NerdBacon Announces its 2017 Game of the Year Award Winners!

NerdBacon Announces its 2017 Game of the Year Award Winners!

We hope that you’ve all had a great holiday season, filled with a dump truck full of gaming goodies!

2017 has been an extraordinary year for gaming, with amazing AAA titles seemingly released at least once a month! We keep harping on this, but we truly feel that no other year in gaming history compares to 2017 in terms of the sheer level of quality displayed by the majority of the titles released in the year.

This year has also been special because NerdBacon has continued to expand and for the first time ever, we were able to produce a Game of the Year Awards Spectacular, which aired in mid December.

If you happened to miss the show – how dare you!!…….just kidding..

It’s okay. We get it. People are busy and NerdBacon still loves you.

While we highly encourage you to check out the video of the NerdBacon Game of the Year Spectacular (because it’s pretty wild) those of you just wishing to scratch your curiosity itch can check out our list of award winners.
