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 so far, as well as hot releases for the fall and winter.

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 yet to hit the market in 2018 feature multiplayer modes. Fallout 76 is perhaps the most highly anticipated multiplayer game to launch this year. Bethesda, Fallout's creator, promises that every human you see in this game will be a real human gamer. Other upcoming releases featuring multiplayer include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V.

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. The most highly anticipated Switch release for 2018 is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This game, scheduled for release in December, features dozens of classic Nintendo characters battling each other in a showdown for the ages.

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?

The rest of 2018 is filled with games that people can't wait to play. In addition to the games discussed above, future releases such as Red Dead Redemption II and Marvel's Spider-Man are sure to put smiles on many faces. Whatever this year brings, you can count on Best Buy to be a great resource for your gaming needs.
