THE GNAMER FORUM AWARDS 2021


Yes, it's finally happening.  I'm finally getting off my lazy online bum and firing the starter's gun, even if the Big Excel Spreadsheet o' Results might need to wait another day or so.  Voting is open!  Voting will be closed at Sunday 23rd January at 23:59: that's two-and-a-bit weeks, and I'm happy to go for extensions.

The usual caveats apply.  You don't need to vote in every category.  If you genuinely can't muster up some answers, don't force yourself to; if you're not fond of an award, you can leave it out.  Also, please chuck in some comments when you vote.  A list of names on its own is a bit dull, so please tell us why you voted for whatever you're voting for, even the tagline one.  No obligation to do so, natch: names are much better than nothing! Smile

Finally, after these votes close, we'll be having a top five years of Switch vote.  You can read the details in the spoiler below.  There's nothing to stop you voting now, but I know that I for one would like to have a crack at Legends Arceus before I cast my votes!


Apart from said Switch vote, categories are the same as last year:

Contributor of the Year (two votes, weighted equally) - The award for the person that's made GNamer tick this year.  Who's delivered the best threads, whipped up some cracking posts, and made you want to keep logging back onto GNamer, even in the downtimes?  

Funniest Forumite (one vote) - Arguably the most coveted award.  Who's made you laugh the most this year on the forum?

Post of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - What were the very finest individual posts you read this year, be they funny or profound?  We (read: I) would strongly advise that you pick your posts from the Posts Appreciation Thread (starting here), or post your picked posts in there.  There's basically no chance of your chosen post getting the acclaim it deserves if it's not put somewhere other people will see it!

Topic of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - What threads have been must-reads for you every time you signed on in 2021?  While they were active, anyway.

Tagline of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - Which of the forum's subtitles made you cackle, smirk, or shake your head sadly when you logged on?  Check the OP of the Tagline Thread for 2021's finest!  Note that this is an ordered vote this year, to avoid a hundred taglines being tied on one point apiece.

Nintendo Game of the Year (five votes, in order of preference) - Which Switch titles, either retail or eShop, all-new or remake or Switch Online rerelease, were the top of your list in 2021?  Did you enjoy hunting monsters or snapping them?  Did you blow up a planet, or did the world end with you?  Reminder: if it released on Switch in 2021, even if you played it somewhere else, it goes here (unless the Switch version was noticeably worse).  Oh, and Pikmin Bloom sits here too.

Nontendo Game of the Year (five votes, in order of preference) - Did the new generations of console clank into action for you this year?  Or do you feel like the industry's caught in an infinite loop?  Share you favourite releases that didn't make it to the Switch here!

Honourable Mentions - Is there anything to shout about that didn't make it into your votes?  Tell us!  Some ideas: forumites and threads that didn't make it, developers or gaming figures who stood up in your eyes, niche specific parts of games that made 2021 for you a little bit, or just Cappa's signature again.  (Whole games are fine too, but do tell us something about them!)

Dishonourable Mentions - And of course, you can roast anything that was rubbish in 2021 here (apart from specific users, obviously).  I don't think we need any further ideas for this one, sadly...

GNew Year's Resolutions - Finally, now that we're all boosted or thereabouts, what do you hope to get up to this year with your new-found viral resistance?  Outdoors or indoors, either's good!


As ever, please chuck me your votes via a forum PM - and as ever, I'm looking forward to reading what you fine folks come up with. Smile

I also want to wait on the Switch vote as SMTV might make it, then Pokémon Legends and who knows possibly something in February comes to Switch worth a play.

Since when did we not get to choose specific users for the dishonourable mention? It was definitely a thing back in 2012...

New categories lads:

Dishonourable of the Year (two votes, weighted equally) - You put Balla here, both times

Funniest Dishonourable Forumite (one vote) - Arguably the most coveted award. This goes to Balla though.  

Post of the Dishonourable (three votes, in order of preference) - You put Balla's posts in here

Topic of the most Dishonourable - (three votes, in order of preference) - You put Balla's topics here

Dishonourable of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) Didn't we already have this category? Sure, but please don't ruin the running joke here  - And let's be honest, it's Balla again.

Nintendo Dishonourable of the Year (five votes, in order of preference) - Who else would say that what the golf is Switch essential? Vote for Balla.

Nontendo Dishonourable of the Year (five votes, in order of preference) - Balla maybe only owns a ps3 but he coined the term "Nontendo" so he should win just for that.

Dishonourable Mentions - Is there anything to shout about that didn't make it into your votes?  Tell us!  Some ideas: Vote Balla

The Double Deja Vu Dishonourable Mentions - Is there anything to shout about that didn't make it into your votes?  Tell us!  Some ideas: Vote Balla again again.

GNew Year's Dishonourables  - A GNew year so we must have a GNew dishonourable, right? Wrong it's Balla again.

Then next after those awards we have -

Nine Years Of Being Dishonourable:

He should get one for thinking a indie rock band is rap, can only presume he's confused as no Italian or Orchestra.

Was also going to say Balla once put Radio 2 on by accident, and was like this Beatles won't take off yeah yeah instead of yes, that's not the Queens English, he then found Classic FM again.

If this doesn't get Post of 2022 then either somebody's pulled a blinder or there's no justice in the world.

Okay, I was perhaps a bit unclear. In previous years we've had some people getting dishonourable mentions and it's usually been good fun: looking back at the 1st year Switch vote, Andy gave me three dishonourables under different names, the cad. However we have also had the odd dishonourable suggested that's felt a bit too sincere. Actual dislike rather than laughter. They obviously didn't make it through to the final results, and that's what I was thinking of.

Basically: dishonourables laughing at the person are bad, dishonourables laughing with the person are fine. THAT INCLUDES ME YOU BASTARDS.

Just to clarify and make sure I'm not being thick here, we can hold off on our five years of Switch votes until later if need be, right? Well, till at least before March, right?

I'll need to do some trawling in the posts appreciation thread and such for a little refresher, but I'll get my votes in before the 21st!

At this point, the halfway mark, we've got three votes in! This isn't surprising, I know we normally get a stream of votes towards the end. However... if nobody else wants to vote for the games of the year, that would be great. Shifty

Funnily enough, I've not played a single 2021 game so that section will be blank from me!

You can vote for ports as long as the come to Switch or PlayStation or Xbox etc this year

Our vote only one where I've got a mobile port and a remaster in because of the rules compared to most places and personal of 2021 games.

I did post my votes yesterday but they seem to be stuck in an outbox and not in the sentbox. I assume that means that they have not yet gone through?

Nah, that just means I haven't read them yet. Which I'm about to do! No doubt ruining my temporary beautiful gaming moment. Sad
