Press Row Podcast: 2016 Community Awards Show

By on @pastapadre

Now into its 8th year, the Pastapadre Community Awards have set out to recognize all the efforts made in sports gaming which go well beyond just that of naming the “Sports Game of the Year.” For 2016 the awards expanded to 12 categories and collected over 33,000 votes in the process. Sports video games are complex and rich in content, and no one game excels in every area that make them up. The Community Awards are an opportunity to help identify the standouts from specific aspects of the games and over time the annual process has been shown to identify trends for the individual franchises as well as the industry.

Bryan Wiedey and Rich Grisham reveal the results of the 2016 Pastapadre Community Awards and provide analysis of what the numbers say about the games in the latest episode of the Press Row Podcast. Find out the winners of the 2016 Sports Game of the Year, Best New/Non-Yearly Sports Game, Best Racing Game, Best Mobile Game, Best Gameplay, Best New Feature, Best Post-Release Support, Best Franchise Mode, Best Career/Story Mode, Best Team-Building Mode, Best Presentation, and Best Online Play!
