    2019 in video gaming. It's been something hasn't it? The highs were quite possibly the highest of the gen and decade, and the lows were gut-wrenching at times and funny at others. Shadows died twice, Freaks lied, Houses rose, Kingdoms fell... and a God returned to reclaim the throne.

    Welcome everyone to the Naruto Forums Arcade Game of the Year 2019. Just like last year, voting will be done with write-in votes, and the community winners will serve as tie-breaker judges. You are only allowed one vote per award/category. I know it's a tough restriction, but this will allow for clear-cut winners. Only one vote will count per category!

    I would add best horror game to the list, if that makes sense. I know not a lot of them were released but I'd like to pick Resident Evil 2 on a section that ain't action/adventure.

    IMO Survival Horror is a sub-genre like HacknSlash. It falls under Adventure or Action-Adventure.

    There will be a lot of categories missing from this, because a lot of what I played was from 2018 and also because I don't have a PS4.
    In an age with more and more genres getting crossed, it can be difficult to fit something neatly in any given framework. I also normally don't do things like "best company" but after years of free campaigns culminating with Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight: Showdown, Yacht Club really deserves it. While I'm the saltiest person on this planet in regards to Pokemon's current state, by most metrics the game is...fine. It's fine. Contextualized, it is a huge disappointment, but I can't bring myself to call this the worst anything. It's just a big letdown. It also sold well so it's not like I can just call it a flop. I hesitate to nominate bad games because, for example, AI: The Somnium Files was overall bad but not without redeeming qualities and although I wouldn't recommend it I did enjoy aspects of it and I doubt it's the worst game that came out this year. And I don't usually play bad games for very long, so I doubt my opinion would be informed enough. Darksiders Genesis and Untitled Goose Game are two games I would have liked to fit in here somewhere, but I refused to do so in a contrived manner so alas, they're out.

    Broken Controller Awards
    Worst Gaming Company - Nintendo. Gamefreak is a subsidiary, they're incompetent mooks but if Nintendo and TPC really wanted, they could expand the studio, assign other studios to help out and inject money into the franchise.
    Cursed Moment of the Year - Persona 5 Scramble. Motherfucking Atlus knew everyone was salivating for the switch port of P5 and they hit us with musou trash. Get fucked.
    Flop of the year - Google Stadia is failing miserably and thank god for that. Any year I can add to traditional ownership of games before the stream overlords take over is one that I will be grateful for.

    2020 Awards
    Most Anticipated Announcement of 2020 - Bayonetta 3 Release Date Yeah I guess I will just ride @Charlotte D. Kurisu 's choice. I mean, my imagination runs wild so there's lots of things I'd love to see announced this year, but there's no accounting for likelihood.
    Most Anticipated [Announced] Game of 2020 - DOOM Eternal I don't really know what else is confirmed to come out this year. Everything I like might get pushed back again or isn't confirmed, and I won't be able to play Cyberpunk until I get an upgrade probably.

    Game of the Year
    2019 Game of the Year - Sekiro

    Community Awards
    Funniest Member - @Deathbringerpt is a funny son of a bitch, no question.
    Most Active Member - @Shiba D. Inu is one of the top posters in the forum, I assume that also applies to the Arcade.
    Member of Elevated Tastes - @Naruto ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 and Sekiro were all incredible games very much worthy of the GOTY award. Fire Emblem: Three Houses was a mediocre game.

    Brilliant choice IMO. No other protagonist had more of a cultural impact than Goose in 2019. Doesn't matter if it's a meme, cuz the game itself is a meme simulator. Might change my vote. :goose

    I'll count it, but IMO failing the platforming in Igavanias isn't that punishing to justify the label. Exception in a few areas per game of course.

    Good choice. :lugia

    Sorry bro, but I was absolutely fucking sick of this tune by the time I finished the game. :defeat

    The only game that I do not own from here is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    I disagree :
