USgamer Community Question: What Game Are You Most Excited For in 2017?

What game gets first dibs at your wallet this year?

Article by USgamer Team, .

Welcome to the next level of the millennium. The year is still brand-spankin' new, but there's already more than enough hype for the games we're supposed to see in 2017.

If all goes according to plan, we'll make friends with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, Destiny 2, and Super Mario for the Switch, just to name a few. Which game are you looking forward to playing most through the Year of the Rooster?

Jeremy Parish Ex-Parrot

In the short term, I'm most excited about Gravity Rush 2. The original was so good! And despite my love of handheld systems, I'm really eager to see what Sony Japan Studio can do with this concept once they're free from the relative limitations of the Vita.

But that being said, the game that I'm most eager to play in 2017 — knowing Bloodstained has been delayed until next year and that Dragon Quest XI will be lucky to see a localization into English any time sooner than, say, 2019 — would unquestionably be Etrian Odyssey V. Atlus hasn't actually announced the game for the U.S. despite it shipping in Japan half a year ago, which would normally seem a bad sign. Etrian games usually show up here about six months after their Japanese launch, but so far we've heard nothing… which, combined with the "on life support" status of the 3DS platform, suggests dire things. Hopefully, though, Atlus has just been head down on the massive localization commitment required for Persona 5 and will get back to business as usual once that's out of the way.

I've been a fan of Etrian Odyssey since I first sampled a pre-release ROM of the original DS game back in… whoa, was a decade ago? Indeed. I didn't think I liked dungeon crawler RPGs up until that point, so I didn't really expect anything from Etrian Odyssey. I mainly sampled it because I had made it a point to play and cover every DS RPG I could get my hands on, and because a good friend of mine helped localize it. But then I played it and was blown away by how well it all fit together: The party customization, the crisp visuals, the extraordinary FM synthesis soundtrack by Yuzo Koshiro, and above all: The need to draw a map.

Some people hate the fact that the Etrian games force you to draw out a dungeon map on a sheet of virtual graph paper, but let's share some real talk for a second: Those people are insane. That's easily the best part of Etrian Odyssey, a built-in throwback to the days before auto-maps and GameFAQs, and it really brings the entire experience together. The games have undergone considerable refinement since that first outing for DS, and Etrian V looks like it could be the best of the bunch so far (even if it does abandon the fourth game's wonderful overworld exploration).

Etrian V introduces new classes, new party skills, new dungeons, new character races that help define the specialities and makeup of your guild, and more. It also has some optional character portraits that break from the series' standard designs, such as the amazing Rabbit Grandma (a demihuman Hunter class option). Unlike Etrian IV, it also provides an alternate soundtrack so you can enjoy Koshiro's new compositions in their original FM synthesis arrangements. It's entirely possible Etrian V would end up being the final major RPG release for 3DS in America, and I can't think of a more fitting finale to the series… especially since the imminent demise of handheld gaming means the Etrian games (which revolve around manual mapping on a portable touch screen) may not have a future. What more satisfying blaze of glory for both system and series, eh?

With Gran Turismo Sport, Forza Motorsport 7, and Project CARS 2 all expected to appear during the next twelve months, 2017 is certainly shaping up to be a great year for racing fans. I wrote about the two former games earlier this week, and made it very clear that I'm excited about both of them for different reasons. More details about Project CARS 2 emerged this week and it also sounds very promising. I'm particularly interested in the fact that the game will feature Rallycross events - high-speed races that take place on mixed-surface tracks comprised of both tarmac and dirt. That should add a whole new dimension to the game's racing - Rallycross cars are incredibly powerful, and I imagine they'll be a real handful to drive, which should make for some very entertaining and challenging competition.

Choosing one game from this awesome-sounding trio is tough, but in the end I think I'm ever-so-slightly more excited about Gran Turismo Sport than the other two. Despite it featuring the lowest number of cars and tracks since the very first Gran Turismo game, I'm really interested to see just how good the final product will be. The game has been built from the ground up specifically for PS4, and features no legacy code or assets, meaning that it's essentially an all-new game. The early demo I played at E3 last year drove very well indeed, and looked fantastic - but according to Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi only represented 70% of what the final game will be. I can't wait to see what it'll look like with that extra polish and finesse.

But what really intrigues me is that Gran Turismo Sport will feature FIA-sanctioned races, and a comprehensive training mode that'll enable you to learn proper racing etiquette and behavior - to the point where if you score highly enough on its tests, you'll be able to earn yourself a real-life racing license. That's something no racing game has done before, and I'm incredibly interested to see how it'll work.

It's coming back! After being able to look forward to annual releases of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed, 2017 marked the first time that the publisher wanted to pump the brakes on an annual release. AC went away for a year to give the team behind the latest game a chance to rethink the franchise and its place in our industry.

I've talked about something called the 'shackles of success' before. It's the idea that given a major, successful franchise, most creators will attempt to stay in their lane. They may rejigger mechanics slightly and choose a new coat of paint, but it's equally important that your existing fanbase can pick up your project and get something that fulfills their expectations. Diverge too much and you risk alienating that fanbase (see Resident Evil fans who say Resident Evil VII isn't "Resident Evil" enough), diverge too little and you'll bore them.

Major works can only really break those shackles after a period of great weakness or backlash. In Ubisoft's case, while Assassin's Creed Syndicate was a better game than its predecessor, Assassin's Creed Unity, the sales trend was downward. Stopping this curve allows a creator the chance to actually step back, really look at a franchise, and ask, "What's wrong here?"

If my speculation and mental math is correct, the team behind AC 2017 is the same one that crafted the excellent Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Given the extra time and more leeway from Ubisoft, I hope that they can craft something that stands up to the best in the series. Either way, all I see is possibilities at this point, meaning it's my most anticipated game of the year.

Well I've only been waiting for Persona 5 for eight years now, so...

But in all seriousness, Persona 5 is looking really great. I had the chance to play the Japanese release and I was blown away by its music, its presentation, its pace, and the quality of its battle system. There is every indication that it will be the successor to Persona 4 Golden that we've been waiting for.

Persona continues to have that special something that other RPGs can't replicate: Its unique day-by-day structure, its deep but also fast-paced turn-based combat, its relationships. Some people might be put off by how unapologetically Japanese it is, but there's universal appeal to the way that it approaches themes likes growing up and figuring yourself out.

I called Persona 4 Golden the best RPG of the past 15 years, and I stand by that assertion. But it may soon have some competition in Persona 5...

Breath of the Wild, man. Breath of the Wild. I've said so many words about this game, yet when the topic comes up, I have no problem opening my mouth and letting my guts pour out.

I'm a mega-Zelda fan, which is reason enough to be excited for Breath of the Wild. There are other reasons, though: I can fling myself off cliffs and soar across Hyrule, climb mountains, hop on the backs of wild horses (safety not guaranteed). Of course, I can also indulge in the Zelda series' most popular activity: Swinging my weapon at any problem that gets in my way.

I don't think I've been this hyped for a Zelda game since I waited on Ocarina of Time as a teenager. That game gave me a real sense of adventure, and it's tiny by today's standards. I don't know how I'll handle Breath of the Wild. I might die of a joy overload. If that's how I go out, just know I couldn't have chosen a better death. Nice working with you all.

    I agree with Jeremy's pick. I'm actually playing through the first DS game at the moment. Graphics are rather creaky by today's standards but boy, everything else about this wonderful series was there from the start.

    Distant second: I'm really intrigued by this mario/rabbids crossover rpg. I'm hoping it's made using the UbiArt engine (Child of Light/Rayman Origins), and is really wacky/French. Could be a disaster though. An exciting high-risk move on Nintendo's part!Edited last month by sjpt1986

    Ys 8. Falcom always delivers with fast gameplay, epic and difficult bosses, and great music.

    I want Zelda to be good, but it's the largest game Nintendo's ever made, and I think there will be some open world design growing pains.
    Scalebound and Nioh after that.

    Mine would have to be Zelda. I'm simply incredibly curious to see Nintendo's take on an open world, and excited about Zelda returning to free exploration.

    But there are many games I can't wait to play in 2017, not least smaller games, like The Iconoclasts.

    Nioh.

    The demos felt like pure love and the most competent thing that I've seen by any other company attempting a Souls-inspired framework.

    Kat's pick, Persona 5, is so close behind it.

    I have to go with Persona 5.

    Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Horizon: Zero Dawn (sheesh, all these colons), Resident Evil 7, Nier: Automata, the new Ys all look great, but.... there's nothing I am as excited to play as Persona 5. There's just nothing like that series.

    Unless Detroit: Become Human (another colon!) comes out this year. Then that.

    It's either Horizon or Red Dead Redemption 2 for me, can't choose between them. It's always tough to answer these questions by naming just a single game. I'll also mention GT Sport, Forza 7, and the second wave of VR games, such as Resident Evil 7, Far Point and Ace Combat 7.

    I would say The Bard's Tale IV, but I'm guessing that won't be released this year. I'll have to go with Mario Switch. I'm assuming we'll be able to use that Pro controller they showed in the Switch trailer and it will be nice to finally play a console Mario game with a normal controller. Shout-out to Chasm, I have high hopes.

    Since Kat already mentioned P5, I'll go with the other game tied for my top "most excited" spot: NieR:Automata.

    First of all, I can't believe Yoko Taro managed to convince the higher ups at Squeenix to fund another NieR title. The Drakengard series and the first NieR didn't exactly set the world on fire sales wise. The man either has a silver tongue or some incredibly ardent fans at the top of the food chain. Secondly, I can't believe whoever gave Automata the green light was also smart enough to hire Platinum. Finally! A Yoko Taro title where the gameplay won't suck!

    @chaoticBeat I second your Nioh pick.

    I disagree that the game is trying to work with a Souls like frame work... Team Ninja has a history of making fast paced, difficult, but fair action games. I don't think Nioh is out of their wheelhouse.

    Since Persona 5 and Zelda Breath of the Wild have been mentioned, I will add Cosmic Star Heroine and Rainbow Skies to the list.

    Rainbow Moon was a terrific SRPG and Rainbow Skies looks to be shaping up as a worthy successor. As for Cosmic Star Heroine, the gameplay looks better with the release of each new preview video and I am hoping that we will hear an updated release date soon.

    Persona 5 tops my list, although I do wish that that the Switch rumor was true. Persona 4 Golden had me glued to my Vita, but I can't remember the last home console JRPG that had the same effect.

    Second would be Valkyria Revolution. Like everyone else, I'm not convinced that this detour will be worth taking (I'm trying to keep an open mind), but I'm happy that I'll be able to play the game without importing. Mass Effect: Andromeda sits in a similar position of uncertainty. Nothing we've seen is convincing me that I need to purchase the game immediately, but I was a pretty big fan of the trilogy.

    There's a lot to look forward to. I'm hoping we'll get a US release of the next Sega Classics Collection announced soon. I'm also excited for Gravity Rush 2, the PS4 version of Ys VIII (hopefully we'll get a US release this year), Mario on the Switch, Sonic 2017, the new Pikmin game(s), 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Dragon Quest XI, Etrian Odyssey V, Bloodstained, new IPs from good developers, and whatever SNK, M2, Indieszero, and Falcom do next.

    @tylerdesrosiers We could debate this endlessly but know that I have a great amount of respect for Team Ninja. Nioh is definitely within their scope of action games, they are the House of Ninja Gaiden (Black). But it's hard to deny that Souls did not influence the game's current state. I don't mean this as any type of insult to the developer. I think that they are one of the few developers good enough to produce a game of this quality. An actual Souls successor, coming from a different developer than From, is the highest praise I could give any developer.

    Ha, while I enjoy Jeremy's real talk and Zelda seems like the right answer, the new 3D Mario I know we're getting would be the game I'd play first if all the games of 2017 were laid out in front of me right now. I just can't resist.

    I'm actually really looking forward to Dragon Quest VIII coming out for the 3DS in a couple of weeks. I missed it when it originally came out for the PS2, and I only just started to really get into the Dragon Quest series this past year. So I'm excited to try this out.

    Further down the road I'm also looking forward to Etrian Odyssey V and the Legend of Zelda.

    I'll definitely be spending the most time with FFXIV's expansion, Stormblood. But what I really want, what I've been wanting since I sampled a fan-localized copy of the international edition, and since remasters started trending, and since SE did such a great job with FFX... FFXII HD.

    Dare we hope for the first episodes of FFVII to start releasing this year? And if rumors are true, there should be a slew of re-releases for the 30th anniversary, and I'll happily re-play them... a good year to be a FF fan.

    Also, no love for Red Dead Redemption 2? I'm totally prepared for Rockstar to blow us all away again.

    Plenty of other games I'm excited to play, but those are the only ones I'm truly excited enough to play when they release.

    It'd have to be Nier for me - the demo was promising, and I have no doubt that everything that surrounds the excellent gameplay will be bizarre and compelling.

    Close tie between that and Nioh though - as @chaoticBeat says, its a real credit to Team Ninja that they've managed to pull this off.Edited last month by VotesForCows

    Realistically speaking I'll probably spend early 2017 picking up some titles I wanted but missed in 2016 (The Last Guardian, World of Final Fantasy, and Stardew Valley are my priority, give or take PSN sales), but the 2017 games I'm most likely to get at or around Day One are NieR Automata and Yooka-Laylee.

    If I had to pick one, it would be Zelda.

    If it had to be a less obvious pick, I'll take For Honor, which I suspect is going to do poorly because so few people seem to know what it actually is and instead think it's a MOBA of some kind.

    I guess I am less of an optimist then most. If the Switch does indeed launch Spring of this year, I fully expect EO V to stay Japan exclusive unless it is ported to the Switch by some sort of witch craft (or digital emulation as some of these folk call it). A shame because I do enjoy the series a great deal, but I fear unless they are able to do something genius with the Switch design the emulates touch screen capabilities even in dock form the series as we know it is no more.

    Aside from Breath of the Wild and Persona 5, I really am hoping something else is hidden out there because while 2016 was RPG heavy to the point I am still playing catch up, I really want something else to blow this year wide open as saying awesome come the end of the year but I can't think of what it could be.

    I have yet to hear of any game I'd be interested in, except maybe the inevitable Just Dance 2018 (and I'm not joking). Most AAA titles not from Blizzard won't run on any of my systems and Blizzard has yet to make I like to play.

    It's the indie titles that are the ones I care for at this time, and those don't often have a hype campaign in advance.

    So yeah - the games I'm most looking forward to playing are either indies in 2017 or released in 2015 or earlier.

    Under normal circumstances I'd probably be agreeing with Jeremy, for most of the same reasons (except the personal reasons for getting EO1). Unfortunately there isn't a release date for the West, and I don't want to jinx it.

    So my pick is Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo franchieses have formulas that they build for themselves and then follow--until all at once they break with that tradition. By ditching series tradition BotW gets back the ability to do something new, and thus upholds the series' greater tradition of adventure.

    I'm having a really hard time psyching myself up for Zelda: BotW because of the crafting system and seemingly barren open areas. Super Mario Switch, on the other hand, excites me to no end- just the prospect of returning to the flawless control and behind-the-back camera of SM64 and Sunshine is enough to get me on board.

    @Vanderdulpp I hope it brings back some of SMW, where the world itself takes on some character and feels like a cohesive and evolving place. I really missed that in 3D Land/World, where the levels are great, but feel completely independent from the world map.

    @Vanderdulpp I agree. A lot of Zelda games are already too slow-paced for me. I'm not looking forward to hunting down random drops to fuse together enough ingredients to complete quests, if that's what they've got planned. One of the reasons I can like Zelda games when they're done well is if everything feels like it was designed very carefully. (and you only have to figure it out once.) I'm curious to see whether an open world with a cooking system will fit that bill. A Link Between Worlds was great; I'd definitely like another Zelda game if it captures the same pace and feel.

    As I mentioned in another article, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’m also interested in other games coming out in 2017 (Persona 5, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier Automata, Red Dead Redemption 2, Nioh, Injustice 2, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Sea of Thieves, Mass Effect Andromeda, For Honor, Little Nightmares), but it’s unlikely I will play any of them this year.

    @hiptanaka that would be a really nice touch! DKC: Tropical Freeze is the last game I can think of that really nailed that. Easier in 2D than 3D, probably.
    @Sturat I'm right there with you- though one of the great things that we've seen from BotW so far is that there isn't a drawn-out tutorial, which is a welcome change! I'm curious, what made Link Between Worlds stand apart from the entries you didn't like?

    Can I just say the Nintendo Switch in general?

    If I'm choosing a game for real, while I would love to say something unique, it's Zelda. The only game I can see replacing that would be "Super Mario Switch" if it really is the spiritual successor to 64 and Sunshine that it's rumored to be.

    But in an overall way, the thing about video games that has me most excited this year is the Switch.

    Wow it really is hard to pick one, as I'm excited about several this year.

    Probably in this order:

    Persona 5
    Mass Effect Andromeda
    Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild

    Others:
    Nier Automata (that demo was really cool)
    Ghost Recon: Wildlands
    Torment: Tides of Numenera
    Divinity Original Sin 2

    Definitely Zelda BOTW. The last two home console releases (twilight and skyward) are my least favorite entries in my favorite series, although I love a link between worlds, and I couldn't be more excited about the direction it looks to be taking. A new 3D Mario after what feels like an eternity also has be crazy hyped. Beyond that I'm looking forward to dq 8, I've been playing dq 7 since its 3ds release and I've been loving it, it's my first time playing a dq game. Given that I've been playing it for 4 months straight I'm gonna need a bit of a break before I dive into 8

    I'm excited for Persona 5 but I'm most curious about Birthdays the Beginning, the new game from Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada. I'm also looking forward to playing Stardew Valley on the Switch.

    @Vanderdulpp I liked that A Link Between Worlds felt very compact and fast-paced. The forced perspective made it so you never had to stop what you're doing and go into first-person mode to look for hidden platforms, switches, etc, and I really appreciate that the game never made you replay five minutes as punishment for a missed jump. (This irks me in almost all 3D games, but it's especially egregious in Zelda if you have to redo five minutes of work every time you want to try a possible solution to a puzzle that involves jumping.)

    Even though I'm tired of waiting, it's got to be Persona 5. Trails in the Sky the Third, Horizon, and Nier look great too.

    I'm sure EO V will be announced soon. The real question is does Atlus squeeze out a remake for 3 before the 3DS is put to bed.

    I don't buy new releases. Most games plummet in price after a year, and I have a huge backlog anyway. But if Borderlands 3 releases I may have to break my own rule.

    Assassin's Creed. Really? Of all the games coming out this year, Assassin's Flaming Creed?

    Can I do games, instead of just one game? :P

    Seriously though, I've very excited for the incoming Yakuza games, Zelda Switch and Persona 5. :)

    Especially Persona 5 ;)

    I 100% am behind Kat's pick. I want to play through P4Golden again, but SMT IV: Apocalypse currently has my attention.

    Based on what I know for sure is coming out, Dragon Quest VIII.

    Based on my own wishful thinking, I would love the last volume of Sega 3D Classics Collection in Japan to make it's way over here.

    I have to wait and see what the rest of this year will reveal before I can get truly excited beyond that.

    For me it's definitely Zelda followed by the Final Fantasy XII HD remaster. Mass Effect also looks good.
