RPGs 2017: Cyberpunk to Steampunk to Westerns

As we hit the end of 2017, I'm preparing to catalog and write up the year’s releases in the genres I’ve covered in my RPG History lists. I’ve assembled basic lists. They don't include everything—with a few exceptions items have a physical release or if electronic only have 72 pages or more. Kickstarted projects need to have delivered a final pdf in to be counted.

This is a skeleton list. For supplements I've put the system name in parenthesis; otherwise it's a core or generic book. I’ll do full posts throughout the year. More than anything I want to get a sense of how many games and supplements we saw in each category. Across the board we had many more than I thought. This post just covers everything but Horror RPGs. I’ve posted those here.
