Friday Favorites: Missed 2017 Games

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday, everyone!
While we played a good chunk of games this year, there are plenty of games that I wanted to play but, for some reason, was unable to do so. Here is a simple list of games that are still stuck on my to-play list — here’s hoping they make their way off of that list next year!
Batman: Telltale Series
We’ve honestly had this bought and downloaded on our Steam account for quite a while now… We just haven’t booted it up. Batman in a story-driven game that takes your choices into account sounds like a perfect game, and I can’t wait until we actually get a chance to sit down and play it!
Monster Hunter Generations
I really don’t know much about this franchise, aside from you creating a character to go out and, well, hunt monsters. A couple of the YouTubers that Rachel and I watch regularly enjoy the series and, upon seeing a few Let’s Play videos from them, it seemed interesting enough to try our hand at it. However, the 3DS game has just been chilling with my other games, having not been touched yet.
Has-Been Heroes
We got this action, strategy video game with our Nintendo Switch bundle, and it has unfortunately been shoved aside in favor of Breath of the Wild, Snipperclips, 36 Fragments of Midnight, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey, to name a few. We still have the little cartridge waiting patiently for us to stick it in the Switch console, and hopefully we won’t forget about it next year.
Technically speaking, this just came out for the Nintendo Switch, but it has been available on Steam since April. It’s been hailed as the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, which… was not my favorite game as a kid. Still, Yooka-Laylee never looked bad to me, and it’d be interesting to see how the developers grew on the Banjo-Kazooie nostalgia.
This game won two Game Awards and we were really invested in a Let’s Play done by a couple of our favorite YouTubers that it made me itch to see how well we could play the game. It may be one of the first games that we download from Steam next year!

Have you played any of these games? Were there any 2017 games that you missed that you wanted to play?

  1. I really enjoyed Yooka-Laylee (I know a lot of people didn’t like it) as a fun 3D platformer, but I didn’t go back for more after finishing the game.
    I really wanted to play Persona 5, but it’s just too much time for me to commit to a single game. I don’t think I’d manage to finish it.

    • I believe I heard more hype for Yooka-Laylee rather than great reviews, which is a bit of a shame. I know how popular Banjo-Kazooie was and how excited everyone seemed to be for Yooka-Laylee.
      I keep hearing good things about Persona 5, but I haven’t done too much research into it, especially since it’s for the PlayStation family of consoles. Rachel and I have an older PlayStation 3 from a generous friend, but we honestly haven’t really turned it on. We should fix that…

  2. I love all these. Cuphead is very challenging!
