Co-Op Year in Review - 2016

The Review of Co-Op Games in 2016

It's always interesting to try to sum up an entire year worth of gaming and see what stands out. This year I wouldn't say there was any clear "winner" or "trend" in co-op gaming. VR burst onto the scene and we're just scratching the surface there, but otherwise we had a solid mix of both AAA and Indie releases.

Surprisingly our most read review this year comes from the indie game, Enter the Gungeon. A solid game overall, but one we found a little rough for the co-op experience. Number two on the list is a controversial one, Gearbox's Battleborn which many folks were torn over.  Looking down the list there's a solid mix again of AAA and Indie with standouts like Overcooked, Gears of War 4, and Dark Souls 3 making the list.

We like to break down our popular co-op games list by platform, so it's interesting to see that the PS4 version of The Division topped the charts for all co-op games in 2016 with the Xbox One version not showing up to #7 and the PC version not even making the list! Also worth noting a Nintendo platform couldn't crack the top 25, here's hoping the Switch can help with that in 2017!
