Ground Punch’s GOTY Awards 2017

Greetings dear readers, and welcome to Ground Punch’s Game of The Year 2017 awards. 2017 was one of the best years for gaming in recent memory, and who better to share the highlights (and lowlights) with you than the Ground Punch crew? This year we’ve decided to handle our awards a little differently— with so many great games, films, and shows to choose from, we’ve opted to choose a single winner for each category, but let our writers go wild writing about as many of the runner ups as they wanted. This means that you might occasionally see contradictory opinions, but don’t worry— we trust you to judge our arguments and make your own mind up.

In addition to this list, we’re also bringing you staff GOTY lists throughout the coming week, where our writers will showcase their personal top picks without any of that icky consensus stuff. This means more variety for you, and more passionate write-ups from us!

We hope you enjoy reading this year’s GOTY content much as we enjoyed writing it. Now sit back, relax, pour yourself a cup of your favorite beverage, and join us in exploring the best of what 2017 had to offer (or just skip to the end if you’re into that kind of thing. We won’t judge ❤).
