    One game this year has been transformative to online multiplayer, launching a new genre from niche to mainstream without a significant marketing budget.
    Despite it's flaws PUBG is the equivalent dune 2, doom, etc in terms of really showing what the genre is about.

    Frankly it's absurd that any other game is in contention. Some games on the list are solid/polished games but nothing else is coming close.

    Anything else winning is like "How Green Was My Valley" winning best picture instead of Citizen Kane, Art Carney in "Harry and Tonto" beating Al Pacino in "Godfather II" to best actor, or more recently Shakespeare in Love beating Saving Private Ryan.

    That's like saying because Wonder Woman was well received, open doors for superhero women leads/women empowerment, and broke box office records that it should get movie of the year.

    It doesn't work that way.

    PUBG is still in early access and has no business in any GOTY discussions.

    PUBG isnt "transformative" lol. Its an online shooter with a fresh concept. But at the end of the day, that is all it is. Notice most of the comments here about GOTY include stuff like "immersive story", "great gameplay", "great soundtrack", etc.

    I mean, every game on that list there are almost all online shooters. That has nothing to do with the basis of "game of the year", thats replay value because if a PvP environment and the innate desire to be the best among your peers.

    Also, by your assessment of "most played", League of Legends would be game of the year, not PUBG.

    PUBG is an imported mod from H1Z1, which in itself is an imported mod from AMRA 2. It didn't catch on during it's ARMA 2 days. It kinda caught on with H1Z1, which made its own standalone game "King of the Kill." It took that long for it to establish itself as a genre.

    Presentation-wise, it's still pretty damn ugly. Gameplay-wise, it fills a void in PvP shooters that took a few iterations to get right, and thus leading a new shooter genre that now has a bunch of copycats - aka. Fortnite's rendition. It's still buggy. Netcode can be iffy at times affecting gameplay. For an early access game, sure it's good. For a full release game? Not GotY since I judge its presentation to be pretty subpar compared to the other titles listed.

    As for it not being on the GotY voting, leave it for next year. Dec 1st is a fair cutoff since it hasn't officially launched.

    League being the most popular game on earth is truly a sign we have lost God's light

    Popular or not, if someone says it is their GOTY then thats their vote. Will they lose on BG's poll? Probably, but that doesn't mean their vote is wrong, it just doesn't fit the BG demographic.

    Besides all that, where is MvC:I?? LOL

    Its not that hes salty because PUBG isnt on the list, even though its not released yet, hes salty because there IS a list and PUBG didnt win by default.

    I don't really give a shit about this conversation, but if you're going to sit there with a straight face and try to compare that king of the kill bullshit to Doom expect to get the fucking smackdown. Fuck outta' here.

    What's the hype over PUBG anyways? Just seems like a slightly more robust KitK/H1Z1. Is driving around in circles to make it to the end really that much more fun now?

    I don't get the hype for it really. Full disclosure I've never played the game but it just looks like a shitty PS2 era shooter with some last man standing and fully autistic playerbase thrown in for lulz.

    Nothing, if anything it has even more annoyances than KitK/H1Z1 did, and Fortnight has come along and fixes a lot of problems PUBG has. Really PUBG only got as popular as it did cause all the top streamers picked the game up at the same time causing it to explode. The game doesn't do anything new or exciting, it runs like absolute crap, and has a ton of design flaws, but it's still riding that hype train. Although several of the top streamers have moved on now and it seems like the hype for the game is dying down a bit. Summit's channel has actually grown since he swapped to fortnight.

    Even if it releases next week it will be even more out place in GOTY when it loses its early access shield against criticism and its still got all the problems that are still in the game.
