The calendar’s doors have been opened and the games inside have been eaten. But fear not, latecomer – we’ve reconstructed the list in this single post for easy re-consumption. Click on to discover the best games of 2017.
To explain: RPS picks our 24 favourite games released each year and reveals those choices on the countdown to Christmas like a daily chocolate treat. Each chosen game is left a surprise until you click through to the post, which means those 24 posts are easily lost within the vast RPS archives. This article collects those 24 games together into a single post, so they’re easier to find for future generations who want to know what what floated our boat in 2017.
You have two methods of navigating this post. One is to use the little arrows below the header image or the arrows on your keyboard. The second is to click the doors of the advent calendar below, which will zip you to the page with the game originally revealed on that day. The games aren’t in any order, except for December 24th which is objectively the year’s best game. Enjoy!
