For me, it's Splatoon by a long :pottymouth:. I played it religiously for about 6 months straight, and after a brief hiatus, have picked it up again because it's just so much fun. And it evolves from a challenge level as new levels, weapons and players enter the fray. I've also participated in every Splatfest and intend to get some run in this Saturday's contest. This new IP for Nintendo hit the ball out of the park for sure!

I vote Undertale, definitely goty for me. It's refreshing to play such an original game in a year filled with remasters and ports. I was hesitant to play it at first because I thought it was just another one of those 8bit indie snob games but boy I was way off. The story and characters are charming/funny. I really enjoy how they merged the gameplay of a bullet hell in with a rpg, and it's really cool how you can spare enemies too which is a puzzle in it of itself. And MAN, the music is freakin' incredible! I haven't heard an OST as good as this in a long time.

I wish I had had more of a chance to play games that released this year but as new releases are transitioning more and more to the current gen consoles I just haven't had a chance to play much of the newer games making a splash these days. That will change for me soon but as for this year, the best (and practically only) new game I played was Life Is Strange so I have to give it my nomination. It was a really good episodic game in the vein of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones from Telltale Games and definitely worth a look.

My vote goes to Fallout 4. Such a deep open world RPG. Really enjoying my time with it. Easily my favourite game of the year :D

Splatoon, I had been going solely retro and this reintroduced me to "new".
