New Year’s is almost here, which means it’s time for my favorite blog post of the year: all about what I loved in the video games I played this year.
I like to restrict this list to new games, rather than anything from my pre-2017 backlog. And instead of focusing on a top 10 list of games or something equally difficult to rank, this post is here to celebrate what video games did right. It might be something that stood out to me as being unique, a plot twist that caught me off guard, or a character I loved (or hated, in a memorable way).
So without further adieu, here is what I loved in video games this year.
