Papers & Paychecks didn't get nominated again!. I'm really getting tired of this crap where imaginary games never get nominated! Sure, game like Star Wars have great production budgets, and look & feel really good. But what about those game that took nights awake, just thinking of, never published?

What about that great imaginary board game Last One Night Stand on Earth (the earth ends at midnight, and the players are ... well you know). Or that hopes-to-one-day-be-a-classic Deeces & Meeces. And, how could we ever forget, or remember, Star Craps, where your in a star ship rolling dice and making bets that you hit the other player.

Cu-do's to the above great games for being published, but I know others out there have their own imaginary games they'd like to see nominated. So speak out in celebration of real possible winners above, and let us hear what imaginary game you missed seeing on the list!

My vote's always been for Perfect Experience Roleplaying System - Otherworld Nations Adventuring League, by the OTRPG company. Nothing else has ever compared.

In the same vein, I'd like to congratulate this year's spate of fictitious entities on their nominations. Never have a finer group of people had absolutely no chance of any sort of acknowledgement in their field. Imagine the joy of the current occupants of the Konami Digital Entertainment Inc or Games Workshop Design Group buildings at seeing the award in their current manager's office commemorating the work of a bunch of people who have since found better jobs!
