    Overwatch really seems to upset some people on here. Kinda strange.

    Makes for great bait though.

    Boring, re-skinned, TF2, "corridor shooter" Overwatch cracks over 20million players (plus still goin strong) and doesn't get a honorable mention?

    Having just played Nier : Automata demo a couple days ago I have to change my mind and put that as my fave GOTY.

    This isn't a comprehensive list. Its just one or two of each contributors favourite games of the year.
    GP isnt IGN. It doesn't have a massive staff for that sort of content.

    GP hates Overwatch.

    I'm surprised that their "Tracer is gay" news article didn't have a comments thread. That would've generated a lot of traffic since it's a hot topic issue for some people.

    (My opinion on the matter is IDGAF. Lore is absolutely not a thing which matters for a campaign-less, round-based MP game. It's not Left 4 Dead.)

    Fair enough Matt - We are just different gamers.

    I don't think of it a a TF2 clone however, more of a newer version of that type of game. Bringing in more elements a MOBA maybe, spells and the ability to sway the tide with diverse team mash ups. TF2 you can just K/D focus and solo play.
    Overwatch was the first game i've played in years that i bothered jumping on comms for and it was quite fun.

    It did feel like a TF clone initially and that's what put me off the purchase. But while I really disliked TF2, I love Overwatch. Feels a lot more polished and pushes towards co-ordinated team-play. Flanking is encouraged but it's in a tight window or still being proximal to the objective. So it's corridor, but wider than that - and generally results in a lot of fun.

    Blizzard does rip off other ideas, but when they do, they generally do an as good if not better job.

    Yeah it's debatable but it's not exactly open world either. A lot of the tasks are linear with tight(ish) flanking options (i.e being in a rectangular path). People get really hung up on it being one or the other. You're not on a rail, but often the objective is.

    Math is hard when you apply xor to everything.

    I feel that this is really their shtick. They combine alot of great elements, apply fantastic Blizzard art direction & polish then dominate the genre.

    In fact they keep doing this, ie WoW often makes popular mods into main game features in future patches.

    I think it's less a shtick than a business model, and an effective one.

    See also Lucasarts in the '90s.

    Blizzard nails everything they do. They don't release broken half finished crap
