This year Rex decided to be different and call his list the “Favorite Games of 2016”, but honestly, there are 10 games here and some honorable mentions. Why isn’t it a “Top 10 Games of 2016” list like everyone else? I’ll never know. But what I do know, is that Rex has played a healthy amount of games this year, and distilling those games to get these results onto this list couldn’t have been easy.
Watch Dogs was an interesting new IP that came out in 2014. It took the Assassin’s Creed molded Ubisoft open-world formula, and set it in a modern day world with hacking as your tool in place of a hidden blade. It wasn’t perfect, the characters kind of sucked, but I enjoyed it.
