And here we are -- Push Square's final Game of the Year 2017 article. Phew! What better way to round things off than with the results of our community Game of the Year poll, in which we asked you lot to vote for your favourite games of 2017. For what it's worth, we reckon you've got pretty good taste.
We've listed your top ten below, in descending order.
#5: Yakuza 0
Yakuza 0 ended up doing exactly what SEGA wanted it to -- it introduced a whole new audience to the mental adventures of Kazuma Kiryu. We're more than happy to see this one sit near the top of your Game of the Year list.
#4: NieR: Automata
The one big game that went missing when it came to our staff Game of the Year vote, NieR: Automata did much better with you lot, securing a top five finish. Easily one of the biggest surprise hits of 2017.
#3: Persona 5
Our staff Game of the Year didn't quite sweep the community vote, but Persona 5 still managed to place third overall. A great achievement for a title that has almost nothing in common with the industry's usual blockbusters.
None of you missed Nathan Drake, it seems. Standing proud in second place on your list as well as ours, Chloe and Nadine’s standalone adventure deserves its place on the podium.
All-Mother be praised! Horizon Zero Dawn shot an arrow through your collective heart, with excellent combat, an intriguing story, and a badass lead character in Aloy. The game placed highly on our list, too, but it’s clearly made a big impression -- Horizon Zero Dawn is your Game of the Year.
And there you have it -- the top ten games of 2017 as voted for by you, the Push Square community. Are you happy with your list? Celebrate great games in the comments section below.
