Boy do we have a treat in store next year. Can't wait.

Nice to see the love for Ueda and his team too.

Does it say which game creator picked what? I'd be more interested in seeing that list.

I hope Ueda picked Summer Lesson for a good laugh.

Persona 5 was probably the best JRPG launched in 2016... way ahead the others options that had big flaws and lack quality.

It is my most anticipated game of next year and I have no doubt it will be the most memorable one.

For this year TLG is the most memorable for me.

While knowing the answer to this question probably won't make waiting any easier, was there any reason given for delaying the western release several times?

Let me guess, Yosp liked P5. He's been on a crusade for that game recently :p

Most devs i think listed FF15 for its ambition to compete on the scale of western titles more than anything else.

God, I hope Nomura didn't pick FFXV. That would be so amazing.

It would be hilarious, but i think him not picking FF15 is more likely than we think considering how reluctant he has been to talk about the game since he left the project. I don't think he's actually mentioned it or responded to comments about it since.

Its seemingly a huge game that has a ton of translations that need to be done that are not only readable but translate a lot of the Japanese themes, cultural items and on into something the Western world can easily digest is not a fast or easy process. Combine this with all the voice acting that needs to be done and so on, that really adds up.

This is even more hilarious and impressive.

Apparently Uncharted 4 and INSIDE made the list after Summer Lesson.

Shame there's no lists of who voted for what.

Only 103 days, 9 hours, 4 minutes until everyone else can play it...

If he didn't pick FF15, he most likely picked World of Final Fantasy since he was involved in that project. Picking Persona 5 would be absolutely hysterical, though.

Interestingly all the top games are PS4 games. Some are shared with other platforms but none of them are unavailable on PS4.

Fortunate that persona 5 is next year because last guardian has clinched the title of goty for 2016 by a decent margin. Good to hear positive reception for persona5. Should be a goty contender for 2017 with relative ease.

Maybe for you. P5 sounds fantastic but the competition next year is incredibly stiff.

Oh I know. Zelda botw and Nier automata alone make it competitive but I've heard good things about persona 5 so can consider that as a candidate whereas zelda and Nier have no feedback to make a educated guess.

Whether Persona 5 can win GOTY 2017 is one thing (and I'm assuming probably not since it's still considered a niche series and the casual gaming crowd might not have heard of it)...

having finished the Japanese version of P5, I can say that a lot of people will be heading towards one, if not the best solidly-put together JRPG out there for the PS4. It performs well and I enjoyed a lot of my time with it and you wouldn't get strange glitches like falling through the sky, or suddenly find one of your character stepping on top of one another and that type of nonsense.

Just a solid A+ JRPG experience without any laughable bugs.

4gamer also conducts a year end poll like this, but it tends to be released closer to the end of the year (last year they posted it on the 29th).

It's so nice to hear that the right game had been picked for the most memorable title this year over Final Fantasy XV.
