This will be the 4th Game of the Year event we've held at Playstation Age Fourms. It gives us a chance to reflect upon this years latest and define this years greatest!

The competitors are in the arena! Follow the battle throughout the month on this live thread:
http://playstationcollecting.com/...


So the rules are:

- They have to be games which are released within !December 1st 2016 - December 31st 2016! for Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita. (Games from December can be put forward for receommendation too!)
- They cannot be a re-releases, port or remake (Gravity Rush for the PS4 for example cannot qualify).
- Each game mentioned will earn a point. The top 10 games mentioned will contend in the competition.
- I recommend a maximum of mention of 5 titles to keep some order to it. Remember, this is not just voting for your favourite, this also gives your 2nd and 3rd contender a chance to fight. Which might be worthwhile should your no.1 not succeed.
- This thread will be live from October 30th - Novemeber 30th, then in December a new live thread with the top 10 titles will compete for Game of the Year! Upon January the 1st we will start are new year with crowning a champion for 2016!


We now do include digital titles for recommendation, we're starting to see note worthy titles which shouldn't be ignored.

I think it's been a so-so year, not quite as big as 2015, A LOT of HD remasters which have been brilliant (but sadly not applicable). But a lot of delays have deeply held back from thsi year being memorable. 2017 will be a firecracker though!

Incase anyone is interested, here are the results of the previous 3 years:
2015 - http://playstationcollecting.com/...
2014 - http://playstationcollecting.com/...
2013 - http://playstationcollecting.com/...

Uncharted 4 - I still get chills from the first few chapters. Naughty Dog is truly the king of story telling.

World of Final Fantasy - Still early, but loving every bit of it.

Final Fantasy XV - Really excited, but we'll see once it releases.

I wish I could make suggestions, but I haven't played a single game that was released this year.  

-------------------------




Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

1. DOOM (PS4)

2. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (PS4/VITA)

3. Dragon Quest: Builders (PS4)

These are the only games i've finished that have came out this year!

I'd bet that Final Fantasy 15 will be a GOTY for a lot of people.

We're on our last week now!!! Great suggestions so far but be warned upon December the 1st the main competition will begin!!! So get your suggestions in ASAP!

Mine are:
Final Fantasy XV - Big expectations on this, been avoiding the internet spoilers out now - hence why I haven't been online much lately  
The Last Guardian
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
République

For me, definitely:

1. Uncharted 4 - Epic Conclusion to Epic Series
2. Blazblue Central Fiction - Epic Conclusion to Epic Series
3. Final Fantasy XV - Still early but an incredible direction for the series imo
4. Doom - By all accounts, this should not be as badass as it is, but IT IS and a perfect example of reboot done right
5. Far Cry Primal - Another game that could have fallen hard, but ended up being a truly unique take on the series

I think that the time frame needs to be adjusted. FFXV will only be out less than a week when this cuts off, Last guardian will not even be out yet.

Which is why we have a whole month to decide!   You don't have to make choices early on, I often make mine on the last week.
