2017 was a pretty big year for video games, and on December 7, Geoff Keighley will attempt to distinguish the best of the best with the fourth installment of The Game Awards.

Super Mario Odyssey First Impressions: The Jumpman Cometh

It isn't often that a game comes like Super Mario Odyssey comes around. That's true from both a gameplay standpoint and a release one. Since Super Mario 64 launched way back in 1996, we've only had three other open-ended 3D Mario games: Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Nintendo, it would seem, likes to take its sweet time on these games, and that's an approach that has paid off time and again, as 64, Sunshine, and both Galaxy titles can be counted among the best games ever made.
