Nominees for Destructoid's Best 3DS Game of 2016

Big budget console role-playing games can take forever to release and be huge events; take Final Fantasy XV's ten-year development as an example. But on the humble 3DS, great RPGs show up every few months. Of our nine favorite 3DS game...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2016

In the best of times, "quality over quantity" has been the way of the Wii U. If you bought into the system knowing that you'd more than likely end up playing Nintendo-backed games and not a whole lot else, this isn't your first rodeo. That ...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2016

Look, we all know video games are great, but you can't bring your cutting edge gaming PC or your Xbox Steel Battalion controller with you everywhere you go. Or maybe you can, but you probably shouldn't. It's bad for your back. Thankfully, t...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best VR Game of 2016

Modern VR is in its infancy, but three big publishers came out of the gate swinging this year. Oculus, Valve, and Sony are all vying for your attention (and by proxy, an entire paycheck to pay for the tech), and in that confrontation, some ...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2016

When it comes time to pick Game of the Year, there's one thing and just one thing that you look for: Quality. If it's good, like cream-of-the-crop good, it belongs in the conversation. Brevity is not a strong suit of this year's PC list. Th...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2016

In 2015, Microsoft's sales pitch heading into the holiday season was "The greatest games lineup in Xbox history." It felt sort of hollow at the time, like those games were okay but that the best was still around the corner. As it turns out,...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2016

This time of year, I tend to have a mostly finalized list of my personal favorite games in mind. I just instinctively know what belongs where. Worst case, there might be a tie or two left to break or a few titles in need of a refresher befo...   read

What's your game of the year so far?

I've been thinking about Inside a lot lately. That's bound to happen when you spend a ton of time writing both a review and a detailed secrets guide. The more I think about it, the more I think that it might be a serious contender for ...   read

Zack Furniss' favorite moments of 2015

I know, I know. The first month of 2016 is halfway done and I'm still writing about 2015. Well it was a damn good year for games, okay? Back off, Mom. Instead of talking about my top picks from last year, I'm going to tell you about my favo...   read

It may be 2016, but I'm still writing 2015 on all my cheques. So, here are a list of games that came out last year that I liked a bit and am still thinking about because I'm clearly living in the past.   read

Pixie's portable picks for Game of the Year 2015

Okay, it's high time I do one of these GOTY listicle things so I can move on with 2016 and go back to playing old stuff. Given I'm primarily a handheld player, I spend much of my time playing a decent mix of old and new games as well as re-...   read

Games CJ would have played in 2015 if he weren't so goddamn lazy

2015 was a very weird year for me. Back in January I was just another blogger trying to be funny by making light of the industry we so love. When Jonathan Holmes first asked me to join the main page, I told him no saying that my fake news p...   read

Strider's appropriately exciting picks for Game of the Year 2015

It's that time of year again! Every year, I love composing my Game of the Year list. I put an extra special amount of effort into it because I always have, every year. I first started doing these in 2012, than I kept going in 2013, then 201...   read

Jed Whitaker's dank picks for Game of the Year 2015

I've heard a lot of people say 2015 was one of the best years they can remember, gaming-wise, but I can't say I agree. AAA titles last year were mostly more of the same, and most indie titles just didn't click with me. 2015 was the year gam...   read

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2015

As Chris Carter likes to say, every year is a good year for games if you look hard enough. That said, 2015 seemed particularly fecund, thanks to a particularly diverse selection of things I ended up liking quite a bit. From out-of-nowhere i...   read

Mike Cosimano's personal picks for Game of the Year 2015

2015 was a divisive year -- tremendous in terms of media (TV like Master of None and The 100; movies like Spotlight and The Force Awakens; games like...well, keep reading) and a garbage year in terms of my life. Entertainment became a ...   read

Ben Davis's personal picks for Game of the Year 2015

2015 was a tremendous year for me. I've now been an official contributor at Destructoid for just about a full year, since I started last January. I may not have had the time to write as much as I would have liked, but I had a ton of fun put...   read

The downfall of Japanese game development has been greatly exaggerated. It sort of reminds me of what happened a century ago, when Dr. Kellogg introduced Kellogg's Corn Flakes in hopes that it would reduce masturbation. Kellogg devoted much...   read
