This week for Video Game Tuesday I’m going to cover my pick for top game of this year that I played. I didn’t get to play a bunch of new things, but of those I did I was pleased with one in particular. It’s my 2016 Game of the Year.

Forewarning: Just as a reminder this is of the various games that I played this year and that came out this year. I didn’t get to play many new things and all were on the PS4.

Runner-Up: No it’s not Destiny: Rise of Iron. It’s Klaus, a little indie platformer that was really fun to play and frankly had more story than any part of Destiny ever has had. It was fun and it was good looking to boot.

Game of the Year: Final Fantasy XV, I didn’t have a large pool to choose from, but of the ones I did Final Fantasy XV won most of the usual categories. Gameplay, Art, Music, were all top notch and frankly even though the story could’ve been better I didn’t play another one this year that made me cry, laugh and fume with rage as much as Final Fantasy XV. With more DLC on the way, with online multiplayer being added apparently, I’m hoping that Square will fix the story to make this a game that truly wins Game of the Year from me. If they can improve on it and make it better, Final Fantasy XV will prove to be a real classic game in the future.

That’s it for this week’s Video Game Tuesday!
