Crowdfunded, Early Access, and unfinished are all the same thing. None of them have reached gold status. None of them should even be nominated for any kind of big league awards. Imagine if a movie like The Room won Oscar for Best Picture. What sort of quality bar would that set?

If you're saying that Divinity: Original Sin 2 didn't deserve to at least be nominated for a best RPG, just because it was crowdfunded, I don't know what to say man, other than that perhaps you should look at yourself and realize that your hatred of crowdfunding is a bit over the top. Trying to compare that to "The Room" winning an award is absurd. One is a masterly crafted product, the other is... well... "The Room".

P.S. "Oh, hi Mark."

All the nominations and awards for Divinity: Original Sin 2 happened months after its September 14, 2017 release. (source 1, source 2)

For clarity, D:OS2 aside, I'm saying I don't want an early access, crowdfunding, or unreleased game (not Gold) being nominated for or given awards. It sets a precedent for publishers and gives them carte blanche to start moving into that area. Remember when DLC was a novelty? Since then it's morphed into Season Passes (and I know how much we all love that format. /s) Why do I have to explain this? As consumers and veterans gamers, you all should understand the ramifications of where this could lead.

Again, I cannot wait until PUBG falls off the list. The sooner, the better.

P.S. The reference to The Room winning an Oscar for Best Picture has nothing to do with Divinity: Original Sin 2 (so you can relax). It means Hollywood judges informing viewers and those working in the industry where they've set the quality bar. In like fashion, giving an award to an unreleased game like PUBG sets quality bars for the ENTIRE gaming industry.

P.P.S. You dropped your water bottle.

He went from supporting almost every kickstarter and giving CIG nearly a grand for Star Citizen to being against all of them. Take what he says or does with a grain of salt.

That's WHY I can talk. I have costly experience with those types of games. Do you? I didn't think so Windbags McGee.

P.S. "He went from supporting almost every Kickstarter." I think you got that piece of pyrite from the magical land of Make Believe.
