Best Adventure Game of 2017 – Nominees

The end of the year has rolled around, which means it’s time to sum up 2017 with the Game of the Year Awards. PlayStation LifeStyle is doing our year-end awards slightly different from previous years. We wanted to put more importance on the nomination for each award, so we limited each category to five games. That’s not many, especially in a year stacked with great titles. It took a lot of careful deliberation to come up with each list.

This year had some of the best adventures that we’ve ever been on. While technically every game is an adventure (in the same way that every game is technically an RPG), there were certain ones that took us on really special and unforgettable adventures. The Zero Escape series messed with our minds again through timeline crossing story arcs. What Remains of Edith Finch took us on an emotional journey through a family’s grim and death filled history.

Keeping everything that came out in 2017 in mind, here are PlayStation LifeStyle’s nominees for the Best Adventure Game of 2017:

The winner of our Best Adventure Game of 2017 award will be announced next week on Wednesday, December 27. It will be a part of a week-long celebration of the best PlayStation titles of 2017. Ultimately, it’ll conclude on Friday, December 29, where we’ll reveal PlayStation LifeStyle’s Game of the Year 2017. This year will go down as one of the greatest in gaming, so we’re very excited to unveil all of our picks!

Of course, we’d also love to hear what you think. Let us know what your Adventure Game of 2017 was, and which nominee you’ll think will win the award! Will it be Rime’s emotional journey through grief? What about Life Is Strange: Before the Storm’s prequel take on Chloe’s adventures? Stay tuned to find out the winner next week!
