I had a great time with 2016’s games, so I hope that 2017 continues this trend. If not I will be mighty displeased, or I will just have to watch more movies. Maybe even spend more time with my family. Here are my top five games for next year!
Vampyr will probably not make a lot of other top five lists, but I have been waiting for my follow up to Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines for a long time, and Vampyr might be as close as I am going to get.
4: Crackdown 3
After the let down that was Crackdown 2 it was not surprising that they put Crackdown 3 on the shelf for a while, but ever since the game resurfaced two years ago I have dying to get my hands on Crackdown’s signature brand of full-scale super powered destruction.
3: Sea of Thieves
I hate MMOs, but I love pirates, and they rarely make pirate games worth playing. Sea of Thieves looks to change all that. Rare’s seems focused on making Sea of Thieves as fun as possible, and an MMO worth playing. I hope they succeed!
2: Mass Effect: Andromeda
It has been four long years since Mass Effect 3 came out, and it will have been five by the time Andromeda comes out, so there is no way I am missing this game. Any other year Mass Effect would be number one on my list, but next year has something special..
1: Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption is one of my favorite games all time, and I have waiting for what seems like forever for Red Dead Redemption 2 (forever is seven years apparently), so RDR 2 easily takes the top spot!
Honorable Mention: Cuphead is capitalizing on my love of hand drawn animation and fun boss battles. This game looks like it will be tons of fun … if it ever comes out.
Looks like I have a lot of games to play next year! What are you excited for in 2017?
