Eurogamer's top 50 games of 2016

Listomania.

Hi, hello and how do you do. There's one last day left before the new working year starts, I've still got a whole load of gammon and wine to get through and I don't think anyone can really be bothered to do anything, you know, proper, so if it's alright with you here's a list of games I've just copied and pasted. Some people like that kind of thing, I hear.

We've already had our reader's top 50 games, where Uncharted 4 came out on top, and we crowned Overwatch our own game of the year. What follows is the rest of our list, compiled scientifically by getting Eurogamer's staff and contributors to let me know their top 10s in some sort of order and then totting up the votes to find the winner. Then I totally disregard the results and rig them so a game I actually like wins. It's simple, really!

Anyway, I've just caught wind that the Freaky Friday remake is on ITV2 this afternoon so I'm going to see if I can work myself into a porky stupor before then and just dump the list right here. See you tomorrow when we'll be properly back, and happy new year!
