KoopaTV's 2019 GOTY Nominations!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - And other categories.

These were decided and talked about in our Koopa Keep Discord server. Behold!
The déjà vu from years past is intentional. (To be eligible, those running have to start their existence in the United States of America from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019.)

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. Just to make it clear, we have an “each KoopaTV article may only be nominated once, total.” rule that obviously doesn't apply to the gaming half.

This article is such a rehash of the 2018 one that I just erased part of the 8 to make it a 9!

Best KoopaTV Comment

  • “Toddlers are the real world equivalent of Klefki. My daughter would take my keys and try to open random holes she found with them sometimes making it hard for me to locate where the keys are.” - ShinyGirafarig
  • “I try to follow people from a variety of different viewpoints on Twitter to avoid echo chambers.

    Doing so has also helped me to see more than ever that any group can have a great deal of variety in it, even if people who subscribe to identity politics don't want to accept it (and do their best to silence people who belong to "their" groups yet say things they don't want to hear).” — Samantha Lienhard
  • “Though I do agree that it's sad the turtle died, when I first started reading it I was actually relieved because I thought maybe YOU had actually gotten into a car accident.

    Also, I was crestfallen when I read "FLORIDA MAN" in this article, just as I am whenever I read those two words from any news source, because, well, I am one and I don't want to be associated with such people. Like, no one ever seems to get attention for the GOOD kind of crazy, even.” — Lheticus Videre
  • “I was totally ignorant of all the controversies surrounding Dr. Mario, and now I am astonished that Mario has not been sued for malpractice yet due to all of the misdiagnoses and pain he has inflicted upon his patients. To make matters worse, he is even employing infants, a clear violation of child labor laws if I have ever seen one. It is long overdue for his license to practice medicine be revoked. Thank you Ludwig and Wendy for this phenomenal investigative journalism. Hopefully, this piece will go viral and Mario loses his job in the medical field and goes back to being a plumber.” — Kody B.
  • “Seems the target audience for I Heart Guts includes medical students going through studying specific organs for their specialty, specialists who unironically have these plushies in their office, relative of patients who buy these for patients who just went though a surgery for the real organ counterpart they just got operated on, probably mostly women buy the penis plushies if they have a huge collection of sex toys and women probably are the ones who buy the uterus and vulva plushies to show people a simplified depiction of these body parts to people who can never seem to get the anatomy for these parts and are laughed at on r/badwomensanatomy.

    I am sure you probably deal with nonshelled species who do not understand a shell is not merely clothes but part of your spine and need a plush to educate them.” — ShinyGirafarig 
  • “Hey, thank you so much for transcribing the credits for this title! I've been looking for them for a long time.” — RBM95

Worst KoopaTV Comment

  • “The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention. Good lodge in Springs” — seomonster [their hyperlink omitted]
  • “Sounds like SJW garbage to me.
    Think of the children!
    Muh terrorism!
    Have we learned nothing?” — Anonymous
  • “can someone tell me a code” — Unknown
  • “Eh, to me it's probably a tie with the Pokemon that is LITERALLY an ice cream cone.” — Lheticus Videre

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 the staff 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! (You can rally for your own comments too, if you got nominated. ...Even if you got nominated for the worst comment.)

  1. Oh wow, I got nominated for a best comment and a worst comment in the same year! That in itself is as good as an award already to me! XD

    1. Well, I hope Kojima doesn't take the Death Stranding nominations with pride.
