What’s a year without a Call of Duty or Battlefield? Slowly these games are being dethroned, while not quite terrible, are getting old. This year was a bad year for shooters in general, but a few games came out on top.
Destiny: The Taken King
While the original Destiny isn’t all that impressive, Bungie proved how you can turn an entire game around and make it fantastic. The Taken King not only improves every aspect of the game (shooting mechanics, quests, enemies, balance, armor etc) but it makes it more accessible and more like everyone thought the game was going to be like on release. Sure, it’s a long time coming and it should have released like this, but very rarely do developers turn an entire game around and improve it ten fold.
