A new month. A fresh start. A chance for me to finally come clean and admit I got the month wrong in the last edition of Best Games... Anyway, after a barnstorming February things are about to get even hotter in March. We truly are being spoilt. March is the new November. We kicked the month off yesterday with Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the highest scoring game in a decade. But March 2017 has so, so much more to offer than Zelda. All aboard the N7 for a quick look at the best games coming out this month.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - March 3rd / Nintendo Switch, Wii U

 

Snipperclips - March 3rd / Nintendo Switch

 

Nier: Automata - March 7th / PlayStation 4, PC TBA

Nier Automata System Requirements

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands - March 7th / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Ghost Recon Wildlands System Requirements

Styx: Shards of Darkness - March 14th / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

 

Styx: Shards of Darkness System Requirements

 

Mass Effect Andromeda - March 21st / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Toukiden 2 - March 21st / PC, PlayStation 4

 

Toukiden 2 System Requirements


Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 HD Remix - March 28th / PlayStation 4

Thimbleweed Park - March 30th / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, iOS

Thimbleweed Park System Requirements

Disc Jam - March TBA / PC, PlayStation 4

I mean, hot damn, would you look at that selection? There truly is something for everyone. One of two may invariable disappoint but we know Zelda and Nier Automata are legitimately awesome, Mass Effect Andromeda looks insanely promising, and what I've played of Disc Jam shows it could be the new contender to the Rocket League, indie multiplayer smash hit crown.

So which of March's finest games are you planning to pick up this month? Let us know why you are/aren't below!

ME Andromeda and Nier look interesting.


Not really interested in Wildlands. Mainly because it's a Ubi game, and they have released a lot of crap in recent times.

None of these games appeal to me. I'm not a fan of futuristic/sci-fi fantasy games that don't represent realism. I'm more of a realistic open world game fan. Games like GTA, Mafia, Watch Dogs are what I mainly play, along with a few shooters like Battlefield, and Rainbow Six Siege. It's not a very good time for gaming with people who play the same games as I.

While I'm as excited for Andromeda as anyone here it's still good to see Thimbleweed Park finally out.

Btw,found a pic of the back of Halo Wars 2 1080Ti as recommended,but didn't they just announced it a few days back?Odd it seems.

You're allowed to vote multiple times because some people might be planning to pick up more than one game next month :)

I really hope Nier will have good mouse and keyboard support. Cautiously optimistic :/

In the UK, Horizon: Zero Dawn was released on the 1st of March. So that's my pick. Such a good game so far.
Other than that, I'll be picking up Nier when it gets it's PC release.

March wasn't a good month for games to be released because of Mass Effect Andromeda.

Got my switch and Zelda limited on launch and oh god it was so much worth it. I can say that it is the best game I ever played and possibly the best ever made.

EA opted to not do a physical release of Mass Effect Andromeda, very upset about this.
