KoopaTV's 2016 GOTY Nominations!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - And other categories.

These were decided and talked about in our [Koopa Keep] AOL Instant Messenger Blast. Behold!

The déjà vu from years past is intentional. (To be eligible, those running have to start their existence in America from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.)

And just so you remember, that stands for "Game of THAT Year". That's the KoopaTV touch.

But yeah, this isn't just about gaming, but also ourselves. 'cause we're art to be recognised and applauded, too.

Best KoopaTV Article

Check back when the weekend is over for the winners! KoopaTV reserves the right to add or remove additional nominations post-publishing. The decision for what wins is solely up to KoopaTV's staff, though you're free to sway us in the comments. KoopaTV's staff is likely to vote for their own contributions and cause a stalemate, so the staff may actually rely on your comments!

It was a series of close decisions and internal deal-making, but KoopaTV's staff has decided on the GOTY 2016 Awards!
Moving on, here are the GOTY 2017 nominations.


  1. Wow I am amazed I am mentioned up there.

    1. Well, everyone who guest-wrote something is there.

  2. I was going to say the Wii U games category was weak but them I remembered those were all of the first party Wii U games released last year.

    1. I was tempted to just have the only entrant in the category be Paper Mario: Color Splash.

  3. My article was clearly the best.
    Go Twilight Princess HD.
    (Are there even PC gaming staffers?)

    1. (Wendy, Kamek, and Vortex all actively PC game; in order of most PC gaming to least active PC gaming but still PC gaming.)

    2. I don't, unless you still maintain that Wendy is me like you did in your nominated guest article.

    3. Well, she plays PC games and I don't, so clearly we're different people.

    4. My PC is a standard Dell desktop from 2011 that never had any modifications made to it.

    5. According to:

      "Sorry, your computer does not meet the minimum specifications required to run this product. Please review the details below for more information."

      Specifically it's the video card.
      "Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or greater. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported. Integrated chipsets are not supported.
      You Have: Intel(R) HD Graphics"

      Rank: 15th percentile
      Your graphics card ranks in the 15th percentile.
      Out of 2,486,208 Intel graphics card tests, your graphics card is more powerful than 365,704."

      I didn't know that website was a thing.

    7. ...yeah, as I said, no modifications includes out-of-the-box graphics card.

      I imagine it's a very useful and popular site for PC gamers.

    8. Just build a PC that can run everything and don't worry about it.

    9. Yeah. That means I just save money and then hoard it.
