Community Game Of The Year 2017 Voting Results

What did you decide were the best games of 2017? Read on to find out!


Hey everyone, it's that time of the year again! A good 5,563 of you decided to submit your top ten lists for Community GOTY voting this year, for a total of 46823 votes (not everyone put in ten games, and that's alright!) on 1008 different games.

Everyone seems to like Zelda a bunch! It was the #2 game on the Editor's list, but manages to take the #1 spot on both of the Community lists. (The two lists are separated by weighted voting, in which a #1 spot would be weighted more heavily than a #2 vote, and a list of pure votes without any weighting!)

Most of the games below should be pretty self-explanatory; games that were released in earlier years in other countries but hit the U.S. in 2017 were valid. A lot of people liked the most recent expansion for XCOM 2, which is why you might see it on the lists below as well.

What a year for games! Thanks to everyone who voted this year, and let's hope 2018 is as good a year for games as 2017 was.

Weighted list! (1st place votes count more than 2nd place, and so on)
