NHL 17

Recommended Posts

NHL 17 is being released in just two weeks and I'm pretty excited for it, to be honest. I got excited for NHL 15 and, you know... that game was trash. I got excited for NHL 16 and it was better by 15, but it still wasn't good. And now we got 17 coming out, and I gotta say, it's lookin' good. 

Anyone else buyin' NHL 17? I sure am, 'cause I think EA Sports made a decent Next Gen hockey game for once...

Leave your thoughts below and what not. I'd like to see your guys opinions.

Really Blaise? That's just low... the last EA NHL game on Old Gen is Legacy Edition. Everyone should be switching to Next Gen consoles by now.

That's just my opinion.

This is blasphemy. SOME people have been trying to switch but we just can't afford it because even though prices are dropping it's not relatively "cheap" right now.

And game developers are cutting off features from last gen, like Bungie cutting off Iron Banner in Destiny to last gen, so we really have no choice when it comes to online play and stuff like that. Soon enough they WILL cut Xbox 360 servers, and possibly disable achievements for last gen console users to forcefully switch us over.

I still play NHL 09 from time to time because it gives me memories of when me and my dad would play it. I still think of it every time I hear "Nine in the Afternoon." It was a solid hockey game.

I won't be trying NHL 17 anyway, because I'm fine with my NHL 09, and I can get a used copy of like NHL 11 from Gamestop for like 10 dollars or less by now. 60 dollars for a hockey game I'll only play maybe twice a month is a big waste.

NHL 09 is crap compared to NHL 14 imo...

But NHL 14 doesn't hold the memories and sentimental value 09 does.

Besides, graphics don't make a good game.

In 09 there's little to no game modes.

In NHL 14, there's alot of game modes and they have alot of variety in them...

A hockey game shouldn't be:

  • spending 30 years as a GM (basically until you die in the game)
  • spending 10+ years as your own player
  • spending infinite years in a dynasty
  • spending infinite years on everything else
  • having a bunch of game modes that make no sense

A hockey game can be:

  • managing a team for a few years as a GM
  • playing as a team in a dynasty
  • exhibition matches

Infinite game modes also doesn't make a good game. Quality over quantity.

Alright, alright... I'm just letting out my opinion. In my opinion, I think NHL 14 is better than NHL 09...
