2017 is known for having a lot of notable games packed together in the first few months of the year. Mainly for fans of Japanese console games.
2020 is looking to be pretty similar.
1.) Which games from the first 4 months of the year were/are interesting to you?
Put the games you're certain you will pick up at some point, or already have, in bold text.
2.) Which year do you prefer based on the games from this period?
Here are 10 games for each year off the top of my head. (You can name games not appearing on the list.)
1.) For 2020, I'm interested in Granblue Versus, Kakarot, NiOh 2, Animal Crossing, Trials of Mana, RE3, Final Fantasy 7, and Persona 5 Royal.
For 2017, RE7, Gravity Rush 2, Horizon, Kingdom Hearts 2.8, Yakuza 0, NiOh, Nier: Automata, Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Persona 5, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
2.) Since Final Fantasy 7 weighs so heavily for me, and I have more games this year I plan to pick up, and I didn't finish Persona 5 yet, so I can start over with Royal, I think it's 2020 for me. Although Nier and Yakuza 0 especially were big surprises to me, so it's a tough call.
