GearNuke Editor’s Pick For Game Of The Year 2017

2017 is ending soon and as the new year begins, we can take a look back at all the games released over the year. The launch of the Nintendo Switch this year also marked a new beginning for Nintendo and not only the platform received some of the best games released this year, it also proved to be a smashing success for Nintendo generating record sales for them.

These were the Top 5 picks from the GearNuke’s editorial staff. We will later post our final Game of the Year but in the meanwhile, you can have a look at the individual staff pick below.

Danial Arshad Khan (CEO – GearNuke)

  • Persona 5
  • Nier Automata
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Tales of Berseria
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

Danial faced some disappointment with South Park: The Fractured But Whole but generally enjoyed most of the games. He missed out on Nintendo Switch hence his list mostly contains PS4 games.

Khurram Imtiaz (Editor-in-Chief – GearNuke)

  • Cuphead
  • Steamworld Dig 2
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
  • Yakuza 0
  • Resident Evil 7

Cuphead was a complete surprise to me this year. It also offers a co-op experience that I have yet to see in any other game and with a charming art style to back it up. I also enjoyed indie games like Steamworld Dig 2 and Ubisoft’s take on Mario + Rabbids.

Muhammad Ali Bari (Reviews Editor – GearNuke)

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Persona 5
  • Cuphead
  • Resident Evil 7

He is often regarded as a diehard Nintendo fan so it is no surprise to see The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey making his top list.

Ali Khan (Editor – GearNuke)

  • Persona 5
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Ali Khan considers Persona 5 the best JRPG released this year, and the best game in the series. He also enjoyed his time with Horizon: Zero Dawn and almost earned his platinum for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

Humad Ali Shah (Editor – GearNuke)

  • Persona 5
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn

Humad didn’t manage to finish many games this year but out of the ones that he did complete, Persona 5 has easily taken the top spot. The rest of the games that he did enjoy but never had the chance to finish them include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Nier Automata.

Let us know your personal game of the year in the comments below.
