2016 was a huge year for hyped game releases. We received some good games like Pokemon Go, Pokemon Sun and Moon and Overwatch alongside some not so good games like No Man’s Sky. Due to these game releases there was a ton of stuff for gamers to talk about, but surprisingly none of these games were the most talked about in 2016. The most talked about game on Tumblr in 2016 was (drumroll please)…Undertale.

Undertale is an indie RPG which was released in 2015 by game developer Toby Fox.
