And it's that time of year again. I can't believe it's been six months since I was chugging down gin and tonics down a dodgy boozer, ushering in new year. We've reached the halfway point of 2017, and what a year it's shaping up to be for gaming. When we did this same Up For Debate at this point last year it was a fairly strong offering, but H1 2017 has just blown that away. Things have cooled lately, but that first four months was an absolute blitzkrieg of games sure to trouble the Game of the Year category during the Global Game Awards 2017.

We've had a frankly ridiculous smorgasbord of hits, including a reinvention of survival horror with Resident Evil, one of the greatest sci-fi tales ever in Nier Automata, Zelda finally going truly open world, and we hired a turkey to run our real estate business in Yakuza Zero. The choices have literally been endless.

Apologies also if you're favourite game didn't make it. I've tried to be as thorough as possible but obviously not every game can make it into the poll. Do be sure to let everyone know what game it is in the comments section below though.

As for the poll, you've got three votes with which to pick your favourite three games of 2017. Oh and don't worry, I've resisted putting in Rocket League and R6: Siege, the real best games of 2017.
