    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) -

    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 ;)

    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

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

    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
