  1. Zelda botw is honestly the most over rated game of all time, played it for a week and got bored quickly, horizon zero dawn is a masterpiece..

  2. Subscribe to my channel for Nintendo switch gaming 🎮

  3. The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild ❤️🎮

  4. These are really well done videos. People don’t give IGN enough credit.

  5. Whats with all these "Zelda overrated" comments… You never see any comments of Nintendo fans being like "horizon overrated." Stop being so salty that Zelda beat Horizon… Like why are you calling it overrated when you've never even played it yourself… The game is rated extremely high by every critique for a reason…

  6. God people are still salty about zelda botw in this comment section

  7. God people are still salty about zelda botw in this comment section

  8. People who cry about BOTW being game of the year probably wanted Cuphead to win.

  9. I'm glad Gravity Rush 2 is in this list. That game gave me an reason to get a PS4.

  10. I just came to read all the salty Zelda comments!
    Nooww, where did I put my popcorn..?

  11. Didn’t realize resident evil 7 was an action adventure.

  12. 1. Breath of the Wild
    2. Assassin’s Creed Origins
    3. Super Mario Odyssey
    4. The Evil Within 2
    5. Horizon Zero Dawn
    6. Everything that isn’t Nier Automata

  13. I knew LoZ BoTW would beat games like HZD. HZD was all right, but it just couldn't touch BoTW. Nintendo did very well with BoTW, it's a beautiful game. A masterpiece pretty much.

  14. Games in this list is mostly ps4 games….xbox users would be pissed watching this video.

  15. For years game industries said "this will be the best year" but I would say 2017 is start to a great step for any game industry, things started getting big up until 2017 but the starting POINT WAS 2017. checkmate!

  16. Horizon Zero Dawn, Lost Legacy and Assassins Creed

  17. The Witcher 3 shits all over these game (I've played botw). It will be a long, long time before anything tops it…

  18. Nice to see Steamworld Dig 2 and Zelda!

  19. I feel like Wolfenstein II The New Colossus was totally snubbed here, it is far better than Resident Evil 7

  20. zelda breath of the wild is the best action adventure game ever.

  21. >Action Adventure Games
    >Don't put Nioh, the best action game this generation

    Yeah that's IGN.

  22. Nier Automata isn't on the list, yet you put RE7 on the action-adventure list. Ok IGN.

  23. It's funny how people forgot that Zelda was the only game to get a 10/10It's fine if you prefer other games, however.

  24. Evil Within 2 didn't make the list!? I've played most of these games and EW2 was my fav!

  25. If u have a switch without Zelda get a life and buy it

  26. Resident evil VII isn’t an action-adventure, it’s a survival horror
