So Mark, Amanda, and I (with Hayley to follow later today) have had our say. But today I'm putting the Big Question to you: what's your favourite games of the year?
Mark figured that last year might have been the best since he started at Kotaku, but 2016 has been a pretty stellar year so far.
It's been more of a multiplayer, FPS focused one than 2015 though. 2015 gave us some great RPGs and open worlds to explore, like Bloodborne, The Witcher 3, Undertale, Pillars of Eternity, MGS5, Xenoblade Chronicles and Ori and the Blind Forest.
This time the praise has gone more towards games like DOOM, Overwatch, That Dragon, Cancer, Titanfall 2 and SUPERHOT. The Witcher 3 got some superb DLC, Final Fantasy 15 was worth the wait, and people in the office were thrilled by The Last Guardian despite the control issues.
But what were your favourites? It's time to vote.
