"The most important vote in a generation," political parties will often crow during an election campaign. What they don't say, however, is that they're really referring to the final phase of the Pocket Gamer People's Choice.

As the only category of the PG Mobile Games Awards (now in their fourth year and, as ever, run by our industry-focused sibling site, PocketGamer.biz) that is nominated for and voted on by the players, there's more at stake here than ensuring the national rail network runs on time or the local water supply remains unpolluted.

We previously asked you to nominate your favourite pocket gaming experience of 2020 and thousands of you shared your thoughts - thank you - which made the process of determining the shortlist both fun and educational.

A bit of everything

Given the volume of entries, the 20 finalists we've ended up with offer a gorgeously vast gaming landscape in both approach and genre, from reworked casual classics to retro revivals, awesome arcade action to serious strategic simulation.  

And because this award is all about you, your next mission is to pick the game you think most deserves the win. So look through the list, consider your candidate, and then cast your vote.

We'll keep the action going until June 30th, at which point everything will get tallied up and ready for the winner unveiling during the PG Mobile Games Awards ceremony on July 20th (pandemic permitting).

Happy voting.
