For #2 this year, we have what is considered to be the last game in this series, but what a way to go out on.

#2 Dark Souls 3

The Souls series has risen to become a favorite of mine. Even with the problems I had with Dark Souls 2 it was still one of the best games to come out that year. With 3, the developers took what they learned from Bloodborne and fixed the mistakes of 2.

Dark Souls 3 boasts everything that we enjoyed about the series: Great combat, unique environments and amazing boss fights. The new weapon art feature that gives each weapon a special ability helped to flesh out combat more. The combat system continues to be one of the best areas of Soulsborne; focusing on player skill and letting the RPG side supplement it.

As with the previous games, Dark Souls 3 was a challenging affair; with noticeable standout fights for me being the Unnamed King and Champion Gundyr battles. There is going to be a bigger post that looks into Bloodborne vs. Dark Souls 3 in 2017, so I’m saving a lot of my thoughts for that.

Everything about Dark Souls 3 was on point; lending credence to this being From Software’s way of going out with a bang. Again, there is so much to talk about with Dark Souls 3 that I would just be repeating myself from bringing up Dark Souls 1 and 2.

And finally, we come to #1 of my best of list. I’m not giving any hints for this one, as fans should already know what it is at this point.
