A very competitive year saw the battle royale game emerge on top, with CD Projekt Red also getting a few awards to celebrate.
It isn't even a 2018 game...
Same happened with Fortnite at another award show These games are getting awards and they launched a year before.
Money talks. People know PUBG so they vote for it, same for Fortnite. It's sad and quite frankly disheartening to see how sheep-like the masses are. It's ironic that the ever astute Master race would vote for such a low brow money machine.
This is getting ridiculous. Mgs 1 better win something this year then since no more rules.
We live in a world where people think that this cynical asset flip is better than celeste...
Master Race Choice
Because people have no taste.
I'm guessing it's more of a popularity contest, and PUBG is much bigger in other countries than most of the westerners here might think
I feel sorry for PC gamers if PUBG is their GOTY.
Well it wasn't mine, my pick was Dragon Quest XI.
vote based GOTY awards are just popularity contests and this game sold a ridiculous number of copies.
*sigh* People don't need context for their games. They don't need good music during gameplay. They don't need tone. They don't need actually good, varied, interesting ideas... Nah, just give them a huge map with shrinking circle of death and place randomized weapons which have no reason to be there context-wise and tell them to kill each other. Aaaaand GOTY ! I'm so ****ing ashamed... So ashamed... It's utter shit, but people like it. "You have no right to tell us what to enjoy !" they say and I am just... So ashamed...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain there were more than zero games release in 2018, which makes them all better candidates for GotY than a shitty battle royale released in 2017.
I voted for ac odyssey since it's actually a 2018 game.
So, is this the best of Steam? Sorry for you, PC guys.
My goty, every year
