Here’s The Top Rated Games Of 2017 According To Metacritic Data

It’s approaching that time of year when all the publications post their best of the year lists. Metacritic seems to be the leading review aggregation site so Reset Era member Phantom Thief has done a bit of digging and has published the highest rated games of the year. Here’s how it was done:

Please note that I did have two considerations while I was going through this list:

  • For any game with multiple versions, only one version is selected and on this list
  • Any game with less than 10 reviews was not considered

The second rule didn’t actually come into play in the first list (it does in the second list), but in the interests of transparency, I figured I’d lay it out anyway. So, without further ado, these are the games:

  1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 97
  2. Super Mario Odyssey: 96
  3. Divinity: Original Sin 2: 93
  4. Persona 5: 93
  5. What Remains of Edith Finch: 92
  6. Undertale: 92
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 92
  8. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove: 91
  9. Bayonetta: 90
  10. Lone Echo: 89
  11. F1 2017: 89
  12. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood: 89
  13. Rez Infinite: 89
  14. Horizon: Zero Dawn: 89
  15. Injustice 2: 89
  16. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen: 88
  17. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus: 88
  18. NieR Automata: 88
  19. SteamWorld Dig 2: 88
  20. Cuphead: 88

EDIT: By popular demand, if re-releases are removed, this is what the list looks like:

I don’t count re-releases, this is what it becomes:

  1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 97
  2. Super Mario Odyssey: 96
  3. Divinity: Original Sin 2: 93
  4. Persona 5: 93
  5. What Remains of Edith Finch: 92
  6. Lone Echo: 89
  7. F1 2017: 89
  8. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood: 89
  9. Horizon: Zero Dawn: 89
  10. Injustice 2: 89
  11. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen: 88
  12. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus: 88
  13. NieR Automata: 88
  14. SteamWorld Dig 2: 88
  15. Cuphead: 88
  16. Nex Machina: Death Machine: 88
  17. Night in the Woods: 88
  18. Nioh: 88
  19. Destiny 2: 87
  20. Total War: Warhammer 2: 86

  1. Oh, would you look at that, last time I checked Mario Odyssey was still at 97%. It’s not like that 1% is going to make a difference, though. And Zelda is still sitting on that 97%.

  2. NieR: Automata is at 88%? I’m cool with that. *doesn’t see FFXV on there* Shame as I’m enjoying my time with it. *doesn’t see RE7b on there, either* :/

      1. Damn it! I keep forgetting it released on Nov. 29th…

  3. Well whatever anyone thinks about this list I think the top 2 are in the right place. Doesn’t really matter which way round. THERE TOP 2 and there from Nintendo

    1. 2017 isn’t over yet. Still plenty of time for it to catch up to this top 10 list by December 31st at 11:59:59pm. (I’m pretty sure each user review is automatically dated at the time of posting.)
