In 2010 FFXIII was 3rd & FFXIV was 4th

The Final Fantasy franchise just can't escape failing :(

Undeserved imo

Odd to see Battleborn below FFXV, not sure of the reasoning there, but respectable Top 5 otherwise.

NMS with the completely deserved shit sandwich.

FFXV deserved more votes tbh. A shame because There's a GOTY behind that half cooked mess.

And NMS is the most deserving winner ever.

Think Palmer is the bigger loser here, but No Man's Sky did shit the bed with all of that pre-release stuff.

No man's sky was much better than the mess that was Mighty No.9. Mighty No.9 was robbed.

No Man's Sky earned that L, TBH. However, I'd say that it's doing well to try and redeem itself.

Also, FFXV is a pretty good game. But it's story and plot failed so fucking hard. Pity, because there's a fuck ton of potential there.

FFXV is a strange one. I can definitely understand why some people are so disappointed in it, despite it being my personal runner up GOTY right behind Uncharted 4.

The fact that most apparently totally forgot about Allison Rapp getting thrown out to dry by Nintendo under pressure by her harassers isn't really unexpected but still a bummer.

I bet IX didn't fail.
I think he meant in the last years.

Kinda obvious.

FF's status as an excellent RPG was not as questioned as it is today.

XII started changing that, but XIII really changed the status quo of the series.

But now, some monsters say FF was never really that great and stuff :p

How is FF XV a fail? I get that some people might not like it, but it's FAR from a fail. Battleborn should've taken its place.

EDIT: Nevermind. Only 2% of voters.

FFXV above Battleborn and the Wii U? Really?

I am glad Palmer Luckey got as many shouts as he did, anyway. That stuff is far worse than just a bad game.

I actually did forget about that and I feel awful. That event really soured me.
