Best games of the year. What will 2017 be remembered for?

19 December 2017  Best games of the year. What will 2017 be remembered for?

The year is coming to an end, which means it's time to summarize and choose best gaming novelties that 2017 brought us. We suggest picking eight leaders among all the released variety and briefly discussing their main advantages.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

The main hit of the year, which gained popularity long before the official release. Actually, the full PUBG version release will take place on December 20, but about 2 million people are already simultaneously playing it, and at the stage of the early release, more than 25 million copies were sold.

The phrase "hardcore multiplayer survival" describes this game in the best way. Survive and destroy all the enemies before they do it to you.

Assassin's Creed: Origins

Open world, thought-out gameplay, high quality action-adventure – Origins has it all. In addition, you’ll be dealing with enemies in the enchanting entourage of ancient Egypt. And most importantly - this is a worthy sequel to the iconic series about assassins’ adventures! Obviously in the top, no doubt.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

"Mom, buy me an orc!" – that’s how young gamers are now begging their parents for pocket money, which they later blow on gaming stuff. At the same time, it’s worth noting that in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, microtransactions are integrated quite sensibly, and not as it sometimes happens.

RPG action in the open world of Middle-Earth with multiplayer access. The plot and the image are right-on. You can also see the detailed work on the characters: orcs are certainly not elves but the authors put some effort into giving them some special charisma.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Another game that managed to get famous before it was released. As soon as the trailers came out, cosplayers began mercilessly adapting the image of the main character to their own needs.

An open post-apocalyptic world with robotic dinosaurs and humans whose development is somewhere at the Stone Age level. The game is beautiful and the gameplay deserves the highest praise.

Destiny 2

First science fiction project in this collection. Everything that we love: travel through the colorful expanse of the Solar System followed by battles with evil aliens.

This online shooter was called the best game of the year by well-known American critics more than once. The WEGAME team shares their opinion and includes Destiny 2 in its top as well. The developers also released a free seven-level demo, we recommend using this act of kindness.

Nier: Automata

This RPG action became the main discovery of this spring thanks to an unusual and complex narrative system, as well as interesting ending versions. However, this game is in our top not even because of these reasons. Cosplay of the main character of the story - android 2B - was one of the most pleasant moments of the WEGAME 3.0 festival!

And the game is really great, we recommend it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

JRPG adventure action in a fantasy entourage. A thought through gameplay is not that common with the open world, whereas Zelda developers took into account such details as the need for food and the weather conditions effect.

The game has many advantages, but there is also a significant drawback - it is only available on Wii U and Switch consoles, the developers make no promises about a PC version.

Tekken 7

The best fighting game of the year. Great continuation of the long-beloved series. It has even been called "the resurrection of the legend."
