What games are you anticipating that are coming out in 2017?
The Last Guardian was the big full price “must play” game for me in 2016, but 2017 doesn’t have a similarly anticipated title. There are always lots of interesting games coming out though, but never time to try them all. I feel that it might be good year to ignore new releases and play through some of my ever growing backlog. Sonic Mania is the only new release that I will definitely be getting, everything else is a maybe at this point.
Vane (from The Last Guardian developers) and What Remains of Edith Finch (from The Unfinished Swan developers) both look like interesting exclusive indie games on the Playstation 4. I haven’t seen any Xbox One exclusives that interest me.
As far as open world games go, Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Red Dead Redemption 2 will likely all be good exploration games. And they will probably huge time sinks as well, so I may not play them. Is anyone getting a Switch by the way?
There’s also a new game coming out from the developers of Journey (hopefully multi-platform this time) which is expected sometime in 2017, so I’ll be looking forward to trying that.
Anything else? Shenmue III perhaps? I’d want to replay the first two Shenmue games before playing the third instalment, so hopefully we’ll hear some news about re-releases. It’s been so long since the Dreamcast.
