I don't know 2017 was one of the craziest years in recent history. If you focus on 90+ games alone you don't do 2017 justice as it had so many great games that came close but didn't quite reach the 90 mark on aggregation sites (Nier: Automata [89], Horizon [89], Nioh [88], Cuphead [88], Sonic Mania [87], Yakuza 0 [87], Wolfenstein 2 [86], Resident Evil VII [86], Hellblade [84]).

2018 is a really good year so far but we'll have to wait and see how the numerous upcoming games turn out.

2019 Is going to be another great year with titles like: Resident Evil 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, Metro: Exodus, Days Gone, Devil May Cry 5, The sinking City, Sekiro: Shadows die twice just in Q1 of 2019 with many great games coming out throughout the rest of the year.

you and @Relientk77 beat me to it. Nier Autoamata, BOTW, Hellblade, Cuphead, Mario Odyssey, Persona 5, Ni-Oh, Wolfenstein 2, Yakuza 0 and Resident Evil 7 were all nothing short of brilliant games.

That's not to say 2018 isn't bad, but 2017 was just a tough act to follow.

However, for everything great about 2017, there could be other things that bring it down in people's eyes. 2017 was the peak of the microtransaction controversy with Destiny 2, Shadow of War, Forza 7, NBA2K 18 and Battlefront 2.

I still think 2017 was better

Persona 5, Horizon Zero Dawn, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Uncharted The Lost Legacy, Nier: Automata, Tales of Berseria, Wolfenstein 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Assassin's Creed Origins, Hellblade, etc.

So many amazing games and games worthy of GOTY in my opinion

Yakuza 0, gravity Rush 2, kingdom hearts 1.2_2.5 re, Mario kart 8 deluxe, Splatoon 2 and a few more. I mean damn it was a strong year.

2017 was way better. Gravity rush 2, Persona 5, Nioh, Uncharted TLL, Zelda BOTW, Mario Odessey, Horizon zero dawn. It looks like 2019 might be my favorite with
TLOUP2, Sekiro SDT, RE2, Devil may cry 5, Gears 5 , Core Pokemon game, SMT5, Ori and so on and so forth!!
