Game Informer Editors Share Their 2016 Top 10 Game Lists

There’s no accounting for taste, which is why the Game Informer end-of-year award meetings are always so contentious. The deep variety of interests is one of the many things that makes the G.I. staff so interesting, and the year 2016 had no shortage of good games to argue over. However, that didn’t stop Stockholm syndrome from penetrating some of the editor Top 10 lists. Did you really expect to see No Man’s Sky appear so many times on these lists? Neither did I! Read on to find out which editors’ tastes align most closely with your own, and which make you lose your faith in mankind.
