    Top Games of 2017

    Gimme your lists.
    1) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

    The Legend of Zelda used to be the franchise that brought the industry to its knees. On the eve of a new title, it was expected that every other game on the market would be doomed to antiquation. As the years have progressed since Ocarina it seemed the Zelda series settled for greatness over godhood. Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Link Between Worlds are all amazing games, but they were all iterative. Breath of the Wild has doomed the market to antiquation. Open world checklist games are dead. Zelda has brought back a sense of success in exploration that I have not felt since the NES days. For a title to make me feel childlike wonder in a time when the industry machinery has been exposed, video games are alive and well my friends.

    2) Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)

    When Super Mario 3D World arrived, I truly felt that Nintendo had run out of ideas. It seemed my questions of “How will they top Galaxy” would never be answered. Little did we know that the solution was in our hearts the entire time: Super Mario 64 + The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild X Super Mario Galaxy = Super Mario Odyssey. The pleasure has been all mine.

    3) Persona 5 (PS4)

    Video game length continues to increase as my availability becomes limited. Conversations in my dating life went from “kids in the future” to “kids in the next few years.” With the dawn of free time approaching, I naturally decided to bury my final years by chasing waifus. Taste makers sang praise of Persona 5 with confidence that it was a JRPG like no other. Indeed, they were correct.

    4) The Evil Within 2 (PS4)

    After years of dipping my toes in the survival horror genre, developers finally released an entry that pushed all the right buttons. Terror came not from jump scares but from bending the mind. Death came not a from a lack of ammunition or poor controls but from my own stupidity. Gore came not from vulgarity but from precision. This is one of the best survival horror games of all time, period.

    5) Destiny 2 (PS4)

    2013: “Destiny sounds like the type of game I would never play.”
    2014: “Destiny has great gameplay but lacks any sort of cohesion or endgame to keep me playing.”
    2017: “Destiny 2 is the full package and my favorite Bungie game since the original Halo.”

    2017 Games From Before 2017

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch)

    What was once old is now new once again. Mario Kart 8 was an already amazing game, but the return of dual weapons and legitimate battle mode has elevated this to one of my all-time favorites.

    Rocket League (Switch)

    What a save! While it looks much worse than its console counterparts, Rocket League on the go has been bad for my social life. Why talk to people at dinner when you could go for the hat trick?

    Final Fantasy XV (Xbox One)

    To finish a Final Fantasy post-IX is a rarity these days. Square deserves props for taking the series out of the dark ages (XIII) and into the modern era where belt buckles are limited and combat is fluid.

    i dunno destiny 2 like took away a ton of the best shit from the first game and none of my stuff came forward to destiny 2 coz theyre like "its a fresh start" and like ok, but why do you keep bringing back the old exotic weapons and armor from the first game but i cant get my cool ship from the first game. all the ships in destiny 2 suck balls

    also i am not a happy they put in an invisible xp debuffs if you played too long. and when they got called out their answers was to double the amount of xp you need to lvl up and nerf the amount of xp you get from activities LOL at least andromeda had sudoku
