    My first reaction upon reading this was similar to many above, but all of the analogies to MVP, gold medals, and the Nobel Prize are off in one important aspect: This is just a nomination, not an actual award. Supremacyking2 is closest to the mark:

    The awards ceremony is held on 18 November, so the award won't actually be given until after Civ6 has been released. Of course, this doesn't change the fact that people are still voting now, but if Civ6 turns out to be an unmitigated disaster, chances are it will drop precipitously in the polls.

    Ideally, the award would cover a year-long period that starts with the end of the previous voting period and ends at the end of the current voting period. Either that or the award ceremony should be moved to the beginning of next year.

    I'm not saying it's not problematic, I'm just saying that it does make a certain sense, and it's not nearly as bad as Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Can we wait until later to vote?

    Can you imagine if this vote were taking place before No Man's Sky was released, and how many would have voted out of the hype :goodjob:

    Hopefully the third world war will go like this: the winner will be the one that has drafted the most original invasion plans.

    Ooh! I've had my eye on that. How does it compare to its ancestors (Myst, Riven, etc)?

    As long as MOO or WOWS doesn't get it I'm happy.

    Undertale is a bit over a year old now, so it's also kind of a mystery how that made it in.
