What is your favorite video game of 2017 so far?

Evan Bennett

Probably Cuphead. Since it's rare to have a game without political commentary.

I just want to play video games. Is is too hard to ask?

Caleb Kelly

I don't even know what came out this year. I guess Nier or Cuphead, but I didn't enjoy either enough to beat either of them fully.

By saying that you have invited all the political shitposters into the thread, congrats.

Prey (worthy system shock 2 spiritual successor) was the best game this year so far

Elijah Lewis

Vidya this year has been so uninspiring I can't think of one that impressed me enough to consider it the best of the refuse. Did DaS3 release this year or last?
implying they wouldn't have come anyway
It happens every thread already.
Yeah, prey was alright. Bethesda should never have called it prey though, and should have let the devs complete their trauma stuff and shit. They shouldve contracted someone to finish prey 2 too.

West of Loathing was pretty okay, pretty damn basic combat but having random encounters that are actually kind of interesting puts it ahead for me.

Cuphead right there in second place.
Then Sonic Mania.

Justin Flores

What is your favorite video game of 2017 so far?
FE:Echoes for being a good remake and the most decent Fire Emblem since Radiant Dawn/Path of Radiance
Cuphead for all the reasons everyone have said before already
Fire Pro Wreslting Returns
The Observer, which is essentially Blade Runner: The game, aside from the previous PC title, who's god-tier btw
Not a 2017 per say, but the Hot Wheels DLC for Forza Horizon 3 was bloody fun

Daniel Smith

o shit forgot about "The End is Nigh".
That was pretty cool too, Liked it more than Sonic Mania.

Carson Bell
Carson Bell

Etrian Odyssey V, I guess. I actually forget about most games I play, even if I actually play them to completion, so this will have to be my answer because it's fresh on my mind. That said it still deserves the spot.

Yakuza 0 and Sonic Mania for me tbh

Hunter: Call of the Wild. Great concept, somewhat decent graphics that would be way better if the devs weren't double-digit retards and actually bothered with the lighting.
The game is still filled with bugs though. And some design decisions were so utterly fucking retarded that I had to find what the dev team looked like.
To my surprise, pic related is the kind of people responsible for the massive amount of bugs, abhorrent performance and lack of content.

Persona 5 and Mario Odyssey have grabbed me by my balls and they won't let go

Zachary Turner

Persona 5

What is the appeal?

Asher Sullivan
Asher Sullivan

I can tell you what appeals to me, but I can't really speak for other people.

I'm a sucker for psychology and the Jung psychology aspects of the game have always interested in me. I really like stories where gods interfere with humanity, and shows the strength of human beings and individualism. I really enjoy games where I can get to know characters on a more personal level in a contemporary setting.

Gameplay wise it's not far too complex, but it's complex enough to make some parts challenging (not that I have a problem with games that are harder and more complex, I just like the simplicity of it), I love mixmatching abilities and exploiting weaknesses to chain more hits in on enemies. I love the Confident system and how they mix together a way to make a VN style narrative have great gameplay benefits.

Also I think Shoji Meguro is one of the greatest video game composers ever and he progressively gets better with each project he works on.

Also you can fuck a teacher that wears a maid outfit, which is high in the lists of god tier fetishes

Cameron Perry

Okay but why not either

A) Play a game with much more satisfactory gameplay

OR

B) Just drop the act and read a VN with themes you enjoy and get rid of the slog of EXTREMELY subpar gameplay mechanics

Jace Bennett

A) Play a game with much more satisfactory gameplay
P5 satisfies that specific niche that provides some challenge at some points yet admittedly mostly easy.

There's definitely an appeal to something that's simple mechanically yet can still be incredibly enjoyable.

B) Just drop the act and read a VN with themes you enjoy and get rid of the slog of EXTREMELY subpar gameplay mechanics
Because I don't think it's offensively subpar that it becomes not enjoyable at all. In fact, I really enjoy the gameplay, but if I wanted a game that's more complex or challenging with similar aspects to Persona that I like, I'd play a mainline SMT game, which I do.

And reading a VN just isn't the same as playing a game that has some VN elements. A game that has VN elements can let you do a lot more things than what you're limited to in VN.

I'm a huge Mario fan and Odyssey is godlike but I have to say; the GOTY has to be The Evil Within 2. The ending sequence is just fantastic and best of all, there's even a Fallout reference lol! You guys should check out other games published by Bethesda like Fallout 4 and Skyrim as well! They have excellent mod support from this thing called the Creation Clubâ„¢.

Cameron Howard
Cameron Howard

Not saying it's objectively the best game of the year but it's the one I enjoyed myself the most with.
If this were a perfect world Overgrowth would be there instead but the dev appearently spent a gazillion years fucking around doing nothing and making a decent physics engine that fucks way too much with the platforming levels and the exact same combat system from lugaru only with said physics system(which truth be told makes it pretty worthwhile) but he just had to fuck it up and make the leg cannon so unbelievably overpowered it's essentially the only part of the combat system.

Alexander Campbell

Super Robot Wars V

Divinity 2 is the only correct answer

Zachary Cook

But he's explained patiently, politely and at length why he prefers playing Persona to any alternatives listed above.
Persona games to me are games that glue dungeon crawler to a VN, with both aspects being sub-par, but I get his point of view.

Bentley Hill

Yes.

Carter Watson

Also I think Shoji Meguro is one of the greatest video game composers ever and he progressively gets better with each project he works on.
But Persona 3 and 4's soundtracks are objectively worse than 1 and 2's.

No PS4.

Zachary Perez
Zachary Perez

What games do YOU like?

I don't really like genres so much as individual games. I like Bloodborne, but not Dark/Demon Souls. I like Dishonored 2 and Prey, but not Hitman or Splinter Cell. I love Toukiden 2, but can't stand Monster Hunter games. I love King of Fighters, but can't stand Street Fighter. I really enjoyed Sanctum and Sanctum 2, but can't stand games like Orcs Must Die.

I just like different things.

Landon Ramirez

Sheesh, aren't you a special fucking snowflake.
No kidding you don't like most of the good games. You have some seriously shit taste there, user. I don't think you belong here. Consider going into a containment thread.

Wyatt Ramirez

BOTW.
It's not a perfect game, far from it, but I found it super comfy. I really love games that just let you explore and experiment. Super Mario Odyssey is also great at this, maybe even better because the bird gives you hints that are basically riddles to solve to find the stars.
I really hope Nintendo decide not to throw away the groundwork they've done with these two games, and work on immediate sequels and follow ups that build on the groundwork, especially as BOTW had some great ideas but also some glaring flaws that could be reworked and or done away with completely while keeping the good stuff intact.

Persona 5 is more of a hero story, where you go after criminals and make them confess all their crimes by going into their "palace", which is their manifestation of the criminals corrupted and negative thoughts, and stealing whatever treasure they most hold dear to them.
