Hey fellow duders! After listening to this year's Game of the Year discussions I decided to make an infographic of all the winners since 2008. See below:

These are great. I assume the platforms are as of the date of the awards? Just a small note that I believe Ori and the Will of the Wisps was on Switch at the time.

@bigsocrates: Yep, you're right—I used the platforms based on the date of the awards. I will need to fix Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Thanks for the heads up!

Thank you for the kind words everyone! I'm glad you all like it!

Man, I forgot the Modern Warfare reboot was placed above Disco Elysium...

Regardless, you did really great work on this!

These are really nice! I was just listening to the Bombcast where they talked about whether Bastion was allowed to be in their GotY awards that year I was curious where it placed. Great timing!

@hargrimm: Ah, right. Didn't realize it was spelled the other way. I'm Canadian so I totally missed that. Will add that to my list of things to fix! Cheers.

@totalpatoot: Agreed! That's one of the reasons why I wanted to make it!

Thanks again everyone! I had a really fun time making it.

Cool overview! I feel like something like this should be officially available on the site. ;)

I had some weird Mandela effect thing where I thought MGS4 won GOTY in 08. GTA IV, well deserved winner.

This is a fantastic bit of work, and a great reference - thank you! Agree it should be kept as a permanent, updated/updatable page.

I've always thought these lists deserved something like this on the site. And now thanks to you, I couldn't possibly ask for a better way to see all this info in one place. Such fun to look back. Thanks!

Fantastic work!

This was an interesting way visually to see the difference in games, and types of games in the last decade.

2008-2013 was just nonstop magnificent games.

I'm not sure if its just me getting older or what but this last generation has been super disappointing. Not to say it hasnt had its amazing releases (Hello God of War) but I cant really think of more then a handful of games I'll be eagerly looking back on with the same enthusiasm and excitement as I do GTAIV, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed II/Brotherhood, Deadspace, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Sleeping Dogs, Portal 2, Arkham... man its just nonstop hits.
