    ZU's GotY: the side categories nominations thread
    • As with last year we will be having a 64 game GotY tournament, where ZU's Game of the Year will be decided. But as a warm up we've decided to start the nominations for the side awards. I want to thank Ty and TruEdge, as well as everyone who contributed to the suggestions thread which was posted recently, without you guys this wouldn't be possible. We have 11 great categories this year, we decided to choose those categories that are a little more off the beaten path (as opposed to the typical "best of genre X" type awards) both for the fun of it and also as to not prejudice some of the smaller games included in the GotY tournament that are typically not thought of as GotY material.

      Here are the awards and happy nominating :heart:

      Best supported old game
      Most anticipated 2019 game
      Game with most surprising moments
      Please stop (industry trends that need to stop)
      Best game that came out of nowhere
      Best Worst executed idea
      Best Gaming Related Meme
      Game everyone thought would fail but didn't
      Biggest communications fail
      The Tommy Wiseau Award for "you tried but it was just so damn terrible"
