It was a weird year for games. While there were a lot of cool surprises throughout the year, there were also a lot of high profile disappointments. Games like The Division, No Man’s Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, and Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 all failed to hit the mark with me. But those that did hit, hit hard. Here are the bottom 13 of my top 26 favorite games of 2016.
26. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia
25. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – The campaign is fun, the multiplayer sucks
24. Mafia III
23. The Witness – I’ve played so little of this but what I have has been cool, hence this placement here
22. Madden NFL 17
21. Quantum Break
19. NHL 17
18. Ratchet & Clank
17. Forza Horizon 3
16. Dying Light: The Following
15. Rocket League (on XB1)
14. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
