Boring GOTY: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
It's a boring choice, it's showing up on a lot of GOTY lists, but it was also the game I had the most fun playing this year.
Not boring GOTY: Gravity Rush 2
It can be frustrating, the story is weird and disjointed, but I love the momentum, it has some wild side-quests, including maybe my favourite in a game ever, and a cast full of endearing characters.
Remaster of the year: Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
Is always been an FF12 apologist, I genuinely love it, and the Zodiac Age fixed what was, in my view, the games biggest flaw, by adding a job system so all your characters don't end up very samey by the end.
Game I'm most upset to have not gotten to yet: TIE - Xenoblade Chronicles 2 & Yakuza 0/Kiwami
It's been a packed year, so it was hard to get to everything I wanted to. Xenoblade is one of my favorite RPGs, so I'm looking forward to spending some time over the holidays playing 2. I've always wanted to try getting into Yakuza, so with 0 and Kiwami this year, it seems like the best way to jump in. Going to have to wait until early 2018 to take the plunge.
