These were some of my favourite books, films and videogames in 2017. They weren’t necessarily released in 2017, and 2017 wasn’t necessarily the first time I read/watched/played them, but they were all enjoyed in 2017 none the less.
I tended to favour ghost stories, horror and science fiction.
‘All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries’ by Martha Wells
‘Beauty, Glory, Thrift’ by Alison Tam
‘The Gods of HP Lovecraft’ by Adam Nevill, Martha Wells, Laird Barron, Bentley Little, Jonathan Maberry, Brett J. Talley, Christopher Golden, Joe R. Lansdale, Seanan McGuire, Rachel Caine
‘The House of Shatterd Wings’ by Aliette de Bodard
‘The Phillip K Dick Mega Pack’ by Philip K Dick
‘The Power’ by Naomi Alderman
‘Wylding Hall’ by Elizabeth Hand
I watched loads of ghost stories, horror and science fiction films but you’ll see some others too.
Initially my preference was for open-ended loot shooters but I switched to adventure games with shorter run-times by the end of the year.
