Top 10 PC Games of 2016 (First Half)

Top 10 PC Games Of 2016: Total War: Warhammer Total War: Warhammer Developer: Creative Assembly Publisher: Sega Release Date: 24 May 2016

Two franchises combined making a great game out of both worlds. The high-fantasy strategy created will be hinting on you that Total War was actually supposed to be this way. You can expect huge content, unique gameplay features and a great user interface. You definitely won’t want to go back to the traditional real-world battles soon.

Top 10 PC Games Of 2016: XCOM 2 XCOM 2 Developer: Firaxis Games Publisher: 2K Games Release Date: 5 February 2016

The king of strategy has made a return. This time, it is set in a world where aliens rule and humanity is in danger of being extinct. Presenting you with stunning graphics, great new features and abilities, exciting tactical combat and procedurally generated maps. This is definitely a worthy successor to the original. Do make sure to take the time to understand the game’s new mechanics.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: Darkest Dungeon Darkest Dungeon Developer: Red Hook Studios Publisher: Red Hook Studios Release Date: 19 January 2016

The first rule is not to get attached to your character. This game is quite unique because your characters are designed to die. This game is a roguelike turn-based dungeon crawler. The difficulty is addicting, the art is fascinating and there is a strange focus on the psychological stress when going on adventures. The game will push you to the edge and will pull you back in again which is strangely addicting.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: DOOM DOOM Developer: id Software Publisher: Bethesda Softworks Release Date: 13 May 2016

From the fierce, old-school, high-speed shooter emerges a franchise that will blow your mind, with its upgraded graphics and a whole lot more. The next-gen Doom is a force to be reckoned with. Although the games multiplayer was a bit boring for some, the single player campaign does make up for it big time. Id Software’s Doom is an FPS that we need and have been waiting for.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: The Banner Saga 2 The Banner Saga 2 Developer: Stoic Studio Publisher: Versus Evil Release Date: 19 April 2016

The Banner Saga 1 was greatly received, which leaves Stoic with the huge challenge to create an even better follow up. If you enjoy games that are painfully difficult with crazy random events, well this is the game for you! Make sure that box of kleenex at arm’s length.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: Rise of the Tomb Raider Rise of the Tomb Raider Developer: Crystal Dynamics Publisher: Square Enix Release Date: 28 January 2016

Get a more immersive experience with stunning graphical improvements for the newest Lara Croft adventure. You just have to make sure that your PC rigs can run it. No reinventing done by Crystal Dynamics here, they are sticking to their guns with the same formula that has made the 2013 reboot a huge success. And we are actually okay with that.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: Grim Dawn Grim Dawn Developer: Crate Entertainment Publisher: Crate Entertainment Release Date: 25 February 2016

From the veteran team that gave us Titan Quest, is another ARPG that fans will surely love. Enjoy a wide variety of monsters, an enormous amount of loot, insanely fun hack-and-slash. This is all the elements that ARPG fans had been playing since way back…Grim Dawn is all this plus so much more.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: Stardew Valley Stardew Valley Developer: ConcernedApe Publisher: Chucklefish Games Release Date: 26 February 2016

This is not a Harvest Moon clone but this is THE Harvest Moon clone plus more.

Top 10 PC Games of 2016: Dark Souls III Dark Souls III Developer: FromSoftware Publisher: Namco Bandai Entertainment Release Date: 12 April 2016

The final installment of the series, Dark Souls 3 plays like it has been made for all die hard fans of Dark Souls.
