Every year TGA showcases what the GOTY nominees are ahead of the show and Reddit asked ifcould post a poll that allows Redditors to vote on their pick of the nominees. The results will be featured during the livestream of TGA this year.
Psychonauts 2 for me but judging by the amount of votes it's gotten not many people seem to agree 🙁ID: hn04ijf
Not enough people played Psychonauts 2, it’s an absolutely fantastic gameID: hn3bu0d
I haven’t played any of these gamesID: hnbif6e
Honestly, this vote just proves why it is a good idea to not have the game awards be 100% public vote. Games that were more mainstream and thus played by more people would just always have a giant advantage.
I'm not saying that RE8 couldn't be the best game of the year, though.
Anyone else not play a single one of these..? Just me? Okay...ID: hmq8gq1
It takes two was really good but not sure it’s goty good. I will try Metroid dread eventuallyID: hmye3uz
If I only had someone to play with :,(ID: hmt9n2w
It takes two had great gameplay but the story was so cheesy and poorly done.ID: hmslgsz
Me, I am in my 120th hour of Hades and its still worth every penny I paid.
The only 2021 game I played was the Echoes of the Eye DLC. Sweet jebus playing that made me feel like a child playing -spoiler- for the first time.ID: hmwjuvu
absolutely criminal that it can’t get nominated for GOTY tbhID: hmq57w1
Me too lol, I might get the first psychonauts soon.ID: hn4ubnl
It says so much about this sub that that the most upvotes comment is “I’ve not played a single game in the GOTY nominations”.
All whinging about the state of gaming. Zero actual playing good games.ID: hmqpjim
Didn’t play a lot of them. Played most of deathloop and it was good, wouldn’t call it GOTY good…. It takes two was good but my wife got bored pretty quick so that was that… Dread seems good so far but isn’t sucking me in, I’ve played more engaging non-metroid metroidvanias recently on the switch…
Would love to get into Village, and I have psychonauts queued up on gamepass, but overall sorta feels like this is one of those years like when Control won GOTY in 2019 - pretty awesome game, but sorta only won because something had to winID: hmyiv56
psychonauts and its not even closeID: hmyt710
Psychonauts 2 was phenomenal, please check it outID: hndog2x
TGA is just a marketing show. Just look at the laughable "RPG" section. That and that Demon's Souls remake wasn't in last years show and isn't in this years show should tell you everything you need to know.
I really like most of these games but really don't think any of them are GOTY worthyID: hmqnxjh
It’s like a recreational sports league, even if every team is mediocre, you gotta have a championID: hmrp82v
There were at least a few great games released this year though. Just not ones anyone at TGA would ever be willing to play.
This hasn’t been an amazing year for games really. There’s good things out there but it’s not been a knockout.
Returnal should be on this list though, and Forza.ID: hmx5z80
I though Resident Evil was great. They took the characters and first person perspective from 7 and made a way better game with it.
Little nightmares 2 not being nominated for game of the year is such bullshit.
I love Forza but GOTY is almost exclusively reserved for games with great narratives or groundbreaking mechanics. A racing game will never deliver either of those.ID: hmtblvy
You could say Racing games don't rev their engines.
I like RE8 but I really don’t see how it could be GOTY. No Lady Dimitrescu is not a valid enough reason.
Psychonauts 2 has my vote
The correct answer is Forza Horizon 5
Where is Forza?ID: hmx4ss2
Seriously! Game is getting robbed on all the GOTY lists
No one played psychonauts 2? The game is so good, beautiful graphics and also a very deep story about the human mind told in the silliest way possible. Every time a character speaks you will have a smile on you face.
Worth a try on gamepass
Didn't play any of these but metroid seems good
Wow, what a shitty year for gamingID: hmwlgaq
Next year is going to be awesome. Fromsoft, Techland returns (I really hope dl2 doesn't end up like Cyberpunk) And also Horizon, Breath of the wild 2 and God of war.ID: hn89mt7
A Plague Tale 2 is scheduled as well
Horizon 5 is my game of the year. It really sucks it didn't get considered. If it's up for next year it prob won't win because of games like God of War Ragnarok. It came out early enough. Not like game of the year is all that important but the Forza horizon franchise really doesn't get the world wide respect it deserves. It deserves more recognition.ID: hn2jlm3
I played a previous Forza (Horizon 2, I think) and it was... fine? It was a good racing game but it felt like just about any other racing game.
What makes 5 so amazing?
Tales of Arise deserves to be on this list.ID: hn3h6kk
Ehh. I loved the gameplay but the pacing got progressively worse the longer the game went on.
Psychonauts 2 by far, such an underrated gem.
But it’s actually Forza Horizon 5
I'd vote Returnal if it was listed.
Deathloop winning this year is going to leave people scratching their heads.ID: hmu3dl8
Arkane is my favorite development company. The dishonored series and Prey are just amazing. Deathloop was severely disappointing. Not only that, but I'm familiar with the game because I love that studio so much, but I have barely heard of in the community at large.
Dread or Psyco 2ID: hn3d137
I agree Dread was really good and it was my first Metroid game. I’m already in love with the series
I didn't play any of these 😀
Meanwhile the presumptive favorite to win (Deathloop) is in last place currently. Shows how different the consensus of the “experts” are from the fans.
(yeah, I know, but it should be there)
I can’t my game of the year isn’t on it (forza 5)
It was a tough choice between RE8 and a Rift Apart but ultimately I’d say RE8. It was one of the only games that I craved beating right after I beat it over and over till I unlocked the weapons I wanted. I never felt that urge to do that before.
Where's the option for Forza 5
All great games..but i chained 4x new game plus with RE VIII in a week end that thing was too good..
This list is sorely lacking in other great games.
