The Good Kind of Geek’s Most Anticipated Games of 2017

What will you play this year?

Alright folks, it’s 2017 and here’s the top 10 games I’m looking forward to this year:

Not game, but console- Nintendo Switch:

Nintendo’s newest console is coming in March this year!  I can’t wait to get it already so I can become a beautiful trust fund baby living in my equally beautiful apartment, and going to roof top parties with my attractive trust fund baby friends with my Nintendo Switch!

10. What Remains of Edith Finch:

A mystery game trying to discover the secrets of your family.  The game gives out the same vibe as Gone Home, and we all know how much I LOVE that game.

Release date: Sometime in 2017.

9. Friday the 13th: The Game:

I’ve been waiting for this game to come out since it was underdevelopment as a completely different game called Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp.  Now the game has evolved into a Friday the 13th one, everything is soooooo much better!

Release date: Sometime in 2017.

8. State of Decay 2:

A Grand Theft Auto-style game where you get to kill zombies?  Of course!  I really like the first game, so the second has to be better right?

Release date: Sometime in 2017.

7. Yooka-Laylee:

The Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor has been delayed from 2016, but we finally get a real, solid release date this year.  This game is going to be good I can feel it!

Release date: April 11th.

6. Detroit: Become Human:

Quantic Dream, the same company that brings us Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, is bringing a new game starring Valorie Curry.  While Heavy Rain is great, same cannot really be said about Beyond: Two Souls.  Hopefully this will bring Quantic Dream back to its former glory.

Release date: Sometime in 2017.

5. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard:

Have you played the demo yet?  I mean oh my god right??  This game is coming out later this month, so what are you waiting for go get it!

Release date: January 24th.

4. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy:

I’m still not sure if the game is going to be standalone release, or release as part of the DLC for Uncharted 4, but I’m super excited for a new Uncharted game already!  And Chloe will be the main character too so heck yeah!

Release date: Sometime in 2017.

3. South Park: The Fractured But Whole:

One of the games I’m looking forward to the most in 2016 has been delayed til this year.  All good things come to those who wait right?

Release date: Sometime in early 2017.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild:

It’s said that the newest Zelda game will be released alongside Nintendo Switch.  I really hope that’s the case- the game is gorgeous!

Release date: Rumored March 17th.

1. Red Dead Redemption 2:

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming this fall everyone!  Just in time for all the Westworld craze!

Release date: Fall 2017.

And of course, the game I’m actually looking forward the most is The Last of Us Part II.  However, I highly doubt the game will be released this year.
