Stevivor’s Action-Adventure GOTY 2017: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Stevivor’s Game of the Year (GOTY) 2017 continues today with the Best Action and/or Adventure title.

In a hotly contested category, with dozens of games suggested, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins has come out on top.

After taking a break and relieving franchise fatigue, Assassin’s Creed came back with a vengeance, surprising all with its new mix of parkour and RPG elements. Reviewer Jay Ball awarded the title a well-deserved 8.5/10 in his review.

Honourable mentions in this category go to Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4), Nier Automata (PC, PS4) and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PC, Xbox One, PS4).
