I’ve played 7 of the games on the calendar: Darkest Dungeon, Dishonored 2, Doom, Hitman, Overwatch, XCOM2, Thumper.
9 I found interesting but haven’t played: Titanfall 2, Firewatch, Duskers, Owlboy, The division, Civ6, The Witness, Sorcery, DX Mankind divided.
The rest I don’t really care for or have entirely flew under my radar. I wouldn’t say any of those, except maybe dishonored 2, would feature on my game of the year list at all. Wait, was dark souls 3 not on their list at all? Would’ve expected that one, it was quite fun.
If I had to add to the list, I’d have shoved Shadow Tactics: Blades of the shogun onto it, despite deducting points for my least favourite videogame name of the year, and undoubtedly, more than any other game this year, I’ve played more Total Warhammer than any of them. Overwatch is a great game, but its reliance on humanity ended up ruining it for me, because it’s no fun to play with the available species on offer, so it’s a game which I think is absolutely fantastic but wouldn’t be goty for me regardless.
