    I've recently started playung Undertale and now, I seem to understand why this game won. It's quite a fresh experience after all.

    First Undertale beat the forefathers of a franchise, Pokemon Red/Blue, and now this? Come on! Seriously, good for it. I never played it.

    Thats why its Goty and not Goat. A game of all time contest would be soooo different. And the winner wouldnt be witcher 3.

    I also never played undertale btw.

    I would like to express my disappointment with each and every member of this community. I can't believe this game won over killer titles like MGS V: TPP, Fallout 4, Bloodborne or The Witcher 3. Clearly there's still lots of work to do for a cynical asshole like myself - I'll refine your tastes even if I have to bleach your tastebuds, you'll see. Don't disappoint me next year! :angry:

    It's the flavor of the week...

    It makes zero sense, in my opinion. Is it a bad game? No, it's actually quite fun, but it's not even remotely worthy of game of the year. Just shows that the same type of people that go to gamefaqs come here as well.

    So true, think of all the other indie games that get a lot of buzz at launch (Axiom Verge anyone?) and then lose the luster after a month or two. But to each their own, and good for Undertale (on this website) at least for the recognition. Witcher 3 is still eating up all the other official trophies/awards which makes me happy.

    Please exclude PP from the list, it was bad for a MGS game and game in general.

    The Undertale bots made it here too, it seems. Fucking ridiculous.

    Undertale is the best! I had a feeling it would win.

    Undertale stood out for many reasons and I think it greatly deserved it's GOTY spot. It introduced a mechanic I've never seen done before. That is being able to spare your enemies. In other games, you can flee from battles, sure, but having the option to never kill anybody and talk your way through every fight was a great new concept for me. Everybody knows if you're spared everybody or killed everybody and it greatly affects their attitudes toward you. Going this way lets you learn backstories of characters that are really more in depth than you'd think, especially from an indie game. It was a fresh new experience and I loved every minute of it. Everybody that hasn't played Undertale should really give it a shot, it's GBATemp's GOTY for a reason, you know.
