Japan: Here’s Famitsu’s Games Of The Year 2017

The latest edition of Japanese gaming publication Weekly Famitsu is due for general release tomorrow and comes with the annual Game of the Year feature. It’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that has been awarded the best video game of 2017 by the magazine. Here’s the rest of the games:

  1. Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  2. Dragon Quest XI: SugisarishiToki o Motomete
  3. NieR: Automata
  4. Splatoon 2
  5. Super Mario Odyssey



  1. None of the GotY nominees got in accept Odyssey and Botw, I was happy, but Splatoon 2 beating Odyssey? I don’t trust Famitsu any more

    1. I would say par, I was very disappointed with Odyssey, being a huge Mario fan for 25 years I was let down … Ah of just made galaxy 3 like everyone wanted lol .. but getting to 999 moons in a week? Cmon I need a challenge!!! … Zelda is the fact of ninty now not Mario

    2. What do you mean “you don’t trust Famitsu anymore”? Splatoon is a huge success particularly in Japan and it’s a very well known fact.

      1. I can’t answer that being as I haven’t played that Metal Gear game. (The only one I’ve actually played was Twin Snakes on GCN with a few minutes spent playing MGS2 & the demo for MGS3 Snake Eater on 3DS.)

      2. And I probably won’t play them for some time to come as I won’t support the current Konami.

      3. 2 different games,Nier Automata is a 3rd person action role playing game. MG:R is a 3rd person action game. They both do use hack and slash mechanics, but MG:R is on a whole other level with a new cut mechanic called Freecutting. its not perfect because you can only cut a thing so much (in case you didnt know, polygons are hollow inside) and you cant cut whats no there. MGRising is a decent game, and I have only played the demo for Nier Automata, and it was decent as well (from what I played.)
