Game of the Year 2017
Only the best of the best are nominated for the prestigious Game Debate Global Game Awards Game of The Year title, and there can be only one. We are all looking for that one supreme game that dropped our jaws over the past 12 months. Nominees are usually highly competent in every facet that makes a title brilliant and all of them are video game titans that stand above the rest. These titles reach the lofty heights where the Half-Life and Elder Scrolls of gaming history dwell. They push the industry forward, innovating with rich new features and exceptional gameplay, all the while perfecting mechanics that set the template for every other title to aspire to.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
Less of a surprise than MachineGames’ original Wolfenstein but that’s to take nothing away from the achievements of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. In an age where multiplayer is crowbarred into everything, Wolfenstein 2 is a blessed relief of campy violence, larger-than-life characters and a genuinely evocative ‘What if?’ tale.

Scorching
Yakuza 0
A niche series for far too long, Yakuza 0 proved the perfect entry for players put off by a franchise that’s six games deep. A timely release just six months before the remake of the original Yakuza, Yakuza Zero is a prequel set in the hazy days of the 80s, when mobile phones were the size of suitcases and VHS was cutting edge. Yakuza 0 is the perfect blend of melodrama, wacky humour and martial arts action.
