And Destructoid's E3 2017 Game of the Show is...

The internet, full of opinion-havers and never-be-wrongs, had a lot of steadfast thoughts about E3 2017. They ranged from "It was very good" to "It was very bad," with some "It was okay" and "It was not great" peppered in the middle. Nuance...

Whew - another year, another E3! It seems like moreso this year than any previous in recent memory, the developers, publishers, and whatever the hell you'd call The PC Gaming Show really hunkered down and focused not on flashy presentations...

The 2017 Independent Games Festival finalists are here

This is going to be an especially hard year to name winners at the Independent Games Festival. The list of finalists is out, and even just looking at the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, I feel like we're being to asked to name our favorite chil...

Destructoid's hottest game tracks of 2016

Burned out on Christmas music? We've got you covered! Music and sound design are very important yet underappreciated aspects of game design. I mean, we can't touch, taste, or smell games (yet), so the auditory feedback is half our of experi...

Good golly, there were a lot of great new characters in 2016

This year, we saw plenty of familiar faces in our games. Nathan Drake, Marcus Fenix, and Pikachu all had some big titles. But this post isn't about them. No, this post is about the great character who made their debuts in 2016. These are ou...

There was a lot of competition for the Best 3DS Game for 2016, including a handful of other JRPGs, but in a landslide victory (taking almost half the votes among nine entries), the award goes to Pokémon Sun and Moon. There was a ton ...

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

Shame on me for underestimating Overwatch. For the longest time, I just assumed it'd be another Blizzard game, this time a shooter. I knew it'd be big, but in the exact same way all Blizzard games are big. You know, those PC games that the ...

Destructoid's award for Best Wii U Game of 2016 goes to...

It was a regrettably light year for Wii U releases, but that's not to say it was uneventful. This was the year that gave us an Atlus-developed, idol-centric JRPG that not only brought the storied Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchise...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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,...
