For me, it has to be the Bioshock trilogy. I was just stunned by the shocking moments in the series.

A couple of heavy hitters: Chrono Trigger by making a time travel game have epic story telling, Mass Effect 2 by the side quest system with your crew, Final Fantasy 6 for the risky halfway point.

Some overlooked games: To the Moon, Night in the Woods, Firewatch, What Remains of Edith Finch.

@joedangerous@fatalbanana: My favorite track from 2018 is probably Confronting Myself from Celeste, just by what you are going through in the game while it's playing.

@fatalbanana: oh I agree with you there, 100%. Unless there's a game that I didn't play with some out of this world soundtrack, like Octopath or something. But I'll be so mad if they put something like RDR2 over Celeste.

In the reviews page, all reviews done by any of the staff members are showing "by Brad Shoemaker".

@monetarydread: Only Jeff, Jason and Dan played MHW like you're saying, all the others tried and didn't stick to it. I think it'll be around 7th-9th.

About Spider-Man, the reviewer (Ben) gave it 4 stars because it had some problems, Brad and Jeff didn't like it enough to finish it. Dan hated the character dialogue because it was goofy, my prediction is that Spider-Man doesn't make the top 10.

About another games being loved: Only Jeff didn't cared that much for GoW, all the east crew loved that game, some of the guys (Vinny, Dan and Ben) even did a Spoilercast about it, I've never saw a spoilercast be done by this guys. Dead Cells, at some point, the question on the podcast was: "What games have you been playing" and Ben said "There's only one man, and that's Dead Cells" going on to say he had hit the 35 hour mark and Brad responded with: "I'm ready to call it one of the very best 2D Action-Platformers of all-time" and Ben said: "Me too". Jeff always thought Dead Cells was fantastic and Jason gave it his 2017 GOTY in Early Access. Tetris Effect is liked by everyone also, Abby and Alex are kind of not as hot on it, but the West crew and Dan are playing it everyday for hours and hours. Other games I think are more loved then Spider-Man: Black Ops 4, Dragon Ball and Hitman 2.

My questions going into this years deliberations are: What are Vinny's top 3 Games? I have no idea. Does Jason likes MHW or Dead Cells more? How much will the "more of the same" argument stop Tetrist Effect and Hitman 2? It's the most excited I've been for a GOTY discussion since I've been following the site.

@superharman: I think Vinny does that very well. I always come to GOTY deliberations not knowing what to expect from him, and he's always so great at balancing the fight for his game with understanding what others love even if he doesn't.

I think for Jeff this year it might be Black Ops 4 at number 1, I would bet it makes the top 5 of the site.

@acharlie1377: I think Celeste and Black Ops 4 make the top 6 for sure, and Monster Hunter World is a lock for top 10, around the bottom. Jason won't let that slip.

@ares42: Black Ops 4, Dead Cells and Celeste will probably be Jeff's top 3 games. Based on what he said on the podcast during all this year.

@monetarydread: That's interesting, I disagree with almost everything you said. Spider-Man winning GOTY and MHW making top 3, both have a 0% chance of happening in my opinion. God of War making top 5 is 100% guarantee, and I agree with the Brad part, about the best music. But let's wait and see
