Best Simulation Game of 2020

This one was very much a two horse race, between two very different types of sim game - one a very technical, life-like flight sim, the other a much more laid-back life/social sim.

The voting was surprisingly close between the two for most of the time throughout community voting, but eventually one pulled clear. Between them they got almost 80% of the combined vote (and this total would've been even higher if the staff hadn't also shown some love for Spiritfarer).

Best Shooter of 2020

Another result that was very one-sided (which I was a little bit surprised by), with the winning game managing just over 43% of the combined vote. The nearest rival managed 19%.



Well deserved win for Doom Eternal; not just the best shooter of 2020, but the best video game of 2020 period.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

hmmm



Best Action/Adventure Game of 2020

This one was close - there was a virtual tie at the end of community voting, with just 1 vote separating the eventual winner and runner-up, making the staff vote decisive.

Best Fighting Game of 2020

Fair to say this was one of the weaker categories this year. That was reflected in the fact it was the least voted on category, with less than 60% participation amongst those who submitted a voting form. There was one clear favourite though and it duly won.

Yeah, it's true. 



Hmm, TLOU2 doesn't seem to be doing well in the individual awards so far, perhaps this site won't go for it as GOTY. Is there hope for Animal Crossing to get GOTY?!

Of all things one can hope for...

In TLOU2's defense, it has only been nominated for 1 category so far and it ended up being very close according to Machina.
