    ZU Game of the Year 2017 - Nominations
    • We're nearing the end of 2017, so it's of course going to be time to talk game of the year! It's still a little early yet, but I figured it would be a good idea to get the ball rolling on this a little early.

      We're changing things up this year. In the previous years we ran the awards with a series of categories, nominations, followed by voting in each category. This year we're going to change it up and do a bracket instead. So, basically what I need from you guys is to submit games released in this calendar year in your region to help me form a list for this year. I'll leave this open for roughly a week from today (November 22nd), at which point I'll take the list, go behind the scenes and make up a bracket, and we can get down to eliminating some of these games on our journey to find the best overall game of the year.

      Sooooo, with that said, yes. I need games. I have made up a prelim list to get us started:
