But there are more Nintendo users on this site than any other fanbase. I remember somebody did a poll a couple years ago and the ranking was Nintendo > Playstation > Xbox > PC. I think Nintendo got like 40% of the vote. Hard for any game to top Zelda in this competition when it has the largest fanbase on the site voting for it.
You are absolutely right about too few of the Xbox and PC fans we do have on the site taking part in these monthly polls. I've been trying to get more Xbox fans to take part by posting reminders in Xbox Empire, but it has only helped a little bit.
You only need to do a bit of effort and look at the results of past months to realize that the userbase isn't relevant, but the number of people that vote do. Final Fantasy VII Remake won in April, March, February, not January when Zelda won, but it won again in December and November, and I haven't looked before.
As I said, it's how many people vote and also the game that matters.
I think we should amend the rules to games coming out in the next 6 months - year. Force people to consider the near future and not games that are 2+ years away.
In that case, 7 of the first 10 games shouldn't be on the list because only Paper Mario, Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077 have release dates.
Please excuse my bad English.
