2017 techraptor awards nominees

Below, you'll find the 2017 TechRaptor Awards Nominees across each category, as well as links to each of the reviews we published for them.

It's the time of year for every publication to bring out arbitrary lists and attempt to whittle down the hundreds of games released this year to the "best." Now it's our turn, where you will find the awards categories and nominees for each award. We want to get you in on the action too of course, so the Readers' Choice vote has returned again.

You can vote along with staff to choose the Readers' Choice winner of each category from our nominees.UPDATED: Reader's Choice Voting is now closed. Thanks to all who participated!

Staff submitted nominations for each category, which were then voted on by the entire staff to give us the final nominees you see below.
