There's so much hate for Nintendo in the YouTube comments.

As bad as they are now, Nintendo dominated GOTY most years

Very unfair awarded some years, i had the impression that only RPG games mostly won't it in the past decade...

HL2 didn't even deserve goty, it was so bland and overrated, the story was the only good thing about it the first time around, after that it's boring.

In hindsight, Dark souls should have been 2011 game of the year. Dishonored, Hotline Miami or Sleeping dogs should have won 2012.

@bfa1509: "Dishonored, Hotline Miami or Sleeping dogs should have won 2012."

A perfect reason why all the commenter comments regarding Top X lists must be invalidated. 3 games that have wildly fluctuating opinions. Granted, Journey isnt the most conventional GOTY on this list, but neither would Hotline be.

@spinierblaked: i truly don't understand the witcher 3 like praise horizon gets. i personally loved it and thought it was well done. solid 8.5

@wrngsurgeon: And I don't understand the Witcher 3 like praise BoTW gets. It's nothing I haven't seen before. Solid 7. But you know what they say about opinions and assholes.

@spinierblaked: Yeah.... It's not. It might be the best game "you" played. But it's not the best game this year, and it wouldn't be the best game of any other year, either.

Stopped watching when Grim Fandango beat Half-Life in 1998.

@mattsaroni24: Should have tapped out when Final Fantasy VII didn't win the year before.

They were still doing only PC games at that time, I'm pretty sure.
