Only considering game I've played (which admittedly limits things quite a bit) I must say it's not too easy (again). CoD, for once, has actually tried something new and fairly successfully, FC4 was decent, but lacking, and Watch_Dogs was a nice idea but not amazingly well executed (and I've played too little of transistor too long ago to remember it)
It's a close call between Far Cry 4 and Tropical Freeze for me, but I'm giving my vote to Far Cry based on sheer fun-factor.
Don't think any of these are even vaguely deserving of GotY but of the list TWD is the one I enjoyed the most.
The Stick of Truth definitely needs to be in the final list!
I gave a vote for CoD, simply because it's redefined itself this year instead of stagnating further.
Out of all of those I decided to vote for FFXIV ARR as it's one of the games on the list which I most enjoyed playing. It took a pretty poor MMO, rebooted it and created something really fun to play with a well established lore.
Enjoyed CoD:AW but it's not too different, don't own a copy yet.
Really enjoyed Wildstar but I felt like the issue with PVE was it chucked you in at the deep end, which isn't fun unless the rest of your party know what they're doing. So as someone who started later than friends I didn't really get to enjoy any PVE while leveling which was a big shame.
some really big games missed out of this list imo, dark souls 2, hearthstone, destiny, bayonetta 2, the new world of warcraft expansion, infamous, shadow of mordor, wolf among us, and these are just to name a few of the many better contenders
None of them were particularly good - certainly not GoTY, but for the fun I had playing it, South Park: Stick of Truth
South Park: The stick of truth is superb
And that's the poll closed! Far Cry 4, South Park and Watch Dogs have all fought their way through to the finale which will be up shortly.
With only one vote I couldn't give it to DKC: Tropic Freeze myself, but it's sad to see that it didn't get any at all here - I'd say it's quite a lot stronger as a game than Watch_Dogs in particular. Still, I'm pleased to see Far Cry 4 winning this vote.
Sad to see no votes for any of the MMORPGs bar mine. Wasn't too impressed with the south park game myself.
