Twinfinite's picks for the best games of 2017 and the overall Game of the Year.
Hats off to Zelda. Persona was really up there for me too.
The best games of the year for me as well.
A lot of their picks were very good.
Well deserved. Good choice Twinfinite. Many more to come for Zelda. Also Mario Odyssey should have been the first runner up and not second instead of Persona 5. Mario is a much more refined and fun game than Persona 5 in my opinion. Still very good choices Twin. *hands out free salt to the many incoming commenters
Lol On the salt. I agrer, Mario is a bit better than Persona. However, that is saying a lot. Persona is no6 on my list.
@Gaz84 I laughed so hard at your comment that I cried. Good enough?
Ahh. Nostalgia wins again. A game with a very good open world, but no story and no real purpose to explore it. No other game could get away With that, but it's zelda so it wins game of the year automatically.
Did Skyword Sword win? No, so it is not nostalia. It is quality whether you want to admit it or not.
I believe Okami won IGN GOTY in 2006 over TP as well.
Real purpose? It is about freedom and it does have a story.
finding all the memories and finding the real story is quite awesome
Nostalgia has nothin to do with it. It’s an amazing game.
Zelda was a huge world of trivial tasks and collectathon of uselessness. No story, no Triforce, no history, no lore super repetitive fights, all side quests are unrewarding fetch quests, no unique weapons, no cool items, no real bosses other than 5 Ganon repeats and a weak finale, no dungeons, no memorable moments, no point to explore other than upgrading hearts to beat the one lame ass Ganon fight. 99% of the game is irrelevant. Even the creative shrine locations are met with mediocrity and disappoinment. Non elemental outfits are useless, Monster Shop is useless and the cooking feature really needed a cook book in your inventory (Like why couldn't you find or buy pages to put in it?). Game play is decent but if the climbing feature wasn't there, this world wouldn't even be enjoyable to explore. The rain makes traversal aggravating and lightning makes you equip wooden gear AKA the weakest gear. Item breaking is just irritating, 95% of potions are worthless. You could make this game an iPhone game the way it is set up. BOTW is one of the worst Zelda titles ever made. Even Wind Waker which was about it Hyrule that was completely destroyed by a great flood had so much history and so much to discover. There was so much Story coming from the world in the characters. Breath of the Wild is basically like "Hey the world was destroyed over a hundred years ago but the battle's been going on for 10,000 years and everything is basically in ruins and everyone is dead. So run around and solve cheap puzzles to upgrade your crap to beat GANON, again...." I won't lie. I enjoy running around finding repetitive things to do even though finding 900 seeds is stupid and ascinine But as a game And as a Zelda fan, I was not impressed. It really was a letdown for what the series deserves.
Zelda doesnt win all the time but it is a contender most of the time because its one of gamings greatest and most consistent franchises.
Just so priceless every time someone says that. It's honestly kind of sad how happy it makes me to wade through salt.
Don't see it.
Who would have thought that you would not see it.
Why do you care to respond.
To be fair, that perpetual squint of yours must make it hard to see anything.XD
I see it.
Greatest game ever made, imho, so I see it.
At this point I’m not even going to bother anymore.
If you can't beat them, join them.
I'm afraid I will not lower my standards even further.
Eiyuuou Yeah we all know you have a very high standard to maintain.
Which is my point mate. I already have a pretty low standard.
"I'm afraid I will not lower my standards even further." Says the guy with an anime avatar.
flamingdragon Yeah, one of the greatest consoles ever. Shining Force III is amazing Son. It's full of blue blue skies I see!
People bash botw because they think it didn’t do anything revolutionary with open worlds. What it did was make a FUN open world game, which to me, is a first of its kind.
I’ll probably finally pick Zelda If and when Nintendo releases a Complete Edition that has all the DLC. Props to it though; I figured it would be GotY from most sites. For me, personally, Horizon: ZD is definitely my GotY 2017.
Super metroid wins mine. First time playing it this year.
How far are you?
Breath Of The Wild is just phenomenal! Here I was thinking Horizon Zero Dawn would be my favorite game this year, but Zelda is just so much better. Kudos to Nintendo. Well done!
HZD was decent but Zelda was something else.
Breath Of The Wild really is something special, Nintendo truly is the master of their craft.
Well deserved. I’m sure Horizon could’ve easily taken it, I’ve heard many good things.
I couldn't guess by the thumbnail so I am guessing either Life of the Black Tiger or Vroom in the Night Sky.
