The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Is it too early to discuss this, or is the time just right?

There's a few games which are coming up very soon, such as Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian. They might change on people's lists, which is fine! But how about we start thinking about what our favourite games this year might be? I reckon we should try and finalize our lists by late December.

Let's categorize them into the following, if you've played these genres. If you haven't played any of the particular genre or can't think of a suitable answer, don't worry about it. Copy and paste the list below and throw down your entries.

1. Best first person shooter -

2. Best multiplayer -

3. Best action/adventure -

4. Best platformer -

5. Best fighting -

6. Best racing/driving -

7. Best RPG -

8. 12. Best VR -

9. Best graphics -

10. Best soundtrack -

11. Best story/narrative -

12. Best performance (voice acting) -

13. Best DLC -

14. Best Handheld -

15. GAME OF THE YEAR 2016 -

16. WORST GAME OF 2016 -

17. Most disappointing (it could have still been good, but the hype train made it suck for you) -

4. Best platformer - Salt & Sanctuary.

5. Best fighting - Nil, I didn't play any fighting games this year.

6. Best racing/driving - Nil, didn't play any racing/driving games this year.

7. Best RPG - Dark Souls III (could possibly be Final Fantasy XV, we'll see).

8. 12. Best VR - Sadly, I didn't get to play any VR games this year, so nil.

9. Best graphics - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

10. Best soundtrack - Dark Souls III.

11. Best story/narrative - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, followed closely by Life Is Strange.

13. Best DLC - The Witcher III: Wild Hunt's Blood and Wine, followed closely by Dying Light: The Following.

14. Best Handheld - Didn't play any hand held games this year (seriously), so nil.

15. GAME OF THE YEAR 2016 - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

16. WORST GAME OF 2016 - No Man's Sky.

17. Most disappointing - No Man's Sky, followed closely by Mirror's Edge: Catalyst and Dex.

1. Best first person shooter - xxx

2. Best multiplayer - TBC

3. Best action/adventure - TBC

4. Best platformer - Inside:
Limbo but with a bit of colour, but with sadly a bit less challenge also.
It got really fucking weird at the end too!

5. Best fighting - Furi:
Absolutely loved this game. Nothing but pure boss fight after boss fight,
which is why I've place dit in this category. Trial and error in order to
learn your foes' moves. Some hate it, some love it - I'm the latter!

6. Best racing/driving - xxx

7. Best RPG - Final Fantasy XV at the moment.

8. Best VR - I've only played Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes...but
that was released 2015 so I dont know haha!

9. Best graphics - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
Really nice to look at, even put me off during action sequences...
that's my excuse when I die anyway Wink

10. Best soundtrack - Final Fantasy XV - easily. So good!

11. Best story/narrative - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
Great story, love the whole secret political stuff sometimes,
and Deus Ex tells it really well. It did fall shy in a few occasions,
but I'll still give it this title.

12. Best performance (voice acting) - Firewatch:
Yeah, even though it has a dissapointing ending, the voice acting in this
is sublime, I get so hooked to the characters and the voice acting is
certainly a large contributor.

13. Best DLC - xxx

14. Best Handheld - xxx

15. GAME OF THE YEAR 2016 - TBC

16. WORST GAME OF 2016 - TBC

17. Most disappointing - TBC

I think the only new games I played this year were Stellaris, XCOM 2, and Overwatch. So I dunno how I'll fill this out.

That's right, I DID play Uncharted 4. So I guess it wins all categories for me. Smile

Im going to limit this just to games I played instead of projecting or predicting based on reviews and videos. I have a bunch of GOTY contender games installed and waiting on my consoles and I just haven't had the time to play them or I've been waiting for the right moment and now the year is over and I haven't played them! Oops! It also turns out that this year I've mostly played a lot of games that came out pre-2016, so this may be especially difficult to fill out.

1. Best first person shooter - Titanfall 2

2. Best multiplayer - Overcooked

3. Best action/adventure - Overcooked

4. Best platformer -

5. Best fighting - none

6. Best racing/driving - Forza Horizon 3

7. Best RPG -

8. Best VR - none

9. Best graphics - Forza Horizon 3

10. Best soundtrack - Forza Horizon 3

11. Best story/narrative - Batman: The Telltale Series

12. Best performance (voice acting) - the ridiculous cast of Gears of War 4

13. Best DLC - Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo

14. Best Handheld - SteamWorld Heist

15. GAME OF THE YEAR 2016 - Titanfall 2

16. WORST GAME OF 2016 -

17. Most disappointing - Fire Emblem Fates
