The "Must Have" Video Games Xmas List 2017

2017 has seen a massive amount of progress and innovation, including the release of the new Xbox One X console from Microsoft. Boasting itself as the most powerful console ever made to date, Microsoft has brought true – Native 4K graphics to the worlds TV sets in beautiful fashion.

Not only that, but we have seen a number of recent releases onto consoles which are definitely on every gamer's Christmas list this year, guaranteeing that the worlds gaming fans will behave like a good boy or girl until the big day.

Here is the list of 4 games which are on our gaming wish lists in 2017


Taking the gaming world by absolute storm, the 1930’s inspired Boss-rush game has been incredibly successful in capturing the hearts and minds of critics. Being announced at E3 and pushed back repeatedly, the game was rumored to have been scrapped.

However, against everyone’s expectations, Cuphead was finally released and was better than ever. Renowned for its crushing difficulty, Cuphead rewards players with a visual animated style which is unmatched by any game to date. Addicting in its infuriating difficulty, the game has created buzz around the globe and is most certainly on the list for anyone who hasn’t played it, this Christmas.

Assassin's Creed: Origins

The Assassin's Creed franchise is back with a bang as Ubisoft delivers another visually awe-worthy release set in the baking deserts of ancient Egypt. Fans are hailing it as the best in the series in years, and utilizing the new 4k abilities of the Xbox One X, the level of detail and polish is truly astounding. Following partly in the footsteps of its predecessors, the same familiar core gameplay is present, but slight changes to the game's combat mechanics have given the game a new feel.

Assassin's Creed: Origins has adopted a new combat system closer to that of an RPG with point based health systems, damage ratings etc. Clearly veering away from the predominantly realistic gameplay, an arcade influence has found its way into the newest release.

On launch, the game had a number of technical issues but have reportedly been ironed out – the worst of which was on the PC port. Despite the rocky launch, Assassin's Creed: Origins is a must have many of the gaming community and finds itself on the Christmas list.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

The Nazi-bashing fast-paced shooter is back and kicking along with the iconic – although older and frail – B.J Blazkowicz in an alternate universe in which Nazi Germany won the Second World War and have joined forces with the KKK to rule over America.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has the player shoot, burn, and vaporize their way through the high-tech Nazi hordes and deal a devastating blow to the Third Reich. Wolfenstein has yet again gone all out in its absurd gameplay and plot lines, even going as far as having this latest game feature Adolf Hitler himself.

A staple amongst gamers and a tried and true example of a smooth, well-oiled first-person shooter with charm, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is on the list.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Lastly, the controversial Star Wars Battlefront 2 makes the Christmas list. Recently being involved in a major dispute over the use of a “Loot Box” system and accusations of a “pay to win” mechanic, Battlefront 2 has had more than a questionable launch.

Despite this, however, looking objectively at the game itself, Battlefront 2 has made a number of improvements on the first game published by EA. A beautiful single-player campaign has been introduced along with an improved "starfighter" mode which lets players battle it in state of the art fighter ships, all perfectly modeled after the original props used in the Star Wars movies themselves.

Battlefront 2 has great sound design, equally impressive graphics and gives players the feeling of being immersed in the Star Wars universe brilliantly.

If you’re uninspired about what to get a friend or family member for Christmas or just haven’t got a clue what an appropriate game would be, choose one off this list for a guaranteed happy Christmas morning. Be prepared to have your TV taken over by the whole family.
