GOTY 2016 pt 2

Well it came down to Dark Souls 3, Fire Emblem Fates, and Final Fantasy 15. The first to go was FF15, and my game of the year for 2016 is Dark Souls 3.

It was a surprisingly difficult choice, but I think at the ends of things, if a Soulsborne game come out it's likely going to trump all.

Perhaps this wasn't a surprise too those who know me, but there it is.

GOTY 2016 pt 1

A bit late, but here it goes. As always this list is based on the games that I personally played of the new games in 2016 in the UK. Remastered, and HD re releases are not included unless there are significant changes (not just graphical/audio).

Rise of the Tomb Raider (20 yr celebration ed.)
Fire Emblem Fates
Star Ocean: Integrity & Faithlessness
Dark Souls III
Final Fantasy XV

It's a tough list. They were all exceptional, and usually when a Souls game is in the list, that's no contest, but this time it comes down to three pushing through. Fire Emblem, Dark Souls, & FF15.

To be continued...
