It sure as hell isn't the other two.

GoW has historically been low-key trash and other one's hardly a game.

They should have made it Smash vs GoW only. GoW would win.

Was going to make the same topic but I've said it before. It isn't game of the year by a long shot. This is why voting doesn't matter. People don't vote for what's best, they just vote for what/who they like.

"Best" is subjective, though.

Octopath Traveler wasn't even included in yesterday's poll, and I'd totally have voted for that oneknowing it would lose to the obvious fan favorites. I'm honestly not surprised that OT was left out, let alone that so many people are voting for the latest Smash.

You've been here long enough that you should know how this works by now. Octopath wasn't on yesterday's poll because it didn't win the Switch GotY poll.

Yeah, Smash wins the poll just by not being the other two awful options.

In any case, the 2018 GoTY was Radiant Historia; Perfect Chronology, but few even heard of it, sadly.

After that, probably an indie game like Dead Cells.

I don't normally go to the front page unless a specific poll is pointed out, so I'd have missed system polls. Likewise, had I known of the Switch one on the day it happened I would have added to that number and proceeded to change nothing, because Octopath isn't the popular thing that's out right now (eg., Smash).

God of War is not an interactive movie, interactive movies are like the following:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/383870/Firewatch/
https://store.steampowered.com/app/501300/What_Remains_of_Edith_Finch/

In God of War the combat is challenging, and there are a ton of game mechanics going on. Just because a game looks good, and has some cinematic moments doesn't mean its an interactive movie.

It's hilarious when people call games like God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 Interactive movies. If they are Interactive movies your precious Breath of the Wild is also.

It's such a minuscule thing that it's never worth bringing up.

Well, unless you're like TC and wanting to troll, I guess. But most people are normal and like things that they do enjoy and think are good.

This...

Also, when people vote for something, like the best game, theybusually vote for the game they think deserves it. Someone who didnt like RDR2 most likely wont vote for it to be the best game. As they wouldnt feel that way. It makes sense. People vote for the ones they like the most. Because they believe those to be better. Its makes perfect sense...

Well, overall. I mean certainly there are some rational people that can weigh the options versus those outside the realm of rational who barrel in without thought voting for the guy who takes picture of himself because he has nice hair.

No. Lit. who they like. Nothing to do with campaign promises or anything. As with Smash Bros., there is much more content in the other games. It really doesn't even come close to first. Just a larger portion of the voters are on Nintendo and that's all they got for a choice, really.

I think its because they like it. Having the most content doesnt automatically make something the best. Just like having the best graphics doesnt make it the best game. Its everything. People arent going to vote GoW the best if they hated it. The would vote something else. And if they dont like the genre, they probably also wont vote for games in their genre. People are going to vote the game they like for best game. And everyones opinions are different. In the end, its just a dumb poll, though...

But it depends on what you care about. Like I dont always care about realism. And SSBU has good graphics. They looked like what they were suppose to look like. Not every game needs character that look like real people. It had a story. Not the best, but enough. And lots of content. More than the other Smash games. Not to mention, more to come. Dont know what you mean by acting, though...

If you like it and think it should be game of the year, thats fine. But not everybodys going to agree. People will vote for the game they think should win. Which is usually whichever game was more fun for them.

If it makes you feel any better, Octopath managed 2nd place quite handily on that poll. It was miles behind Smash, of course (17%, compared to 57%), but it beat 3rd place (Pokemon) by almost threefold. That poll didn't even include MHGU, though, so I was slightly bitter (even if it did appear on the remake poll later).

That is surprisingly well for OT, considering the current hype train running with Smash.
