The 2016 Special Achievement Awards

The 2016 Special Achievement Awards

It’s been another outstanding year for video games, and while we’ll soon unveil our picks for the best 25 of 2016, not every outstanding game released in the last 12 months could make our final list. The games we’ve listed below are all remarkable in some way, but for a variety of reasons, didn’t make the final cut during the GameSpot editorial team’s many hours of deliberations for this year’s Best of awards. But despite their shortcomings, they are still truly deserving of being recognised in some way as being some of the best gaming 2016 had to offer. They may not be in our Top 25, but all of the games here are most definitely special in some way.
