The Untitled 2019 Alternative PC Gamer Awards

Well, that’s 2019 nicely wrapped up—and with it all of our Game of the Year Awards. But like the inevitable post-credit sequence in a Marvel movie, just because it’s over doesn’t mean it’s over. Not until we load up a congratulatory blunderbuss with celebratory scattershot and haphazardly blast a few more awards at video games.

Our alternative awards don’t work like our regular GOTYs—there’s no voting or spreadsheets or discussion among the staff. It’s a free-for-all, with uncontested picks marked for special recognition in 2019—not always in a good way—and these awards don’t even have be awarded to video games.
