Basically, what site/magazine do you go to for reviews.
Also you do you look to for your GOTY rankings?
I ask this cause while perusing the wonderful world of the Internet, I came across the joystik
site has already put gta5 up as goty. But yhen when looking back through there list, they also labelled fable 2 as a goty as well. Fable has been good or relevant since no 1. And yes I do own up to fable 4 I believe lol.
I agree with Niko in that I determine my own GOTY but as far as the question, I usually use GameInformer and Polygon. Polygon is pretty snobbish sometimes and they sometimes have people reviewing genres they hate (Jrpgs..) but they usually give a decent explanation for why they scored it like they did.
