Best RPG of 2020

A pretty packed line-up (there was also Xenoblade Chronicles, which narrowly missed out on a spot in the shortlist), but a fairly comfortable win in the end for the victor, which was 13% clear of its nearest rival.

Best Puzzle Game of 2020

This is one where the community winner did not win the combined vote (it got runner-up). In fact in the end the top three games were all within 0.8% of one another, making this one of the closest results (but not the closest, which is still to come).

Hehe, interesting. And I would've expected differently, with Clubhouse being the community favorite. And hell, three games that close shows a good quality overall. Congrats to all the games.

And you tease an even closer competition. Would be epic if that turns out to be the overall GOTY.

Overall was certainly close - the top three games are separated by 1.5% there, but that's not the closest one.



Best Strategy Game of 2020

The winner takes it with just over 22% of the vote. Not exactly an overwhelming endorsement, but that's because a lot of games received 6 or 7% of the vote in this category.

Wasteland 3 was amazing!

Looks like 2020 was a good year for puzzle games.  I don't have any of these games yet, but I will likely get both Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 and Clubhouse Games at some point.  Both look like good games.



Best VR Game of 2020

The most one-sided of all the awards this year. The winner claimed almost 60% of the combined vote and was 44% ahead of its nearest rival.

I think Valve shot this one out of the park. Probably a lot of games in the future will take notes.

Best Racing Game of 2020

The final genre award and the closest result out of all of the awards this year. The winner received 28.965% of the vote and the runner-up received 28.935%. This is another where the community winner didn't win the overall award.

Open categories next. Eight awards left, and in all but one case the community's winner takes home the award.
