With November nearing its end and Christmas on its way it is coming to that time of year when gamers put on their geeky Christmas Jumpers and look at their libraries full of this years games and think. What did I play this year again?
2017 has been an amazing year for games so far with some amazing releases from new instalments of the Walking Dead to Assassins Creed Origins. With the year coming to a close I wanted to reflect on the three games of this year that stood out the most to me.
Hellblade – Hellblade was an amazing gritty game tackling some tough issues around mental health, dosed with Viking lore and fighting. It is an amazingly beautiful game with a deep and action packed story. For more on Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice I posted my impressions earlier this year Hellblade First Impressions
Before The Storm – Life is Strange before the storm was my favourite game of the year. The emotional impact and use of music as well as the storyline all made the game my favourite and with Episode1 and Episode2 out the way I can’t wait for the final installment in this amazing sequel!
Zelda Breath of The Wild – Zelda is not a game I covered on my blog however, Zelda was a game I had loved unexpectedly. I must admit I had never played a Zelda game before but Breath of The Wild was a beautiful and exciting introduction to the series.
To me 2017 has been an amazing year for gaming. These three games were the games that I found most memerable. But what are your most memorable gaming moments of 2017 to you?
