The 20 Biggest Games to Play in 2017
Created by GameSpot Staff on
Nier: Automata is the upcoming sequel to a cult favorite action-RPG released 2010. The fact it actually exists is a surprise given how the original's developer Cavia was absorbed by its parent company not long after it launched. However, famed developer PlatinumGames has stepped up to the plate to craft a continuation to this once ill-fated series, and it looks like one of the most promising games the studio has made yet. With members of the original team also working on it, Nier: Automata is the sequel that hardcore fans have been craving.
Taking place sometime after the events of the first game, the game puts you in the role of an elite android tasked with driving off an invasion of machine-like beings from another world. It's a simple set up, but the hectic, fast-paced battles that ensue are the major highlight of what this game has to offer. We simply cannot wait to wail on robots with oversized swords and katanas and once this game launches in March.
