With only a few weeks left before the year ends, we may have already seen the best of the best video games that 2017 has to offer. And just as several gaming critics have predicted 2017 will be a more interesting and exciting year for the entire gaming community. True enough, the first three quarters of the year has already seen a variety of thrilling video games from movie adaptations, exciting massive open-world games, and entertaining independent video games as well. A lot of game developers are also launching cross-platform features that connect players from desktop computers and laptops to mobile devices and other gaming consoles.
With a variety of fresh concepts, genres, and supported platforms, it is not easy to name one video game which has beaten the others in every aspect. Instead, here are the top four most popular video games that stood out the most in 2017 (in no particular order).
- NBA 2K17
NBA 2K17 started out as a low-spec basketball simulation video game in 1999 but has since turned into a favorite sports game with a steadily growing fan base and massive annual profits. This version of the NBA 2K series was highly acclaimed by game critics for its noticeably upgraded graphics and gameplay. The game also features trademark modes such as MyCareer, MyGM, and MyLeague. The pack includes all current NBA teams, classic NBA teams, EuroLeague teams, and national team rosters. The latest installment of the franchise series, NBA 2K18, was already released in September 2017 and it may not take long before the new version starts topping the charts as well.
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Nintendo’s latest installment of the classic game series is probably one of the brightest spots of the developer’s long experience in the gaming industry. Breath of the Wild infuses the existing game elements into an open-world concept which incredibly turned out to be great. Unlike other open-world games, you can actually have more interactions with the surroundings instead of them being just mere backdrops. Breath of the Wild’s compelling storyline, superb animations, and enjoyable gameplay also made it possible for Nintendo to sell millions of copies just a few weeks after its release.
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is already the tenth installment of the tactical third-person shooting game series by Ubisoft, but it is just the first time that the open-world concept was adapted into the game. The environment includes a wide range of terrains from salt flats and deserts to mountainous areas and jungles. The game’s storyline pretty much involves conducting operations against a notorious drug cartel in the fictitious narco-state of Bolivia.
- Resident Evil 7: BioHazard
Japanese game developer, Capcom, never fails to impress its followers with its eleventh main entry for the popular survival horror video game series. Resident Evil 7: BioHazard, the highest rated Capcom game in the past decade, still adapts a similar gameplay of exploring a terrifying place on your own without much to protect you from imminent danger. But the most exciting twist for this new game is its compatibility with PlayStation VR. Playing Resident Evil is now more thrilling than ever.
