Without a doubt, 2017 has been the hardest year of my adult life.
Over the course of the last eighteen months, video games have been one of the few constants in my life. I’ve moved at least five times, lived in four different cities and had the opportunity to do some really interesting work for others and myself.
One example of the good in 2017? After trying for the better part of fifteen years to produce a consistent series about video games, I’m finally part of a group doing exactly that. The Left Behind Game Club is a twice monthly podcast where we play older games and talk about them. This year, we’ve played games like Spec Ops: The Line, Papers, Please and Gone Home. The only problem with the podcast is that I spend less time playing new releases.
With that preamble, I would like to start this off with a full disclosure of the games that I have not yet had time to play. I give you, my Top 6 games I will be playing immediately in 2018.
1. Finding Paradise 2. Night in the Woods 3. Golf Story 4. SteamWorld Dig 2 5. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus 6. Super Mario Odyssey
Games that may also have made my list had time been on my side: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Pyre, Last Day of June, What Remains of Edith Finch, Tacoma, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Uncharted: Lost Legacy. 2017 was an excellent year for video games, y’all.Read More
