So, it's the last day of 2021, time to look back and see the highest scored things on the site this year!
There are no prizes, just this commemorative post that you could, if you want the pride, print and stick to your wall. We won't judge.
Best Comment of 2021
At #3 we have a tie at 28 upvotes, and both are on the same post, talking about how a control scheme is similar to launching a nuke! Thanks to @Thomas Weller and @Xan for this apt comparison!
At #2, edging out #3 by only one vote (29), we have @SF. that gives a few explanations about what is an Any% speedrun.
And at #1, we got a comment that demolished any other comment on the website this year with 50 (!) upvotes. Its adding a 50 minute explanation video to an answer about one of the biggest news story in gaming, Dream's Minecraft Speedrun. Congratulations to @luk2302, seems lots of users loved to hear this more detailed explanation to the dream problem.

Best Question of 2021
At #3 we got, at 49 score, @BrapPleaseHelp asking Is there a way to hide that you own a game in the steam store?. We don't know that you wanted to hide, but now lots of people know you want to hide something! :p
At #2, we got the question that created our #3 comment with 51 score, How to end the game in 2-player Lemmings (Super Nintendo), with no "Nuke" option? Hope your Lemmings decimating needs were fulfilled @LHM!
And at #1, we got @RedFlame0627 asking Where did the Goombas come from? Did you switch from button mushrooms to shiitake mushrooms in your cooking since?

Best Answer from 2021
At #3, we got @Chengarda giving a great and quick explanation of what is a skinner box. Its a great read to know how loot boxes are made to make you spend more in videogames. Those 78 upvotes are well deserved!
At #2, we have @Paul Z coming in with his insider knowledge to help exorcise an Xbox. 92 upvotes is a great score to keep demons our of our consoles!
And at #1, we have @Joshua Bizley cracking the 100 score bar with a score of 101 by coming to the rescue of a user that seemingly lost his whole Steam Library! Sure that user got back his library, but he didn't tell.
