For #4 this year, it came down to two very different games. One was the start of a brand new franchise, while the other was an attempt to win over new fans on an old one. For me, I went with the one that actually made me take a look at something new.
For #5 this year, we have the game that made me laugh the most while playing it.
For my #6 game of 2017, we have one that really came out of left field to surprise me.
For number seven of my best of 2017 list, we turn to a game that came out right at the start of the year, but managed to be a great example of one of my favorite talks on game design.
