It's GoTY time, it's the ten year anniversary, so you know what that means:
How would you rank Giant Bomb's ten previous Game of the Year recipients?
A few ground rules: no we as a community aren't going to create a shared, compromised list of these ten games. This is just for your own subjective ten best, and as such no need to go hard on anyone for a list you disagree with. I just found it a fun mental exercise to be given these ten excellent games, and then try to sort out how I feel about them. Feel free to give as much or at little reasoning as you want. Also, this is not the place to air grievances about injustices of games that should have been in the top spot. (Though I am looking at you, 2011.) This is just for fun. If you ruin the fun, you'll be a fun-ruiner, and no one likes that person.
Here is the breakdown in case you're not familiar:
2008: Grand Theft Auto IV 2009: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
2010: Mass Effect 2
2011: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
2012: X-COM Enemy Unknown
2013: The Last of Us
2014: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
2015: Super Mario Maker
2017: Player Unknown's Battlegrounds
Will post my own personal rankings below. Have fun. Remember? FUN!
