An amazing year in gaming? Or just a little bit meh? Hayden Meikle and Simon Bishop hand out their awards for 2017.

Annual games series face an uphill battle to innovate, and differentiate themselves from their predecessors, so that they’re worth buying year after year. Happily, 'F1 2017' continues its strong upwards trend.

New Zealand game developers have posted a new high score - earning a record $100 million in annual revenue.
