Evolving predictions of GoTY nominees 2017

I'd like to cover what I believe to be the top candidates for game of the year 2017. As games come out this list has the potential to change and to evolve. These selections are from what I have seen, heard and/or experienced this year. Also seeing as how many of these are games that I have not played or have not yet had the opportunity to play, I am also basing these choices off of reception, anticipation and popularity.

Game Value: Remastered?

There have been so many remasters since the release of the Xbox One and Playstation 4. I don’t think a console gen has had nearly as many remasters as this current gen. With such huge titles getting remastered, such as Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Grand Theft Auto V, Batman: Return to Arkham, The Last of Us, and Gears of War Ultimate edition (to name a few), is there room for games that we’ve already had the chance to enjoy in the past to join our constantly growing video game libraries?
