    Welcome everyone, to yet another amazing year for gaming. It seems this little hobby of ours just keeps getting better. Surely, there have been some hiccups along the way this year(Thanks EA and Activision), but overall this year has proven to be filled with amazing adventures, experiences, and announcements that we can all share and enjoy together as a community, as small as it may be. So as always at this time of year, I decided to a throw a little celebration of this year's wonderful journey. A celebration where everyone can share all the goodies they enjoyed as well as give one final middle finger to the things they didn't. Yup. That's right. It's time for the 2017 Arcade GOTY Awards. :iria

    Purpose of these awards?
    We gamers love to show off. We absolutely love it when we have the platform to express our opinions about the games we love or hate. These awards allow us to do this in the grandest of fashions possible for us peasants. And who knows, you might even pick up something you completely forgot about or never knew existed. Simply put, we all love video games and we can't stop talking about them, and this is just another flashier platform to do that. :)

    Nomination phase skipped.
    It's unfortunate but I've decided to skip the nomination phase this year. It's sad but true, but this section while healthy in its own right is limited in numbers so I'm trying to get things to be as simple as possible. Last year's attempt while praise-worthy, was a little ambitious and resulted in the project being abandoned in what I assumed was due to the lack of activity. That's why I decided that I wanted to keep things simple. So without further ado, head on to the next paragraph if you want to know how you can chime in. :metroid

    How do I vote?
    Easy. Just vote on each of the categories below. Only one vote for each category is allowed. I know this may sound tough, but it's better to keep things simple than to fall in last year's trap and risk abandoning the whole thing. If you vote for more than one game I'll simply count the first vote from the left. Also, it goes without saying, but only games from 2017 are eligible. You can use my vote below as an example.

    What happens in case of a draw?
    We'll simply have a separate tiebreaking thread to determine the winner of that specific category.

    When does voting end?
    You can edit your votes right up until I close this thread which will be on December 31st. I will then announce the winners on the 1st of January 2018. Winner announcements might be postponed depending on any potential tiebreaker threads.

    Well then... Get to voting. :iria

    (Note: Oddly enough, the hardest catergory for me was best OST. I spent a good 10 minutes listening to P5 and Fire Emblem Echoes's soundtracks back to back trying to make a decision. Ultimately, feel-good Jazz won, even if Echoes's arrangements arguably had more effort put into them)

    Best Xbox One Game No seriously
    Best Switch Game Again one of those three
    Best 3DS Game Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
    Best Role-Playing Game Xenoblade 2 probably

    I dunno. Splatoon 2 was fun for a while and will probably pick up again but I'm too busy with other games
    Most Innovative Gameplay Experience Breath of the Wild maybe
    Best Art-Direction Not sure
    Best Narrative in a Video Game We'll see
    Best Company of the Year(Developer or Publisher) Nintendo hands down and that's without my obviously biased view (due to only playing on their systems rather than true bias)
    Best New Character (Introduced in 2017) Eh, who knows?
    Best Returning Character (Introduced before 2017) What?
    Best Original Sound Track Probably Xenoblade 2. Just listen to the Mor Ardain Day theme

    Best Downloadable Content (Free or Otherwise) We'll see
    Most Anticipated Game of 2018 As for partially confirmed ones, Fire Emblem Switch I guess. I need to see more of what's confirmed for the year.
    Best Returning Game of 2016 What?

    I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about the "lel dunno who cares" stuff in categories you didn't vote in.

    By "returning" I mean something from pre-2017 with a specific impact in the current year:

    Returning game from 2016 = best game from 2016 that is still good or maybe got healthy developer support,etc..
    Returning character = a character that made an appearance in 2017 but made a debut in the past.

    And so on...

    Sorry if it read so vague, but I assumed it was clear enough seeing how the others voted without any issues.

    Oh I thought you meant a game from 2016 that got rereleased on a different platform like Doom or Skyrim on the Switch.

    I guess I'll change my vote to Witcher 3 GOTY

    Regarding the platform votes, they would be more fun if they were something like "Best PS4 Exclusive" rather than "game". Just my 2 cents.
