A Promising 2016

2016 looks to be the best year for videogames yet. Never before so many quality projects are supposed to come out. Since a picture is worth a thousand words and as with every form of art the best way to enjoy is to know as little about it as possible, here are just some screenshots for each game worth mentioning that is being released this year.

  1. It’s so refreshing to see a website like yours. Without advertisement, concentrating on just quality stuff, leaving all the bad baggage behind. Even other good sites that report about interesting indies for example, usually still have some crap in there as well. Here everything is just good stuff. Keep it up!

  3. Thanks Andrea, that’s actually what I was going for, so much appreciated :) As you said, there are some great sites (which I get a lot of inspirations from) like http://screenshotdaily.com or http://killscreendaily.com
    But even those usually just operate in “their” bubble – meaning, either just indies (and then all of them, not just the good ones) or in other cases just blockbusters or whatever.
    I will keep presenting just the highest quality stuff (to me) no matter the genre or size.
    Pretty awesome stop for amazing game art by the way: http://deadendthrills.com

  5. What do you think about VR?

  7. I don’t really care because A) it still will take years until it will be a “real” thing (good games, in the mainstream and so on) and B) it feels just like a “half step” (without real movement etc)
