Wow... Wattam on the cover! :o . Man, we've been waiting for this for over two years; for an indie title this has been a heck of a development. I created our GR game thread for the game back in October 2015 thinking that the game was launching in January 2016 :lol: . It looked super weird and I can't wait to see it.

As for the Edge Awards... I don't get how Zelda BotW can be the Switch GOTY but Mario Odyssey pips it for overall GOTY.

Exactly what I was thinking (it's the other way around though) :lol:

Maybe Mario is more exemplary of what a Switch game should be in some way? I dunno, not played it yet.

Those Mario and Zelda results make absolutely no sense :lol:

Unfortunately haven't played half the games on there but they seem pretty consistent with other publications. I really want to try Nier, Nioh, Yakuza 0 but can't imagine ever having the time.

Arms at no. 5. Just bought this and it’s a pleasant surprise even though I’m only playing single player. I can see the depth it has even though I’m just fumbling about at the moment.

According to the text, Mario Odyssey is the most Nintendo game of 2017.

Actually its more strange to me that Horizon Zero Dawn a runner-up PlayStation game of the year when Yakuza 0 (and Nex Machina, though I suppose as that's multiplatform I guess it could make some kind of sense) is in the top 10 and Horizon isn't.

Here was me thinking someone had finally got it right by putting Mario as GOTY!

I have only briefly played HZD, but even so I found it a more entertaining game than Yakuza 0 which I just couldn't get into at all. At first I thought I was just having one of those days so I bought Yakuza 0 again to give it another crack of the whip but nope, I just don't like it.

Amount of love for Arms is surprising.

I have no interest in the game (fighters aren't for me), but I can't argue with praise for its visual design.

I wonder if that's GR's own rudderless leading the charge for ARMs there.

That gooseberry fool has always annoys me, I remember CVG/Gamesmaster used to do stuff like that. If youre going to do console specific awards then the overall winner has to be one of the console specific winners, it just has to, none of it makes sense otherwise! But then maybe thats where Im going wrong, looking for video game awards to make sense.
