Of what I've played and seen this year, Zelda should win but it's nice to see Wolfenstein 2 get some recognition.

Why even bother? Just give it to Zelda now and save some time.

 

Nothing even comes CLOSE to what Zelda was able to achieve this year. The game is one of the best games I've ever played.

I think it's quite a stretch to include Destiny and Horizon over some other games this year. But that is just me. 

Destiny 2 is probably the most "questionable" entry on that list.

I still have to play Zelda and think it's entirely possible that I'd give it the nod from what I've heard, but I'd be shocked if I didn't think DOS2 was at least close.

I disagree. Zelda is cool, but it’s probably second or third on my list.

Idk how people choose one. I love all my top picks for such different reasons.

The Horizon hate is misplaced.  It came second in the Golden Joystick Awards in the GOTY voting...

 

While there are lots of other great games deserving of praise this year (PUBG, Mario and Zelda come to mind), people don't need to put down one of the best games to come out this gen....

I really need to get back to Horizon.  Liked the world and gameplay, but the characters and plot were falling a little flat for me.  Normally that wouldn’t be enough to turn me away, but I had Zelda to play.  

 

I do hope the inevitable Horizon sequel cuts down on the scavaging and map clutter though.  For me it really detracted from the scope of the world.  I spent way too much time looking a few meters ahead for the next plant to gather instead of plotting my next move in the distance.  

 

Still a solid game IMO, have no qualms with it being a GOTY contender.

Shadow of War and Ass. Creed Origins BOTH should be on their before Destiny 2 in my opinion.

 

Don't know about Shadow of War, but definitely agree about AC: Origins.

 

PUBG?  I don't play it but it doesn't seem like anything to me.  Destiny 2, while hopefully on the road to improving, is not even fucking close to anything resembling a game of the year.  Such an unnecessary step back from where they left off in year 3 of Destiny 1.

 

Horizon was pretty damn good and definitely deserves to be up there.  Will it win?  Probably not, but it deserves to be there.

Speak for yourself. Destiny shouldn't be there. Horizon certainly should!

The list is missing Assassin's Creed Orgins which is superior to Horizon Zero Dawn.

Origins should be on the list.  Best AC game in the series.  

 

It is odd for me to see the Horizon hate.  I haven't played it (Don't have a PS), but I remember at one time people here were singing its praises pretty loud.  There were several discussions about which was better between it and Zelda.  It's impact seems to have not aged well.

Nope. A.C. Orgins is so much more fun than Horizon was for me. It's better structured as well. One of the better games I've played in quite some time. 

 

The visuals are incredible on my LG OLED C7 65". Xbox X is making orgasm everytime I boot it up.

Not really. The same people praising it then are praising it now. It was getting hate at that point because it came out near Zelda, and it still gets compared to it. The same people putting it above Zelda are doing it now. And the same people disliking it or being lukewarm are doing so now. There's been no shift.

 

It'll continue to at a minimum get nominated for well-deserved GOTY awards.
