Don’t you think that it’s about time for DDO to have it’s own prestigious annual “best of” awards? Glamour, prestige, drama, nominations, “and the winner is“, fancy designer outfits, photo ops, awkward acceptance speeches, you know, those kinds of awards. And did I mention the prestige?
Or instead we can have some kind of digital image that I mashed up in about two hours and conduct a series of polls to see what wins.
This being DDOGamer.com, we can quickly eliminate anything that includes words like “prestige” and “fancy”, or “contains any meaning or value whatsoever”, leaving us with that digital polls thing.
So be it.
Announcing the First Annual DDOGamer.com Gamey Awards! The Gameys go to the year’s highlights, the very best parts of DDO, with final decisions made by you, the DDOGamer reading/DDO playing public.
Gameys will be awarded in each of seven categories:
- Best New Content
- Best System Change
- Best Monster
- Best Release Note
- Best Quest
- Best Raid
And the most coveted of all,
- Best Update
For the next couple of weeks, DDOGamer.com will be accepting nominations in each of these categories. The top five nominees will appear in polls beginning mid-January, with the Gamey Gala award episode sometime in late January or early February, right smack in the middle of awards season.
Nominate your favorites by mentioning them in the comments below. Nominate as often as you wish, this is not a contest and there are no rules. Just write and let us know what you like.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your nominations!
