Nominees for Destructoid's Best Remaster/Remake of 2018

The first instinct of many is to balk at the very concept of remakes and remasters. Some think that they damage the impact of the original, while others just see it as a sign of creative bankruptcy. These accusations are often leveled parti...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Mobile Game of 2018

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Portable Game of 2018

When it came time to start going through the nomination process for the Destructoid Game of the Year awards, I honestly wasn't sure if we were going to have a Best Portable category. Both the 3DS and Vita have had good runs, the latter of t...

Let's get it out of the way right up front: There's not a single battle royale game on this year's list of nominees for Best PC Game of 2018. That should fill some of you with a warm, fuzzy delight as if you're seeing old friends for the fi...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2018

I'm a bit perplexed as I look at this list of nominees for Best Xbox One Game of 2018. There's a duo of humongous open-world action games. There's another game that takes place one minute at a time. There are two fighters. There's a game wh...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best PS4 Game of 2018

Last year, our PlayStation 4 Game of the Year nominee list was dominated by Japanese games including Nioh, NieR, and Persona 5. This year, it's not so one-sided. God of War and Spider-Man are heavy hitters, and for a lot of people, it'll bo...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Switch Game of 2018

The phrase/meme "perfect for Switch" was invented last year but really became a thing in 2018. The Switch is an unstoppable force, swaying developers left and right, from indie studios to AAA publishers. Nintendo completely turned this...

The Great Retro Quiz! Results of 2017

I think I now know how Edward Nygma feels when he sets up an elaborate riddle to trap Batman, but Batman ignores the riddles and just socks him in the jaw. Unfortunately, this edition of the Great Retro Quiz had very low participation, and ...

Nick Valdez's personal picks for best games of 2017

I took so, so many Ls this year. I mean, the world did overall but 2017 was particularly unkind to me in a bunch of ways. There's no need to unpack all that stuff right at the intro, but you should know going in that the choices I've made h...

A 2017 GOTY list that doesn't include PUBG

Listen, I don't have anything against PUBG, other than maybe the name is too long and obnoxious and the abbreviation is equally frustrating to say, I just don't....care about it. I don't even own the game or have any desire to. I've played ...

Marcel's Dtoid 2017 Yearbook of Games

2017 may collectively become known as the simultaneous best and worst year of the past decade. While the lineup of games throughout the year hasn't been this strong since 1997, the real world has also been a shit show. There were dozens of ...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for GOTY 2017

2017 may be over, but it won’t be forgotten. While 2016 had a collection of some decent enough titles, everyone brought out their A game this year. While I’m still not quite sure whether these games are as important as years pas...

Mike Sounders's indecisive six best games of 2017

2017 was a great year for video games wasn't it? Yes we've all heard it said dozens of times already, but it's true nevertheless. This has easily been the hardest year in my life where I couldn't decide my absolute favorite game of the year...

Take a deep breath. If you're reading this, congratulations. The holidays have come and gone, and we're one step closer to leaving 2017 in the dust. It hasn't been an easy year, but here we are: alive, tougher, and desperate for some rest. ...

Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

Crafting a personal Game of the Year list is one of my favorite holiday traditions. It's my chance to get weird and profess my love for several projects that might not be all that popular, and give people a window into how I spend my time. ...

Rich Meister's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

2017 has been one hell of a year for games. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to hit their software strides, the Switch is bringing Nintendo back to its glory days. PC gaming remains stronger than ever and I can't think of a yea...

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

This is probably the second time in two years that I can say that it’s been a pretty good year for games and anime, if not necessarily a great year for everything else. That might be true in the broader sense, but despite this more ...
