But every coin has two sides and for all the great games we got to play there was a stinker we had to suffer through as well. These 10 games represent those terrible titles that at one point had us excited to play them only to dash our hopes with their terrible gameplay, bad graphics, lousy level design and just plain awful production values. Of course, there are definitely statistically worst games that released in 2017 but we wanted to give some attention to the games that left a particularly bad taste in our mouths."

James writes - "As the penultimate episode of Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two arrives for our perusal, its surprising how solid each and every episode of this second series has been; given how inconsistent the first season was. Telltales job isnt over just yet though, as Episode Four, Below the Bedrock, must uphold the same high standards to set us up nicely for the upcoming finale.

ThisGenGaming says: "SOMA is above anything else, an experience. The games story is bound to stick with you for months after playing it, just like a great movie. Its pacing is damn near perfect and any fan of the genre should hit themselves over the head of they continue to ignore this one. Story-wise its one of the best games Ive ever played and one that I found myself discussing even with friends who dont care much about videogames.

If anything, it should be getting MORE praise than it has already received."
