Life as a gamer was pretty good this year. We got a slough of great games over the course of the entire year. And I do mean over the entire year. From beginning to end, I was playing a new game that was pretty darn great all year long. My reflexes and patience were tested in Dark Souls III. I was introduced to a new world of unique characters and extremely competitive gameplay in Overwatch. I was allowed to rip and tear my way through the hordes of demons in DOOM.
Yeah, I'd say that this year was pretty good as a gamer. But, before we welcome 2017 with open arms, we need to take a look back at the best games of this year. Yes, folks, it's time to go over the top 11 games of 2016 as reviewed by GameSkinny. This list isn't so much a counting down of the best but more a collection of what we determined to be the best games of the year. So without further ado, let's get into the list!
