Controversial PlayStation Plus December Freebie Defended By Developer

Game of the Year 2021 voting round 6: Splitgate vs. Age of Empires IV

Our Game of the Year voting continues, this time pitting portal-powered competitive FPS Splitgate against Microsoft's latest strategy epic, Age of Empires IV. Don't worry, we'll still be doing a more traditional straight-up GOTY vote later in the month, but we thought a bracketed tournament with daily face-offs might be a fun way to keep the conversation going throughout December, plus it'll be interesting to compare results at the end. We picked the 32 highest-rated new games based on their TA user scores (omitting a handful of games that didn't really fit the bill of being 2021 releases, mainly new-gen ports like Control Ultimate Edition), then seeded them randomly to keep things interesting. Check out the full bracket below to see what other clashes are coming up — voting for each will be open for 24 hours, after which we'll kick off the next showdown at 13:00 UTC every day throughout December. But enough chit-chat... to battle!
