Flipgeeks’ Most Anticipated Games of 2017

I don’t have a console, so here’s something from a PC gamer’s perspective. Admittedly I have been very picky in the games I play in recent years (have only started playing The Witcher 3 recently), and as a result I’ve played far fewer games. Nevertheless there are still some games that I look forward to, and here is my list. Note that Red Dead Redemption 2 was only announced for consoles so far, but here’s hoping it comes to the PC.

Tekken 7 

Funnily enough, Tekken 7 has been in Asian arcades since early 2015. Bandai Namco’s “arcade first” policy for the Tekken series may leave the majority of fans feeling left out. But Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada promises the long wait will certainly be worth it since they plan on incorporating massive extra content for the home versions. Of course, getting a late release for the sake of polishing the game to its full potential is a welcome sacrifice in my book.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole 

While The Stick of Truth focused on fantasy and RPG elements, South Park: The Fractured But Whole’s main theme is the rise of superheroes in mainstream pop culture. Expect not only some hilarious and satirical commentary from the kids of South Park, but also a genuinely good RPG gameplay. This RPG will have more classes to choose from compared to the previous game, and it’s up to you to choose which side of the superhero war you’re on.

Mass Effect: Andromeda 

The Mass Effect trilogy is among the best of sci-fi video games in recent memory, and its story has been concluded definitively. Set 600 years after Mass Effect 3, Andromeda proves that there’s still much to do in the world of Mass Effect. The game offers new characters and a completely open-world gameplay, and it seems the main story is to search for a new home for humanity. It’s going to be released in March, so it’s not that long of a wait.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Ever since the release of Red Dead Redemption in 2010, fans have continuously clamored for a sequel to the high successful open-world western game. And just a few months ago, Rockstar revealed the sequel Red Dead Redemption 2 much to the joy of fans. Not much is known about the game, but knowing Rockstar, it’s safe to say that it’s going to be great. The game was announced only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, based on the release schedule of Grand Theft Auto V, here’s hoping it will come to PC as well.


These are just but a few of the games that  we’re expecting to see –and hopefully play the living hell out of– this year. There’s still a long way to go before any of these gets released, some might even get delayed. For now, I suggest you save up, mark your calendars and prepare yourselves, ’cause 2017 is looking to be an even greater year for gaming.
