>>> We are now going to take you LIVE to the set of the GRcade Awards Show for 2016! <<<

Image


Hello! I'm jawa and I'd like to welcome you to the show!

We are here tonight to celebrate GRcade and hundreds of you have voted for each of the twenty-five award categories, enabling a stunning array of our words and actions to be highighted tonight!

> To make things exciting, I haven't really looked too closely at the results nor prepared that much for the show. It's going to be done on the fly, with me checking and posting stuff as I go along. >>> Total thrills! <<<

> There will be little breaks and, to keep things exciting, a few muscial interludes.

> So grab a drink - and perhaps something to nibble on - as we shall soon start our awards journey. It's all LIVE so anything can go wrong and people can cheer and be enraged as we muddle through :toot: .

Okay, I'm going to work out what to start off with, so I'll be back in a minute.

Right, next it's...

2) Forum quote of the year

So much good (and bad :dread: ) chat over the course of 2016; but in the end there could be only one quote to rule them all.

Jawa I can't help but feel you've horribly misinterpreted these threads. They weren't funny. No1FFF's thread was genuinely upsetting, and Rightey's was a scary insight into the abuses our governments perpetrate

Taf's satire on Eighthours!

Image

Incredible stuff from Tafdolphin, and something that I'd missed until seeing these votes arrive! Lets now relive the experience:

Taf, talking about Eighthours, wrote:A warm fire burns in the hearth, it’s glow casting long shadows. The fragrance of lilic and gooseberries drifts through room, saturating the opulent wood and leather.

Movement. A ripple in the heavy air as the child, lain fully across a chaise long, awakens

“Mamon” he murmurs, “Mamon, where is my man? Where is Stilburn?”
“Here sir.” comes the voice of another, rich and dark as treacle.
“Stilburn, why must there be poor people in the world?”
“I know not sir”
“I saw a boy yesterday, at the markets. He barely had any adornments at all. And that creature he was carrying…that flat nosed monstrosity.”
“A pug sir. A particularly…chavvy breed of dog”
“Why did he carry it so? Surely he did not think it a companion?”
“I believe the boy was the son of one Jeremiah Corbyn, a local troublemaker of sorts. That family’s lot is low, and their tastes peculiar.”
“Surely a beast such as that cannot be of the same ilk as Cameron?”

The dog snaps to attention at his master’s voice, his muzzle shaped from generations of pure breed conditioning, his senses perfect, his intelligent supreme.

“The world is a strange place sir, full of communists and sodomites. You are fortunate indeed. Thanks to your father’s holdings you need never trouble yourself with such woes.”
“Quite so. Now Stilburn,” the child says as he reclines once more. “You may massage my feet.”
“Yes, young master Eight.”

And our winner is...

The Cannibal House forum game!

Image

Bravo! This was a terrific game and lots of folk took part. It was my first (and only) AYA? game and it seemed like a good laugh, albeit it got pretty complicated and some folk experienced a huge amount of bottom pain at certain points. Congrats to the game creators (Err... Dan and Karl, I think!).

And the next one is up straight away!

4) Forum charity event of the year

This category delivered our clearest winner... and that's no surprise when you consider how cool it was.

Congratulations to...

Sick Kids Save Point

Cheeky and the guys did an amazing job playing games for 24 hours in order to raise cash for a cool children's charity. Excellent stuff and this award is excellent recognition for that achievement :toot: .

Yo, Jawa, I'm really happy for you, I'ma let you finish, but AYAMMM was one of the best forum events of all time! One of the best forum events of all time!

The above post is followed by a winky, smiley or facepalm as appropriate.

Now we have another important category... this one recognises those fok who put time and effort into helping to make GRcade worth visiting. It's these guys who get us logging into GR and reading (or taking part!) in lots of cool content.

5) GRcade content creator(s) of the year

It's important to note the "(s)" here as there are lots of great creators in GR. Okay... the 2016 winners are....
