they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:15 (one year ago) link

Into The Breach is a very good game, but it's no FTL.

re: the console of the year vote, it was separate from the main thing, ppl picked their fave consoles overall for theyear. could include games they didn't even nom/vote. guess people spent more time on the ps4 this year!

Sure sure, and I get that - what I was clumsily trying to get at was, is it just that its exclusives of Spider-man and God of War (and Tetris Effect, which I forgot) were so good, or was it anything else that caused people to think of it fondly in its fifth year?

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:20 (one year ago) link

lol just read Mordy's xp post on Into The Breach, but honestly feel the same.

whoops i was at the grocery store

good list

ciderpress, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:23 (one year ago) link

and the yakuza games! and mlb the show! and detroit become human, lol. ni no kuni. those + your list = a wild exclusives list for 2018!

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:24 (one year ago) link

Additional disappointment of 2018 votes, all one point each:
- Destiny 2
- Marvel Puzzle Quest
- Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom
- Secret of Mana remake
- "not enough hours in the day"

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:24 (one year ago) link

re: PS4 i think it's just that it's a lot of people here's main platform for gaming and nintendo had a lower key year

ciderpress, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:25 (one year ago) link

xp (in addition to one vote each for God of War, Donut County, Far Cry 5, NES Switch Online, and five votes for Red Dead Redemption 2)

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:26 (one year ago) link

So I should play Celeste (and FTL), huh?

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:26 (one year ago) link

I tried to talk myself out of voting for Celeste #1 but it's definitely the one I enjoyed the most.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:26 (one year ago) link

yeah celeste was just one of those self-evidently great and memorable games, couldn't really not vote it #1 though i gave it the tie with ys 8 which was a more emblematic favorite of what i was playing in 2018

ciderpress, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:29 (one year ago) link

celeste is undeniable

Mordy, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:30 (one year ago) link

hollow knight was robbed!*

*I've not played celeste because it didn't go on sale yet

... and the crowd said DESELECT THEM (||||||||), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:43 (one year ago) link

it's been on sale occasionally

ciderpress, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:02 (one year ago) link

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:27 (one year ago) link

Not sure what games I've played I'd say are definitely better than Celeste

I never play enough games to vote in these polls (1-2 a year) but Hollow Knight was such a wonderful experience, glad to see it do so well

Vinnie, Thursday, 18 April 2019 00:12 (one year ago) link

20 Hollow Knight
20 Dead Cells
10 Return of the Obra Dinn
5 Red Dead Redemption 2

these are not all of the possible side effects (Karl Malone), Thursday, 18 April 2019 03:26 (one year ago) link

solid results! Thanks Will for running this. Here's my ballot

5 /// Monster Hunter World

30 /// God of War
30 /// Hollow Knight

I haven't played Dead Cells, Obra Dinn or Into the Breath yet, but I look forward to playing them.

JimD, Friday, 19 April 2019 12:07 (one year ago) link

If I'd played more games last year I might've added to the Obra Dinn votes - I had a few minor reservations but overall loved that game.

emil.y, Friday, 19 April 2019 13:36 (one year ago) link

Yeah, my enthusiasm for Obra Dinn was only slightly dampened by some interface/navigation annoyances, but it’s one that I’ll be recommending for a long time.

And as good as Dead Cells is, there’s probably going to be another 20 games like it over the next few years. Obra Dinn, unless something very unexpected happens, is unlikely to be replicated anytime soon.

Is this for the first C+P where indies swept the top 5?

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Friday, 19 April 2019 16:52 (one year ago) link

we're all getting old.

Nhex, Friday, 19 April 2019 16:53 (one year ago) link

they're the only realm where everyone's on the same page

ciderpress, Friday, 19 April 2019 17:16 (one year ago) link

fuck, hollow knight finished... 6th last year? how did i let that one slide? i hope the voters were all new voters. if not i tsk at you. TSK TSK TSK
2 years ago was a near-sweep of the top for indies. inside, dark souls 3, witness, stardew, salt & sanctuary. indies always do very well here, if not for borderlands, marvel puzzle quest, dark souls, and a couple of other cult classics over here it'd almost always be all indies!

also i forgot to post my own ballot.

YAKUZA 6: The Song of Life - 26
YAKUZA KIWAMI 2 - 25
Tetris Effect - 15
Spider-Man - 10
Hole.io - 4
Far Cry 5 - 4
Valkyria Chronicles 4 - 4
Red Dead Redemption 2 - 4
Into the Breach - 4
Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee - 2
Octopath Traveler - 2

ty 4 playing everyone! see you next year! (or sooner if i run a summer/fall generations poll!)

i did think something was off about Hollow Knight, it makes sense since it didn't come to consoles until 2018

Nhex, Friday, 19 April 2019 18:46 (one year ago) link

yeah it had a bigger hype cycle when it came out on switch than when the original pc version came out the previous year

ciderpress, Friday, 19 April 2019 18:48 (one year ago) link

also PCs are for powerpoint

... and the crowd said DESELECT THEM (||||||||), Friday, 19 April 2019 18:53 (one year ago) link

dark souls 3 is indie?

Last year, I played the intro section of Hollow Knight on PC and I may have given it some points. I played the rest of the game on PS4 this year.
