That is one terrible poll there. Where is Far Cry 5, Dragonball Fighterz and A Way Out?

You can replace those random games no one even knows about with these.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Celeste for me.



Gow of war however agreed with some other posters here and this poll needs to be reworked.



 

I'm a no good useless jobless talentless sub human so I havent been able to get many new games this year along with having to waste the money I dont have to get a new controller and fix my laptop cause they decided to crap out. The only new game I got this year was detroit become human, and I have dragon quest 11 preordered. So I guess the only game I can say at the moment is Detroit.



God of war so far, apart from it being a masterpiece I've not found anything released this year to really push it. I have high hopes for Octopath though.

So far it's Frostpunk. Nothing else has come close. I'll be looking forward to JC4 though.

I think you had to know the result most people would go for before you did the thread. GOW of course. Its the most acclaimed game and most popular so far.

Oh of course. Half-way through the year is still a good time to run something like this. And the race for second place is interesting.

Ok 😊. I wanted to know the reason as it was pretty obvious which was going to win. I have to say i only know a very few of the games you have on the poll which is kind of sad. 



nothing on the list :(

Personally for me I've had more enjoyment and engagement with smaller games like Old Mans Journey, Enigmatis series, Blossom Tales and games of that nature so far this year.

I have over 100 hours in Celeste. Only five Golden Strawberries to go. So that's definitely my most loved. When I get by PS4 back from my old man, I'll give God of War a go, but that'll be awhile, lol

I remember looking at Old Man's Journey a bit, but haven't played it yet. It looks like it has potential!

I have played Blossom Tales though. Thought it was a fun tribute to the classic Legend of Zelda games. I did find it just a bit heavy-handed in its copying thereof though, honestly. When I compare Blossom Tales to Ittle Dew 2 (a Zelda clone that I've fallen in love with since its 2016 release), I can't help but feel like the former could use more personality (and fewer bows; nobody over the age of 9 that I'm aware of wears a bow) with which to distinguish itself. But it's a well-crafted homage to a really fun type of adventure game that I miss.
