Posted December 18th, 2018 at 7:30 am

With 2018 coming to a close it’s time to start looking back on the developments that have taken place in sports gaming and acknowledge the various efforts that have been made in the genre with the 10th Annual Pastapadre Community Awards. You can check out all of the PCA winners from previous years here.

The categories will include Sports Game of the Year, Best New or Non-Yearly Sports Game, Best Mobile Game, Best Racing Game, Best Gameplay Best Online Play, Best Presentation, Best Franchise Mode, Best Career Mode, Best Post-Release Support, Best New Feature, and Best Team-Building Mode. All winners will be announced in early January!

Next up for 2018 is Best Gameplay, which had long been dominated by the NBA 2K series until MLB The Show was able to break through and win the last two years. MLB The Show 18 however won’t even have a shot at a three-peat for the franchise after an extremely troubled year gameplay-wise. NBA 2K19 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 return as nominees along with a first-time nod for NHL 19.
