Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

This is probably the second time in two years that I can say that it’s been a pretty good year for games and anime, if not necessarily a great year for everything else. That might be true in the broader sense, but despite this more ...

Destructoid's award for Overall Best Game of 2017 goes to...

Kept you waiting, huh? We've seen robots with weird life choices overtake the top PS4 slot, Fleischer cartoons made a comeback nearly a century later, and a Nintendo game triumph on mobile. It was a weird, wonderful year, so wonderful ...

Destructoid's award for Best Portable Game of 2017 goes to...

Samus Returns. And how. MercurySteam knocked it out of the park in 2017 with Metroid: Samus Returns. The Nintendo 3DS title took the 1991 Game Boy release Metroid II: Return of Samus, and re-envisioned it into a gorgeous, aggressive and add...

Destructoid's award for Best PC Game of 2017 goes to...

The runaway most popular game of the year is also our PC Game of the Year. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG as it's colloquially called, has been an absolute tour de force on the sales charts. It smashed Steam's concurrent users recor...

Destructoid's award for Best Mobile Game of 2017 goes to...

2017 has been a bit of an eye-opener for me on mobile gaming. I’d dabbled in the marketplace casually since first getting a smartphone, but this was the first year I attempted to seek out quality titles. In doing so, I found a bevy of...

Destructoid's award for Best Switch Game of 2017 goes to...

Packed as the nominees for the Switch were, as many had guessed, the real race was between two of Nintendo's major franchises. A new Zelda that changed the way open games are played, a new 3D Mario game with tons of gameplay tweaks and chal...

Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2017 goes to...

Yoko Taro did it. While the PlayStation 4 had no shortage of remarkable games this year and trying to sort through them to crown a single standout title was conflicting to say the least, Yoko Taro, Platinum Games, and Square Enix were onto ...

Destructoid's award for Best VR Game of 2017 goes to...

Modern virtual reality, in earnest, kicked off in March of 2016. It's hard to believe that it's nearly been two years, but so far the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR have made their own unique impact on the industry. Although...

Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2017 goes to...

"Good things come to those who wait" is a saying that gets said sometimes. It's supposed to extol the virtue of patience, as though it isn't always best to enthusiastically leap toward everything. That's probably true! It's important to be ...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2017

If future historians or whatever alien race eventually colonizes Earth and wipes out humanity – my money is on the Tollybex of Urutha XXI – look back on the brief but bountiful life of the Nintendo Wii U, they will no doubt poin...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Switch Game of 2017

What a year that was, right? Some bad stuff happened, but at least the games were good! Nintendo had a crazy first nine months for its new console, and the Switch has gone on to sell 10 million units despite having a "slow" start at launch....

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2017

I've been a PC fan for a long time. My first shooter was Catacomb 3-D, and my first OS was DOS. And all this time, I've seen the phrases "PC gaming is dying," or "PC gaming is dead" just about every year. Yet time and time again it rises up...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2017

For as much promise as the technology has, mobile gaming is pretty goddamn stagnant. The medium is rife with apps meant to test your patience more than your skills and goad you into opening your wallet for a shot at a little more. It’...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2017

What a weird year for Xbox, right? The past 12 months were filled with a lot of incredible games, and a bunch of them came to Xbox. But, there's no tiptoeing around the fact that hardly any of them came exclusively to Xbox, which is al...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2017

The best games of 2016 you didn't play

I said it about 2015 and I feel as if it's even more true of 2016: this was a great year to play video games. The general landscape of the industry seems to be trending in a positive direction, with more and more things to love. However it'...

Pixie's favorite gaming memories of 2016

Given I finally jumped on the 8th gen bandwagon late in October 2016, I couldn't fairly say I've played each game released in 2016 to completion. For one thing, when I get a new PlayStation console, playing the latest Metal Gear Solid game ...
