In 2016, I released 181 posts. As much as I would like to see them all succeed equally, a handful of posts ultimately break away from the pack. If anything, that handful of posts end up accounting for a majority of this site’s traffic. This is in large part due to the Google spiders giving preferential positioning to certain things, though I ultimately can’t predict which posts will hit and which posts won’t.
No time for losers at the moment though, as this is the cream of the crop. The 10 most viewed posts released in 2016 on In Third Person along with one honourable mention that fell just short of the cut. Let’s get this show on the road!
Years ago, I stopped declaring a game of the year. After 2012, my gaming habits changed in a way where I didn’t really have a comprehensive enough view of the gaming landscape to make such a proclamation. Technically, the same could be said about my year of gaming in 2016, as I can count on my fingers the number of games I played seriously.
What makes this year different is that there is one game this year that really carved out a place in my heart that deserves a shout-out. Was it Street Fighter V? Fire Emblem: Fates? Or something from out of the blue that completely caught me by surprise?
My 2016 game of the year is…
Happy New Year!
2015 was cool, but that’s in the past now and we have a new year to look forward to. This is going to be a monumental year for me, as Steff and I are set to get married(!). However, for the purposes of this post, let’s keep the focus on video games, board games and comic books. What are my thoughts on the year ahead?
