I think I know where these votes are going with the year Nintendo had (3D World won 2013?), so Cuphead gets my courtesy vote. :coffee:

Toss in another vote for Super Mario Oddysey! The game blew my highest expectations out of the water and gave me possibly my favorite 3D style Mario game to date (debating between this one and Galaxy).

I have to go with Breath of the Wild too. The amount of freedom to move about the Great Plateau is amazing.

Though iím no Zelda fan, I canít deny how influential BotW has been this year in gaming. It almost singlehandedly brought Nintendo out of a dark age.
It must be exciting to never have played a Zelda game before - No64DD

I had to scan over my game completion list to even see if I had knocked out any actual 2017 releases and there were only two: Horizon: Zero Dawn and Rime. Both were great games but I'll give my vote to Horizon: Zero Dawn as it had a beefier story and huge open world that I enjoyed playing in greatly. That being said, I don't think anything will compete with Breath of the Wild and I hope someday I will get to play it, too.

Apologies if I am too late or whatever, was working 84 hour weeks and stuff...
Even if I am I just have to mention Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Absolute masterpiece...as long as you have time to play it 😊

I am a bit conflicted. The two games I am most likely to tip my hat to are BotW and Skyrim (both the VR release and the Wii release). Skyrim is my favorite game of all time. I have not played BotW but would really like too. Somehow I do think it would manage to captivate me than a 5th run through on Skyrim on those platforms (currently I am on my 4th play through at the moment)

So I will give my vote to BotW based on seeing it played in person and watching videos of it.

Skyrim VR really is something special. Havenít been able to play as much due to first pink eye, then forgetting to order some spacers to keep the PSVR lenses from hitting my glasses, but Iím looking forward to getting back into it.

We are foregoing a poll, as Breath of the Wild drastically won the nominations with 11. The nearest to it was 2.
That being said, Breath of the Wild is our 2017 Modern Console Game of the Year!
