Game of the Year 2017
Super Mario Odyssey
Really, we’ve ran out of superlatives to explain Nintendo’s confounding and continued ability to conjure up hundreds of unique ideas for each subsequent 3D Mario game. Just when you think 3D platforming has reached its zenith, along comes Nintendo to prove that fresh ideas are still in plentiful supply. While nearly every other platformer is content to borrow from proven successes or lean heavily on nostalgia, Super Mario Odyssey goes above and beyond in reinventing the wheel.
