In Third Person’s Top 10 Most Viewed Posts Written in 2016


In 2016, I released 181 posts. As much as I would like to see them all succeed equally, a handful of posts ultimately break away from the pack. If anything, that handful of posts end up accounting for a majority of this site’s traffic. This is in large part due to the Google spiders giving preferential positioning to certain things, though I ultimately can’t predict which posts will hit and which posts won’t.

No time for losers at the moment though, as this is the cream of the crop. The 10 most viewed posts released in 2016 on In Third Person along with one honourable mention that fell just short of the cut. Let’s get this show on the road!


Honourable Mention

11. Introducing Board Games to Non-Gamers

I know this is a top 10, but I wanted to shout this post out for those that missed it. Years ago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of board games by friends. Ever since then, I’ve tried my best to preach the gospel of board games to anyone who will listen. Getting more players into the hobby is good for everyone, so I provided some tips on how to get your friends in the game!


10. Universal Fighting Game Guide: Countering Your Opponent’s Tactics

The Universal Fighting Game Guide is the golden goose of In Third Person. These posts generate a ton of views from players looking to improve, as the guide is often linked to from fighting game web community pages. This one is an important one, as it can be completely demoralizing to lose and not know how to counteract your opponent’s tactics. Hopefully this guide has gotten you out of a few jams!

9. The Last Few Pokemon Left to Catch in My Pokemon Go Pokedex

Pokemon Go took over the site and my life since its release in July. Just before completing my Pokedex, I shared which ones I was missing as well as a gameplan for how to get the rest. Of the many posts I made about the game, this one was easily the most popular.


8. Laugh’s Theory on the Three Types of Fighting Game Players

Laugh is widely recognized as one of Korea’s best fighting game players. Thanks to a video from Core A Gaming, he was able to share this interesting theory he has on categorizing the different types of fighting game players. While the video is great, I’m not really sure why my take on it performed so well.


7. Universal Fighting Game Guide: How to Improve Quickly by Training Intelligently

No matter how you slice it, learning how to “git gud” in fighting games is arduous process. That being said, there are things you can do to make the most of your training time. This guide outlines a few tips I’ve picked up along the way to make your training sessions more efficient.


6. The Pursuit of Happiness Board Game

Take the classic board game Life. Now spruce it up with the advances in modern board game design. What you get is The Pursuit of Happiness. Written before the game’s release, this post captures my pre-release hype. Since then, I have a copy of the game sitting on my shelf, but haven’t had a chance to play it. Hoping to get that to the table soon!


Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai5. Buyer’s Guide for Purchasing a Fightstick for Use With Street Fighter V

The launch of Street Fighter V brought forth a number of users looking to get a new fightstick. While I did do a similar guide in the past, I included a few modern recos, as well as a few notes about how inconsistent the PS3 fightstick compatibility can be with this particular game.


Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai4. Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai Review

More fightstick stuff! When Capcom announced that Street Fighter V would have built-in PS3 fightstick support, I thought that a PS4 stick wouldn’t be necessary. Well, after running into issues with the backwards compatibility in tournaments and the WorldGaming National Championships banning PS3 fightsticks, I decided to buy an HRAP 4 Kai. Looks like many of you were also considering this one. I modded mine with a Sanwa joystick and buttons, but the fightstick is solid out of the box.


Legendary: Fantastic 43. The Curious Case of the Out of Print Legendary: Fantastic 4 Expansion

This one is a bummer. As Marvel and Fox continue to squabble over movie rights, the Fantastic 4 expansion for Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game gets caught in the crossfire. It’s the only expansion in the popular series that is no longer in print, leaving fans who don’t own it out in the cold. As sought after as this set is, it’s probably not worth spending the eBay prices for it.


2. How to Quickly Gain Fight Money in Street Fighter V (Updated July 3, 2016)

Fight Money is an in-game currency that can be used to buy downloadable characters, costumes and more in Street Fighter V. In theory, you could obtain every DLC character without paying a cent in real money. In reality, obtaining Fight Money can be a real hassle. Though I did a poor job of updating the original post, players came to the site looking for ways of getting rich quick.


1. Gamewright Announces Sushi Go Party!

And this year’s#1 post is…Sushi Go Party? No offense to the game, as I own it and love it. But I can’t say that this simple announcement post was going to hit the top of the charts. Guess I can’t predict what the Google spiders will bless with top billing in the search results.


That wraps up the top posts written in 2016! Thank you for your support you gave the site in 2016. In Third Person will continue into 2017 and beyond, so I hope to continue earning your support in the future!
