RE2 was 18th in NPD, eras list is very different from a top sales chart. And it isnt random users, these are all video game enthusiast who often play alot more video games than reviewers do, so whos more qualified to vote?You can't really get an objective assessment of games through a popular vote of random people, since obviously the games that sold the most will have a massive advantage. Ideally everyone voting would have played every significant game, but that's obviously impossible. Niche games like Disco Elysium or Outer Wilds don't stand a chance against behemoths like RE2 for this reason.
Yeah I wasn't saying it wasn't a great game. But obviously a lot more Resetera posters bought RE2 than Outer Wilds, making it so Outer Wilds realistically can't compete. I was just speculating about DS based on it getting the most #1 spots, not really saying anything definitive.
It’s not like God of War won last year here.
Not necessarily. Some games have a really high entry barrier that many people are not willing to go through (and understandably so). Example: Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers...It’s not like God of War won last year here.
Maybe people just didn’t like it or wasn’t interested in playing it. Let’s be real here. If the game is universally amazing, it will get what it deserves and it has.
That's my second favorite game of the year. Did my part by giving it a huge vote.
RE2 isn't just a remake, it's possibly the best remake ever, at least until FF7 gets released. It wasn't my personal #1 but I still think it deserved the win. I just hope they try remaking RE1 the same way now!I'm a bit surprised that RE2 won, I think that Sekiro would have been a better representative for 2019. The fact that a remake is the GOTY shows that it was not a memorable year for AAA releases.
I'm surprised that Three Houses got more points that Death Stranding, 3rd place is a great performance for a niche series such as Fire Emblem.
Finally I'm very happy about Slay the Spire and Baba is You being in the top 20 ! I think Katana Zero would deserve a spot here as well.
Hell yeah, Picross S3. Between that and finally going back and playing Picross 3D last year, I arguably played too much Picross.let's see
1. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening --> 14
2. Super Mario Maker 2 --> 19
3. Sayonara Wild Hearts --> 29
4. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe --> 171
5. Tetris 99 --> 26
6. Yoshi's Crafted World --> 66
7. PICROSS S3 --> 255
8. Pilgrims --> 257
not too bad. more people need to play pilgrims tho, it's a great (and very short and cheap) game.
i beat 4 picross games in 2018. S3, kemono friends, lord of the nazarick, and konami pixel puzzle collection. that's probably a combined 200 hours of picross. i have a problem, i know
GAME OF THE DECADE! Yes! This will be fun.InformationIn the coming weeks we will be working with the Game of the Year team to open voting for the Game of the Decade. Any game published in the last 10 years will be eligible and can be voted for. This means you should go back and replay all of your favorite games before voting opens so you can pick which you liked the best.
More information on the Game of the Decade vote will be forthcoming.
Honestly, it didn't make my top ten... but that was an oversight. I feel ashamed of my words and deeds. It definitely belonged on my list. It was one of the ten best games released this year.
Obviously opinions and all that, but I feel the opposite, honestly. I can think of at least two games from 2019 that are locks on my top ten of the decade, with a couple contenders even beyond that. Can't say the same for 2012-2014 and 2016 tbh.
Same for me lol. 2019 would have 2 in my top 10 and 4 if it was a top 15. That early year run was too good.
There's an S3? Nice! I'm still working my way through S2. This is good to know though. :) Played through the Zelda 3DS one recently and chipping away at Pictoquest too. I really enjoy these types of games.
I feel so lucky that my 2 favorite genres are survival horror and character action games, it's hard to put any game above RE2 and DMC5 from the decade for those genres. Awesome year for me!
If I voted (I don't play enough games a year to really feel proper voting anymore), I don't think I'd put this game in my top 10. I enjoyed it enough, but as it went on it got a bit too repetitive for me, and I found it to be too much of a checklist / puzzle game when I'd personally probably enjoy it more as an action exploration game. I get why people like it, it's a pretty appealing concept, charming music that reacts to what you're doing, funny gameplay and quite different than your typical game, plus it's fun to be an asshole (at least in games) and the honking is great, but it just didn't last through even as short as it was for me. I definitely don't regret buying it, but I enjoyed my time in say Hollow Knight much more.
A lot of games on this list do like DMC5 and Sekiro.
My #1 of the decade came out this year but that's it. The rest are from other years.
Yeah, I narrowed it down to 10 today, too. But I feel bad about several things I left out. My initial list of games good enough to be in the top 10 was 44 games.
That’s probably a good guess.Didn’t expect Fire Emblem > DeathStranding. Nice.
Game of the Decade Predictions:
2. The Witcher 3
3. Dark Souls
4. The Last of Us
6. God of War
8. Mass Effect 2
9. Red Dead 1 or 2
10. Super Mario Galaxy 2
Could see Resident Evil 2 sneaking in though
