Had a somewhat fun idea for a tier list:
https://tiermaker.com/create/tga-game-of-the-year-nominees-11379

Here, you can rank all the games that were nominated for GotY over the past decade by The Game Awards (or their previous incarnation, the Spike Video Game Awards).

Note the hardcore Western bias, and the emphasis placed on the most mind-numbingly commercial crap imaginable. The terrible selection of games should make this all the more interesting, I think. If the tiers don't work for you, you can relabel them to whatever you need them to be. Most of you should probably add a "haven't played" tier, for example.

I'm personally not qualified to make my own list yet, because I haven't played 90% of this bullshit, but I know most of you guys have, so I'll leave it up to you. Instead, I decided to relabel the tiers and rank them in terms of how interested I am in playing them.



If I had to pick a personal GotD from these fifty-two, I'd have to say BotW (it's actually Dark Souls, though).

Oh, and if you're wondering about "RTHST," that's supposed to be Hearthstone, but it wouldn't fit because it doesn't have any packaging artwork. Journey and PUBG are cut off for similar reasons. Sorry about that.

I was going to make a tier list with those games but decided not to because nearly 30 of them I couldn't care less about and Persona 5 was the only game on the list that I thought was near-flawless.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

I haven't played ant of the ones in your Mildly Interested section, but I will say Sekiro and RDR2 were on a list of games I was somewhat interested in as well. Ironically RDR1 was not.

of the ones i'm at least somewhat interested in, are there any you've played that you'd say i shouldn't bother with

are these ranked within the ranks
Nah, despite how highly I ranked some of the upper-middle pack I don't have a whole lot of fondness for them. I'd really have to search my feelings/do a lot of replays to do that.

You lads gotta limit your tiers so people can actually tell the differences between them

Disclaimer: My list is dependent on how much fun I had playing them and not really about how objectively solid they are as games

Read Dead and Outer Worlds are games I already own, hence why RDR1 is in will definitely play and RDR2 isn't. Outer Worlds is a game I was looking forward to but was a complete letdown for me. I suppose technically it should go in played enough of but I still feel obligated to finish it.

Otherwise, I just have very specific tastes I guess - most Playstation and Nintendo exclusives do very little for me, especially the "third person over-the-shoulder shooter with action-adventure elements" that it feels like all PS4 stuff is. My Ew Gross tier is kind the games where I have an active want to not play them, whereas uninterest is just the stuff that passes me by. I guess it's kind of obvious where my interests do lie though given almost all of the games there I have played are science fiction-themed.

For GOTD, I'd probably go to Skyrim if considering larger influence within games as a whole but Doom or Titanfall if just going off my personal favourite.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

I think all three of my S-tier games are worthy of GOTD so it's hard to decide.  From my own personal tastes my favourite is RDR2 however putting biases aside I think BOTW is probably the most mechanically competent game, though I haven't played as much of it as I have TW3 or RDR2. I admire BOTW's hands-off approach to an open world story which to me is almost reminiscent of the original Fallout but I personally love the more focused, narrative-heavy games that the other two are. Overall though I might actually pick TW3, having finally finished it after 2 years. idk it's hard

If I were to pick a game for each year just from this selection:
2010 - Red Dead Redemption
2011 - Portal 2
2012 - The Walking Dead
2013 - Grand Theft Auto V
2014 - Shadow of Mordor
2015 - The Witcher 3
2016 - Titanfall 2 I guess??
2017 - Breath of the Wild
2018 - Red Dead Redemption 2
2019 - The Outer Worlds

Probably because nobody here has seen this game.

Honestly this thread was the first time I'd heard about it. So I don't really have anything to say on it for better or worse.

It's heavily inspired by the SCP Foundation, and I seem to recall a lot of Bnet people being into that stuff.

Not necessarily you, I guess, but yeah.

This isn't Code Vein. As long as you don't dress like a fucking hooker, don't use the weeaboo weapons and stay as far as possible from the attrocity that is the game's community (especially the subreddit), it's not any more weebshit than Titanfall. You'd probably like the gunner weapons.
