The /r/Games of the Year Awards!

Gamingtodaynews1g - The /r/Games of the Year Awards!

Hello friends!

To think 2018 is coming to a close already. It's been a long year, with many ups and downs, great memes and lot's of drama.

But instead of focusing on what went wrong, let's focus on what went right, and celebrate the great moments of the year in the world of gaming. So grab a chair, grab a drink, and let's bullshit about video games!

This year, we will be doing 12 different categories to discuss various genres, companies, and more. Everyone will have the chance to throw their hat in the ring and comment on who stood out this year in each category. At the end of the 12 days (on Christmas), the winners will be collected and posted.

Here are the categories:

  1. Dec 13 – Standout developers: Who stood out this year as a video game dev team, and deserves a shoutout?

  2. Dec 14 – Best Narratives: The games with the best stories, narratives, or lore released this year

  3. Dec 15 – Most Beauty: The best looking games from this year, graphically and aesthetically

  4. Dec 16 – Greatest Music: Which soundtracks stand out this year, either single hits or a collective game's music?

  5. Dec 17 – Console Master Race: Finding the best console exclusives and discussing the companies themselves, from Nintendo's Switch to Microsoft's Xbox One to Sony's Playstation 4

  6. Dec 18 – Continuously Improved: Which game has seen the greatest updates over the years and continues to deliver well after it's launch?

  7. Dec 19 – Impactful Indies: Which indie games have come out in the year that stand out amongst the crowd and everyone needs to play?

  8. Dec 20 – Content Creators: Videos, reviews, commentaries, documentaries, breakdowns, who has really excelled this year in producing the best content for those wanting to keep up with the gaming news of today?

  9. Dec 21 – Game of the Year: The one. Which games stand on top the mountain and what makes them deserve the prestige?

  10. Dec 22 – Honorable Mentions: Anything related to gaming that we simply didn't have the category for, anything that stood out to you as awesome and worth mentioning

  11. Dec 23 – Moments of the year: Think of it like free talk friday, but for the year and not for just a week. Share your stories, experiences, memes, twitch highlights, what made gaming awesome for you this year, we want to hear it

  12. Dec 24 – Hype Thrusters Engaged: What exciting titles are on the horizon? What are you looking forward to the most for 2019?

Each day will be one thread, going up and stickied to the top around 12AM – 2AM EST. At the end of the 12 days, the entries with the highest upvote count will be gathered and used to declare the winners of the Games of the Year awards!

That being said, this isn't just a competition. If you feel like a game deserves special mention, even if it doesn't win, be sure to post it and talk about what you loved about the game and makes it special.

Just a few basic rules:

  • Spoilers must be properly spoiler tagged

  • Top level comments can only have 1 entry, you can't mention multiple games in a single top end comment or it won't be accepted in the final count.

  • Games should be limited to what was released in 2018. If there is a conflict of regional launch dates, the earliest common English release would be used.

These rules will be stickied to each thread as well.

The first post will be going up on December 13th, so stay tuned and come prepared!
