PostSubject: The GNamer Forum Annual Awards 2016   Fri 30 Dec 2016 - 21:00

Ladies and gentleman, the time has come. We're at the tail end of 2016 and whilst the world has steadily crumbled around us, GNamer has remained a pleasant little corner of the Internet for all to enjoy. I think it's time we celebrate the year that was on this here forum with our annual awards!

THE FOURTH ANNUAL GNAMER FORUM AWARDS

You fine folks will have a few weeks to draft up your votes, as the cutoff will be the 22nd of January with rewards commencing on the following Sunday - so no excuses!

All awards are one vote unless stated otherwise, as always! Here are your Golden Gracklers up for grabs.

__________________________

Forum Awards

Forumite of the Year (two votes, weighted equally) - to you, this person represents GNamer at its finest. They can be said to be the beating heart of GNamer and a bastion of quality for all to look up to.

Contributor of the Year - great posts and great topics flow from this person like water from one of those pissing Cupid statues. This person works tirelessly to keep GNamer ticking over with quality #content and chat.

Funniest Forumite - arguably the most coveted of the Golden Gracklers, this award is delivered to the person who delivered the funnies on a regular basis over the last year and kept us chuckling whilst we despaired at the shitshow that was 2016 IRL.

Board of the Year - the place to be. The board where all the best threads and best chat come to play.

Topic of the Year - not counting big event threads like vote threads for this one. Which topic created in 2016 was your favourite?

Post of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - which posts impressed you the most this year? Were they funny? Informative? Posted by JayMoyles and therefore the best? Vote for your three faves.

GNamer Forum Event of the Year - by which we mean Admintendos, big events like the meet-up and GNamer podcasts.

Avatar of the Year (two votes, in order of preference) - these little pictures are our identity on this here forum, so let us know which have been your favourites this year. They can be old or new!

Signature of the Year - that little blurb that usually contains a forum-murdering Backloggery or Retro Collect link.

Tagline of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - some of our funniest moments come from our taglines. Let's celebrate the best of them. Check the tagline thread for inspiration, as all our old taglines from 2016 are there to peruse.
______________________________

Gaming Awards

Wii U Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - it's been a rough swansong for the Wii U, but there's still been plenty to enjoy. Let us know your favourites.

3DS Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - the 3DS has fared better than the Wii U, so there's plenty of great games up for your consideration this year.

Nontendo Exclusive of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - must have been released exclusively on a Nontendo system (that includes PC!)

Multiplatform Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - must have featured on at least two different platforms!

The Katie Hopkins Award for Worst Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - we've all played a stinker or two this year. Let's rip into them together.

Honourable and Dishonourable Mentions - send as many or as few as you'd like!

Common sense applies folks - must have been released in your territory in 2016, must be a full game (no DLC), you must have played it.

_____________________________

Send your votes to me via PM, natch, and I'm looking forward to reading them!

Some notes: you'll notice there's no category for Most Missed Forumite. I think we should be celebrating what's happened on the forum this year, not who's been missing. We all miss certain absentees, of course, but I think it's time this category was retired. Happy to discuss this and reinstate it if need be!

Happy voting folks!

Hooray, it's up! Grin Some brave decisions from the Jaymeister there.


I'd take out the Best Newbie award, sadly. The last time a proper new forumite visited the forum, it was August, a day after he joined. August. And he posted once. Two new forumites reached double figures, of which neither has been seen since June. I'd give it to DarrenK, but would rather see it go than limp sadly towards the finish line.

And I probably agree with the most missed forumite. This links in with the above: while our membership stays static, we'll all remember and come up with the same few names. Stu and Beemoh were great forumites, but I feel we've mourned them long enough.


I presume we're using the 'Posts Appreciation Thread' as a shortlist for posts? Otherwise that's rather a large sample to choose from! Shocked

Finally (sorry this is going on for ages!), I wouldn't be averse to people reminding me what avatars they've had this year, other than their current ones! (I've had red-eyed Snorlax, decoration-munching Sableye, and this git from Bravely Second.)

Yeah, I'm leaning towards taking out the Newbie award too, but I didn't want to cut two categories in the one year without support from you guys.

As for the post award, I didn't want to restrict it purely to the Post Appreciation Thread as some crackers haven't been nominated into that thread - happy to be swayed on this, though!

I've had Neku and Edgeworth this year for my avatars.

Nothing to stop people quoting/linking into that thread over the next three weeks! Regardless, I'll be picking from the thread because it's easier that way.

I'm going to have to agree with Balla on those two awards.

I think I had this Virtual Boy one mainly for the #Bantz due to the VR rumour for Switch, Mads in Death Stranding, Ludens the Kojima Logo, Jade from Beyond Good and Evil. I feel I've had more but not sure what.

Two more "yays" for removing the newbie award and you can consider it gone. Thumbs Up!

I've got a question on the game awards mainly the exclusives one, what's the standpoint on things like Forza Horizon 3 as if you asked 9 out of 10 people they would say it's a Xbox One exclusive but it's not it's a Xbox Anywhere title which is on Xbox One and PC (why it wasn't included in the end of year awards on metacritic). The same goes for World of Final Fantasy, most would say it's a PlayStation exclusive but is on two systems aswell PS4 and VITA, so my question does the exclusive have to be a true exclusive or can it be a platform exclusive.

I agree with both those very sensible removals.
I also trust I won't be snubbed for all the awards I deserve this year.

Great, 18th of January gives me time to actually beat the games I plan to shortlist. I'm for axing those two categories as well.

In the event of a tie *strangling noises*

Aye, the New Member of the Year Award can be lopped from the list, for my money. Thumbs Up!

I've voted and I've done like Balla and for Posts in the Post thread and on the exclusives front I've gone for platform exclusive as otherwise likes of Drunka will have nothing to vote for due Xbox One basically no longer having exclusives, that's not a dig but that is now what Xbox is a Operating System like Apple.

Also looking back at some of the threads, especially one in the Switch section and what some people wanted and what were getting is rather bang on to what two people said and the reactions to those two people from others are rather funny now.

Sorry, second-and-last reminder.  If you've had a great avatar that is not currently your avatar, please let me/us know!  Otherwise I at least will probably have forgotten it.

Possibility for an additional award?:

A fair few of us write either on Gintendo or contribute to something like the Monster Mash. While those exist outside the forum, they wouldn't exist without GNamer so perhaps a category for favorite Gintendo article, podcast/er or something along those lines?

I've suggested that in previous years but people were really lame about it.

Jays the host and I guess if he wants to add it he can and then whoever does it next year wants to take it out they can.

I still see Gintendo as something separate from the forum and I was planning on this being a celebration of everything that's happened on the forum itself. Again, happy to be swayed but I'm erring on the side of keeping it as its own unique thing.

Oh, and the newcomer award has been obliterated, as requested.

I think that's a reasonable way of viewing it.

I've sent mine over already, although it seems to be stuck in my outbox. I'm guessing that's because it's a long post, but you might want to check you've got space in your inbox just in case Jay.

Nah - from what I can gather, PMs stay in your outbox until the recipient checks their inbox. It's come through loud and clear. Thumbs Up!

Is this getting stickied, gents?

Also, a quick question.  The awards are for 3DS and Wii U GotY, not 3DS/Wii U Exclusive(otY).  Does that mean that one could vote for, say, Axiom Verge in both Wii U and multiplat?  (Also AV was released on the PS4 and computers in 2015 but everything else in 2016, adding an extra layer of complexity...)

I voted for a multiplatform game in one of those two and Jay didn't say anything back about it as I took as juts games on those system that year, where I took PS4 exclusive as a PlayStation exclusive.

I wonder if we will get a Wii U award in 2017?

Well not everyone will make the switch as some have weddings to pay for, and the Wii U will still get some game like Zelda and hmm.

Maybe other Nintendo which is Wii U and Mobile is a thing next year.
