First Annual Completionator Community Top 10


published on 12/19/2017

The 2017 Completionator Community Top 10 voting has come to a close and I want to thank everyone who participated in this event. This time of year gaming websites are full of Game of the Year awards and Video Game Award shows are becoming more like the Oscars each year. We thought it would be fun to come up with our own video game award that you, the members of the Completionator community could vote on. Unlike other Game of the Year awards, the games people could vote for were for all games ever, not just those released in 2017. The only rule is the vote had to be for a game the person played in 2017

This year we had 25 people submit votes on 182 different games. The votes were given point values based on how the games were placed in the person’s stack. So first place received 10 points and tenth placed received 1 point. We tallied up the scores and now we will reveal 2017 Completionator Community Top 10!

10 - Grand Theft Auto V

Release Date: 9/17/2013
Number of Owners: 545
Average User Rating: 92%
2017 Completions: 8

GTA V is the oldest game to be featured on the top 10 this year. The game is over 4 years old and Rockstar is still putting out updates. Will there be a GTA VI?

9 - Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition

Release Date: 6/14/2016
Number of Owners: 121
Average User Rating: 94%
2017 Completions: 6

Ori and the Blind Forest might have had the least amount of completions among the top 10 but the three votes it received put it in 9th place this year. With an overall user rating of 94%, this game is definitely worth checking out.

8 - Inside

Release Date: 7/7/2016
Number of Owners: 155
Average User Rating: 83%
2017 Completions: 16

This fairly short indie game has won many awards in addition to it's 8th place finish on the Completionator Top 10, including Best Independent Game from the 2016 Game Awards.

7- Sonic Mania

Release Date: 8/15/2017
Number of Owners: 36
Average User Rating: 93%
2017 Completions: 8

After many years of lackluster Sonic games, Sonic Mania is considered to be a really solid fun game. Developed by fans of the Sonic franchise, this Sonic game has some publications calling this the best game in the series. With a user rating of 93% the Completionator community agrees.

6 - Shovel Knight

Release Date: 6/26/2014
Number of Owners: 338
Average User Rating: 85%
2017 Completions: 13

Shovel Knight is another indie game that really took off. Taking advantage of the 8-bit retro trend, Shovel Knight continues to thrive 3 years after it's release. With two additional free DLC and one more on the way and with it available across virtually all current platforms this hit game is worth picking up.

5 - Stardew Valley

Release Date: 2/26/2016
Number of Owners: 412
Average User Rating: 86%
2017 Completions: 10

Similar to Shovel Knight, Stardew Valley is an indie game that started out small but continues to get ported to all the major consoles. The game was developed by a guy named Eric Barone in 2011 that graduated from college and decided to design a game on his own. Not getting a real job after college really paid off for this guy!

4 - Horizon Zero Dawn

Release Date: 2/28/2017
Number of Owners: 87
Average User Rating: 91%
2017 Completions: 20

Horizon may have gotten the shaft at the Video Game Awards but not here on Completionator. You can't go wrong with hunting some giant robot dinosaurs!

3 - Persona 5

Release Date: 9/15/2016
Number of Owners: 93
Average User Rating: 94%
2017 Completions: 32

The 5th installment in the Persona series has had a lot of people excited for it since it's release. In addition to it's 3rd place finish here, Persona 5 recently received "Best Role Playing Game" from the Video Game Awards. With an Average User Rating of 94% which ties for the highest rating on the list, the Completionator community agrees!

2 - Super Mario Odyssey

Release Date: 10/27/2017
Number of Owners: 56
Average User Rating: 94%
2017 Completions: 15

Super Mario Odyssey just released a little over a month ago but the game has already won all sorts of awards and placed 2nd on the Top 10! Many consider this the best Mario game ever, even surpassing the beloved Mario 64. This is another game on the list that tied for the highest Average User Rating of 94%. We really know how to pick the great ones!

1 - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Release Date: 3/3/2017
Number of Owners: 203
Average User Rating: 93%
2017 Completions: 28

The number one game on the Completionator Top 10 for 2017 is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! This was the most anticipated game in 2016 and when it finally released in March 2017 fans of the series were blown away. The first truly open world Zelda did not disappoint. BOTW received game of the year at the Video Game Awards and is expected to continue to rake in the hardware through the rest of the year including the prestigious 2017 Completionator Community 1st Prize!
