As a long standing fan of Dragon Ball Z but not a particular fan of fighting games DRAGON BALL FighterZ presents me with a conflict of interests.

If my massive backlog of videogames is any measure, 2017 was alright. A bit too alright. With Nintendo back on form, there was barely a reprieve from awesome releases.
