I, alone, will likely never play enough games released in one year to do any sort of Game of the Year list. I’m spread pretty thin across a variety of generations. Nothing I have to say about 2017 is all encompassing.
However, I do have a mix of thoughts from throughout the year that might be nice to sort of bundle into a weird list thing.
A bit of a forewarning, I didn’t play any post game or online content for this game as an update error corrupted my game file.
A good chunk of the Vita’s Japanese library is made up of cooperative monster hunting games. Freedom Wars is yet another take on the formula popularized by Capcom’s Monster Hunter series. However, the game stands out thanks to its player movement, variety in mission structure and focus on story and characters.
