TOP 10: The best video games of 2017

We have a few hours to Say Farwell to 2017, I’ve decided to write the best video games of 2017.

In the year of the controversial loot boxes, at a time when the electronic entertainment industry reflects on how its future will be, good ideas (and good video games ) have shone more than ever.

The launch of Nintendo Switch, as well as the maturity of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, have led to the emergence of very high-quality titles. Staying with only ten is not easy.

This 2017 that we are about to leave behind has given us great joys in the form of games that have explored new ways of telling stories, such as What Remains of Edith Finch or HellBlade; that have expanded horizons within certain genres, such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Resident Evil 7 ; or, simply, they have had us totally hooked, like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the true phenomenon of 2017.

List of the best Video Games of 2017

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Platforms: PC and PlayStation 4

One of the most pleasant surprises of this 2017 has been this independent production around a topic as unusual as mental disorders.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice follows the steps of Senua on his journey to save his beloved fallen in battle. To do so, he travels through a gloomy world, inspired by Celtic and Nordic mythologies, and in which reality and dreams intermingle to confuse the player.

Its creators, the British study Ninja Theory, wanted to show that it was possible to shape a game with the values of a large production, but independently and, the truth is that they have achieved their goal.

Hellblade has managed to pass his hand over his face to many other more conventional games thanks to his original ideas and his narrative solutions.

Platforms: PC and Xbox One

When almost four years ago MobiTechinfo echoed the existence of Cuphead, few would have thought then that this promising game would end up generating such a stir.

This action title and platforms whose aesthetics pays homage to the cartoons of the thirties has been one of the indisputable of 2017.

Cuphead is a work that enters through the eyes thanks to the extraordinary visual work behind each one of its images.

It is inevitable not to be surprised at the titanic work that the small Canadian Studio MDHR has carried out to turn the cartoons of the beginning of the last century into the visual images of a difficult game like few others, but so overwhelming in its visual and sound presentation that knows reward every life lost.

NieR: Automata
Platforms: PC and PlayStation 4

Action, platforms, exploration, and role elements are intermingled in the continuation of this series of cult video games.

The latest from the Japanese team PlatinumGames has managed to make a place among the best of the year thanks to the tremendous personality of its proposal.

One in which there is a deep combat system -although not at the level of totems like Bayonetta and Vanquish- and also an original story around a subject as hackneyed as the end of humanity.

The big secret of NieR: Automata is probably in its replayability, and not just because of discovering its multiple endings, but because of the variety and good workmanship of its mechanics.

If everything is added one of the best soundtracks of the year and an outstanding art direction, the result is a game that may not be for all audiences, but that will dazzle those who seek the authenticity of a proposal with a lot of personalities.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
Platforms: PC and Xbox One

The great phenomenon of video games in 2017 could not be missing from this list.

There is no ” youtuber ” worth his salt that has not made his corresponding video playing it – or suffering it, that depends on the skill level of each one – and sharing his experience of jumping from a plane to a desert island in which a hundred players must kill each other until only one is left.

The idea of this online action game is so good that it has not taken long for imitators to come out from under the stones. But only one is the original and is none other than this game that, despite its disheveled appearance, has become the best-selling game of the year and even today continues to beat the most impressive records.

You can not say that you have lived a full 2017 without jumping, at least once, from the helicopter of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

The premise of Prey is one of those that put the long teeth to the fans of the fantasy genre.

On this occasion, we are transported to an alternative future in which humanity has taken space exploration much further than we know, in which President John F. Kennedy was not killed and in which the United States and the Soviet Union united You were to face an alien attack.

Those responsible for the great Dishonored are specialists when it comes to creating environments that go out of the ordinary, but also when it comes to offering total freedom to face their games, which is undoubtedly the true strength of Prey.

Each situation can be solved in an infinite number of ways, a formula that reaches a new level of refinement in this immersive adventure.

Resident Evil 7
Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Resident Evil 7 is a pure terror in the first person.

This new chapter has surprised by abandoning the traditional perspective in the third person to offer an adventure that is played from the point of view of the protagonist, a change that also takes advantage of virtual reality to become a totally immersive nightmare.


The exploration, the resolution of puzzles and, above all, the survival, return to be the jack, horse, and king of a game that abandons the explosive action of the last deliveries.

The concept of survival horror that Resident Evil popularized – which he did not invent – sets the tone again. Again, we will have to go through every time we have to cross a door.

Super Mario Odyssey
Platform: Nintendo Switch

Jumping, jumping again even higher and repeating for the third time with a corkscrew included is and will be the essence of Super Mario, also in this new release. That ability to conquer the player through the simple joy of controlling Mario jumping from here to there is still present in the premiere of this character in Nintendo Switch.

But far from accommodating the usual schemes, it also incorporates a great innovation: now the Super Mario is able to become other characters and objects thanks to a new cap with a mysterious power.

These transformations are counted by tens and not only change their appearance, but also bring new skills. Super Mario Odyssey is full of optimism, rhythm, and imagination.

It’s a new master class on the art of creating video games.

What Remains of Edith Finch
Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Big words. Those people who still think that video games can not explain good stories should perhaps drop by the mansion that serves as the setting for this pearl called What Remains of Edith Finch. An abandoned mansion in which each room hides a story whose outcome will never leave you indifferent.

The Californian team Giant Sparrow, in conjunction with the video game division of Anapurna production company (Paul Thomas Anderson, Richard Linklater, Spike Jonze or Todd Solondz) offers us an explosion of ideas and creativity as few have seen in this medium.

Visually, it is one of those perfect games to show your unprepared neighbor, also in terms of duration, a limited experience of three hours that will leave a mark on more than one.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
Plataformes: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Wolfenstein is one of the irreverent names of the game and this 2017 has returned with the batteries charged.

This action game in the first person places us in an alternative 1961, one in which the Nazi army ended up winning the Second World War and that will take us to explore such well-known scenarios as Roswell, New Mexico, New Orleans or a post-nuclear Manhattan.

A very careful visual section, a script full of jokes that would not clash in a blockbuster action and all the violence marks the house.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a hyper-powered representation of old-school action games, but also a vindication of the almost extinct single-player campaigns.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Platforms: Nintendo Switch and Wii U

The least original choice of the list, but also the safest of all.

The latest adventure of this revered series of Nintendo adventure games is for many, including a server, the best video game of 2017.

After years of development, he was waiting with enthusiasm, but no one was able to foresee the impact it would cause.

The secret of your success?

Leave the maximum freedom to the player, offer a world that seems absolutely alive and put the accent on curiosity and exploration.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the new reference in terms of open world games and will be a game remembered for a long time.

In the recent ceremony of the Game Awards, it was already the Best Game of the year. Few discussed it.

In 2017 in which the electronic entertainment industry has reflected on what their future will be, good ideas (and good video games) have shone more than ever
