I have a feeling that 2017 will be the "1998" of this generation, a year that starts and ends with bangs and has a lot of great games to offer in more or less every month.


We get sequels like Persona 5, Ni No Kuni II, Zelda, Dragonquest XI, Dynasty Warriors 9, Injustice 2, Resident Evil 7, Tekken 7, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite and probably finally the next Mount & Blade game, remakes like the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, The WipeOut Remaster Collection, Final Fantasy VII Remake and spiritual successors like Yoka Laylee and  A Hat in Time that are going to bring back an almost forgotten part of the evolution of 3d platformers.

There are new IP's that will be unleashed like the awesome looking Horizon Zero Dawn, Nioh, Lego Worlds and maybe Star Citizen.

And those are just the games that came to my mind without looking at any 2017 release calendars. In short, there is a lot to look up to and my wallet isn't ready for all these goodies.  In short², I think its a great time to be a gamer :-)

Happy Advent everyone!

I've been saying the same thing to myself for months & I whole-heartedly agree. Besides, the previous 3 years, including this one, have all been WTF moments (At least, from my point of view). 2017 needs to be a good year in general, not just for us gamers.

Gotta agree. December + the first half of 2017 are going to be hell on my wallet. In addition to what's been mentioned so far, there's What Remains of Edith Finch, Final Fantasy 12 HD, Mass Effect: Andromeda, I think Vampyr's still on track for 2017...

Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash
Sonic Mania
Gravity Rush 2
Halo Wars 2
Crash Bandicoot Trilogy
Quake Champions
Wild Guns Reloaded
Yooka-Laylee
Breath of the Wild
The Switch in general

That's basically what I want out of 2017 so far. Bloodstained was there but 2018 :( . Contemplating Mario Sports Superstars (I generally like the Mario Sports games I've played) but IDK if I'd actually get it.

It probably won't hit it, but Prey for the Gods is still aiming for a late 2017 release as well.

There's a new Kingdom Hearts next year.  That more or less guarantee's I'll be happy with something for the year.  Rest is extra stuff to be excited over, which I certainly will be, but 2.8 will prevent me from shutting up about Disney and forcing Star Wars and Marvel and maybe some teensy itty bitty possibility of Studio Ghibli which won't happen but I'd kill for to rant on for about a year.

Yooka-Laylee's certainly up there somewhere too though.  I wanna be happy with Halo Wars 2, but it's like 343 always strives to have something that gets on my nerves with that series.  Changing character designs because the CGI wasn't impressive enough before?  Meh, the gameplay at least I don't think they can screw up as long as they're copying the first well enough.  MvCI will be fun for the time I'm on there, until the online gets to brutal levels and it's no longer fun to play endless losing streaks.  I'd love to get to play a new Dragon Quest too, I haven't done so since...Dragon Warrior III or Monsters, whichever was newer I guess?

Less psyched for but still really looking forward to Sonic Mania, Breath of the Wild, that Crash remastering and whatever Retro is getting people together for a new Switch game.  Don't want to get my hopes up too high for Metroid Prime 4 to find us getting Metroid Pinball for real, but....I would appreciate it if Metroid didn't end on two terrible games in a row spanning 6 years apart, yeah?

Everyone's said everything I could suggest. We're getting all that and a new 3D Mario game that looks a lot like 64 (from what we've seen) among other things.

2017 looks incredible for everyone, no matter what you play/buy. This year sucked, hail the revolution!

But are there truly grown men in this world?!

I like your choices Gill. Pretty much what I'm hoping to see next year. I really hope Yooka-Laylee ends up being good.

It's looking to blow 2016 out of the water for me. I can't wait for Zelda, Cuphead, Yooka Laylee, Mario Odyssey and (hopefully) Xenoblade 2.
