    - No more than 3 Nominations per person, please.
    - This is for the Best PC Game (Download Only - No boxed release!) in 2016.
    - Must apply to a game that was released on or after January 1st 2016 (search for the game on and look at the "Release Data" menu item for a release date).
    - Top 6-8 will go forward for the Vote (exact number dependent on number of nominations received).
    - This is the first group of nominations (out of 3 groups). The survey for voting will be up after the 3rd group has closed.
    - Not sure if it's retail or download-only? Look it up on Amazon (.com or - if it has a boxed PC release, it's retail (and doesn't qualify for this category)

    The group is Download only, Sean. All those games were available in retail (doom and overwatch anyway?)

    I honestly don't know which ones have been available in shops and which haven't. I've not gone into a game store in 3 years.

    I assumed Hitman being episodic wasn't released in Physical format.
    The other lads have listed Gears of War 4, Overwatch and Dark Souls 3. Were they not retail ?

    (Kind of why I suggested maybe having both as Retail/Download for PC as 1 section.)

    I don't agree. So many great indie games came out this year and they'd be drowned out by the likes of Doom and Dishonored 2 if both categories were combined.

    If any category NEEDS the distinction between retail and download only, it's PC.

    I've added some helpful links to the OP. :o
