I think I know where these votes are going with the year Nintendo had (3D World won 2013?), so Cuphead gets my courtesy vote. :coffee:

Toss in another vote for Super Mario Oddysey! The game blew my highest expectations out of the water and gave me possibly my favorite 3D style Mario game to date (debating between this one and Galaxy).

I have to go with Breath of the Wild too. The amount of freedom to move about the Great Plateau is amazing.

Though i’m no Zelda fan, I can’t deny how influential BotW has been this year in gaming. It almost singlehandedly brought Nintendo out of a dark age.
It must be exciting to never have played a Zelda game before - No64DD
