2021: It had games! It's time to vote on your favorites! You can do so via this form, or you can read on for more information!
If you're curious to revisit the days of yore, have a link to our our 2020 GOTY, 2019 GOTY, 2018 GOTY, 2017 GOTY, our 2016 GOTY, or our 2015 GOTY lists! Congrats to Hades for being our Community GOTY winner for 2020! What will it be this year? Deathloop? Halo? Psychonauts 2? Let's find out...together!
When does voting end? Let's go ahead and say January 28th and I will try to get the collated list together by the end of the month!
Can I change my votes later after I play more stuff? Sure, up until voting ends! Just clear out your choices and select new ones, then hit Submit again.
I haven't played ten games this year; can I still vote? Sure, just vote for whatever your favorite games were. You can just vote for one game, if you want.
How does this work? This is a weighted-voting system, so your first-place game will be weighted more heavily than your tenth-place game when we tally up the votes in the end. We'll also include pure voting results without weights for the data nerds.
I can't find my favorite game in here! Our search system is very special and might not always return the expected results. Some games might have older-than-expected release years in the search, or may not appear at all. Let us know in the bug reporting forum if you can't find something!
Hah, I'm going to vote for ET on Atari ten times, suckers! Feel free! You can add any games you want to your list. We're mostly focused on American release dates here; Jeff will ultimately decide on any edge cases. (If something came out of Early Access in 2021, feel free to include it as well. Honestly, feel free to throw anything on your list and we'll figure it out later!)
If you have any issues finding a game in the search box, please let us know via this thread in Bug Reporting.
Thanks, I love you.
