We'll see how many votes 2018 will be getting on a similar thread a few years from now. I'm sure it's a case of recency bias doing its thing.

2017 on the other hand is going to be remembered as one of the best years in gaming history for at least VGC users and Japanese game fans.

Switch launch (counting the surprise factor), BotW, SMO, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2, RE7, Horizon, NieR, Nioh, Persona 5, Gravity Rush 2, Tekken 7 (which continues to grow in popularity despite the missteps from Bamco) in addition to several decent western multiplats make it a very memorable and unique year.

2017, for me.

2009 or 2010

Personally, 2016 its filled with games I love. Uncharted 4, DOOM, Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Tokyo Mirage Sessions: #FE, Inside, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Twilight Princess HD, Pokémon Sun, The Last Guardian... I think is the year I enjoyed gaming the most recently.


2017 was a little disappointing to me. Sure, Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, Cuphead Mario X Rabbids and Samus Returns were amazing games to me for different reasons... but many games that I was supposed to love did not met my expectations at all. Super Mario Odyssey became pretty boring pretty fast due to its structure and a lame soundtrack even compared to 3D World. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 had a mixed story and characters compared to the original Xenoblade and its sidequest structure was too damn long, too text heavy for telling bullshit and annoying requirements at the very end of maybe 20 to 30 minutes sidequests.

2018... has been the worst year to me. I don't like Rockstar games, Nintendo got ultra lazy even with Pokémon and Smash, Octopath Traveller and its repetition can go fuck themselves... and I could keep going. God Bless God of War, Celeste and Torna the Golden Country...

Fucking hell time is running away from me. My first instinct was 2007, but that's more than a decade ago now.. None of them really stand out to me in particular, but I'll go with 2012 simply for Pokemon B2W2 and Fire Emblem Awakening.

2017 was the year we recieved two 97 MC games (BotW and Mario Odyssey), Persona 5, Xenoblade 2, and the launch of Nintendo's comeback hybrid gaming device. We saw a fantastic new IP in Horizon Zero Dawn and what is arguably the best Assassin's Creed game to date.

Also for me personally, BotW is my GotG. So for me 2017 wins.

Yeah, how about you make a list of your 50 favorite ever games so we can see how much 2017 is on there?

2017 by far
