2016 was an interesting year in gaming. Although we did not see the VR Revolution that we were looking forward to (we might have to wait a while for it to really take off) we’ve seen some interesting shifts in the gaming scene. Hero Shooters enjoyed a surge in popularity during the summer, rumours were confirmed about the upcoming mid-generation iteration of consoles with the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox’s Project Scorpio, and we’ve hopefully learned a thing or two about hype and how to be wary of it, not to name any names.
Of course, gaming is nothing without the gamers, and so we’re going to let our staff talk about their own 2016 and how they experienced it in relation to the medium we know and love. Allow us to each tell you a few words about our year in gaming, our own top 10 games of 2016 and what titles we’re looking forward to the most moving into 2017.
Merry Christmas, and enjoy!
