Can't wait for Mario!

Interesting split on the best console games for PS4 and Xbox. Wonder why.

Dumb.

Sony doesn't really have any interesting to play.

Me everytime I think about Mario Odyssey


Nintendo will own the GOTY awards this year with Mario and BotW!

Between BOTW and Odyssey, they're competing with themselves

Their only real competition is a certain early access PC game.




...or maybe I should say, BoTW and Odyssey are that game's only competition.

Nevertheless, there's gonna be a lot of disappointment from the people listing games like Horizon, Persona 5, Yakuza, Nier, etc. as their expected GOTY



it's gonna be a three way battle between two Nintendo games and one early access PC game

just come to terms with that now

Along with other games like Persona 5 and NieR: Automata as well. Some many good games this year...

I haven't played Persona so can't speak for it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Nier, and in many other years, I think it would be a solid GOTY, but damn, this year has been insane with the quality of games.

Their only real competition is an early access survival game on PC


which they're both going to lose to
If it wasn't still Early Access, I would agree. However, just like how some baseball writers refuse to vote for players the first year of eligibility into the Hall of Fame (because of "tradition" and an "unspoken code"), I wouldn't be surprised if some refuse to give PUBG GOTY just because it's still Early Access. I mean look at this award listing - PUBG couldn't even beat out Shadow of War for best XBox game

kinda went on a media blackout on this since E3, not really because I hate spoilers, just the E3 presentation ws so good, I pretty much went "yeah im buying that day 1, I dont need to see more"

good to know its shaping up as expected at least.

"Best Mobile Game"


BOTW did peter out at the end...but then I thought, can I really complain about a game getting boring 160+ hours in? I mean, that's pretty damn solid.

When the selling point for that type of game is how long it is, I feel like complaining is valid.

First sentence is like "Hahaha, we'll see! That's a bet!"

Second sentence is like


"...what? You're kidding, right?"

Horizon is great. PUBG is PUBG. PUBG will sweep.

Do you really think a early access game is gonna win large amounts of game of the year awards? I don't remember Rust etc do it in the past? So not really.

Horizon is great. PUBG is PUBG; a goddamn phenomenon, and the biggest new release of 2017. PUBG will sweep.

Has an Early Access game ever won GOTY?

Super Mario Odyssey could have taken best Mobile game too but I am glad they decided to highlight something else.

Seems crazy to think that we could be seeing a case where Mario could actually be competing against Link in terms of "Game of the Year."

Honestly, I have no idea which game will win (or if they will get overtaken by any other game like Persona 5, or Horizon. Not too sure if Player Unknown counts or not here too, but congrats to them as well for having one of the biggest releases as well).

Still, Kudos to Nintendo for continuing to have the most dominant first year I think they have ever had with a console launch.

Why didn't it beat out Shadow of War for best Xbox Console game in this?

I doubt they'll make a bad Mario game but we're these awards at least based off of them playing the game? Or was it like E3 where the awards are really all for best game I watched a dev play for a few minutes?

'rust etc'

#1 - aren't comparable to PUBG by any metric - they're not of the same genre and not a one has seen a fraction of PUBG's explosive success and momentum
#2 - remained early access far longer than PUBG will

I should clarify that I expect this game to be out of Early Access before the end of the year. As do the developers of the game.

The selling point was not how long the game was. It was complete freedom. The game is literally only as long as you want it to be.

Mario, Zelda, Splatoon 2 split Nintendo votes; Persona 5, Nier, Horizon split PS votes; PUBG get all PC and XBox votes.
PUBG gonna win.

The only event Odyssey hasn't been playable at was the Switch January Event it was revealed in.

Current release window is Q4 2017. Brendan Greene made a statement a few months ago that the dev team would have PUBG done within 6 months of EA. He walked back on that statement the very next day, however, commenting that, while he still expects the game to be finished well before the end of the year, they'll take some extra time to polish things up if that's necessary. So we'll see.
