With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Alright everyone, it's that time of year again!

Though this year, we're gonna start a little bit fresh. While I could just use the same old list of awards that I've done for the last few years, I'm going to give a week or so here for any and all revisions you want to see.

Any categories you want to add? Any you want to remove? Now is the time to voice

Last years awards are listed HERE, so feel free to look them over and make your decisions!

We did that one year, and we had like two nominations. But if people want it, I'd be game.

We could add Best/Worst GR Staff. Dan is doing so good at being the community manager, but would it be able to standoff with Nick Tan's Haiku reading?

Maybe just best. No one's doing anything bad enough to be dubbed "worst" - that would be harsh!

I cant think of any awards. Include chat awards this year? Best Chatter? Since it's been more involved.

Toss Out:

Most Annoying Poster
Best Returning Poster
Best Taste in Games
Worst Taste in Games
Best Veteran

Toss In:

Best Topic
Worst Topic
Multiplayer
Creativity

I would like to add a set of Chatter awards some day, but I don't think enough people would vote to make it worthwhile. We could just have a Worst Chatter award to shame people, though. Always in for shaming.

I think you need to add:

Best FrozenBacon

The winner of that reward should get a $10,000 cash prize as well.

How awkward would it be if you didn't win it Smile

I like the suggestions so far, they capture the full essence of what awards should be: completely meaningless and just for the show.

Keep em coming Cool

Lots of old GR member came back this year. It would be nice if we could give them a award or something.

I think what De-Ting posted is pretty much all we need. I would, however, keep best returning poster, since we had an influx of old fogies hitting the forums again for a week or two.

Get rid of returning poster, since those who returned quickly left again.
