This award is for our Gamer of the Year. It originated as our N64Forever.com Game-Off MVP Award, but as the current gen machines began soaking up our gaming time, we expanded the award to include those of you who so prodigiously whip games of any vintage.

Who is your Gamer of the Year? Is your nominee someone whose 2015 game beaten list has you bowing in adoration while muttering "We're not worthy!!"? Or is it someone who your got to pair up with in Splatoon? Perhaps its someone who beat some tough titles for our Beats 'Em All competition. Or maybe its someone who has built some exquisitely difficult courses in Super Mario Maker? What ever you reasons, feel free to mention those with gaming chops that have impressed you this year, but be sure to name one nominee.

Past Winners:
2014 - Envy Fox
2013 - Majora's Mask & Highlander (tie)
2012 - Heinrold

and if I look how many times No64DD has posted his Mario Kart 64 tracks... (and also heard the amount he plays) Truly makes him the gamer of the year for me. :yeah:

buddy1983 and Envy Fox are terrific gamers (they haven't met a console they couldn't master); the platinum bros, Matt and floorcat are incredible; DeeMoney is a current gen beast as well; Boomdiers is a Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon fiend; and the guys on the Mario Kart 64 Hotlap thread are awesome. But one member has achieved something so EPIC that he, IMHO, deserves recognition as our Gamer of the Year: italia64

Italia64 has beaten 35 N64 games for our Beats 'Em All competition THIS YEAR ALONE. The next highest total (over the entirety of the Gameoff/Beats Em All competition) is 34. Italia has now beaten 40 games for that competition, and revived it to the point where we are really running out of games. The end is near! He has also beaten a ton of other N64 titles, so he is just dominating the console this year. Well done, Italia64, and THANK YOU!!!!

I agree with BDR, Italia64 did some major work this year with the 'N64 Forever Beat em All.' It would be a crime for him not to win. :yeah:

I nominate: Italia64
He made a crazy effort to beat N64 Games this year (Also 100%)
And he made many posts about the process with inspiration from those games

First off, thank you all for the kind words. I guess the list of games I've beaten is pretty impressive. ^_^

Not as impressive as Italia64, though. I know he's already been nominated, but I can't think of a better choice. Before he came in and started clearing those N64 titles like they were bowling pins, the progress on the Beats 'Em All was going rather slowly. I'm guessing a lot of us either didn't have any of the remaining games or just didn't think we had what it took to beat them (I was both for the most part). For Italia64 to help this site get that close to taking down the entire NTSC and PAL N64 library is quite the accomplishment.

Not that he did it alone, mind you. There are a lot of names under that achievements list for a reason. :yeah:

Italia64 gets my vote. Pure dedication. Great accomplishment. Not only does he clear the games, his comments and reviews of his encounters are always of great interest. Gives you something to digest if you are thinking of acquiring a title.

It would be criminal not to mention Envyfox & Matt though who have both in their own right cleared a lot of games - good going.
