The Platinum Diaries | Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Why This Game?

I would be lying if I didn’t say that this one wasn’t per­sonal. Res­i­dent Evil is one of my favorite series and I can con­fi­dently say that this lat­est entry is one of the best yet. Res­i­dent Evil 7: Bio­haz­ard being a rel­a­tively short game over­all also con­tributed to my drive to make this my first plat­inum tro­phy of the series, though it being an immensely fun game didn’t hurt. Look­ing at the ini­tial tro­phy list, it didn’t seem like too much of a tough one to tackle, but like any plat­inum, there are a few obsta­cles that are easy to under­es­ti­mate when you’re sim­ply star­ing at a list. That being said, let’s break this one down.

GOTY 2016 | Number 2 — Doom

The one PC game that has always held a spe­cial place in my heart is Doom. After such a lengthy devel­op­ment cycle, I was on the fence about get­ting it at all. In the end, id Soft­ware made it worth the wait and the new Doom is a phe­nom­e­nal game. Chan­nel­ing just about every­thing that made the orig­i­nal Doom games great, it updates the for­mula per­fectly and brings a clas­sic game into a new gen­er­a­tion just as well as the likes of Oca­rina of Time. Frankly, it was all out war between Doom and my num­ber one game, with the decid­ing fac­tor being that I got side-tracked and haven’t fin­ished the entire Doom cam­paign. Even still, this game well deserves as high a spot as it got on my list.

GOTY 2016 | Number 8 — Overwatch

An out­side observer might have expected Over­watch to be sig­nif­i­cantly higher on my game of the year list. The actual truth is that this game exist­ing on my list at all is a tes­ta­ment to how well it does its job. I can count on one hand the num­ber of multiplayer-focused games I’ve got­ten into over the years. Bliz­zard takes any con­cept they work on and pol­ish it to a high sheen and Over­watch is no excep­tion. Not only are the char­ac­ters tons of fun to see and play with, but the whole game feels a lot more friendly and inclu­sive than oth­ers of its kind. It’s easy to get into, dif­fi­cult to mas­ter and cel­e­brates all of the play­ers with­out putting any­one down in the process.

GOTY 2016 | Number 10 — Superhot

One of the first games I ever backed on Kick­starter, Super­hot was def­i­nitely one of the hottest games of 2016 for me. I was sold based on the premise alone, eas­ily spot­ting an awe­some game­play mechanic from its ear­li­est stages. Other games on this list have a clear edge with time spent play­ing, but the state­ment that Super­hot is able to make in the short time it takes to com­plete makes it well worth rec­og­niz­ing. Com­ing up with a truly orig­i­nal idea in a sea of remakes and sequels, Super­hot shines in almost every cat­e­gory and is a true crowd-funding suc­cess story.
