The 20 Biggest Games to Play in 2017

Friday the 13th: The Game
Given its origins as a Kickstarter-funded game that has already been delayed to 2017, skepticism about the project can be understood. But the new Friday the 13th game is high on our radar for 2017 for a number of reasons. Indeed, the game appears to be delivering on that front, as an almost hard-to-watch death sequence trailer from earlier this year contained no shortage of horrific over-the-top action.
Series creator Sean Cunningham not only gave his blessing to the development team at Gun Media, he also reportedly handed over the rights for free because he believed in what the team was doing. An asymmetrical multiplayer game, Friday the 13th sees one side play as camp counselors at Crystal Lake, while the eighth player takes on the role of Jason Voorhees and hunts them down (a setup with obvious parallels to Dead by Daylight). The game will also have a single-player component, which is part of the reason why it was delayed to 2017.
