RPGFan Games of the Year 2019: Category Awards

It's here: Our final word on the best that 2019 had to offer.

01.12.20 - 6:43 PM


After extensive staff votes, discussions, and preparation, we're excited to finally be able to present our 2019 Games of the Year!

Following up on yesterday's post for our Games of the Year Editors' Awards, today we have the meatiest part of the feature: Our overall Category Awards. You may think you know what won in certain categories, like Best Traditional RPG or Best Strategy RPG... and, well, you'd probably be right there. But there are some legitimate surprises this time around, so be sure to check everything out.

As always, we're also revealing your choices, as the results of our Games of the Year Readers' Choice voting are revealed on every page of the awards. See how your fellow RPGFan readers voted. Some years, these mirror many of our own picks, but there was more variety and shake-ups this time — probably because 2019 really did feature a great variety of worthwhile gaming.

But enough of that: Saunter vaguely forward and read our final word on The Games of the Year for 2019!
