The fact that the list doesn't contain Deep Rock Galactic should be considered a crime against humanity, punishable by death.

Ghost of Tsushima, one of the best open world games I have played in a long long time.

For me Yakuzza LaD is the GOTY. It's totally underrated. Hope we get new Title with Roundbase Fighting... It was soooo good.

Hades is just on a whole different level from anything I played last year. No chance in hell it will win, but it's my choice.

I see nobody in this thread has played Hades.

You all disgust me.
Lol I did. Could not get into it. I may try it again later but I put less than an hour into it and requested a refund from Steam. Dying and losing virtually all progress was not fun to me. I'm sure it's fun once you dig into it and "git gud" but I just don't have the desire to sink that kind of time and effort into it.

I have played it, still playing it and love it, really good, enjoyable game, spent 4-5 more time playing hades (much more enjoyable) than ghosts of Tsushima

My personal pick is TLOU 2, but Hades is a truly great game in its own right.
We are at total different ends of the gaming spectrum with out picks and I respect your voice too. I actually really enjoyed parts of TLOU2 and I can see why someone would choose it as their GOTY. It just ran a bit too long for me, but the gameplay was solid.

You don't really lose progress, though. Every time you play you can build up permanent upgrades that eventually make runs much easier.

Correct, but those upgrades take a while to stack up and quite frankly I wasn't into getting my shit wrecked until I could finally survive long enough to feel like I made real progress. :messenger_grinning_sweat:

TLOU2 got my vote. I wonder which game will win EE. I can assume TLOU2 is likely gonna win BAFTA, but nomination count is close. Europe appears very taken by TLOU2, judging by Golden Joysticks results.
