I've got 99 problems but a temporarily available simultaneous multiplayer videogame ain't one.

SUBMISSIONS CLOSED

Thank you so much everyone who took part! In total we had 13 sets of votes, which I think is up there with the maximum we've ever had! (Lockdown makes people spend more time on videogame websites, who knew...)

The first result probably won't go out today. Instead I'm going to start making a buffer of results posts, so that hopefully when I get going I'm going to be able to reel them one off after another with no breaks. Thanks for your patience, and check back... probably tomorrow. Smile

Sad though I am to interrupt such crack(l)ing puns: it’s time.  In this, the 35th year of Mario:

THE GNAMER FORUM AWARDS 2020


THE WARIOWARE DOG REPORTER AWARD FOR TOPIC OF THE YEAR
(8 sets of votes)

Like Jay last year, I'm holding back some of the big guns, but which of our topics were big guns for you this year?

Third Place:
 

Second Place:
 

And The Winner Is...:
 

Missed the cut:
 

A great start, I feel!  Let's hope the next award doesn't shit the bed and sour the mood...

I'm going to bring a 5 star rating system in and break it like Meltzer by giving GRIS 7 out 5 stars right away.

Ohh more serious note good see forum games/events do well and thanks for the votes for release threads.

I'd have voted for the music thread too if I'd remembered about it. That was a good thing for the forum, it got folk logging on regularly at a time when there was little else going on in gaming.

I appreciate a few of the comments mentioning me there. For the retro thread I enjoyed playing through all those N64 games and it's nice that even a couple of folk paid attention to my write-ups. 

Being honest, I forgot about that Big Gaming in the 2010s thread until it was too late. I had all sorts of topics lined up for us to discuss. Ah well, maybe they can become their own threads someday.

Bugger, I'd totally forgotten about the music thread challenge too. I'd also have voted for that had I remembered. Laughing

Bloody hell, that’s a lot of forgetting! Aw well, hopefully our next award will be more memorab- oh.  Oh dear.

THE PARAKARRY AWARD FOR POST OF THE YEAR
(6 sets of votes)

Okay, full disclosure: this one was a stinker.  We had six people with three votes (one only cast two) voting for 15 posts and one set of posts.  Those of you who like numbers will note that that means 15 posts/post sets got one vote each.  So we had one clear winner, and then a bunch of posts with one vote each.  It didn't feel right to do a podium on that basis, so we'll just have the one winner here methinks.

And The Winner Is...:
 

And the rest...:
 


That was slightly disappointing, wasn't it?  Fret not though, because we have a SURPRISE AWARD to dull the pain:

SURPRISE:
 

Up next: an award that people were actually looking forward to that didn't go horribly wrong! Thumbs Up!

I am gonna make more of an effort to use the post appreciation thread this year, I always struggle after a long ol' year to try and remember specific posts so I need to start taking notes. I personally thing all posts are worthy of the award because you're all so great.

I am getting old. I remember nothing from the year 2020, including those two posts of mine that were voted for.

In response to my call-out to capitalism, I keep meaning to write something more substantial but it ultimately always boils down to the last line of that post: It's about seeing what you can do and at least doing that much.

I haven't actually read GJones' winning post yet as it looked one to sit down with when I have some time . . . which I never do.

Thanks for the votes! "Best Post" is a tough one as there are posts constantly being added every day, I know I had to rack my brains for memorable ones. But I'm glad something I wrote went down well Smile

As mentioned in the comments, the Post Appreciation Thread is the normally the best way to jog memories... but not so much this year. Sad Anyway: the worst is behind us now, chaps!

As someone that mainly plays on Xbox, what's always drawn me to PlayStation is the exclusives and even here where we have some chat around them but never a huge lot, that's currently 4 of those 5 are "console" exclusive to PS4.

Which isn't surprising due to the quality ( The Last of Us Part II was robbed but get it's a bleak game not for everyone), just would maybe thought 3rd party games would done better than they did.

Yep that top 5 with one exception is about as triple A as it gets.........clearly more of you need to play stuff like Streets of Rage 4 & THPS 1+2.

I did play both of them and we actually talked about THPS on Twitter and even my review on here, it's a great remaster (remaster of the year?) and that to me isn't a new game. Then even though I can tell it's a great game, it isn't really what I want from games anymore.

I totally forgot you could get the Jackbox games on Nintendo systems! That being said though, I wouldn't have got any playtime out of it as a Switch game because I'd have no means of streaming it.

Of the top 5, I'd like to play Ghosts of Tsushima at some point. Seeing those beans up there makes me want to give Fall Guys another blast too!

Yeh I do remember that & I realised a while ago we are the polar opposite to what we want from games. Laughing Just a bit surprised that in a GNamer vote there wasn't less triple A picks is all.

I last played just before Christmas and the winter themed modes they had put in were great fun! Always up for a few games of Fall guys so just give us a shout on either twitter or discord. Thumbs Up!
