Top games designed 2017

Postby Motaur В» 04.12.2018


Here's a switch—or make that a pair of Switch releases. After complaining for the past few years about a dearth of high-scoring game releases, saw two different games score 97 , which represents the highest year-end Metascore for any game since Both titles were for Nintendo's brand-new Switch console, with the latest Zelda release, Breath of the Wild , barely edging out Super Mario Odyssey by less than 0. In all, 10 different titles accounting for 11 total products, thanks to one multi-platform release scored 90 or higher in That's up from just six such titles in One of those great newcomers was even brand-new IP, and from an indie developer at that: Giant Sparrow's adventure game What Remains of Edith Finch , which scored 92 in its Xbox One edition.

A bit further down the page, we'll reveal this year's best-reviewed games for each console plus sections on PC and handheld games. Before that, here's a quick look at how each of the gaming platforms compared during the past year.

All Metascore data for this and all other tables in this report is from December 31, The pie charts reflect the percentage of all releases for each console with Positive Reviews receiving a Metascore of 75 or higher indicating , Mixed Reviews receiving a Metascore of 50 - 74 , and Negative Reviews receiving a Metascore of 49 or below. Games are ranked by Metascore prior to rounding. Only games with 7 or more reviews are included in this and every other list that follows.

While Sony's console saw only two games scoring 90 or above in —down from four in and six in —there were many more positively reviewed PlayStation exclusive titles this year: 20, compared to 13 the prior year.

Overall, The average Metascore for PS4 games also ticked up one point from The first chapter in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona RPG series released for the PlayStation 4 features an episodic story about a group of high school students in a fictionalized version of Tokyo's Shibuya district who explore the Palace, an alternate world created by the hearts of other people.

Critics and users alike praised the game as one of the best JRPGs of all time. The game was also released for the PlayStation 3 console. Not every great game needs to be a sequel. Terrific reviews were accompanied by strong sales, with the game becoming the best-selling new IP of all time on the PS4. The good news for Microsoft's console in ? The average Metascore for all XB1 releases increased to In fact, The problem? Virtually all of those good Xbox One games could also be found on other platforms.

The total of Xbox One exclusives receiving positive reviews in ? A mere one. Released for multiple platforms each scoring in the 88 - 92 range , the second game from The Unfinished Swan developer Giant Sparrow is structured as a collection of short stories about a cursed family in the Pacific Northwest, taking place at various points in time from the early s to the present day.

Building on influences that range from David Lynch to Jim Henson, each tale ends in a family member's death, while your present-day character, Edith Finch, attempts to figure out why she's the only surviving Finch. Trying to decide on a console to buy? If you want to be more generous and include XB1 console exclusives games that are also available on PC but not on any other console , the Xbox fares slightly better, with Cuphead and Forza Motorsport 7 both scoring It was quite a launch year for Nintendo's newest console.

The Xbox One and PS4 each have just one game scoring above 95 in their four-year histories. In less than 10 months, the Switch already has two such games, and they both rank among the 20 highest-scoring games released for any platform in Metacritic's history. In fact, the Switch had four games scoring 90 or higher this year, more than the PS4 and XB1 combined. In all, there were 97 positively reviewed games to choose from in , so if you managed to get your hands on a Switch console, there was no shortage of quality content to choose from.

Easily one of the greatest launch titles in gaming history, the first new console Zelda game since 's Skyward Sword and the first Zelda game to debut in HD introduces new features like a massive open-world Hyrule, nonlinear gameplay go anywhere and solve challenges—or goof off—in any order , and some voice acting.

The latter wasn't necessarily a positive development, however. Only a simultaneous Wii U release where it will likely stand as the last great game released for that console prevented Breath of the Wild from also being the Switch's top exclusive.

The first Super Mario game for Nintendo's new console is a 3D sandbox platformer that gives Mario some new abilities hat throwing! It also offers two-player local co-op gameplay, with the second player controlling the aforementioned hat, named Cappy.

After winning best game honors at the E3 and Gamescom conferences in the summer, Odyssey was greeted with stellar reviews upon its October release, becoming the second-highest-scoring Super Mario game in history—an impressive achievement for such a storied franchise.

Only three PC games achieved a Metascore of 90 or higher in , down from five in each of the two prior years. But the overall number of good PC games actually increased in the past year: titles landed a green Metascore in compared to in That means there were more good PC games to choose from than in any year since we began compiling these year-end surveys in And no console had that many options.

After spending a year in Early Access, Larian's Kickstarter-funded sequel to its acclaimed fantasy RPG received an official release in September, and all it did was take PC Game of the Year honors, with critics calling it an instant classic. There doesn't appear to be much of a future for either handheld device. The number of games released for both the 3DS and Vita dropped once again in , though the latter device is really suffering. With Sony no longer publishing any games for the Vita, there were just 20 titles receiving Metascores in The 3DS had just over twice as many releases, though that still didn't leave much to choose from: only 10 games for the Nintendo handheld received positive reviews, down from 25 good releases the previous year.

Please sign up or log in to post a comment. Great list! God of war is my all time favorite, because its story. It excite me every time I'm in the middle of the game just like playing bingoscanner. Best Soccer game ever by Frostbite. Tunnels, Team Plane, etc gave a real like experience while playing.

For me it was totally Hala Madrid!! Multiplayer environment with looks of players touching the rim of similarity has touched my heart. I could feel my heart beat while striking, as I felt I was living my own dream. His gaming experience was enthralling as he had an uninterrupted, non-stoppable gaming throughtout the year. Digitization came upto somewhat reality and could be felt immensely. To the retard below me that said battlefront had the most "surprising and essential campaign in years" you sir, might have a severe disability.

Resident Evil 7 is definitely my game of the year. Haven't played Hellblade in a while as it was too disturbing and made me feel really bad, though that was the point and and definitely looking forward to continue when I'm ready.

The graphics are so good for Lost Legacy that I'm taking it very slowly, it has to be the right time. When I take the heavily changed multiplayer for what it is, I thoroughly enjoy that. It feels amazing to play as the clones and droids. The recreation of Kashyk is absolutely amazing. The fiery explosions from the AT on Endor light up the night. I'm on him Crait is something that feels incredibly unique. The red earth trenches and the completely flat ground. And of course playing as Rey was great.

Edith Finch didn't feel like a complete game and had a piss poor ending. However, it was right up their with Ethan Carter. Those games really show what games can be and got me thinking how we can fully make the next evolution in this medium. It's all in the mystery that the environment presents, how it stuns you and completely takes you in to the place that might've seemed unfeasible. Detroit, God of War and Anthem will make amazing but having looked at the slate of developers for 19, well, that could be the best year since The Best Videogames of Comments First to Last Latest.

Next year 'Impulsiv' will be on the list x. All hail the king - he is back from a long journey. Popular Reports. New in Metacritic Reports.

Sometimes you won't get the good ending, and Dream Daddy wants you to know that's okay: 2017 always free to play games your quirky daughter Amanda and your terrible dad jokes. These are the scenes of Where the Water Tastes Like Wine -- hand-drawn, games by twangy folk top and designed a creator of Gone Topgames game is set to be an unpredictable journey through the heart of American history and legend. A better bow may make things quicker, but that only affects 2017 length of the fight, not how I approach it. And then Resident Evil 7 landed in January. Let's hope Cage can stay out of his own way.

That, of course, begs the question: What to play? So how did we do it? It's an addictive combination. Stories Untold is "a wonderfully creepy idea," wrote Andy, which is told in four episodes that form a "fascinating, subversive experiment in storytelling that delights in messing with your head.
