What is your GOTY so far?

  • I've yet to play a game worthy of that title this year, most of the overhyped games people would expect are honestly just that....hype.

    Though I do have an import I expect to take that title late this year, which is....kind of sad.

  • It really has to be between Uncharted 4 and Dark Souls 3, trending towards Uncharted 4.

    Wish we could have gotten a spoilercast from the Allies on Uncharted 4 just like we got with DS3. I did like that Bosman's Kings of Context video focused solely on chapter 4 from Uncharted as that has to be one of my favorite chapters in all of video games

  • @Lexad Agreed. I was so blown away by every detail and Mr. Bosman pretty much covered everything that made that chapter phenomenal. And at the time I thought, "This is just Chapter 4! This is going to be fantastic." And it was.

  • Dark souls. GOTY every year.

    Dark souls. GOTY every year.

    every year? how my friend?

  • @Tegs said in What is your GOTY so far?:

    Dark souls. GOTY every year.

    It's going to be impossible to say this next year. If you listen real closely, you can hear the sound of Ian weeping in the distance.

  • @Black-Cell that's just how good it is. don't question my logic.

  • @Tegs well logic says that if you play the game every year, and no other game is better then yeah, it'll always be your GOTY.

  • So Far: Dark Souls 3 and XCOM2 but only by default. No PS4 to play UC4.
    Secretly Hopes Will Be But Probably Not: No Man's Sky sigh

    @Black-Cell that's just how good it is. don't question my logic.

    well i found dark souls to be very overrated. the PC version show xbox button prompt prove how lazy developers are while handling PC port.

  • Witcher 3 second time in a row! Because of the DLC ;P

    If that wouldn't be counted I'd say Xcom 2. It's crazy how fresh it felt after the previous one, which is one of the greatest games also. Too bad the sequel ran really bad even on high end computers, don't know if it has been fixed. It's the only thing making it worse compared to first one.

  • Yeah, it's Souls 3. I am savoring it.

  • @Nillend I need to watch this ManUps. Do you remember which one it is?

    Edit: think I got it.

    Runner up is Blood & Wine.
    And inb4 "It's just a DLC" it's longer than most other full games, better than most other games, and it feels entirely fresh. So I think it should be eligible. They could have easily slapped Witcher 4 on it and no one would have even noticed it wasn't a new game.

  • @iconmaster You've got it :D

  • I can't ever pick just one GOTY. I just know that I enjoyed Overwatch, Uncharted 4 and Dark Souls III a lot so far. I'll pick up Fire Emblem throughout the Summer, that might be giving me feels as well probably.

  • Dark Souls 3 , can't wait for the dlc's, Doom was also surprisingly amazing.

    A full priced multiplayer-only game

    $40 on PC, the multiplayer is the only part of the game promised and delivers.

    without completed multiplayer features at launch

    But it does? Full list of 12 maps + 21 characters, with a SEASONAL competitive mode and no chance of paid DLC characters or maps, and delivering on that seasonal product. It launched with the promise of 3, 3 month seasons per year with the first season starting in the summer.

    and has terrible micro-transactions

    That are purely cosmetic and you can earn every single thing by playing the game. They are for people who like the game and have disposable income. Literally no effect on gameplay or non microtransaction players' experiences.

    I fear for the future of the industry if people tells publishers that they like this stuff

    We are telling them we like polished, competitive and unique multiplayer shooters with no gameplay DLC or microtransactions. We are also telling them that cosmetics are great for microtransactions because they impact the game 0%.

    I also find Uncharted 4 multiplayer to be way better

    That's totally fine, but the vast majority disagree with you so this can't be used as any kind of argument.

    Team Fortress already exist if you didn't know about it before Overwatch

    This comparison is always made and just isn't applicable. Are modes similar? Sure. Are 4 or 5 characters in Overwatch comparable to Team Fortress' ENTIRE CAST? Yea, they are both role-based shooters. The thing is that OW offers 10 times the variety of TF2, and a new community and growing game. TF2 has been flopping for a long time now, especially since F2P and crates that are unlockable for $2.50 and have different attributes and gameplay effects than the base weapons. Silly microtransactions, what are we telling developers?

    If you want to nitpick mechanics, Overwatch has cooldown in an action shooter genre. That is, automatically, a turn off and poor game design to introduce a mechanic that counters the genre.

    This is just insane. The game needs to be balanced while till giving players powerful abilities. This mechanic is in no way counter to the genre, it adds a depth to when you use abilities, especially ultimates. If you don't like it that is fine, but as a statement of fact you are completely incorrect.

    It is totally cool that OW is not your thing and you hate it. That isn't what I am disputing. It is just that the reasons you provided are short sighted and not at all indicative of someone who has knowledge of the game, or its business model, or its content.
