    GOTY: Overwatch,
    Runner Ups.: Cyber Sleuth, Neptunia VII, and Dragon Quest VII.

    Overwatch is just a ton of fun. And Cyber Sleuth and Neptunia both told stories that's more serious for them while still keeping their humor. And I absolutely love Dragon Quest VII. I think it might be my favorite in the series.

    Old GOTY: Undertale
    Runner Up: Shantae: Risky's Revenge

    Gotta admit, I put off Undertale because of all the hype and it's fandom. But it deserves all the hype. And fandoms will fandumb, nothing you can do about that. And Risky's Revenge is a lot of fun. I beat it with full intentions of getting The Pirate's Curse, but I got distracted and now I need to play that and 1/2 Genie Hero.

    I was pretty bad about beating games this year. I need to work on that this year. I personally blame Overwatch and XIV. They keep distracting me.

    Okay, of I know. The best older game that I played for the first time this year was Undertale. No contest.

    The best older game I played this year was Uncharted Waters 2 New Horizons for the SNES. Great game still with tons of replayability. Still great for being released in 199X.

    Games I bought that were released in 2016 were...

    Firewatch
    Uncharted 4
    Pokémon Go
    No Man's Sky
    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
    World of Final Fantasy
    Final Fantasy XV

    Honestly, I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it is about Firewatch but for the lower price, I think it probably won out for me as game of the year... maybe. Of the bigger name games, I'll probably go with World of Final Fantasy. But Uncharted 4, FFXV and Deus Ex were all real contenders. NMS wasn't as awful to me as it was to most people, but it wasn't on the level of the other games.

    Stardew Valley for me. I got pretty far, but my girlfriend got so into the game that I basically let her have at it. I plan on going back to my file one day and rounding it off. Did most of the major stuff as it is!

    It's not Dark Souls 1, but Dark Souls 3 was still the best 2016 release that I played. I'm usually several years "behind" though so I haven't played a few others that I suspect might be contenders.

    Uncharted 4 was the best game released in 2016 that I played. Pokemon Sun may beat it once I get around to it.

    Still the game I had the most fun with this year was Dragon Age Inquisition.

    So far it's King's Quest. The first chapter was released in 2015, but the majority of the game was released in 2016.

    I'm not sure if that makes it legal for 2016 or not, but right now it's beating out XCOM2.

    I haven't had a chance to play Doom or Uncharted 4 yet, so it may change.

    Man, it's hard for me. I really loved Final Fantasy XV, Uncharted 4, and Watch Dogs 2, nearly equally for different reasons.

    Overwatch is the only choice for game of the year for me.

    I heard that official multiplayer support was coming for Stardew Valley, and that would be awesome.

    While FFXV does have its share of flaws in its current state, it's still easily the best game for me this gen. I'll be looking forward to seeing how the game shapes up as it gets closer to its final form.

    New in 2016: Uncharted 4
    A great end to a great game series. Nathan Drake is by far my favourite of the many rugged straight white male protagonists.

    Played for first time in 2016: Samurai Warriors 4
    I'm not saying it's the greatest game ever, but I didn't play many new games last year, and it's a lot of fun.
