Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while First Comes Love by Emily Giffin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Space Hulk: Deathwing or Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
