Spacehog1985 has an interesting choice for the game they think is a glaring omission from the nominee list. The Redditor mentions, “F****** cowards didn’t put PowerWash simulator up there, so f*** these awards” There are tons of strange simulation games, but PowerWash Simulator is by far one of the strangest, as the gameplay revolves around washing the dirt of vehicles and buildings.
While the Redditor could very well be half-joking, there’s a small chance they could be completely genuine. And if that’s the case, though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the game, it isn’t exactly a GOTY contender. But power to them for being completely unpretentious and choosing a fun and inoffensive game as one that should be on the list.
