Here are Darren’s Top 10 favorite games of 2017:
Asura is an Action Rogue-like set in a fantasy world inspired by the richness of Indian mythology. It features a unique procedural skill tree which changes on every play-through.
Tokyo 1988. Getting rich is easy, the women are beautiful, and everyone wants in on the action. It’s time to become Yakuza.
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
Mass Effect: Andromeda
It’s an unpopular opinion, but I enjoyed the game even with its faults.
Nex Machina is an intense arcade style twin-stick shooter from Housemarque. Taking hints from both Robotron and Smash TV, Nex Machina focuses on pure action, voxel destruction and competition in the distant, cablepunk themed future.
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
My most played games of 2017!
Sonic Mania is an all-new adventure with Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles full of unique bosses, rolling 2D landscapes, and fun classic gameplay.
