7 Biggest PC games of 2017
Even though 2017 is not officially behind us, we are getting closer and closer to the end of the year. With that in mind, I would like to look back at this year and mention some of the biggest game hits that we had. And trust me, selecting only a few of them was not an easy task since this was an amazing year for the gaming world.
We’ve got so many sequels to some of our favorite franchises, with new stories, new adventures, and tons of new lore for those who follow the history of each of these worlds. But enough about that, here are some of the best games that 2017 has brought.
1. Assass in’s Creed: Origins
It has been only a week or so since this game’s release, and already it became another hit in the gaming community. Of course, this is the tenth installment of this series, which doesn’t really make it that unusual that the game is so popular already.
The story is even more important since this is the furthest in the past that the AC storyline has ever taken us. We’re actually in Ancient Egypt this time, which is huge for a lot of people. The story reminds us a bit of Assassin’s Creed III, where the protagonists has to leave his native village in search of a mystery and an adventure. Still, the development is amazing, it answers a lot of questions, and of course – it will bring us many fantastic hours of gameplay.
Another new installment in an already very popular franchise, Resident Evil 7 brings even more to this impressive world. Some members of the gaming community have felt that the game drags out after a while, but each time that happened, a great twist followed. Also, the game ends before you lose your patience with it, which is a rare feature these days.
All in all, it’s an excellent game that has made the series actually return to the horror genre, and that is something that will make it iconic.
The Dishonored games have made us realize just how much our gameplay actually affects the world of the game. Depending on your playstyle, this can be both a bloodbath, or an ultimate stealth game, just like its previous installments, and that’s not something that every game can achieve. It actually makes you replay it over and over again, and see how each new decision changes the world and the attitude of those around you.
Now, we’re not exactly certain where this series can go from here. However, if this series has taught us anything, it’s that boundaries between possible and impossible aren’t as clear as they seem to be.
4. PES 2018
Konami is already more than well-known for their annual installments of the PES game. And each year they manage to outdo themselves with more and more satisfying football games, all in an attempt to make the perfect one.
Of course, there’s only so much you can do once you reach the certain point. That is probably why some players say that this newest PES sounds and looks a lot like the last year’s one. Still, it is a great game, and football fans across the world will definitely love it. And who knows, maybe the next one will bring the twist that many are expecting.
What can I even say about this one? It is so rich with lore and story that the fans of this world will have months or even years of analyzing to do. The story is a great one as well, and it even features the new Ring of Power. It will allow us to explore Tolkien’s world even more, see many new locations, fight new enemies, and enjoy each fragment of the game. It’s basically yet another movie, but an even more enjoyable one, since you’re also a part of the adventure, instead of simply being a casual observer.
Once again, we have an amazing game that is all about making a world a better place, this time in Bolivia, South America. We get a massive open world, a freedom of choice, and even the reactions that correspond with your playstyle.
Definitely try this one out if you’re into this type of games. You’ll become a part of a Ghost team, try and figure out the best way to complete the mission, and even stop a drug Cartel that’s destroying the country.
Finally, we have the new CoD game. This one returns us to the chaos of WWII and allows the new generations to see what exactly made us love these games so much in the first place. We can see some of the most iconic locations in the most devastating war that ever happened, and also experience the classic CoD world once again.
It is a story about the fight for freedom, and all that is just. A war that is supposed to end all wars, and defeat the tyranny. And, at that, it’s also multiplayer that will help you socialize and coordinate your attacks with other players. Definitely a must for every fan of CoD series.
