    None of these games are relevant except for pubg and where is fortnite????

  2. Ariel Garcia on February 28th, 2018 12:35 pm

    i know right wherse Fortnite??

  3. :clap: :clap: on March 7th, 2018 4:32 pm

    Fortnite had a ton of potential until they bolted on a bunch of dirty f2p garbage on to it. Want to get better gear? Swipe that credit card. A new hero? Better pay up. Sure you can get XP from grinding missions, but you need loot boxes to get people or items to put the XP in to. The game is so stingy with the necessary currency to buy those loot boxes that coughing up more money seems like the only way to make a reasonable amount of progress. It’s sad to see a game that could have been amazing get dragged down by such a terrible business model. Don’t bother with this game.

  4. :clap: :clap: on March 7th, 2018 4:33 pm

    And while your at it might as well buy some loot boxes pal.

  5. apjjavoijojoasjdgkn on March 8th, 2018 3:21 pm

  11. Moist on February 28th, 2018 5:28 pm

  12. :clap: :clap: on March 7th, 2018 4:41 pm

    Check your facts.

    Overwatch was released in 2016, if it was released in 2017 it would be on this list, but it isn’t, check your facts.

  13. LOL-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:42 pm

    Overwatch is just……. not good. Your welcome. For helping you.

  14. on on February 27th, 2018 12:52 pm

    I agree with denis, well with most of these games but games like splatoon are horrible.

  15. Splattoon-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:39 pm

  19. Brandon on March 2nd, 2018 12:42 pm

    They probably were waiting for all the chapters for bendy too come at.

  20. Man Man on March 7th, 2018 4:28 pm

    Bendy the Ink machine was a horrible game, -1/100

  21. michael orengo on March 8th, 2018 4:53 pm

  22. Ariel Garcia on February 28th, 2018 12:35 pm

    i know right wherse Fortnite??

  23. Un-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:31 pm

    STOP IT WITH THE FORTNIGHT COMMENTS. IT WAS A HORRIBLE GAME, GET PUBG NOW.

  24. Drab GamerBoss on February 28th, 2018 2:17 pm

    WHAT ABOUT TF2 (TEAM FORTRESS 2)

  25. Brandon on March 2nd, 2018 12:34 pm

    I think it’s talking about the best games that released in 2017.

  26. girl-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:44 pm

    We go to school. If you are going to comment something, think before you comment. PLEASE.

  27. Moist on February 28th, 2018 5:30 pm

    Surprised that Prey, Uncharted and Injustice 2 wasn’t on here :/

  28. Nice-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:35 pm

    AGAIN, if I don’t know what these games are. WHY SHOULD THESE GAMES BE ON HERE.

  29. Moist on March 7th, 2018 5:41 pm

    Kind of sad that you don’t know what uncharted is.

  30. Pablo on March 13th, 2018 4:15 pm

    Maybe you should do some research instead of playing the same game everyday before putting up a fight against something that you don’t even know existed.

  31. Moist on February 28th, 2018 9:22 pm

    Also Evil Within 2

  32. david on March 1st, 2018 5:10 pm

    UMM HAVE YOU NOT SEEN FORTNITE

  33. :clap: :clap: on March 7th, 2018 4:37 pm

    I in fact have seen Fortnite my friend. When I say Fortnite I should say a piece of hot garbage that barely qualifies as a game.

  34. Whamen-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:37 pm

    If i see a fortnight comment again on this website then I will personally destroy all the games that exist in the world. PLEASE STOP, this game is just a baby version of PUBG.

  35. non sexual on March 5th, 2018 12:37 pm

    all of these games are trash this article should go under opinion

  36. Birdy on March 7th, 2018 4:51 pm

    non sexual, this is not an opinions article, this is fun stuff, and was made for fun stuff. If you actually read the article you can see that there was none of his opinion in this article.
    The only people who show the opinions in this article is the publics voice in his research in the actual article and the comments section. And if you have happened to read all of the other fun stuff articles that you would know that fun stuff can be whatever the author of it wants it to be. If you look at the crafts articles you can see that this has a very similar format and writing process. Another difference between regular articles and fun stuff articles is that regular articles are over 300 words, while most fun stuff articles ar under that. non sexual I hope that you can see why this belongs in fun stuff

  37. ddaavviid on March 5th, 2018 12:52 pm

    ehhh :((

  38. haha on March 5th, 2018 12:55 pm

    lmaooo this kid literally just looked up top 10 games and just copied the first results. No effort put into this article.:((

  39. cooool on March 6th, 2018 12:39 pm

    good job

  40. cooool on March 6th, 2018 1:05 pm
  41. Anthony Ponton on March 7th, 2018 4:41 pm

    If you go to the link it just is pictures, this is not a thing you can copy with words. Full capital words is not a proper way to type. There’s no period at the end of the essay. So has only 1 o, not 8 o’s. I give this essay a C-.

  42. Rene on March 6th, 2018 9:10 pm

    Sonic Mania had the score 86% which is good. I think Fortnite is trash.

  43. Sexual-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:40 pm

    Bonic-Bania has a score of -100% on my list. P.S. I agree with this comment because fortnight SUCKS.

  44. STEVE on March 7th, 2018 11:03 am

    MINECRAFT IS NOT ON THIS, IM TRIGGERED

  45. Anthony Ponton on March 7th, 2018 4:36 pm

    …The FitnessGram Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute.

  46. Fortnight-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:38 pm

    I know right minecraft was a piece of art, A very “good” piece of art.

  47. :clap: :clap: on March 7th, 2018 4:39 pm

    I am very sorry, this is probably the only logical comment I’ve seen so far.

  48. Carlos Lozano on March 7th, 2018 3:21 pm

    BOI WHERE IS COD WWII!!!

  49. Un-Sexual on March 7th, 2018 4:30 pm

    COD was a horrible game. Why tho.

  50. fortnite on March 7th, 2018 9:09 pm

    fortnite is very fun game that is why it has expanded so much and the company is rich. lmao all these forntite hate comments are salty people. smh

  51. Autocorrect on March 8th, 2018 9:28 am

    Star with a capital and indent, also very fun game is not proper, maybe a very fun game would make more sense. Imao is not a really word. Salty is also not a word used in that phrase, it should be used like “The cake was salty”.Start sentence with capital, and smh is not a word. D grade

  52. cool on March 8th, 2018 12:14 pm

    nice article

  53. Garran smith on March 9th, 2018 11:43 am

    WHERES MEH LITTLE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. Garran smith on March 14th, 2018 11:40 am
