BEST GAMES OF 2017 – BEN’S TOP 10

BEST GAMES OF 2017 – BEN’S TOP 10

Well 2017 was certainly a year huh. Can’t say I will miss it due to all the impending global nightmare shenanigans. But for myself and for BXBGames it was another good one. We had a raft of excellent games to play and it would seem like I played most of them… Not quite all, and most of them not to completion, but I dabbled with many and that’s always fun even if it does create an almost ADD gaming habit that means I rarely play games just for the sake of…

Along the way experienced many different emotions, surprise, disappointment, anger just to name a few, but most of all I’ve had fun which is at the end of…

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (Xbox One, Early Look)

Early Access is a term that has become ever more prevalent in the video games world. The intent as I see it is to allow smaller studios to fund games during development by offering discounts to those willing to persist with an incomplete, and often unstable, experience. The reality however feels much more like a mechanism for developers to cash out early and move on to other, newer, things seldom delivering a complete product. It has however become the spawning grounds for some innovative and refreshing gameplay experiences.
