The Top Four Fantasy Games of 2016

The end of 2015 is fast approaching and a new year is beginning, that means one thing: a new year of fantasy gaming. 2016 looks to be another great year with plenty new and highly anticipated RPGs and unfettered action RPGs. No matter what console you play the most, 2016 promises not to disappoint. The following are the top for fantasy games to play in 2016. There will be more unfolding throughout the remaining months of 2015, but these are the games that will get you through the long winter.

A New Kind of MMORPG: The Secret World


The Secret World online game is unlike any MMORPG you’ve played. In this fantasy title, you’re pitted against foes in a modern-day setting, and you have the “unparalleled freedom of character progression.” Although the setting is modern, it’s nothing like our current world. It’s the real world if every “myth, conspiracy theory, and urban legend was true.” And, you can be anyone and anything you want.

The Immersive and Expansive Fallout 4


While officially released during this calendar year, Fallout 4 is still considered a 2016 game (probably because it will take until then to fully explore the Commonwealth). Fallout 4 builds off the success and great gameplay of the previous titles. You’ve just escaped a vault and you’re on a mission to find your son, Shawn. The Commonwealth is incredibly detailed and expansive, so it’s a long time before parent and child are reunited.

Finally, a Final Fantasy 7 Remake


Final Fantasy 7, the popular game dating back to the 90s is being remade. PlayStation 4 will be the only platform on which this game will be available. Based on early details, this release will not disappoint. It will feature many of the same characters and storylines that have been prevalent throughout the franchise; however, the graphics, gameplay, and overall gaming experience will be greatly improved. Square Enix has said that they are planning to add a few surprises to the game rather than just simply updating the exact same title.



Doom is expected to be released some time in 2016, and will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The original Doom was a pioneer in terms of creating first-person fantasy shooter games. This game will continue to feature the same familiar gameplay, but will also include better graphics and highly improved gameplay compared to the original (which was pretty great considering its age). So if you enjoy intense first person combat games, that allow you to destroy a variety of monsters and demons, this is definitely the game for you.

Each year as technology becomes more and more advanced a new crop of games are released. 2016 will be no exception. 2016 will feature many great new games as well as remade or updated versions of the classic titles that got everything started. So get ready for some intense, high quality gaming sessions in the coming year.

These Simple Yet Addictive Games Will Keep You Entertained For Hours

There are so many video games out there in today’s market that are visually stunning and superbly complex. These games are often built around incredibly detailed environments and backed up with exceptional storylines and plots. However, for many modern and retro gamers alike, there’s something very comforting about playing a game that oozes unpretentiousness and simplicity. We’ve searched the internet high and low to uncover 4 such games but be warned, they’re highly addictive!

Mario Kart


There is a reason that there just so happens to be a version of’ Mario Kart’ available on pretty much every single console and gadget that Nintendo has ever released. This incredibly addictive little racer classic reflects Nintendo at its best; fun for all the family and simple enough for anyone and everyone to pick up. From the basics of Luigi Circuit to the frustrating difficulty of Rainbow Road, this is a game that has kept generations entertained for many, many years.



This classic Russian pastime is one of the simplest games ever created and for more than 30 years it has gripped many players around the world. Tetris is a tile-based puzzler than requires you to shift and drop various shapes into place in order to eliminate lines before you get overrun with the shapes and the construction mounts too high. What makes this game even better is its ability to be played on a diverse number of platforms ranging from consoles to smart watches and everything in between.



Whilst Tetris wet the appetite for building block games, modern-day construction amusement Minecraft has raised the stakes even further. The brain child of Swedish programmer Markus Persson, Minecraft was originally only developed as a sandbox game but grew in popularity and now exists across most major gaming platforms. Ask any fan and it’s much more than simply building structures using 3D blocks, it’s a chance to immerse yourself into a captivating world of mining, exploring and even combat.



Picture bingo and many people often visualize a game unfolding at a social club or church but you might be surprised to learn that actually bingo is quickly becoming one of the most popular mobile games in the country. Owing to the emergence and penetration of the smartphone, and the corresponding improvements in mobile gaming, there are now more variants of this classic number title and more new bingo sites in 2015 than ever before. Most apps allow you to play for free and in some versions cash prizes are up for grabs.

The Best Superhero Video Games of All Time

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes


These creative little plastic bricks have certainly had quite the comeback in recent years. Now they spawn popular video games and even number one box office movies. One such gaming effort from the LEGO realm is ‘LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes’. The action-adventure game was praised very highly by gamers and critics alike and takes place in an open world environment. The game allows you to play as the caped crusader as well as other popular DC Comic characters. There have been many Batman-based games released such as the the Dark Knight Rises slot game, and LEGO Batman 2 is definitely amongst the very best.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance


Theatrically the Marvel universe has swarmed cinemas over the last few years with a constant flow of Marvel-based releases. And with each release comes the opportunity for a video game spin-off. However in ‘Marvel: Ultimate Alliance’ a whole host of famous faces come together to give us one heck of a showdown. The game features over 140 Marvel comic book characters and allows players to pick a team of 4 offering total team customisation. Players can also control the fate of the Marvel universe with the decisions they make.

Batman: Arkham City


The Batman makes it on to our list once more with the incomparable sequel to 2009’s thrilling ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’. Arkham City from Rocksteady Studios picked up a number of awards for its gameplay, music and action all brilliantly honed to give players a real intense gaming experience. In this all new storyline more Gotham-based characters come out of the woodwork for the Dark Knight to tackle. The incredible FreeFlow combat aspect as well as the typically atmospheric environments and characterisations help make this stand out above the rest.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction


Ultimate Destruction is an often overlooked superhero classic that was perfect for those wishing to cause a bit of virtual mayhem. In this open world environment the green Hulk was able to break away from his particular missions, if the player so wished, and was able to go off and quite literally smash things to smithereens. You could even break things in order to then use the leftover pieces to batter your enemies long the way. The storyline is engaging enough but it’s the freedom of rage and destruction that makes this effort stand out, and is the perfect solution for letting off a little steam.
