Outstanding Achievement in Game Design and Game of the Year nominations for PUBG?

...you freaking what mate?

Considering by the end of the year you’ll have PUBG clones or PUBG modes in every FPS I’d say it warrants some accolades. Game of the Year it is not though.

An accolades for "being popular" maybe, but quality of game design though? That right there is comedy.

Devils Advocate: It introduced/popularised a game mechanic that wasn’t seen before.

Plenty games win awards not for inventing gameplay but simply popularising it.

I don’t have any subjective opinions on the game itself just voicing my understand why such a game may get recognition from the Industry.

Doesn’t mean I agree with any nominations.
