I would replace Skyward Sword with Twilight Princess. GOAT Zelda dungeons.

Fitting that 3 Zelda games and 3 Mario games have the most 10/10 in that list where each game that scored 10 came from the same console during it's era

Gawd, there have been so many good games out this year and many are very different experiences.

Such a good time to pick up a controller.

Very good taste, although I'm side-eyeing GTA 4 and Gran Turismo on there instead of GT 2.

I'll be picking it up on launch day. The Switch has been incredible this year with Zelda, Mario, Mario + Rabbids, and Splatoon 2.

People will zero in on GTA IV, but LittleBigPlanet is the odd one out on this list. It was praised for being the first major 'create your own' type game, and that meant people ignored the fact that it was an absolutely terrible platformer.

It had charm, online features, an amazing level designer - but without solid mechanics what does it all add up to? Who is saying 'You need to go back and play LittleBigPlanet' here in 2017? The rest of them I can see it - I can see them still being worth playing. LittleBigPlanet? Never. Massive disappointment.

Yep I can see that happening for sure if Mario is indeed on that same level. It's seeming like it could be.

Honestly, no. I loved Skyward Sword and gave it a good 60 hours.

It's a clear 9/10, just as Twilight Princess was a clear 8/10 even though people flipped their lids over the Gamespot score for that one.

Games with legitimate flaws deserve a critical eye.

If Pokemon and Metroid Prime 4 both get 10/10's, that's it. Nintendo should retire from the industry and ascend into the heavens.

Tbf to the Wii, it launched with a Zelda game and a full Mario game was released inside a year. More or less the same situation as the Switch. Both of these also had sequels within the 4 subsequent years aswell.

That's what everyone will say but in the end, Zelda will take home most of the awards. Not to the extent that something like TLOU did, where it took home the greatest percentage of GOTY awards, but the final tally will show a clear "winner".
