Most played Games in 2017

Another year, another “best-of” List. , I’m not going to list the best games of 2017, as I haven’t played every Game I’d like to (yes I’m looking at you Super Mario Odyssey)

Also, my Pile of shame has reached  a new record . For these reasons you’ll find many Games released in 2016 (or even before) on this list.

We  start the list with a few Games  I started playing in 2016, and got to finish during 2017:


Mad Max
Another Open-World Game, this time set in the Apocalyptic World of Mad Max. The Game captures the Look ‘n Feel of the Movies, and provided me tons of fun driving around in my V8 looking for Upgrades.
Paper Mario Color Splash
Although Critics were pretty hard on this one, I enjoyed it playing it together with my son, helping out the (silly&dumb) Toad Rescue Squad.
Shovel Knight
Shovel Knight might simply 1 of my  all-time favorites. i play it every year. This year I particulary enjoyed plaing Specter’s Knight Cmapaign, which I found to be almost better as the Main Campaign.
Zelda Breath of the Wild
Simply put, the Best Zelda game ever made! It’s a modern open-word defining game that plays exactly like the first Zelda on NES.
Forza Horizon 3
Excellent “Open-World” Racing Game with  fun challenges.
Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap
Finally, after more then 25 years I was able to play and enjoy this masterpiece of a Game.
Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death
Excellent Hack ‘n Slash Game in the traditions of a God of War. Silly and over-the-top action.
Metroid Samus Returns
Oh boy was I disappointed by Nintendo  when they shut down the fan  project “AM2R”. They redeemed themselves by delivering one of the best “2D” Metroids ever made!
Ratchet & Clank
Although  I liked it on the PS2, it was the PS4 “reboot” that I enjoyed the best.
Dead Cells
Another of the “just one more try” rogue like Games. This one comes with a very good and challenging gameplay.
Dark Souls 3
Try.One.More.Time.  Need to say more?
Lego Dimensions
My son and I we played the Heck out of this. Excellent couch co-op for younger Kid.s
Very charming and challenging Run ‘n Gun with an exceptional Soundtrack.
Action Hack ‘n Slash Game which captures Deadpool’s sense of Humour very good.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Finally got to play  the  latest ( or last?) Adventure of  Nathan Drake in 2017.
Lego City Undercover
I enjoyed watching my son ply this Game. Although he didn’t catch all the references..
Knack II
Another great local co-op Game ! Never played Knack1, but my son and I liked this one very much.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
I loved the Stick of Truth, so playing the sequel  was a no-brainer. Although I’ll stick with the Stick (Pun intended).
Assassin’s Creed Origins
Never thought I would love another Assassin’s Creed game after Part II. I loved spending hours discovering all the secret tombs. The historical version of Egypt is so well made that it nearly feels like a time travel trip.
