End of Year 2018: Vote for your favs!

End of Year III: Vote for your favs!

Hello everyone! We’ve been hard at work monitoring the nominations and tallying them up, watching you all make strong cases for your favorite games of 2018. Thanks to everyone who participated, from everyone on the Waypoint forum moderation team.

Now then, for Phase II: the voting. For each category we’ve taken the top 5 games (top 10 for Favorite Game) with the most amount of nominations and placed them in their respective polls for you to vote on. In the case of ties in the number of nominations, we opted to include additional options in the polls rather than break the ties up.

You will get one vote per category. Please note that each poll is a separate post in this thread, not their own threads. The helpful links below can make it easier to navigate. The polls will close on January 12th, so make your votes while this thread is fresh in your mind!

The individual threads for each category will remain open, so feel free to continue sharing your thoughts in the category threads if you still have them! You can find links to all of them here.
