2019 TechRaptor Awards Nominees

We recently ranked the past decade's 100 best games, and now it is time to look at specifically 2019. 2019 is one of the more odd years recently, as there are no clear and obvious winners that will take many of the industry's game of the year awards. While that may have been more of the case in recent years, 2019 was still full of many great games, from AAA juggernauts to indie titles that dazzled us.

Every year, we want to get you all involved in this process too. Here you can vote on the below nominees in each category. The results will be published with our own. Voting is open until the 5th.
