This might be an odd place to do this, but I didn't want to make a long post on Social Media and instead decided to put this on my long dormant blog for my random writings. I'm very excited for The Game Awards 2017 as they feel like a celebration of my favorite hobby and the best games of the year. You can go here to choose your picks and see the nominees and below you can see a pick of my favorites and my predictions to actually win in their individual categories. I'm going to go in reverse order as to retain a little suspense about my Game of the Year (although you all already know what I picked.)
There will be a few categories that I can't vote or predict on because I simply haven't played them or don't hugely follow Esports; namely Best Chinese Game, Best Esports Team, Best Student Game, and Best Esports Player.

One of the great joys of waiting on a new Smash Brothers is the rampant speculation and wishing for new characters to join the series. I fall prey to this desire just like any other fan of the game, and have come up with 10 characters I’d love to see in the newest iteration of Smash. Without further ado, let’s get right to it.

Movies can be experiences unlike anything else. Film is a powerful medium that harnesses the power of a picture being worth a thousand words, and while some movies leverage that power to become simply great entertainment, sometimes a movie comes along that is a nearly formative experience. Life of Pi is just such a movie, one that instigated me to immediately purchase the book that came before the film. It is a film that I believe everyone should watch, regardless of whether or not you can fully grasp the underlying concepts.

Where Do the Animals Go When it Rains is a competent, if somewhat flawed amateur excursion into the world of children’s book that is full of love. Janet Crown and her children came together to make this book and it shows with a childish and whimsical look of where the different animals go to avoid the rain. The illustrations throughout the book are well done with simple yet classical design that resonated with both my children and kept them interested throughout the book as well as varying word fonts that popped on the page.

Reviewing a game seems like a relatively cut and dry affair right? Play a video game, tell people how you felt about the video game, and give it a score based on your experience. These reviews give consumers a chance to read another person’s perspective on a game before it comes out, letting them know whether or not they should spend their hard earned money on the title. On its face that seems like a spectacularly simply idea that seems to be prone to people endlessly trying to further complicate it. While I’m no veteran on the topic, I’ve only been doing this for a site for around 2 years, I felt the need to speak up and tell you exactly what goes in to throwing that score up there from a reviewer's perspective.
