In this site, one of the few ones.

We had plenty of users saying things like: 

I haven’t played the game but I can swear that is bad. 

Well I can't comment on the gameplay, since I didn't play it myself, but I watched all of it and I hated the story.

I agree with Icaro here. I thought TLOU2 deserved the win. The game was grim, uncomfortable (perhaps deliberately so) and overhanded with its themes, but for all that, it did leave a major impression on me and make me think about it for a considerable amount of time. And that was more than any other game managed that year.

OT: I agree that this year's contenders dont seem to be as strong as we obvously haven't had any huge exclusives drop in the period. However, i do expect next year to be very hotly contested (with Starfield and a number of PS exclusives in the mix) and it will be fascinating to see who wins.

I voted Metroid Dread for GOTY, because, well, it just is :P

This game has made me fall in love with the franchise. I will be getting any Metroid game they release from here on out. It was so good. To me, controlling Samus felt amazing. Like the best controls for a 2D game I've played; similar to how Super Mario Odyssey feels the greatest to control for a 3D platform.

I don't think it will win, but I am happy it was nominated. I would love to be proven wrong. Metroid Dread deserves it.

I'm still stuck on the final boss, grrrr.

I'm absolutely blown away by how good the game feels though.



Just like last year, i am not interested. Until they fix thier botched system and actually make the correct games eligible for GOTY instead of sub genreing them. They will get my interests.

Please define 'correct', because these games are nominated by 103 different media outlets.

As usual, they snub a Yakuza game. Lost Judgment. Cruis'n Blast snubbed. The World Ends With you Neo snubbed. Monster Hunter Stories 2 snubbed. What idiots decide these things? Why is this award so shit every year?

Place the best of the best eligible for overall GOTY. Not sub genreing them off because they dont fit a certent narrative.

Still cryptic, what are you talking about ?

He's talking about Forza not getting GOTY nomination and only racing/sports nomination.

But his point doesn't make sense, it wasn't sub-genred out. Being nominated for best racing/sports game doesn't prevent you from being nominated for best game if the year. Just as the other GOTY nominated games are nominated for other awards as well.

It's simple, not enough of the 100+ critics nominated Forza Horizon for overall GOTY. That's it.

Forza was eligible, it wasn't nominated by enough critics.

Sounds pretty biased to me. 

If Forza is in one genre like Racing, then what about Strategy games, and why is it always action or 3rd party based games that always get put up for GOTY?.
