Your Game of the Year: 2017 Edition
Hey everyone! Its end of the year again, and with it comes our fun little GOTY topic. While the staff gets ready to formulate their awards, this is the place where you, the forum goer, can let us know which games you thought were the most outstanding (and no so great!) this year. Honor your favorite title with your own personal GOTY Award, tell us why, and even shame your not-so-favorites.
2017 has been a monster year in gaming. We've seen Nintendo Heavy Hitters Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, and Splatoon 2. An excellent array of RPGs to choose from ranging Persona 5, Nier: Automata, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Horizon: Zero Dawn, Resident Evil 7, and Assassin's Creed Origins offered up some AAA success stories. With so much to choose from in such a stellar year, how can anyone decide?! So, what stood out to you over this past year? As always, this is is all in good fun and a very unofficial thread to talk about your opinions on 2016's releases in gaming. Without further ado, here are some category suggestions we have used before for your copying and pasting pleasure, but feel free to add your own:
GOTY: Pretty self explanatory. Any game in any genre that came out this year is eligible, and if something came out late December last year that can count just avoid any questionable situations.
GOTY Runner-Up: The second/third best game you played this year. This is for everyone who loved too many games to list only one.
Anti GOTY: The worst game you played this year. Doesn't necessarily have to be a bad game either.
Anti GOTY Runner-Up: The second/third worst games this year. For those of us who want to dishonor even more games for being crappy!
Anything Else: Want to add your own category? Go right ahead! Some examples used by others range from "GOTY that didn't come out this year" to "Most Surprising/Disappointing". These can make for a more interesting read.
