SmashPad’s Top 10 Games of 2016

6. The Witness (PS4, XB1, PC)

The Witness is the sort of puzzle game that presents you with a fairly simple interface for solving its puzzles, but it’s how the mechanics change and evolve in the world around those interfaces that changes how you have to perceive those puzzles that is where its brilliance shines through. I simply couldn’t put down this game for very long before I had to dive back in to explore the island further and be amazed at what new wrinkles or layers would unfold to change my entire perception of what constituted a puzzle in this world.” – Chris Selogy, Managing Editor
