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 2016 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:

2015 - italia64
2014 - Envy Fox
2013 - Majora's Mask & Highlander (tie)
2012 - Heinrold

I agree. Italia is hardcore.
I'm still unsure. So many great gamers!

I'll come back to this one. :-8

For me, it's a toss up between Buddy1983 and EnvyFox, who have each beaten dozens of games across multiple platforms in 2016. I'll choose Buddy1983 this year for his retro and current-gen efforts in between daddy and work duties!

Nods of respect and admiration to all of you that populate the Games Beaten in 2016 thread, particularly Floorcat, Stinger, DeeMoney, Matt, The Red Shadow, Shellshocker18, MyBeefCakes and The White Falcon. Honorable mention also to Italia (for his epic Body Harvest victory) and to DJ Cat for his contributions to the Take the Stage! competition.

Not sure to deserve it this year. I worked in few games in 2016. I was in Romania for work and still I'm since October.
Luckily next year things will go better, in fact now even in Romania I have a great N64 setup and I'm waiting for the Everdrive 64 V3 hehe.

In 2016:

I battled for the world records in F1 RC
I did my personal best in WDC
I beaten ISS 2000 with Nepal, the worst team
I beaten 100% Perfect Dark (and now I'm working for the rank 1)
I beaten some minor games and above all I beaten Body Harvest on Hero mode.

But probably is too few considering how many games you guys beaten this year.

My vote is for Shellshocker18 who has beaten almost the whole Rareware library in 3 weeks.

I'll have to have a go at that Nepal challenge in ISS2000 before the year is out when I have some time off work ?

Milage007 has done well as well, purely for beating me (for now ??) in the current Goldeneye challenge.

Thanks for the nomination Italia! But to be fair I didn't beat Blast Corps. I've never owned Donkey Kong or Killer Instinct. And I still haven't technically beat Banjo-Tooie even though I'm right at the end. Still though the Rare games I did play were all enjoyable, Goldeneye proving to be considerably better than I anticipated. I've beaten so many n64 games this year I don't think I could top myself next year if I tried. I do like to play as many games as possible so I can have a well rounded knowledge of the console but I'll probably become a bit more recreational with my play next year.

Thanks for the mention DJC. I started the year well but after moving house I tailed off and started online gaming a little more. That Goldeneye 007 stint was good though. Will be due my annual play through of that in 2017 as well. ^_^

I'd vote for EnvyFox as well. You are an absolute machine when it comes to completing games. Honourable mention to Italia but due to your time away, appreciate you haven't been able to tune your 64 in as much as you would have liked.

I too will nominate Italia. Love watching him squeeze everything there is to get out of World Driver Championship, and he takes on big daunting games and completes them to a level I'm truly envious of!
