So my three picks are Uncharted 4, Watch Dogs 2, and DOOM. I would also like to give a special shout out to Ratchet & Clank as well.

It's between Uncharted 4, Dark Souls 3, and Doom for me. It's hard for me to make a definitive choice because of each of the games flaws. Uncharted 4 is only amazing if you played all the other games, Dark Souls 3 to me felt like a lot of fan service rather than expanding the gameplay or area variety, and Doom for me felt a bit too long. It might be that I'm constantly dying on nightmare, but how many times did I have to go back to hell before it wrapped up? Anyways, don't wanna sound too negative, as these games positives really outweigh the negatives.

My game of the year Fire Emblem wasn't nominated so I will skip voting but of the ones nominated I would have to go Overwatch.

I voted for Uncharted 4, DOOM, and Ratchet & Clank. The only other two games from 2016 I completed, TItanfall 2 and Inside, were average and underwhelming, respecitively, personally.

Well... Final Fantasy XV managed to swiftly take the top spot away from Uncharted 4, something I thought no game would manage to do this year, so... That's how this went.

I highly doubt the vote will go that way, tho. :kinda

There were a TON of deserving games this year, so we couldn't get everything on the list. That's why we have the write-in option. portilloKevin

Mine changes between Stardew Valley and DS3. I wish at the time I rented Doom that I wasn't so busy because I hear a lot of good things about it. Hopefully I'll get to really sink my teeth into it.

I understand that not ever game will make the list of nominees, and i know my game choice isn't mainstream which is fine. No wiorries on any of that =) though I could make a hell of an argument that FE is better than some on the list it isn't my list, which is fine too. Also I went to try out the vote and didn't see an option for write in. Now, I am not the smartest or close so it could be my idioticy but when I checked didn't see it, so I will abstain from voting respectfully.

The Witness and Uncharted 4 are the two standouts. Both excellent for completely different reasons but no other games really came close for me and the other games on the list aren't too shabby.

Sadly, I'm always about a year behind in playing my games. I played two games on this list, and only completed one of them. I got the platinum for Uncharted 4. I also played Pokemon Sun until my team was mid 30's, then got busy and haven't returned.

My top 3 if I could choose all games was Titanfall 2, Uncharted 4, and Hitman, but two of those weren't on there, so I just went for Uncharted 4, Battlefield 1, and Watch Dogs 2. All great games.

Really it's between Uncharted 4 and FFXV for me. In the end though I choose U4 just because of what that series mean to me and that it ended perfectly. FFXV did have it's plot issues which is important to me, but still enjoyed it regardless. Picked Overwatch as my third.

Well two of my top 5 were represented (Uncharted 4 and Ratchet & Clank), so they got my votes. The other 3 that rounded out my list were:

Quantum Break
The Last Guardian
Telltale's Batman

So shoutout to those. So many great games in 2016. Looking forward to Horizon, Ghost Recon, Mass Effect and Destiny 2 this year!!

Wow... Only 1 game in the list of Nominees made it into my Top 3, and it was Third.

3: Uncharted 4
2: Gears of War 4
1: Tyranny

I don't feel comfortable voting for Uncharted - or any other game on that list to be honest, because they just aren't GotY worthy to me :( I think I have to abstain.

My game of the year is Overwatch.

One of my favorite games growing up was Unreal Tournament 2004. I loved that fast paced arena combat with different game modes to operate in. I've been craving for a game like that for a while now. After completing the first game of Overwatch in beta, I felt like I was able to find that gameplay experience. Each character brought a unique playstyle that has kept me playing for hours. A game that makes me want to keep playing for hours and hours on end earns my game of the year.


Honorable mentions:
Pokemon Sun/Moon
Watch Dogs 2
The Witness
