The Joy of Gaming Podcast, Episode 69:
The Best Video Games of 2017 (The Year in Geek, Part 1)

On this episode of The Joy of Gaming Podcast, we (Rich and Jordan) kick off our podcast-wide “The Year in Geek” celebration with a look at The Best Video Games of 2017. And what an interesting year it’s been in gaming.

We start with a look at some of 2017's biggest stories and trends, most notably the launch of the Nintendo Switch, the meteoric rise of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and the controversy surrounding two massive sequels - Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Destiny 2 - and their less-than-ideal approach to microtransactions. Oh, and VR games continued to be released, did we mention that?

Next it’s time for the awards, as we honor the best that video games had to offer in 2017. This year's categories include:

Best Character
Most Surprising
Biggest Disappointment
Worst Game
Best Soundtrack
The Top 3 Best Games of 2017
and more!

So join us, as we attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff, make impossible decisions as game genres collide, and celebrate another year of truly remarkable gaming experiences. This...is The Joy of Gaming!
