  1. Game pass and DLC aren’t games.
    And Sony is not a good publisher.
    And why is Epic games best studio when their game isn’t even on the GOTY list?
    And why is Destiny 2 on any ‘best’ list?

    1. because as a studio epic making ton of money lol. yes destiny 2 is on second best living games, do you know what it means?

      1. A developer makes games. If they can’t even make something on the top 10 then they’re clearly not the best at making games.
        Activision gave away free copies of Destiny 2 to all Blizzard account holders a month or so ago in a desperate attempt to convince people to play that microtransaction ridden garbage.

      2. fortnite is not the best game right now, but as a studio epic really do a great job how they handle and read the battle royale market. they gave a constant and free update, listen to their community, etc.

        about destiny 2, do you know about “living game” right?

  2. Also, no Soulja Game Console GOTY category? That graphically enhanced Super Mario Bros port looks dope with the screen tearing filters they added. Truly a pinnacle of how far technology has come.

  3. It’s a pretty odd list but any list made by people is going to have some strange choices. I don’t know why PSVR is the best hardware when it was released in 2016. Edge are a bit weird though
