Alternative Awards are the new alternative facts.







But no, worthy winners and a sneaky good new category.

...to be fair my post would've been funnier if Drunka hadn't just posted beforehand with a surprisingly modest acceptance without me noticing. Embarrassed

That was poor timing!
I don't think it's fair to say I have a big ego when I am genuinely this excellent.

Let's talk about games, GNamer.

GNamer's Games of the Year 2016 (12 total ballots, although some categories were skipped and some only had one or two votes submitted in a category)



It was a pretty decent year for games in 2016, all told. Sure, the Wii U had a bit of a stinker, but the 3DS held strong and there were a plethora of polished titles to peruse on other platforms. Let's take a gander at your favourites.

First off...

The Titanic Award for Wii U Game of the Year 2016



Poor Wii U. Left behind with all the hype for the forthcoming Switch, and with very few games released to try and bolster its sales. Still, there were a few titles on Nintendo's ailing home console that you enjoyed, so let's celebrate them.

Podium placer!:
 

Runner-Up!:
 

Winner!:
 

Tried Their Best:
 

I say!:
 

Moving on!

The "That Guy from Back to the Future II" Award for 3DS Game of the Year 2016



Whilst the Wii U waned, the 3DS thrived. I'm sure many thought the 3DS would decline with the Switch on its way, but considering this is the most voted for category in our gaming awards, it's clear that's not true. Let's look at why that was:

Bronze:
 

Silver:
 

Gold:
 

Participation Medals:
 

I say!:
 

Another!

The NGage Award for Nontendo Exclusive of the Year 2016



This category's a bit sparse, considering a lot of games showed up on other platforms. But there were still some bangers you could only find on one machine, so let's look and see what those are.

Third:
 

Second:
 

Winner:
 

...And the rest.:
 

I say...:
 

And another!

The Annual Sports Release Award for Multiplatform Game of the Year 2016



...I can't think of anything witty here. Here's your results! Laughing

3:
 

2:
 

1:
 

Loved, but not enough.:
 

I say!:
 

Right, I need a break! I'll not be able to put up any results posts tomorrow, but join us Friday for your worst games alongside your honourable and dishonourable mentions!

Right, I assume that's Muss calling me out to play dumb steam cart racers. I'll have a look tomorrow.

Can't argue too much with most of that, but seriously: Look at that Glavenus then look at that sandcastle. Sort it out.

The Witness isn't a exclusive and I think the issue with both Nontendo awards, is thier is to much to pick from.

Ooooooooft! Good work there, Jay! Thumbs Up! I asked for all the comments, and my man, you more than delivered. Fantastic stuff. (I won't even begrudge you for missing out on my 'brilliant' tropical/topical Yungoos comment.)

That AA6 even placed was quite something considering the other 3DS games released this year and this forum's preferences, so I'm happy to see that. Smile The Wii U, meanwhile, continues to be dead. (Also I made a mistake - it was Scullion who slated Coffin Dodgers, not Drunka, I'm getting it confused with that terrible Grim Reaper game he reviewed for Gintendo. Embarrassed )

Glad somebody picked up on my choice of similar .GIFs.  Wink

To be fair, the person who voted for The Witness did say it was an exclusive when he played it. Besides, it's one vote - I'm a pedant but not colossally so.

Fuuuuck, I chopped off the last comment of each game like twenty times when formatting this - I'll get it added back in.

I was actually being genuine there! Embarrassed No begrudging meant, that's a corker of a post.  (Even better now, natch... Wink )

Quote :
It's a very ordinary, average Olympics game that is overall quite missable. And the third best Wii U game of 2016. Fuck right off.

Winner. Thumbs Up!

I genuinely thought FFXV was a PS4 exclusive, mind blown.

Good results so far, I just keep forgetting to actually post to say this...

Might as well of been when it was a 80/20 split.

@Jay if timed games were allowed then I may have given Firewatch a nod, in the exclusive category.

I was also thinking last night on the Nontendo Exclusive, it is basically PS4 and PC games and how many games do those get. When I did my look at PlayStation 2017, I narrowed a list down to 30 games, I'm looking forward to and I didn't even have likes of Gran Turismo Sport on the first draft as I don't care about racing games.

That is a lot of games to narrow down and how many of them do we actually play as you look at games we finished, playing etc it often isn't a exclusive.

Well, I wanna play FFXV so I'm glad it isn't an exclusive!
I only had one game, Pony Island, which I could vote for in this category at time of writing. I would now go and add in Recore, not that it would do much.

Right, no! The integrity of these awards has been compromised!! CROOKED MOYES.

Let Muss look after this award instead, he is the nontendo exclusive of the year. SMART

That's what I'm saying if you don't play a load on PC (Wouldn't Binding Love count?) and the Xbox now seeming to be moving away from exclusives, it is hard to vote and for myself, if I play all 30 games on my PlayStation 2017 piece then that is a lot of games to narrow down to 3.

There have been some ace 3DS games this year, haven't there? I am well chuffed with its Top 3. Cool The poor Wii U, though. It's very much a goner, meaning next year's Wii U GOTY vote will be something of a strange one. Razz

Also, can you really vote for a game that you haven't played at all? I struggle to vote for games I haven't beaten... Embarrassed

I can only echo what Zero is saying about 3ds and it's games, there's still plenty I want to pick up as well like Picross 3d, Rhythm paradise megamix - oh and I've been meaning to give the Ace attorney games a proper go as well. Also as much as it pains me to say it I sort of expected Pokemon to pip Monster Hunter to the top spot but the inside scoop is that Andy fucked his vote & it would have been much closer.

Laughing

Guess we'll just need to convert more GNamer folk when MH5 comes out on Switch. Wink

Blame Studentcom's wifi! I actually bought MHG near launch and planned to give it a proper go after never doing so with MH4, but the wifi is so bad here that I sometimes struggle to trade pokemon, let alone play an online game with any semblance of stability!

That said, Pokemon is a great game and it also helped make my treatment much more bearable (not sure I could've handled action games) so I'm not sure anything could have denied it my top vote.

Yeah you's all really did seem to love it as I remember the forum chat did seem to pick up a whole lot in the days and weeks after it was released.

(I was even tempted myself but never got around to it in the end)

Glad we got some chat off the back of that! I can only echo the love-in the 3DS has received - it's been a good year for the wee console.

Now, let's put the boot in.

The Katie Hopkins Award for Worst Game of the Year (ten ballots received)



Before we reveal the true stinkers of 2016, I can reveal that we actually received a ballot from this award's namesake. It was, as you'd expect, full of vitriol and bile so it was discredited under the hidden "don't be a colossal fanny" rule. An excerpt, taken from her worst games of the year:

Awfulness:
 

...says it all. Now, moving on to similarly horrible things, here are the games you lot thought were just crap.

BAD:
 

PRETTY DAMN BAD:
 

THE WORST:
 

The Pile of Bad:
 

I say!:
 

Tomorrow (or should that be today, now...?) - it all ends. Your honourables and dishonourables in the afternoon, and the grand finale of Forumite of the Year at night.

Surprised about some of these like Stories which what I hear should be a good 7 and I heard some talk about Virginia like it was really dam good and one of the best "Walking Sims" around.

Agree with Jay this really should be the most likely a disappointing reward as very few of us will play the likes of Chasing Dead which is utterly unplayable, where even if you do think Virginia is a pile of shite, does it work? I would think yes that it's already leaps ahead of likes of Chasing Dead.

However if this becomes a disappointing reward for 2017 would we maybe get a different lot of results as I was disappointed in SFV but it wasn't bad and whoever voted for Virginia may not vote for that in disappointing as they had no exceptions.
