That, or it will be there "That person with the lower review score than everyone else is just clickbaiting!!!1!!111" like the reaction over the Jim Sterling Breath of the Wild review.

Turns out not everyone necessarily likes a game the same as everyone else. Big whoop.

Not surprised. 3D Mario games are probably the most consistently well-made games out there. They're all excellent.

Nevertheless, the Switch is having the best 1st year ever. Incredible.

Personally I really hope not. BOTW is the only game I've played this year I've actively disliked.

Odyssey looks real good though.

GTA IV, Rock Band 3, SS and LBP are the only games that donít belong on that list. Pretty good batting average for a 24-year old magazine.

Odyssey is going to be ridiculous.

Outlets should pick the one they personally enjoyed more or got more votes in their internal poll or whatever. It isn't an objective quality measure.

Mario games always score really high, but critics rarely ever award them with GOTY.

Hell wasn't Mario Galaxy 2 the highest reviewed game of 2010? But RDR and ME2 were the ones that seemed to walk away with the awards.

Zelda will prob win GOTY since there is this reverence for that series that I will never understand.

I'd be pleasantly surprised if Mario wins though. I had no doubt the game would be good. The trailers alone filled me with joy.

If Nintendo can keep beast mode going for this console cycle then the switch will be the GOAT Nintendo produced machine.

Nostalgia will say other machines,maybe SNES or Wii or DS but I think the switch will take the crown.

I just hope sales go through the roof for this little wonderful machine

OK I'm not totally convinced thats a good thing. Korok seeds were fun little distractions, but not the meat of the game. I hope the moons are all much more substantial. Also the korok seeds stop meaning anything after you have about half of them.

It is crazy that Nintendo was able to engineer one of the greatest first party years for a console's launch. Couple that with the awesome indie support and a surprising amount of third party support and this is gotta be one of the best years for a Nintendo console in a long, long time.

He wasnt saying the game was gon be the same.

As it stands though BOTW is my GOTY still and I still aint finished it. I havenít felt that way about a game in a long time. Coming from a pure gameplay experience.

I'd say the Switch has had the best launch year in the history of video games.

Excellent. It sounds silly to doubt a flagship Mario game, but I'm glad it seems to be as great as everyone hoped it would be. Perhaps even better. I'm still not tempted to buy a Switch just yet, but it looks like there will be plenty of great games waiting for me when I finally take the plunge.

I don't know about that...
Skyward Sword lost to Skyrim, Portal 2, Arkham City and U3.
Galaxy 2 lost to RDR and ME2
Galaxy slightly lost to Bioshock by 2 GOTYs.
Twilight Princess lost to Gears and Oblivion

Odyssey will take the lead, and Zelda will most like follow in 2nd or 3rd place.
I could see Nintendo themselves winning overall GOTYs with the combination of Odyssey and Zelda. So in a way, its a win-win either way.

Yeah, and just think we don't have have pokemon, metroid, and a real fire emblem game yet.

I get a feeling we're getting GTA on this system too. This is on course to being the best Nintendo system and we're less than a year in its life.
