I'll open things up by nominating Stars in Shadow -- for best 4x game (yes, even with Endless Space 2 on the horizon), and surprise/sleeper hit of the year.

Just saw that Master of Orion CtS wasn't on the list for 2016....don't understand and couldn't vote for it.  :-[

For 2017, i say Lord of Rigel.

You'd have nominated nuMOO?  While I agree it's turned out to be a fun game, I still think it's way too light to qualify for "Best of" in any category.

I'm looking forward to LoR too, but it's not even out yet!  :P  Did you get in on the beta or something (and therefore have an idea of how good it is)?

Can we only mention games that are already out yet? Maybe i am a dreamer but Lord of Rigel has almost all the features i want/like in a 4x...and i do hope it comes out this year. Master of Orion is not the most innovative but it is the game from 2016 i spent the most time with and had the most fun with (as did my kids)...so yeah it is our family best game of 2016  O0. Even if it was just for the fact that they brought MOO back from its grave  <:-)

Nah. Nominate whatever you want. Brant's been very upfront that these awards are purely popularity contests ;)
