Obviously God of War. I also adore Astrobot
This year is stacked though and Heavy Rain had a lot of AAA novelty factor when it came out.You won't be. Believe it or not, many voted for HR and even Beyond at the old place back in the day. Since Detroit is arguably their best game yet it will also get votes. I expect it to make the Top 10 or Top 20. Speaking of SweetNicole, Detroit is not on that spreadsheet lol (EDIT: fixed)
It’s #6 on my list. It felt like a huge step forward for that subgenre, and one of the best choice-driven narrative-adventure games I’ve ever played.
Becuase that's exactly how bias works, especially someone torn between two or more things. It has more to do with the people in the middle. Not the people who are steadfast with their descison.
Hollow Knight is under remakes at the bottom of the sheet.
DOS2 and Hollow Knight are listed under remakes on the bottom of the sheet already; yes they are eligible.
In order to help cut down on the eligibility debates that can be a distraction during voting, we're making the spreadsheet of games eligible for GOTY available now. (Note: remakes are listed at the bottom of the spreadsheet.) Our hope is that this will ensure that most of, if not all, eligibility questions are answered prior to the start of voting. If you've got questions about a game's eligibility, please reply in this thread with the game title, and we'll look it over.
Yeah, I could see Top 10 maybe not happening. But if we go Top 20 just looking at the games eligible Detroit has more broad appeal than a lot of those in terms of era audience. Detroit will likely edge out stuff like Tomb Raider and Battlefield I imagine. The top spots will be filled with RDR2, GoW, Spiderman, Smash, Octopath, Monster Hunter, AC Odyssey, Celeste, maybe Far Cry 5. But after that it will get more interestingThis year is stacked though and Heavy Rain had a lot of AAA novelty factor when it came out.
I'm still not 100% sure but Detroit is a game I played this year and wanted to finish without being distracted by other games. Most other games this year I've struggled to finish.
Such as RDR 2 which I'm still slogging through.
It'll probably be GoW or Detroit. Two games I loved for different reasons.
It will most likely be my goty. I still have to play JC4 and dragon quest but I highly doubt either will overtake it.
