Game of Our Year 2017

I agree with Billy's saltiness. PUBG doesn't have a particularly interesting or original mechanic. You may have found it lots of fun, but I didn't agree with that final decision either.

Persona 5 was my personal GOTY, so I'm kind of surprised it didn't do better here because there was a lot of enthusiasm for it earlier. Everyone crossed it off the lists very quickly.

Here are my takeaways from the GOTY podcast.
1. I'm with Billy; PYRE GOT ROBBED! It presents a beautiful world, is a blast to play, and is a deviation from Supergiant Games’ previous outings.
2. Speaking of which, this was the saltiest I have ever heard Billy on a podcast.
3. Gino must be enthused with crayon and coloring kits at chain restaurants because that’s the only explanation I have for his defense of Magic Pengel in every category.
4. Don't fuck with ZP when you insult his anime bullshit because he will ice any fool who does.
5. ZP doesn’t like Life is Strange? “Actively dislike” seems incredibly harsh.
6. You should give each host a “point” whenever a game they brought to the podcast won a category. Whoever has the most points is the “King of the Trenchies.”
