Glad to see that Blood and Wine won best dlc. A little surprised that Forza won, I was expecting to see GOW 4 or Overwatch.

I only played 5 games this year, and Gears4 and FH3 were two of them! That makes Hitman my runner up, and Lego Force Awakens and AC Chronicles my honourable mentions. XCOM 2 is on my wish list :)

The way this site does the voting will always give the best selling games a huge advantage over other games, regardless of quality.
While that's often true, this year the winner was only the 6th highest "seller":

Most Played Games On TrueAchievements 2016 - Part Two
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.
I did vote for Fallout and I regret it, it was not an amazing game, good, but not GOTY.
I am biased in my opinion as we all are, but Gears 4 didn't deserve runner up from what I have played and know of it.

HOWEVER, this is one of many sites that do GOTY awards and even if your top game of the year didn't win any award, its still your top game of the year, and nothing will change that.

So, LoA runner up?

How can a game with so many things wrong even get a nod?


Cheevos that dont open, elements of game that isnt available w/o wallet buying...brutal communication from devs.
Game changes on the fly to suit their needs.

INB4 "Russians hacked the ballot." Many of these games aren't very good.

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.
Totally second this. Overwatch was the emperors new clothes in my eyes.

Good list overall .. Hard to comment as I hardly buy games in the year they are released !
Too many Irons in the fire !

Blind love for Gears 4? Isn't Seriously 4.0 the most unoriginal achievement there is? I guess I should be more excited to actually start the game but I'm kind of disappointed overwatch didn't show up anywhere.

I also haven't heard a single positive thing about LoA :p

Soda Drinker Pro did not GOTY. This is clearly rigged.

Glad XCOM 2 got some love.
I'll never understand why people enjoy these generic AAA titles so much though. Gears and Forza really? roll
I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

Well deserved for FH3, although it has been a pretty poor year for games in general, especially in the originality department.

Sad to see Watch Dogs 2 didn't make any of the achievement polls. Some great names and original unlock requirements.

I'd have to agree that FH3 is my game of the year, but I must admit I just haven't gotten around to as many new games this year because of my huge backlog - especially since so many core titles from the 360 have gone backwards compatible. I wonder how different my list would be if I'd gotten around to more of the big hitters.

To those who don't understand how FH3 has done so well, don't forget that this particular iteration has not only satisfied people who wanted more FH2, it's also brought in a huge number of gamers who don't usually go for racing games thanks to a significant effort with the marketing campaign -- and because it looks so damn fine.

I shall echo the 'wtf Seriously runner-up for most original' sentiment. It's just a meta-achievement. It's a step above 'unlock all other achievements', but that's it.

Definitely willing to give GoW both the 'name' ones though. Those are pretty funny.
