We Discuss Games That Only Appeared on Our GOTY List, Not Anyone Else's


Welcome to Waypoint's Pantheon of Games, a celebration of our favorite games, a re-imagining of the year's best characters, and an exploration of the 2017's most significant trends.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://waypoint.vice.com/en_us/article/43qx7p/we-discuss-games-that-only-appeared-on-our-goty-list-not-anyone-elses


This is what I love about seeing other people’s list of games they see is the best of the year is knowing what many have missed (Many times I end up buying them on sale in the next year) and to see where these games stand in for the year.

I feel that Hollow Knight, outside of the many Waypointers who played it, is missed due to being release between big titles.


Yep, far beyond the value of ranking (even via completely transparent processes like the GB podcast deliberations) “top” games, it’s the ones that might otherwise slip through the cracks that really give the end of year formalities a purpose beyond endless back slapping.

Grappling class? Is Danielle secretly…


Bionic Commando?!
