Well deserved win for Forza Horizon 3 in my humble opinion.

Over 300 hours and full completion in gears 4 and in my opinion it doesn't deserve second place for goty. I would have gone with forza for goty then the batman telltale series because it was fantastic.

After what the coalition did to destroy my trust in them as a consumer and all the greed with the packs, gameplay issues they refuse to acknowledge or fix etc. Gears 4 coming second is ridiculous. Coming from a former 10 year loyal fan of the franchise.

Seriously 4.0 as most original achievement??? That aside there are some great games on there, I'm pleased to see that Overwatch didn't win a single award as to me it is seriously overrated.

Overcooked is as much of a restaurant simulator as Carmageddon is a DMV driver's test simulation.

The way this site does the voting will always give the best selling games a huge advantage over other games, regardless of quality.

Horizon 3 is a blast and keeps me and my son entertained whenever we go back to it, now some 30 hours in and just a third of the way through the in-game 100%. Awesome winner. Also great to see my top three win awards to, in Rocket League, The Turing Test, and Unravel.

Several, sadly. F2P means lots of voters, though. Most of the games below would have been better choice than either Lies of Astaroth or Prominence Poker.

Armello (listed as Strategy here, but it's a C&B game) would have been my choice, I think, if the genres allowed.

Mahjong
Pure Chess
Rev Ersi Quest
Risk: Urban Assault

and the likely people's choice:

Uno
Time not important; only life important.

While that's often true, this year the winner was only the 6th highest "seller":

Seriously 4.0 gets runner up status for most original achievement? Something ain't right here... facepalm

Forza 3 Horizon is well deserving of the GOTY title.
Ha ha, charade you are!

Conspiracy! I demand a recount!

Not a single mention of Dead Rising 4 :(

Alright I gots to know. What is so much better to FH3 than FH2? They are so similar IMO. I'm curious cause I might end up buying and playing FH3 then when I find out why it was so deserving this GOTY

I see the issue here. All of Overwatch's achievements were so fun that the votes for them got split 50 ways, instead of to the maybe one fun achievement in any given game, so that's why it doesn't appear in the achievement tables. Right? cry

last year's fallout 4 won just based on name alone. i played it 10 months after it came out and it still had ground breaking bug's in the game. best seller doesn't always mean it's a good game.

Alot of my votes were represented which is awesome. Good list TA. Forza was absolutely amazing and is easily one of my top games ever.
