Console and computer-based video games, in a way, are simple. They often allow us to jump right into the action and provide a variety of systems at our relatively immediate access. Talking about them as a whole for the purpose of awards is easy too, due to their shared technological basis. But there are worlds of games and play out there (even in video games) that use different means of engagement, or even operate in fundamentally different ways. It is impossible to do them total justice, but this category is a place to discuss and highlight your favorite VR, mobile, tabletop, pen and paper and board games.
Did you find something worth putting on the headset for? Or maybe a mobile game made you ignore your console? Or perhaps you had a killer campaign, or played a session of a storytelling game that brought you to tears? This is the place to discuss those games and your experiences and also to discover new games that expand the possibilities games as a whole.
This category is not involved in our nomination/voting process and instead is all about discussing your favs!
Be sure to check the Q&A section below if you have questions, otherwise feel free to reach out to one of us! We hope you enjoy this event and we’re excited to see what sorts of discussion each category inspires!
Q: End of Year? What's that?
A: I’m glad you asked! Just head over to our pinned topic if you need a catch up! You can also find details on the process for the event here.
Q: What is eligible to be discussed?
A: Though we’re still largely looking for discussion of things that released in 2018, given that this is a discussion thread separate from the nomination process we’re happy to be a little more lax on items that might fall into a grey area. You’re free to use your own judgement with that, and to reach out to us if there’s anything you’re not sure of.
