The nights are growing longer, the air is colder and Christmas is almost upon us - meaning it's almost time to crown Game of the Year.
Games like The Witcher 3, Overwatch, Bloodborne and more have all duked it out to receive gaming's most prestigious award over the last couple of years. Game of the Year is a funny thing, however - almost every outlet will award its own Game of the Year, along with the official Game Awards held in December also doling out a prize.
There are always obvious frontrunners though, and some titles this year have completely blown gamers and critics away. 2017 has been an incredible year for gaming, with Nintendo exploding back onto the scene with the Switch and, perhaps more importantly, Breath of the Wild. Meanwhile, PlayStation has had a stunning year of its own, churning out quality exclusives one after the other in a relentless fashion.
With most of the year behind us, and an awful lot of the biggest hitters already out in the wild, several amazing titles are already vying for Game of the Year 2017.
