End of Year Community Awards: Best Team-Building Mode of 2017

Posted December 26th, 2017 at 10:00 am

With 2017 coming to a close it’s time to look back on the developments that have taken place and acknowledge the various efforts in sports gaming. The next category in the annual Community Awards is open for voting. You can check out the winners from previous years here.

Best GameplayBest Career/Story Mode and Best Franchise Mode can already be voted on! Categories still to come include Sports Game of the Year, Best New or Non-Yearly Sports Game, Best Mobile Game, Best Racing Game, Best Online Play, Best Presentation, Best Post-Release Support, and Best New Feature. All winners will be announced in early January.

What was the tightest race last year (winner topping runner-up by only .4%) returns the same nominees. MLB The Show 17’s Diamond Dynasty goes for a three-peat as arguably the most accessible of the card-collection modes but also troubled by inconsistent server reliability. Madden NFL 18’s Ultimate Team and FIFA 18’s Ultimate Team feature a great deal new content throughout the year with obtainable, worthwhile and creative rewards.
