    I really love Pokemon Sun & Moon, but I think game with frame rate problem doesn't deserve "Game of The Year" title.

    Well, the Pokemon option is just there to get stats of how many Poketards lurk the temp, it's a trick option expected to be on top, as not even the temp is safe from the pest.
    You can just read the list as if the trick option wasn't there, then you will find the real winner for the moment is between overwatch and ffxv.
    Overwatch has been quite popular, so I wouldn't be surprised it would be on top of the polls, but as for ffxv I really don't think it's GOTY material.

    Not really a fan of Pokemon as you could tell reading my ultra biased post. I really decided I didn't want to bear with the repetitiveness anymore after X/Y.

    In terms of best game of the YEAR? No pokemon doesn't come even slightly near that title legitimately. Only when you're on a site full of poketards.
    I pretty much addressed this in previous thread. The story was absolute shit this time around. It was thick, it was constantly in your face. You couldn't walk 3 steps without the game either screaming at you to go the other way, or to shove more useless story into your skull. Pokemon stories can usually be pretty annoying but they're never -this- annoying. I actually finally gave up exploring as I went and just decided to brute force my way through the story as fast as humanly possible just to get it over with.
    Some of the music is pretty good. But pokemon usually has some solid tracks in each iteration.
    They opted to remove gyms, which were fun unique little puzzly things. Not ever horribly difficult, but still cute. Instead we got "here fight like 6 of this exact same pokemon" and then "here fight this big glowing pokemon that summons the pokemon you just beat"
    oooh, unique!

    It has some nice additions in terms of convenience for hardcore players like easier shinies and easier IVs/breeding but that's about it. Bottlecaps got kind of gimped by requiring level 100 with no real means of getting pokemon there without grinding the elite 4 forever. Though nonethless a nice option to iv train shinies and pokemon you've grown attached to on your journey.

    Overall in terms of just being a pokemon game, it's pretty hit and miss. To call it GOTY is a pretty massive insult to pretty much every game on that list which arguably deserve the title more for any number of reasons.

    Of fucking course Pokemon is winning against the real GOTY DOOM. Fucking hell it was one of the worst PK Games. It was cut scenes the game. Even at the end, THE END, of the game the game was still telling you what to do. It wasn't letting you have any freedom or anything.

    This poll is a mistake.

    To many people who like pokemon on this site for any games to have a chance.

    Oh come on, It's going to be Pokemon. Might as well end the poll and let the brainwashed pokepeople win, even though S&M was shit

    It has to be the poketards ruining this poll, and even 2016.
