Prepare your joysticks, keyboards, smartphones, or what-have-yous because we listed down some of the most interesting video games of 2017.
10 of the Most Interesting Games Worth Saving Up For This 2017
Updated Nintendo fans have probably heard of the upcoming Nintendo game “Arms” since it’s one of the launch titles of the much-awaited Nintendo Switch console. “Arms” is a quirky, animated boxing game that utilizes the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-con controllers. Players will be able to choose and customize characters with extendable arms and fight with players in arenas. Judging from the launch trailer, it looks really exciting.
9. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil 6 was a little off-base from the whole Resident Evil series, but it looks like Capcom is back with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. RE7 will have a new protagonist and new setting (things have gone far, far away from Raccoon City), and will take place 4 years after RE6. Unlike previous RE games, RE7 will be played in first-person, so get your scare pants on because it’s going to be a scary game! RE 7 comes out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC — add in your PSVR for an extra scare.
8. Gravity Rush 2
Once a PS Vita exclusive title, Gravity Rush 2 completely ditches the Vita and comes out on the Vita’s big bro PS4 for more gravity-controlling action. Gravity Rush 2 picks up where Gravity Rush left, with Protagonist Kat and her friend Raven dealing with a gravitational whirlpool that takes them to new places. If you’ve played Gravity Rush on the Vita before, it’s allegedly twice the fun with GR2.
7. Dragon Quest 8: Journey of the Cursed King
Square Enix’s Dragon Quest VIII originally came out on PS2 back in 2004 and with its open-world gameplay and interesting storyline, it was one of the most impressive games of the early 2000s. Now, DQ8 is ported into the 3DS with equally stunning visuals, storyline, and game mechanics, bringing back the enjoyment of the original game. DQ8 also utilizes the 3DS camera for some photography missions, a great way to bring a 13-year-old classic into the trend.
6. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
It’s not the much awaited Kingdom Hearts 3; but true to its name, it’s a prologue to Kingdom Hearts 3. KH 2.8 is a remastered version of “Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance”, which came out on the 3DS in 2012. “Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover”, an hour or so-long cinematic retelling of Kingdom Hearts X (The KH mobile game), reveals more of the series’ history, and “Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage” is an extended story of the PSP game “Birth By Sleep” following Aqua during her time in the realm of darkness. All stories intertwine and share important plot points to prepare gamers for KH3.
