Stats

Disclaimer:
As per our guidelines, only overall Game of the Year awards are counted in the totals below. Any comparison with numbers from other sources (like NDGame) that include platform-specific awards from PC or console-only sites would be misleadingall of the titles listed here would have a significantly higher total with those types of awards included.

    Additionally, these totals are not permanently static; if qualifying awards for prior years are found to have been overlooked, the relevant titles and their release year pages will be updated accordingly. 2017-2019, in particular, still have awards trickling in, as there is now a larger pool of people searching for the remaining awards.
