    I reckon any even slightly modern PC would play that game in its current form, of course!

    Results! Thanks to all who voted. :)
    If two games are listed for a category, it indicates a tie.

    Interesting fact: No winners for Spiderman (and nobody even voted for it as best game on PS4). After how heavily it featured in GOTY discussions over Christmas, I thought it was unusual that it didn't even register with Boardsies.

    Thanks again Mr. E

    I sent the results onto Cory Balrog and he said he was completely overwhelmed. Sent a pic of himself after reading your post.

    More people need to play obra dinn because the game design and story awards going to anything else is a sin.

    I think it's a really enjoyable game, well worth playing. But it does have its flaws which probably lost it a good few points with people. Either way though, in a year when God Of War came out, it was never going to compete.

    God of War, deserves all the praise it's getting. Truly a masterpiece imo, and so excited to see what they do next.

    Also very happy to see No Mans Sky getting some love for once. Maybe it didn't have competition, I can't remember, but good to see it's getting the recognition it deserves, and Hello Games are showing how to claw back from bust to make what is now a really good, very big game.




  • Thought Octopath should have gotten best music!

    Yeah. I love celeste but the soundtrack isn't octopath level.
