2017 gave us an amazing year in gaming. From stunning graphics to groundbreaking voiceover performances, 2k17 was full of surprises. Some games went above and beyond while others kept the gaming community enraged or at the least, utterly disappointed. Below are the winners of Play Legit’s annual best of gaming series.

The Mummy: Demastered is so much better than it deserves to be. The game is a tie-in to Universal’s The Mummy and given the film’s poor reviews I didn’t expect much from anything associated with it. But the moment the chiptune title music and pixelated Universal logo appeared I knew something didn’t quite fit with my expectations.
Developed by WayForward (The same company known for the Shantae series), The Mummy: Demastered takes a bold step and immediately throws the player into a Metroidvania map filled with locations from the film. You’ll also recognize the title villain Ahmanet and Russel Crowe’s pixelated likeness, but that’s where the film similarities end. Instead of playing Tom Cruise’s character you play a disposable grunt sent to clean up the undead menace plaguing London.
What a year it has been for Nintendo! Not only do they turn the ship around with the Switch, but they also give us Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey in the same year? As a long time Nintendo fan, this year ranks up there as one of the best, if not the best year in their rich history. Mario has really come full circle now with Odyssey, a game that incorporates ideas from nearly all the Mario games while still pushing forward into new uncharted territory. It should come as no surprise to anyone that it is amazing. But just how amazing is it? Where does it fall along the pantheon of amazing Mario games? Is it game of the year over Zelda? These are the thoughts that kept bouncing around in my head as I played Mario’s latest adventure.

In SteamWorld Dig 2, developer Image & Form have managed to refine its unique blend of free-form mining and quirky rpg action while also walking back on some good design decisions from the first game. Right away we are reintroduced to Dorothy, a steampunk robot (who was an ally in the first game) and through boring text bubbles the goal of rescuing Rusty is explained. Yes, the characters talking back and forth are presented in little text bubbles and no I didn’t find it charming like most Nintendo games— I mashed through them trying to not lose my excitement. Rusty, the original protagonist (who went missing at the end of SteamWorld Dig), now looms large over the adventure. In fact, Rusty was a cooler character than Dorothy— not that it matters much— but right off the bat, I was kind of ‘meh’ about playing as her. Needless to say, I like the game but I have some issues with it. Let’s dig a little deeper (I’m sorry, but not sorry).
