This year, we’re highlighting four people who combined playing games with activism in their hopes of making the gaming world—or really, just the world overall—a better place.

So were they only considering activists as part of their criteria, or...?

So 2 Sims 'players' sponsored by EA.
One lady who creates her own table top and plays Animal Crossing.
Plus an 'activist' that calls people with a GTX 1080 poor

Even as far as activism goes 3 of these are bad choices

Of course Kotaku would be too afraid to acknowledge Kyuuji’s greatness.

kicking off 2021 with the nightmarish thought of getting trapped in a conversation with any of those four people.

Even for kotaku this is some shit,

I feel like the gamer of the year should be the regular ass gamers that play more than just sports games and call of dooty but don't feel a need to like, make it a lifestyle or whatever

Kotaku is just pandering to their 5 remaining readers and dangling some clickbait.

I don't think they'll make it through 2021.
