As with every year there has been some debate over whether 2016 was a “good” year for gaming. Regardless of where you fall on this, it’s hard to deny that there was certainly something missing when it came to original games. Here our Daniel Goad counts down what he’s looking forward to in 2017.

Ten Original Video Games to Look Forward to in 2017

The indie scene was as strong as always, Overwatch was huge and the Division sold well, but most games from the big publishers and developers came and went with a whimper. Hugely anticipated titles like No Man’s Sky and The Last Guardian had a mixed reaction critically and really failed to make a splash with the public. The bulk of the AAA games that sold well this year were all part of existing franchises: Dishonoured, Forza Horizon, Uncharted, Watch Dogs, Battlefield and the usual suspects of CoD and FIFA.

But whilst 2017 will have its fair share of new titles in existing series – like Resident Evil, Mass Effect, God of War – there will certainly be no shortage of brand new worlds to explore. All of the games listed here are expected to come out in 2017, though the industry being what it is I can’t make any promises. We’ve recently lost the exciting looking Scalebound, and Microsoft especially have shown they are not against taking a knife to games late in the development cycle.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

First a small disclaimer: I’m not making a judgement on if these games are “original” in the sense of whether they are derivative of or inspired by an existing franchise (some of them clearly are). What I mean by original here are new characters telling a new story in a new world.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  32. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
