We laughed. We cried. We fought through adversity. We accomplished something. This thread is the place to share your most memorable stories and impactful moments from games in 2018. Maybe it was something you pulled off that made you feel great about yourself. Maybe the game’s clockwork systems interacted just so, and something incredible happened. Or maybe it was a completely scripted moment that was deeply thought-provoking, side-splittingly hilarious, or just hit you right in the feels. At their best, these moments can stick with us for years.
There is no one true way to experience a game, and we don’t want to downplay the value of emergent storytelling. As such, this category will be discussion only, with no nominations or voting taking place. We hope this encourages folks to share stories that are more personal and specific to what they enjoy about games, rather than focusing on moments that might have a broader appeal.
Given the spoiler-heavy nature of this topic, we’d like to remind everyone to please be courteous and blur your spoilers, annotating what game (and roughly what part of the game, if applicable) the spoiler is from. That way other folks reading through the thread have the opportunity to experience that moment just like you did. Thank you!
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.
