List Rules Vote up the most anticipated games of 2016

2015 was a whirlwind of insanely awesome video games, but 2016's video game releases make it truly a year for the books. All of these new video games are looking to change the way we play video games - from indie studios to mega houses, and everywhere in between.   

2016's new video game releases range from brand-new franchises, like Unravel, Quantum Break and Battleborn, to re-imaginings of classic games, such as DOOM, Final Fantasy VII, and Rachet & Clank. Some video game lines are even going to continue producing their awesome franchises, such as Uncharted, Dark Souls, Gears of War, Mass Effect, and many more!  

Needless to say, the video games coming out in 2016 are going to break all kinds of records and change the way we see gaming. These upcoming video games look fantastic, but which is the most anticipated video game of 2016? With so many big video games dropping, which one are you fiending for most?
