Tomomb's Miiverse Memorial Game of the Year List 2017
Here is the complete list of the 13 games I played this year released in 2017. I suppose I'm coming to terms with the fact that I don't buy a ton of games in their release year, and that's okay. I just hope I don't miss out on a lot of cool smaller scale games that can slip through the cracks.
I did get around to finally buying Grand Theft Auto V, played half of the story and tried to understand Online for a while. This year was also a dip in the toe for playing console online games. Ontop of GTA a friend and I tried out The Division, Destiny, and Drawn to Death, but ended up playing Battlefront the most.
We also tried a bit of the Mass Effect: Andromeda multiplayer since I downloaded the generous 10 hour long demo. Didn't make it very far in the story. One of my favorite franchises, yet at no point leading up to this year's release did I feel excited for it. Even after playing for three or four hours I can't picture any of the characters from that game.
I also tried the demo for NeiR: Automata since I heard some cool things about it. But the aesthetics and the game play turned me off right away. Maybe one day down the line when it's cheap.
EDIT: Thanks to the steam sale I have some late entries. I picked up a few games, but it looks like What Remains of Edith Finch and Night in the Woods are the ones I'll get around to before the new year. Time to find some Miiverse drawings to re-contextualize...
...also I started playing Wolfenstein: The New Colossus before the year ended, but I am happy to say, it was too late to be a contender and I don't have to edit this list anymore.
