2017 has been a great year so far, and same goes for all the gamers out there as well. Already some amazing video games are out in the market with many more exciting ones to releasing in the coming months. A couple of Game of the Year Contenders are available, still, it won’t be right to jump to any decision so early. However, in order to come up with some of the best games of 2017, we went through all the promising released and upcoming Playstation, Xbox and PS games, and given below are the best looking games of 2017 which possesses impeccable graphics, storyline, superb ideas and a lot more.

Best Looking Games of the Year

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect is a very popular series and the best thing about the fans is that the game is releasing next week. In the last edition, Commander Shepard saved everyone from the Reapers, but the story does not end there. The game starts in the middle of Milky way just after the events of its prequel. But the story the soon escalates 600 years back when the Reaper invasion is still to happen. You wake up in cry-sleep in order to become the first human present in the Andromeda galaxy.

The new Andromeda will feature same long dialogues and huge plot twists as well. We expect it to be a big treat for “space” fans. There are a lot more planets to explore where one can roam both on foot as well as on vehicles.

Gravity Rush 2

The original “Gravity Rush” is a gorgeous, ambitious cult-classic. It was released as an exclusive on Sony’s PlayStation Vita handheld — a portable game console that sold less-than-impressively. Though the original game eventually ended up on other PlayStation platforms, fans (including us) are anxiously anticipating “Gravity Rush 2” — a full-fledged sequel to the original, made for the (far more powerful) PlayStation 4.

In “Gravity Rush 2,” you play the role of Kat: a woman with the ability to manipulate gravity. Take aim at a surface, press a button on the PS4 gamepad, and that surface becomes your new floor. It’s the kind of experience that’s fun enough on its own, without all the gorgeous artistry and mysterious storytelling.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

The latest main series entry in the long-running “Resident Evil” franchise is a bit of a reboot. Unlike the last several games in the series, “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard” doesn’t focus on third-person action/combat. Instead, it’s a survival horror game — that means low ammunition and health, with a focus on survival over mastery. It’s also the first major entry in the series to move from third-person to first-person,  and in addition to it can also be played using the PlayStation VR headset with PlayStation 4.

For Honor

“For Honor” is a brand-new game from Ubisoft Montreal, the “Assassin’s Creed” folks — that take thousands of years of human history and blends it into a fantastical slurry. Imagine battling as a Viking warrior against, a Japanese samurai! Or as a medieval knight against one of those two! That’s the gist of “For Honor,” which arrives just in time to pit you and your Valentine against each other.

Halo Wars 2

The “Halo” series is loved by millions. However, the lore of the “Halo” series is loved by a fraction of that overall fanbase, and it’s games like “Halo Wars” that help keep that dedicated fan base loyal. If you love the tales of Master Chief and The Covenant in the first-person shooter series, chances are you’ll enjoy the tactical gameplay of the “Halo Wars” series. While the gameplay is a complete divergence from standard “Halo,” it’s a heavy-hitter in its own genre (real-time strategy games). “Halo Wars 2” looks to carry that torch forward.

Release Date: February 21, 2017

Platforms: Xbox One, PC

Horizon Zero Dawn

From the creators of the “Killzone” series comes “Horizon Zero Dawn,” an action/role-playing game played from the third-person perspective. You’re on a distant-future Earth, where hulking metal dinosaurs seemingly rule the land and humanity has reverted — or evolved? — to some form of neo-tribalism with pseudo-technological underpinnings. If nothing else, it’s gorgeous and packed with giant metal dinosaurs. Why do so few games have dinosaurs?!

Release Date: February 28, 2017

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

The latest entry in the Tom Clancy-verse takes place in a sprawling, gorgeous open world that can be navigated with cars, boats, helicopters, planes and more. But why? To take down nefarious drug cartels, of course. Put a stop to the cocaine nightmare on your own or with three friends in a four-player co-op mode that somewhat looks downright chaotic.

Release Date: March 7, 2017

Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC

Persona 5

To call the “Persona” series a “cult classic” would be to undersell the seriousness of its fandom. The folks that love “Persona” love it with a depth and loyalty most human beings will never understand. On paper, the hooks sound simple: It’s a third-person Japanese role-playing game, with a heavy focus on the bizarre. It’s stylish, memorable and nigh-inscrutable to non-fans. The long-awaited fifth entry is due out worldwide this year, having already launched in Japan many moons ago.

Release Date: April 4, 2017

Platforms: PlayStation 3 and 4

Night in the Woods

If you’re one of the millions of people who left your childhood home, then returned at some point to find it feeling alien, “Night in the Woods” is a game you can relate to. It stars a character named Mae who, after leaving for college and subsequently dropping out, returns to her hometown. Rather than the place she left, she finds it different than she remembers. Also, she’s a cat and everyone in the town is some type of speaking animal. This isn’t a game about interactivity as systems to master, but a game about exploration and storytelling — it’s also critically lauded ahead of its release. Keep an eye out for “Night in the Woods.”

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered

“PaRappa the Rapper,” for millions of people, was an early mainstream introduction to hip-hop. The game is simple: mash the right buttons on the controller along to the music. Do it well enough and the game rewards you with a steady, fresh flow. And in 2017, the game is getting re-mastered for the PlayStation 4! There’s even a free demo right now if you want to check it out early.

Rime

“Rime” is a game seemingly out of another era of game development, when experimental third-person action games were a normal occurrence. It’s a colorful, vibrant puzzle game starring a young boy who wakes up on a mysterious island. Your goal in the game is to figure out what the heck is going on on that island. Where are you? How did you reach there? Where to go? What to do? All these questions are out there on the island. How do you move forward past this puzzle? These are questions likely to be answered by the game when it arrives in May.

Release Date: May 2017

Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC

Yooka-Laylee

Yooka Laylee is a game that will remind you of the glory days of “Super Mario 64,” “Crash Bandicoot,” and “Banjo Kazooie”? The folks behind “Yooka-Laylee” sure hope you do — the same folks who created the bear with a bird in a backpack (“Banjo Kazooie”) are at it again with “Yooka-Laylee,” a 3D action-platforming game. Considering how hard of a time even Nintendo’s had making that genre work in recent years, our expectations aren’t sky-high for “Yooka-Laylee” — but some clever level design and an evolution of the genre could very well be in the cards.

Release Date: April 11, 2017
