Best PC Games 2016 Summary

2016 in PC gaming has been a great year so far and several more good games are due to be released. While there has not been as many huge triple-A games released as in other years, there have still been some huge hitters that were a lot of fun. Today we are looking at what we consider to be the best PC games of 2016!


As you would expect first-person shooters played a huge part in PC gaming in 2016. Call of Duty kept things futuristic with Infinite Warfare and included a new version of Modern Warfare with the special edition! Battlefield looked to the past for its inspiration with Battlefield 1 being set during World War 1 and being regarded as the best Battlefield game in years. Titanfall 2 is a game that many people were looking forward to. The first Titanfall was a fun game and with all the bells and whistles that have been added, Titanfall 2 certainly stands out from the other shooters.


Two of the biggest first-person shooters were something old and something new. First, we have the reboot of Doom which was just fantastic. It took many of the things that made gamers fall in love with the original Doom and put enough new things into it to make it well worth a spot on this best PC games of 2016 list. Another huge game was Overwatch from Blizzard. Overwatch was a huge, huge game and Blizzard has another massive hit on their hands here. Overwatch is just so much fun to play and no matter what your skill level with first-person shooters is, you will be in for a great time.


There was also some fantastic third-person games released as well. One of the biggest PC games in 2016 was Gears of War 4, which was the start of a whole new series in the Gears franchise. One of the coolest things about Gears of War 4 was how if you bought it on PC, you could also play it on Xbox One and vice versa. Another great third-person game was Mafia III which is a game that had a fantastic and hard hitting story.


There was also some great PC exclusive games in 2016. First of all, we have Civilization VI which added many new things to the series, many of which gamers felt were for the best and did a good job in rejuvenating the series. There was also World of Warcraft: Legion. This was a fantastic entry to the series and it did seem to peak people’s interest again in World of Warcraft. Many gamers felt that Legion served as a great entry point for a new person looking to get into the World of Warcraft series. While not a full on PC exclusive, XCOM 2 was a timed exclusive on PC. This is an awesome tactical/shooter game where you need to stop aliens taking over the world!


Of course one of the biggest gaming stories of 2016 is one of the most disappointing PC games of 2016 and that is No Mans Sky. This was a game that promised so much, but ultimately left many gamers feeling disappointed. Although some did still have a lot of fun with No Mans Sky. There was many that feel the game did not live up to what was promised.


Our best PC games 2016 list has some truly incredible games on it and we are sure that many of you will have had a great time taking some of these games on. We feel that PC gaming in 2016 was a year that was dominated by action games, but we do not think that is a bad thing at all.
