While we’re just six months in for the year, it’s hard to deny the amount of amazing games that’s already available out there. From sequels, to new franchises, the first two quarters of game releases for 2017 has been nothing short of spectacular.
It might be too early to crown which game will win Game of the Year 2017, but at this point, we can kind of narrow down some of the games that we just know will be in contention from various publications just because of how great they are. Curious? You should be.
In alphabetical order (not ranked in any way at all), here are the 10 games that are already in the running for 2017’s highly coveted Game of the Year pick.
When Guerrilla Games announced that the studio was working on a new IP and putting the Killzone franchise on hiatus, no one could have predicted it’d be this good. From gorgeous visuals, solid gameplay mechanics, and an open world that made you want to explore it, Horizon : Zero Dawn had it all.
What makes Horizon even more impressive is the fact that it’s a new brand; it’s something that hasn’t sold millions of units before. Oh, and did I mention that it features a non-sexualized female as the protagonist?
If you’re a fan of third-person action games, or just open world games in general, you owe it to yourself to give Horizon: Zero Dawn a go.
