The Game Awards is going to release the nominees for its award ceremony on November 13th, including games released between November 24th 2017 and November 17th 2018.

in that case, swap out SSB for Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Yeah, people seem to have mentioned the main ones. Only other one I hope get some recognition is Ni No Kuni 2.

RDR II, God of War, Monster Hunter World. I wish Octopath Traveler, but it will not happen. Smash comes to late to the party. RDR II will win, it is so far ahead of the other games.

You must have not played GOW or probably don't own a PS4 or both. cause thats the only way someone can make such a statement.

Unless being a fully open world game (as opposed to the more linear open world of GOW) is a gauranteed shoe in for GOTY, then yes there is no chace for GOW.

But if both games are taken on their own merit the its gonna be a really tough decision for anyone to make having to pick between those two games. Even spiderman has some merit too.



Red Dead Redepmtion II
Spider-Man
God of War



Just take the list of highest scoring games on Mentacritic, and remove all non-AAA games.

Red Dead Redemption 2
God of War
Celeste
Forza Horizon 4
Dead Cells
Into The Breach

Monster Hunter World

Also Spiderman perhaps, because it wasn't that far off and it's selling very well.

I believe there are usually 5 games nominated for GOTY. These are my predictions:

-Red Dead Redemption 2 (97 meta)
-God of War (94 meta)
-Forza Horizon 4 (92 meta)
-Monster Hunter World (90 meta)
-Spider-Man (87 meta)

Indies/single A's and AA's have actually been nominated in the past. Some examples:

-The Walking Dead and Journey both got nominated in 2012, and The Walking Dead won GOTY that year (The Walking Dead is a single-A or AA depending on your definition, while Journey was an indie)

-Hearthstone got nominated in 2014 (Hearthstone is a AA at best, single A by my definition)

-Inside got nominated in 2016 (Inside is an indie)

-PUBG got nominated in 2017 (PUBG is a AA)



God of War
Red Dead Redemption 2
Spider-Man
Monster Hunter World

Only games I can think of, I'd also mention Smash Ultimate if that came out before the deadline.

I played the first God of War, didn't like it and never touched the series again. it's just not my cup of tea, similar as I didn't touch Super Mario Odyssey, as I don't care for Mario.

But let's be serious here, God of War has a Meta of 94, Spider 87. RDR II has 97. And moreover, if a jury decides on a GOTY, then half of them will have never played an exclusive, but all of them a big multiplat. That doesn't mean an extraordinary exclusive can get the title, but GoW is rated behind RDR II, so it is quite unlikely it gets picked.



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Oh this thread is about that single event that always keep changing its name?
RDR2 will win hands down there, GoW has no chance.
RDR2 would beat any other game this gen there, like GTAV beat TLoU there but lost mostly elsewhere.
