The 12 Best Video Games Of 2016

First, we spent a year playing video games. Then we spent a couple of weeks debating which ones were best. Here, in alphabetical order, are Kotaku‘s top 12 games of 2016.


Civilisation VI

Darkest Dungeon

Dishonored 2


Dragon Quest Builders




Pokémon Sun and Moon

Stardew Valley

The Witness


  • Love Darkest Dungeon & Dragon Quest Builders, probably the two biggest surprises for me last year. Every game on this list is great though.

  • Oh man I just finished Inside a couple days ago and it was one of the most captivating games I’ve ever played.

    12 bucks for 4 hours of mind-fuckery? Bliss.

  • I wanted to get or at least try Dragon Breath Builders but for the prices I saw it just didn’t seem worth it. Maybe when it is cheaper.

    • Dude, if you’re into RPG’s it is totally worth it. Definitely not the minecraft clone it seems like 🙂

  • What a list! Every game on there deserves so much praise. Not shocking to see boxboxboy though, given Jason’s love of it ;P

  • Darkest Dungeon has that look where if Mike Mignola had been the illustrator and the character proporions weren’t so irksome, I’d be all over it.
