It must be confusing to some folks seeing "in 2016" listed for all the games there. Do they have different ones "for 2016"?

Fallout 4 is definitely my favourite game of the year but am actually surprised my 2nd fave game, The Witcher 3 got the snub? I thought it was generally held in higher regard?? Great to see JC getting a Fellowship award too!
