These Are The Best Video Games of 2017

24. Splatoon 2

The original Splatoon was a fantastic change of pace from Nintendo, with one flaw: it was stuck on the ailing Wii U. Thankfully, Splatoon 2 can have much more of an impact thanks to its home on the massively successful Nintendo Switch.

Rather than just rehash the original game on new hardware, however, Splatoon 2 has plenty of improvements on the original game to keep players occupied. The addition of a deep single player mode acts as a great way for new players to get to grips with the mechanics, while Salmon Run is a wonderful addition to the main game.

23. Divinity: Original Sin 2

Divinity: Original Sin 2

The Divinity: Original Sin games are some of the great triumphs of the crowdfunding model. Built around mechanics that traditional AAA gaming has shied away from, the tactical, slow-burning RPG gameplay has left plenty of players hooked.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 improves upon the first game across the board, with a brilliant fantasy story, great strategic RPG gameplay, and some hugely impressive locations to explore. Fully deserving of all the success that has come its way.

22. Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty: WWII

Much was made of the release of Call of Duty: WWII, with Sledgehammer Games finally bringing the Call of Duty franchise back to its Second World War roots. From a commercial perspective, the game has been a smash hit, selling twice as much as the previous game during the first few weeks of its release.

However, those sales don't just relate to hype, with Call of Duty: WWII sitting pretty as one of the best games that the series has seen in years. Not only did the campaign pack a serious punch, but the game's War mode is perhaps the best innovation that Call of Duty has seen in some time.
