2017 is just barely getting started, but it's already shaping up to be an incredible year for big, open-world action games. As if you weren't already overwhelmed by the prospect of playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn, there's another game that looks like a total standout: Nier: Automata, a Japanese action/role-playing game that puts you in control of a badass robot woman wielding a giant sword.
