Each week, MPG staff will pick one special title to brag about! Whether it tickles our funny bone, or jerks a tear, we’ll give you the low-down on the games that stand out to us.
About this weeks winner…
Golf Story is an uber-cute and silly golfing simulator that combines the relaxation of golfing with the stress of crushing defeat looming in the shadows. Take pride in driving that little white ball all across the eight unique environments , cleverly designed to simultaneously inspire joy and rage! Enjoy going head-to-head with your friends in varied and select-able modes, difficulties and maps.
If you’re all about that campaign though, (obviously) Golf Story has got you covered. Nothing beats performing at your peak to an audience of persnickety geese with nothing better to do. Bouncing from objective to objective with nothing to guide you but wind and whimsy (and demands from jerks), you’ll meet plenty of colorful characters just jumping at the chance to challenge you to task that they themselves could not complete, talking down to you the whole way. You’ll relish the opportunity to prove an entire community wrong as you complete tasks, mostly for cash and prestige, but also to rub it in their rude and smug faces.
Available exclusively on Switch, this title brings the peace of golfing and excitement of simple competition to the living room! Winner of Best Original Sports Game in the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers Awards, Golf Story is hailed as one of the best Switch games in 2017, receiving many awards and accolades upon reception. With basically just the NES Golf easter egg as its competition, GS has been the best golf surprise for Switch yet!
