∑ Yakuza 0
∑ Super Mario: Odyssey
∑ RE7
∑ Nioh
∑ Prey
∑ Horizon: Zero Dawn
∑ Zelda: BOTW
∑ Neir: Automata
∑ Persona 5
∑ Player Unknown: Battlegrounds
∑ Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
∑ Sonic Mania
∑ Uncharted: Lost Legacy
∑ Gran Turismo: Sport
∑ Destiny 2
∑ Divinity: Original Sin 2
∑ Cuphead
∑ Evil Within 2

I haven't played everything on that list yet, but I would say, Mario Odyssey, Zelda: BOTW, Horizon: ZD, and Cuphead are strong contenders.

Can't we discuss this when Game of the Year voting comes around?

It has been a fantastic year though (especially compared to last year), yes.

It's easily Odyssey and/or BOTW. Even though i loved every single bit of Nioh, it's nowhere up there with Nintendo Goodness.

wow - i feel shitty. i've only played 2 of those games listed in the op. granted i typically stay 6-18 months behind on releases which would explain why, but still.

anyways neither persona or botw is GOTY material imo.

What debate looks like in 2017

I canít disagree yet, still have yet to finish the game but Iím leaning toward Horizon at this point. The only other game Iíve yet to beat is PREY, but I donít expect Iíll get to it before yearís end.

Horizon because of the excellent combat, ludicrous graphics, great story, great new protagonist, and a huge unexpected surprise from Guerilla.

I think BOTW will be GOTY without a doubt. Mario is my second pick and while the game is great BOTW still has something special.

If either of the two highest rated games doesnít get the nod this year, shame. Odyssey and BotW are some of the best 2017 has seen if not the last few years.

Right now there are three main games in the running for me:

Lone Echo
Persona 5
Mario Odyssey

Zelda was good but didn't blow me away like those others did. I haven't played Horizon or Nier yet.

This zelda is not even the best Zelda game. There are only 3 acceptable candidates for me, Super Mario Odyssey, Horizon, and Yakuza 0.

I've played 7 games from that list. My favorite is Horizon easily. Probably the best combat this entire generation.

Also, RE7 gets shit on a lot. But that game was amazing, best Resident Evil game since 4.

I think Prey still edges out Odyssey for me. Both are master class at level design but Prey did some amazing things with it's story and narrative that kept me engrossed throughout my playthrough.

I'm a fan of Zelda since the 3 on SNES and I really disliked BOTW. :/ I bought the Switch for it.

Only played those exposed. Really, I ought to play more games! Easily, for me, it's Zelda BotW. Mario is good, sometimes great, but early on it began to feel like a chore.

BOTW is the winner here hands down, also PUBG isn't a game yet, it's still early access, get that outta here

I was shocked at how dull I found BotW to be. There were a few head scratcher mechanics that didn't help.

I recently started playing BotW and my god the the open world is sooo damn good. I finished Horizon and got 97% of the trophies and to me that game has the most boring open word game I ever played.

Lots of good games in that list, but my pick is Horizon, easily.

Edit: This should not be 'OT'. The official topic always has an actual poll which only a mod can create, and only happens once the year is up.

That would be the official GOTY thread. This is a debate thread.

You're literally crazy if you're going to defend Zelda. It's not even on my top 10. BoTW is beyond shallow imo.
