Top 25 video games coming in 2016

Darkest Dungeon

Release Date: January 19th, 2016

Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux

Darkest Dungeon has been one of the most promising and talked about video games to be part of the Steam Early Access Program. It is a dungeon crawler roguelike where the player inherits an old gothic mansion. The dungeons below have become infested with monsters and evil coming from within portals there. The player must close the portals and cleanse the dungeons of monsters before they take control of the mansion.

To do this, the player must roster adventurers and heroes. On their adventures into the depths of these dungeons, the monsters, traps and horrors within begin to affect their minds. It affects the party members having psychological afflictions such as paranoia, fear or abusive behavior. Such afflictions each lead to various problems making it harder to survive.

It is an interesting twist on the standard dungeon crawler roguelike style. It has a beautiful art style, disturbing enemies, great ideas and has showed promise throughout its entire time in Early Access. If you like hardcore RPGs or looking for a dungeon crawler with a difference, Darkest Dungeon might just be for you.

Darkest Dungeon's release for PS4 and PS Vita is Q2 2016.
