One of the biggest games of the year, but sure sure let's make up a new rule as to why it can't be considered for GOTY

It isn't officially out and still in early access for PC. But sure, let's ignore that.

Its the highest selling game of the year, it deserves to be at least nominated.

Absolutely.

I'm starting to think that "gamers" are more obsessed with preserving an arbitrary clique than celebrating the medium.

Games like Minecraft, or Peggle, or even Candy Crush - they might not be what some of you guys with your Razr Pro gaming mouse and giga-rig call 4K 60FPS Ultra Settings GOTY Material(tm), but their overall effect on the gaming landscape is phenomenal and can't be understated.

Just because PUBG is flavour of the month (or... the quarter?) doesn't mean it's discounted. Hell, if you weigh it up against its peers and contemporaries, it may as well have been the only item on the damned menu. You look at Twitch or Mixer and the amount of PUBG channels is overwhelming.

It's kinda like... have you seen those channels on Youtube that're nothing but people opening Kinder Eggs? They seem bizarre at least, and inane at worst. And yet, they're one of the most-subscribed-to subgenres of Youtube videos available. Does the fact that they're weird or not to your liking discount it somehow from being a popular item worthwhile of attention and merit?

If your answer is yes, then I'm certain we're not going to agree on much in this facet of debate.

A decade working in AAA game development? Time certainly flies.

It's fine as long as PUBG can't be nominated later when it is officially released


Sorry just to add, only thing that will be bad is some will allow PUBG as a nominee and others wont.

So you'll have a year with PUBG popping up as a nominee before and after official release...

Not a big deal in my opinion. You know how many big studio games come out like f***ing s*** and in beta that get nominated?

I think if people wanna nominate a game they feel is fun and innovative even in beta form it's all good.

Yes, I'm a PS fan. I'm also a Nintendo fan. Oh and also now an Xbox fan again with 1X.

Please, continue to make your point. Do you have a point?

Not like it'll actually win over Horizon: Zero Dawn, Zelda: BotW and Mario Odyssey. Those are near-flawless masterpieces.

Overwatch won game of the year lol. That game is nowhere near flawless or innovative. It won purely on popularity.

I don't think anyone is ignoring that since it's the whole premise of your topic. I think the point is it doesn't matter. It's literally one of the biggest games of the year that loads and loads of people are playing right now in 2017
