The NintyBuzz Awards 2016 – The Results

Nindie Game of the Year 2016

All those independent Nintendo game developers deserve some recognition for all their hard work, and what’s better than to award two Nindies with this award? What I love about this particular category is that they recognise games that some people may have never even heard of. Neither of these games have I played, but who knows, Runbow, 2015’s Nindie of the Year, is now one of my favourite, so soon one of these could tickle my fancy too! The Nindie of the Year 2016 goes to…

Nintendo 3DS Game of the Year

Can you believe the 3DS turns six in just a couple months, doesn’t time fly. This year’s Nintendo 3DS Game of the Year has been highly anticipated by Pokémon fans around the world, it’s also the first Pokémon game that has tempted me back into the series since Pokémon Yellow.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
