The 25 Best Video Games of 2017

Zelda 1 560x280The cool thing to do these days is to bring back the 80’s and 90’s. From clothing to movie remakes, the retro stuff we all loved as a kid are making a comeback in all areas of entertainment, especially with video games. This year will be remembered for three iconic titles making their epic return to the world of video games. Zelda, Resident Evil, and Mario all decided to come back in 2017 and bring that nostalgic feeling with them as we sat down to play the same games we loved as kids, only with extremely better graphics.

Switch 560x235

But what made this year so great for video games was the release of Nintendo’s latest innovation, the Switch. This time, they have created a device that can compete with the Xbox One and PS4. The beauty of the Switch is that you can take it with you unlike ever before. There is no transferring between devices or files, you simply grab the Switch and go. The game can continue right on the screen that is no longer on your television, it is in your hand. It also allows for PvP play between other Switch users simply from connecting together in the easiest way possible.

Xbox 560x175

On top of the brand new Nintendo platform we were given this past year, the Xbox One received a massive overhaul with its’ own brand new version of a new system. It is called the Xbox One X and it is the world’s most powerful gaming console, advertising that it is about 40% more powerful than any other system on the market. The PS4, meanwhile, has been gaining more fans from its’ amazing library of ever-growing new games exclusive only to the Sony platform.

While we enjoy shooter games, 2017 was more than just killing zombies and murdering random strangers. With the Nintendo Switch joining the platform race, the focus was less on bloody brawls and more about the quality of the story-lines and the fun of a game so basic we wonder why we did not think about it. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Here are the 25 Best Video Games, from all platforms, of 2017. Enjoy.
