Posted October 09, 2018 05:00:31The past year has seen a huge explosion in the number of great video games.
In 2016 alone, there were over 20,000 new games released for Xbox One and PS4, and over 12 million units sold for the platforms.
These numbers are staggering, and the list of games released each year will grow even more.
However, as you might expect, it’s not just new games that are making a mark on the gaming world.
In the past, we’ve discussed the rise of indie developers and their ability to reach gamers.
It’s now time to take a closer look at the new trends and what’s driving these emerging genres.
This time, I’m looking at games that have been released in the past 12 months.
I’ve grouped them by genre (including games that were released in 2016) to show how they’re becoming more and more popular.
