Golden Rubber Keyboard Awards

Post by Rorthron » Mon Jan 01, 2018 12:20 pm

2017 is over. Perhaps we could celebrate the best games of the year with some awards: Best Game, Best Graphics, Best Sound, Best Gameplay.

Any thoughts?

I made my own top ten list over on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Blerkotron/status/9 ... 2059983874), but a proper discussion and vote with multiple categories would be a super idea!

Not played all these games, but I think Sword if Ianna will win the 'best game' award, definitely.

Any others? Oddest Title? The Development Hell award for long-running projects that did not appear in 2017?

Good idea! What way are you planning to do it? As a poll here in Spectrum computing forums? We could try the way that reaches out to the max number of people :)

I thought we could do it by a series of polls here. I can set them up, if we get some agreement on categories and nominees.
