5 Best PC Games To Play In 2016
As we are more than half way through 2016 already and some of the best games are sure yet to come, here’s the list of 5 PC games which are so far the best of the year.
The new DOOM has returned after 12 years and it’s a reboot for the series. Bethesda has crafted the game so well that it can easily compete with hit games like the Call of Duty and Battlefield. The new series has a single player aspect and it wouldn’t disappoint you by its online multiplayer component. DOOM is played from a first-person perspective. The player has to play the role of an unknown marine and battles demonic forces from Hell that have been released by the Aerospace Corporation on a future-set occupied planet Mars. Instead of a slower survival horror approach taken in Doom 3, this one has a much faster pace with more open-ended levels much like the first two games.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
It is a near-perfect combination of our three ideal childhood attachments – video games, comic books and of course Lego. Immersed in Marvel Comics wholeness, the game has put the players in the role of superheroes which also includes the Avengers, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. The players will be given tasks to recover all the powerful Cosmic Bricks before the highest level of crooks such as Magneto, Loki, Dr. Doom get their hands on them. The game also features a fun brick-bashing action and puzzles.
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die
The story revolves around detective David Young, a widower who is possessed with exhuming the actions that had led to the death of his wife, Little Peggy. The game with its supernatural elements and a gripping exploratory nature is one that should not be missed. D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is an episodic game originally published by Microsoft Studios and developed by Access Games and is not related to the D video game series.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
Players can take control of the protagonist Faith Connors as she tries to overthrow a totalitarian parent of corporations who rules the city of glass. Players could make use of environmental objects like zip-lines and ledges to move as quickly as possible and make their way from building to building. The game has received positive reviews for its free-running and gameplay and visuals.
Alien: Isolation is indeed one of the best Alien-based games ever. It focuses mainly on subterfuge and evasion. You will also be getting help via radio in order to navigate a world of survival horror. As you move ahead, you would be stalked by aliens whom you have to dodge by using your wits and the tools which you craft. Creative Assembly has taken inspiration from Ridley Scott’s original 1979 film and has totally paid it off. The game is dark, oppressive and smart in all the right ways.
