1. Overwatch

If you're going to be the best game of the year, you've got to bring a lot to the table. Sure, some games tell the best story. Others offer the most fun. Still, others mess up all of those other aspects but still manage to stick in your mind weeks after the credits have rolled.

What's interesting about this year's top game is that it didn't really do most of those other things that typically makes a game stand out from the pack.

Blizzard has a knack for taking a known quantity and polishing it until it's better than ever. That's exactly what they did with Overwatch, offering up a class-based shooter that's pinpoint accurate, bright and lovely to look at and a heck of a lot of fun to play. It might not have a compelling story or a revolutionary new mechanic to brag about, but what it did manage to do is win over folks from all over the gaming community, becoming something of a phenomenon in the process.

We appreciate that some folks were hoping for a deeper experience, but we feel comfortable in saying that the insane number of people playing the game daily are plenty happy with exactly what is on offer. Plus, again, this is Blizzard we're talking about. Overwatch is only going to get better and better, and that's saying something considering just how good it already is.
