Top 10 Video Games of 2017


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I finally got to play this game! My friend was nice enough to let me borrow his Switch and I can safely say, that this game was one of the best games I played in a long time. It seriously could be my favorite Zelda game. I absolutely love this game and I had so much fun with it. In my eyes, totally deserves the praise it gets. - cjWriter1997

I had doubts before it's release, figured it was going to turn out overrated, but now that it's out I've heard nothing but stellar 10/10's. After playing it I can only agree, an amazing experience that deserves all of the hype.

I need this game so bad but it's hard to get the Nintendo Switch because they keep selling out. Even if I haven't played it yet, my gut is telling me that this is going to me my most favorite video game of all time. (And I'm not even that big on Legend Of Zelda like other people) - Rue

Long awaited and painstakingly developed addition to the series

Dares to be a better overall game than it is a Zelda game and still kills it at both

Offers infinite replay-ability and new experiences to be had before the DLC is even considered.

2 Horizon Zero Dawn

I've played Zelda... this is better. This was a new property, Zelda had three years of hype. It was a great game, but Horizon was better.

Story is a huge factor for any game, Horizon Zero Dawn has an amazing story and Breath of the Wild has a linear story.

Better than Zelda, I am not a ps fanboy but... This game has better story, graphics, music, the world is beautiful and it is not empty like Zelda's world, the action is awesome, etc. Until now, this is the best game of the year in my opinion - Ale9991

Vote this game higher we need to beat BOTW! - Xicor12

3 Persona 5

My first Persona game was the 4th one. I love the series ever since. Afterwards, I'm hoping for 5th installment, and it's finally available. Social links are improved thanks to Kawakami's confidant. Main cast is more interesting. Also dungeons are more detailed rather than generic mazes. I'm hoping that Phantom Thieves will meet Persona 4 cast.

I guess I have become more lenient to Persona games now. I used to hate them, but now most of those games, including this, are good enough for me to like them. - SelfDestruct

How can it be number 5 when this is so damn good. I hope more people will try it and give it the love it deserves. - Springman440

You'll Never See It Coming

4 Injustice 2

So far the best one. How it's not number 1 is beyond me. - Therandom

This should be #1 it is much better than zelda

5 Super Mario Odyssey

I heard Mario and Peach get married at the end! Well, AFTER Mario saves her from marrying BOWSER.

Oh yeah this is supposed to be so good!

I give up no thing is better than zelda even through zelda is my favourite game 0:

Oddysey yes see

One of the best japanese games of 20171 - Xicor12

Nice graphic,music,character design and gamplay - Rajalatief

9 For Honor


10 Call of Duty: WWII

It's not even out, what makes you think it's going to be better than any other Call of Duty game before it.

Hands down going to be good because there giving fans what they want!

It's WW2 Call of Duty enough said.

The Newcomers

? Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

I love Danganronpa series. It's so good despite being that underrated :'( - Tuana123

? Bendy and the Ink Machine

One of the best horror games in the century just because of the art style and the concepts are fantastic

Sure, it may be a bit over popular, but it is still a good game. - iexist

Great game. Just the fanbases is the next FNAF.

The only thing wrong with this game is all of the fangirling (ex. I ship my OC with Bendy bla bla bla etc etc etc). - HotSauceMan

The Contenders

11 Star Wars: Battlefront II

The alpha of this game looks better than most final games

I would vote Halo Wars 2 but Halo kinda died when 343 studios took over...

Looks really great.

World's BEST game

12 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

How is this game so high? It just added loads of useless characters (I'm looking at you Pink Gold Peach) - MagmaFox

I feel really weird for thinking a racing game is the best game of 2017, but there are some possibilities. 1. It had a brand new battle mode that was improved with 4 new modes. As fans were upset with the MK8 battle mode. 2. They introduced wireless play! This is a mode where you can have a friend come over with their switch, and play on wireless mode! There isn't even internet needed. 3. The new characters. People were VERY happy when they heard Dry Bones had a return. Also King Boo was exciting. and Bowser Jr to come, after SOMEHOW he WASN'T in mk8. that's all for now FOKES. CYA LATER


13 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
14 Mass Effect: Andromeda

I like mass effect but mass effect andromeda is exception so many bug and no music when exploring it make boring - Rajalatief

The game is awesome and still feels like Mass Effect. Some people just don't give credit where credit is due.

Really bad

awful - Ale9991

15 Subnautica
16 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands

This game should be at 1 after e3 2016 10/10 can not wait!

This should be higher when PVP comes out

Want it bad! it looks awesome, but I'm concerned with TC's little open world experience and bad dlc ratings - EliHbk

17 Red Dead Redemption 2

This game will not be released in 2017

The game was delayed to 2018

18 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

X and Zero is here! Even the final boss is sigma this game will be megaman 9 lol - Rajalatief

10/10 has Ghost Rider and Morrigan in it. Best fighting game ever; would tag out twice.

Great game can't wait for it to be released - MarvelcampomWWE

Do we really need another MVC game? MVC 3 was terrible and ultimate MVC 3 made things much worse!

19 Night in the Woods

This game is so much more than what it appears to be. It may not be for everyone, but there's no denying how much hart was put into this game. Not only is it one of the best games of this year, it's arguably the game that most people will relate to this year. The story is fantastic, the humor is amazing, the emotions are real, and the game is just plain awesome. At the very least, it should be above Call of Duty: WWII. - tonyb500

I could talk forever about this game. It good, but it's not for everyone. If you can relate, it really hits close to home.

20 Halo Wars 2

Very fun rts
