SAAE 15/16: Games

Welcome again to another night’s presentation of SAAE awards. Tonight’s category is on the subject of interactive media – more colloquially – video games. Again, I will take this opportunity to reiterate my gratitude for SGFCMoM’s tireless efforts ensuring our recipients are justly awarded.

The winners are as follows:


 

The Layne Award

for most normie game

Dota 2

Played by only the most normal of normies, Dota 2 is by far the most quantitatively normie game. Just ask SGFC’s resident normie, Cheng Puck aka Layne.

 

 

The CoD Award

for most overrated game

Dota 2

Nobody can say exactly what it is that makes such a terrible game so popular. The expert panel of SGFCMoM has offered the suggestion it is due to the low amount of Skill required Per Second (sps).

 

 

The Viva Pinata Award

for most underrated game

Star Wars Battlegrounds

Derided by some as a mere star wars skin for Age of Empires, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds comes into its own for its inherent depth and high Skill Per Second (SPS)  required. Games like Battlegrounds remind us quite clearly that RTSes are in their natural habitat when 2D.

 

 

The Combat Evolved Award

for best multiplayer game

Halo 3

Few fair minded objective people would take issue with the basic premise of Halo 3’s dominance as a multiplayer first person shooter.

 

 

The Valve Award

for best developer

Bethesda

Having won this award for a second straight year, Bethesda are yet to be toppled from the top spot of crafting  quality interactive experiences.

 

 

The Waterworld Award

for biggest flop

Steam Machines

Now several years having passed since their launch, anyone but the most hardened valvedrone can admit steam machines were a collosal failure. Are the limitations and support of Linux to blame? Maybe. (Yes)

 

 

The Chad Award

for most normie gamer

Cheng “Layne” Puck

Requires no explanation. A man who plays normie games such as dota 2 on this scale can only be construed as king of the normies.

 

The Gabe Newell Award

for best gaming personality

Pew Die Pie

Revealed in all his redpilled aryan glory, the popular YouTube game streamer has proven with recent comments that not all sweedes are shameless cuckolds.

 

 

The Halo 3 PC Award

for most highly anticipated game
Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars 2 follows the cult classic Xbox 360 RTS, promising more of the trademark halo art direction and sci fi intrigue. Will this be the final nail in the coffin of the failing Dawn of War series? The SGFC certainly hopes so.

 

 

The Ancient Evil Award

for biggest threat to video games

Linux gaming

The intrusion of Linux into the traditional windows territory of computer gaming is both unwelcome and dangerous. While few words of commendation can be said for windows’ merits as an operating system, its quality and user friendliness certainly towers over Linux. Nevertheless, the bitter nerds who actually use Linux as their desktop os and insist Linux is usable as a gaming system seek to undermine gaming by diverging developer resources into supporting their useless operating system.

 

The GOTY Award for 2015/16

for game of the year
And the prize goes to….
