There is no doubt 2017 is a load year with a lot of potential and a lot of game time waiting to be spent, talked about, and discussed. With so much potential, I had to truly think about my most anticipated game for 2017. With the Nintendo Switch right around the corner it would be too easy to say The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild and call it a day, but after a lot of thinking I’m going to have to say Persona 5.
Persona 5 is easily my most anticipated game. Persona 3 brought me into the world of Shin Megami Tensei, and a deep high school obsession with all the SMT games began. Persona 4 was released eight years ago and we got Catherine in between, which is still a fantastic game. Persona 5 is something I have been eagerly anticipating before it was officially announced and all we heard was rumors about its progress. Its release is right around the corner, and while I haven’t bought a collector’s edition or really pre-ordered any game in a few years, Persona 5’s Collector’s edition sits pre-ordered on my Amazon orders list waiting for the day it can take my money and send me what will no doubt be truly great.
