It is very interesting seeing how much loved Cities Skylines is! But not only it. Just Cause 3 came on a 2nd place. We at Distrita have been playing this game a lot also and recommends it a lot. However, Just Cause 3 got some flaws here and there. Especially in the Playstation 4 version. I have managed to get stuck after I’ve went thru the mountains. All of my assets doesn’t load when the game starts and there are huge FPS drops after they’ve actually released updates that should have fixed those issues within the game. It seems that it is okay to release a 79% complete game these days. Other than these flaws, Just Cause 3 really deserves a 2nd place in such event like this.
Congratulations to all from the Distrita team!
