Top 5 Anticipated Video Games Of 2017
WRITTEN BY JASON SEWALD
We had our fair share of games in 2016 and now that the New Year has arrived we can finally look towards the horizon and beyond to see what excellent games are lined up for us. So here are my top 5 anticipated games of 2017.
5. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Starting off this list with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. I gotta say I never really cared much for Tom Clancy’s games let alone the Ghost Recon franchise, but this game genuinely looks like a fun co-op game and the presumed vast landscape gives it numerous of fun ways to play. Now if you didn’t have anyone to play with I honestly can’t say if this game would be fun or not but we’ll see when it comes to us in March.
4. Days Gone
Days Gone looks to be one amazing game purely because I took notice of it. Now I don’t want to say that if I think something looks good it MUST be good (that’s exactly what I’m saying). All joking aside Days Gone seems to be a free roam zombie game which looks quite exciting to play and I can’t wait to find more news on it.
3. Horizon Zero Dawn
One game that I am personally excited for is Horizon Zero Dawn, seeing the first trailer for it back it 2014 it’s safe to say that I have been following this for a little while. Now that our prayers will soon be answered, all I can say is that the hero we will be playing poses some sort of threat to gaming icon Lara Croft.I love Lara and the Tomb Raider series as much as anyone but I kind of got bored with the monopoly she holds in the world of female protagonist and I hope Zero Dawn can challenge that somehow.
2. The Last of Us 2 (that was not intended)
At number 2 we have got Naughty Dogs The Last of Us 2, and can I just say Naughty Dog really knows how to get people hyped. The trailer debuted at this years PSX and it featured a grown up Ellie singing some song. The song is not important, but what is important is that we got Ellie and Joel back and quite frankly it is the game I’m looking most forward to out of any on this list. It would’ve taken that number one spot but the reason that I didn’t is because there is no confirmed release date let alone a speculated one (I just hope it comes out in 2017) so sadly it has to chill at spot number 2.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2
BROOOOOOO!!! When Rockstar tweeted that cryptic picture of their logo painted in red in a red dead style it literally broke the internet, for the gaming community anyway. Garnering over a 100k retweets on Twitter it’s safe to say that everyone and their grandma (including me) were just typing away with their twitter fingers speculating whether or not we’re getting a new Red Dead, and not long after our suspicions were confirmed when Rockstar dropped a trailer and saying we can expect the game next fall. Well in my honest and professional (not professional) opinion I haven’t seen hype for a game this real since… I don’t know since when, I just hope the game can live up to our god like expectations but knowing Rockstar I’m sure they will and with that Red Dead gets my number 1 spot for most anticipated game of 2017.
These are my top 5 most anticipated games of the coming year (hopefully). If there is anything I’ve missed I would love to know what they are, otherwise stay tuned with more news on these games in the near coming future.
