Destructoid's award for Best Xbox One Game of 2016 goes to...

There's nothing quite like Dark Souls. It's a series that intrigues and ensnares, temping its players to persevere against harsh odds to see the next captivating set design or beautifully vile boss. At times, these games teeter over the edg...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2016

In the best of times, "quality over quantity" has been the way of the Wii U. If you bought into the system knowing that you'd more than likely end up playing Nintendo-backed games and not a whole lot else, this isn't your first rodeo. That ...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2016

Look, we all know video games are great, but you can't bring your cutting edge gaming PC or your Xbox Steel Battalion controller with you everywhere you go. Or maybe you can, but you probably shouldn't. It's bad for your back. Thankfully, t...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PC Game of 2016

When it comes time to pick Game of the Year, there's one thing and just one thing that you look for: Quality. If it's good, like cream-of-the-crop good, it belongs in the conversation. Brevity is not a strong suit of this year's PC list. Th...   read

No games received the Platinum Prize at PlayStation Awards 2016

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2016

In 2015, Microsoft's sales pitch heading into the holiday season was "The greatest games lineup in Xbox history." It felt sort of hollow at the time, like those games were okay but that the best was still around the corner. As it turns out,...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2016

This time of year, I tend to have a mostly finalized list of my personal favorite games in mind. I just instinctively know what belongs where. Worst case, there might be a tie or two left to break or a few titles in need of a refresher befo...   read

Destructoid's best of Poznan Game Arena is...

Poznan Game Arena reminds me something of the first PlayStation Experience. Maybe that's mostly because of the season. The video game convention circuit squarely falls between March and August, the time of the year when publishers look to d...   read

Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes home award for best of gamescom

And the winner of the Games Journalism Award...not a games journalist!

The 5th Annual New York Game Awards took place tonight in Arizona. Nah, nah. It was in New York. I fooled you for a second, though, I bet. The event is put on by the New York Videogame Critics Circle, which counts Samit as one of its membe...   read
