My brother explained to me what happened just now, I apologize for this misunderstanding. If you feel like I should be banned from the competition feel free to do so. I gave him my second account to play fortnite since I had stopped playing it and he loves the game, he wants to try and trophy hunt since he has winter break from school and decided to vote for my guides since he'll be using them to trophy hunt in the games I help him buy. I don't really care for this whole "Guide of the year" stuff I didn't even know it existed before today. Again sorry the misunderstanding, don't take his comment into consideration. 

You must understand our perspective. Someone with a freshly made account is voting for your guides, and his name is almost the same as yours. This can cause confusion. It is nothing personal =)

Hey @Platisfaction just a heads up - all the links in "Exceptional Use of Original Content" send you to the Burly Men at Sea guide.

This is intentional. I bribed him for a little advertisement for my guides.

Unfortunately, forum thread guides and walkthroughs don't count, only those that are posted in the Guides section of the site.

 

How does one submit a guide in the Guide section? Do I have to be premium member?

Nope, just go to the trophy page of the game you want to create a guide for and you can start creating by clicking on 'create a gameplay or a trophy guide'. It's recommended to check out the guide forum resources to make sure it's up to the right quality that's wanted for publication.

People who cheat should be banned from the awards......

Why? Cheating gives them no advantage in creating a guide and we advertise that flagged users can use this site as normal if they keep the flag. I strongly disagree with this statement.

I think he meant people who vote for their own guide using an alt account in order to get some nominations, which would be cheating the voting system because actual people didn't vote for their guide.

Definitely Guide of the year - monster hunter world

I'm not sure if my vote counted or not since I didn't vote for a minimum of 3, but here goes:

 

Guide of the year - Monster Hunter World: Can't say that I had much use of it since I was close to finishing the platinum myself when the guide came out, but when I checked the guide afterwards everything was spot-on correct and well written. Every detail and trick I learned on my own could be found in their guide.

 

Exceptional walkthrough guide - Detroit: Become Human: This game has multiple choices which will lead to several playthroughs. Following this guide made me sure not to miss any collectibles or trophies, was 100% accurate and explained the most effective route to platinum. I was somewhat confused on how to tackle the game before coming across this guide.

 

Exceptional gameplay guide - Farcry 5: Helpful and detailed guide for getting all those nasty collectibles

 

Exceptional quality upkeep - Red Dead Redemption 2: It's a big game and people keep finding better/easier methods on how to completing certain things. Even today people are discovering new stuff. I've seen many giving feedback in the comment section in this guide and the authors make sure to edit their guides accordingly to make sure it is updated.

Exceptional walkthrough: Tomb raider Exhaustive, well structured , clear, helpful, complete

Exceptional Gameplay RDR2 Exhaustive, well structured , clear, helpful, complete. A great guide for a great game.

Trophy guide Far cry 5. Essential at the time of side quests. Very well structured and clear.

DLC Guide Uncharted 4. I plat U4 but still need the 100% via the MP mode. Very clear and well structured. Most exhaustive and complete guide ever made. Getting some MP will appear now less challenging thanks this 5* guide. A must have.

Basically what Kittet2 said. Once you have the game on your profile on this site, you can create a guide for it. If you're considering writing an official guide, please take a look at the Guide Manual for some useful information to help you get started.

I didn't tally those, because technically they are not walkthrough/gameplay guides but simply trophy guides.

 

Except for that, all votes up to this point have been tallied. Updating the OP now...

 

Edit: Done. The links are working properly again, too. ;)

Guide of the Year:
Pyre

 

The guide is extremely complete, detailed, and provided the perfect companion to a truly amazing game.

 

Niche:
Seasons After Fall

 

Not that Pyre isn't niche, but in order to spice things up, I picked another helpful guide.

 

Formatting:
Papers, Please

 

Papers, Please is the epitome of a visual game: you need to remember sigils, forms, faces, etc. I used the chart and pictures in that guide extensively, and it gets my vote.

 

DLC:
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag: Freedom Cry

 

Short guide which details exactly what needs to be done.

 

Gameplay:
2064: Read Only Memories

 

I had given up on that game because of the frustration (and the crashes) but following the guide lead me to a painless platinum (on a game that was so promising, but ended up disappointingly in-your-face)

 

Original Content:
Kona

 

I have to admit I did not use the videos, but the maps were definitely extremely useful for yet another fun game!

No no kuni II: guide of the year, hands down. This guide is better than an old school strategy guide! You can tell that the author(s) took a lot of time and care into writing this wonderful guide. I’m not even gonna throw any other votes out there, because let’s be honest: if you actually read this guide and looked through it’s contents, it’s not contest. Ni no kuni guide should be a staple and all other guides should strive to be measurable in comparison.

I have to nominate the Tales of Innocence R guide for guide of the year. If some of these other guides beat it out because of the game's popularity, it will be a travesty.

 

I want to also nominate it for exceptional use of original content, exceptional niche game guide, and exceptional walkthrough if that's possible. It simply has to win something. It is BY FAR the best guide I've seen on PSNP for any year.

Could you elaborate on that? I'm seeing lots of text stating it's the best guide, but nothing that goes into detail as to why that is. So, basically what did you think is so good about it? Btw, you have to nominate one overall guide and at least 3 categories.

Sadly, the author requested his guide to be removed from the list of eligible guides, so Tales of Innocence R doesn't count.
