End of Year 2019: The Results!

eoy-2019

As our End of Year 2019 event comes to a close, it’s tempting to use this space to wax poetic about the good parts of 2019 one last time. But you’ve probably heard it all in a dozen other end of year lists, so instead, we’ll let the results and the community speak for themselves. We’ve organized this summary a bit differently this year - you can see the results of the polls below, and clicking on a game’s title will take you to a post with some of what our members had to say about that game. We also included a selection of quotes from the discussion threads that didn’t have voting components as well.

From all of us on the End of Year Planning Committee, thank you for participating and making this event so special! It’s always a pleasure to read through everyone’s responses and see the passion you have for the things you loved. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the event, and we encourage you to share any thoughts you might have in the feedback thread so we can make this and other events better in the future.

And finally, I personally want to shout out all of the other members of the End of Year team: @Emily, @Glorgu, @quantumdot, @slimesiren, @vehemently, and @2Mello. Thank you for all of your help putting this event on!
