Hello! Chris Donlan here. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Now we’re almost certainly going to make you really angry, which is unfortunate really. Welcome to our list of the top 50 games of 2017, as chosen by the team at Eurogamer! Over the next few days we’ll be counting down our choices, ten games at a time.
While publishing this list I re-read Eurogamer’s top 50 games of 2008, just to see how things went the last time we handled a best-of this way – and to do a massive cut and paste so I didn’t need to write any HTML from scratch, obviously. It turned out to be completely fascinating. What’s clear is that, back then, editorial more or less played the same games as each other – it certainly seems that a lot of people could chime in with thoughts on a good proportion of the games in the list.
Games are more varied in 2017, and as players we’re also far more scattered. When we all got together recently to argue out the top ten in the pub just down the road, it became clear quite quickly that, aside from a few mega-hits, most of us were arguing from our own comfortable niches.
