Aaaaand you guessed it. Final votes still being tallied. And me liking a product is still the kiss of death for it about 50% of the time. Its been a weird mix of happiness for some of the companies and products that made it or squeaked in, and total frustration at seeing products that were in my Top 5 overall just crash n' burn. I thought I was a pretty good judge of what constitutes gaming quality, and I felt pretty well-informed about the nominees after playtesting almost 95% of the RPGs and games we had submitted (and did multiple read-throughs on the others).
Now, don't get me wrong--we are having wonderful products nominated all over the place. I'm just wishing there was a little bit more of the wonderfulness I picked out there, is all. Irs late, and I need to go to bed--things will no doubt be clearer at some point tomorrow.
