It’s that time of year again, where we roll out the red carpet and celebrate the best that 2020 has offered us. In a year that has otherwise been so terrible, the fact that we’ve had a steady stream of such excellent games to play has been nothing but a relief.
It really has been a great year for games, from the big blockbusters right down to the most humble of projects. We’ve had surprises that have come out of nowhere, and long-anticipated games that have managed to meet and exceed our expectations when we’ve finally got our hands on them.
This year, for the DDNet awards, we have 16 different categories to recognise, and as we always do. Today we’re looking at one of the most fun categories – the fan service award! It’s no secret that we enjoy a spot of fanservice here at DDNet. A bikini here, a blown skirt there (and of course a dude or two with ripped muscles), if video games are meant to be fun, then surely a bit of sexiness can be part of it. Some games make fan service part of the narrative in some ways. Other games don’t bother to explain it. We enjoy either approach, as long as it’s done in the right spirit.
Of course, we very much welcome your own picks for each category, so be sure to let us know your thoughts, and we’ll see you tomorrow for the next category!
