Hey all, it's that time of the year again! I need your help to put together our GOTY nominations! Here are some things to remember:
1. Even if someone else already nominated a game, nominate it again! It helps me put the final shortlists together to know what stuff is the most popular. 2. Nominate as many games as you want for a category! Just try to keep it stuff that you personally actually care about or really think deserves to make the list, so the lists don't get flooded. 3. If you don't participate in the nominations, you don't get to complain about the final voting lists!
If you forget for all was released in 2021 check below, but my lists are not exhausive, so they are probably missing some key stuff, especially in the eShop categories. But remember, these are just my lists, even if you see a game in my list (or anyone else's), list it again in your nominations!

Unfortunately I can't really help with the eShop ones since I barely pay attention to it. There's just such a sea of garbage on the eShop, it isn't worth wading through just for a chance to find something decent.
