2016 In Video Games So Far - Your Mid-Year Reports


2016 In Video Gamies So Far

I did a thread like this last year following E3, so I decided to do another one. We've had some big games release earlier on in the year. So, with that being said, what are your thoughts on 2016 so far as it pertains to video games? I've come up with a few questions as well. Just answer whatever applies.

What are your Top 3 or 5* Games so far (in 2016)?
*If you can only name one, just name one

What are the Top 3 or 5 Games you're looking forward to in the latter half of 2016?

Biggest Surprise of the year so far?

Biggest Disappointment of the year so far?

Your System of choice?

Has your favorite genre been well represented in the first half of 2016? If not, will the second half of 2016 fit your tastes better?

Has 2016, so far, been a better year for you as far as games are concerned or has it been worse?

If you have one or two current generation consoles (or have upgraded your PC to specs befitting this gen), are you interested in purchasing a system you do not have in the future or near future?

------------


What are your Top 3 or 5* Games so far?
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth
Dark Souls III
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (by virtue of being one of my favorite games 10 years ago )

What are the Top 3 or 5 Games you're looking forward to in the latter half of 2015?
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII
Final Fantasy XV
Nioh (hopefully)
Dragon Quest VII 3DS
Gears of War 4

Biggest Surprise of the year so far?
Final Fantasy XV actually releasing in 2016

Biggest Disappointment of the year so far?
E3. I was not as enamored by the conferences or what was shown than most of the people on here. I may be one of the few.

Your System of choice?
PS4

Has your favorite genre been well represented in the first half of 2016? If not, will the second half of 2016 fit your tastes better?
Somewhat with Digimon, Odin Sphere, and Nights of Azure. The second half of 2016 definitely fits my tastes better with DQVII 3DS, FFXV, WoFF, Star Ocean, and a few others.

Has 2016, so far, been a better year for you as far as games are concerned or has it been worse?
It's actually been quite mediocre for me personally. The latter half of 2016 should be better.

If you have one or two current generation consoles (or have upgraded your PC to specs befitting this gen), are you interested in purchasing a system you do not have in the future or near future?
I'm buying a Xbox One S this year.

Your turn, guys.

Re: 2016 In Video Games So Far - Your Mid-Year Reports

Top games so far

I can't really say, honestly. This has been the least prolific gaming year of my life for various reasons. I haven't played anything from 2016 I'd consider great outside of the DOOM campaign. I've played a few other great games but they've been from prior years


Looking forward to

No Man's Sky
Quake: Champions (IF that's coming out in 2016)
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided



Biggest surprise of the year so far:

EA's UFC 2 actually being a solid game



Biggest disappoinment:

games in Canada going up to $79 at full retail essentially turning a hobby into calculated financial risk



Has your favorite genre been represented well?

Not that I know of



System of choice

PC, but I've been neglecting it this year. The Steam summer sale will change that tho. PS4 is second by default, but tbh I only use it for the Youtube and Netflix app these days



Has the year better better than expected or worse?

I honesty think that the state of gaming is pretty dire right now and been thinking this for several years, so I'd say the year met my expectations. Again tho, haven't had the opportunity to play much


Interest in buying another system

NX, maybe. I was jelly that I couldn't try the new Star Fox this year. I love Nintendo, I just don't have enough incentive to purchase one of their systems atm. ZERO interest in the PS4.5 since I already own the system. There's better things to waste money on. I don't need or want an Xbox One so no f^cks given about Scorpio ether

Uncharted 4

The Last Guardian
No Man's Sky
FIFA 17
WWE 2K17
Dishonoured 2

Biggest Surprise of the year so far?

The Crash Bandicoot easter egg in Uncharted 4.

Biggest Disappointment of the year so far

Having to wait a few more month before we get a Red Dead announcement.



Your System of choice?
PS4

Has your favorite genre been well represented in the first half of 2016? If not, will the second half of 2016 fit your tastes better?

I got to witness some of the greatest visuals from Uncharted 4 that I never imagined would be possible ten years ago.

Has 2016, so far, been a better year for you as far as games are concerned or has it been worse?

It's been alright but I'm hoping for it to pick up around the holiday season.

If you have one or two current generation consoles (or have upgraded your PC to specs befitting this gen), are you interested in purchasing a system you do not have in the future or near future?

I'm pretty happy with the PS4 but the new Zelda might tempt me to purchase another console.

Re: 2016 In Video Games So Far - Your Mid-Year Reports

2016 In Video Gamies So Far

What are your Top 3 or 5* Games so far (in 2016)?
I don't really have any. This year hasn't been impressive so far. I want to give it to Valkyrie Chronicles, but that game's a re-release. The Ratchet and Clank remake was good, but they could have done more with it. I was banking on Starfox Zero to deliver for me...and it didn't.

What are the Top 3 or 5 Games you're looking forward to in the latter half of 2016?

The Last Guardian
Horizon Zero Dawn
Final Fantasy IV
The Batman game from Telltale
Maybe that Spiderman game from Insomniac. I thought Sunset Overdrive was crap though, so I'm wary of non Ratchet and Clank games from Insomniac.

EDIT: Forgot South Park

Biggest Surprise of the year so far?

I guess that VR is coming so soon.

Biggest Disappointment of the year so far?

Fucking Starfox Zero

Fuck you Miyamoto. Shove your "innovation" up your ass.

Your System of choice?

PS4 and nothing else even comes close. They OWN this generation of consoles.

Has your favorite genre been well represented in the first half of 2016? If not, will the second half of 2016 fit your tastes better?

Eh, I like platformers and beat 'em ups...so not really. I also enjoy a good adventure game too, so hopefully Horizon Zero Dawn and The Last Guardian will deliver. And I don't generally play jrpgs anymore, but I'm a die hard FF fan so I'll be playing the new Final Fantasy game when it comes out

Has 2016, so far, been a better year for you as far as games are concerned or has it been worse?

Worse. The last great game I played was Until Dawn, a 2015 game

If you have one or two current generation consoles (or have upgraded your PC to specs befitting this gen), are you interested in purchasing a system you do not have in the future or near future?

I already have a PS4, Xbox One and Wii U, so no. I'm actually more interested in retro gaming at the moment. Once I move into my new house I'm hooking up my old CRT television and busting out my PS 2 and my Gamecube. And I've been playing around with my Gameboy Advance a lot lately. Gaming's kind of boring these days, so it feels like a good time to go back and check out what great games I've missed on previous generations. I want to try that Punisher game from Volition on PS2 and I have a list of Gameboy Advance games I'm interested in playing.

EDIT: Does South Park come out later this year? I want to play that. That's a day 1 buy.

Yep. December 6. You get Stick of Truth for free RIGHT NOW for current consoles with the purchase btw. Some people already have the platinum on PS4.

Re: 2016 In Video Games So Far - Your Mid-Year Reports

What are your Top 3 or 5* Games so far?
1. DOOM
2. Uncharted 4
3. Salt and Sanctuary
4. Total War: Warhammer
5. Ratchet and Clank (Remake)

What are the Top 3 or 5 Games you're looking forward to in the latter half of 2015?
Mafia 3
Civilization VI
Dishonored 2
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Battlefield 1

Biggest Surprise of the year so far?
Salt and Sanctuary - Really hadn't heard anything about this until a week, maybe less, til it's release (think it was Kinda Funny that mentioned it). Then I saw @Sephiroth and @birthday_massacre talking about the game I started to be intrigued. So I decided to buy the game, and I'm glad I did. It's a beautiful looking game, with fantastic combat - very similar to Dark Souls - and the levelling is very well done. I couldn't put it down for weeks. Still need to get teh Platinum for it though...

Biggest Disappointment of the year so far?
Nothing has really disappointed me this year. Probably the games that have been delayed til 2017 when they should have come this year - Horizon: Zero Dawn being one of them

Your System of choice?
PS4

Has your favorite genre been well represented in the first half of 2016? If not, will the second half of 2016 fit your tastes better?
Like pretty much any game that is fun, looks interesting or is just plain good.

Has 2016, so far, been a better year for you as far as games are concerned or has it been worse?
Played a lot of great games, so I've enjoyed it so far.

If you have one or two current generation consoles (or have upgraded your PC to specs befitting this gen), are you interested in purchasing a system you do not have in the future or near future?
Own a PS4, XBONE, Wii U and a gaming PC. But I'll probably get that XBONE S...
