KoopaTV's 2022 GOTY Nominations!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - And other categories.

The following nominations weren't decided or talked about in our Koopa Keep Discord server, but maybe the actual award winners will be. Behold! (See the bottom of this article for the link to the actual AWARDS once it's late-night Monday, January 9, 2023.)

To be eligible, those running had to have started their existence in the United States of America from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.

And just so you remember, GOTY stands for “Game of THAT Year”. That's the KoopaTV touch. Speaking of which, there is a brand-new category time in the gaming awards section. It's the second one.

But yeah, this isn't just about gaming, but also ourselves. ‘cause KoopaTV is art to be recognised and applauded, too. The Best Interview award came back, because there was enough of those published in 2022 to make a category of them again.

This article is such a rehash of the 2021 one
that I just took the first 20, and copy-pasted the first 2 twice to make a 2022!

Best KoopaTV Comment

  • “Imagine comparing me to Marge of all people, one of the most common characters with blue hair. Seriously? You couldn’t think of anyone more creative? Didn’t think so, you’re not that creative yourself, it’s not your strong point bud, unlike your ego. And you think MY hair is bad bruuuuuhhhhhh you look like shit with your vampire bat wings lookin’ hair, it looking like the legs of a bug. Also why do you try acting all elegant yet come out with the kappa cut and the dark blue hair. And where is your HAIRLINE?! I know you didn’t go to a barber to get that done or else you’d have sued by now, looking like frosting. You really thought your moustache hair would save anything.
    As well with your huge tooth sticking out, you know damn well you’re never gonna be able to kiss anybody or drink from a straw without there being added holes in it. What the fuck did you chew to A, have that sharp of a tooth, and B, have ONLY ONE, you probably chew your own god damn nails. You look like one of those troll dolls had sex with Donatello, and they had a baby and gave it the stupidest name ever. Cartman's more charming then your tubby ass.” — Larry Koopa
  • “Former Balan fan here.

    I somewhat agree with what you think, but shitting on Balan's pretty boy form is just... sad. After the leaks, it just took me more than a few days for me to get used to his form at the end.

    This fanbase is just taking things way too far.” — Anonymous
  • “(I saw the alliterative headline and expected a Soseki screenshot.)

    "Censorship" complaints can be very strange. I'll never forget people insisting Xenoblade Chronicles X was *censoring religious references* because the name of the faction that recovers lost debris/items was changed to "Reclaimers" in the English script from "Testament" in the Japanese script.

    ...Or people calling it censorship when Bravely Second came out in Japan and Japanese audiences widely criticized one aspect for being tedious, so Square Enix made it less tedious in the localized version.” — Samantha Lienhard
  • “Now when people criticize Peach for refusing to marry Mario in Super Mario Odyssey maybe they will understand why in this article. Peach clearly sees the red flags of Mario being a spousal abuser. As for why Peach seems to also be against your dad, she is suffering from battered girlfriend syndrome. Mario does go through the honeymoon phase of abuse, making Peach think Mario will for sure change his ways and therefore be against your dad in protecting her by seemingly kidnapping her. It is very hard for victims to break out of this cycle of abuse and why battered girlfriends/boyfriends/wives/husbands stay in an abusive relationship.” — ShinyGirafarig
  • “"Dunno why people give them affectionate names like “doggo” and consider them members of the family. It's awful!"

    Dogs appeal to two different kinds of people. Those who like a feeling of control and those who like something to nurture.

    Dogs can be trained to be obedient but there is always a chance of them snapping. An owner can feel powerful making a potentially vicious animal be under control.

    Dogs basically are wolves who can never fully mature into adult wolves and are mentally wolf puppies. So they can act comparatively like human children. Owners who do not like human children but still need the feel to nurture can find dogs appealing.” — ShinyGirafarig

Worst KoopaTV Comment

  • “Guys just come two trenend and use there clone potion. It quantum clones all universe so no pop overgrowth and you can still buy a transquantum portal to meet with your clone irl or if not money can just play Minecraft withim ” — Anonymous
  • “I stay in touch with the displays that address me the nation over. They all have heavenly notorieties and consequently they are overflowed with specialists' requests every week. So how would you make yourself stand apart from the group?” — Ducky
  • “I need a 100$ or 50& Nintendo gift card” — Anonymous
  • “Do you squirt or cream?” — Anonymous

  1. Exciting exciting! Although I think Matsu should get best hair as the LiveALive rep. Also, Ducky’s comment should be in best it really made me chuckle. Whatever they meant is anyones guess.

    1. It's likely not a coincidence that Team Hair's nominees are mostly women. (Shout-out to Mr. Grizz.)

    2. Erm, *Best Hair's nominees


  2. Poor Winklebottom, not even being a nominee.

    1. Well, there are some giraffes that are represented here. (You.)
