2017 will go down as one of the most memorable years in gaming history. First, Nintendo released the much awaited Nintendo Switch followed by Legend of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild who apparently won a lot of Game of the Year awards. Super Mario Odyssey was also released in 2017 which got a lot of perfect scores from the critics and gamers. PS4 also had a great 2017 having released a lot of exclusives such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Yakuza 0, etc., and who would forget Microsoft releasing the world’s most powerful console – Xbox One X later that year.
It was indeed a great year and it only means a lot of profit to retailers such as Amazon who releases the top 10 best-selling video games of 2017.
- Super Mario Odyssey
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch)
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Call of Duty: WWII (PS4)
- Call of Duty: WWII (Xbox One)
- Splatoon 2
- Pokémon Ultra Sun
- Pokémon Ultra Moon
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Wii U)
7 out of 10 best-selling games of Amazon are Nintendo first party games and 4 of it are for Nintendo Switch. Surprisingly though, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe beat The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in terms of sale as Mario Kart 8 was first released on Nintendo Wii U console and Breath of the Wild won several Game of the Year awards.
