I'm really surprised Fallout 4 has that many votes. All I heard was that it was great... not second place for the whole year.

It's my GOTY but I'm surprised it is so far ahead of everything else when the controls and combat were so divisive. Fallout 4 being second is even more surprising.

...Is there that many places to GIVE GOTY awards out?

I feel strongly no way or the other on this, but I have a feeling this number is including some really grasping crediable GOTY sources. Not saying lowering the number wouod be against Witcher's favor, and they deserve it in my eyes for how they treated customers, but the numbers given here almost sounds like they dug every site that gave a GOTY award out or something.

Well deserved(the best and only western RPG that I actually loved and finished), but to be fair there were no competition after MGSV and FO4's disappointment and UC4 delay.

just like Bayonetta 2 in 2014 Bloodborne is way too niche to compete on GOTY awards.

Those aspects don't seem to be too important to the gaming media at large. It's all about atmosphere and overall immersion.

The Witcher III is my third favorite game of the year despite its serviceable combat. And I'm all about good combat, which is a testament to how well The Wither III excels at everything else.

I think this is one of the most impressive things about the games, over however many hundreds of hours put into all three games, every single one of those endings is fantastic in its own way and a great closer to the series

I think it is a great game, and it is nice to see it getting so much attention over titles like Fallout 4 and MGSV. Hopefully more titles in the future will try to follow Witcher 3's example.

Is the combat that bad? People seem split on the issue but how can a core mechanic being divisive lead to so many awards?

If someone (me) cares only about "gameplay" and nothing for story, should they bother?

Exactly 90 more awards than GTAV I said goddamn. Really neat to have a site that documents this stuff.

The claims that the combat is absolutely terrible at worst serviceable at best are quite exaggerated. It's not BB but is accomplishes the feel that you'd get if you were reading the books and fixed a ton of the issues that the Witcher 2 had with it's combat. You can find many build guides as well as in-depth tutorials that explain how invincibility frames work. It's a very story heavy game, very little of the content, (if any) doesn't have a story behind it.

The combat is serviceable.

If you care nothing for narrative, don't touch this game.

While it wasn't one of my favourite games of that year, I did have a decent time with it and completely understand why people would pick it. It does a lot, and most of it is done really well. It also seems to be doing a good job with its DLC, which it honestly didn't even need to do given the vast amount of content in the core game. Deserved props for CD Projekt.

There is more to gameplay than combat.
For example a quest where you resolve it by talking the characters out of fighting, results in no combat, but it's still gameplay.

But if you literally don't care about anything other than how the fighting feels, then no, don't get it, because it is serviceable at best.

here's the only times an m-rated western game didn't get the majority of the awards:

2009: uncharted 2 (western-made, t-rating)
2005: resident evil 4 (japanese-made, m-rating)
2003: star wars: knights of the old republic (western-made, t-rating)

at least, going back to 2003. i would just have to assume that gta vice city got it in 2002.
