It's finally here! We're bringing back the GamingOnLinux GOTY Awards we did a few years ago, so it's time to get nominating.
How it usually works is we have this dedicated GOTY Page, you pick a category and then search for a game in the box at the top to nominate it in that category. You can nominate as many as you wish, as long as they fit within the category.
Once enough time has passed we will then lock down nominations, clear up any in the wrong place and open it for voting in around a week or two.
- What if I don't find what I want? There's links to submit the game/software directly to us below the search box in each category.
- Do Proton/Steam Play or Google Stadia games count? No, the whole point of this is to appreciate those putting time and effort into supporting Linux as a desktop platform. That's not up for discussion, sorry and comments arguing it will be removed.
- When will nominations close and voting start? February 1st.
- Why is this for 2019 - it's 2020? We run ours when 2019 is actually over, to allow all games to be in for a chance to win a category. It makes it fair.
- x released in 2018 for Windows and 2019 for Linux, does it count? Yes, go by the Linux release date. If in doubt, use the search to see if we have an article on it.
