The Top 20 Games of 2016 So Far…

12 – Battleborn (PS4, X1, PC)

Summary: Co-op and competitive shooter that has a host of characters with unique abilities.


Take the aesthetics of Borderlands, mix in MOBA elements with some FPS team-based shooting and a few gags, and you’re left with Battleborn. The MOBA influence is the most prevalent with the array of characters to choose from, each with unique powers that recharge after use. If you’re in the mood for a fresh first-person arena style shooter, look no further, but keep in mind Battleborn is definitely best played with friends.

11 – Ratchet & Clank (PS4)

Summary: Our favorite lombax and his mechanical companion return with a complete re-envisioning of the universe.


Back in 2002, Ratchet & Clank attempted to embody the feeling of a Pixar movie with its animated worlds, expressive characters, and clever (sometimes adult) humor, and for its time it was done effectively. Fast forward to 2016 and they return bigger, better and funnier than ever. Insomniac, well known for their wacky, over-the-top weapons in games like Resistance and Sunset Overdrive, continue this trend with Ratchet & Clank.There’s a ton of fun to be had with interesting ways to cause chaos including the Morph-O-Ray, Decoy Glove, and the Boom Ball Gun.

9 – Unravel (PS4, X1, PC)

Summary: Cute and clever platformer that knows how to throw down some great physics based puzzles.


Unravel is a game that relies on the environment way more than your lovable character “Yarny”. The charm of Unravel is undeniable and it’s easy to succumb to the visceral feeling of joy when you step into the vibrant world. If you’re in the mood to kill off 10 or so hours with an adventure puzzle game that will make you go “awww” Unravel is a must buy.
