Wow! Great to see Phantom Dust getting all the love. I thought it was only old geezers like me that remembered this old original XBox gem.

Nice to see Mass Effect get a W. Haters gonna hate, but I enjoyed my time with it quite a bit

I voted for "Big Knockers" from South Park: The Fractured But Whole as best achievement name. And Tales From The Borderlands as best GWG game.
And there was a huge whale and it was all like MWAAAAA which made it super scary!

Well I would have definitely picked Battle Chasers for the RPG game. Not as widely known, so I guess people voted mass effect on familiarity. Very surprised it was picked over larger titles like final fantasy. I haven't played the new one yet but have heard its great and I did try out mass effect and it was just ok at best.

This is a prime example why democracy's fail... fortunately the US is not a democracy, although painfully a lot of people think it is.
Just switch it to taking the ratings from games played this year, and just have popularity contests for things like 'best achievement name', etc, anything that can't be determined from a games ratings!
On reflection, and with no intention of bashing the whole GOTY thing on TA, but I don't think i've ever given the slightest toss whether a game won or not. I didn't play Skyrim 'cos it was GOTY or any other, and I've never been vaguely dissuaded by a game not winning it.

It's like the Oscars, Academy Awards etc for movies, I've never once given a shit who or what won or didn't win, it means absolutely nothing- some of the greatest movies of all time have won no awards and some of the worst crap I've seen have won many.

Again, not bashing or complaining, just putting my opinion out there smile I didn't vote 'cos i haven't played any of them.

Agree with this. I'm an active user on this site and had no clue I could have voted.
There's a pm in your inbox (which you've read) all about it - what wasn't clear exactly?
I am sorry, but there is nothing in my inbox. I triple checked. Fake news. I blame the Russian's on the voting.

When choosing a game or indeed a movie, book, album whatever to play, watch, read or listen to, the last thing I give a shit about is how many awards or good reviews it has.

But that's just me I guess, silly Deevius roll

I only voted in three categories as I only play a few "new" 2017 games this year. This year for Xbox games was kind of meh at best.

cuphead any one who says that was good or should be on list is a xbox fanboy the game on any other system would be a indie joke of a game but xbox has no games left so of course all fanboys are going to be voting cuphead one of the under 3 exclusives we got this year .

sad Nintendo has more exclusives then xbox one and its been out less then a year they have had 1 per month and nearly all are miles ahead of any games xbox makes now days . cuphead lolol wow funny game is so good but last study showed 95% of gamers who bought it stopped playing by the end of 2 level and thats good when you cant even get 5% of gamer to play more then 10% of the game . thank god i own a ps4 and a switch and pc because xbox is utterly dead this gen its so bad the store has to re package games as new to keep the store looking alive . the hype for the X lol what a joke only console that did not sell out at launch for the past 3 gens even pro sold out for first rap weekend

Yeah, this was hyped as hell but went silent very quick. I'd probably stop trying level 1, that's why I won't buy.

Sad but true. I bought an One S during the cut for GS promotion, just out of tradition and there's nothing like XBOX gamepads. But when TLoU 2 comes out I'll get a PS4 PRo.

I did cast my votes but it was hard for me because I play games only "well hung". When they're patched and you get the whole stuff for less than €20. I've played Resi 7 for about 2 hours and I'm now playing Wolfenstein 2. That's about all from 2017...

Happy XMAS,
Stephan

Cuphead is a good game. It's just hard as hell. People get frustrated.

You know what else had the same issue? Alien Isolation. Absolutely incredible story and experience, but less than half the players even made it through the 4th mission.

The 4th mission. There are 19. It's exclusively a story based game.

Does that make it bad? It has 4.3 stars in TA. No, it's just scary as hell. Bloody great ride, just not a shooter like I suspect a lot of people expected it to be.

Cuphead has 4.7 stars. It deserves it. Just because I like it doesn't automatically make me an Xbox fanboy.

But this isn't an Xbox vs Sony thread.

Don’t know about other people, but I’ve been stuck on the fourth (or fifth, can’t remember) mission of Alien: Isolation not because it’s hard or bad, but because the game crashes so often that I get frustrated. Which is a pity, since I very much like the game.
