The ten best games of 2017 (so far) that you haven't played yet no particular order, I’m going to tell you about ten different games that I think are the bee’s lesser known knees.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Titanfall 2 should be on this list.

Caladrius, originally a 2013 release (and available in English since 2015), shouldn’t be on this list.

It’s an updated release with some special new mode or something. Evolution mode, I think? You can play in original mode, arcade mode, and evolution mode. One of those merited a standalone Steam release in January, so you’ll have to take that up with Gabe Newell!


You guys are terrible at this!

But I do keep being told that the single-player campaign in Titanfall 2 is good.


I’m pretty sure the Steam release just happened because MOSS wanted some of that sweet PC shmup dosh - there’s no new content since the PS3 release of Caladrius Blaze back in 2014.

It’s very good, Tom! You can blast through the entire campaign in an afternoon, though, because there’s zero fat. It’s my favorite singleplayer shooter of the past decade.

Can you guys tell I’ve just figured out how to use the paintbrush tool in Photoshop?

But, yeah, I get what you’re saying. However, since I don’t play shmups on my PS3, partly because I no longer have a PS3, this is my first exposure to Caladrius Blaze. I suspect that’s the case for lots of folks who play PC games. That said, the other nine picks should be indisputably 2017 releases. With maybe one or two possible exceptions.

Wait, now I’m running through a list of what shooters came out in the last ten years…


Let’s see how many of these games have attractive anime ladies in them.

Hey now, let’s not forget the attractive anime fellas!

Sometimes, there is a middle ground…

A 10-day reveal for a top 10 list? No one is this brazen.

So’s ur face!

Did you put titanfall 2 on a list in 2016? No? Fix it!
(you might have, I dunno, ur face)

Perhaps 9-1 will all be revealed tomorrow?

ps, that ‘title picture’ of Angelas High School Reunion makes me really want to play that game.

I mean that is a fantastic game that I have no hesitation to recommend to anyone who likes tactics games.

Based on previous comments I fully expect to see Age of Rivals and Race for the Galaxy both on here somewhere, as well as Antihero (no, it’s not too new).

As long as we don’t get Age of Umpires and Reach for the Stars, AND I haven’t played them… I’m OK with 'em.

Waiting to see if you’ve played The Sexy Brutale. We’ll know soon…

I’ve played the first three murders. I love its style to bits, but my initial impression was that it’s just a slightly different way to parse the usual adventure game logic. You know, spread the peanut butter on the bread, slide it under the door, use the ice pick to push the key through the lock so it falls on the…yadda yadda yadda. Basically, Hitman in reverse. Should I stick with it further?


If you played the first 3 murders then you’ve got the gist of it as far as I can tell…I haven’t finished it either so if there is a twitst or something, I don’t know about it.
