Your vote may not count officially but I appreciate the kind words on Cold Steel IV my man. Congrats on your nomination too, it was well deserved; maybe I’ll have a chance to properly use it in the future :pimp:

I'll start by saying that I have not used any of the following guides because I have not yet played any of the games. Even if the way the nomination process occurred was reversed, I still probably wouldn't have played all the games that "should" be nominated and would be making arbitrary choices based on some level of preference.

 

For me, I'm only going to consider games in the genres that I like because they will have a much better chance of me actually using them and that's why I love my RPG/JRPG guide makers out there. Fueling my drive to complete all these crazy games, powered by a legion of awesome people. Someday we'll get that 99% trophy completion with a stack of awesome RPG's. Someday. :P

 

So these choices are based on what I see myself playing in the future and where I would go to look first for my guides. I'm a huge fan of RPG/JRPG games and stuff like Rune Factory/Harvest Moon, so here we go:

 

Gameplay

✞ Persona 5 Royal - Confidants Guide

✞ Yakuza Kiwami - Perfectionist Guide

 

Walkthrough

✞ The Legend of Heroes: Trials of Cold Steel IV - Overall Walkthrough

✞ Demon's Souls - Full Trophy Walkthrough

 

Niche

✞ Children of Morta Trophy Guide

✞ Mortal Shell Trophy Guide

 

DLC

✞ Kingdom Hearts III - reMind DLC Trophy Guide

✞ DmC Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall DLC Trophy Guide

It's unfortunate that Sony didn't include backwards compatibility for the PS3 on the PS5 because I would have voted for Tales of Graces F. I'm a massive Tales fan but I don't have a PS3, so I can't see myself realistically playing that game unless a miracle happens. I'm also a HUGE Soulsborne fan and Demon's Souls is one of the first PS5 games I'll be getting, so that's why that guide got the priority over Tales of Graces F. </3 Please Bandai... make a Tales of Collection for the PS5. Please, please please!! 

 

Also the reason I voted Trials multiple times is because of some goofballs on Discord that decided it would be a great idea to introduce me to this series. I've since bought Trials of Cold Steel 2 & 3 with the plan to buy 1 & 4 and plat the whole series. So that's why I voted for it multiple times because not only is it very well done, I'll actually be using it when I do a plat rain on the Trials of Cold Steel series. Thank you so much for taking the time to put in the effort to make a guide of that level of quality. If I ever made a guide, that would be one I would reference for the quality I'd expect out of my own work.

@Dreggit Just curious, is there a reason why there were no VR guides up for nomination? I’m not concerned about my guide, but there were plenty as a whole written last year. 
 

Was it just overlooked and will it be included next year? Not a single VR guide is listed this year, not even under niche. Thank you

Ah... would've been chuffed to get even just a badge. Submitting just before the 31st wasn't the best idea I've ever had either. Still, there's always another year. 475 guides is a whopping amount to sort through so hopefully all the nominees feel proud of their work even if they don't end up winning. I haven't played many of these games so me not picking something doesn't mean a great deal. I mainly went for the ones that seemed like I'd find easy to follow on top of looking like a lot of effort had gone into them, which all of them did.

 

Gameplay

 

Grand Theft Auto III - 100% / Is That All You've Got? Trophy Guide

 

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time - Full Collectibles Guide

 

Walkthrough (this was especially tricky to choose)

 

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV - Overall Walkthrough

 

Persona 4 Golden - Platinum Walkthrough

 

Niche

 

I Am Bread Trophy Guide

 

Subnautica Trophy Guide

 

DLC

 

Driveclub - Tour DLC Trophy Guide

 

DmC Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall DLC Trophy Guide

 

Formatting

 

Doom Eternal Trophy Guide

 

The Last of Us Part II Trophy Guide (admittedly this is the only one I've played in this category, but it's very easy to follow and great to look at).

 

Imported

 

BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Trophy Guide

 

真・女神転生 III Nocturne HD Remaster

 

Original Content

 

House Flipper Trophy Guide

 

Jotun Trophy Guide

 

GOTY

 

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV - Overall Walkthrough

 

 

As for the changes this year, I actually do think it's an improvement on previous years. The only thing I'm unsure of is games getting put into multiple categories. Just seems to defeat the purpose of giving the nominations more variety, but that's the only thing really.

Well thank you for voting for my Doom guide even though it didn't help you personally!
