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.

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

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



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

Well, we know it won’t be horizon, persona or PUBG.
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.

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.


The Fallen

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

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.

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 :/

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.
