2017 SXSW Gaming Awards Winners Are In With Nintendo Taking Home Just One Award

The winners of the 2017 SXSW Gaming Awards have been announced and unfortunately Nintendo didn’t bag many awards; one, in fact.

  1. 2016 was Nintendo’s worst year I have ever known. And you really can’t give Nintendo credit for Pokemon go either. They own a large share in then IP, but they had little to nothing to do with the actual development of the game.

      According to fanboys: When Pokemon does shit right, Nintendo should get all of the praise instead of GameFreak or any other developers making said games. But when a Pokemon game does something wrong, oh hell no! You crossed a fucking line putting that evil on Nintendo! *eye twitch*

  2. Battlefield 1 is very fun, and I love Doom. those devs deserve any praise they can get. DOOM was to FPS, as Zelda BotW was to Open world.

    If you don’t know much or haven’t played DOOM, Please reserve your criticisms just because it’s a FPS. It was built around Campaign mode, and it is a fucking bloody love letter to the genre.

    If DOOM ported to the Switch, I would highly reconsider my position of not buying one. If I could have BotW and DOOM on one console, I’d be fucking happy as hell.

    Maybe they could have taken home two rewards if these fucking award fuckers would quit putting handheld & mobile games into the SAME FUCKING CATEGORY!!! Give it time. If this shitty trend continues, don’t be surprised when you see Switch games in that category as they get ass raped by mobile games even if said Switch games were awesome!
