2017 has been uncharacteristically stacked, as far as video game releases go. Thus far we’ve seen an incredible array of games in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn, NieR: Automata, Resident Evil VII, Splatoon 2, ARMS, Prey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nioh, Injustice 2, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and Yakuza 0, with smaller titles like Cosmic Star Heroine, Tacoma, Rime, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and What Remains of Edith Finch? also winning over the hearts of many.
And the crazy part? There’s even more in the pipeline for the next five months — Super Mario Odyssey has “game of the year” contender written all over it, not to mention Metroid: Samus Returns on 3DS, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Destiny 2, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Fire Emblem Warriors, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, The Evil Within 2, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Vampyr, Crackdown 3, and Horizon: Zero Dawn’s upcoming DLC, The Frozen Wild.
Yeah. That’s pretty fucking intense.
