By the way, if you want proof of how weak a remastered game can be compared to its original counterpart, just look at this poll. The less a remaster/remake adds to the original experience, the weaker it will be.

Which makes DQXI a bit of an oddball because its neither a remaster or a remake. ITs just a definitive Switch port with more content.

Remasters should be from previous generations and Remakes.

DQXI should have been on the Switch Poll. A was. Why wasn't DQ? DQXI is Switch's highest rated game this year.

Just bizarre.

It's unlikely that LA would have benefited from this in the Switch poll which is more top heavy than the games in this poll. When you factor in the presence of Luigi's Mansion 3, Pokemon, and Super Mario Maker 2, there's far less reason to vote for LA if you haven't played the game because it's more likely you have played one of the other games in the Switch poll.

LA might actually be stronger than the Switch poll would suggest based on the early vote totals in today's poll. This poll has 905 votes at the end of the first hour. For comparison, the Switch poll had 931 votes at the end of the first hour and finished with 9599 votes. Despite the lack of RE2, today's poll is on track for about 9000 to 9400 votes (only slightly less than the Switch poll) while outperforming the PS4 poll by at least 500 votes or more. This poll breaking 9000 votes would imply LA is doing an excellent job at drawing in votes despite not having RE2 in the poll and this poll being less top heavy than the Switch poll. If that's the case here, LA could have more strength than expected.

LA looks better on the switch poll than this. IT outright beat Luigis Mansion 3 and got near FE. Which for me is laughable. I don't even like FE but thats a genuine GOTY contender on any platform. Not a lazy remake thats overpriced with technical issues. But thats this site for you. Put Zelda name on it and it will do well regardless.

i mean theres talk of a GOTD poll of the last 10 GOTY winners on Gfaqs.....don't bother. BOTW is going to dominate that poll. I just hope Mass Effect 2 doesn't come last.

There's no chance ME2 will come last. That "honor" will probably belong to Borderlands 2 or FFXV unless a Nintendo game gets SFF'd to death.

instead were going to have a bunch of indie/VR games that noone gives a s*** about.
Blame our GotY format as a whole for that one, not Allen's specific incompetence this year. While you could fairly quibble with the repeated placement (or in some cases, non-placement) of certain games in certain polls, Kingdom Hearts III was the only real snub (seriously, we needed Crash Team Racing over it, yet that game wasn't in the remake poll?), and even then, it would have jobbed hard to RE2.

I'm not sure in what universe almost getting doubled by Three Houses is getting near it. Not to mention you were the one trumping how strong DQ11 Definitive was supposed to be, and now beating some game no one remotely cares about here is supposed to be a better showing than almost doubling a version of DQ11?

Also, I don't want a GotD poll simply because I want to see that question answered this next contest, and that's less likely if we also have a poll about it.

Eh, POTD results don't necessarily correlate to contest results.

Prime example:

I would be totally fine getting a GotD poll since the game strengths seem in that poll wouldn't be completely accurate due to LFF (and possibly SFF). All we would know for sure is that Breath of the Wild is the strongest game of the decade, and Skyrim should come in second place.

I know that. My point is we're less likely to even get a GotD II contest if we also get a poll about it.

Chrono Cross beat Majora's Mask in 2000?

What a world that must have been.
Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!
