Trailers of the Year

For those of you who took in yesterday’s episode you’ll be happy to know that the next 34 minutes of your life will be filled with the same witty banter and enjoyable conversation. Today, we cover four more categories in our Best of the Year awards and they include:

  • The Melodious (best soundtrack)
  • The Storyteller (best story)
  • The Nolan Northy (best performance)
  • The Saving Grace (biggest surprise)

So without further delay, check out episode 2 of our Best of the Year videocast series:

As we mentioned yesterday, 2016 was a great year in games and today we talk about some great AAA titles but also throw a lot of love at some indie games that left big impressions on us. Games like Inside, The Witness and Firewatch took many people by surprise and left a lasting impression with our entire crew. There was also a ton of pleasant surprises worth noting.

Of course we’re not done yet! We still have another three episodes to go and this weekend we’ll be dropping another set of awards which will include:

  • Sexiest Digital Hero
  • Best Sports or Racing Game
  • Best RPG
