Here's What Won

Here's your handy pocket guide to the winners and nominees for Giant Bomb's Game of the Year 2018.

Congratulations! You've made it to the end of the week. Here we are, poised on the edge of the year. Exciting, isn't it? What will 2019 hold? I'm hoping for some good things, we'll see if it all pans out.

By now, many of you have already listened to our entire 2018 Game of the Year deliberations process. Thanks for checking it out! You're now welcome to see this list below, which is all the categories, nominees, and winners.

If you haven't heard any of the deliberations and you ended up on this page because someone posted some kind of "I can't believe they gave Award X to Game Y" screed elsewhere on the internet, reading the list is pretty much a tenth of the overall picture. You should probably dig into the deliberations if you want to know more.

We'll be back next week.

Oh, I'll put a couple of big images here or something, in case you want to turn back and not see the winners just yet.
