It's July 2017, we are halfway done with 2017 and so with that, it's been a great year for games release so far and I enjoy playing some of the new releases of 2017 from January to July 2017. These are my top 5 games I thought were great:

  1. Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
  2. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)
  3. Injustice 2 (PS4)
  4. Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC)
  5. Persona 5 (PS4)

So gamers, play anything new this year?

Everything else released earlier than 2017.

Number one for me has to be DLC of all things, DkSIII: The Ringed City. Such good content, a fitting end, and great bosses/ gear.

Second is Resident Evil 7 despite my dislike for it going first person view, it's still rooted as a Resident Evil game, and I'm a tad bias to a good Survival Horror. I like these games far too much lol.

The next two has been a tough road choosing which is better but third has to be Nioh, just a straight up good Hack n' Slash game that also takes a few ideas from Dark Souls but at heart plays closer to Ninja Gaiden.

Nier: Automata I rank fourth, I really like the game but can't overlook its problems. It's a great game for the most part however so will place it here.

Played some Horizon: Zero Dawn, but wasn't a fan. As for 2017 games I would have to put that in fifth I suppose considering haven't gotten anything else released this year outside of a little Gravity Daze 2, but not enough to rate it (just checked that the disc worked).

So many Switch games I want but feel my patience will be rewarded in waiting. Can't rationally invest in a handheld with two hours of battery life. It's not something I want and a New Switch will come along.

Sonic Mania is also a day one purchase and I have yet to decide if I'll buy it on PS4 or PC? Might have to wait for the reviews say.

@davillain-: Can't see it being as great as something like Owlboy for a good callback to retro gaming, but also can't see it being worse than Shadow of the Beast (remake) or Mighty No.9. So my hype level for Sonic: Mania isn't that high, just want a reasonably good 2D platformer, much like Shantae: 1⁄2.

Horizon, Breath of the Wild, and Resident Evil VII. REVII was AMAZING in Virtual Reality. Totally justified the purchase of the PSVR.

Hmm, it´s strange if you look at single player there has been a bunch of good titles, but when it comes to multiplayer which everone said was the only way gaming should move, there has been absolute nothing so far. It´s the same shit over and over again, Overwatch, COD, Battlefield, just pointless shit.

But i can agree that so far it´s been a ok year.

In no particular order:

Hollow Knight

Nier: Automata

Horizon: Zero Dawn

What Remains of Edith Finch

Resident Evil 7

Indeed, it's been a stellar year for games so far. I've reviewed the first two if you'd like more to go on as well, and have linked them in their titles.
