I voted! I just realized I missed last year! I had been voting almost every year. Broke my record.

Games of the Year: 2020

1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Even I stopped playing in July, it was an addicting fun game. I had to buy two copies for my family. We competed over collecting stuff and shared islands. I never really developed my dream part of my island.
2. Persona 4 Golden
Steam Version: Boy, I forgot how difficult Persona is when doing a new save file for the first time. I never got to play the Golden version. Being an old game makes you admire how convenient Persona 5 was with their social link and monster collecting system.
3. Genshin Impact
Only played a little bit. My siblings are addicted to it. For a Chinese gacha game that blend Asian inspired lore and 'borrowed' Breath of the Wild's open world without good chemistry/physics mechanic and a bunch of other games, it's enjoyable.
4. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
I never expected the second Musou/Dynasty Warriors game of Zelda to be great. While the first game was fan service, the second game is surprisingly different. It's all Breath of the Wild and it's canon story. Without spoilers, it's crazy how this game drastically changed the Breath of the Wild mythos. I was expecting PTSD and such. Zelda has an amazing evolution in both Breath of the Wild and this Musou game.
5. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4
I like Musou games. Been a fan of One Piece Warriors since the first one. The 4th one is the easiest game to complete the achievements. It's the only one because it didn't require 100% coin collection. Gameplay wise - I think #3 had easier controls for me.

I missed the text editor in Giant Bomb. Don't have to do HTML or BBCODE. It's all automated. Reminds me of old Anime Vice. It's so much easier making tables using the list functions.

Here's my list. I didn't play much. Thank you!

If it's a game I really want, then I buy it full price as long as I got the money for it.

Back during college, I had no job so I ended buying most games used. I wasn't play any current games. I had the PS2 and PS2 post 2010's.

@dochaus

That is an interesting way to break ties

[Quote]As before, votes were tallied based on weighted value, and then unweighted value as a tiebreaker. If the results were still tied, then the two shows shared the ranking, as you'll see below..[/quote]

Not sure if I can fully utilize it because of lower voter turn out in AV.

Not a lot of folks talk about the anime industry and pick significant events. Really appreciate seeing that, it is pretty informative. business and the workforce really affects a lot of things

I forgot you use trailers

Definitely a time saving thing. Menos makes bannners. Well, I do try to make some every year to lessen the workload on him.

Didn't expect Hinamatsuri. It might be due to the father themes and comedy. Giant Bomb loves God of War, Last of Us, Clementine. GB has a lot of older males compared to AV. That is just an assumption.

The only same placement is Devilman Crybaby in 3r place. That title stands out despite its rushed 10 episodes

Odd to see Dragon Ball Z Kai and not Dragon Ball Super. Oh wait Super is there. 2 entries not 2018

Excellent write up Dochaus

I get the feeling of retiring. The newer, young un need to step up.

@zomgfruitbunnies:

I don't have a list. Nice list. I might as well try to dump something. Netflix only had 3 good anime series: Aggretsuko, Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan and Devilman Crybaby not including Castlevania since that isn't an anime. Oddly enough, Aggretsuko and Devilman Crybaby are the only ones that didn't have TV broadcast which is good since that was part of Netflix's anime simulcast problems. Netflix tends to be late with their anime simulcasts in past years.

Crunchyroll and FUNimation partnership ended in 2018 due to Sony buying up FUNimation. Fans were split. For me, it means I have to get 2 subscriptions to watch my anime as I only watch subs.

Amazon's Anime Strike ended. Good god it did.

IN terms of simulcasting, Crunchyroll and FUNimation were top guns. HIDIVE maybe small - I feel it might suffer the same fate as Daisuki, antother small streaming site

I have nt heard anything about Viewster, Wakanim, r the other simulcast sites.

I voted. I took too long. Usually I try to vote before everyone else especially before sending confirmation pms.

This year in anime was weak for me since I do prefer action, fantasy, sci-fi over slice of life

This year's slice of Life shows had me loving it.

Hinamatsuri

Cells at Work

Aggretsuko

Asobi Asobase

Wotakoi

School Babysitters

How to keep a Mummy

Hi Score Girl

The show before the long cour shows of Fall 2018

Megalo Box started off good but I hated how it ended

Persona 5 - I love the game. The adaptation could have been better. It is the only anime series that I get attached to the source material. I usually ignore the source material and never compare it to the anime adaptation. Most of the time, it is easy because I don't read manga due to legal access.

Devilman Crybaby - it was a bit too much

Attack on Titan - wasn't as intense. Had few good moments than bad ones

Darling in the Franxx - had a good concept but its 2nd part crash due to being pretentious and it can't shake off of being compared to better mecha shows. It has the feeling of being a copycat

It would be too early to vote Karakuri Circus, JoJo, Fairy Tail, Alicization, or A Certain Magical Index since they are more 24 episodes

I won't vote for them until next year. They should have started in Winter, early year or Spring otherwise people tend to vote for good recent anime and really memorable ones prior. It will be hard to remember just good anime if it didn't hold a lasting impression.

The best action ones for me was My Hero Academia and Golden Kamuy.

@dochaus:

Sorry Partner, I didn't hype or comment enough. Was busy and shit exploded in the Anime Vice battle forum just before New Year's Day. Can't really relax and enjoy the holidays with our debaters going at each ther's throat.

I didn't know you had the poll open this long. Some of my mod teammates told me to open the poll earlier. Might be a good idea to open it earlier and close it even later. I hope the turn out was good.

Comparatively to last year I probably watched too few anime period. I'm just voting for this

The Night is Short, Walk on Girl

I don't add movies to the anime Gdocs. It's anime TV series. The only movie exception is Digimon Adventure Tri since it's a series of movies and it was legally stream on Crunchyroll, making it easier for public access compared to most movies release in Japan, you won't see them simulcast nor being released theatrically or home release in the west.

Here's my list. Thanks in advance, ZB I kind of rushed blurbs. I didn't reach 10 games for this year, but I feel this year, I had played a lot of new games within a year of their release compared to past years. Maybe I had more time to play games or there were more games that were my cup of tea this year? It was a strange year for me.

Hope everyone who watches anime, come and vote at the GB Anime Duders anime poll of 2017
