GOTY (3rd Party Titles Only, No Indies, MAINSTREAM GAMES)










In an effort to make literally the most mainstream post possible, I have constructed a poll of only third party games in a year dominated by first parties. I've also made the rule of no indie games, though I've allowed cuphead because it's just that mainstream.

In a list of games that I probably wouldn't even put one of them in my top 10 for the year, which was your favorite?!

Other - Xenoblade Chronicles 2

I haven't played any of those besides PUBG and that's not GOTY material.

Nier Automata is almost perfect.
Just needed some weapon variety.

Cuphead was published by Microsoft, how is that an indie game?

Didn't they technically publish a s***-ton of of games that were on the XBL marketplace that were indie?

And: https://www.engadget.com/2014/01/04/1930s-cartoon-inspired-cuphead-targeting-late-2014-launch-on-pc/

Indie developer StudioMDHR's introductory game Cuphead will launch in late 2014 on PC...StudioMDHR, which consists of brothers Jared and Chad Moldenhauer...


Certainly seems like an indie title to me.

Indie means independent. If a studio is dependent on an outside publisher then they're not very independent are they?

It doesn't matter if it's a studio with 5 employees or 5,000. If they use an outside publisher, they're not independent. If they publish themselves then they're independent

Don't know where you're getting "Cuphead was published by Microsoft" from, but Microsoft disagrees with you.
