Well, fun is the most crucial element of any titles whether it is a big AAA or a small scale game. Many times AAA titles fail to provide the level of engagement small-scale titles do and Google’s latest report for the most searched games of 2016 is proof of that.

The internet searched for games that tickled its curiosity. Two web-based games took the prize home for being so simple yet more addictive than some AAA titles. Here’s Google’s list of top ten most searched video games for 2016.

  • Overwatch
  • Battlefield 1
  • Warcraft
  • Dark Souls 3
  • Blade and Soul
  • Madden 17
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

Overwatch is the third most searched video game of 2016 and rightfully so. It is a highly addictive shooter from Blizzard and we can expect it to be around for a long time. The first two games are and, both small-scale web-based games.

On number 4 we have Battlefield 1 from EA DICE. The world war based shooter is one of the top-selling games of the year and has been critically acclaimed across the board.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is on number 10 for the most searched video games list. Activision’s latest title was underwhelming and there are clear signs of franchise fatigue. Still, it managed to get a lot of attention from hardcore fans.

No Man’s Sky was probably the biggest disaster of 2016; Sean Murray and Hello Games released an unfinished product on PlayStation 4 and PC. The studio went dark for a couple of months before coming out to announce the Foundation update. The features of this particular update should have been a part of the product from the start.
