    Sadly, this year I didn’t play many of these listed games (yet), so my judgment might not be perfect. But for best RPG I would say “Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire” without hesitation.

    Game of the year should be Monster Hunter World, though I suspect many console gamers would line up to promote God of War .. because you know, exclusive games might be more appealing to some die hard fans of Sony..

    Also, how Celeste made it into this list ???
