2017 has been a polarizing year for gamers. We have experienced some of the best games of all time during the twelve short months. We have also had some high profile games be a huge let down and potential dangerous to children’s long term mental development. I looking at you loot boxes… Thankfully the Spoon Deep crew is here to break down the best games of 2017 and more.
In this episode, Jake, Brian, Ian, and Chase discuss some of their favorite games from the past few months. What has occupied the majority of our time this year? Jake was the only one lucky enough to snag a Nintendo Switch this year, and none of our contributors have a PlayStation 4, but our discussion rages on.
Because the year has been full of so many great games, we decided to break up our Game of the Year discussion into two parts.
For this episode we discuss the best music we have experienced in a video game so far, maybe even all time! We discuss the best ongoing game, which refers to which games have had the best community engagement in 2017. For this category we are primarily looking long term at games released in 2016 and earlier.
Because members of Spoon Deep also share their time with a significant other, we discuss which games 2017 has brought that allow us to play games with our loved ones.
Finally, we discuss the Golden Spoon Award. The only award decided by Spoon Deep recognizing excellence in video games during the past year. This years nominees are:
- Splatoon 2 (from Jake)
- Super Mario Odyssey (from Brian)
- Call of Duty WWII (from Chase)
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (from Ian)
We hope that you love listening to the podcast as much as we love creating it, we will see you next week.
Spoon Deep wants to be a driving force in the games industry. Each week we deliver a podcast that goes after the deep discussions and critical analysis of the video game industry. Hopefully, by talking about and discussing some of these key issues we can enlighten you about some of the things going on in the industry, as well as give our unique spin.
We hope each episode can highlight some of the great things happening in the industry, along with shining a light on some of the more negative aspects in the hope that things can change going forward.
