Plenty of great games this year where I thankfully didn't have to scrounge up 10 entries but rather was forced to cut a much longer list down.
Hopefully 2017 proves to be just as entertaining.
Also I'd like to add that this is a very loose list. I had a ton of fun with all of these games and it's hard to leverage something like the brutal and exhilarating fun of demon slaying in Doom against the melancholy and atmospheric exploration of Inside. They're all winners in my book, but non-numbered lists are for suckers so here we go.
LASTLY - Some honorable mentions for 2016 that I also enjoyed:
Dark Souls 3, Mankind Divided, The Division, Infinite Warfare.
