Unveiling the Gaming Winners | HBB Reviews Awards 2019

While not the raging opus achievement 2018 was, 2019 has proven to be a magnificent year for gaming as a whole as decent to even magnificent releases were sprinkled handily throughout the entire year. And with the jurisdiction of the HBB Reviews Staff, a total of seven different games were honored with nominees in one or two of the gaming categories at the HBB Reviews Awards 2019.
