Best First-Person Shooters of 2017

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch (in 2018)

I probably wasn’t the only one skeptical of Bethesda’s ability to put out a great Wolfenstein game when The First Order was announced in 2013, but a year later, the game was released and subsequently nominated for Golden Joystick’s 2014 Game of the Year award! It may not have won, but it’s obvious how well the game was received.

Well, it's a few years later, and we’ve got the sequel, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus ... which was awarded Best Action Game at The Game Awards 2017.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus packages that frantic, fast-paced FPS gameplay that the series is so well known for into a spectacularly imaginative story -- and it’s actually a pretty good story to boot. If you’re looking for a Nazi-killing simulator, you can’t really go wrong with any of the Wolfenstein games, but The New Colossus is the latest, and certainly one of the greatest, entries in the series.
