Geez, someone on the staff must have really loved The Banner Saga 3. I'm sure it's a fine game, but this is literally the first time this year I've seen any publication mention it. I am glad Pillars of Eternity II has gotten some love though.

Other than RDR2 being GOTY, I can't say I have any serious gripes about their list. Best hardware is definitely PSVR. This is the year they finally convinced me to buy one, and then I went all in after that. It feels weird to *not* put on that headset every time I go to my living room to play games now. Can't do 2+ hour long sessions, but I really love it. And Tetris Effect is the real GOTY IMHO.
