Friday Favorites: 2017 Games

Double Jump Kris MiiOnly a few more weeks until Christmas!

Amid everything happening in life, we’ve played quite a few awesome games that came out this year. This week, I’m celebrating some of my favorites that I’ve played!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Alrightie, so this was more or less an improved version of a game that has been out for a few years. Nonetheless, when we had gotten the Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was one of the first games that we put on our list for the new console. With the new characters and tracks that had only been available previously as DLC, it was a good investment for us. Since then, we’ve had tons of fun playing the game with our cousins and the rest of our family!

Miitopia

This addictive and, at times, silly RPG was one of my top games due to how well it was written and how charming the graphics and characters were. Being able to customize your party and characters however you wanted while going through an intriguing adventure all helped push the game onto this list!

Fire Emblem Warriors

Hyrule Warriors was a great game for the Wii U, with placing characters from a favorite franchise into a new style of gameplay. Fire Emblem Warriors did something similar, and I had so much fun with the hack-and-slash game! While Hyrule Warriors had more diversity when it came to characters and attacks, Fire Emblem Warriors had more of a strategy and battle chaos that made me enjoy the gameplay much more.

Pokemon: Ultra Moon

It’s Pokemon. Obviously, the Pokemon game of the year is going to be on this list. I’m still playing it and, honestly, the story isn’t too different from the original Moon game yet in a way that has disappointed me a bit, but it’s a great adventure nonetheless. Seeing the Pokemon additions to the world, letting you fill up the National Pokedex easier than the previous versions, is fantastic. While your avatar still has a dopey smile on nearly the entire game, the other characters — Hau, Gladion, Lillie, for example — are wonderfully written.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

You guys really shouldn’t be surprised that this game is at the top of my list. I’m a Zelda fangirl through-and-through, and I have been waiting years for this game to come out. To see it in all of its open-world glory with a new twist on the same wonderful story was amazing to me! It’s a game that I’ll return to again and, honestly, probably won’t mind the DLC that gets released for it. I’ll use any excuse to return to that version of Hyrule.

Friday Favorites: 2017 Games

Double Jump Kris MiiWith every new year comes plenty of anticipation and new games. Quite a few titles are slated for a 2017 release, and I’m eagerly looking forward to them! Below are just a couple of games I’ll be anxious to try playing.

 

Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy

It’s a Professor Layton game but starring his daughter, and as a fan of the puzzle franchise, I can’t wait to see what they do with Lady Layton as the protagonist. The story revolves around the disappearance of her father, who we all know kicks ass. I’m intrigued by the mystery already.

Yooka-Laylee

The spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee looks to be tons of fun. With quirky graphics, cute characters, and the same composer as BK working on the music, Yooka-Laylee was a shoe-in for this list.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Was this a surprise to anyone? The Legend of Zelda franchise continuously brings absolute gems when it comes to video games and, after being delayed for a few years, Breath of the Wild looks as if it’ll have no problem living up to the series. With gorgeous graphics, an open world, and plenty of new gameplay features like clothing, cooking, and having an actual jump button, Breath of the Wild is what I’m most anxious to play in 2017.
