Despite August and September being relatively title-free in terms of big triple-As worth talking about, October through Christmas is going to remedy that in a big way. In the words of Liquid Snake, "It's not over yet!"

There are multiple majorly-anticipated games per month, and that's before you get into the ones that have been in the oven for almost a decade. Not one but two games that have 10 years to their name will be dropping in the next few months, providing very interesting cases of what sort of expectations we have when a project is in the public eye for so long.

Still, 2016 has been a phenomenal year for gaming across the board, be it the Games of the Year (So Far) or just this past Summer's release slate including the likes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and the mighty Pokémon GO.

It's maddening.

Cost-wise, producing discs is actually the lowest amount in regards to artwork, boxes and security wrapping, but clearly EA want to send the message that they wholeheartedly believe in a digital future.

Do you agree?
