2016 felt like finding an old lamp, rubbing it, and then getting a really uncool genie. The kinda guy that just wasn’t trying to help you at all. Like if you wished that Pokémon was real he would grant your wish, but he’d only make that garbage Pokémon real. Basically it was a year full of bad stuff, which made a lot of people hate it. But under the shroud of unfortunate and horrible events that formed around 2016, there were a few really cool games.
It took me a while to whittle this list down, but I finally did it. Each game on this list spoke to me in a way unlike any other game I’ve played. I can vividly remember times I had with these video games where I was majorly stressed out at a difficult challenge, laughing until i could feel my ribs hurt, or even crying along at some super sad parts.
This year made me realize how dumb, heartfelt, and genuinely fun video games can be, and I’m happy for that.
Anyways, this is my list of the top 5 games of 2016.
