Recommended Posts

Yo.

 

I'm compiling GOTY awards from media outlets (getting plenty of help from this blog, definitely visit to give them some hits), and I'm going to do a big D1P GOTY thing for 2018. The games HAD to have been released in 2018.

 

Voting will end January 31st, 11:59PM ET.

 

This will give people the time to finish playing games that came out this fall, catch up on what they missed earlier this year, and just let time pass to get over the 'new' smell of the fall games. It's not perfect since none of us played everything, but it can't ever be perfect, so whatever. :p  

 

Rank your games like this:

 

1. Game A : 4 points
2. Game B : 3 points
3. Game C : 3 points
4. Game D : 2 points
5. Game E : 2 points
6. Game F : 2 points
7. Game G : 1 point
8. Game H : 1 point
9. Game I : 1 point
10. Game J : 1 point

 

You can change the order as many times as you want until the deadline. I'll tally up all the points and make a 2018 GOTY thread in February. :)

1. Dragon Quest 11

2. Call of Duty BO 4 (shocked me to be this high but I think it is)

3. Red Dead Redemption 2

4. Smash Bros Ultimate (gimmie a few weeks this could end up #1)

5. Monster Hunter World

6. Hitman 2

7. God of War

8. Dead Cells

9. Into the Breach

10. Forza Horizon 4

 

Games that I have played that won't make the cut: Celeste, Octopath Traveler (at this point I think that game is kinda bad, actually), DS remastered (love it but it's just the same game)

Games I haven't played that would probably bump something: Spiderman, Obra Din (spelling is off but it sounds like my jam), Mega Man 11

 

My list may change as I think about this more.

Are you accepting tie ranks?

 

Ehhhh, gonna just say go with your gut as to which edges out.

Do games that released this year on switch but came out another year on another platform count? 

 

You know, I'd initially say no, but I wonder if there are games I consider to be my favorite that came out later on the PS4. Lemme think about this and get back to you.

Based on the rules, I believe this counts as 20 points for Forza Horizon 4.

 

Game A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H/I/J would be different games since they're different letters, smartass. :p

@ Octopath: Really?

 

That's one I'd be interested in getting whenever I get a Switch. My first games would be Zelda/Mario (or possibly the core Pokemon RPG if it knocks it out of the park).

So you are going to decide this based on if you want to add a game to your list or not? :P

 

For me it will change my list because of Hollow Knight and Ys8 on switch. Also since they redid the translation this year for Ys8 this year seems to be a proper year to include it. Hollow Knight is also now officially “complete” this year.

 

I can see it being too late to add Okami HD Switch, however.

1. God of War

2. Red Dead Redemption 2

3. Spider-man

4. Celeste

5. Astroboy

6. Super Smash Bros Ultimate 

7. Ys 8 (switch)

8. Hollow Knight (switch)

9. Forza Horizon 4

10. West of Loathing

 

Will have to edit order (especially if ys8 and hollow knight don’t count) and I’m sure something gets bumped once I get to AC Odyssey. Also enjoying Just cause 4 a lot and who knows maybe it could sneak in. Same with Tomb Raider and Pokemon let’s go. Smash I’m pretty sure will go up the list.

 

Thats about my list in order so far though. Thinking about it now it’s actually been a pretty great year for games.
