Another year has come to an end. Can’t shake the feeling that each and every next year lasts a little less and the previous one did. Looking back I can clearly see all the ups and downs it had in store for me. Sometimes it’s cool and sometimes not as much but sometimes, sometimes you just want to forget about all these things and just play a game for a while. When thinking about video games and 2016 all of my memories are at their greatest for 2016 was truly an amazing game for every gamer of a taste that similar to mine. Let’s look at the retrospective
Truth be told, I was a bit skeptical when it was first announced. Simply because of the fact that we barely had a proper chance to get ourselves introduced with the Civilization V and we already heard rumors about the upcoming successor. That had me for a moment and I thought it was going to be just a shameless cash grab that we’re unfortunately used to see nowadays in the gaming industry.
Boy oh boy, was I wrong. Civilization VI has to be the greatest game that I played during the past year and let me tell you, I’m not planning on not playing this game in any of the foreseeable future, that’s for sure. If turn-based civilization assembly with all of its aspects like politics, religion, military and types of social managements sound appealing to you, do yourself a favor and give this game go. However, if my opinion is not enough for you feel free to check Steam’s charts on most popular games. A picture is worth thousand words after all.
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine
While it is true that this is it 2015 game it’s downloadable content Blood and Wine came out in 2016. Despite it being a DLC it feels like a complete game on its own. CD Projekt deserved all of the respect to getting from their fans by making this game as polished as it is in by releasing such wonderful pieces of downloadable content for their customers to enjoy.
And what’s not to enjoy? Rather than putting the player in a war struck land, this downloadable content that is roughly twenty to thirty hours long (depending on your play style) takes you to a completely new area that looks like something out of a much more brighter fantasy game, at least at the first glance. Those of you familiar with the Witcher games know that they always managed to deliver in terms of quality and enjoyable gameplay but this time around it is so appealing that you just have togive the developers a credit for they work for making an adventure as memorable and enjoyable as this one was. Also, considering that this is probably the last time we get to play as the Geralt of Rivia, it was a damn fine way to say goodbye to the fans.
