Battlefield 1 (PC)
2016 was a year where your common military shooter was kind of turned on it's head. Battlefield 1 definitely fits in this category. As someone who misses the days when Call of Duty was exploring battles of old wars, Battlefield 1 was a breath of fresh air.
While the combat is much more fast paced and aligned with what people are used to in a modern military shooter, Battlefield 1 brings back the historical aspect of a military shooter that I definitely missed. And bringing the Battlefield formula to World War I just makes sense.
"Battlefield 1 is a true successor of the Battlefield series and one of the best games of the year. Bringing the experience of a hundred year old war is not an easy task, but DICE made it work. However, the game is not perfect and will not receive the highest possible score due to some bad enemy AI and less than stellar design on some of the maps.
On the other hand, Battlefield 1 has given us all an opportunity to dive into one of the most brutal wars in the history of humanity -- and this is something you don’t try every day."
