Games of the Year 2017: Editors' AwardsThirteen editors enter... and talk about their favorite games of 2017.01.23.18 - 7:50 PM
Let's just get the obvious out of the way: 2017 was a veritable treasure trove of delight when it came to quality game releases. A new Zelda that drastically altered the series' decades-long formula, the long-awaited Persona 5, surprises like Horizon Zero Dawn, and so much more made 2017 an amazing year for gaming.
In fact, it's because of these releases, and the fact that notable games continued to release all the way up to mid-December (hello, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Finding Paradise) that we gave those last-minute releases time to sink in. We didn't want to exclude anything, not only for our own award purposes, but we also wanted you, the reader, to be able to make educated votes for the full slate of 2017's games.
Once again, we have three key categories in Games of the Year: Individual RPGFan Editors' Awards, our site-wide Category Awards, and a pair of podcasts.
Today, we being with those Editors' Awards: Thirteen RPGFan editors wrote their personal choices for their favorite games of 2017, and you may be surprised by some of the things people chose.
We'll give you time to read these today, and come back throughout the week for the remainder of the feature, including the results of the Reader's Choice awards in each category!
