Hey everyone! These are the results of the community GOTY - the results of which (resultingly) have been resulted below. This year, 1655 of you submitted a top ten list, for a total of 12670 votes (not everyone always puts in ten games, which is fine!) on 807 different games. Wow! Amazing!
This is one of the tightest Community GOTY votes I've ever seen, with the top eight games all being closer together in weighted and regular votes than the top two games were last year, when Hades easily took the top prize over The Last Of Us Part II. It was certainly one of the more bizarre years for game releases in recent memory, with the full weight of quarantine development pushing many games out into 2022. There were fewer voters this year than last which might account for the relative closeness of the race, but I also know that I, personally, had a hard time making a Top 10 this year just because the big splashy AAA games that I like were relatively sparse on the ground. Regardless, congrats to Inscryption for being the game you felt the most strongly about, and big ups to Halo: Infinite for being the game actually played by the largest group of Bombadeers. I played one of those games!
It's kind of fitting that we're publishing this on the day that Dying Light 2 comes out; I dunno if it'll be great, but it definitely feels like one of the first huge (and long-delayed) releases of the year to me. I'll probably not be able to resist buying it this weekend! Anyway, since we have this community polling system that we only use once a year, I figured I'd throw up a poll to see your Most Anticipated Games of 2022. Vote early and vote often!
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.
