Agree with most everything. No Man's Sky was worth the money for me personally. Final Fantasy XV was a surprise hit. I really wasn't expecting much. I would add Watch Dogs 2 to the Best myself. Love that game.
Jokes aside, that was one of my absolute favourite games of the year (kinda obvious tho). I also really like NMS. Found this planet a while back:
I need to get around to playing Doom though. I still need to finish Blood and Wine, and then i need to play Far harbour! Then maybe i'll get Doom done :snicker
I've heard the Doom soundtrack though! Sounds damn impressive!
My best game this year was probably Ratchet & Clank, never played the original so this 'reboot' or 'reimagining' was new to me, loved the game! Honestly thought Uncharted 4 would get it for me, the game was great overall but didn't quite get that perfect from me, could even be something as trivial as them updating the theme music but I didn't quite get that same attachment.
Best VR game was EVE Valkyrie. Fairly short single player but come on, flying a space fighter in VR!!!!! What's not to like?
Most disappointed with Dishonored 2. The first didn't really hit the spot for me and I was hoping the second would from the positive reviews, but it was just more of the same. Maybe expectations were too high with this one.
On the VR side the most disappointing was Driveclub VR. I LOVE Driveclub as a game and I couldn't fault the immersion of the whole driving in VR thing, but the PS2 era graphics were a let down.
I still need to play a bunch of the heavy hitters from this year, so I can't really make a list yet.

I personally like to have two different games to currently play at a time, one being more of an in-depth, slower paced game (like an RPG) and the other being more of a fast-paced, immediate experience. Then I just pick whichever I'm in the mood for.
So that being said, I think rotating between Witcher 3 and DOOM would be a real hoot!
Single Player: Doom
Multiplayer: Battlefield 1
Worthy of Mention: The Last Guardian
All the other big games in 2016 were fun and awesome but these stood out as the biggest breathes of fresh air. Most of us knew UC4 and Rise of the TR were going to be good. Naughty Dog always comes through and Rise of the TR had been out for a year on XB1 already so we knew what to expect.
FF XV I haven't played yet so it wasn't up for my consideration.
COD MW Remastered multiplayer is just as fun, if not better than it was on PS3.
Bioshock Collection was my favorite HD remaster this year.
No Man's Sky didn't wow me nor let me down completely. I knew what I was buying when I got it and I'm happy that they're still patching and updating the game. I wasn't one of the folks who freaked out and got their money back. I've enjoyed many hours of NMS but it's certainly no GOTY.
It's not a 2016 title but I'm also impressed with the continued support for GTA V online. They're always adding new content, events, vehicles, etc...and the recent in-game snow which only happens this time of year is pretty cool. I had a blast playing GTA V online over Xmas break after having not played it in months. There's so much to do between the single player and multiplayer that it's still one of the best value games for PS4.
Favorite games of 2016
Final Fantasy XV
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Dark Souls 3
The Bioshock Collection
Most disappointing games of 2016 Homefront: The Revolution
No Man's Sky
Doom (yes this one didn't do it for me. Lacked a good story and was repetitive as all hell. Doom 3 blows this game away)
My favorite game for 2016 is Dark Souls 3, i cant say about worst for game like Tomb Raider, Mirror's Edge, Uncharted 4, Call Of Duty etc because are not my type. If i had to choose some would be No Man's Sky and The Division.
[QUOTE="Ixion, post: 6524958]Do you like Doom 1 and 2?[/QUOTE]
Doom 3 is a pretty awesome game but I think most who enjoy 1 and 2 (such as myself) are the ones who grew up with them when they originally came out. I also played Wolfenstein, Duke Nuke 'Em 3D, and Myst back in those days but always came back to Doom.
For me the new Doom really captures the best of all of them and rolls it into one big joint for us to smoke so to speak.
Wolf 3D is objectively not better than any of the Doom games.
Duke 3D can be said to be better than Doom 1 and 2 due to the interaction with the worlds and voice overs.
I played a heck of a lot more Duke 3D multi than DOOM multi with my friends. Tier drops is an excellent map.
