Zelda is so far beyond everything else on that list. Didn't remember that 3D World beat The Last of Us. I love this place

Breath of the Wild is by far my favourite game of the last decade. The only two games that are somewhat close, both got released in 2013, and neither of them got the GOTY for some reason.

Between my top three picks of Skyrim, Uncharted 4 and Breath of the Wild I just have to vote for Breath of the Wild. Haven't played a game that was so mind-blowing in years. And I'll play it soon again in hard mode with added DLC!

Uncharted 2, my second favorite video game of all time. I am shocked that my favorite game is not on the list.

It's too bad TLOU didn't win its year. It's the only one I would voted for in that list. I played and beat Uncharted 2 but I can't in good conscience vote for it. While I enjoyed it, it wasn't memorable, groundbreaking or a pinnacle of quality in any way, for me.

I already clicked on Skyrim, then I saw Breath of the Wild. Oh right, that was a game what happened. Sorry Skyrim.

I'm a little shocked at 2015's result. I thought Witcher 3, Bloodborne, MGSV, and even Fallout 4 were more likely winners of that year.

Especially the first two, I see so much love Witcher and Bloodborne, yet not seen much for rocket league. Am I missing something here?

Lol yea, makes you wonder who is voting for these lists. Bloodborne is the best game I have played in the last 2 decades. I am not saying my taste is the norm but quality is quality, a dumbed down soccer game using go-karts is the last thing that comes to mind when when thinking of quality.

Not saying it is better or worse than these specific games (I personally love Bloodborne the most out of those) but stereotyping Rocket League as a dumbed down gimmick soccer game.. Well it doesn't help making your opinion be taken seriously.

It's a fantastic game with an incredible depth of gameplay mechanics/skills that is both immediately accessible/fun but also has one of the highest skill ceiling in any esport game. Also great content with tons of free updates and game modes.

This one I'll refuse
From that list, probably BotW, if it's as good as I think it is.

How did LBP win 2008? lol

I voted for BotW for 2017.

How did Super Mario 3D World win 2013? lol


I like SM3DW to be honest, way better than LBP1 but if I was active back in 2008, I would have voted for my GOTY of that year - Bioshock Infinite. (Actually scratch that, I played Infinite back in 2013 lmao).

2008 had a lot of great games too though, like Mass Effect 1, Assassin's Creed 1 (at the time), GTAIV (at the time) and even Persona 4 came out that year.
