Here we are at last. What was the best game of 2016? What was the best hell of 2016? It’s the same game. It’s behind the final door of the RPS Advent Calendar, which lists our favourite games from across the year…
It’s Devil Daggers!

RPS Feature Park life
Where we are, it’s cold outside right now. So cold that we’re all huddled around the fire, unwilling to explore the winter world. Our Advent Calendar celebrates the best games of 2016 and behind the 21st door you’ll find…
RPS Feature Merry Christmas, Commander
The next door on the Advent Calendar might be dangerous…or, to be more precise, what’s behind it might be. We haven’t examined the contents yet and would advise that you do not approach it until it’s been fully scanned. Why not send in a drone to open the door while you hide in the bedroom. That way if anything terrible emerges, you’ll be safe, hiding under the duvet.
RPS Feature The year's best multiplayer shooter
Ho ho, you’d thought we’d forgotten about you! (We did) But never mind, we’re here now, sweet friend, with the eighteenth door of our advent calendar, teasing it open like a silky gown, showing you its lacy stockings, its hairy chest, its coy grin. What could it be?
RPS Feature 2016's best driving game
Day seventeen of The RPS Advent Calendar, which highlights our favourite games of the year, takes us away from the red tides of murder and into absolute serenity. A driving game without races, a vehicle game more about what’s at the side of the road than what’s ahead of you. A state of mind as much as it is a videogame.
It’s American Truck Simulator!
RPS Feature Fight and flight

RPS Feature Ripping and tearing into our hearts
RPS Feature The Emily Awards
You could open the next door on our calendar, but it might be more fun to find another way inside. Surely there’s a window round the back that someone left open, or maybe you could get in through the cellar. Day twelve of The RPS Advent Calendar, which highlights our favourite games of the year, brings…
RPS Feature A videogame storybook
RPS Feature way down in the hole
You can’t write for a website about PC games without spending a fair bit of time down in the dungeons, crawling and looting. We do find some wonderful things in the depths of the earth though. Welcome to day ten of The RPS Advent Calendar, which highlights our favourite games of the year, daily. Behind today’s door is…
RPS Feature One more wonder
At the beginning of every year, the RPS crew begin work on a team-building crafting project, which we recreate wonders of our world: 2016 was the year of the matchstick Blackpool Tower. Welcome to day nine of The RPS Advent Calendar, which highlights our favourite games of the year, daily. Behind today’s door is…
RPS Feature 2016's best puzzle game
It’s the end of another puzzling year in which plenty of things have made us scratch our head and frown so hard that we have permanent crease-marks in our foreheads. The RPS Advent Calendar highlights our favourite games of the year, daily, and behind today’s door is…
RPS Feature no slash
We like to make mischief around these parts, and if we can do so in the confines of a multiplayer world where we get to play as a rogue AI, all the better. The RPS Advent Calendar highlights our favourite games of the year, daily, and behind today’s door is…
By 2020, it’s entirely possible that we’ll have an entire calendar devoted to roguelikes, but this year, what was our favourite in the ever-expanding genre? The RPS Advent Calendar highlights our favourite games of the year, daily, and behind today’s door is…
