Bronze: Final Fantasy XV

Silver: Batman: The Telltale Series

And The Winner Is…

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Geektown’s Game Of The Year is of course, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The final (probably) chapter of the epic Uncharted series from Naughty Dog. This one see’s Nathan Drake (Nolan North) reunited with his long lost brother Sam (Troy Baker), and head off on one final adventure. As always with Naughty Dog, it’s a great mix of action, adventure, and brilliantly scripted storytelling, set in a variety of beautifully rendered locations. The banter between Nate, Sam and Elena (Haven’s Emily Rose) is so natural and funny, you can tell they had a great time making the game. You can hear Nolan & Troy talk more about working together in our press panel from Comic Con below.

Geektown’s Movie of The Year (that isn’t Star Wars…)

Nominees: Arrival, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ghostbusters, Star Trek Beyond, The Jungle Book

Bronze: Captain America: Civil War

Silver: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

And The Winner Is…

Deadpool

The winner, by a landslide, was the merc with a mouth, Deadpool. The movie that proved getting an R rating in the US (15 in the UK) is not a death sentence for a comic book movie, being the 8th highest grossing movie of 2016, and the the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time! Ryan Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson, the cancer riddled merc, who gets superpowers after being tortured and injected with a mutation-activating serum by a covert organisation. It’s violent, crude, and hilariously funny from the start, and is of course getting a sequel, which will see Deadpool joined by his comic book partner Cable.
