As much as I praise PUBG for doing something astounding as an Early Access game, it should not be a GOTY contender at all. It isn't even officially released yet.

Everything else on this list is cool to me, though.

I know BOTW is gonna sweep most of if not all the categories it was placed in... but that doesn't mean I'm gonna try to change that with my vote... persona deserves some credit

Totally agree. PUBG is not GOTY worthy.

Audo, you can vote via Google Search. Just search for "The game awards Vote".
While true, it does require a google account sign in for it to actually count.

I voted for Horizon: Zero Dawn as GOTY
This was my pick.

FB isn't the only method, but some type of login is required for vote verification.

Voting for these kinds of things never really work because no way can every voter have played every game. I myself only played Zelda & Mario out of the GotY noms.

Though that said BotW wasn't just a great game, it also single handedly made the Switch the biggest runaway success story of the year. If Switch didn't have Zelda at launch, it may have been dead in the waters or at the least it wouldn't have had the momentum it has now. That's the real reason it should win GotY.

Nintendo is gonna own the awards this year... Well at least they should... They release Samus Returns, Zelda, and Mario all within 12 months....

In general it has been a good year for gaming.

well, since Best Independent Game has its own category, there's indie games involved at least like this...
I actually was curious enough to check the list with The Game Awards's goty winners till now and we got what is listed here.
Now that I look at it, as a whole, I am not sure we have the finest selections per year here... This isn't just public-vote based, right? There are some games as nominees that stink of "hey notice me, I somehow ended up here though I am not that good"... still business

I hope Automata wins a lot of awards, it was such an amazing game. Thou I am not sure if I would like more for Horizon or Nier to win in the best narrative category. Nier`s story was very fascinating and it`s twists were awesome, but the way how Horizon made everything connect and how it all made sense in the end was very well done.

I'm in disagreement with trending gamer and the esports representation as a whole was mostly terrible, but otherwise everything seemed pretty deserving. I wish Horizon would have gotten recognized for some of the stuff it did really well, but all of the winners in its categories definitely also deserved it as far as I can tell, so I can't really complain.

Gave zero fucks for the awards, but I got the one thing I watched the show for: Soul Calibur VI

The only games I’ve played that were nominated for GotY is Supah Mario O-dank-sea.
