HBM's Top Ten Games of E3 2017

Yeah, I'm not doing a full E3 post this year. There was too much, so instead I'm doing this. Hell, I may just do this every year from now on.

The list will only consist of games that actually had gameplay footage shown and/or playable demos, and if they appeared at last year's E3, there has to have been notable progress made in the games development. So, sorry, no Metroid Prime 4, and no Pokemon Switch. Also, no re-releases, so no Shadow of the Colossus PS4, no Skyrim Switch/VR, no Pokken Switch, no Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga 3DS, and no Undertale PS4 (even though that could easily be #1, just for being Undertale). Anyway, onto the post

HBM's Top Ten Games of 2017 I'm Most Excited For (Quick)

So, I know it's kinda late for me to do this, but here's the Top Ten games of 2017 I'm Most Excited For.

Though this time, it's different, because I'm a lazy prick. I'm just giving a sentence or two about the game, rather than the paragraph that I usually do. And no pictures. Again, lazy prick.

#10: Red Dead Redemption 2: RDR 1 was amazing, so of course I'm excited for another one. Only reason it's so low is that we know nothing about it other than "it exists."

#9: Injustice 2: Take Injustice 1, give it better graphics, new characters, character customization, and possibly some Mortal Kombat X influences, and you have this game.

#8: Fire Emblem Warriors: It's a Warriors-style game, with Fire Emblem, and confirmed Chrom. Why would you not be excited?

#7: South Park: The Fractured but Whole: Stick of Truth was amazing, and Fractured but Whole looks to expand on the gameplay, while changing to a superhero theme. Pretty good.

#6: Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite: Finally a new MVC game, hopefully we'll get a big roster of more recent fan-favorites.

#5: Sonic Mania: What Sonic 4 should have been, pretty much.

#4: Super Mario Odyssey: A new style of 3D Mario game, bringing back the collection aspect fro SM64 to Galaxy, which is beautiful.

#3: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: New Zelda finally has a release date, after all these years. It's about damn time.

#2: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk: Another Warriors-style game, this one's based on the Berserk manga series, and aims to be the goriest Warriors game yet.

#1: Yooka-Laylee: From the creators of Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country, a Collect-a-thon the likes of which haven't been seen since the N64. This is going to be amazing.

So, there it is, a month late. Now to put off posting for a long time again.

HBM, signing out.

HBM's Top Ten Games of 2016

So, 2016 certainly was... a year. But disregarding all the absolute shit that happened, in terms of video games, it was a good year. We got some great games... and some disappointments. But I'm counting down my favorite games of the year. Of course, this is all subject to change in the future, and only games I've actually played.
