My Favourite Game (of 2017)

Ending 2017, the greatest year in gaming ever, with a bang.

It’s happening. We’re actually back.

Yes, My Favourite Game is well and truly back after a year away. It’s one episode, but we can’t just let this year go without paying tribute to what has been an incredible year in gaming and easily one of the greatest years in gaming ever, if not the greatest (I reckon it is).

For those who missed it, here’s why we’ve been gone for over a year until now. But the exciting thing is this is the start of us coming back properly.

Season 5 will drop staring Early 2018 and we’re stoked for you to listen to it. But in the meantime, My Favourite Game (of 2017) will help announce some of its lineup. You’ll hear from four guests for the upcoming season alongside twelve previous guests across Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4. And me natch (in fairness, you get me out of the way early on this year rather than waiting for the end of the show!).

As for the year in gaming overall, what a year its been. Never ever has there been a more appropriate time to celebrate gaming as a medium and form of entertainment (and fuck it, as an art form as well), especially in another shittastic year where the world has gone more to hell than it did at this time last year. In a year full of broad and diverse games from AAA, AA and indies alike, there is something for everyone to play.

In our annual special look back on the year, seventeen guests over five seasons worth of episodes talk of their favourite games of the year, some of which have managed to place within their GOAT lists, through eleven games.

With all that being said, here presents the game and guest lineup for this special – as well as part of the Season 5 lineup of My Favourite Game – in what is the longest episode of My Favourite Game ever. So sit back, relax and enjoy My Favourite Game (of 2017).
