Print media may be a shadow of its former self but in the UK, one publication continues to earn the respect of gamers and developers - and that's EDGE

The magazine has been around since the early '90s and regularly runs yearly awards to celebrate the best games, hardware and developers of the past 12 months. Issue #315 features the 2017 list, and it should come as little surprise to learn that Nintendo features quite heavily.

The top 10 games of 2017, according to EDGE magazine, are as follows:

  1. Zelda: BOTW
  2. Super Mario Odyssey 
  3. What Remains of Edith Finch 
  4. PUBG
  5. ARMS
  6. Nex Machina
  7. Nioh
  8. Yakuza 0
  9. Polybius
  10. Divinity: Original Sin II 

The Nintendo Switch won the year's "Best Hardware" award, with the SNES Classic Edition coming in as a runner-up. Nintendo was Publisher of the Year, while Nintendo EPD was Studio of the Year.

Elsewhere, ARMS won Best Visual Design and Zelda: Breath of the Wild scooped the Best Audio Design award, with Splatoon 2 being a runner-up in the latter category.

All of which rounds off a pretty spectacular 2017 for Nintendo, we're sure you'll agree.
