In our special edition, we’ll show you the top ten award-winning games that still managed to stand out from the crowd – here are our top ten PC games of 2017! We’ll be releasing plenty of other specials over the holidays: which games were the brightest on PS4, which games really disappointed us? We start with our big 2017 special edition of the top ten games for betwinner crypto casino
Godhood: Original Sin 2
We have Belgian Larian Studios to thank for the best RPG of the year. Divinity: Original Sin 2 combines a hugely detailed world with incredible gameplay freedom, elaborate tactical battle rounds, a gripping storyline full of decisions, great characters, high replayability and, and, and. If you take 80 hours with you, you’ll have an RPG highlight for Divinity: Original Sin 2 connoisseurs that easily outshines even Pillars of Eternity .
Battlefields of Playerunknown
What once started as a mod for Arma 2 has now become a successful concept of the year: Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds, which was developed from scratch, has dominated the Steam charts since March 2017 and has already sold over 24 million copies. In Battlegrounds, you and up to 100 other players land on a remote island. What follows is a hard-fought battle for survival, in which you first find shelter and equipment and then use empty ammunition against your enemies. It’s clever, tactical and damn entertaining – there’s no end in sight to the success, especially as the multiplayer hit has now conquered Xbox One too.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Ones
The core XCOM 2 game already offered clear turn-based tactics, but with the addition of War of the Chosen it gets a lot more exciting. New soldier types, additional enemies, new missions, revised research and numerous detail improvements make War of the Chosen a must-have add-on for XCOM fans, which we warmly recommend despite the high purchase price.
Even if Cuphead wasn’t fun at all, it still deserves an award because the stunningly detailed cartoonish presentation is simply one of the most beautiful things you could play on PC this year. Thankfully, Cups Adventure has a lot to offer in terms of gameplay: you can expect smooth Contra-style 2D action, in which you have to deal with surprisingly creative and bloody tricky bosses. It’s great fun alone or with a co-op partner – as long as you don’t let the high level of difficulty put you off.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
If you’re not interested in multiplayer and expect a gripping story from a shooter, then Wolfenstein 2 is the best choice this year. The single-player shooter about elite soldier BJ Blaskovich shines with great characters, quality action sequences and tense firefights as you defend yourself against the Nazi regime in an alternate 1961. Although the German version has been lightly censored, Wolfenstein 2 is convincing as a heartfelt and quirky adult baller.
Total War: Warhammer 2
Just a year and a half after Total War: Warhammer, Creative Assembly is already releasing the successor – and it’s really good: you get all the strengths of its predecessor plus some useful innovations; above all, a motivating campaign, a perfectly rendered Warhammer atmosphere, a great strategy map, stunning graphics and scale made our testers’ hearts beat faster. Owners of the predecessor will also enjoy the free Mortal Empires DLC , which combines the campaign maps of both games into a huge strategy sandbox.
Forza Motorsport 7
Forza Motorsport 7 successfully balances simulation and fast arcade racing . 700 unlockable bogies, 32 tracks, plenty of improvement mechanisms, a motivating career mode and online multiplayer all result in a packed racing game package that offers weeks and months of gaming fun. The racer can also convince technically thanks to excellent driving physics, dynamic weather effects, beautiful tracks, detailed cars and chic cockpits. Thus, Forza Motorsport 7 racing fans are a clear recommendation, only those expecting a truly challenging simulation will get a little better service in this year’s Project Cars 2.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
In Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the makers of Enslaved Ninja Theory break new ground and inspire with an emotional and audiovisually intoxicating narrative that allows us to delve deep into the human psyche. In this dark action-adventure film, you accompany a Celtic warrior on her journey into the dead world of the Vikings. There she must not only fight devilish creatures, but above all she must deal with her inner demons – as the mentally broken heroine is plagued by severe psychosis and delirium. Ninja Theory did a lot of research to portray mental illness, and the effort paid off: Hellblade is a smart and tense action game with a charmingly believable heroine.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
After a long creative hiatus, Assassin’s Creed finally manages to relaunch its long-awaited reboot: in the latest offshoot, Assassin’s Creed: Origins , we first explore the magnificent ancient Egypt and encounter the fascinating tale of the founding of the Assassin Brotherhood there. Ubisoft spices up the old concept with so many innovations that it almost becomes an RPG. So you level up your hero over time, develop skills through a talent tree, and regularly collect new equipment of varying degrees of rarity. A new, more tactical combat system, exciting side quests, successful stealth mechanics and a gigantic world make Assassin’s Creed Origins one of the best open-world adventures of the year.
Although Destiny originated on consoles, the second installment is best suited to the PC. The great firefighting gets even better with the mouse, and the technology has also been well implemented. So PC players can also enjoy a successful campaign and a motivating hunt for new gear. With plenty of side quests, decent PvP and co-op combat missions, Destiny 2 has offered plenty of content for weeks of fun since release, but the endgame is only truly revealed in the fresh Leviathan raid. While we’d love to see significantly more social features and better raid retrieval, Destiny 2 is also the real highlight of the shooter on PC – a console exclusive predecessor .Let’s not shed a tear on PC.
