I haven't played many modern games, mostly because I don't own any of the new consoles, but I do know someone with a PS4 and the funnest game I played this year was the new DOOM. A triple A first person shooter with fast movement speed, no ridiculous tutorials and handholding, or long boring cutscenes? Yes please :D !

Wow, I'm just now realizing that the only game I've played that was actually released this year is Pokemon GO. While I like the concept, it just has some mechanics that really lost me as a player pretty quick. Can't bring myself to vote for it.

Man, I feel so old.

So I'm going to hold out for a few more days and possibly nominate Super Mario Run.... we'll see.

I give 3 games major consideration. Skyrim Special Edition, Uncharted 4, and Hitman.

Skyrim is a remaster of my favorite game of all time. Hitman has been a lot of fun, and has kept me in to it for a good while.


Uncharted 4 was epic though. It get's my vote :yeah:

I'm going with Star Fox Zero (Wii U). I really loved this game (but for the final boss). The visuals are stunning. The action is really great. I particularly like the arena battles where it's all about shooting down as many as quickly as possible. And the issues with the controls were really overblown IMHO, except for the final boss, which I still have not beat. There, I'm not too happy with the controls or level design . . . or my own gaming skills!

If Pokémon Go is a legitimate option, I will vote for that. I still have it open when I'm walking my dog. 104 Pokemon in my pokedex so still a lot of work to do. I think it's a great game if taken lightly. I think playing it too seriously to the point it took over peoples lives meant the drop out rate was extremely high. I have to say it's only my girlfriend and I who I know that still play it. As far as I am aware, everybody I know who used to, has also sacked it off. Geeks for life yo.

If not a valid vote, Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. Best football (soccer) game out there for sure. Done a real good job this year Konami.

I'm still playing Pokemon Go on my way to the train station every morning, and even with the massive dropout its a nice blast of freshness that NIantic are still keeping it up to date and constantly working on it :)

Guys, this is GOTY home console, so no, Pokemon GO! is not eligible for this award. The Staff is currently reviewing mobile games being eligible for GOTY handheld.
