Really good list overall. Also agree on Overcooked being really fun to play.

Nice list Drew! Nice to see Abzu on there. DOOM as No.1 really makes me want to go buy and play that game.

I like Drews taste, somehow it is something that most of the other GB Staff enjoys but its still suprising. Like with last year.

I really want to like DOOMs story, but the only thing I enjoy is Sam Hayden. Most of the time I love looking at the Snapmap stuff.

And a reviewer (but DOOM has a hand in everyone's reflections on that title).

Great list of games Drew. The Titanfall 2 write up was hilarious!

Man, Drew, every time GOTY Season comes around and you've got a list up, I'm reminded that you have some damn fine writing chops. A delight to read.

Hard to do better than Final Fantasy 6. Easily a high point in the series. It's weird that it's one of the least liked entries in Japan.

Man, this year unlike any other my list is way different than that of the staff. We normally have different tastes, but there is usual around a 40-50% overlap.

So weird to see The Witness charting so well with the GB staff. I feel like it was quickly forgotten when it came out around here. Good list though, Drew. Because of you I intend to make FFVI my first FF (although I'm going to play it on my phone probably).

I still find time for some twilight struggle I enjoy the charm and Cold War sensibility

I guess Motorsport Manager didn't stick.

I find this to be quite the unique list to it, with some games being on my own 2016 list. I like it.

I'm really glad Abzu made the list. I bought it after watching your quick look with Brad and I wasn't disappointed. I think I'm a more ideal audience for that game because I never played Journey.

Sweet list! You really should try Titanfall 2's multiplayer for at least a round or 2, it is excellent.

Excellent writing, Mr Scanlon!

Doomguy is a legit candidate for best character of the year.
