On this episode of 1 Minute Rant, displayed above or over on our YouTube channel, I have some musings about how crazy the first half of this year has been in terms of gaming. Sure, last year had some very big highlights, as well as some plunging lowlights, but on the whole all the talking points were spread out nicely over the 12 months. Overall, 2016 Vs 2017 is a showcase of disparity.

Early 2017 was a conveyor belt of quality. So many well-received games have already come out: Resident Evil 7Horizon Zero Dawn, Breath of the Wild, to name a few, as well as a brand new Nintendo console that seems to be doing rather well.

Not that I’m complaining, but personally, I’ve only been able to play perhaps 3 out of the 10 games on my list for this year, because, you know, I’m a human with real life responsibilities. Maybe next time all the developers could get together and have a little chat about something called scheduling? That’s pretty pie-in-the-sky thinking, but a man can dream…

Big thanks to Microsoft though for not making the problem worse. I’m sure focusing on Project Scorpio will magically fix all your problems…

What do you think of the great games rush of 2017? Let us know in the comments section below.
