What's your Game of the Year for 2017?

Postby Turnip » Sat Dec 09, 2017 11:11 am

Since 2017 is coming to a close, I figured that now would be a good time to talk about what your GOTY would be.

The only limitation is that it has to have come out in 2017, otherwise pick whatever you want.

Super Mario Odyssey, no questions asked.

That game is technically just a port of a 1983 arcade game, so I don't think it counts.

Super Mario Odyssey


Actually, I want to be a bit more unique and say that Miitopia was my favorite game to come out this year.

Has to have come out this year? Fuck that. I'm going by the games I've played.

Hollow Knight is my favourite game of 2017. Hands down. The world is gripping, immersive, the gameplay is precise and challenging, the artstyle is absolutely gorgeous and the soundtrack is fantastic. I was a bit bummed out to see it only in one category on the GOTY website, because this game is easily the best I've played all year. AND it's still getting free expansion packs regularly.

Thumper is my 2nd pick but 2nd is already nowhere near as good as first. It's another fantastic game that really gripped me and which I had a lot of fun playing. It's the best rhythm game I've played and I'd recommend it any day.

Odyssey is in 3rd place. It's certainly the best mario game since galaxy, though I have to replay that one to be able to claim if it's "THE" best mario game. It has a lot of good things in it, but also a lot of garbage and I hope Nintendo will go on to refine the formula they introduced here in future games, cutting down on the amount of filler and placing collectibles (purple coins) in less obnoxious places, amongst ironing out some other annoyances. This game might've not been 3rd if I had played Breath of the Wild this year, but I have not gotten around to doing so.

Rivals of Aether is a honorable mention because I play it a lot and it's great fun. I'm eagerly awaiting any announcement Furnace brings to the table.

I'm also replaying Pokemon Moon and love the game even more on second playthrough, its presentation is the best of any main series Pokemon game to date and the gameplay... well it's pokemon so you know it's good. I'm avoiding some of the overpowered features this time around and battles are sometimes really intense and difficult, which I appreciate.

Other games I've played this year are Ori and the blind forest, Transistor, Mario & Luigi - Partners in Time, Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga & Bowser's Minions, Owlboy, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Sonic Generations and Sonic Mania. I could talk at length about each one of these, but none of them stood out enough to get a honorable mention here.
