For Your Consideration: Games from 2013 that should be nominated for the XYZZY Awards - an IFDB Poll

by Molly

There were a lot of great games released in 2013, and now that the XYZZYs are coming up, it seems like a very good idea to take a poll of all the games from last year people would like to see nominated.

The management has asked that we follow two rules: try to vote for a wide number of games (even/especially the games you aren't personally nominating), and don't vote for a game once it's already on the poll. Have fun, and remember to check the three sister polls for the specific awards: Best PC, Best NPC, and Best Puzzle.
