And the reign continues
TIME named the Nintendo Switch the Top Gadget of 2017 and how now released their list of Top 10 Video Games of 2017. Among the games, Nintendo has three exclusive Switch titles, the most out of any other company.
Here is the list of all Top 10 games from TIME:
1 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch):
Scrambling across the idyllic vistas of Nintendo’s vast new fantasy sandbox The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it’s easy to see the action-adventure’s sunken structures—plaintive artifacts of a vanished golden age waiting to be restored—as a metaphor for Nintendo itself. It’s like nothing else the company has made, an experience so simultaneously prodigious and accomplished that it feels like a mic drop to the sort of “open world” games (Grand Theft Auto V, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, The Witcher 3) the industry seems bent on proliferating. But what drives Breath of the Wild to soar comes down to essential Nintendo design principles.
2 – Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch):
Super Mario Odyssey is Nintendo’s grandest reimagining of the Super Mario series in years. It builds on the open world concepts Nintendo initially introduced with 1996’s Super Mario 64 and 2002’s Super Mario Sunshine, but gives players even more to explore. Odyssey manages to turn the Super Mario series upside down while staying true to the franchise’s most beloved qualities — and dialing them up to 11. Mario’s companion Cappy enables the beloved plumber to take on the form of his enemies — including waddling Goombas and frying-pan-chucking Koopas—in order to progress through levels. It’s a game that rewards players for exploring every nook and cranny, which are filled with hidden puzzles and other surprises.
3 – What Remains of Edith Finch (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC):
4 – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch):
5 – Persona 5 (PlayStation 4):
6 – Cuphead (Xbox One, PC):
7 – PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds (PC, Xbox One):
8 – Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Nintendo Switch):
You’ve just stepped out of Peach’s castle ready to embark on a new quest. You travel between worlds using magical pipes, crushing enemies and gathering coins along the way. Sound like a typical Super Mario Bros. game? Mario + Rabbids is a strategic roleplaying game that requires players masterfully maneuver their way through colorful chess-like levels, smiting enemies to reach their goal. It’s a bizarre, delightful and surprisingly difficult take on a Mario game. At its core, Mario + Rabbids involves turn-based battles of a piece with archetypal games like X-COM: UFO Defense and Jagged Alliance. Your party can consist of a mix of classic Mario characters working alongside Rabbids cosplaying familiar faces like Luigi and Peach. Like the best strategy games, Mario + Rabbids invites casual players to the party, then ratchets up its challenges.
9 – Horizon Zero Dawn (PlayStation 4):
10 – Destiny 2 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC):
