E3 is just around the corner, meaning we're only days away from being inundated with information about new games, new system updates, Project Scorpio specs, the whole shebang. But rather than look forward, for this week's Big Question I'd like to look back.
We're almost halfway done with the year, and there's been plenty of standout releases so far. More people bought the Legend of Zelda on the Switch in the US than the actual Switch itself. Horizon: Zero Dawn has been a massive winner for Sony and Guerrilla Games. Some Aussie games have had a good run as well, with Hollow Knight praised up hill and down dale.
You've got fan favourites as well that have delivered on their mission statements: Wildlands did exactly what most Ghost Recon fans wanted, and Mario Kart on the Switch has all the blue shell nightmares that people know and love. Japan's been well represented too: Nioh and NieR: Automata have gone down a treat, as has Persona 5 and Yakuza 0. Everyone also got a taste of one of the best remasters in years as well, with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.
All in all, it's been a good year.
But what have you enjoyed the most? Was it something released in 2017, or something older?
