I predict that they will horribly overlook Steam Trading Cards in the "Idle Experience" category.

It warms my heart to see such a small game like Contradiction: Spot the Liar! win an award.

Really appreciate that my Goty Witcher 3 got on the list, given how little everyone played of it.

look, I love Contradiction, but I'm kind of offended that it got past so many real-ass video games. Like, I guess I shouldn't, it does mean a lot to this website, and it's great, but out of some of the stuff this year that was just soo interesting and engaging that some of these guys actually played through, I'm befuddled how much of a pass it got.

Brad: "You guys [Austin and Vinny] have a steep hill to climb convincing me to put Life is Strange on the list over Witcher 3 considering you only played 3/5s of the game."

Nobody in the Giant Bomb offices finished Witcher 3, either, as far as I can tell. It doesn't sound like anyone even made it past the halfway mark <.<

I don't think either game should be on the list because nobody finished them.
