This year has been a pretty wild ride. With unexpected gems like Horizon Zero: Dawn and NieR: Automata, and, of course, the heavy-hitting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 2017 just might go down in history as one of the best years for games.
The following list was accumulated by Metacritic. About Metacritic: Metacritic is a website that aggregates reviews of media products: music albums, video games, films, TV shows, and formerly, books. For each product, the scores from each review are averaged (a weighted average). Metacritic was created by Jason Dietz, Marc Doyle, and Julie Doyle Roberts in 1999.
The list you see above is the top 10 highest-reviewed Xbox One games of 2017 thus far. As you can see, What Remains of Edith Finch takes the crown as the most critically praised title of the bunch, and it’s well-deserved!
The Hot Wheels Stand-alone DLC for Forza Horizon 3 made it all the way to the number three spot. We here at Enthusiast Gaming loved the vanilla Forza Horizon 3 title, you can check out our video review below.
