I didn't vote this year. I'm sure that would have changed everything. laugh

I guess the results explain why I haven't played any game released in 2017...

2017 was a great year of games. But some of these winners are not what I will think of down the road when remembering this year. While it’s a popularity contest - I always hope people will expand their gaming horizons...

Path of Exile should've won the Best RPG award.

I see no mention of Prey anywhere. Vote was apparently rigged!

We all know that the "average value of each vote" in the stats round up is the most interesting Top 10, much more so than this popularity contest.

This is how GOTY should be done.....kudos.

While I don't agree with every pick, I am humble enough to acknowledge my opinion counts only as much as anyone else's.

That said, Slime Rancher as a sim....say what now?

LOL Assassin's Creed Origins GOTY? in WHAT World?
and Destiny 2 Best Shooter?? Get outta here with that garbage.

Best shooter in 2017 should've been Ghost Recon Wildlands for sure. Slim Pickings here.
Hell Playerunknown's Battlegrounds or Fortnite should've been on this list it was released in 2017.

What a mess this list is.

I'm happy for AC:O for winning though, even thoguh I haven't palyed it yet. I know I will eventually. And big ups to Cuphead for 2nd place. That's a really BIG deal (imo), again, haven't played it, but I plan to buy it soon.

Okay, so this game has been out less than 2 months, and is the TA playlist.. no wonder, it is the game that is on most people's minds at the time, but it doesn't mean it is the best.

What an awful list of award winners.

Yooka Laylee over Sonic Mania?
Mass Effect: Andromeda?
Destiny 2 over Wolfenstein?

Pathetic.

I wonder how much of this is driven by people choosing to only vote for games they played this year? I limited myself and I think this is the first year I ever voted because I play so few games in the year that they are released. I think I played 3 games released this year and that's with the 12 Days of Christmas event that got me to start several games that would've waited until at least next year.

I am surprised that Andromeda is the best RPG of the year, not because it is terrible (I'm playing it and it isn't) but the South Park fan base is so vocal I figured that game would win for sure. It's too bad that EA has shelved Mass Effect because I think Andromeda 2 could've been a really good game.
