Yay! Finally! What a year this was. So many games deserve to be GOTY but there can only be one I suppose. I'm doing reverse order for more suspense.

Honourable mentions:
GT Sport
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

10.  Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy - this is an excellent remaster of two amazing games, and one good game. It was fun and challenging and still great to play in 2017. I rated this 8.5/10

9.  Golf Story - I was looking for some fun Switch games when I saw this recommended by some people. Its fantastic, a short RPG with a great story and interesting gameplay. Really fun little indie exclusive. 8.6/10

8. F1 2017 - I'm a huge fan of f1 games, so this was always going to be up there. But this game is a very big improvement over last year in many areas, and I had a lot of fun with it. 8.8/10

7. Assassin's Creed Origins - I can't believe this is only #7. I loved this game when I was playing it. The world is incredible and the gameplay is fantastic and fresh. Side quests are by far the best ever for AC too. It was let down by a rushed/ weird story and repetitive feel after a while. 9.1/10

6. Uncharted The Lost Legacy - Possibly the most fun 6 hours I've ever had in gaming. The pacing was great, set pieces and action incredible and the story and characters excellent. If it was a full game/ kept that up for longer it would score even higher. 9.2/10

5. Divinity Orignal Sin 2 - One of the best RPGs I've ever played (and I haven't quite finished it yet). The creativity is fantastic, even if the main story is quite boring and uneventful. Gameplay is slow but very in depth and rewarding. Co-op is the reason I rate this so highly, I'm having a blast playing with a friend. 9.3/10

4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - I consider this the best Mario Kart game since DS. It has the highest number and best quality of tracks and fantastic new gameplay features. I'm happy putting this remaster up here too because of the nice Switch exclusive features like double items. 9.4/10

3. Super Mario Odyssey - this game is pure joy in video game form. The gameplay is really inventive and always fresh. Its full of surprises and constantly makes you smile. The amount of content is great too, its just a shame it has a horrible post-post game ending level and can get a bit repetitive with some moons. 9.6/10

2. Horizon Zero Dawn - I was convinced this would be my game of the year. I absolutely love it. The machines and gameplay involving them is incredible. The story is fantastic (probably my favourite video game story ever). The world is beautiful. Aloy is amazing. Its probably my favourite (new) PS4 game and it can't do much to improve in my eyes. 9.8/10

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - I wasn't sure if this would be my kind of game, since its story light and all about exploration. I was tentative going into it. But oh my lord did it exceed my expectations. This game blew me away right from the start and 90 hours of playtime later it still does. The creativity in gameplay is amazing, the story is fantastic and exploration of the world is just something else. Its the only game I've played where I've enjoyed just wondering around off the beaten track, messing around and discovering things to do. Most of the problems other people have with the game I don't care about or I think they're positives. Its pretty much video game perfection, in my opinion. 10.0/10

You calling me lazy, pardner?

Pezus is probably too busy saving lives or impersonating a doctor to write up a big post.

Well the winner obviously is Persona 5, good that we've cleared that up.

Crash, Mario Kart 8(technically didn't play, but also technically did.. :P ) are the same solid games we've come to expect.  Crash especially looks amazing on the PS4.  It doesn't look like a remastered PS1 game, it looks like it'd easily fit alongside PS4 games like Knack.    

Knack II is like Knack, but better.  That's why it deserves To BE  GOAT.  

Horizon is also amazing. It's a very fast moving and fluid RPG, I would say it doesn't really have competition in that respect.  I kind of wish it was a little better.  Fighting doesn't feel as solid to me, as say Bloodborne.  That's my only real complaint about the game.  The world is amazing to explore. The gameplay is otherwise amazing.  I think there's a lot here to expand on.
