It’s the end of the year and that means it GOTY (Game of the Year) time is here. Award shows are subjective and always cause for a healthy debate. This year was an ok year for gaming IMO but not as exciting as last year. We got some good games though.

There are a number of categories that the best games will compete for but there’s only one award that matters. GAME OF THE YEAR. The list of nominees are up and fan voting is available. You can vote by going to https://thegameawards.com/nominees and casting your vote.
