I have never even heard of these trending gamers on their list. Maybe I should keep a better eye out there.

A good chunk of Mayro on there. Zeld too. Surprisingly it's nominated for best soundtrack too.

Unsurprisingly all the best handheld section is occupied by Ninty games.

Oh and ARMS is nominated for best fighting game. My sweet summer child.

There's actually separate "Best mobile game" and "Best handheld game" categories. Super Mario Run and FE Heroes are nominated for best mobile game.

Hot take cannon time: Zelda BotW got a reputation nomination for Best Score/Music. The few tracks that are there are great, but I wouldn't nominate it for that category.

Also, here's something that BLP would find interesting:

There's no Best Shooter category this year!

@IceClimbers shame. Splatoon 2 could win it again and make all the "core gamers" mad.
I guess I'll have to drink regressive tears from some other group of people for now.

BotW's music is actually really good, but I definitely wouldn't vote for it over Mario Odyssey or Persona 5 in that category.

Really, it'll be a travesty if Persona 5 doesn't win the music category.

Played three of those nominees. Zelda easily gets my vote, although admittedly I've not played much of the other two.

Re. RiME - that game always had a look about it to me that my intuition told me to not to get too interested. I liked what it appeared to be aspiring to be, but the limited footage they were showing gave me the impression it was going to be style over substance. There were one or two others teased around the same time, iirc, which also smelly rather fishy, and they've bit surfaces. Always trust your nose.

I've just held an Ignored Users amnesty on my account. 20+ users are back in the game with an extra life - make it count :)

Pretty big change up from last year where Ninty wasn't as prevalent in the thing.

Bragging rights I guess.

Botw has some of the best music in the series, the big issue is you don't get to hear 90% of it more than once and the bulk of the tracks are, like, a minute long, making the stuff ingame feel less memorable as a whole. The music is brilliant, but I can't blame the people who were somewhat disappointed by it, if you're not the kind of person who sits down to listen to 4 hours of videogame music lol

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there

@IceClimbers Probably cause there are none

I'm sure there's a new lootbox category though.

Next year should have a category for Best Game at Monetizing its Players.

Now that WOULD be a hotly contested award!

@Octane There's a "Best Ongoing Game" category. Basically an award for GaaS, so close enough

@YummyHappyPills Well, there would have been 5 different shooters eligible (CoD WWII, Destiny 2, Splatoon 2, Ghost Recon Wildlands, PUBG) if they wanted that category, so they definitely could have done it.

I would vote for Zelda in best music. Not many games use sound and music in such an organic way. Kass' theme serves as a guide to find him, all the village themes are memorable, and the adaptive soundtrack to your actions sell Hyrule as more real.

I'll never forget the smile and tear in my eye when I first arrived in the Rito Village and heard the theme there.

Love all, trust a few, do harm to none.

Um, Wolfenstein 2, one of the best shooters of the modern era.

The game we're getting on Switch. Seems people greatly undervalued how good DOOM and Wolfenstein are.

A game that sold more copies than actual consoles has to win GotY. Surely!

If BoTW doesn't pick up GoTY, it'll give Cuphead a run for its money. (Also fantastic)

This is Nintendo's ceremony to win. Two of the highest rated games of all time in the same year.
