Best of 2017 Awards.jpg

We will be taking a break at the end of this week to celebrate Christmas with our family and friends but before we go off we want to share our thoughts on the best games, and one really bad one, that we played in 2017. The Best of 2017 Awards marks the greatest in gaming from the past 12 months and we are all so grateful that we got the opportunity to play them. Of course, there is the Game of the Year Award which is no doubt the biggest one of them all and to win that, the game had to be truly a masterpiece. Voting for these awards was done by all the writers for GameZone so that the decisions were fair. Without further ado, here are the best of 2017. 

Game of the Year 2017

There was no doubt that Super Mario Odyssey won over our hearts in 2017. First playing it at E3, I knew the game would be something special and when the time came to review it I was not wrong. It is a masterpiece and one of Nintendo's greatest games since Super Mario Galaxy. There will not be another game that comes close to the charm and perfection found in Mario Odyssey and I am so blessed to have played it.
