The year of 2015 was met with some head-turning announcements like Horizon Zero Dawn, Kingdom Hearts III and the confirmation of a Season 2 of Life Is Strange. And with all of these announcements in 2015, we are met with promises of an incredible year of gaming for 2016. Not only have we cherished our roots with enticing reboots like Ratchet and Clank, but we’ve advanced toward the future of gaming with exceptional VR gameplay in games like Adrift. As we wave goodbye to 2015, we brace ourselves for the best year in gaming yet. These are my top 10 picks for the games I am looking forward to most in 2016.

10. No Man’s Sky
This game has topped many anticipated for 2016 lists, I’m sure. It’s a truly ambitious title with a huge universe to explore. There’s so much you can do, like flying through space to travel to different worlds, fighting off enemy alien beings, and exploring to your heart’s content. Right now, it’s only exclusive to PC and PS4, but it’s being pushed for VRVR and Xbox One because, well, everyone wants to get a taste. If I had to choose any one game on my list that would do well as a VR game, it would be this one. I’m not even that big of a fan of VR. You get me into a VR headset rolling through space in Adrift and I’ll pass out. But if it’s something like this where the world is immersive and alien, (and space travel isn’t spinning endless into an abyss) then sign me up. Hello Games is shooting for a June 2016 release date, but there’s always delays with a game as massive as this.
