Facebook Statistics Point to FIFA Being Game of the Year

While we all have our favourite games of the year, it is coming to that time of year when everybody seems to be sharing their opinion. This includes Facebook who have revealed the most discussed game on their service.

Based on the impact this year’s games have had on discussions on Facebook a Year in Review has been put together and it reveals what the data says are the best games of the year:

  • FIFA 15
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Fallout Shelter & Fallout 4
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • Dying Light
  • Star Wars: Battlefront
  • Pac-Man 256
  • Halo 5: Guardians

While many of these titles come as no surprise, it is interesting how fast some of them appear to have made their way to the top of the list. FIFA 15 comes as no surprise as the top one, as this will have been discussed for most of the year, and FIFA 16 will have been the topic of discussion in the last few months.

While many may question the inclusion of Mortal Kombat X, I’m sure fans will be happy to see it mentioned. Fallout 4 (and Shelter), The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, and Batman: Arkham Knight are obviously in contention for game of the year as are the others in this list. Though I’m not sure about Pac-Man 256.

What we can be sure of though is that when we personally decide what our games of the year are, it won’t be on how much we discussed them. There will also be some games that are not mentioned above. I for example would include Life is Strange, Tales of the Borderlands, and Telltale’s Game of Thrones game as potential games of the year. Though the fight for top spot would obviously be Metal Gear Solid 5 and The Witcher 3.
