Forums - Gaming Discussion - 2017 or 2020? Better first 4 months for console games?

Well I'm not going to be able to come up with ten for 2017 or 2020s first 4 months.
I'll have to stretch to ports in order for this to look resonable.
I've put the games that I haven't got yet in bold.

Night in the Woods
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
Fast RMX(Wii U remaster)
Super Bomberman R
Snake Pass
Wonder Boy and the Dragon's Trap Remake
Puyo Puyo Tetris Switch port? Does that count?
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Barely a new release)

Dr Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch
Two Point Hosital came to consoles
Samurai Shodown Reboot came to Switch, does that count?
Landgrisser 1 & 2 Remake
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York
Mount and Blade 2 (I won't touch it untill it's far out of early access)
Silver Falls 3 Down Stars for the 3DS is the only game I've bought in 2020 that was released in 2020.

Around the Network

So, out of this list I've bought/or planning to buy the following games (in bold I highlighted the games that I enjoyed)


  • Nier: Automata
  • Zelda: BOTW
  • Persona 5
  • Yakuza 0 (still in backlog, can't say anything about it)
  • NiOH (maybe?)


  • AC: New Horizons
  • Doom Eternal
  • FF7 Remake
  • Persona 5 Royal (I'll 100% like it)
  • Ori And The Will of The Wisps
  • RE3 (maybe?)
  • Granblue Fantasy Versus (maybe?)
  • NiOH 2 (maybe?)

So, 2020 seems to be more packed with interesting games, but the question is will all those games be able to top Persona 5/Nier Automata duo? I'm not so sure. Still, 2020 seems to be shaping up to be the second best year of eighth gen, after 2017 of course.

P.S. Ori And The Blind Forest Definitive Edition is not 2017 game, it is a 2016 game. Also, Tokyo Mirage Sessions is a pretty good JRPG released earlier this year, it is definitely worth mentioning as well.


Right now, I would say 2017 but then again P5R is a souped-up version of the original game plus FF7 remake... sooo maybe 2020
