Nioh, CupHead, Forza 7, and Halo Wars 2 are all also available on PC.
PUBG is not presently a multiplatform release.

What the fuck was the criteria you guys used for deciding if something was or wasn't an exclusive? XD

Edit:
If the criteria was "console" exclusive why then is Nier or Hellblade listed as a multi-platform game? There's no consistency in where things have been placed.

Wow. Assassins Creed 2017, Middle Earth Lootbox, Nier Panty Shot, and Destiny 2 all got nominated over RUINER. Way too many people are sleeping on this game.

They're not consistent because Xbox would have no exclusives if they were.

assuming we talk ''Console'' exclusives:

Replace Uncharted with Nier
Put Hellblade in the PS4 section
Put PUBG in the PC section (not out on Xbox yet)

vote Zelda

Kinda Funny Forum Game of the Year 2017 - Voting begins December 4th

Nov 29, '17, 8:21am

Well I'm gonna have to say that Prey is my GOTY. Final answer. I just had a blast in that world.

Resident Evil 7 was a very close contender. I can't believe I'm even saying that about a horror game, but I am.

And I've got to give a shoutout to The Surge. Definitely the game that surprised me the most.


I'll be back next week to vote. ThisIsFine

I understand that from the Xbox side of things, but listing Nioh as an exclusive when it is available on PS4 and PC, like Nier and Hellblade which are both listed as multi plats is the one that is really breaking my fucking brain. WutFace

We decided that "Xbox Anywhere" games would count as Xbox games, otherwise, as RL said, Xbox wouldn't have a category. Don't blame us, blame Microsoft's weird policies.

I genuinely had no clue for Nioh though. I'll rectify that. It will throw the numbers off a little, but your brain can rest easy. portilloTrueLove

Those were all getting lots of love from lots of people, despite their controversies. I've never heard of RUINER, but that's what the write-ins are for! portilloKevin

This list is all jacked up. What definition of exclusive are you using? How in the world is Cuphead an exclusive when it’s on Steam? How is Nioh a PS4 exclusive? Can you guys share how you came up with your definition? Because you could add Nier: Automata and Hellblade under the current classification of exclusive. Also, how are Divinity OS2 and Hallow Knight PC exclusives? Haven’t those already been announced for other platforms?

I don’t mean to sound salty about this at all but this broadened definition of “exclusive” drives me crazy. Nioh isn’t exclusive, Nier isn’t exclusive, Cuphead isn’t exclusive. Just because something is funded by a platform doesn’t mean it’s an exclusive.

The award should be “best Xbox funded game” then Cuphead can be categorized correctly, because something on 3 platforms is not an exclusive. Same goes for Nioh and Sony.

Alright. I updated the categories and OP. Nioh was moved to multiplatform games, and replaced with Gravity Rush 2 for PS4 (it just missed getting nominated initially, so it works out). The Xbox exclusives are also appropriately labeled as "Xbox Anywhere" games, otherwise Xbox wouldn't have a category.

Thanks for changing it. It’s slightly better now.

Microsoft games that were released on Xbox and Windows 10 were only being counted as Xbox because as RL said, Xbox wouldn't have any exclusives otherwise.

No. Technically it hasn't even been released on PC yet as it is still in early access.

I'm only half-joking. RUINER is legitimately my GOTY. PortyDumb

Horizon is my GOTY, hands down. Nothing else really comes close, other than Mario and Persona 5, really (haven't touched Nier yet, tho).

That I believe. The idea that a game like Ruiner would make enough noise in the same space as all of those AAA games, that I didn't take seriously.

I think you had a typo here, and mixed up the letters. I'll fix it for you.

I voted Horizon since it hit all the marks better than the other candidates on the voting board (even though I was torn to also vote for P5 too, but didn't feel right voting for that having not beaten it yet).

As for a game I think is of similar quality that could have been a GOTY potential, I honestly would put Nioh into the mix too. I know it wasn't perfect, but man it was a ton of fun with so much content. Plus, surprisingly, it had a pretty solid story that I liked alot, with a fantastic OST, is gorgeous, and has some damn fun boss encounters and events that occur. Plus, Kodama are just downright cute.
