Best Games Of 2017 So Far: Injustice 2, Resident Evil 7, Zelda, And Other Must-Haves

The first half of 2017 was stacked. Honestly, its difficult to remember a year that’s seen a better lineup of games released in its first six months – this may be as good as its ever been. Usually, you wait until the end of the year to pick your favorite video games, but the first half of 2017 deserves a list all its own...

Horizon at number five is about right. I always said that game was over hype. That's almost in line with its Metascore.

Soulst0rmer102d ago

Horizon zero dawn has been my favorite Western game this year. Persona 5 is definitely my favorite Japanese game this year. I think I'm getting redundant and saying this but Castlevania lecarde Chronicles 2 on PC is my favorite game that I played this year

Dark_Knightmare2102d ago

You do know horizon as a higher metascore then both injustice 2 and resident evil 7 so your little fanboy comment makes no sense.

PigPen102d ago

I see where you're going with this, but to what end. I'll admit it's wasn't the perfect example. And to be clear, Horizon is a great game. Just don't be silly, it definitely don't deserve to be number one.

Krysis102d ago

But not higher than Zelda, which is my favorite this year. As a matter of fact Zelda is the highest rated this gen.

AspiringProGenji102d ago

Whatever your problem is mate... Horizon is a very good game, and it is not like 5 is a low number. Besides this list is not related to metascore in any way

Overhyped? What about the people that were so sure it was gonna suck because "OmG The makers of Killzone?" i said Horizon delivered the hype and shut every of them up. Guerrila did not promise anything from another world. They delivered, like it or not

HZD has a metascore of 89 and has sold 3.4 million copies in the first two moths, it's a first entry of the new, beautiful Playstation franchise. If anything, it's underhyped. Also why so much negativity and downplaying towards anything Sony related from you ?

Razzer102d ago

But.....you haven't played it so how would you know?

Woolly_102d ago (Edited 102d ago )

I have to agree..

based on what I've seen... the game is overrated.
the A.I is questionable as well..

also they could have done a better job designing Aloy.. I'm just not convinced.

Legatus102d ago

Woolly_ is agreeing with troll comment that downplays superb PS exclusive he didn't play.

I'm shocked.
:/

The AI questionable? Ha! Nice try! Play the game first so you can talk

CoinOrc101d ago

"Based on what I've seen..."
So you haven't played it and you are judging it. Great job.

@PigPen + Wooly_ Can you trolls even try anymore. We appreciate the honesty about you having never played it, but to admit that and then act like you somehow know where this game deserves to be on the quality, is completely childish. Something tells me if this game were on another platform, you'd be all about it and butthurt that it's not #1. Whatever.

Numbers don't lie; it's a great start to a potentially phenomenal franchise whether you like that fact or not. Hope you enjoy missing out on greatness because your heads are too far up your asses.

Woolly_101d ago (Edited 101d ago )

There are many overrated games that do decent numbers... That's the power of solid advertising/marketing.

I will play the game at some point, my opinion may or may not change.. but the game_play I've seen isn't screaming must_buy... I've seen retarded A.I as well... I'm not attacking the game...

You guys just have an issue with anyone who criticizes a PS game for some weird reason.

Razzer101d ago

Uh....no, the issue is with fanboys yapping about games they haven't played. What you have "seen" is irrelevant. Play it or STFU

Woolly_101d ago (Edited 101d ago )

so touchy lol over a game you contributed nothing to in terms of development.

Game_play footage is there for everyone to watch... What you see is what you get..
being able to kill the watchers in the same bush whilst others watch is disturbing.

Don't get me started with the human A.I ..

DialgaMarine101d ago

It's got nothing to do with you criticizing a PS exclusive; if you actually played and had a negative opinion, that's all well and good. For example, I actually played Gears 4 and found it to be one of the most boring and poorly done games I've played in years. My opinion

The problem literally is that you're openly criticizing a game you admit to having not played. I don't know what you've seen, but the human AI is far better than most games out there. That, and your criticism of the watchers can literally be applied to basically every game in existence that has stealth mechanics. Legit stealth with hyper intelligent AI would basically be impossible to play and offer no entertainment value, so why the hell that is somehow a gripe for you just proves you're grasping at straws here.

Imo and plenty of others it def deserves number 1 with only Zelda and persona challenging it. Injustice 2 and resident evil 7 were both very good but they def werent better then what horizon brought to the table

Dragonscale101d ago

Yeah funny how no xbone games even made the list lol. 3 of those titles are PS4 exclusive. So salty.

Travis370899d ago

You gotta be BS me! HZD is not overhyped.

Persona 5 must have no matter what.

PigPen102d ago

Where is zivtheawesome? Lol

EddieNX 102d ago

You know whats at number one. Still playing it now 4 months after release.

Eonjay102d ago

Sound like you really enjoy Zelda and are somewhat of an advocate for them. I have Injustice, Horizon and Persona and I think you would like these great games too.

Krysis102d ago

They can disagree all they want, Zelda is the most critically acclaimed game this gen with a 97 meta. I'm still playing as well. You gotta love games that have replay ability and not 1 and done

Razzer101d ago

I'm still playing Zelda (over 60 hours), but I enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn and Persona 5 more. To each their own.

DaleCooper102d ago

This year is amazing. I'd love to see Mario and zelda face off for GOTY this year.

Zelda is my top game so far, followed by RE7, then Horizon.
