Introducing The 50 (+1) Shortlisted Games For Gamer Malaya And Gamer Matters GOTY Awards 2019

It’s award season! Since 2017, Gamer Malaya and Gamer Matters have run our own brand of game awards, celebrating the great games (and ridicule some we are disappointed with) that we encounter this year. Whether we played them all or just watch some playthrough on YouTube matters not,  these are the games that defined the year for us.
