Community Game Of The Year 2017 Voting Results

January 18, 2018 3 min read

Bam!
Bam!

Hey everyone, it's that time of the year again! A good 5,563 of you decided to submit your top ten lists for Community GOTY voting this year, for a total of 46823 votes (not everyone put in ten games, and that's alright!) on 1008 different games.

Everyone seems to like Zelda a bunch! It was the #2 game on the Editor's list, but manages to take the #1 spot on both of the Community lists. (The two lists are separated by weighted voting, in which a #1 spot would be weighted more heavily than a #2 vote, and a list of pure votes without any weighting!)

Most of the games below should be pretty self-explanatory; games that were released in earlier years in other countries but hit the U.S. in 2017 were valid. A lot of people liked the most recent expansion for XCOM 2, which is why you might see it on the lists below as well.

What a year for games! Thanks to everyone who voted this year, and let's hope 2018 is as good a year for games as 2017 was.
