Predicted Winner: Boogie2988
Personal Pick: AngryJoeShow
Man, this one is neck and neck. I personally love both Boogie and Angry Joe. I think they have developed into two of the best personalities on the web in terms of gaming content.
I predict Boogie gets it only because he is actively campaigning on social media to try to win. Even though I personally watch Angry Joe more, I would love to see either Joe or Boogie take home the award.
Heck, why not just let both win? They’ve both earned it.
Best Fan Creation
- Project A2MR
- Pokémon Uranium
- Brutal Doom 64
- Enderal: The Shards of Order
Predicted Winner: Brutal Doom 64
Personal Pick: Brutal Doom 64
Frankly, I’ve only taken a crack at Brutal Doom 64, but with all the hype surrounding the franchise of Doom as a whole this year, I don’t see how Brutal Doom doesn’t take home the prize.
Though, don’t be surprised if Pokémon Uranium sneaks in and takes the award given Pokémon’s popularity this year.
Best eSports Game
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Valve)
- Dota 2 (Valve)
- League of Legends (Riot Games)
- Overwatch (Blizzard Entertainment)
- Street Fighter 5 (Capcom)
Predicted Winner: Overwatch
Personal Pick: Overwatch
I don’t see how this doesn’t go to any game but Overwatch. I can’t repeat enough how much of an impact this game has had on every aspect of the gaming community this year. If it manages to lose any of the awards it is up for, I’ll be stunned enough to maybe make it through a play through of Bubsy 3D…
OK, that’s not true; but my point is that Overwatch is more than likely Game of the Year, so expect it to take home a lot of the awards.
Whew! That’s all folks. I know I skipped over Best eSports player and team, but I literally know nothing about eSports besides what games are popular within the community so I don’t feel right giving my opinion on the field.
