    i think that if a site or whatever labels it goty in something then the publishers resell it as a goty edition (all dlc included)

    Special / limited editions: are retail games that have either extra content or DLC, added merchandise or different packaging. Usually released at the same time as the normal retail version of the game on the release date.

    GOTY Editions: are games that usually have all the past DLC content included with a different cover or case, months or a year after the game was first sold at retail.

    If a game wins an award from somewhere for being recognized as GOTY and has various DLC packs then they usually release a GOTY version. However, for games that don't win that award but do have various DLC packs, they often get released as ultimate or complete editions like what happened in the case of Fallout: New Vegas, L.A. Noire, and Dragon Age: Origins.

    When mama and papa have conceived alot of different children (DLCs) and sold them to strangers (gamers who knows nothing about how their action will shape the unforgiving gaming future) they will for the last time conceive a special child (GOTY) that will be worth more than any other predecessor special children. The parents will die after that.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Games that have DLCs that in one way or another change the game or make it significantly longer.

    If the game got great ratings, sold well, and had a ton of content released (or at least some of it), it'll get a GOTY Edition.

    Well it needs to be critically acclaimed, sell well, and have enough content to release a new version.

    ^This.

    There are really no set 'rules' at all. It's up to the publisher.

    any game with a bunch of dlc can get a goty edition, even if it doesnt get a goty award, sometimes they call it ultimate edition or complete edition but they all mean the same thing, bethesda is fond of goty editions for their games, other companies not so much
