7 Games In 3 Months For Those Seeking Quality And Variety
I'm a big fan of quality and variety in my entertainment, which is why I'm really looking forward to the next three months.
Normally, this isn't a period of time where a bunch of amazing titles hit store shelves, but it has shaped up that way in 2016.
And the best part is we've got a handful of hugely anticipated games that are very different from one another. There's the uber-challenging, super dark action/RPG Dark Souls III, which is slated to drop on April 12 and is bound to drain many, many hours from your schedule (well, provided you're a fan). At the same time, you've got the beautiful Ratchet and Clank remake for PlayStation 4, which might be a polar opposite when compared to DSIII. Insomnaic's colorful, accessible game is a third-person action/platformer with a completely different feel.
But that's really just a teaser for May, when we get the recently delayed Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which doesn't compare to either of the two aforementioned titles. Nor does it really compare to Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the unique adventure that combines parkour acrobatics, platforming, combat, and even puzzle-solving. Oh, and let's not forget the outrageous, over-the-top Doom reboot, which is the only FPS on this list and is a throwback to the good ol' days of unbridled, unrealistic shooter craziness.
And if you really think about it, one of the lead-ins to all of this is yet another very different game, Tom Clancy's The Division, a tactical, multiplayer-oriented third-person shooter. I mean, even if you don't like all of these games and genres, you have to at least appreciate the sheer variety on display, don't you? Even sports fans get a nod when MLB 16: The Show drops at the end of this month. It's just awesome, plain and simple. Check out the vast array of interactive goodness on tap for the next few months:
