RPGFan Games of the Year 2017
« on: December 28, 2017, 11:38:40 AM »
Was just about to vote for the RPGFan Games of the Year 2017, but noticed that one of the most important contenders is not mentioned at all. The winner of PC Gamer's GOTY award, Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Fortunately, every category includes the "Other" option - any game you feel deserves an award that we've left off the list, please write in. (And don't worry, we'll make sure to resolve any spelling differences so that games get all of the write-ins they deserve.)

On that note - every year, we get a number of write-ins for "None" in categories where someone didn't care to pick any choice. You don't need to do that - no questions are required, so if you don't want to vote for one, you can just leave it blank. :)

I knew that, but what I'm curious about is the why. What method is used to select which games are listed, and which are not? This may just be the Larian loyalist in me talking, but I'm actually really curious for the omission of OS2, as it is already recognized by a multitude of sites as either a GOTY game or at least GOTY hopeful.

I don't think many of us played it, simple as that. Deliberation was open for about two months and nobody thought to add it. No conspiracy here, simply so many hours in the day. I'd love to play it as Chris Avelone was involved, but this year has been ridiculously busy.
