Great thread. Makes me think I need to check out Subnautica and DQ11!

For me, my favorite has been Spiderman. It's simply a joy to play. There wasn't a single moment where I wasn't having a great time. Runners up are AC Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and God of War.

Top 2:

#1-Forza Horizon 4 - Most fun I've had all year, polished and most diverse game, and unanimously the best game in its genre of the entire generation.

#2-Monster Hunter World - Not most polished game ever, but drastically different than everything else there, seen nothing like it on consoles in generations, and since car games aren't allowed to win GotY, I'd pick this as top choice.

If I had to fill out a nominations, I'd add RDR2, SotTR, God of War, and Celeste.

Can I vote for Fortnite in 2018? If not, would a vote for COD Blops IIII be accepted? Because those are really the only two acceptable answers in my book... After those, it's Forza Horizon 4

Can I give it to Breath of the Wild again? :P

Probably Monster Hunter World, or the upcoming Smash Bros. Ultimate for me. Haven't played Dead Cells yet, that one might have a chance since it looks really cool.

I was just very dissapointed with the endgame content in MHW. It's such a tiny MH game if you compare it to the 3DS games that I'm used to. Had like 700 hours in MH4 and still wasn't done with it. I was 100% done with MHW after about 200 hours. And Capcom refuse to release the monsters that already exist on consoles, so there's nothing to go back to. They just released a monster and I don't give a shit, since I'll just defeat it 1 or 2 times and then I'm done with the game again for the next 6 months or so it'll take them to release the next monster. I'll never play the game again, unless they make a G-rank. And I'm pretty sure that wont happen.

Octopath Traveler or The Messenger. I enjoyed them both immensely. Dead Cells is up there too but I feel like I’m never gonna be able to beat it.

@goldenelementxl: Just curious - and I'm not being funny - but what reasons would you give for putting either of those games up for GOTY? Especially blops4?

Likely for me it'll be RDR2 taking the checkered flag with FH4 close behind riding it's rear bumper. :P

I guess technically it came out last year but its more complete this year so will go with it anyway. Fire Pro Wrestling World. Feels so good to finally have a good wrestling game after so long without one.

My fav. game of all time is Disgaea 1, so Disgaea 1 Complete has to be my GotY.

If remasters aren't allowed, I go with Octopath Traveller :)

Every second I spend playing a game that isn't Fortnite or BLOPS IIII feels like I'm wasting time that should be spent playing those games. That's why they're on my list

-Red Dead Redemption 2 by a country mile. It's so much to do and see that it's crazy. I looked up the other day and realized that I'd been playing dominoes for like 2 hours with Tilly lol

- Monster Hunter World. Also had a blast playing this game as well. Feels like you're in a real ecosystem and I love the combat mechanics as well. Everything feels super tight and responsive.

I haven't played any 2018 games :P but I did get to play a handful of games (old and new) that were brand new to me. My favorite was Resident Evil 7, with Stardew Valley being the runner up.

I've decided I don't care about launch status/1.0 launches. Fortnite is my GOTY 2018. FYI, PUBG was my GOTY 2017. My 2018 runner up... BLOPS IIII. #3 is Budget Cuts on PC/Vive. #4 is Forza Horizon 4 and #5 is Into The Breach

Havent played rdr2 yet but so far its God of War. The single player experience, combat, graphics are top notch. Its the first time ive played in a while that the side quest are not that repetitive.

RDR2 by a country mile. 50 year old friend of mine - who has never played video games to any extent - went out and bought an x1x and a copy, based on watching me play it for around an hour.

I think it should be GOD OF WAR or Monster Hunter World. Dragon Quest XI feels deserving too.

Dragon Quest 11 seems to be getting a lot of love.

That combat looks really boring though.

Crosscode.

I got done with it a couple days ago and can't recommend the game enough, especially if you're a fan of classic SNES RPGs like Chrono Trigger, Mario RPG, and Secret of Mana, but also it's got some serious puzzle solving so if you liked Link to the Past that fits in too. It's probably closer to LttP really, but if that game was a true, genuine action RPG.

Great music, charming pixel art, minimal bugs, lots of little attention to detail bits, RPG elements that are deceptively simple, interesting story with endearing characters and self-referential humor. The action combat is the most fun I've had with an ARPG since my first time through Dark Souls. And it offers a stiff challenge without feeling like bullshit, nearly every failure is your fault and you can always brute force by leveling or lower the difficulty. Plenty of content, around 25-30 hours if you rush through which is a good length for an ARPG, but you could easily double that time if you like to run completionist. Not flawless, there are some quirks, but then no game is perfect.

I feel like this game is a real diamond in the rough. This, They are Billions, and Subnautica really help the case for early access games this year, even as some other games in the category turn to shit or never actually launch.

God of War and RDR2 are probably the ones I put the most time in. If I were to choose, maybe God of War, simply because the combat feels so meaty and good (plus the addition of NG+ adds longevity). I don't see myself replaying RDR2 after I complete all the side missions and explore what I can. There's always something 'off' about the 3rd person shooting mechanics that Rockstar does, can't explain it.

However, Stellaris rec'd a massive update this year and it feels like a whole new game. They're coming out with totally reworked planet mechanics in a new update soon as well. I like games to keep on giving year after year and fine tune themselves.

Very tough decision but:

God of War

Runner ups:

Monster Hunter World

Spider-Man

Dragon Quest XI

I do not give a fair vote as I have not played:

Forza Horizon 4

Red Dead Redemption 2

Valkyria Chronicles 4

Yakuza Kiwami 2

@Renegade_Fury: Agreed regarding Yakuza Kiwami two, however I thought the story for part six was a massive let down and the clan creator was a massive slog. I'm looking forward to Judge eyes and I'm currently playing Fist of the north star.

So far that would be MHW for me since I haven't played RDR2 or GOW (which seem to be the games getting all the attention). I should get around to them soon.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey, phenomenal game, amazing open world, excellent skill system, excellent story and characters, no doubt this is considered a sacrilegious nomination since a) it's an Assassin's Creed game which means b) it comes from Ubisoft but it really is the best game I've played all year by some considerable margin.
