Despite being busy trying to earn those last few Trophies in our favorite 2016 games, we’re already pondering the experiences to come, both this year and in the years to follow.
But what we really wanted to know was what developers are looking forward to playing when they find time between their own projects. So we sent out the call, asking multiple names across multiple continents exactly what’s getting them excited for the years ahead. This is what they chose.
As another year of gaming comes to a wintery close, we wanted to take a look back at the top 16 trailers for 2016. These are the top-performing videos from the PlayStation YouTube channel, along with a sprinkling of our personal favorites.
We saw some tremendous reveals this year, including the recently released debut trailer for The Last of Us Part II. But there was so much more to watch, from the exquisitely animated action in the Overwatch “Alive” short to the latest trailer for supernatural samurai game Nioh.
What were your favorites this year? What did we miss? Let us know in the comments below, and happy holidays!

It works!) and generally just kill time until we’re allowed to leave for the holiday break. See you in 2017!
Hey KOF fans! I have some great news for you today! As part of our special Christmas and Holiday Season promotion, we are releasing a new DLC costume and a selection of Original PS4 Themes for the fan-favorite pop-idol Athena Asamiya today!
As we come to the end of 2016, we thought there would be no better way to round off the year than to give you guys the opportunity to try out Nier: Automata yourselves. It’s the season for giving, after all, so we’re excited to announce that the Nier: Automata playable demo is available to download from the PlayStation Store for free later today!
The demo takes you to an abandoned factory, following android 2B’s mission to destroy a massive enemy weapon that lies within. You’ll get to use a variety of both short and long range weapons to take down hordes of enemy machines. The combat is action-packed, fast-paced, super slick, and there are multiple difficulties — so once you’ve got the hang of things, you can really test and refine your skills. I’d be very impressed to hear how many of you can complete the demo on the hardest difficulty!
