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.
