Tells me two things.

One, reminds me why i don’t take this blog seriously with reader polls being counted. Two, damn I really need to just buy Control and play it.

I'd take reader poll results any day over some of these so called video game "journalist" websites.

Take IGN for example - they got busted for completely plagiarizing other website reviews.   Don't see how anyone could ever take them serious as a respectable review site.

DS is the easy pick, control and FE followed



I think Sekiro or Resident Evil 2 will get the most nods on the industry and community list on the GotY site.

Personally the best game I played that was released this year was Resident Evil 2, but I'm not really convinced it deserves to win overall game of the year. Quite a weak year really.

No Dragon Quest XI? Is that because it released in Japan last year already? Otherwise I consider this a giant oversight.

On the other hand, I'm happy Untitled Goose game got a vote, didn't expect that.

It released in Japan in 2017, Western release on PS4/PC was 2018.

It could earn Switch GOTY this year, but I think it'd be a bit much to be a valid contender for overall goty two years running. xD



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I don't think they consider late ports for GOTY.



I'm happy with Death Standing or Control taking the most awards. Excellent picks overall.

Let us see what TGA brings tomorrow as well.



 

 

 

 

 

My favorite game this year have been RE2. But considering it is a remake I would choose GOTY on something new and that would be Death Stranding, I liked it and yes it was fun.

It takes me 3 - 4 months to playthrough a game until either completion or satisfaction, so I think there's room for 2, maybe even 3 titles as GOTY.

But, that's just me. ❤️😉❤️

[edit: I intentionally slow-play a game I love/really like to stretch out the experience for as long as possible.  Since it's so great, why not make it last as long as possible?]
