GOTY 2016 - last day to nominate a game, voting starts Monday.

Every year since 2004 @mcc has done a fantastic Game of the Year poll on this forum, the last couple of years a few of us have taken over the running of this, still using the same scripts MCC wrote (and by and large the same OP!). Well, she's given me a prod this year and asked if it's going ahead again so I've decided to get the nominations thread up now. Thanks to @infidel yet again for hosting.

There are a lot of Game of the Year polls out there, but this one is special. Where most GOTY polls just give you a list of maybe five of the best-selling games from the last year, and ask you to choose your favorite, THIS poll gives you a list of EVERY game that came out in the last year (more or less) and asks you to vote for [up to] your top 20-- ranked by how much you liked them. Here's last year's poll if you want to see how this works. We actually wind up with a serviceable ranking of the top hundred or so games from the last year, with blockbusters, obscurities and cult hits mixed in side by side, and a pretty color-coded graph.

Here's the plan: We're taking nominations in this thread until the evening of January 15th. This gives people AGES to nominate games.

We'll then run the poll for one week, or a little longer if people need.

So, let's get some nominations. Remember, the point of this is to have the most comprehensive list of games possible! So any game that anyone might POSSIBLY put in their top 20 deserves to go on the list.

The rules for nomination are:
* It must have been legally released IN AMERICA for the first time in 2016
* It must be a new game-- no ports, no expansion packs.

We can try to be flexible about these rules. But here's the underlying point of the rules: Every game gets one shot. Think about it, if this game you like got on one year, and then we snuck its expansion pack on the next year… half the people who liked it will vote one year and half the other and it will get really low scores. You like this game, but it's gonna get stiffed in the poll. Avoid that.

This list has come from Wikipedia, so there's likely an awful lot that doesn't meet 'our rules', so please feel free to point them out and I'll get rid, as well as any potential duplicates.

Working nominations list in next post. Also last year we had some discussions about episodic content, when should something be added to the list. I THINK the consensus was that it should go in the year where the final episode is released. Again, rules are flexible, this is meant to be fun not something to fight over.

Regarding platforms, we have:

3DS
HTCVive
Mobile
OculusRift
PC
PlayStationVR
PS3
PS4
PSVita
WiiU
XBO

Open to debate on the VR platforms.

    Unrelated, but I think i shared an elevator with @mcc at GaymerX East this year. But it's one of those things where I couldn't be sure and so I just said nothing.

    Anyway, boy have I not played enough 2016 releases that i own yet.

    I know one of the rules is "no expansion packs", but man, I really want to nominate The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine here.

    furlionfurlion Riskbreaker Lea MondeRegistered User regular
    I think the rule in the past has been new platforms do not count as a new entry right? If so I see a few but I may be wrong.

    Woooo

    I would like to nominate

    * Ladykiller in a Bind (PC)
    * Kindred Spirits on the Roof (PC)

    Also, I would like to point this out on your current list
    I Am Setsuna[A] (PS4,PSVita)
    I Am Setsuna[B] (PC,PS4)
    

    That does not look right

    @cooljammer00 SAY HI NEXT TIME

    Also note technically the name of this game is

    * My Twin Brother Made Me Crossdress As Him And Now I Have To Deal With A Geeky Stalker And A Domme Beauty Who Want Me In A Bind!! or, Ladykiller in a Bind (PC)

    But I think it would be better to shorten it to "Ladykiller in a Bind"

    I would think Hitman (2016) and its various episodes would be considered just 1 entry instead of the 3 or 4 I see right now (around 240ish on the list).

    Also, the OP says '2015' instead of '2016' for nomination rules.

    Okay so

    You are running this poll, not me, and you are not obligated to honor my opinions here.

    But, here are some comments:
    Adr1ft (PS4)
    Adrift (OculusRift)
    

    These appear to be the same game and should probably be consolidated
    Adventures of Mana (Mobile)
    

    Should read Adventures of Mana (Mobile, Vita), the Vita version is available in the US
    Assassin's Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack (PC,PS4,PSVita,XBO)
    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (PC,PS4,XBO)
    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    India and Russia are part of the trilogy pack. Could these be consolidated? (The trilogy pack apparently also contains China, which was released in 2015, but I don’t know if that was on last year’s list)
    Axiom Verge (PSVita)
    

    This is a wonderful game but it is a port and not new
    Bastion (XBO)
    

    Also a port and not a new game
    Berserk[A] (PS3,PS4,PSVita)
    

    What is this? Is this “Berserk and the Band of the Hawk”? If so, Wikipedia seems to suggest it is not out in North America yet.
    BioShock: The Collection (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    I do not know much about this but I suspect this should count as a port and not a new game
    BlazBlue: Central Fiction (PS3,PS4)
    BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend (PC)
    

    Do you really want to list both of these? It looks like “Extend” is an expansion pack and not a new game
    Bully: Anniversary Edition (Mobile)
    

    Is this a new game? Sincere question. I don’t know.
    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3[A] (PS4,PSVita)
    

    Not sure if you care about such things but I don’t think this has been released in North America
    Dear Esther: Landmark Edition (PS4,XBO)
    

    Is this a new game or a port? Cursory google check suggests port
    Dragon Quest Builders[A] (PS3,PS4,PSVita)
    Dragon Quest Builders[B] (PS4,PSVita)[/code
    
    What’s this
    
    [code]Final Fantasy IX (Mobile,PC)
    

    I suspect this is not a new game
    Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- (PS3,PS4)
    Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator (PC)
    

    These should be merged
    Hitman Go: Definitive Edition (PC,PS4,PSVita)
    Hitman: Hokkaido (PC,PS4,XBO)
    Hitman: Intro Pack (PC,PS4,XBO)
    Hitman: Marrakesh (PC,PS4,XBO)
    Hitman: Sapienza (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    I am not bothering to look into this but I doubt five separate hitman games were released this year
    Kerbal Space Program (PS4)
    

    Is this a new game or a port?
    Lostwinds (PC)
    Lostwinds 2: Winter of the Melodias (PC)
    

    These are probably ports and not new games
    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (PS4)
    

    The PC and XB1 versions of this game were on last year’s list
    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (PC,PS4,XBO)
    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    I suspect these are ports and not new games
    MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies (PC)
    

    How the fuck is this a real game that got released

    (Note: I looked it up. It actually is a real game that got released)
    Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 — Order Up! (Mobile,PC,PS3,PS4,X360,XBO)
    Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 7 — Access Denied (Mobile,PC,PS3,PS4,X360,XBO)
    Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 8 — A Journey's End? (Mobile,PC,PS3,PS4,X360,XBO)
    Minecraft: Story Mode: Episode 1 — The Order of the Stone (WiiU)
    

    What is happening here

    Could these be consolidated into one “Minecraft: Story Mode” entry in some way
    N++ (PC)
    

    Okay so

    This is awkward but

    This game was technically released in 2015 for PS4

    BUT

    It was missed in the 2015 nomination process

    So my recommendation is putting this down as N++ (PS4, PC)

    Cuz it’s SO GOOD and i want to vote for it and we didn’t get the chance last year
    No Time to Explain (PS4)
    

    This one’s even MORE awkward.

    This game was:
    - Released in 2013 for PC
    - Released in 2015 for XB1
    - Was not in the PA GOTY poll EITHER of those two years
    (Let’s ignore the 2011 flash game, that was not the same game)

    So I don’t know what the right thing to do with this is
    Mugen Souls Z (PC)
    

    Nitpicking like mad here but a PS3 version of this was released in 2013. … it… wasn’t on the 2013 poll, if you’re wondering. I'm not totally sure what I’m looking at here
    Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty (WiiU)
    Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! (PSVita)
    

    Leaving aside the question of whether these count as new games, (1) this should be merged and (2) New n tasty was released for several platforms in 2015. And it wasn’t on the list last year.
    Pac-Man 256 (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    It is my opinion this game is not meaningfully different from Pac-Man 256 for Mobile, which was on last year’s list

    (Unless you want to say the coop mode CHANGES EVERYTHING, i guess)

    (It’s a good game btw go play it the mobile version is masterful)
    Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster (PC,PS3,PS4,X360,XBO)
    

    Is this a new game or a port
    Rise of the Tomb Raider (PC)
    Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (PS4)
    

    What happened here
    Sega 3D Classics Collection (3DS)
    

    Is this a new game
    Shadow Complex Remastered (PC,PS4,XBO)
    

    Is this a new game or a port
    Shantae and the Pirate's Curse (XBO)
    

    This is probably a port and not a new game
    Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (PC,PS4,PSVita,WiiU,XBO)
    

    I don’t have a suggestion for a change here but wow it sucks for this game it’s gonna come out on Dec. 20, idk if I’ll have a chance to play it before i vote *_*
    Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (3DS)
    Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (3DS)
    

    Something is wrong here
    Slain! (PC)
    Slain: Back from Hell (PS4,XBO)
    

    Are these two separate games. I’m not looking it up
    Sorcery! (PC)
    Sorcery! Part 3: The Seven Serpents (PC)
    

    What happened here. I’m not looking this up either
    Space Hulk: DeathPCg (PC)
    

    First off, this game is named “Space Hulk: Deathwing”. Second off wikipedia only seems mostly certain it’s slated for release this year. It says the release date is Dec 14 and the main release is on consoles next year. Are you sure this is coming out this year
    Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness[A] (PS4)
    Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness[B] (PS4)
    

    Merge this
    Star Trek OnPCe (PS4,XBO)
    

    What is this? There was a version of “Star Trek Online” released for PS4 and XB1 this year. Probably this counts as a new game but fix the name
    Stardew Valley (PC)
    Stardew Valley (PS4,XBO)
    

    Merge this
    Steins;Gate 0[A] (PC)
    Steins;Gate 0[B] (PS4,PSVita)

    I think you should consolidate “The Walking Dead: Michonne” into one game, on Steam it is sold as a “miniseries”

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown (PSVita)

    Yakuza 6[A] (PS4)

    I would think Hitman (2016) and its various episodes would be considered just 1 entry instead of the 3 or 4 I see right now (around 240ish on the list).

    Also, the OP says '2015' instead of '2016' for nomination rules.

    IIRC there was the rule about episodic games only being considered when all the episodes are out? But ultimately, it would depend on if it was on last year's vote. (Which yes, is unfair to games like rise of the tomb raider, which got a much wider release on PC and PS4 this year)

    Actually, what were the rules for submitting games from last year that missed the list? I remember there was a game that came out mid-december last year, that I missed nominating, but I really wanted to vote for. It was legitimately in my top 10.

    Also, would like to nominate:
    Satellite Reign (PC) 
    Orwell (PC)
    

    Also, what were the rules for early access again?

    Also also, was factorio on an earlier voting list, back when it was only available on the creator's site?

    Also ^3 it might be useful to have links to the previous year(s) threads in the OP

    The Sorcery! games are separate games, but I think 3 is the only new one this year. Other one already had a mobile release years ago.

    Looks like Sorcery! 3 also had a mobile release in 2015, so both of those should come off the list.

    Very much disagree.

    I am not bothering to look into this but I doubt five separate hitman games were released this year
    Hitman Go was a mobile game from 2014 that got ported to PC/console. Dunno if we counted mobile games towards GotY so maybe it's eligible since it's just now on actual consoles?
    The other Hitmans are part of the episodic game, the first bit of which came out last year. I don't know if we counted that towards last years GotY, if not, should be on this one.

    Not disputing this one, but man. I've never wanted to vote an expansion GOTY so much before. Legion was larger than most other games I played this year and it changed a ton of stuff in WoW for the better.

    Crap, I even looked Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 up but somehow forgot to remove it from my list. I'll edit it out now.

    My impression of Trackmania Turbo was that it was basically a re-release because TrackMania 2 flopped. So is it a proper sequel then?

    Edit: Removed both, at least for now. And I rechecked my list to make sure I didn't miss any others.

    One thing I did notice though, is that this should be changed from:
    Dreamfall Chapters: Book 5 — Redux (PC)
    to:
    Dreamfall Chapters

    Book 5 was the last episode, so the game is done now.

    Oh, hmm. I think you're correct? This is a difficult question as half the Trackmania games have been rehashes of previous games. It looks like they spruced up the three environments from TM2 and added a new environment, and it has nothing to do with ManiaPlanet, but ManiaPlanet is still a thing? This is confusing.

    Yeah I fucked up the replacement and rather than do it just on the platforms I did it on everything. "lin" and "win" got replaced with "pc". Didn't notice till after I'd posted the list :smile:

    Went through it but missed some.

    At least for next year I've got something that should automatically sort out most of the Wikipedia text and problems I've spotted this year.

    Remove all the 's from any listings

    I just noticed that this didn't show up as intended because of course it did, that's the bold tag. What I meant was remove all the
    [B]
    
    's from any listings.

    Edit: Oh and I found another Japanese game:
    Starly Girls: Episode Starsia[A] (Mobile)

    windowframe (PC)
    Words Must Die (PC)
    Wuppo (PC)
    Wrestling with Emotions (PC)
    
    Some of these nominations come with caveats! Ambient Mixtape 16, Experiment 26, and Triennale Game Collection are all compilations comprising works by multiple game developers, but I figured it would be simple to list each as its own entity. Also, Deep Freeze is technically a level for a mod of Knytt Stories, a game from 2007... but it's huge, stand-alone, and essentially uses the base game as an engine on which to build totally unique puzzle mechanics, so it would be sad to see it disqualified on "technically".

    I'd also like to suggest the following adjustments to existing entries:
    Gonner (PC) > GoNNER (PC)
    Islands (PC) > ISLANDS: Non-Places (Mobile,PC)
    Kathy Rain (PC) > Kathy Rain (Mobile,PC)
    Windlands (OculusRift) > Windlands (HTCVive,OculusRift,PC)

    Some discussion points:
    Great Detective Pikachu[A] - I wonder if this game will ever come out in the US. I guess it doesn't meet the rules for inclusion and probably won't have been widely played here. What's with all the [A]s in the list, anyway?
    Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes - this is currently on the list, and while some people have listed the VR version of this as their GOTY already, it seems to me like a port of a game that already had its chance last year.
    Pavilion - a second, concluding episode of this is apparently due out in 2017, and PS4 and PSVita ports are still scheduled for release. We could wait until next year to put it on the list, but my gut says it might as well stay.

    Second! But make that slither.io (Mobile,PC) as I mostly played this in a web browser!

    Kentucky Route Zero Act 4 (PC)
    You've done amazing work finding all those ports and rereleases @Unco-ordinated, but I'd like to suggest this one be restored. We had Kentucky Route Zero Act III on the list back in 2014 after some discussion, and with such a wait this time around it may best be treated more like a sequel.

    Thanks for doing this again, everyone!

    Really? Weird but I guess it makes sense. Alright, please add it back, @Mr_Grinch.

    And thanks for mentioning Chase: Cold Case Investigations, I didn't notice it was missing (though it might not make my list anyway, it was pretty disappointing compared to Hotel Dusk and Last Window).

    This year I've kept a ranked list of games and updated it as I complete them, mostly to make voting in this poll easier. Chase is currently at position 40, and will probably drop further as I rush to finish more games... so I doubt it stands a chance on my list either!

    @Unco-ordinated : A few of those MCC discussed in the first post.

    N++, Volume and Oddworld missed out on previous years. Should we keep them? Is the HD release of Oddworld actually a new game (I think we discussed this last year actually and we may have decided to remove it).

    I'm happy to go with whatever the consensus is. I'll get the rest removed in my lunch break and add the traditionally obscure list that only @sergiocornaga will vote for :smile:
