For your consideration: XYZZY-eligible Writing of 2016 - an IFDB Poll

by MathBrush
RSS Feed

This is for suggesting games released in 2016 which you think might be worth considering for Best Writing in the XYZZY awards.

This is not a zeroth-round nomination. The category will still be text-entry, and games not mentioned here will remain eligible. This is not an official list. The point of poll is partly to suggest games that others might want to check out, partly as your own reminder for when XYZZY season comes around.

This isn't intended as a straw poll; please don't upvote games already on the list.
