GAMIFY TOP 5:

MOST ANTICIPATED VIDEO GAMES OF 2016

With a new year, we can expect advancement in many areas when it comes to the gaming world. The further we get into this current gen, the better the graphics will be, the bigger and more ambitious game creators will get.

Naturally we gamers can benefit a great deal from developers learning to push the boundaries of both the XBOX1 and PS4. Below is a list of my personal most anticipated video games of 2016.

1. THE DIVISION

Tom Clancy games have been some of the best tactical/ shooter games I have enjoyed as a gamer. I have fond memories of splinter cell games, and genuinely have respect for most things UBISOFT decides to publish, as they are usually well polished. This open world RPG/shooter hybrid looks very promising, and definitely should have the attention of gamers who enjoy shooter games with a narrative focus, or those with plenty of gamer friends looking for co/op action.

2. MASS EFFECT : ANDROMEDA

I love the Mass Effect series, and while this new entry doesn’t tie directly with the original trilogy, it is definitely something fans of the original should check out. Details have been scarce, and all of my enthusiasm comes from the greatness of the previous ME games. We should all expect a truly epic tale, with tough decisions to make, and fun combat. Theres no way they can mess that up right?

3. WILDLANDS

The second TOM CLANCY game on this list, but with good reason. While it is also another open world shooter, this game has it’s own set of strengths I feel will add a lot of value, and honestly might end up being more enjoyable than THE DIVISION. This is a singleplayer/ co op open world, similar to THE DIVISION, but from what I gather it stands to play completely different. More like a military shooter, instead of an RPG game. There are also vehicles and dynamic day/night/weather cycles to add into the mix.

4. TOMB RAIDER (PS4)

We all know by now the newest TOMB RAIDER game is excellent. Unfortunately those like myself with a PS4 have not had the pleasure of enjoying it. XBOX made a smart call with the timed exclusivity, cause I am almost tempted to pick up the XBOX1, but I guess I’ll just have to wait it out.

5. FOR HONOR

This game has just made my list, mostly because there is not much known about it… but c’mon its Vikings VS. Ninjas VS. Knights in online PVP medieval combat.What is there to not like about this idea?

Making this list has made me realize that I need dedicated savings for gaming in 2016.

Let me what you are most excited for!
