The days feel shorter, it is cold outside and we might get snow soon. No matter what, Winter is coming. What brings winter as well? Christmas! Although I am not a big fan of Christmas I sure am a fan of video games. I will bring you this list of my top 5 must have steam games I had a lot of fun with in 2017! So let’s jump right in to it!
5: Stardew Valley
Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG!
You’ve inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? It won’t be easy. Ever since Joja Corporation came to town, the old ways of life have all but disappeared. The community center, once the town’s most vibrant hub of activity, now lies in shambles. But the valley seems full of opportunity. With a little dedication, you might just be the one to restore Stardew Valley to greatness!
Stardew Valley Is such a relaxing game. I started playing this game on my livestream. This game was so much bigger then I expected and I really had a lot of fun with it. I played this game for 23 hours In 2 sections on stream. Stardew Valley is the game for you if you like relaxing games where you make your own farm and just have fun in the world itself. I would also recommend this game if you are a fan of the Harvest Moon series!
This game is €13.99 on steam and worth every single cent of it!
4: Last Day of June
Join Carl and June on what begins as a magical outing to their favorite spot, and try to unlock the sequence of events that could save the day – and June’s life – in this cinematic experience that will compel you to ask yourself: “What would I do to save the one I love?”
This game is such a hidden gem in the big world of so many great games. When I played this game I just didn’t know what to expect from it. At first I didn’t like the art style of the characters. But also in the beginning I just thought it was weird that there was no talking or storytelling in it as well. What a surprise this game actually was. You don’t need actual words to make a good story, you just need to craft the game very well to let you feel those emotions and it did. I completed this game in one run sometimes a bit confused on what I had to do but nothing was really brain crushing. This also is one of the 3 games who actually made me cry and have goosebumps all over the place! This game is just a hidden gem but what am I happy that I actually found it. If you like adventure, puzzle game with a huge atmosphere then this is the game for you!
This game is €19.99 on steam. A bit expensive for such a short (2-3 hour long) game. But I actually think it is worth it.
Immerse yourself in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with color and life. Perform fluid acrobatics as the Diver using graceful swimming controls. Discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life. Interact with schools of thousands of fish that procedurally respond to you, each other, and predators. Linger in epic seascapes and explore aquatic ecosystems modeled with unprecedented detail. Descend into the heart of the ocean where ancient secrets lie forgotten. But beware, dangers lurk in the depths. “ABZÛ” is from the oldest mythologies; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
This game was on my wishlist for such a long time until the Steam Summer Sale. I bought with a huge discount and played the whole game twice on my stream. I saw the art style and I just completely fell in love with this beautiful underwater world. In the beginning it felt like it only was a underwater walking simulator but damn I was wrong. There is a beautiful sort of story line in it with such beautiful master crafted worlds. This game literally gave me goosebumps all way through. I just feel bad I bought it on sale haha.
This game is €19.99 on steam. Is it worth so much? Yes I think it is even though the story is 2 hours long. This game is not a real game but a real experience!
2: Ori and the Blind Forest (Definitive Edition)
The forest of Nibel is dying. After a powerful storm sets a series of devastating events in motion, Ori must journey to find courage and confront a dark nemesis to save the forest of Nibel. “Ori and the Blind Forest” tells the tale of a young orphan destined for heroics, through a visually stunning Action-Platformer crafted by Moon Studios. Featuring hand-painted artwork, meticulously animated character performance, a fully orchestrated score and dozens of new features in the Definitive Edition, “Ori and the Blind Forest” explores a deeply emotional story about love and sacrifice, and the hope that exists in us all.
I completed this game for 10+ times. I recently started learning to speedrun this game. And just every time I play it I just don’t get bored! This game is in my opinion The best story line, Platformer and adventure game ever made! Those are some big words but it sure is. I started playing the first version of Ori and I completely fell in love with Ori. The beginning made me cry, The music gives me goosebumps and the atmosphere is just perfect. This game is a must have for any fan of platformer, adventure games.
This game is €19.99 on steam. In my opinion this game is even worth more then this. Maybe even worth €39.99! Just buy this game and I will promise you, you won’t be disappointed!
1: Rocket League
Soccer meets driving once again in the long-awaited, physics-based sequel to the beloved arena classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars!
A futuristic Sports-Action game, Rocket League, equips players with booster-rigged vehicles that can be crashed into balls for incredible goals or epic saves across multiple, highly-detailed arenas. Using an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, Rocket League relies on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in this unbelievable, high-octane re-imagining of association football.
Rocket League my all time favorite but also my worst nightmare. This game gives you so much and no match is the same. I am a very calm gamer mostly but this game just makes me rage so hard sometimes! I collected over 1700 hours in this game after almost 2 years of playing (2 years in March). It is the main game on my stream and after so many hours I just still love it so much. I just can’t find the words for this game. I met so many gamer friends because of this game. Most people on my stream are from the Rocket League community and I’m just glad I started playing this game (even though I hated it at first). For a full review click here.
This game is €19.99 on steam. Just go there and buy it, play it, love it, hate it but most of all have fun with it!
