It also needs the site's overall top 10 for each year in list form.

Bumping this to see if someone wants to pick up the reins on this one. It would be a shame to see all this good work go to waste.

@chode-talker: Thanks for the catch! I've fixed it in the main post.

This has been a crazy year for me, so I've been doing a plain bad job keeping up with any personal projects... including ever getting around to filling out 2016's Guest Top Tens. Whoops. I'll see if I can't rally myself and get that hot mess updated soon™. Apologies to any duders who've been inconvenienced by their omission!

In the meantime, I'm going to at least try to update 2017's listing live (while I've got some off time) before it gets all huge and out-of-hand. You can see its skeleton already!

Cheers and Happy Holidays, Duders! We've all made it another year! Go us!

Just to update, I have in fact edited the main post to include all 2016 articles, and I've even got all of 2017's stuff cataloged! How uncharacteristically prompt of me!

I haven't had time to listen to all the GOTY 2017 stuff yet, so for once I'll be using my own thread to progress through everything. Here goes!

@superkenon: hey man, I noticed you were missing the 2008 top 10 lists, I’m on my IPad so I can’t make the links look fancy, but here they are.

@400lb_gorilla: Wow, thanks so much! I remember looking for these when I first made this list, back-whenever-ago, but they didn't turn up. I started to wonder if I merely imagined their existence entirely...!!

Added to the main post!

Bumping this for folks who, like me, love to wax nostalgic in a history of others' suffering.

Shoutout to @superkenon for having added 2017.

Wow! This is the first time I've seen this and I've been using this site for years! Totally helpful. Bookmarked. Thank you for your work, dude! Anyway, I'll take this opportunity to harp on about the site's redesign and that Game of the Year lists and features should be put in one separate tab on the upper bar(besides Words). They put a lot of effort in making these yearly so it's quite baffling to have to dig deeper than necessary to see their best work.

@redcream: @inevpatoria: Thanks, duders!

I managed to get off my butt and update the main post with the 2018 stuff. I haven't actually had time to watch almost any of this year's stuff yet, but it should all be there. I pretty much just went through the article/show lists and copied everything I saw that was GOTY-related. I saw a lot of guest lists I'm excited to read through!

Here's to 2019!

@superkenon Your 2016 Day Five audio link actually goes to Day Four! Great work on this, it's something I reference all the time.

@joshrholloway: Thank you! And thanks for the catch. That's fixed now! Glad this has been useful to you.

Going back and fixing that, I gotta give props to the site designers for not breaking any old links despite how much changed in the last big update. The earliest links in this thread were made in 2013, and going back to content in 2008. And it all still works! Huzzah!

Hey Duders! Any chance someone has already put in the time and effort to have timestamps for each podcast for when each category begins? Just curious as I would love to go back and hear the Best/Worst/Most Disappointing/Hottest Mess categories, but maybe not some of the more year/game specific categories, a la Best Overwatch Character. Thanks!
