Top video games of 2017.

In the wealth of outstanding video games released in 2017, several titles stood out among the rest. Check out some of the best video games of 2017.

Finding the best video games

Every year features a wealth of fantastic games that provide many hours of enjoyment. 2018 has been no exception. Take a look at some of the best games of the year, as well as some of the hot games set for release in 2019.

Looking for the best multiplayer games.

In multiplayer games, you compete against or cooperate with other players in real time. Multiplayer games have been huge for some time now. Some of the biggest games that hit the market in 2018 featured multiplayer modes. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Fallout 76 and Battlefield V were some of the big games in 2018 that featured multiplayer modes.

If you are new to multiplayer gaming or are a veteran multiplayer gamer, a gaming headset is essential to communicate with your teammates during the action. Best Buy has a wide assortment of gaming headsets for gamers of all types.

What are the best video games for your console?

Most gaming companies release games that are compatible with more than one platform. However, each console also boasts exclusive games that showcase that console's best features. For instance, God of War, an exclusive for the PS4 console, has been one of the best-selling games of 2018. As Kratos, a fallen god made mortal, you will take on an array of wild beasts across a punishing Norse landscape. Sea of Thieves is an Xbox One console exclusive released earlier this year. In this popular multiplayer pirate game, you can sail the high seas, raid other ships, and become a pirate legend.

Since its release in 2017, the Nintendo Switch console has been a huge success among gamers of all stripes. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the biggest Nintendo Switch release in 2018. This game features dozens of classic Nintendo characters battling each other in a showdown for the ages. In its multiplayer mode, you can take on your friends and try to come out on top.

Enhance your video game experience.

Video game accessories are essential to making the most of your gaming. As discussed above, gaming headsets are very useful for multiplayer gaming. An extra controller is critical if you want to have friends over to play. If you are thinking about giving the gamer in your life a present, a PS4 or Xbox gift card would certainly be appreciated.

What's next?

As great as 2018 was, 2019 figures to be another strong year for gamers. One of the most anticipated games of 2019 is Kingdom Hearts 3. This game blends action sequences and characters from different Disney and Pixar films. Other hot action games include Anthem and Tom Clancy's The Division 2. If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic games, don't sleep on Days Gone, a PS4 exclusive coming out this year. Whatever your preferred type of game and preferred type of console, know that 2019 will have something for you.
