Top 5 Games of 2016

I think it can be safely said that 2016 was a good year for games. While it didn’t have the amazing highs of 2015, like The Witcher 3 or Arkham Knight or Fallout 4, it had more variety, and a more sustained output of good games. And while 2016 had three huge sandboxes, this year had a bit more diversity in its big releases. We had great narrative-driven games (I refuse to use the term ‘walking simulator’), quite a few innovative shooters, and even some big platformers. Anyway, enough babbling, here are my top 5 games of 2016 Continue reading “Top 5 Games of 2016”

Top 5 Games I Missed in 2016

For the most part, 2016 was a good year for gaming. A very good year, in fact. There were a lot of really good releases, which I’ll get around to for one of these. Actually, there were so many that I missed a lot of big titles, and while not everything on this list I can say is “really good”, they’re big enough releases that I feel bad about missing them. So without further delay, here are the 5 top games I missed in 2016 Continue reading “Top 5 Games I Missed in 2016”

Top 10 Comics of 2016

Everyone loves reading top 5/10 lists, right? Well, it’s a guilty pleasure, but it’s also nice to get others’ opinions and have your own validated. And since I already do annual video game lists, I figured it’d only be right to do one for comics as well. Also, this may be because I feel bad about not praising Grayson #12 enough last year, even though it was an absolutely amazing issue and I’ve praised it to anyone who would listen. But yeah, that’s what this is going to be: ranking the top 10 series of the year, with particular focus on a specific issue if it’s a standout (the covers don’t mean that particular issue was good; I just like certain covers or don’t want to reuse covers I’ve used before). My general rule is that the series has to have released at least one issue this year. Anyway, these are my top 10 arbitrarily ranked comic books of 2016.

Oh, and just assume all these series have amazing art unless I say otherwise.

Warning: Mild Spoilers.

This is a little late for a lot of reasons, but I figured I might as well put it out there. In ascending order, here’s what I consider to be the top 5 games of 2015: Continue reading “My Top 5 Games of 2015”

Top 5 Games I missed In 2015

So 2015 was a big year for me. I got back into gaming by buying an Xbone, and built my first gaming PC. So of course, I had to play catch-up, meaning I missed a lot of stuff. With the Winter (Summer in Australia) Steam Sale under way, it seemed fitting to list the big games I missed. Here are the games that I REALLY wish I got around to in 2015, in descending order: Continue reading “Top 5 Games I missed In 2015”
