    The gameplay for it is refined making it easy for newcomers and challenging for veterans. Multiple difficulty settings, three campaigns (Birthright, Conquest, Revelation), high replay value, it's nuts. Birthright may have a simple story but that's just only one... one of three scenarios that occur in the game.

    2016 has been a rather unexpected year when it comes to gaming. We’ve had good games, bad games, disappointing games and games that end up getting canned for one reason or another. Regardless, it’s time for a list and it’s not going to be an easy one. I’m not limiting this to just Nintendo games. I’m involving all sorts of games so without further ado, these are my Top 10 Games of 2016.
    Word of warning for everyone… if you find that a game you like isn’t on the list, you are welcome to make your own and share it. I won’t judge you and remember, the only opinion that should ever matter is your own.
    Let us begin.
    10) Song of the Deep - PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
    Kicking off the list we have Song of the Deep, developed and published by Insomniac Games. Song of the Deep is basically Metroid but in an underwater style. I will admit. This game had me intrigued because of its design and presentation. When I got to play it, it was a sight to behold. The presentation for it is incredible with the level of detail to be intense. It’s gameplay leaves a lot to be desired but it fits the world that this game is. Not to mention it’s a bit too simple and short, around 4 hours. I’ll cut some slack since the game is rather cheap and there’s replay value to back it up. This game deserves a bit more appreciation. Sure it’s not the best but for what it’s worth, it’s a soothing and satisfying experience. I recommend that you pick the game up, at least to see for yourself how good it is. It’s $10! It’s not the best but I feel that it deserves to be #10 on my list.
    9) Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS - Nintendo 3DS
    To think that Nintendo would take a risk and bring a game like this to their best-selling handheld is a challenge onto itself. But for its shortcomings, I say that they did a good job. Mario Maker for 3DS is what it is, a port of a game that was on Wii U now fit on the handheld. Nothing more. Nothing less. The only problems I have with the game is that there’s no Amiibo functionality, you can’t play others courses or share courses online and the only way you can share them is through its Streetpass function. But despite its negatives, the game is still really fun and can even push your skills as a gamer/level creator to the test. Had this game allowed you to share courses online and play others’ from the get-go, it’d be rated higher. I recommend playing this on a New 3DS XL because, on a regular 3DS, you can experience crashes. I just want to give you a heads up.
    8) Final Fantasy XV - PlayStation 4, Xbox One (PC coming soon)
    We waited a long time for this game. It originally was going to be part of the Fabula Nova Crystalis as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Unfortunately, it was scrapped and then replaced with this. The wait was long but in the end is worth it. Final Fantasy XV is a great game. Its strong points are the gameplay, the open world location and the many things you can do in this said world. My problems with the game are its lackluster story and the characters. The four protagonists are fleshed out well enough but everything else feels flat. Made worse is that in order to better understand this, you need to watch stuff that’s outside the game like the film Kingsglaive and OVA Brotherhood. Other than that, I couldn’t find anything else wrong but at least Square-Enix is dedicated to making the game better while filling up story bits that should have been added. Thankfully I’m happy with that and it shows that they really want to make the game feel complete. I recommend giving this game a chance. Besides once the negatives are pushed aside, you have a game that’s very satisfying.
    7) Overwatch – PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
    Blizzard has a lot of balls for trying their luck in the first-person shooter genre and it paid off considerably with this game. Overwatch is just that: a first-person shooter game where you and five others can take the fight against the opposition in various modes. They range from escort/stop the payload to capturing defensive points/objectives on the map. Okay. It’s a bit small but that’s not why it’s on the list. Overwatch’s strong points are its setting and characters. No two characters are similar. Each character offers something different and that’s what makes it good. Coupled with the fact that there’s a lot to do in this game, it’s nuts. We already got two new characters, a whole bunch of new modes and events and knowing what 2017 has in store, it’s going to get better. This game is better played if you have friends because it’s all the more satisfying when you achieve victory. I ask you… are you with me?
    6) Paper Mario: Color Splash – Nintendo Wii U
    I know what you’re thinking. Why is this game on the list? Let me explain. Sure this game uses the same style as Paper Mario: Sticker Star but that’s pretty much it. Why it’s on my list because it is a much better game. Design wise, it is awesome. It is a step up from the previous game and the theme involving paint and colors adds it in perfectly. You can tell when you travel through Prisma Island. The addition of restoring the world through paint offers something different. Using cards instead of stickers is a lot better. The humor this game has is spot on with some being very funny to listen. Color Splash offers a lot here and I say it is miles better especially since it’s released on a system that’s on its deathbed. I only wish that Nintendo could go back to its roots with the game offering what it should be, instead of this. But for what it’s worth, I say it’s a must buy. Truthfully it is a must buy and I recommend this game.
    Enjoying the list so far? Good because we’re now reaching the halfway point of this list. There’s no going back for us now.
    5) Fire Emblem Fates – Nintendo 3DS
    Three years after the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening, we get a game that not only is good but offers so much. I’m talking about Fire Emblem Fates and I speak on behalf of everything the game offers. What’s different from the previous games is its branching campaigns. You play as Corrin, a young noble who was born in the kingdom of Hoshido but was raised by the kingdom of Nohr. When both kingdoms declare war on each other, you have to make a choice on whose family you would side. Should you side with Hoshido, the kingdom you were born in as your Birthright. Should you side with Nohr, the kingdom that raised you and follows the side of Conquest. Or will you choose neither side and instead work to have both kingdoms unite under one banner and learn of a Revelation that threatens all. That is what makes the game stand out. The three campaigns: Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation offer hours of gameplay and customization that can drive you nuts. Replay value here is through the roof, along with additional content via DLC drives it even further. I won’t go into too much detail but if you haven’t picked up this game, you should. I recommend trying your luck to get the Special Edition of the game, which has all 3 campaigns in one DLC. But if you are getting either Birthright or Conquest, expect to spend a lot just to get the rest. It’s why this game gets the #5 on my slot on this list.
    4) Gravity Rush Remastered – PlayStation 4
    In 2012, a game called Gravity Rush was released on the PlayStation Vita. It was a game that was fun, different and offered something new. Sadly not many people got to play it due to being released on a handheld that Sony never gave a damn about. Four years later, SCE Studio and Project Siren bring this game over to the PlayStation 4 and my god, it is incredible. Gravity Rush Remastered is marvelous. Seeing the game in glorious HD is jaw dropping. It's nuts! What’s even better is that it runs at a solid 60 frames per second. Flawless 60fps. It is perfect. They also refined the game’s controls making things such as sliding across the city seamless. You can use the back buttons on the PS4 controller but there’s also the option to use the DualShock 4’s motion controls so it offers some variety for players. What’s even better is that the Remastered port includes all the DLC for the game and at a price of $30, how can you say no to that? You simply can’t.
    This game is what made the PlayStation Vita stand out but now that it’s on a PS4, it’s the go-to game for anyone wanting this console. I highly recommend it. It is a must buy, without a doubt and it should prep anyone for the eventual release of Gravity Rush 2 coming in January.
    3) Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita and PC
    WayForward should be praised and commended for making a game like this. Not a lot of people are going to like having this as my #3 spot but this is a perfect example of a Kickstarter campaign done right, aside from Shovel Knight. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is amazing. There is so much good to say here such as the presentation. Design-wise, it’s a step up from the previous game. 2.5D at its finest with the character models being at its absolute best. Jake Kaufman does it again with the music here and all the tracks are addicting to listen to. Very addicting. The gameplay is similar to the first two games but it’s improved and easy enough for anyone to pick up and play. Hopefully, with the upcoming DLC like Risky Boots’ campaign, Half-Genie Hero is going to be one that’s worth every penny. Show love to WayForward. Get this game now!
    2) Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice – Nintendo 3DS
    The Ace Attorney series has endured for more than 15 years with a strong and devoted following. 2013’s Dual Destinies is one a lot of people were hyped for and though nowadays is a bit mixed it was a welcome addition. Three years later, Phoenix Wright returns in full force with the sixth game in the main franchise: Spirit of Justice. Similar to the previous entries, it’s a visual novel style game where as Phoenix Wright (or any of the others like Apollo & Athena) you must investigate witnesses, find evidence and discover the truth through the courts. This time around, the story takes Phoenix to the Kingdom of Khura’in and in that country, defense attorneys are outlawed. Spirit of Justice introduces the Divination Seances where it details the last thing the victim sees before they pass on. But the truth isn’t always black and white. That’s where we come in to figure out if what the victim sees is the truth or not.
    Many staples that are prevalent in the previous entries return here but its biggest points are its story and music. The story is a bit dark and intense for a game like this and the music is still its shining moment. Believe me, there are some tracks that are incredible to listen to. Whereas Dual Destinies serves as a return to form for the well-respected attorney, Spirit of Justice serves as a passing of the torch for Apollo Justice, allowing him to take the spotlight he deserves. It’s reason enough why this gets the #2 spot.
    1) Pokémon Sun & Moon – Nintendo 3DS
    Some people like the game, others didn't. To tell you the truth, I enjoyed the game. As a fan of Pokémon since Generation 1, I had a lot of expectations. They paid off when it came out. Nintendo, GameFreak & The Pokemon Company took a lot of risks in making this stand out over the previous generations. Removing some staples like Gyms, HMs seems crazy when you think about it. However, when I got to play it for myself, I can say is wow… they nailed it. The game does hold your hand a lot at times but you do get the chance to explore at your leisure. The Island Challenges are interesting and provide something different instead of going to a gym and earning a badge. It’s emphasized a lot and I like it personally. Z-Moves are also cool and how they look is amazing. But if I were to net any nitpicks, it’s the story. That leaves a lot to be desired. I wish it can improve but at least the game is still the way you remember it.
    Pokemon Sun & Moon may not be for everyone but for those that put the time into it, it’s a pretty awesome game. I recommend it and yes, it’s one that I feel should be #1 on my list.
    Honorable Mentions: Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Pokken Tournament, Yo-Kai Watch 2 Bony Spirits & Fleshy Souls, Ratchet & Clank PS4, Kirby: Planet Robobot
    That’s pretty much it for this list. Remember, my list is 100% opinionated and you are welcome to disagree with me. If you guys have a list of your own Top 10s or if you feel that a game you played should be on the list, let me know in the comments. I look forward to hearing from everyone.

    Off-topic: About FFXV, I enjoyed the game in spite of the issues. The car was an integral part of gaming but there's always the fast travel option. Makes it easier. Oh and using Ramuh to take down a boss when ice magic is useful is like... uh.
    I feel these suggestions are just as good. Have a balance between Joe solo reviews and Joe & Other Joe review.

    That's a very smart move. I think that would be a good plan.

    I don't mind Joe doing things like Let's Plays, Movie Reviews, etc. If it makes things easier for him, I'm okay with it.
    Personally I hope things get better for him cause depression sucks. I have it and it's not a pretty thing. Why do you think I had like two attempts and the second made me end up in a hospital for a couple of hours. It was horrible.
  6. Societalmoutbreather liked a post in a topic by Aaron Lannister in Death Note Hollywood Live Action 2017   
    i agree Hunger Games is not a rip off of battle royale the differences are quite a lot.

    However back on track the writer of Death Note Hollywood version doesn't seem to understand Death Note and the casting choices are atrocious.
    He wants to make Death Note into some stupid gritty version with a lot of violence and edgy sex.

    Have you seen the Hollywood live action  adaptation of "All You Need Is Kill" ?It's the best one to date.
     
    Now I hope Hollywood could do the same treatment to Attack On Titan, Full  Metal Alchemist or Cowboy Bebop.

    The casting choices for this live action remake of Death Note is making me sick...
    I don't mean to be rude or anything but L as a black guy? REALLY?
    Ugh hollywood why... ZACK EFRON WOULD OF BEEN A BETTER L and or Light!
     
    and yes it seems like they're really serious about making this film. They even have the budget posted *Sigh* i'm done.
    Death Note director says live-action film will be full of nudity, swearing and violence
    http://www.polygon.com/2016/9/16/12941782/death-note-adam-wingard-netflix
    After reading that I have no doubt this movie is going to be garbage, Death Note didn't have much Violence nor do I remember much Nudity... and Swearing really? WHO CARES ABOUT SWEARING. Oh but of course the director has only directed shitty horror movies in the past great.

    To be honest I don't see the hassle with Quiet. Yes it is fan servie but c'mon? Have you guys seen an anime or read a manga(japanese comic) before? Unless the genre is horror, gore or mature psychological stuff there is bound to be fanservice. It's just how Japan works. I remember playing JRPG's and seeing a ton of this stuff. Well if you manage to ignore it you are gonna have a better day in the end.
     
    My issue with this game is the rest that doesnt work. Like the story for example. I went in and gave MGS a try, because of the awesome story, not because of the stealth gameplay. And so far the story hasnt really delivered for me.
  15. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in MGSV Phantom Pain: the TRUTH about MB coins, microtransaction, and how it impacts FOB multiplayer.   
    The more FOBS you have the more troops you have and supplies and it makes it much much easier to get higher level troops to defend the FOBS.  Not only that it makes it much easier to get cash to research new defense items etc.
     
    Having more FOBS actually makes it alot harder to attack them once the work has been put into them as you can raise your defense teams level much more.
  16. R3dSn0w liked a post in a topic by Aaron Lannister in Don't give Activision and Bungie anymore of your money   
    Not to mention they completely cut corners on things like a Good LFG system and also Text Chat and or a good Social System over-all to interact with others.
  17. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by Quinnsdaddy11 in Don't give Activision and Bungie anymore of your money   
    I think the thing that I am fighting against, is Bungie and Activision straight out lied about Destiny.  Leading up to Destiny's release they talked it up as being bigger than Halo, but it's not.  Halo had a complete story, and a competent amount of content.  I hate the price structure, I already spent $90 on the main game and the expansion pass (bought them at the same time) and now they want $40 more to give the game a reasonable amount of content.  If they get away with this bad things will follow.
    Until Dawn looks like a PS4 version of Heavy Rain, nothing wrong with that but $60 might be too high for it.

    Beth still owns the ES license, what they did is give permission for Zenimax to use it. Doesn't mean that I don't feel that ESO is a disgrace to the franchise. 
  19. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by Arreyanne in ESO developers are incompetent   
    Zenimax has been lost in another world since closed beta sorry to say.
     
    Sometimes I felt during closed beta they really didn't care about feedback, bugs, or anything as long as the server was stable
  20. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by Bullslayer in ESO developers are incompetent   
    They didn't, I wrote them a very specific email begging them to post pone the launch and fix the bugs because in server stress test right before launch more than half the low level content was not working. I know I wasn't the only player to do so, Zeni was hell bent on meeting the launch and ignored all the warnings and we got the Angry Review as a result and now the game is b2p when it was supposed to be sub.
  21. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by DDAWK999 in ESO developers are incompetent   
    realy well if thats true then ESO thats complete bullcrap im sorry dude. I mean like you had to pay 60 bucks just to lose your game wow im  ashamed at bethesda man. I mean like bethesda was by fav company but then ESO came out just it having 60 bucks is bad enouph but it getting taken from you after paying 60 bucks that Admin bully. im sorry man
  22. Aaron Lannister liked a post in a topic by Bullslayer in ESO developers are incompetent   
    In the video "we are listening to feedback"...yes and apparently you are banning negative feed back....way to go Zenimax....lol anyway, srry to hear about this man. I can understand not implementing text chat in a console based mmo because I have yet to see a console that does it well like Laser said it just doesn't work most of the time with a controller. However from what I understand both new consoles support keyboard so there is that.
     
    What I don't get Is if they where so focused on making sure communication still worked with out the text chat, why the hell didn't they try to do this for the pc as well, sure the consoles get voice chat but us pc guys are left to fend for our selves using third party software just to communicate to each other quickly in a game that makes quick communication really important. So there realy is two sides to this coin and Zeni is crapping on bolth. All versions of the game should have both voice and Text chat options so that players can pick what suits them best for communication.

    Evil Within really? Why was that game such a dissapointment? I'm quite enjoying it right now. It's a fun survival horror game.
     
    But anyways if there's a game that deserves it the most it's Destiny Hands down. I also called that Bullshit must buy DLC compared to other games where it's SUPPLEMENTARY not Mandatory like Destiny.

    Finished the campaign yesterday, Spoilers: after the last cutscene of the last mission called Terminus was shown, it ended abruptly with Irons and wasn't as a satisfying ending as I had thought it would be. The campaign was good and varied at times though with all the future tech that you had in missions.
