      1. Bitching about the handheld feature of the Switch isn’t funny, either. It’s just incredibly cheap & sad since there are thousands of electronics with at least one or two features that many don’t use but they buy the product anyway. But I guess cheap idiots will be cheap idiots.

      2. Least with paying for online, we get a bunch of nice goodies like a free game every month if we choose to get it, cloud storage for our save data, and free discounts ranging from as little as 5% to even 90% off unlike Nintendo who makes you buy shit for those discounts that only range from 20% to 30% off using the shitty My Nintendo. In fact, Sony should be getting my 60 bucks for PlayStation Plus on the 1st of January. It’s not Sony’s fault you are just a cheap or poor little bitch. Get a better paying job, kid!

  1. It’s a shame that Xenoblade X, a fire first party Nintendo title, isn’t making the list since it came out December 2015. A game of Skyrim/Fallout caliber and it’s overshadowed by its awkward release date and an inexplicable general disregard for good Nintendo games outside of Mario, Zelda and Pokémon. Thumbs down for the Game Awards.

  2. }{ Reading through this list makes me realize just how bad this year has been for Nintendo fans… Fates was probably the best game this year, and it was plagued by poor menus and a lackluster story… and then there was the game even I won’t speak of, that is abbreviated as M.F.F. }{

  3. Jesus. There are a lot of titles not shown here. Isn’t this being called a bit early? And why are Handheld games being tied to Mobile? They’re different in almost every way. They really should’ve waited and held this in January.

  4. I HATE how this awards show adds handheld & mobile games into one category! Mobile games are no where on the same fucking level as handheld games! Knock it off!! Not to mention the other games are gonna get screwed over by Pokemon GO. Talk about unfair! So good luck to you, Monster Hunter Generations & Fire Emblem Fates. You guys have been unfairly pitted against games that have billions of supporters while you two probably only have a couple million.

    Well I’ll be. Xenoblade Chronicles X is in the RPG nominees… along with Witcher 3’s Blood & Wine expansion!? … Best of luck, XCX! Ya gonna need it!

  6. Fuck! I was gonna vote for Zelda: Breath of the Wild as Most Anticipated Game but I need a fucking Twitter account! Yeah. Not gonna fucking happen in a million years! If I could log into the site itself as a spectator user or use my Facebook account, sure. But Twitter!? One of the social media sites with THE worst userbase in the history of social media!? Fuck no!
