To me, it is. All the planets somehow aligned.
The amount of good games that have already come out and, likely, will come out this year is astounding, to say the least.
I've been closely following the gaming industry since at least 2004 and to my memory this is the best year, at least in this 13 year period. Actually, as we all know, 2016 was supposed to be the year, but all the games got delayed into 2017 and now (I don't wanna jinx it) they seem to be actually coming out. Even games like Andromeda, that everybody was so sure will get pushed back. EACH MONTH we see GOTY contenders come out.
Does any other year come close? I remember 2010 having a lot of hits come out. If you gonna say "yes", please list as many good games from that year as you can.
