February 23 Will Be The Best Day For Gaming In 2016

We all know that 2016 is loaded with hugely anticipated titles. But did you realize that three potential Game of the Year candidates are actually slated to launch on the same damn day?

That's right. Mark your calendar if you haven't already: February 23, 2016.

On that day, we will receive Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, and the freshly announced Far Cry Primal. It's one helluva coincidence and the only good news for those tight on time is that only the latter will be truly open-world (we think). Catalyst is certainly more open than the original Mirror's Edge but it clearly isn't a sandbox experience that will run you hundreds of hours, and neither is Mankind Divided. The 100+ hour experiences like Fallout 4 will be behind you by then.

Even so, that's quite the trio. Furthermore, PlayStation 4 owners probably shouldn't forget that Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness is scheduled to come out only a couple days later on the 25th, and that's guaranteed to be a pretty big game. Oh, and don't forget about The Division and Hitman in March, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in April (yes, all three were delayed; they were originally set for late 2015).

So, planning to call in sick on February 23, or what?

I would have to disagree. Two First Person Shooters and a First Person Free Running action game. Neither is for me.

Deus Ex is a stealth game unless you force it to not be.

It's more of an action/RPG than it is a shooter, that's for damn sure.

nah, I'm not interested on those 3 games. But I'll be getting Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness and of course, Uncharted 4. ^_^

Deus Ex is my clear favourite. Mirrors Edge will be extremely interesting to see game play of, and I'll probably skip Far Cry (!).

One more important thing to mention along Uncharted in April , Dark souls 3 . Glad there is a couple of great game before then , otherwise the wait for DS3 would be painful .

None of those games on 02/23 capture my interest. I will be getting Star Ocean though.

The date that Dark Souls 3 releases will be the best day of 2016.

I'm sorry, but I would have to say that March 18th will be the greatest day for gaming in 2016. But I'm a Naughty Dog freak so what can I say.

Eh maybe only mirrors edge for me. Far Cry looks interesting since I'm itching to play a turok like game for some reason.

Never been into star ocean but I'm so thirsty for a Japanese game.

I'll probably pass on those 3 and just get Star Ocean, though if i get one it'll most likely be Deus Ex.
