Community GOTY 2019 Winners

All the numbers are here!

Congratulations, Director.
Congratulations, Director.

Hey everyone! These are the results of last year's Community GOTY voting results - the results of which (resultingly) have been resulted below. This year, 3462 of you submitted a top ten list, for a total of 27791 (not everyone always puts in ten games, which is fine) on 828 different games.

(You'll note that these numbers are somewhat smaller than last year - unfortunately I think I did a poor job of promoting the links to the voting story during GOTY. That's my bad and I'll try to be better about it next year! If you missed your opportunity to vote, my apologies!)

Even so, it's interesting to see that (adapted for percentage of voters from this year to last), the votes were spread out across more games in the top ten of these lists. Last year, God of War and Red Dead Redemption II were the clear winners in the weighted poll, and while Control is still well above the other games this year, we're not seeing a situation where last year's #1 game got twice as many weighted votes as the #3 game did. So it seems like there was fewer consensus picks for "best games of the year," which hopefully meant that it was a great year for games!

As per usual, we don't always separate out expansions or new ports in our wiki so if you see stuff like Dragon Quest XI or Destiny 2 you can assume that it's referring to a recent release. Now, if you'll excuse me, I should really get back to Sekiro.

Still surprised how many people loved Control but didn't care for Quantum Break. That game was so fun, with combat design that got you to make the most of each of your powers. And a fun, twisty time travel story. I feel like it's worth revisiting since we've had some distance from the initial release where people complained about cheesy TV stuff.

Anyway, enough complaining, Control rules!

I don't think I ever gave it a whirl but if it's Control-esque maybe I'll check it out!

@csl316: I don't think the problem was it being too cheesy, I think the problem was that it shoved it front-and-center. In all other Remedy games, the live-action cheese was off to the side, usually playing on a TV, but in Quantum Break, it was not just unskippable cutscenes, but it was tied to the gameplay as well.

I also don't think they did themselves any favors with the branching paths because, unless done VERY carefully, your choices either don't matter, or there can be no core characterizations because they have to allow for the choices to be made. Whereas in Control, Jesse Faden is a strongly written, developed character as is everyone she interacts with. Even Jeff, after his first look at Control, was bowled over by how strongly Jesse came through as a character

I would assume some people didn't know which one to search for. There's going to be some weirdness further down on these lists!

Hell yeah! Glad to see Death Stranding get it's GB recognition. Though I can only imagine what it would feel like forcing myself to beat it in that tiny pre-release window like the team did. I think that game is best when it has time to breathe.

I absolutely love that game but thinking about playing all 60 hours condensed down into a handful of days sounds truly miserable.

No games of 2019 grabbed me all that much, but this must be the first year in like ... 6 or 7 years where almost every game I voted for ended up somewhere on the community GOTY list.

The only ones that didn't make the cut seem to have been Civilization VI: Gathering Storm, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, Warsaw and Unity of Command II, but Gathering Storm was the only one of those I really felt strongly about (and was my #1 pick), all the other ones were pretty deeply flawed but did stuff I really appreciated.

@undeadpool: The thing is.. I really liked the TV show stuff. So I had no problem with the breaks in between chapters since they were enjoyable.

I only played it once so I don't know the extent of changes between choices, but my playthrough and my interaction with those choices was satisfying.

I was intending to see which games were rated highest only amongst people who included it in their list... I guess this means a lot of people probably submitted a list containing only Shadowbringers.

cool to see Age of empires make the list. That truly looks like a labor of love and a celebration of a PC classic. Only makes Blizzard effort look that much worse in comparison.

@csl316: I absolutely love Remedy's weird, off-beat stuff, but you're asking why people like Control so much more, and...there we go. Imagine if Alan Wake had an entire concert of that nordic metal band's music, if you like that music, that'd be great! But if you don't...well...

Control, to my mind, struck a perfect balance of what I personally love about Remedy games, but it also gave the player a lot of freedom to get as in-depth, or gloss over, whatever they felt like.

Really wish the crew would do more with these results, it makes this whole thing feel a bit underwhelming. Maybe a stream where they play games on this list that no one on the crew has played yet. Or something like that.

Anyway, I'm glad Disco got the appreciation it deserves!

No Streets of Rogue on the list. No Descenders. No Fantasy Strike. Not surprising, considering GB covered them poorly or barely covered them, but you folks are missing out on lots of great games that GB staff didn't care for.

Thanks for this Rorie!

The two missing from my list are Dangerous Driving and Wilmot's Warehouse. Not surprised by the former but a wee bit surprised the latter didn't sneak in. It seems like a lot of people liked it but maybe just not enough to make their top 10, I'd guess.

I am delighted that 51 other people valued Shenmue III - hopefully, like me, unironically! Nice to see Kind Words sneak in as well as Neo Cab in the pure vote list. Also Outer Wilds and The Outer Worlds almost had the same amount of votes as each other which is perhaps the most fitting thing across these lists.

It sounds like this has been a bit of a tough one for Rorie to compile this year but I'm wondering if it would be possible to get the Top 500 list on a blog like last year? Only if it's not a lot of extra work, of course!

Bummed to see Remnant From The Ashes so far down the list and below Borderlands 3!!! Loved that game!

No complaints with Control winning though. A real return to form for Remedy. Great work Rorie.

I'm so glad Devil May Cry 5 at least cracked the top 20. Everyone on the podcasts kept saying "it was kind of a weak year for games," and sorta dismissing it, when it's the best action game in years. Control taking #1 is awesome as well.

Really wish the crew would do more with these results, it makes this whole thing feel a bit underwhelming. Maybe a stream where they play games on this list that no one on the crew has played yet. Or something like that.

Anyway, I'm glad Disco got the appreciation it deserves!

Absolutely on-the-mark suggestion, avioto! Producers take note.

@xkkzz: My takeaway from this weighted list is that Shadowbringers was the true Game of the Year, but not enough people played it.

@xkkzz: Makes sense, FFXIV requires a massive time commitment before you get to the Shadowbringers content. Control was the only game that released after Shadowbringers that I was able to fit in.

Shout out to my 31 fellow MLB The Show fans. I did think this year was really great.

I've played Diamond Dynasty pretty religiously the past four years and this was the first year I felt like they found the perfect balance between all their different systems. It was the first year I completed a live series collection. It was also the first year I set the game down not because I bundled up too many other games to play over the year or got bored, but because I felt done.

For something ostensibly designed around being a live service and incentivizing the expense of real world money, San Diego Studios have always seemed to acknowledge they don't have to prey on people to get what they want out of that system. That alone was enough for me to justify putting this year's The Show somewhere in my Top 5, I can't remember where. A lot of it was obviously the same as previous years, in some cases even worse, but they got that one mode so damn right from a purely consumer perspective that it deserves huge applause IMO.

Damn, I guess I'm getting really burnt out on gaming, the only game I finished (and really played) on that list is Sekiro. Finished few from my backlog and played a decent amount of Overwatch, but to be honest, not really interested in most of those games.
