Kotaku Australia's Game Of The Year

We've taken the nominations, we've put it to a vote. It's now time to announce your reader-voted Kotaku Australia Game of the Year.

And, surprising absolutely no-one, the winner is...


The Witcher 3

I think it was slowly becoming clear throughout the week that The Witcher 3 was the people's choice. Congrats to CD Projekt Red. We had a clear winner in this vote, with 30% of folks voting for The Witcher 3.


Rocket League

This one, however, did surprise me! Rocket League was in the running in both the console and PC game of the year vote, but didn't make it to the podium in either. I guess you all combined for this one! Good choice. Rocket League is also in my top three games of 2015. 17% of you voted for this.

3rd Place

Fallout 4

Three or four months ago I'd have put real, actual money on Fallout 4 winning this race, but a lot of people seem slightly disappointed with Fallout 4. Not enough that it was squeezed out of the podium however. A solid 13% of people voted Fallout 4 as their game of the year.

Thanks to everyone for voting!


    Welcome to PlayStation, CDProject! Well done.

      Did I miss something here? Why are you welcoming CDPR to PS? Or are just referring to TW3 being the first on a Sony console?

        This is their first appearance on PlayStation and they won GOTY.

          Oh sweet. I thought there'd been some exclusive announcement or something.

    I find it funny that Fallout 4 made it into both the "Kotaku Australia's Game Of The Year" post and the "The Biggest Video Game Disappointments Of 2015" posts...

      Why? Because they can't be accused of being a shill or having a vendetta?

      I think it's good, I think it acknowledges that great games are imperfect... I think it reflect the 'journalism' that so many people think doesn't exist in gaming.

      Biggest DIssappointments was by Kotaku US, where this is done Kotaku AU the best version of Kotaku

      Something can still be great, but also disappointing. Think of Destiny, or the new Star Wars movie.

      Its really simple. it was disappointing to kotaku, but the community voted it in here. :)

    I think the fact that it wasn't the best game of the year by a large margin did come as quite a disappointment to a lot of people.

    I like cheesecake

      OH MAN!
      Hell yeah!
      *high five*

        Solid dessert, Cake of a Lifetime Award.


      Baked or rare/raw? Please elaborate.

        I actually prefer the el cheapo frozen shit, but I'll happily eat it baked.

          How about baked THEN frozen?

            Why not both? *taco music*

            Introducing the new cheesecake layer cake! Buy the ingredients at all good food retailers and go make it.

        Wow, I came here for GOTY and now I'm leaving with a hankering for cheesecake. Good times.

    TW3 100% deserves it in my book
