Leaving 2017 behind

My favourite ten games of 2017 kinda deserve a list, in no particular order. Some I will post reviews of soon, but for now here they are:

  • Resident Evil 7
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • Forza Motorsport 7
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda
  • Assassins Creed Origins 
  • Call Of Duty WWII
  • Sonic Mania
  • Halo Wars 2
  • Uncharted: Lost Legacy
  • Horizon Zero Dawn

The absolute favourite this year, and a big surprise at that, is Resident Evil 7. It reinvented the series in a fantastic fashion, taking it's roots back to horror and even more so than ever before. Scary as hell and inspired by more modern indie styled horror games, Capcom outdid themselves and dares make the game complete new and in first person. A fantastic title.

Second place would be Mass Effect: Andromeda as I felt it really made my dream of finding distant planets to terra form and colonise come true, I felt it received a stupid amount of negativity by the press and gamers in general, suffering from simply becoming a internet meme with no substance in what the game actually offered. I'm still hoping this title receives a Xbox One X update.

Third goes to Horizon Zero Dawn with it's captivating story and fantastic open world. Very different in it's approach to setting, blending almost middle age life with futuristic technology and intriguingly weird robot animals to fight. I drowned myself in this beautiful game and look forward to checking out it's Frozen Wilds add-on.

Well, we're now in 2018 and here's hoping there's lots of new and exciting games for the months to come. Happy new year!
