May as well start putting here the games I'm going to look at for my top 10 while I'm thinking about it -

Total Warhammer 2
Yakuza 0
Horizon Zero Dawn
AC: Origins
Madden NFL 18
Mario Odyssey
Persona 5
Sonic Mania
Fire Pro Wrestling World
Rez Infinite
Wolfenstein 2
Destiny 2

Mass Effect won't make the top 10. Zelda certainly won't unless it's a discussion about the most overrated game ever.

I picked up Road Redemption in the Steam Sale and first impressions are REALLY good as a Road Rash die hard! Same with The Sexy Brutale, that looks fucking brilliant...

I have to agree with the likes of IGN, Gamespot, Polygon, Destructoid, etc...who have all crowned The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as THE GAME OF THE YEAR!!! :up:

It is of course also reflected on Metacritic that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is indeed the THE GAME OF THE YEAR!!! :up:

My Top 5 Ranking... :)

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Splatoon 2
4. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Have to have a longer think later but number 1 is definitely Persona 5.

Mine goes something like this...

10 points Yakuza 0
9 points Horizon ZD
8 points Nex Machina
7 points GT Sport
6 points Knack 2

That's all I've played that was released this year unless you count Hitman Complete Collection that got a retail release after episodic release. I could also put in Wipeout Collection but tbh, mine is still in the shrink wrap.

Yet another year of either playing bugger all or playing stuff in my backlog. I bought a Switch and basically played that and old open world stuff (GTA5 and Skyrim) when I wasn't dealing with kids.

10. Zelda BOTW (Switch)
9. Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)
8. Hollow Knight (PC)

Still don't own a PS4 or XBONE. Will probably get a PS4 for RDR2.

8. Resident Evil 7
7. Uncharted: Lost Legacy
6. What remains of Edith Finch
5. Lone Echo
4. Forza 7
3. Everybody’s Golf
2. F1 2017
1. Nier Automata

I only started Nier on Sunday so only 5 hours or so in so that may go higher on my list, but deserves a nod at least.

Been playing a lot of 2016 releases (Hitman, Firewatch, Motorsport Manager). Could put down 2 EU4 expansions as well I guess

Total Warhammer 2 (PC)
AFL Evolution (Xbox One)
Destiny 2 (PC)


Well this is embarassing. Despite picking up the above this year I've only finished (various definitions of that word when it comes to games!) a handful. They are:

10. Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC)

Suffered from some poor animations at launch (largely fixed) and a troubled development, Andromeda then ran head-long into the Raging Nutjob Vortex currently sweeping the Internet. Lefties picked up their protest signs over a clumsily-written transgender character and aspects of its storyline (WTF), while righties melted like snowflakes over some less-than-attractive female characters proving Bioware is run by a cabal of white-hating feminists. Or something. The same complaints they have with Star Wars really.

But it's a pretty good game and I'm annoyed we won't see the story wrap up in DLC. But there are two prequel novels already out, and I believe one on the way that will actually wrap up the storyline.

A sad end to my favourite series of the 360-era. Fuck you Internet, fuck you EA, fuck you all I'm naming it my GOTY. Bring on Dragon Age 4!

9. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (PC)

I don't really play online any more so the whole loot box thing doesn't affect me as much as others (I'm personally opposed to anything resembling pay-to-win. Cosmetic rewards are fine) but I have played through the single player campaign and enjoyed it a lot. It's a beautiful game, it looks and feels and sounds like Star Wars. Plenty of cameos from classic characters, I don't care if it's fan service or a sneak peak at their abilities for multiplayer, I got to be Luke Skywalker and Han Solo and Lando Calrissian and it was awesome. The space combat missions were a bit dull though, I would kill for a proper Star Wars space sim.

8. AFL Evolution (Xbox One)

After several patches this is far and away the best AFL game ever. Still a lot of room for improvement but I'm not sure how much of that is related to budget or the fundamental difficulties in translating AFL to a videogame.

Then the ones I'm playing through at the moment:

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (PC)

I have a feeling this will be my actual GOTY but I only just got it for Christmas so I'm not far enough into it to make that call.

CoD WW2 (PC)

I haven't enjoyed CoD this much for years so again this would feature quite highly but like Wolfenstein I only just got it for Christmas.

The ones I've played a handful of times but haven't been able to get into for various reasons:

Dawn of War III (PC)

I've been looking forward to this one for YEARS but it just hasn't clicked :( I'll finish it eventually but I ploughed through the first two (and their expansions) as soon as I got them. Not so with this one :(

Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

My PC and Xbox One are in my study, and I just can't be arsed playing the consoles in the other room half the time :lol: Crappy excuse but oh well. The main reason I picked it up was because I'm hoping the Wii U version will become a bit of a rarity :P

Destiny 2


Was really getting into it (the single player campaign) nek minnit a swarm of baddies that seemed a lot more powerful than me swarmed all around me and killed me as I was trying to get to the next level. Like they wouldn't even let me start the next mission becasue they were all over the checkpoint I had to get to and my guns would barely scratch them and I kept running out of ammo. WTF? I wasn't even in a mission I was just trying to get to the next one. I don't understand. Haven't played since.

And the ones I have yet to play because I'm still playing their predecessors:

Total Warhammer 2 (PC)
Jaspar's Fractured But Whole (Xbox One)


So:

10. Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC)
9. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (PC)
8. AFL Evolution (Xbox One)

Last year was better.

9. Cuphead
8. Forza 7
7. Wonder Boy III - The Dragon's Trap remake
6. KOF XIV Steam Edition
5. PUBG
4. Nex Machina

That's about it from me, the problem with GOTY stuff for me is I'm always playing something from the previous year from my backlog. I have Wolf 2. Battlefront 2, COD WW2. I'll play through those in the next few quieter months.

A switch could be on the cards sometime this year too.
