantum Break has you controlling time in order to stop the Monarch corporation founded by Paul Serene, the main antagonist who also has the ability to control time.
The reason that Quantum Break is on this list is due to the brilliant concept of controlling time.
Come on now: how many people in the world would love this power?
Well, Quantum Break allows these people to do just that (within a game of course)
For Honor is a medieval fighting game that has you fighting as either the:
- Feared Viking warriors
- Noble Knights
- Honorable Samurai
Players can customize everything about their warrior from the gender all the way to the deadly weapons used to annihilate their enemies.
But why is this a must have?
The idea that three of the deadliest nations to have ever reigned, have come together to fight in one large scale war.
It sends shivers through you just thinking about it.
No Mans Sky is an adventure survival game that has players explore a randomly generated planet from a list of over 18 quintillion planets.
(Yes you read that right)
Throughout the game you also gain materials on your travels and they can be used to upgrade your ship and trade with other players.
No Mans Sky is a must have because of its revolutionary feature of procedural generation.
None of the worlds within the game have been custom made by a developer.
Each one of these worlds including its occupancy has been generated by a computer.
Remember that one game that you used to spend all your time on when you were younger?
Well this is its newer, slightly more polished looking version.
Ratchet and Clank is the game that many gamers have played, loved and then replayed due to its humor and simplicity.
Well with 2016 comes a brand new look!
We can almost guarantee that Ratchet and Clank is going to take the gaming industry by storm this year as gamers experience that sweet, sweet nostalgia
Tom Clancy’s The Division is a post-apocalyptic survival game.
You find yourself exploring New York, fighting off gangs as well as other players in order to get the best loot and become the best damn agent you can.
Now its all well and good saying this is a must have game for 2016, but what about its features?
Glad you asked.
Off the bat The Division is an open world co-op survival.
This means you to get to explore a ruined New York in all its glory whilst you and your friends, kill other players or join forces to fight bigger threats.
Finally. The wait is finally over…
With the first Doom (1993) being the most influential and significant within the gaming industry we can expect big things. (Fingers crossed)
The new Doom comes complete with a stunning new engine that allows you to enjoy all the guts and gore you could ever dream off. (In spectacular style of course)
Being the Upcoming reboot here’s what we can expect:
- Classic weapons such as the super shotgun
- Brand new over the top badass weaponry.
- An ode to the original release
At this point in time its too hard to confirm, but here’s hoping.
This series has been known for its rage quits and it’s frustrating game play.
Unlike most games, Dark Souls requires speed and Strategy which we can all agree makes the game A LOT more intense.
One wrong move and it’s game over for you…
They’ve stuck with the same amazing concept through the series so why change now?
Deus Ex has been one of the most entertaining games for us as it has many different ways of completing objectives.
From stealthy short cuts to all guns blazing, there’s a play style for everyone.
Looking at what we enjoyed most about the last Deus Ex, (Human Revolution, 2011) was the detailed animations which we more than hope they include in the latest installment.
Like all the other games in the series, Deus Ex has always successfully delivered with all the way up to the Action cut scenes.
Definitely look forward for this game.
Ghost Recon is an amazing concept of open world exploring all set in the real life continent of the good old South America.
This game stood out due to the incredible co-op play that allows you to play in different ways or just mess around and explore.
Ubisoft, the creators of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, have clearly outdone themself with this one.
But why you ask?
With a brand new engine you can explore the uncharted continent of South America complete with the very best graphics 2016 games have to offer. (Lets hope this one doesn’t end up like another watchdogs)
The Mass Effect series has one of the most in depth story lines and lore
And it clearly shows through the anticipation from the swarms of Mass effect fans eager to get their hands on a copy.
With all this taken into consideration, it makes it really fun to read up and get a better idea of the story and information on enemies and events.
The decision making aspect of Mass Effect is intuitive to use as you can be an ass to people, be their friend or just ignore the decisions and leave them.
But nobody likes an ass now? Do they?
This outstanding fighter tore through the gaming industry when it was newly released.
Being one of the first of its kind it gained immense popularity for arcade gamers.
The combined publishers of Street Fighter have used the game’s popularity as a momentum to propel them into an ever changing gaming industry.
Gamers will thoroughly enjoy the latest installment of street fighter as you can experience the classic fighting in an new beautiful engine.
Recore see’s you as one of the last humans on Earth
Although, you’re not entirely alone:
Exploring the desert you find and resurrect robots and companions that can help and aid you with your objectives.
The entire concept of the game is truly amazing and with a stunning new perspective on game styling, the game-play looks simply beautiful.
Hopefully, this gives you alot to think about when faced with daunting decision on what must have game to buy.
