2008 Best of Halo Awards: Accepting Nominations

2008 best of halo awards

The handsome devils over at Second Foundation (who so generously paid me to use that exact terminology) have hosted Halo-themed awards for the past two consecutive years. When I heard they were not going to continue their short-lived tradition, I wanted to make sure significantly contributing members of this community I care so much about still got the recognition they wholeheartedly deserve. Thus, I will be your handsome devil of a host this year for the 2008 Best of Halo Awards. Although I’m not exactly handsome, I’m certainly the devil so at least I’ve got half of it covered!

Nominations for all categories will be accepted until Monday, December 22nd (giving you one full week to ponder and submit your preferred choices). Official nominees will be announced and voting will begin on December 29th. Voting will remain open until January 5th with the winners being announced the following week. When you make your nominations (in the form of a comment), please remember this is for the year 2008 only, meaning potential video nominations must have been made and released in 2008, all screenshot nominations must have been taken in 2008, and eligible news must have occurred in 2008. All of everything must have gone down in 2008. Got it? Good! If you see someone else mention the same thing you were going to point out, go ahead and call my attention to it again. The more referrals I receive for each individual item, the closer I will look at it for consideration. After the jump you will find the specific categories with examples for clarification purposes. Check them out, then get to nominating!

  14. Dennis says:

    The Halo Custom Edition game (a Halo 1 PC derivative and upgrade developed by Gearbox Software for the PC) has long been the forgotten clique, almost the sub culture, of the Halo fan base. In 2008 alone the Halo CE fans have created over 300 custom multiplayer maps and environments for the Halo CE game, numerous single player campaign style levels and over 200 variants of existing map bringing the total fan contributions to over 2,500 unique Halo levels and environments. The Halo 2 Vista community has also developed over 90 levels for the Halo 2 Vista game. Might I suggest that some of those talented map makers be considered in the selections for the Best of Halo Awards? You can find their work at http://www.halomaps.org

    I Nominate Firestream from HaloCharts.com for Biggest Community Contributor.
    He has made the abslolute best Halo community there is, hands down. The culture at HC is nothing short of spectacular. Any and every member is helpful. The forums are a great place to go for info, help, team mates etc. That is just the community that he has created, now on to the actual site. The stats that are put at your disposal are uncomprehendable. He is constantly updating the site with cool new features. He has weekly challenges that keep you interested in Halo as well as making you play the game in a different fashion to win, which in turn makes you a more complete player.
    Last but not least. I was losing interest in Halo before I found HC. Now I have 80+ friends that I have met at HC on my friends list that I play online with regularly. Before HC I had 2 or 3 people that I played with.

    http://www.H3Wheelmen.com for best social site.

    As a community hey have gotten more people re-interested or re-focused in their dying love of halo than other sites i’ve seen through their own community site and their many friendly affiliations with other sites and clans to form a melting pot of halo talent to cover all ranges. members pop up from late night romps with randoms who chat about a love of the warthog in lobbies with site members as well. also has many newcomers who discovered the site “by mistake” just cause they checked a few leader boards. all in all just a place to hang out online and chat, make connections, and learn more about honing your skills in nearly all regards. all of the admin staff and more prominent site members are more than willing to welcome new members into games, for there are no formal “clan style” teams {tho there is a cluster of people for site based tourneys which changes every time}. all in all great peeps, great advice, and good times wait there for anyone to join and enjoy at their own leisure.

    Give it a look over, you just may love what you find,

    —Biggest contributing site and individual—
    Dennis’ halomaps.org has served the community almost 300 terabytes of custom maps, machinima, applications, and videos, adding up to nearly 10 million downloads since 2005. The site also features user forums where beginners and the experienced alike come together to make maps, custom content, and to just discuss Halo.
    Dennis really deserves some recognition for this site and all he’s done for the community. I really think he’s helping to keep custom edition going after all these years, because without his site there would be much less interest in the game. Whenever a new player comes to CE, we can always refer them to halomaps.org as the place to download everything they need.

    I nominate me
    for best fan-made contribution, since there is no music category.
    People probably haven’t heard this much, but Louis at HBO and even Marty himself have been very supportive.
    So I give you: Under Cover of Chomber
    a mashup of themes from Halo and Marathon.

    I nominate http://www.H3WHEELMEN.COM for:

    Biggest Community Contributor (Website) & Best Social Site because of all the social network websites i have been apart of ever since i began my halo career. Its a great community with very little-to-no kind of ignorance, bigots, or annoying people apart of it. all of use are apart of the community. Any Experts of there craft is praised, any novice can ask for help or mentoring without ridicule or flaming. any1 and everyone are treated equally. its the first group ive ever been apart of in which i feel imm talkin to people i actually know or in other words consider a family.

    I hope for everyone who reads my post to give our forums a view and become apart of the family.

    Thank you H3WM for everything and i wish i would have found it back when i played halo 2.

  358. Joel Buchanan says:

    I know it may be the end of 2009 but I think we will all agree that these are the best of all time.

    Biggest Halo News- This goes to the only this worth this category and I believe many Halo fans would agree, The original announcement for Halo 2. When this popped out for the first time, Halo was already in full swing and fans were just about every where. The game had a side Alternate reality game that pushed it though(I Love Bees). This announcement brought more atenition in the series than anything else. We did not know what was going to happen after the chief was left derelict in space and fans couldn’t wait.
    Fans were not that surprised at the rest of the series. We knew that they had to come out with Halo 3 and the other games were no surprise. The Halo 2 announcement comes in first place for sure.

    Biggest Community Contributer (Website)- Halopedia is the only thing on the list that comes close. Bungie’s website only only has information, but Halopedia is a one stop dream

    Biggest Community Contributer (Individual)- There is no real answer for this one, but if it came down to just having to pick 1, I couldn’t. There would have to be a group of people, a team that is agreed upon by all. They would have to be Bungie. Without them, we would not have this all revered game today. Let’s give them a round of applause.

    Best Montage- Halo Hell 1 and 2 by the team Hollywood Halo is the undisputed champions of Halo montages. Each episode incorporates visual puns and breathtaking syncing that makes you want to make one. They are the best. Now, if it came down to best montage under four minutes, I would have to give that to Newb Productions Citizen Soldier video.

    Best Machinima Series- Okay. Anyone who denies this series dos not appreciate Halo. Red vs. Blue by Rooster Teeth Productions has lasted over 6 seasons and over 120 episodes. Each episode if filled with comedy and a complex story line that leaves you riveted all the way until the end of the season and wanting more with the cliff hanger and huge plot point. This series alone boosted so much interest in Halo that in Halo 2, there are many references to this series. This is without a doubt, the best machima that has ever been made. But I cannot leave without at least an honorable mention to the runners up, Spriggs and This Spartan Life. Both are amazing and Worthy of this list, but sprigs came out when Halo 3 was released and stopped after 13 episodes. This Spartan life was released during Halo 2 and is still in its sixth episode. Both are beaten on a wide margin by Red vs. Blue.

    Best Video- There is many videos of Halo online and I would drown in the internet sea trying to find the best video, but the best would have to go to Haloid, a cross over video that mixes a confrontation between Master Chief and Samus Aran. This video contains a lot of action packed moments and one of the best sniper kills I have ever seen the Spartan perform. Defiantly the winner.

    Best Screenshot- http://z.about.com/d/compactiongames/1/0/d/7/1/halo2_006.jpg This Screen shot is totally amazing. It shows just what Halo is supposed to be, a bunch of guys working together, playing, and having a good time. This picture captures the essence of Halo.

    Best Social Site- Again, this goes to Halopedia because you can open up forums and that is all the website is dedicated to.

    Best Fan-Made Contribution- This is just as hard as the Best video, but this has to go to Another Halo Comic Strip by Zzombie13. It holds to the Halo story line while poking fun at game flaws and other mistakes in the gaming and movie world.

    Best Halo 3 Map- This would have to go to Blackout because it reminds games of the legendary map Lockout from Halo 2. It is a cookie cutter with barley any difference. Ah, the fun times I had.
