We count down our favourite 25 games of the year.
What a year it’s been. We know we, along with millions of other people, have said this way too many times already- but seriously. 2017 has to go down as one of the greatest years in the history of the games industry. Literally every single month we got to play amazing new games. Spanning across multiple genres, across multiple systems, from single player to multiplayer, there was something for everyone, and all of it was mind-blowing. It’s hard to think of another year when there have been so many contenders for not just game of the year, but also game of the generation.
Which is why deciding which games were the absolute best of the best is so hard this year. Sure, it’s hard every year, but this year it was even more so. Even so, somehow, after intense debates, votes, and discussions, we at GamingBolt managed to do just that. Here, today, we’re going to take a look at what we decided were our favourite 25 games of the year, listing them out in order from #25, right down to our Game of the Year 2017.
We all know what we’re really here for, so without further ado, let’s get right into it.
#25. CRASH BANDICOOT N.SANE TRILOGY
Developed By: Vicarious Visions| Available On: PS4 | Read Our Review
It’s a little hard to believe that three games that are by now twenty years old are still as much fun today as they were back when they first launched. It’s a testament to both, the original excellence in game design by Naughty Dog, and the excellent remastering work done by Vicarious Visions. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is an absolute blast, a three-game romp of jumping, spinning, and collecting Wampa fruit that is helped along the way with beautiful updated visuals and an ability to be challenging enough to make you want to rip your hair out.
