This may come as a surprise, but the people who make video games? They play and like them as much as us regular ol' non-developers.
Hmm, need to put Inside on my wishlist......many developers seem to love the game.
great game with a great narrative, best Indy of 2016
One of the best games of 2016 period I'd say, regardless of Indy status.
I bought Inside and The Witness both on sale on PSN. Playthrough the witness and Platinum'd it and loved it. I am now 1/3 through Inside and love that too.. every area is fresh and unique and this has the best depth and environmental creativity of any side-scrolling game ever. I would love them to make a metroidvania game in the future. Inside is Limbo 2.0 and after two great 2.5D Puzzle Platformers, Playdead is definitely capable to go AAA.
Game of the Year in my opinion. You won't regret it.
Now I have another list of games to grab! Oh 2016, the one thing that didn't disappoint is the plethora of amazing games!
Cool stuff, nice to see how different developers think and appreciate games. I guess I also need to ut Inside on my to-play list
Lots of votes for Overwatch. Well deserved. Excellent title
Why are you getting disagrees for such a simple opinion? Your disagrees must be number of PS fans, that wish it was you instead of Paul Walker.
Lmao. Yup exactly. Their pettiness knows no bounds.
inside was so much fun. i love the submarine levels.
I got Firewatch yesterday, and finished it. I like it. It was interesting, and well thought out.
I like it, but I don't think it stuck the landing. So much suspense and then the end just underwhelmed
I thought the ending was fine. It also fitted in with theme of isolation and escapism. I also think the ending alligned itself better to the story than any alternative could have.
Madden Developer top game of 2016 is...Madden
I played inside great puzzle platforming, ambient sounds,awesome art/visual design. BUT seriously did it have any story cause I couldn't comprehend anything other than **SPOILER I guess** that some boy gets involved with secret research org and in the end turns into some kind of blob and dies.how does that qualify as great naarative?
I completely agree with you. I read alot of people saying it had great narrative/story.. but I didn't get that from it at all.. Like was there even really a story? I think the story or narrative is kinda left open for interpretation.. which almost makes it better in its own unique way... but to say it had a great narrative just doesn't make sense to me lol. Overall a really cool game though. One of my favorites so far this gen.
Great article and insight into what the devs enjoyed in 2016....thank you for that!
My personal favorites from this year are Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, COD Infinite Warfare, Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4, Gears of War 4 and Quantum Break. Biggest letdown was easily Uncharted 4 in retrospect. I had much more fun with Gears, Quantum and TR. The tech was impressive for sure but I hated the pacing and story was average compared with the others. Also not nearly enough action. Overall, it was a great year with so many great releases for all genres.
