Most Disappointing Game of 2017
I didn’t play anything that was disappointing this year. I wished certain games were a bit better in different ways but I didn’t find any title disappointing. It’s been that kind of year for me.
Most Surprising Game of 2017
Winner: Yakuza 0
I didn’t think I would be surprised by another installment of Yakuza. Yakuza 0 blew me away and reinvigorated my adoration for this franchise. It’s a fun, action packed, wacky adventure peppered with some of the most touching moments in games. It’s my fourth trip to Kamurocho but they somehow manage to keep it fresh with each visit. Also, who would have guessed Goro Majima was more than just a lunatic?
Runner ups: Persona 5, Metroid: Samus Returns
