01. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End = 1964 points, 32 honorable mentions

Probably the best Uncharted game. Naughty Dog took a bit of what they learned from TLOU and applied it pretty well to a completely different series. Still suffers from some of the same nagging issues in previous games, but overall UC4 is a very competent blockbuster adventure game with some of the coolest sets in the series.

02. Doom = 1776 points, 35 honorable mentions

03. Overwatch = 1607 points, 25 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by BoxManLocke

Extremely fun, extremely addictive, casual-friendly but also unusually deep gameplay, lovely character design with a diverse and inclusive cast. Also, post-launch support has been fantastic. I see myself still paying this in several years.

When I was hooked on this game, nothing else would suffice. Great cast of characters and locales, just casual enough for a casual like me to enjoy. I don't think it tops Splatoon as my favorite multiplayer shooter this gen but it comes damn close.



04. Dark Souls III = 1393 points, 8 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by chrixter

Dark Souls III is the most refined iteration of the Souls series, with even more polished combat and engaging encounter design than ever before. It has my favorite gallery of enemies and bosses of any game I’ve ever played.

Originally Posted by DaxMedFlax

My most played game of 2016, and when all is said and done, my GOTY. It might not bring all that much new to the table, but what is here is pretty much as good as it gets in this favorite hobby of mine.


05. The Last Guardian = 1310 points, 20 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Reverend Funk

Would give it all ten spots if I could. Best soundtrack of the year, best story, best everything, a true masterpiece. This is a game that I will be thinking about for years.

A mesmerizing journey that tackles the concept of companionship, one that instantly struck a chord with me as a pet owner. Beautifully directed with the sense of wonder you expect from a Ueda game fully intact despite the long development cycle. Painstakingly animated, puzzles that give pause but are never too tough to decipher, lovely soundtrack. Trico is unforgettable.


06. Final Fantasy XV = 969 points, 31 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by ULTROS!

The ultimate flawed gem. A beautiful mess of a game. Despite the issues, this game got me hooked for a long time. The beautiful visuals, the engrossing cast, the fully realized world. It makes a wonderful and fun game.

Originally Posted by Zakalwe

A game hasn't pulled me in like this since X. A true flawed gem, more than the sum, incredible that it even exists in a decent state. I have so much to say about XV, too much for this post. Can't wait to see the content they add in the future.


07. Titanfall 2 = 933 points, 39 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Franchuzas87

The campaign, while short, is absolutely fantastic. Like a Call of Duty mixed with Mirror's Edge, mixed with Steel Battalion, mixed with some other great and random ideas like the factory of a DKC game or the timeshift stones of Skyward Sword.

Originally Posted by Zackat

If GotY was about choosing your single favorite mission in a game for the whole year, this game would be number 1 for me. I loved the whole campaign, the multiplayer is great fun as well. A game that was sent out to die with an extremely inconvenient launch time, it deserves more success than it garnered.


08. The Witness = 899 points, 17 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by chrominance

A unique masterpiece. Learning how to solve the various puzzles without hand-holding or really many hints at all was one of the most engrossing experiences of the year. Do I believe in Jonathan Blow's worldview as expressed in the game? No. But it's at least an intriguing subject of discussion. Finishing the "challenge" is still one of my proudest achievements in gaming.

Originally Posted by takoyaki

An amazing experience from start to finish. The Witness frequently introduces clever new ideas that will keep you on your toes and hides some of its biggest secrets in plain sight, you just won't know it until you've learned enough of the visual language that the game uses to communicate with you. It rivals Portal as the best puzzle video-game ever made. The world design, setting and surrounding mystery made it truly memorable. One of those rare games that show you what makes this medium so special and sticks with you long after you've finished it.


09. Inside = 826 points, 35 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Dusk Golem

With excellent atmosphere in a haunting and cold world, INSIDE joins a nameless boy who treks from farmland to city to underground lakes to get inside... clever puzzle bits, and amazing animation which helps gives a detailed look on a mostly silent world. Ending is fun but didn't blow me away like most.

Originally Posted by DaxMedFlax

An incredibly polished game from start to finish. I literally had my mouth agape the last 30 minutes of the game, and when the credits rolled I was filled with so much… weird emotion. Absolutely loved it.


10. Hitman = 657 points, 25 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by HeelPower

A towering achievement when it comes to world building. Stunningly consistent quality all through out the maps. Exploring each map was a joy as one figures out how to take out the next target while being fully immersed in truly active,living,breathing often funny & charming worlds. They built something even Rockstar's finest would be envious of.


11. Ratchet & Clank = 581 points, 32 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by HeisenbergWW62

This game went beyond being a simple remake and carved an identity of its own, and felt like a new game to me despite being a fan of the series since the original. Game was a total blast to play.


12. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine = 564 points, 14 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Plum

Blood and Wine has the content and quality of a full game, yet I got it on release at just over Ł10. Witcher 3 was my GOTY for 2015, so more of the same is not an issue. Whilst failing to live up to the writing heights of Hearts of Stone, Blood and Wine is a fitting end to Geralt's story in an expansion that encapsulates all I love about the series.

Originally Posted by BoxManLocke

The fact that people would consider putting a DLC in their GOTY list after such an amazing year for games should tell you all you need to know about CDProjekt's talent, dedication and respect for the players. This has more content than most full games, for a fucking third of the price, and at the same level of quality if not better than the original TW3. The story is not as good as Hearts Of Stone , but it's still excellent and this time, it's a whole new world to explore. Really can't praise these developers enough.


13. Pokémon Sun/Moon = 508 points, 17 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by WiiRevolution1

My favorite game of 2017. I mainly got it for the online, but it would be my GOTY even if it was single player only. For the first real time I was hooked into the story. So many great characters and memorable moments. When you add in the great online this comes off as a truly fantastic game and my favorite Pokemon game of all time.



14. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided = 447 points, 18 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by AHA-Lambda

A very worthy follow up to 2011's Human Revolution that returns with a single but greatly expanded hub world allowing for some of the greatest variety and exploration systems in AAA games that I haven't seen in many years. Imo, this will be looked on with more fondness down the line than it seems to be receiving at present.



15. Dishonored 2 = 438 points, 23 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by YaBish

Arkane took everything that worked with the first game, and polished it to a fine sheen. The ways to get through levels, the way that powers work together in interesting ways, and just the general player-empowerment puts this game over the top. Not to mention one of my favorite one-two punches in level design ever in levels 7 and 8. Like the first game, I can see myself coming back to this one for years to come.



16. Stardew Valley = 374 points, 18 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Earthpainting

If GotY was measured in amount of time wasted, Stardew Valley would easily be a top contender. As someone who loves Harvest Moon, but kind of laments the low-budget rut it's in, this game was such a pleasant surprise. It takes the Harvest Moon formula, and expands upon it greatly. Given that this is a game made by pretty much a single person, there's some slight rough patches here and there, but they're easily forgiven. ConcernedApe raised the bar in the genre, and left the door open for a mod scene that can probably keep the game going for quite another while.



17. XCOM 2 = 341 points, 7 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by illusionary

I've loved X-Com from the days of the original games so Firaxis' remakes start from a strong position in my mind. While the strategic layer may not be as deep as the originals, XCOM remains an immensely satisfying tactical game, retaining that 'just one more turn' feeling - and this sequel builds on that in every way.



18. Battlefield 1 = 332 points, 21 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by SoldierIce64

Easily my favorite Battlefield game since BF2, I really enjoyed the World War 1 setting, increased destruction, incredible visuals and audio. My only complaints are the lack of important armies and also gore, which would've set the tone even more for how horrible this war was. But from what I can tell this game's popularity got more people interested in WW1 and that's what matters the most.



19. Firewatch = 322 points, 35 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by FelipeMGM

For me It took the next step when it comes to walking simulators/FPX's. Introducing some traversing mechanics like the map and having an open world really worked well for me to connect to this world, even though exploration incentives were kinda limited. But what really shines here is the greatly written dialogues delivered amazingly well both by Cissy Jones and Rich Sommer. I was really invested in these two stories, and even though coices hardly change anything massive in gameplay or overall story, it made me feel more like a part of this. Also, Olly Moss art which can only be a plus.



20. Fire Emblem Fates = 317 points, 21 honorable mentions

Originally Posted by Makoto Yuki

An excellent entry that manages to give something to classical purists with Conquest, and something for new fans who love Awakening with Birthright. While it's strange that they are trying to cater the hardcore fans and the new fan base established with Awakening, Fire Emblem Fates is still move of that RNG tactical goodness the series has been known for.

Wow, Uncharted 4 and DOOM! Didn't expect that at all. Was hoping DOOM would make it high on the list but wasn't expecting it anywhere near #2. Well done.

PS4 exclusives picking up GAF GOTY two years in a row, that's impressive. Need to find a deal on a PS4 Pro and get in on the action already.

Glad to see Dishonored 2 in the top 15 (my personal GOTY). This game is great, don't sleep on it folks!

Great work on the thread guys!

Wow people liked uncharted a lot more than I realised. Have a feeling this might be one of those times people look back in 5 years and wonder how it managed to win, but could be just my personal bias speaking. That's certainly a great list of games anyway, 2016 was a fantastic year.

Strongly disagree with Uncharted being #1. I don't think it's the type of game design we should be rewarding, but it is what it is.

Congrats to all the winners.

When you're not a big boy but your parents make you sit at the big boy table, you get ignored.

Dishonored 2 had no business launching during the holiday season. But since it did I can pick it up this year for like 10 bucks soon enough. Why would I do it any other way.

The Last Guardian cracking the top 5 is absolutely insane to me, but about what I expected. Uncharted is a predictable populist pick, and it's hard to act surprised that it won out amongst this community.

Glad to see Hitman got some love, though.

That is a STRONG Top 10. 8 of the 10 made my list, and my other two are in the Top 15.

Not having played FFXV yet is my only regret. Pretty much got to play everything else I wanted to play in 2016, which is a rarity. Amazing year!

Awesome job timetokill and cheesemeister yet again!

Oh, and good job GAF. Uncharted 4 is a fine choice (it was my #1C! :-p)

Dishonored 2 is more deserving of being at the big boy table than 90% of AAA titles. Game is straight fire.

Be specific. If it's with Uncharted 4, it easily has the strongest gameplay in the series and is one of the most dynamic third person shooters EVER created with excellent gun play and sound design.

The issue with the gameplay is the pacing of it within the story. But there's also the MP, which people seem to ignore for some reason. Many of the game mechanics carry over and from the SP and it can be a ton of fun.
