I totally agree. Anyone trying to say 2017 wasn't an exceptional year should take a look at this poll made last year to determine the best year of the 2010's:
Not only did 2017 win, it gathered over 70% of the votes.
I just went through a list of 2017 games and it's totally ridiculous.
Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Nier: Automata, Persona 5, Hollow Knight. Five masterpieces I've played. With a lot of other great games including Metroid: Samus Returns, Spatoon 2, Cuphead, Sonic Mania, Night in the Woods... and that's just from what I played.
Going through stuff I haven't played brings in the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Resident Evil 7, Nioh, Yakuza 0, Tekken 7, Fire Emblem Echoes, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Dragon Quest XI, and more. Not only was the year full of amazing games, there were amazing games in pretty much every genre and every platform.Last edited by mZuzek - on 01 February 2021
