Forums: Index > Off-topic discussion > Nukapedia's GOTY

Just to inject a bit of off-topic humour around here... There's been some suggestions in recent news post comments that GOTY awards aren't exactly prestegious, in fact, there have been suggestions that they're actually rather common and bought off.

So, I'd like to hear your nominations for random games we can nominate for Nukapedia's Game of the year... The idea is to nominate things that are silly and offbeat... So anyone taking this seriously should look elsewhere....Agent c 21:47, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Edit, this has been up for over 4 hours now... Where's my cheque?Agent c 00:52, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for butting in, Agent, but it seems like some people don't realise what this is about.


This Game of the Year award is completely satirical. We are not looking for recent games, good games, or any game that would actually have even the slightest chance at winning Game of the Year. We are looking for the least likely suspects, such as Pac-Man or Where's Waldo. If you suggest a popular game, like Skyrim for example, then you might want to read over the point of this forum. Thank you.

Can we Satirically Suggest a popular game? Like suggest a mainstream game that is overly popular but just act like a dumbass (within reason of course... if that makes sense...) 5t3v0 22:52, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Certainly. The point of this is to be satirical, so as long as we can all have a laugh about the choice, feel free to add your nomination. 23:24, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: MineSweeper

Where would modern gaming be without Minesweeper - it has a briliant Interface, tension as the clock ticks out, and exploding mines! What more could we possibly want in a game. Agent c 21:47, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

yesIcon check I never understood this dismal little game. 22:09, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Postal 2

Nomination: Superman 64

Need I say more?. Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

Nomination: Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

As long as we're going for the silliest nominations we can think of, this seems to ruffle a few feathers. And it's the last game you'd expect to be named the GOTY. 22:16, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Spider Solitaire

Nomination: Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2

It may not of been finished, but judging by the first it would of been great. The Australian Kiwi 22:41, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

When I suggested a GOTY I was thinking more of nominating games that came out in 2011 and working from there.

Nomination: Catherine

It was a unique and very interesting game. I died a lot and got the game over screen tons of times. But I have to say that the gameplay was very interesting, and the story line was mind boggling. I felt like players had more control over how things turned out more so then in any other game I played as of late. If you haven't played it, I'd advise going out and getting the demo to get a taste of what the game is like. Turkeysocks 22:49, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Just a note... this isn't a serious GOTY award. We're trying to think of the least likely game to win it; hence, Minesweeper and FO:BoS. 03:28, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Battle Chess

Hey, where would Interplay have been without Battle Chess? There would never have even been Fallout. (OK, maybe I exaggerate). As for games only in 2011, did anyone actually play something other than Fallout and Skyrim? (alright, I did give Dead Island a whirl for a bit. Maybe I'll even finish it one of these days.)

Nomination: Planet Blupi

This was actually the second game I ever played. It was very addictive and I had a sick morbid fascination with making blupis work to death building stone walls. Skål! 03:55, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Duke Nukem - even more senseless than the original! DarthOrc 08:13, January 13, 2012 (UTC)DarthOrc

Nomination: Little Big Planet 2

Endless hours of whatever the imagination can come up with. My children have never asked for another game since they got this one. A true 10/10 game, 10/10 sound, 10/10 artistic merit and 10/10 playability.--Carinth 22:20, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Again, you're not understanding the point of this. Although we appreciate your choice, we're trying to find the least likely game to win the GOTY award. It's meant to be a joke, that any game can win GOTY regardless of how crappy it is. 22:37, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Oh least likely. I would nominate any Bethesda title released in 2011 then. They may all meet the required level of GOTY status but their games always fall in gameplay, the 10/10 sound, 10/10 artistic merit and (4/10)console, 6/10 PC gameplay, averages an 8/10 rating for a GOTY edition but always always lacks the playability in some way. If they read our wiki's they would get the proper fixes instead of modding things and leaving obvious glitches when patching to make the final edition of their games.--Carinth 17:13, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Google Earth

This game was very well developed, and the most realistic experience I've ever had. The story line and dialog lack a bit here and there, but they make up for it by providing hours upon hours of point and click action. 10/10 --Misterfish 23:35, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Nomination: Croc

Cause there is something adorable about that little dragon. MysteryStranger: Trust in the power of Infinity! 19:51, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
