A new world, huh?
A new genre of gaming?
Is this even a new genre?
The answer to these questions are probably a resounding “yes”.
Let’s take a look at what the new games and genres look like for the past year.
Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch)A few years ago, it would have seemed like a no-brainer to pick up Super Mario Bros. Odyssey, a first-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic future.
But it’s actually a great game.
Super Metroid was an interesting take on the Metroid franchise and has some of the most iconic music from the Metroid series.
You’ll probably have a few friends over who just love to play this game.
Nintendo made a lot of changes to the game in 2017, but the core gameplay remains very similar.
There are a lot more weapons, bosses, and enemies, and you can customize your character with the ability to use items and power-ups.
It’s the perfect platformer, and if you can manage to beat it on Hard, it’ll probably be the one you’ll keep coming back to for hours.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (ESRB rating)Skyrim was one of the best PC games of the last decade, and it’s hard to argue with the reviews that followed.
It was one the best-reviewed games of 2017, and there was no shortage of people praising it for its immersive and deep storytelling.
But if you’re a fan of the series, this game is worth picking up.
Skyrim is a great RPG with a lot to offer, and the combat is extremely immersive and rewarding.
The game is set in the same world as the original Skyrim, and while you can use items from the original game, you also can use the items from Skyrim 2, the first game in the Skyrim series.
If you like that sort of thing, you’ll definitely enjoy this.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo NX)There was a lot going on with The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker for 2017.
The new Zelda games have really hit the mark with players, and a lot has been written about Breath of The Wild.
It looks incredible, and Nintendo has done a good job of bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch, which will also support the new game.
The graphics are amazing, and I was blown away by the sound and gameplay of Breath of a Wild.
Breath of Wild looks like a great Zelda game, and players will definitely enjoy it. 4.
Final Fantasy XV (PS4)If you haven’t played the Final Fantasy series before, you’re in for a treat.
Final Fantasys story takes place in a world where magic is real and the world has evolved into a postapocalyptic utopia.
The world of Final Fantasy is an incredibly deep world, filled with a great cast of characters and stories, and fans of the Final Fantazons original games will definitely want to jump into this.
Final Ffantasy XV is a good, deep, story-driven game that you’ll likely want to play for a while.
Superhot (PlayStation 4)There’s a lot that Superhot does well.
It features a huge world to explore, a gorgeous, colourful cast of beautiful characters, a story that has you following the lead of a young boy and a woman, and lots of other great features.
It also comes with some fantastic online multiplayer.
If that’s not enough, it has a pretty decent online co-op mode, which lets you play with up to four friends.
If this is your first time playing this game, this is a fantastic game to jump in. 6.
The Evil Within (PSVR)If the next entry in the The Walking Dead series is any indication, The Evil Undergound is a solid entry in a great survival horror series.
It has a strong protagonist, fantastic environments, and fantastic characters.
The core gameplay is also pretty solid, and even though it’s only available on PSVR, it’s worth picking it up for anyone who has the HTC Vive.
Star Wars: Battlefront (PC)It looks like this is going to be the last major console game we see from Star Wars at this point.
The next instalment in the Star Wars saga will be a major departure for the franchise, and Battlefront is a big part of that.
You play as Luke Skywalker and his friends in a massive galaxy far, far away.
It feels like Star Wars Battlefront should be a massive release, but it’s not.
Battlefront doesn’t feel like it’s going to hold your attention as much as its predecessor, but that’s fine.
Rocket League (PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4)Rocket League is a top-down shooter that has a ton of crazy action, and features a lot in-game content.
