TOP PC GAMES OF 2016
After an amazing 2015, we are very sure that 2016 is also going to be
same because for all those gaming lovers and addicts we have amazing
and captivating games which will make this year more interesting.
Top PC games of 2016:
Dota 2 is a hugely popular MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena)
game that originated from the WarCraft III mod ‘DOTA’ (Defence of
the Ancients). In fact, the game maintains the title of having the biggest
e-sports prize of any game on the planet, with ‘The International 5’
featuring a prize pool of a whopping $18 million.
The idea behind the game is pretty simple; Players pick a hero and battle
it out against the other team, and using tactical gameplay, bring down
the enemy base. There are over one hundred heroes available and every
hero has a variety of skills and abilities. When combined with the skills
of your teammates characters, the gameplay can be quite unexpected and
ensures that no two games are ever alike.
LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
Another hugely popular MOBA that is League of Legends, a game that
recently hosted a worldwide tournament that filled arenas including
Wembley with fans, and offered a top prize of $1 million. The game is
described by its developers as a “fast-paced, competitive online game
that blends the speed and intensity of an RTS with RPG elements.” Two
teams comprised of five players battle head-to-head across various
battlefields and game modes, with the aim of destroying the enemy
Nexus (which is pretty heavily protected as you might imagine).
However unlike with World of Tanks, the game isn’t over when the
opposing team is wiped out – instead, players must think strategically to
destroy the various inhibitors positioned throughout the map with the
aim of wiping out the enemy Nexus. The inhibitors are protected by
turrets which are best handled when you use minions to take the flack
(top tip there), and if you attack a nearby Champion the turret will
automatically focus on you. It’s a game full of perks (red and blue buffs
offer the edge in battle) and a dragon that, when slain, offers additional
There’s also a huge focus on customisation, as players are able to fully
customise their champions to suit their style of gameplay – players can
enhance their armour, magic resistance and health to take on the role of
a tank, for example. It’s a game, like many other MOBAs, that won’t
take long to learn but will take years to master.
WORLD OF TANKS
World of Tanks is a popular MMO (massively multiplayer online) game
featuring early to mid-20th century fighting vehicles. Players find
themselves browsing a selection of armoured vehicles before being
dropped into an epic battle on a random map. The player has complete
control over the movement of the vehicle, as well as its firing, and
players are able communicate with team mate via both text and voice
chat. The aim of the game is, basically, to wipe out the other team or
capture a base (though this isn’t present in every game mode).
You’ll find six types of battle in World of Tanks; random battles, team-
training battles, tank-company battles, team battles, stronghold battles
and special battles. Random battles also offer missions which, if
completed, reward the player with credits, higher crew experience
coefficients, or new vehicles. Though the game is free to play, players
can opt to pay for the use of ‘premium’ features (like additional tanks).
Warframe is a third person shooter with co-operative capabilities,
developed by Digital Extremes (and is also available on PS4 and Xbox
One). Players are dropped into the virtual world as members of the
Tenno, a race of ancient warriors (or space ninjas as we refer to them) at
war with the Grineer, the Corpus and the Infested. The player’s
characters are equipped with exo-armour called ‘Warframes’ and
together with teams of up to four, the aim is to work together and
complete missions. Missions vary from having to wipe out enemies to
hacking terminals to retrieve data and even assassinating high ranking
Players are equipped with three weapons; a primary weapon (rifle,
shotgun, etc), a secondary weapon (usually a pistol but players can also
opt for bladed weapons) and a melee weapon (again, bladed weapons
including swords and axes). Each piece of equipment can be upgraded,
and these upgrades are usually found on the bodies of defeated enemies
but can also be found by completing challenges and mission.
Firewatch is a first-person adventure game with a scary twist. You play
as a man called Henry, a man who has retreated from his messy life to
work as a fire lookout. It’s set in the Wyoming wilderness in the summer
of 1989; there are no guns to get you out of tight situations and your
only contact is your supervisor on the other end of the radio, Delilah.
Your job is to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe during an
especially hot and dry summer. However, a series of events will draw
you away from the safety of the tower and forces you to explore the wild
and unknown environment. The game looks to be decision-based, with
different choices affecting the environment around you, and possibly
even the end result.

STREET FIGHTER V
Street Fighter V was unveiled at the 2014 PlayStation Experience in Las
Vegas, and will be exclusive for Windows and PS4. With some familiar,
and rather surprising, characters to play, a revamped battle system, and
graphics powered by the latest Unreal 4 engine.
HEARTHSTONE: HEROES OF WARCRAFT
For those looking for something slightly different, we offer Hearthstone:
Heroes of Warcraft. Hearthstone is an online collectible card game
developed by Blizzard, creators of World of Warcraft. Released back in
2014, the game is available to play on Windows, OS X, iOS and
Android devices with cross-platform capabilities and progress syncing.
This means that you can play on your PC, then carry on where you left
off on your iPad while battling an opponent using a Mac.
The game is, essentially, a digital collectible card game that revolves
around turn-based matches, with a variety of game modes. While players
start the game with a collection of basic cards, players can come across
rarer and more powerful cards by purchasing packs of cards, as well as a
reward for completing various Arena runs. Unlike with other playing
card games, your opponent has no influence over your action during
your turns – which is a huge plus – although your foe can play cards
that’ll automatically respond to your actions.
