Holiday Gift Guide 2017 – Video Games

This particular entry in our 2017 holiday gift guides will focus on video games – the whole reason this website came into existence in the first place! The guide will take titles across any platform or genre, so long as it is a cut above the crowd and worth your hard-earned, gift-purchasing money and was released in the 2017 calendar year – enjoy!

1.) Stories Untold

Stories Untold is a hard game to explain, but I’ll give it my best shot. The game is made up of four adventures that all connect in some way – saying more than that would spoil it for you. The game also features some VERY 1980’s horror/sci-fi style – from its score to the technology and scenarios featured in the adventures. It’s terrific, and well worth the $10 price tag.

2.) South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park: The Fractured But Whole features an enhanced combat system with more tactical options, an irreverent story, and a ton of references to the South Park TV show. If you are into raunchy humor, or just a fan of the show, you don’t want to miss out on playing it.

3.) Total War: Warhammer 2

Total War: Warhammer 2 is a quick follow-up to Total War: Warhammer. As the name suggests, it is set in the Games Workshop world of Warhammer, mixed with the tactical and strategic options the Total War series is known for.

4.) Cuphead

A visually stunning platformer which takes its cues from the cartoons of the 1930s, Cuphead has a focus on some intense boss battles. The game is a visual hoot with a ton of things to see – it can actually be somewhat distracting it is so eye-catching!

Platforms: PC, Xbox One

5.) Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Released in January of 2017, this Resident Evil game brought the series back to its survival horror roots. The game is super-intense and super-scary – however, if that is your kind of thing, you will love it! It actually proved too intense for your’s truly, so I hope you are braver than I!

Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PCSteam Link

6.) Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Turning away from usual series protagonist Nathan Drake, The Lost Legacy focuses on Chloe and Nadine, two side characters from previous Uncharted games. The Lost Legacy is a fun adventure game that fans of the series will love. If you have never played the Uncharted games before, however, you might consider it before delving into this one.

Platforms: PlayStation 4
