The early months of a year is generally one of the slowest times for gaming, however, that’s certainly not been the case in 2017. Just four months into the year and we already have a number of serious Game of the Year contenders, not to mention an absolutely staggering amount of releases.
In truth, it’s near impossible for anyone to keep up what with releases like Nioh, Yakuza 0, Halo Wars 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Gravity Rush 2. Besides those number of releases, there’s been a few incredible standouts. We’ll be going over the handful of games that already have a shot at that coveted GOTY award.
2017 truly is one remarkable period for gaming, as we’ve had this many phenomenal releases with so much more on the way. Throughout the rest of the year we’re still looking at the release of Prey, Shadow of War, Call of Duty WWII, a new Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Red Dead Redemption 2, and much more. One thing’s for sure, there’ll be some tough conversation to have once December and award season rolls around.
