    Best Shooter should be flipped, heck GoW 4 shouldn't even be on this.

    This kind of post is entirely uncalled for mate.

    I'm double posting bc I'm too lazy to edit my previous post to point out this nonsense. You are on the WRONG site if you want to proverbially shit on boosters with mysoginist insults.

    Not that lazy edit: and you might want to take a break from the internet and grow up a tad if you feel the need to go to that extreme about a game.
    There's no point in arguing with this idiot. He pulled the same stunt when Gears Ultimate came out and bitched about people boosting Seriously. He's a huge hypocrite that has boosted more games than he likes to admit (seriously, we blasted him with it back then, but he still denied it).

    Also, I played Overwatch, and it didn't do it for me. I like Team Fortress 2 more. It was easily the most overrated game this year. It didn't even feel like a complete game to me.

    serious dark souls 3 best RPG FF15 sold more copies and is better then souls in fact any RPG is better then crappy souls games
    Ff15 is stupid af!!! Souls games have sooo much depth!
    They're very different kinds of games. FF is more light-hearted and simple to play, DS is depressing and has much greater challenge.

    What Thevius said.

    Look at the guy's feedback - He's been in sessions for Gears of War 4, Minecraft, Equalicious, The Elder Scrolls Online (because MMOs are totally dead and require boosting, right?), Overwatch, Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrive, Titanfall, Warface, Tomb Raider, Injustice, Assassin's Creed IV : Black Flag, and a shit ton of other games I can't be bothered to list.

    The aforementioned thread, for interested parties...

    Seriously... Boosting

    Also, this one...

    Level 100 re-up reward!

    The hypocrisy is hysterical with this guy.
    Here lies a trite quote from somebody in history you might recognize. It's delightfully witty, yet concurrently incisive, and not at all pretentious.

    As a player and lover of Gears since the very first one, Gears 4 has no place on this list. It is a pale imitation of the first three.

    While calling it a simulator is a tad tenuous, I am glad that Overcooked picked up an award, by far the most enjoyable couch co-op game I have played for a number of years.

    I'm sad not to see Quantum Break anywhere. It's such a fantastic game and I would go so far as to say it's the best game to come out new on the Xbone (as in not counting remasters/remakes).

    Some of my personal favorites from the year are represented though so I'm happy with that. Dark Souls III, FF XV, and The Witness were all in my top 5.

    And to echo everyone else how has said this, how did LoA and Seriously get runner ups? Calling Seriously original is the same as calling Madden original. And the only way LoA should ever get an award is if there was a category for worst developers.

    Overcooked a Simulation Game? laugh

    Disgraceful that Doom and Titanfall 2 didn't get any of the Best games.

    To be clear, I am not a huge Souls fan, but at least it is an RPG; FF is much closer to an "action" game than an RPG; and, even though DS has a story mainly only in a fanboy's head, I still prefer that to the non-sense of FF...I am just about done with that game and it went from a reasonable semi-open world game to a horrible linear QTE-fest in the 2nd half...with a ridiculously obtuse "story".....overall maybe a 5.5 or 6/ 10.

    While I am not a fan of his post, I also am not a fan of people using words they do not understand, and you clearly do not know what a "mysoginist" (sic) is as his post was not an example.

    I think to some, any use of language referring to that particular region, whether contextually relevant or not, shows a certain level of misogyny.

    That aside, the general message that we should all play nice is definitely one we should stick to. Everyone is different, has differing opinions and values, and each should be respected provided of course they don't adversely impact on other people.

    I have heard only good things about FH3 from a number of people, and despite the general opinion that a racing game shouldn't win the GOTY for some reason, it is the game I expected to take the title. My nephew has been given it for Christmas, so maybe one day I will get a shot at trying it, maybe even buying it if the DLC doesn't bump it out of my price range.

    One more quick question, will there be an overall list published with numbers? Just so we can see the differences between ranks and how low down our personal favourites finished? (I don't think this has already been asked, but if it has I apologise).

    Having played DOOM and most of the other games on here, it didn't even make my top 5.

    The word he chose to use falls into the misogynist category when used as a derogatory means to fling insults. I know perfectly well what I was referring to, and his post fit the bill in my book.

    If someone calls a white guy the N word, it's still a racist use of the word when used in a derogatory manner, despite the fact that the target of the insult is white.

    Same concept here. This isn't exactly a rated-G site so the occasional 4 letter word in a post is one thing, but taking it to that level shouldnt EVER be tolerated.

    Also, I edited out his language because it crosses a line. If you genuinely think the word 'shit' crosses a line when it isn't a verbal attack but rather an appropriate reference to his behavior, then I guess more power to you. If you simply edited it out to be clever, it didn't have that effect.
