    Seems fair. A lot of people would swap in Nier somewhere, though.

    It amuses me that 40% of the nominees can still be played on legacy consoles.

    Honestly kind of surprised Persona 5 is there. I loved it, but I feel like it was a bit niche so I wasn't expecting it here

    I'm so happy Persona 5 is nominated, really.
    That said, Breath of the Wild has this.

    Pleasantly surprised to see Persona 5 on that list. Mario or Zelda will most likely win though.

    Surprised P5 made it in over Wolf2.

    But yeah it's most likely going to be Zelda who win this.

    It'll be interesting to see how/if PUBG's huge player base factors into this.

    Well, I guess outta those I'll vote for Persona 5.

    Prey got one nomination and that's for Best Action game.

    Not Best Art...not best Music....

    Disgusting

    Anyway GOTY this year is pretty clear cut. Gonna be between PUBG and a Nintendo game

    PUBG shouldn't be on the list, it should compete next year when it's released. It's honestly the front runner here, despite BOTW and Mario being near perfect games, PUBG is far bigger.

    P5 or HZD for me, though I'm surprised P5 made it lol

    Persona 5 should win, but there's no way Mario or Zelda don't walk away victorious.

    PUBG is nice and all but it's unfinished still. You might as well nominate Metroid Prime 4 too.

    It's probably gonna be BotW, and I loved BotW, but the correct answer is Mario.

    I'd like to point out how insane it is that 2 out of 5 GotY spots for one year are from one developer though. We should pretty much give Nintendo the copyright to the year 2017.

    Ack no Hollow Knight in game score... also Divinity had an amazing voice cast, but no way they would get nominated over the big games.
    Darkwood is another indie game with no chance that maybe deserved recognition in the sound category.

    I *think* just in terms of innovation in the series, BOTW would have to win it. No disrespect to the other noms.

    Personally I would replace Persona 5 with Nier. This reminded me I still need to play Horizon.

  38. Can they only nominate 5 games? That would explain why Nier: Automata is not on the list.

    Persona 5 probably won’t win because Persona but I’m happy to see it on there. Not sure if PUBG belongs on there considering all the games that came out this year but people love it so it’s understandable.

    Those are some pretty great games.

    PUBG is so broken and lacks so many features and modes and is certainly lacking in gameplay, it's kind of a kick in the balls to many other games released this year :/

    Horizon doesn't belong on that list. It wouldn't belong if the list was 10 games long.

    Dang Guerilla. They bring out a pretty great game in HZD, which would be a home run GOTY in 2016 only to get stomped by two Nintendo games.

    Also I'm sorry Brian Bloom is the best voice actor this year, youd be hard pressed to find a voice cast as excellent as Wolfenstein's

    Time for PUBG's moment to shine. Would be amazing if it won GOTY, lol.
