Welcome to the Results thread for GOTY 2019 at NeoGAF! This year we condensed the categories into specific votes to get a more accurate picture and just simply awarded gold, silver bronze, we also taged the most anticipated title on here as well. Given the way cross platform is becoming more the norm the platform awards don't really make sense to carry on unless we bundle PC/Xbox together in cirteria. It just gives reasons to say hur-dur Microsoft at the moment. As always the quicklist is at the bottom of post 1, and the full list at the bottom of post 2

#20 = The legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening


#19 = Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown


#18 = Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night


#17 - Gears 5


#16 = Red Dead Redemption 2


#15 = Luigi's Mansion 3


#14 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare


#13 = Kingdom Hearts III


#12 = Apex Legends


#11 = A Plague Tale: Innocence


#10 = Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order


#9 = Disco Elysium


#8 = Astral Chain


#7 = Fire Emblem: Three Houses


#6 = Control


#5 = Days Gone


#4 = Devil may Cry V


THE TOP 3


#3 = Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice


#2 = Death Stranding

Well damn, I come here almost every day and somehow missed the voting thread lol.
Anyway, nice work OP.


Guess I'll have to try RE2 Remake after all. Never been that much into horror games and the entire concept of Mr X sounds annoying to me but all the praise has to be because of something!

Thanks for this, cormack12! The text bubbles look cool.

I like seeing these results. Really glad Link's Awakening squeaked into the top 20, I have a strong love of for that game dating back to the old gameboy version.

I guess I can't really keep ignoring Death Stranding. It must be a love it or hate it game, and I'll have to find out which one I am at some point.

Yeah that's amazing bad luck - it was a sticky at the top of gaming for a month. Here's a link.

I'm also not a survival horror guy but the style and atmosphere of the remake are off the charts, so I enjoyed it anyways.

What is the order of the Most Anticipated list? Top being most anticipated? Or bottom?
There can be no doubt that cyberpunk is the most anticipated, so top.

Yeah I thought that was the case. I'm used to the sticky threads always being the same so I usually skip them and scroll right down. There's also usually and ad banner right under them which makes it easier to skip over lol

A remake at number 1? Gaf, you’re boring.

I guess I should buy RE:2 now
Yeh I still haven't played it.

I've struggled to get into an RE game since 4 so that could be part of the reason why.

I'm excited for the remake of 3 though since that was my favourite as a kid.

I really wish Konami would remake the classic silent hill games but that won't ever happen :messenger_pensive:

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

#18 is my #1

These are some amazing results - a few of these games I figured were kinda "meh" and skipped them. I'll definitely be revisiting those decisions on a few of these games.

Death Stranding got robbed.

A remake (lacking serious key plot elements from the original) over a new masterpiece IP.
It's about what's the best game, the games origin or genre doesn't matter. The original REmake and RE2R are masterpieces. It's refreshing to see the huge effort Capcom put into re-imagining a classic rewarded like this.

Great work OP.

Crash Team Racing and Mortal Kombat 11 not even in the top 20... wow 🤔 Glad Days Gone is so high. Congrats to Resident Evil 2. Great game albeit not perfect

I thought Outer Worlds would get a shout. Apparently not even top 20 material. I shall wait for a steam sale then. 🤔
I gave it a crack on gamepass - I was really looking forward to it and initially it’s very pretty but there’s just nothing there, just a poor shooting gallery trying to disguise itself as a fallout game.

Yep, these are some cultured sons of bitches when you check the data


Reeeeally happy to see Astral Chain in the top 10 as well, you worry it would slip under too many people's radar but not here.

It doesn't work for all of them, but If you grab the biggest words from each game's text bubble and try to arrange them into a description then in some cases you get a short review of the game

Astral Chain - Unique Stylish Action
Link's Awakening - Beautiful Nostalgia Adventure
Sekiro - Best Challenging Hard Combat
Fire Emblem - Fun Strategy Waifu Combat
Death Stranding - Unique Kojima Experience
