Countdown to 2018: Favorite Video Games Released in 2017!

Power up Players for Countdown week on GamersUnitedGG! We are nearing the end of the year and have experienced another fantastic year of video games, movies and interests. Before we catalogue this year in our memories, we will be counting down the top moments of the year! To start off the week of countdowns, we’re going to start with the premise of the blog, video games! We have been asking around and will list our top video games of 2017 in descending order from number 5 to our favorite game of the year!

#5 Call of Duty World War II – cod

Call of Duty World War II comes at the bottom of the list for me. While I am happy to finally have played a COD game after a few years hiatus, WWII wasn’t as grand as I thought it would be. I believe it is because I wasn’t really a fan of World at War and WWII is supposed to be a sort of sequel to that game. The old school style guns and maps are just not appealing to me, but the game is still fun so it made my list!

#4 Golf It – Golf-It-Free-Download

Golf It is a mini golf game (similar to Golf With Friends) where you will play as the golf ball! I like this game because you can change the appearance of your golf ball like adding on hats or changing the color. This game is an adventure, sandbox type game where the community can create maps for you to download. Golf it is super fun and I’ve been playing a few times a week with my friends (this will be a game featured on the YouTube channel next year).

#3 Destiny 2 – destiny3

D2 is my first experience with Destiny as I did not play the original Destiny game. I just didn’t find it appealing, but after being worn down by my friends, I picked up Destiny 2 about a week after it’s release. You can review my First Impressions post by clicking here! I really enjoyed D2 and the variety of game modes gave it a better rating in my opinion.

#2 Final Fantasy XIV Online – final

I have just recently purchased Final Fantasy XIV Online (First Impressions Post coming soon). FFXIV is a MMORPG game where you are battling bosses, fulfilling quests and leveling your characters to become a great savior! Sooo pretty much another RPG game. What I love about FF so far is that it offers soooo many missions and character classes that you can play. I am playing as an Arcanist but I think I will upgrade to a Summoner soon. This is my first experience with a Final Fantasy game and I am enjoying the ride so far. Plus Chocobos!!!!!!

#1 Halo Wars 2 – halo-wars-banner

My number 1 game for 2017 has to be Halo Wars 2 hands down! I was super excited when I found out that HW2 was being released on the Xbox One, so much so that I traded in my original Xbox One and bought the Halo Wars 2 Xbox One S bundle! Best purchase of my life! The new Xbox runs smoother, is white (which I wanted instead of the standard black one), is slimmer and just beautiful! You can read my review of Halo Wars 2 by clicking here! I really enjoyed the strategy game and I still play it to this day (it was released in February). If you have played HW2, I also wrote a First Impressions and Tips post!

Those are my top games played that were released in 2017. Let’s hear from some of our blogging buddies:

Drakulus- Top 5 games of 2017 are  Divinity: Original Sin 2, Wolfeinstein 2, Mass Effect: Andromeda, The Elder Scrolls Legends, and For Honor. Read the review on why and the top 10 games that made the list by clicking here!

Lightning Ellen – Top 5 games didn’t really make her list because she didn’t play 5 games in 2017 lol! She did give her insight on her top 2 games which are Hellblade and Horizon Zero Dawn!

    • It’s super fun! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not but I am having a great time! WWII was fun for a bit but I really don’t like the setting or guns which is why I never played World At War. Golf It is super fun. We just played a Video Game Trivia map the other night and it was super fun. I recorded the game so I will upload it to YouTube this month. Thank you for reading and Happy New Year!

  1. I’ve played quite a lot of games last year but can’t really remember which ones were released. But I am looking forward to tons of new games this year with Far Cry 5 and God of War being at the top of the list!

    • Awesome! I wanted to play Far Cry 4 when it released but alas I didn’t get around to it. God of War looks amzing and I’m sure Far Cry will be great as well. I’m looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2, Kingdom Come and Kingdom Hearts 3 which hopefully will release this year. Thank you for sharing!
