  1. Its really too bad that everyone has ignored Stella Glow. That is by far the 3DS GOTY for me (not that there was much competition, since I generally don’t like MH or Zelda games).

    The Witcher 3 is fantastic and completely deserves all the praise it gets. I really hope Wii U owners have PCs or other consoles so they dont miss the experience

    1. Stella Glow is a pretty solid, albeit somewhat slow paced, title. However, I think it’s far from GOTY material, but then again, so are a lot on that list. Unfortunately it’s a virtually unknown IP that falls into that rather niche “anime game” category and would never even be considered, let alone acquire the sales to back it up.

  2. Jaded Ridley X3 {I'm not whining, you suckers... *cough* ..poor souls! I've just been driven insane by Nintendo failing me one too many times this gen!} says:

    Her Story is on that list but Life Is Strange isn’t!?

  3. It might just be me, but I felt that Witcher 3 felt way too clunky to get all the praise it has been given. It was a good game in general, but just not THAT good.

  4. At least the posers on gamespot gave to xenoblade chronicles x the award of best wii u game. Makes me sick to see some people even consider mario maker or splatton over xcx, what do the have in mind? XCX is THE GAME, putting Mario first is literally going by name. XCX is not only the best, but a prove that Monolith is even more competent the most Nintendo development teams.
