Ladies and Gentlemen, the time draws near!
We’re now halfway through the month of December, which means that the release cycle is pretty much over, and studios have started to head off on winter breaks. Frankly, it’s the perfect time to start handing out some virtual awards for some truly excellent games.
This year marks the eight annual Gamer Crash Awards, celebrating the past 12 months before we jump headlong into 2018.
If you’re joining me for the first time, here’s a little rundown on how things work around here. Being a one man show over here, while also trying to be a functioning adult human being, I simply don’t have the money or time like other major websites to play and review everything such as IGN or Gamespot. So that means that there’s going to be a few games that don’t make my cut. In fact, you won’t see any Nintendo Switch games nominated this year because I don’t own the system, even though I could have easily added a couple because we all know they’re fantastic. I mean, Super Mario Odyssey, am I right?
Like any review or impressions post I create, I can’t pass judgment on something if I haven’t spent time with it. It wouldn’t be fair, and frankly, I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing that. With that said, I typically do an “amended” post sometime in January once I’ve caught up on my backlog, but for now, don’t expect to see every AAA game on my lists.
While you eagerly wait for next week, he’s a little recap of the nominees and winners from last year:
