You already know our Game of the Year from 2018, and you’ve been called to vote for your own just yesterday. Yet, there is an even more pressing question we need to answer before the year ends, and we need your help.
Who are the best waifu and the best husbando 2018’s crowded gaming landscape? Video games are full of handsome, charming, interesting, strong, funny, and likable characters, or maybe you prefer dark and moody villains, but who are your actual favorites?
In order to answer this difficult question, we ask you to please take part in our survey below (or click here if you’re on mobile).
All you need to do is to write down the names of your favorite by Sunday, Dec. 30 at 11:59 PM EST to vote, and the results will be announced shortly afterward. If you think there is a chance of confusion (for instance between two characters with the same name), please mention the game or franchise as well, for instance, “Peach from Smash Bros.”
Do keep in mind that in order to be eligible, your votes should be cast for characters included in games released in 2018, no matter for which platform or in which region.
In order to limit votes to one per person and avoid spam, you’ll need to log in with a Gmail account to complete the survey. We’re aware that this isn’t ideal, but if you don’t have one, they’re quick and easy to make. This is the best way we have to keep things as fair as possible.
You have time until Monday, Dec. 31 at 11:59 PM EST to vote, and the results will be announced shortly afterward. You can also alter your vote until the deadline, in case you change your mind.
This is a good chance not only to let your voice heard about your favorite characters this year but also to honor the writers and artists who created them. So get voting, and feel free to let us know about your preference in the comments!
