So we're still in the second half of the year and while this question is kind of early to ask, do you all think PUBG will be a contender for Giant Bomb's GOTY awards or even other outlets' award shows? It certainly has gotten plenty of attention all over the internet, especially on Giant Bomb with the countless Murder Island streams we've gotten. However, this is an Early Access game which while its out and released for people to play, its not a complete 1.0 game and the developers are making improvements overtime. Maybe because PUBG is in Early Access and if it doesn't get a 1.0 release this year, it might not be considered for GOTY at least here on GB but the crew may have a big video dedicated to PUGB to end the year.
Now if it gets a 1.0 release or if the crew decides F it they'll include it in GOTY deliberations, I think it has a great chance to win some awards. PUBG is a lock for best multiplayer, will probably be in a heated debate between it and Horizon Zero Dawn for best debut and will likely win best moment for whichever GB personality wins a chicken dinner on a Murder Island stream. Also I've read posts on NeoGaf and other places claiming PUBG has GOTY locked up here, but I'm not so sure in a year that we've gotten BOTW, Horizon and maybe Super Mario Odyssey or Wolfenstein II being big players for best game of 2017.
