A Gamer Never Forgets

Games Radar has posted a great feature on their site called the Anti-Awards 2006. Check it out.

It's nice to see game journalists keeping a game on their radar (no pun intended) after the review has come and gone. I can't count how many times I've read a 5 page preview extravaganza of a game in a mag, only to see it fizzle into a 1/4 page review of the ultimately failure of a game. Kudos to Games Radar and other sites like them who realize that one can be gung-ho supportive of our up-and-coming industry and still direct some negativity when it's deserved.

Hit the link for the list. I personally enjoyed the "Hype Machine Broke Down" and "Audience Mismatch" awards.
