Final Results: 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2019

Time has been a short commodity as I'm trying to make a final push on my dissertation (anyone looking for a Computer Science PhD with experience in the aerospace industry, AI, machine learning, and supercomputing?).

A recent upgrade to Ubuntu Cosmic Cuttlefish rendered (pun intended, since that's what I'm using to render the generated SVGs) the calls to the ribbon generator through Inkscape broken, so it took a little more debugging than past years.

As a result, after much delay, here are the final results for the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2019.

I'll update this with links to all the categories soonish.
