2017 has had plenty of ups and downs when it comes to the gaming industry. We saw e-sports become bigger, great games debut, and several hyped games flop. We saw plenty of controversies surrounding loot boxes, and its effect to gaming in its entirety. We also saw two new consoles debut in the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox ONE X. And while the year may not yet be over, Time Magazine recently ranked their Top 10 video games for the year.
Here are their picks:
10 – Destiny 2 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC)
9 – Horizon Zero Dawn (PlayStation 4)
8 – Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle (Nintendo Switch)
7 – PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds (PC, Xbox One)
6 – Cuphead (Xbox One, PC)
5 – Persona 5 (PlayStation 4)
4 – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch)
3 – What Remains of Edith Finch (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
2 – Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch)
1 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has gained much critical acclaim, so much so that Time Magazine has said that it simply is this year’s #1 game. It edges out fellow-Nintendo Switch game, Super Mario Odyssey to take first place.
So, do you guys agree with Time Magazine? What are your Top 10 games of the year?
