Metacritic is not what wins GOTY awards. If you didnt notice Bayonetta 2 sits on a 91 which has been the highest rated game on release and it did not win GOTY. Ori sits on a 88 meta which i would consider a contenter with GOTY.
You can expect Halo, Forza, Gears and Tomb Raider to do rather good on the review boards and will probably be the best games in there selective genres.
Bayonetta 2 got 17 GOTY awards from Critic and 5 from readers.
But yeap... Meta didn't make a game GOTY.
