The 20 games you'll want to play in 2016

Single player games won 2015, a year that brought an abundance of solo options that saw the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 recover their stuttering stride.

Having been starved of truly polished adventures, we were finally treated to a glut of titles that the 'next-gen' consoles had promised, with BloodborneRise of the Tomb Raider, Super Mario MakerMetal Gear Solid V,The Witcher III and Fallout 4 all worthy contenders for "Game of the Year" awards. Besides console gaming, numerous apps brought joy to our thumbs, with DownwellDark Echo and Hitman Sniper all deserving a spot on your smartphone.

As we continue to hunt out the achievements and max out our stats, 2016 continues apace, promising some grand delights (foregoing any cancellations).

Here are some of the titles we're looking forward to most. Game on.
