The Source Game Awards 2017 – Voting now open!

The Video Game Awards (VGA) were last week and with the end of 2017 approaching many sites are beginning to give their picks for the best games of 2017. We at Source Gaming will be doing this as well in a variety of ways as December goes on but we also wanted a way to include the community. So, we decided to go in the direction of a public vote, in a similar style to the VGAs, where everyone could decide on who deserves to win the Source Game Awards! The nominations for each of these categories were decided on by staff members and Patrons (if that is something you are interested in then check the Donation tab at the top of the site) over on our discord. We had a variety of categories and we’ve narrowed it down to three choices each. Voting closes on the evening of December 18th GMT and results will be shared on December 22nd. Remember to only vote once and the link to the poll is in the image below. The poll covers all the categories but if you want to see the nominees first then scroll a bit further down and see.
