Niche Gamer Community Poll for Game of the Year 2017

It’s time for the inaugural Niche Gamer community Game of the Year Awards!

Since this is our first year doing this sort of thing alongside our staff picks, we took more time deliberating on which games to include in the pool of potential best games of this year.

As such, the following games are titles that we have reviewed here on Niche Gamer, as well as games that were scored highly, mostly loved by fans, or had a big impact on the industry.

These are by no means in any order but we definitely wanted to limit candidates by only things we have reviewed and thus, feel are worth including.

Please take the time to vote your choice for this year’s ultimate game of the year! We’re running the poll for the entire month of December, so no worries if you’re unsure. What was your GOTY pick this year?

Should we include separate genre categories/topics next year? Also keep an eye out for our own staff GOTY picks later this month. Please let us know and leave feedback in the comments below!


The staff at Niche Gamer are crazy passionate about the same games that we cover and play every day. Please feel free to contact us any time!
