Top PS4 Games of 2016


2016 is finally over, and it was a remarkable year for PlayStation gamers. Alongside receiving some of the big exclusives we were promised for ages, amazing titles surfaced from both the AAA and indie scene. Today, I present my favourite PS4 games that were released over the past 12 months. Keep in mind, this list is subjective, meaning that it's based entirely on taste. Enough yapping, let's get to the games:


Hitman


As soon as it was announced that the new Hitman title would be released with an episodic structure, the Internet exploded with fans criticising the design choice. I was one of them. While I never publicly revealed my disapproval, I just didn't understand why they couldn't wait and release the entire game at once. However, the quality of the levels found in here proved that a game can succeed despite the time in-between releases. The game is a blast! Although the story is lacking, there is an impressive amount of detail and depth in each mission, which increases replayability.


Doom


The original First-Person-Shooter, the Doom franchise holds a very special place in every hardcore gamer's heart The demonic, almost unjustified violence found a broad audience, and people have been begging for a new game. Bethesda finally complied, and they truly nailed it!  I sincerely feared they would attempt to scale down the gore levels to appeal to a larger audience, but they didn't. A beautiful, satisfying trip to hell (that's a weird sentence), Doom is simply the best shooter I've played this year, thanks to its smooth mechanics and flawless performance.


Firewatch


As soon as Campo Santo's 'Firewatch' was released, opinions were quite varied. For the most part, you either sort of hated it or loved it. I belong to the latter group. An emotional, gorgeous, and unique walking simulator, Firewatch presented beautifully-crafted characters, realistic voice acting, an original setting, and a fascinating narrative that kept me hooked from beginning to end. Firewatch is a game about pain and joy. Loss and hope. Death and love. At its core, it's a game about life. One that I shall never forget.


Dishonored 2


Similarly to its predecessor, Dishonored 2 reminds gamers that the Stealth genre is alive and well. Once again, Arkane Studios manages to deliver a title that truly adapts to your playstyle, packed with crisp mechanics, a dual narrative, and a fascinating world that kept me engaged for hours on end.


Inside


A little over six years ago, Limbo was first released. An indie gem developed by PlayDead, it was a critical and commercial success. For the longest time, I was absolutely sure it would be the studio's best offering. But I was wrong. Inside not only met my high expectations, but it beautifully surpassed them. It doesn't reinvent the magic Limbo delivered. It rebuilds it, crafting an entirely new adventure with jaw-dropping presentation, smooth controls, and clever puzzles you must try. Also, it reclaim's PlayDead's spot as one of the most exciting developers in the world.


Uncharted 4: A Thief's End


For the longest time, I simply saw the Uncharted series as a fantastic trilogy of adventure games with breathtaking set-pieces. Thinking about it, they are considerably more complex. They're the quintessential form of escapism. Getting a break from our boring lives in order to lead Nathan Drake towards a treasure. With 'A Thief's End', Naughty Dog concludes one of video game's finest franchises with a contemporary masterpiece. From lifelike visuals and improved gameplay to incredible characters and impeccable dialogue, this experience desperately screams "MAGNUM OPUS". If you love video games, you're bound to adore 'A Thief's End'. An absolute must play.
