This is PUBG;

Messy, delightful and probably could be better cooked, but it feels so good to eat and savor every time you can have one

Are we SURE this game is GOOD?

I don't want a BAD game to win GOTY

Cos if a BAD game wins GOTY and it's multiplayer then it means there will b less GOOD singleplayer games like UNCHARTED but more BAD multiplayer games like PUBG.

If BAD multiplayer games will be the future of GAMES then i will QUIT gaming.

Battle Royale game with people running around trying to survive. It fills a niche that was not really explored before.

With the rate it is expanding, It's like we are nowhere near the top of the curve yet.

Not a new meme per se, just poking fun at people who fret about the idea of a multiplayer only game doing well and potentially winning awards.

Community is pretty much the section for older stuff, and yeah, various communities. PUBG hasn't released yet and doesn't have an OT.

Since when was GOTY based on sales?

I cant wait for it to come to XBox one but it doesnt even look like a GOTY type game, maybe multiplayer GOTY

If PUBG leaves Early Access this year, it will land in 4th or 5th place on GAF's GotY list. Possibly lower, but I doubt it.

If PUBG doesn't leave Early Access this year, it's not landing anywhere.

As much as I like PUBG, it does a lot wrong that I think big publishers will try to take advantage of as well.

I am also not a fan of people wanting to Crown An Early Access game.

PUBG is GOTY imo and the first genuinely revolutionary game this industry has seen since, I dunno, Minecraft? Can't believe some people are still downplaying it.

And I hope its success puts the exclusion of Early Access games from awards to rest once and for all.

The best game released that year.

A game can be addictive and social without being "great", so to speak.

Movin' dem goal posts all day long

The reality is that GAF picks a Japanese game as their GotY every year, except for the years they don't. 2 of the last 6 GotY winners (every year from this decade) are Japanese titles.
