“Game of the Year is a coveted award crowned by major outlets at the end of each year. We thought it was time that we got the gaming community more involved, since they are who we’re representing,” said Family & Content Executive Editor, Dayna Eileen. “CGM is made up of journalists from every corner of the gaming industry, and we all started out first and foremost as fans. We want to make sure that gamer’s voices are heard too, Game of the Year shouldn’t just be awarded by the media.
