    The games he made with Sega were incredible, but the games made with Prope have been unremarkable. Prope is a very small studio of 40 people though. Rail shooters like Rodea are such an old-fashioned and limited genre that I don't think anyone should be developing rail shooters these days. Unless it's for VR, where they can still feel fresh and make an impact.

    I still occasionally play the superb 2010 reboot. It's one of those games I've played so much that I happen to nearly have the platinum trophy despite never attempting to get any trophies in the game.

    Looks like the Switch's 2018 will be mostly ports and remasters. I think ports and remasters are okay as a supplement to a console's release schedule, but without strong new original games, I could see the Switch having some difficulty sustaining its momentum in 2018.

    I'd like an og trilogy-based PSVR Star Wars game, with X-Wing sections, FPS sections using the AIM controller and lightsaber battles using the Move controller.

    Also, a Panzer Dragoon remake for VR and BloodBorne 2 as a PS5 launch game. Then I'd like Sony to digitally release some of the missing PS1 and PSP classics on the Vita - games like R-Types, Gradius Collection, Ultimate Ghosts & Goblins and Wipeout XL. And Revenge of Shinobi HD.Edited 2 times. Last edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    "Where can you really go with the next platform that will wow players? Folks are just now getting 4K televisions en masse, so moving onto 8K isn't a draw for a mass market product."

    VR and AR are probably where a lot of the wow-factor is going to be from now on. Gen 2 VR games on the PS5 will be awesome. But I feel there's still lots of room for regular games to also improve. Last year I played some HDR-enabled PS4 games on a HDR Premium certified TV and I was impressed by what a difference it made visually.

    With so many PS4 games coming in 2018 and the PS4 selling incredibly well, I don't think Sony will talk about the PS5 this year. Q4 2019 looks like the earliest possible release date for it. I'm hoping for a clean break generational transition, as that would help fully realize the potential of the new console.

    If I could select one game to be announced for the PS4, it would be either a Ridge Racer 1-5 remaster collection or a brand new Ridge Racer game. Sony has been remastering basically most of their back catalogue in recent times, but some defining PS1 and PS2 era games like the Ridge Racers and the early Wipeout games still remain on the wishlist. RR is a Namco series though.

    Bloodstained, Catherine and the Secret of Mana remake are some of the 2018 Vita games I'm looking forward to. Hopefully there will also be some surprise Vita releases or announcements in 2018, like last year's surprise Vita port of Undertale.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    Nintendo announced in mid-December that the Switch had sold 10M units worldwide. In any case, their next quarterly report is out in a couple of weeks and will provide the updated regional figures.

    I'd also like to see 3DS support being continued in 2018. A Switch Mini would be nice too - a true handheld version of the Switch with non-detachable JoyCons and a Vita-esque slick form factor.

    Plus, a gritty and dark Ice Climbers reboot.

    PS2 didn't have a huge debut year, as there weren't many big games available for it in the first 12-18 months. About 10 million PS2s were shipped globally between March 2000 - March 2001. Ridge Racer V, SSX, Tekken Tag Tournament, TimeSplitters, Madden 2001 and Onimusha were probably the biggest games of that first year. Some were buying PS2s as DVD players in the early days.

    It wasn't until Q4 2001, when an avalanche of blockbuster PS2 games was released, that the console's sales really took off. PS2 shipments in the second fiscal year doubled compared to the previous year and the console had multiple huge years in a row after that, as well as legendary longevity.

    Resident Evil 7 VR was easily my GotY. The sheer visual impact and the feeling of being inside the game, being inside that horrible farmhouse is amazing. The equally impressive Batman VR was my GotY last year, but RE7 goes a step further and delivers an entire AAA game in VR and not just a 2-hour experience.

    Other than that my 2017 list remains a work-in-progress due to the amount of this year's games I've yet to play. Breath of the Wild and Horizon would currently be #2 and #3 on my list. I initially had Horizon at #2 due to its superior combat mechanics and enthralling story, but I've ended up putting more hours into Zelda, which is a more unique and varied game. I've really enjoyed some of the late-game content like chasing and upgrading the various armor sets and cool side quests like Tarrey Town and the Master Sword quest. I haven't played the Frozen Wilds DLC yet though and that might tip the scales in favor of Horizon again.

    The rest of my top 10 is: Sonic Mania, GT Sport, Persona 5, Yakuza 0, Cuphead, Nex Machina and Farpoint VR. Farpoint gets my "gnarliest of 2017" mention. Battling giant space bugs and occasionally getting eaten by them in virtual reality was pretty terrifying.Edited 2 times. Last edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What are Your Top 10 Games of 2017?

  • Avatar for SuperShinobi SuperShinobi A month ago

    PS4 this year had one of the best years of any console ever. So many great games that it was hard to keep up. MetManMas already did a good list and I 'd add Nex Machina, Edith Finch and Pyre - three more highly-rated PS4 console exclusives of 2017. Resident Evil 7 was an impressive flagship game for the PSVR.

    Nintendo also had a great year with the Switch, one of the best debut years of any console. Breath of the Wild is truly a killer app for the Switch, such an engrossing game.Edited 5 weeks ago by Unknown
